The marina is nice but there wasn't any access to breakfast, snacks or drinks. We went to the 3rd floor of the main hotel just to get a soda from vending. Dinner at Smithfield Station was very nice.

We spent several days at the Smithfield Station marina. As always, it was a wonderful experience. This was our third visit there, and we have visited in three different boats. The marina staff is both friendly and competent. The dockmaster was at hand quickly to assist with our arrival at the dock and ready to provide information about their expansive facilities and the beautiful historic town of Smithfield, which is a short walk away. Everyone with whom we had reason to interact was warm, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant is immediately adjacent to the marina and offered both indoor and outdoor dining options. We chose to sit outdoors on a lovely porch at a covered table with fans nearby. All staff were masked and attentive. We had intended a one-day stay, but storms blew in, and we stayed over. We enjoyed every minute!

Staff very helpful getting into slip with the strong current. Great place to wait out Hurricane. Restaurant on site. Lovely park with trails across the street and a short walk to historic downtown.

Great facility. Bathrooms very spacious, spotless, all ceramic tiled like-new condition. Very large showers. Nice pool dockside. Restaurant very good quality food and service. Marina staff very helpful with docking (current can be strong). Historic Smithfield very interesting - had a walking tour (group at $5 per person). This is a great getaway. Although fuel is fairly close at Brown's Marina, it would have been a plus to have fuel at Smithfield Station marina.

It is a pretty little marina, peaceful and picturesque.....the Pagan River is awesome and if you have a dinghy you can explore for miles in deep water as it winds and around every curve is a great blue heron, egrets, osprey..... The restaurant here is wonderful and everything clean and tidy

Very nice Marina close to town with marsh views. Opposite the Windsor Castle Park which is excellent for a variety of trails suitable for a run or walk through the Marsh Land and woods. Also has kayaks for rent. Town is charming. Food is nothing special at both the “highly rated” Marina restaurant and the brewery in town. But this is well worth a visit. Only irritant was a party with a band going on at the pool on the Saturday night, up to 11am, which was quite loud and next to where we tied up. We would rather have had a string quartet! Watch out for the James River Bridge which you pass to get there. It has clearance of only 60ft and if your a sailboat with a higher mast you have to call ahead a couple of hours‭ (757-247-2133‬), to schedule a raise. The bridge tender is very friendly and is happy to accommodate. We will be back!

Both times we've stayed at Smithfield Station we were met by one of the owners who expertly tied us to floating face dock, then told us what we needed to know about the marina and Smithfield. Lovely area with friendly residents. Marina was clean, protected and quiet.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the terrific review you guys and we are glad you enjoyed our quaint town! Hope to see you back soon and let us know if you need help with anything else. Randy Pack, President, Smithfield Station

Have visited here a few times. Great destination on the Pagan River, off of the James. Great restaurant, small pool, and clean restrooms/shower. Very nice floating docks, and dock master Brian Pack always ready to lend a hand. Easy walk to historic downtown Smithfield and Windsor Castle Park. Mind the depths along the Pagan River, and make sure you have enough water.

This is a beautiful marina. I lived across the water and got to see the blazing flame licked look to the waters at sunset, the reflections of boat lights (especially when fully rigged for parade) on glassy clear water at dusk, the sounds of diesels chugging along in and out echo across the water like fog caressing the ground, and the wild life was amazing. Ducks, geese, fish, crab, crayfish, deer and more. Stunning vista but I moved away to Texas. The only downer was the light house at Smithfield Station. The room was amazing and beautiful, but the hot tub controls were shot and we had to sit in hot water till it cooled off, and no bubbles. Hope they fixed it by now. The food on the other hand is to die for. So delicious, alluring, soothing, tasty! Mmm.
