We were staying at Sugar Ridge, and on a Friday night saw smoke billowing down the road. This is what they do, smoked ribs, chicken, pork. It's the off season so selection is limited, but their food is off the hook. So good! Please please get the Mac and cheese. It is high quality cheese, so decadent. Not macaroni pie. Like Southern soul food. Rum drinks are strong, too. This is a hidden gem.

Wanted to go here after reading all the reviews. Have to say I was disappointed. Given large outdoor grill I expected the food to be cooked on it. Had the jerk chicken which was but tough. Large portions. Friendly owner and very quiet when we went so maybe it gets into full swing when it's high season.

If you are staying in Jolly Harbour, then this place is definitely worth a visit - though it seems not many people know about the West Coast Village - including the information booth lady!
As we visited in the low season, the restaurants down there were only open a couple of nights a week, and at Smoke Ks, the service was a bit slow, but the food was definitely worth waiting for, and the waitress was very helpful and attentive! The meat was so lovely and tender, and fell off the bone! My husband and I shared an $80 XCD combo, and with the two sides, it was more than enough food for us! The prices did seem a bit steep but when we saw the amount of meat, I'd say they were spot on and well worth paying!

You MUST go to this restaurant - but be armed with mozzie repellent as there was quite a few about because of the lake (sit upstairs)!

Smoke K's is run by the nicest friendliest men. The baby back ribs were so tender and the sides (mac and cheese!) were delicious! A lovely tabby kitten named Smokey is the hostess. She greeted us and let us pet her, she is charming. There is ample seating.

We wanted basic jerk bbq chicken and the friendly guys here did it wonderfully. The chicken was enough yet we were surprised with the lemongrass jerk side sauce that was fantastic, add in good conversation, being local and a rum punch and we're more than fine
