“We're spoiled in that we raise much of our own food, love to cook and have friends that do the same... so our standards are high when it comes to paying for restaurant meals, especially expensive ones. Smithfields is my current favorite restaurant in Ashland. It's pricey, "meat-centric" and man, do they know how to prepare animal protein! They also do collard greens well, worthy of any soul-food cook. Most meat is locally sourced, another plus. ”

Bar
“This bar is attached to a restaurant at the Winchester Inn, across from Smithfields. GREAT mixed drinks by a barman who loves to make his own syrups and mixes from scratch. Two seats in the "nest" offer a bird's eye view of the entire place... My favorite place to sit, if not outside.”

“I say bar, but it's a sophisticated later hang out with delicious cocktails and a glorious wine selection. I would say a more "mature" vibe with amazing food. I was personally on the lookout for the best Manhattan in town, and this is where I found it. They have great selection of spirits and they make their own bitters and have naturally canned cherries (not the dyed yucky artificial ones). I love to go on lady dates here and order a cheese board and drink a nice glass of wine as well....because I looooooove Malbec!”

“Literally located right across the street, Del Rio Vineyards & Tasting Room is a must-see Winery. During summer months, they plant literal acres of flowers by the entryway and they encourage you to pick 'em! ”
