This is an American ex-pat place. The music on live Friday night was good, rock & roll. The food was very good and the drinks well made. The staff was attentive and the crowd enjoyed the evening.

Smiley's definitely brings a smile with its quality food and beverages. Twice a week they have live entertainment in the evening, a definite bonus! The staff is friendly and welcoming and provide a lovely spot to rest from your travels.
