SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE, Va. (WFXR) — A new restaurant is set to open this spring for boaters, residents and visitors to Smith Mountain Lake.

Napoli By The Lake will open at Bernard’s Landing under the same ownership as Napoli Cowboy on Burnt Chimney Road in Wirtz.

Napoli Cowboy has been named Best Restaurant at Smith Mountain Lake for the past three years by Trip Advisor and The Laker Magazine and Lake Living magazine.

Napoli By The Lake will bring a different menu to Bernard’s Landing that fits with lake living for both adults and children.

This will allow them to expand their menu and offer many of their specials as regular items.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to open a second restaurant at Smith Mountain Lake. By having this restaurant on the water, we will be able to increase our reach to the community as guests can come by land and water. It also gives us the opportunity to offer new menu options as well as many of our specials from our current location. We are also working with Bernard’s Landing Resort and Events Center to expand outdoor dining options and have a great bar working under state mandates.”

Ray Wilson, owner of Napoli By The Lake

Napoli By The Lake plans on opening Thursdays through Sundays, starting this spring, between 4 and 9 p.m.

As the lake season arrives and they work to build their staff, the owners plan on opening for lunch and on additional days
