The food is excellent. If you can put up with the tired decor and insufferable wait staff you will have an excellent evening. Had one of the best beef filets I have ever had. Perfectly cooked. The pickled beets and cottage cheese are to die...More

Business dinner at an old standby - steak was tough, drinks were watered down, soup never arrived, but salad with blue cheese french was great. Service was friendly but a little too casual with not a high level of attention to detail. I'm going to...More

As I said above, Smoky's Club, in my opinion ranks from average to not quite very good. The restaurant seems to consistently get excellent ratings but I'm not quite sure why. I suspect it is the aura or mystique that hangs over Smoky's. the decor...More

The food here was great – we had the fish fry and hash browns. However, the service was perfunctory at best. Our server gave us no information about specials and had no clue as to any of the beers available. He was very rushed and...More

Excellent Cod and Perch. Get the full Smoky's experience at a very reasonable price. Bread, Vegetable Plate, Salad, Soup & the best tasting fish we have had in a long time. Best wait staff in the city. This is a true Wisconsin Supper Club.

On November 4th, 2016 myself and 16 other family members met at Smokies for a family gathering. The initial service was adequate such as filling our water glasses and taking bar orders. The waiters obviously pushed their signature hash browns, but what they failed to...More

The steaks were dry and tasteless. Wait staff were clueless and tried to over charge us. The place looked like it was decorated by the visually impaired. Any decent Wisconsin supper club shouldn't run out of prime rib on a Saturday night.

Three ordered steak and were happy. I ordered vegetable stir fry with salad and was not. Being diabetic, I was surprised it was sweet (too sweet for me) and the vegetables were over cooked. It was served over a rice blend. My concern is that...More

We loved our dinner at Smoky's Club. The atmosphere is old school supper club and the drinks are made just right. The Steak is the best, but I had the best walleye ever at this place. The servings are huge, and delicious, and the service...More

Sorry for the tardy response. Regarding Smoky's gluten free options I cannot comment. Thankfully, I do not have to be concerned about gluten free dining. Rest assured, I will keep that in the back of my mind in future... More
