"Your Guide to All Things Food Around Smith Mountain Lake"

Just Click Your Mouse. Pick Your Restaurant. Eat Great Food.


There’s no doubt about it — our Smith Mountain Lake community is growing fast.  We enjoy a growing number of dining options: breakfast from a gas & go or favorite diner, lunch from a fast food or deli place, and then dinner [with perhaps a perfectly crafted Virginia wine] from a widening circle of local fine dining establishments. There are plenty of tried and true local favorites, and there may be some new places that you’ve not had the chance to dine at yet.

According to a study released in December 2011 by the National Restaurant Association, Americans now spend roughly 47.9% of their food budget in restaurants. Restaurants expect to take in revenues of more than $537 billion in 2012, a whopping 67% increase since 1997.

Our SMLdining.com goal is simple:  to be your one stop information guide to all things food around Smith Mountain Lake. We currently have over 50 restaurant names & phone numbers listed; all within 20 miles of the Route 122 bridge over the lake. The restaurants are cross referenced coded by cuisine. In the near future, we will be adding links to restaurant websites, menus, photos, reviews, and perhaps a chat forum.

We’d also like to hear from you:  the patrons of SML’s dining scene.  Please call or email us with your comments. We’d also love to publish your review of a local eatery; please call for details. =)

Thanks for taking a look and bon appetit !
