Smokey Joes 7years ago was amazing. Since then the food has become less than average. The ambiance that once existed is missing and they serve you so fast you have to wonder if the food was cooked the day before. Then they pushed us out. Sadly we won't go there again

This is a nice casual street-side restaurant in the busy hi-rise area. The ribs were very good. There are four different types that you can choose depending on your preference. I tried the Pink Iguana frozen drink but there was absolutely zero alcohol in it. I really mean that. Nothing. Stick with beer. Still, this was a reasonably priced and... More

Excellent ribs and cold beer, what is not to like! This was our second time to Aruba and both times we went to Smokey Joe's. Fun atmosphere, fun staff and a bar with anything and everything you want to drink. The food is very good and full of flavor. Eat drink and have a good time at Smokey Joe's!

Definitely the bar to go to for New England sports fan!!!!! Also the best mahi mahi. Of course the ribs and steak tips are also amazing !!!! But my favorite part of this restaurant and bar is Andre !!!!! He is by far the sweetest bar tender and waiter on the island !!!!!

As Smokey Joes does not take reservations, plan to wait awhile during peak hours. Food is prepared well and reasonably priced. Enjoy the open air seating with excellent service.

The ribs are very good when the craving comes. The atmosphere is very casual. Plan to wait a little bit during peak dinner hours as the restaurant doesn't take reservations...with good reason...they don't need to!

My husband and I went there on a Tuesday for the all you can eat ribs and my goodness was it a lot. We both only got one order. They make you get the sampler first and if you finish them and want more you can pick just one flavor. The sampler has 4 different flavors and a half a... More

Good food and fun place. The chicken was very good. Get the pink iguana drink. Just a comfortable place to relax and enjoy good food.
