Historic Restaurant Chronicles - Vol. 5

The Historic Smithville Inn - Galloway, New Jersey

The Historic Smithville Inn, located at 1 N. New York Road (Route 9), Galloway, NJ, was built over 200 years ago. The original structure was a one-room stagecoach stop for people traveling from New York down to Cape May. The original owner, James Baremore, was not initially an innkeeper - the building was his house. He was a particularly friendly man who allowed people to stop and stay at his home while traveling. Word of his kindness soon spread and many people were making stops into his home. Eventually, he became an innkeeper and turned his house into an inn which now bears the name, The Historic Smithville Inn. The building was reconstituted in the 1940s and 1950s into the restaurant that you can visit today.

The Historic Smithville Inn boasts scenic views overlooking Lake Meone, private dining rooms with fireplace, banquet rooms, a tavern and entertainment. The Inn is open Mondays through Sundays, 11:30am-3:30pm for lunch and 4:30pm-9pm for dinner; it is open on Sundays from 10am-1:30pm for brunch and 2pm-8pm for dinner.
