“Lovely food”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We popped into Smyth's for an early evening meal. There were a few other diners there when we arrived and we were greeted by a lovely lady who quickly provided us with menus. The (evening?) menu has a good variety to choose from and there is also a specials board. We ordered the cajun chicken burger and the beef and Guinness stew (that night's special). The food arrived promptly and was both plentiful and tasty. A nice place, pleasant staff and good food.

“Decent Lunch”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I stopped here for a quick bite to eat with a friend recently. It was pretty good. I had the lasagna which I was happy with. My friend ordered the curry and adored it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The two meals came in large portions and with drinks the overall price ended up being very reasonable. Overall it was a good experience.

“good food at an affordable price”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Freshly made food, great tasting and good size portions with excellent service and reasonable value.
We would go back again when next in area. Plus we asked several local shops to recommend a good place to eat and they all said the same place.

“Special dinner at Smyth's”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I was a guest at dinner at Smyth's in late Nov '13 and really enjoyed myself, great atmosphere, great food and really reasonable prices. Service on both bar and restaurant was prompt and efficient without being rushed. And their pint of Guinness will not be bettered anywhere, like new milk. There was no rush home from any of our group after dinner although we were from a widely spread geographical area. It was early hours next morning before anybody left. And there was nobody calling "time". Both bar and restaurant are decorated with pictures of time past and one could easily spend a few hours taking them in. I was also told that there is a story behind many of them which Keiran is willing to share in quieter moments.Definitely a reason for another visit.

Thank you for reviewing us here on Tripadvisor. We're delighted that you enjoyed the party as well as the food and pints. A lot of customers enjoy looking at the old photographs, particularly when they recognise faces from the past and Ciaran is always glad of the opportunity to share any information or stories of Ballinamore.

Happy New Year Andrew and please call in if you're ever passing through.
