Smith Mountain Lake has a large variety of restaurants; a few that are somewhat formal, but most eateries here are very casual, relaxed, and informal. A number of restaurants on the lake are even accessible by boat, which makes them favorites for both visitors and locals alike. We have great pizza places, fast food, a more formal restaurant run by a celebrated chef, perhaps the best ice cream in America, and everything in between.
