My husband and I visit here nearly once a week for a beer or two and dinner. In the greater Springfield area, its the only place to find a decent selection of craft beers. The taps change often and offer a variety of styles to choose from. There is also a large selection of bottles. The atmosphere isnít fancy but its comfortable. I bring all my out of town guests here.

Came here with my buddy Pat (skibumphishead) and girl Brie in October 2010 while back in Western Mass for Phish and Phriends. This is a cool place. Basically looks like those pool halls you see in the movies, with tons of tables, air hockey and all that jazz. Had some pretty nice stuff on draught and the manager had a bunch of stuff from his "personal stash" which he offered us upon patís inquisition. Very nice dude and good beers shared with good friends.

I moved to Springfield and I assumed that I would not find a go-to beer bar. I was ready to drive to Northampton every time I wanted a craft or rare beer at a pub. I was wrong. Smithís has everything I want under one roof: pool tables, Boston sports on TVs, great service, great food and one of the best beer lists in Western Mass.
I am working on the mug club and stopping by at least once a week. If you are in Springfield or driving through, you should stop in. It is only a couple of blocks from Rt.91 and it is the best bar in the city.
