I love the feel of this restaurant. It's very quirky & warm. This was our second visit, the first being a few years ago. It's great to see the place has retained its charm. It's very laid back so don't expect waitresses fussing over you. We didn't mind this. The lamb was cooked to perfection & I would highly recommend... More

On Friday night in February we walked into The Smokehouse without a reservation as it had been recommended on Trip Advisor. We were seated upstairs near the front window. I was shocked when I saw the state of the upholstery. It was faded pale pink velvet but so filthy I didn't want to sit on it. There was a big... More

Found this place when looking for a steak restaurant in Killarney. Really liked it. Very good food, great atmosphere and overall a great spot. Will come back and would highly recommend.

A great antidote to some of the touristy stuff in Killarney, both my wife (steak) and I (monkfish/chicken) enjoyed it. We visited in the middle of February and half the town was closed but this place was a diamond in the rough. Didn't have a reservation but we got a table anyhow - the place was busy and it's easy...

We had breakfast here last weekend and it was very good. On entering the restaurant we found the atmosphere to be cosy and relaxing. The food on offer was varied and the person serving was flexible in changing the items if required. When the food arrived it was tasty and plentiful. The entire bill was very good value for money....

We ate here for dinner, I had the goats cheese and steak and my boyfriend had the ribs and steak. All of it was gorgeous and very tasty, except the goats cheese which was burnt and tasteless. Its a really funky and cool environment and the staff are very well trained and lovely. You can't book so there's a lot... More

Fab ambiance, quirky decor, delicious food will definitely be back. Just a few words to describe our experience in The Smokehouse. The music was loud enough to know it's on but just to create an atmosphere, staff were helpful, gorgeous steaks - baked potato a nice surprise on the menu instead of the normal chips...had them anyway as a side!...

I'll keep it simple. Ambiance quirky in a good way. Music perfect not too loud but load enough that you can't be heard by the next table. Service fantastic, very polite and genuine. Food was amazing, best fillet steak I've ever tasted, my girlfriend had chicken which was also very good. All the sides were top quality. Desert in a... More
