This is more a bar scene atmosphere with tables all around as well. Service was good, food was good. It's an upbeat crowd, social spot for locals to meet. If passing through and just want a quick bite, it's a good choice.

I was in town visiting my mother, so we decided to try SMOKEYS for lunch on St. Patty's Day. Well, it was such a let down. On their special menu, I chose the Corned Beef Reuben, and my mother chose the COD Filet Sandwich. soo disappointed!! My Reuben sandwich came out on cold rye bread (not grilled) cold greasy cheese,... More

We had a gift certificate for Smokey's and took another couple with us. First, the drinks were expensive...gin and tonic in a small glass, beer was good. There are lots of choices on the menu, our food was okay, but nothing to write home about. The wait staff was slow, but that might have been a kitchen issue. We have... More

Have been to Smokey's a few times over the last year. Place is always pretty busy-which is a good sign. Food is very good. Will go back again.

Less than 10 minutes from Mountain Creek. Went over Presidents Day weekend--not crowded yet service was veeeery slow. Wraps and sandwiches are huge. Wings were overcooked and pulled pork sandwich had terrible bbq sauce. The buffalo chicken sandwich and chicken cutlet BLT were excellent. It took over a half hour for our food and yet restaurant was not crowded. Took... More

We come here often and the food is always good. We went there during a very busy time in the evening and we still received great service with a very pleasant server. We'll be back for sure!

I went there for a casual dinner with my husband, and we both enjoyed it. The prices are reasonable, the wait staff was friendly (and really hustling), and we enjoyed everything we ordered. The wings appetizer was particularly tasty and highly recommended.

Dropped in for some of Smokey's great wings and was not disappointed! Had the Dingoe and the Blue Cheese sauce. And I love the Pulled Pork Potato Skins! So good! My wife had the Personal Margherita pizza and was reminded WHY she lives to come here! We drive an hour to get here and we're leaving happy!
