1. I didn’t know they had anything other than standard bar food.
2. They have 2-3 live performers every night and I assumed they were the sort that just scream covers over you while some drunkard chants “Free bird!” all night.
Not so at Smiley’s. The music last night was light, folk-y enjoyable dinner music. I was pleasantly surprised. Now I know.
As for the food… My entree came with a house salad which includes grapes, walnuts, apples and bleu cheese in an apple cider vinaigrette.
Stew started with the sweet potato goat cheese wontons.
For dinner I had the baked acorn squash with plum apricot chutney, basmati rice and grilled vegetables.
And Stew had the “kind” veggie burrito.
I kind of got food envy when I tried Stew’s burrito because it was really good, but I still enjoyed my plate. I was really pleasantly surprised by Smiley’s. It was simply not at all what I had assumed it to be. We will most certainly be back for more.
