Only tried here during Taste of Bethesda, 2018. If I could rate two different ways, one for most people, one for foodie... 3 star is for most people, 2 for foodies... Nothing to write home about. If they had marinated the meat longer, the flavor would get into the meat more. For pork (since I had ribs), suggest marinate for at least 2 days...

After some bar hopping while visiting a friend on a Friday night we came across Smoke. We weren't hungry so can't tell you about the food but the bartender was friendly, beer selection was good and the patrons welcoming.

I met my son here for lunch and it wasn't much to look at but the aromas and friendly staff and patrons made it a keeper. They have a smoker on the premises which was producing the good smells. We had the pulled port and the brisket sandwiches. Delicious! They made their on sauces on the table in a basket. There was a bar with tap, bottled beer and spirits.

Only visited during Taste of Bethesda. It was hard to expect really hot ribs being outdoor in a tent but the ribs fell right off the bones and it was reasonably priced. Will definitely go try the restaurant and hope for even better experience!

Second disappointment today. After the first time flopped I thought I'd give them another chance, but they failed again. The brisket does not taste smoked at all, the cornbread is dry, the sweet potato chips were stale and the coleslaw portion does not deserve to be called portion. Staff not interested in guests. Never again!
