Default The Lodge at Smith Point

My wife and I went to The Lodge At Smith Point last Friday night.
We got seated right away in the Tavern. Had cocktails in front of us lickety split.

We had the Portobello Fries and Pesto Muscles for apps. Both were very good.
We split an order of fish Taco's which were also very good.
Service was great, friendly and prompt. Both the owner and the manager introduced themselves at different times.

Very close to the marina, good service, good food, good vibe.

Yup.......we'll be back

Thumbs up

We had dinner here for the first time on Friday.

I had a Swordfish special. It was very enjoyable, cooked properly (not over cooked) with good flavor. The piece of fish was a bit small for my liking, but no need for a complaint.

Barb had a Salmon dish on their Parpadelle pasta. This was wonderful! I tasted some of her dish also and we both agreed that it was a winner!

Overall it was very good, we will be back.

Default We too

Also a first for us last Friday, 6/21. We were early (5 pm) and the dining room was quiet for the first 45 minutes or so. The bar sounded busy. Exactly what we wanted, then it started filling up. Time for us to talk, and since we were new, to talk to our waitress (Shaughnessy)about the menu. She was very good. With drinks, we had the Cheese and Charcuterie. Ample for two to share. Could have had that all night. The owner (manager? He didn't specify) stopped to chat, which was a plus. My wife had the Beet Salad with Salmon, and I had the Hanger Steak. Both were excellent. Close to the water, but no view or shorefront, so the only access is by car. Overall, a good experience and we'll go back. Loved the creative menu and specials.

I haven't read any comments about this restaurant since June; how are they faring, are they busy and well-received by the public?

I think they have done very well this summer with all the tourists, but I am not sure that the locals will support a somewhat pricey restaurant with a limited menu.

Thumbs up Inn At Smith Cove

We went yesterday for apps and cocktails again - been about a dozen times and never disappointed.
We prefer app menu as we like fish tacos, burger, Brussels and generally lighter fare than full blown menu items.
We hope they continue to do well with locals like us.

Gravy Boat, your subject line says "Inn at Smith Cove". We're talking about the Lodge at Smith Point, right?

Wish they would change out the menu for some new things. Itís been the same eight entrees ever since they opened nine months ago.

Have you tried all eight?
Maybe next time make polite suggestion! Businesses like suggestions!

No, I have not tried all eight! I donít care for all of them. Do you? Simply wishing they would add more to the menu is not being impolite. And FYI, when Mark has come to chat at our table, we have made suggestions!

Driving back from Alton this past Saturday we were quite shocked to see that the parking lot was almost empty at 6:45pm !

Perhaps many others are tired of the same 8 items??
