At Smith, you’ll encounter lots of taxidermy and the feeling that a lumberjack or two might walk in at any moment, but everything else here is pretty normal and generally good. It’s kind of like having cocktails at a cabin in the woods, except you will likely not see a live bear. They also make one hell of an aperol spritz if you ask nicely for it, which is currently not found in the wilderness. This is a bar that also happens to serve a great burger and some solid appetizers.
