Brisket sandwich was small but delicious. Okra was spot on. Chicken was delicious. Crispy skin. Ribs were tender fell off the bone. Beans were good also. Cole slaw could have been a little creamier. Bourbon pecan pie was delicious. Wish we could go back right...More

Have visited Smoke Tree twice. The ribs and links are very good, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Will return in the near future.

Way way overpriced for very mediocre food. Ordered burnt ends that tasted like they had been in crock.pot all day not one bit of char on them. Seriously overpriced place for what we got. Ribs and brisket were very basic....save your money and go elsewhere

While the ambiance is not much, this is a place is all about the food. The staff are delightful and friendly and after numerous visits, I have not been disappointed. Good BBQ and cold beer, what is not to like.

Oooooooh, what great meal! All that we tried (burgers, brisket, chicken Caesar, sweet potato fries) were awesome. A very strong beer list, too. Best of all, the service was fantastic. Definitely make way to this funky little spot!

We had ribs and chicken wings and don't think either of them ever got near some real smoke. Guess it should just be called the Tree Bar and Grill!
