You might be on your way to Cape Cod, Wareham or Onset via South Carver when hunger overcomes you. Rather than faint on the spot, why not stagger into the Little Red Smokehouse? The name conjurs scruffy dudes playing dueling banjos in the back blocks of Hillbilly County. But I promise you - cross my heart and hope not to... More

Had a real hankering for ribs recently so I started searching online and through TripAdvisor. With Dave's in Harwich closed, Little Red Smokehouse was the closest to me on the Cape. Well worth the trip over the Bridge. Our Server was most pleasant and helpful in describing our options and made sure we had everything we needed. The four in-house-made... More

OK, Authentic Massachusetts Barbecue isn't a thing, but there are a couple pretty good places near where I live. One of those places is the Little Red Smokehouse. It's located in Carver (near the Edaville Railroad) right in the heart of cranberry country. I've been to this restaurant many times. Located in a small strip mall, it almost looks like... More

The restaurant looks like a unassuming bar-room from the outside but the food is divine. The mac and cheese is to die for, the meat succulent and falling from the bone, and the service attentive. The bar tender also makes very good drinks for a reasonable fee.

Have been before and wasn't that great but thought we'd give it another try. Not worth it. Food not good and all four meals came ice cold. Had to send back and who likes to do that? Never again!

Loved the Cuban and fries were excellent. Simple decor. I'll be back. It was lunch, so very quiet. It was generic, but could have been bc no one else there...Good menu.

We had not been to the Smokehouse in a while, and it seemed like a good plan for takeout with some out of town guests. Only problem was that it was post-Sunday night football, and a big Patriot's game, at that. So by the time we ordered before 6 p.m., they were out of Baby Back Ribs! We ordered the... More

I've been here quite a few times, I absolutely love BBQ, this time was different. The food was so so, but the most appalling part was at how dirty the place was and the FLIES! We were literally swatting them away the entire time we were eating. The people next to us were joking with us about dining with the... More

I've been to the Smoke House about 5 times in the last few years. I went last night with my husband and we brought some newbies with us. I have to say, the food was the best it has ever been. We ordered the pulled pork nachos, corn bread, and cranberry wings for apps. So perfect, the cranberry butter for... More

Went there with a party of six recently on a recent Tuesday evening and we all walked away with the same impression. My Brisket was loaded with fat and tasteless, it was inedible, luckily I ordered a combination plate with sausage that was passable. The onion rings had a strange batter mixture on them and tasted like they were cooked... More
