Wonderful place for breakfast, especially the Spanish Omlette- also like their bacon, toast & home fries. The service is fast & friendly. We rode our motorcycles from Fort Myers just to try their Breakast, well worth the trip. We'll be back soon.

Smokehouse is a Punta Gorda classic. Biscuits and Gravy are their claim to fame and they do them well. Home made and delicious. Great eggs, potatoes and gravy are good too. They even have toaster pancakes for the under 5 set!

The Smokehouse has been one of the Best Breakfast/Lunch Restaurant the Charlotte County for as long as I have lived here. The Biscuits & Gravy is always worth the trip, but all of the menu items are very good. Small dining room so you may have to wait and bring cash, no Credit Cards accepted.

This is a small family business which has limited hours and cash only but the food is great and service is genuine. Breakfast or lunch are great biscuits and gravy worth every penny

Stopped in for breakfast and had biscuits and gravy. Biscuits were flaky and fresh. The sausage gravy was the best I've had in Punta Gorda.

When visiting a small town very important thing to ask is where do the locals go. The smoke house is that place Picnic style eating you might come on in a stranger .. But leave being part of the family. Come with a empty stomach lol leave the tight pants at home. Everything is made fresh daily no frozen entrees... More

When I first discovered Punta Gorda, Fl. in the late 1970's while visiting friends who had moved South from New England and had discovered this wonderful "old Florida" city with it's unique location on Charlotte Harbor, I was also introduced to Breakfast at the Smoke House. It's located a little off the main thoroughfare and away from the bustle of... More
