My girlfriend and I have visited Smokey Joe's for 6 consecutive years. I have always had an excellent lunch or dinner at this restaurant. We find Smokey Joe's an excellent choice for a a laid back casual meal. Never once have we had a bad experience and I would estimate we've eaten here at least 10+ times. I would highly... More

The original ribs were so good we went back twice in one week! The cocktails are served in mason jars. :)

We arrived 10-5-14, nice and hungry from the 4 hour plane ride. Smokey Joe's was our spot. No second thoughts. We were graving those home fries all the way here. As always, our meals were scrumptious. We no we can never go wrong with Smokey Joe's we ate there last night too!!!!!!!

First of all it is a family restaurant. No blaring music or half dressed waitresses. The ribs are outstanding. The sauce is amazing and the portions are very generous. There seems to always be a lineup so clearly its not just my opinion. We usually dine there twice during our 1 week vacation.

Delicious back ribs. Classic recipe is the best option. Good service. The original ribs. You can choose an option to taste all baby back ribs recipes. Prices are ok. Good family choice. You will not regret. Waiting for being sitted is quite fast. Excellent food quality.

We first visited this place in 2012 and the food was excellent. Unfortunately the second trip in 2014 was far less good. The ribs were very fatty and the coconut shrimp was chewy and stale. Hopefully it was just an off visit and it won't be as bad again. We'll go back but with caution...

We have been to Aruba three times now and always go to Smokey Joe's. While not fine dining, there is plenty of that elsewhere on the Isalnd, it is a fun confort food evening.

Meaty, smokey, delicious ribs. Jamaican chicken was superb as well. Get the "Home Fries" as one of your sides...you won't be disappointed. Great service, reasonably priced and did I mention delicious!!! You have to go there at least once on your trip

Smokey Joe's has been our choice for our first night meal for the last few years and we also go back several times during our two week stay. Convenient location right across the street. Excellent ribs - Jamaican jerk are the best, with a side of black beans and rice you can't go wrong. We typically sit at the bar... More
