Description: The award-winning Restaurant at Smithfield Station is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner and offers a variety of fine cuisine. Renowned for an extensive menu that places an emphasis on Fresh Local Seafood that combines the flair of legendary Smithfield Ham into many of their dishes. Beautiful Water Views, Reservations Recommended.The Smithfield Station IBX Bar & Grill is also located next door and offers the same great view, but with a more casual setting and great bar specials.

“Beautiful View but an average meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the water. The server was excellent, but the table we were taken to was right next to the coffee pots and servers station so it was noisy and just not pleasant. We asked to be moved, but they said they could not reseat us, even though there were several tables empty and it was early Friday night.

The food did not match up to the views, it was just ok, nothing special, and did not go to this beautiful establishment for average.

They say to do the Sunday Buffet, so maybe next time we will do Sunday mornings rather than Friday nights.

“Award winning food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

The Crabcakes are amazing. You may have them as a main dish for dinner or as a sandwich for lunch. Also had the '57 burger. Huge and tastey!

“Smithfield ham surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

My wife and I shared our dinners made with ham....both were outstanding. She had a chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese plus a cream sauce inside the breast....I had a rockfish stuffed with ham and encrusted with sweet potato....both dinners were incredible. If you happen to be in Smithfield Virginia don't miss this place....if not, plan to go there if you are within driving distance. It is a scenic ride from Virginia Beach or Norfolk.

Very nice decor with great waterfront view. We had no reservation but were seated promptly. The menu had a good selection and the service and friendlyness was very nice. Highly recommended!
