My wife wanted to find a place to hangout on a rainy day....and shoot pool. Found this place from the web and glad we did. And we did just that...old pool table and then sat outside on the patio.... Simple bar with lots of TVs and a nice cigar humidor to find a nice selection of cigars. Beer is cold,... More

As it's name suggests this is a great bar for those of the population who still are slaves to nicotine. Can be really noisy and it can be a while to et served but it has great atmosphere and is like going back 30 years in time.

We have been coming to Joe's three years now. When we first started coming it was a less popular bar and it has since gained a lot of attention. We enjoy the setting, the ability to play our own music (Jukebox), and the staff. The bartenders, bouncers and bar backs have always been helpful and our prompt with our drinks.

I am often in the mood for a cigar and getting smoked - smoking joes has a wide selection of milfs and honeys that wont disappoint - the crowd is a mixed bag of low-lifes - but don't let that fool you - the sleazier the place - the easier the women

Always busy. Bar seems to have a variety of wine, beer and spirits. Music can be too loud at time. Cigar choices the best in area at reasonable prices. Friendly staff.......

Went there last Friday night, place was packed and everything was good. Then an altercation broke out in the middle of the bar between two patrons . The bartender Kyle jumped the bar and choked one of the aggressors by the throat and shoved him into the crowd. I was talking to two girls who I got shoved into because... More

I really like Smokin joes, great atmosphere, awesome music but there is one bartender named Kyle. He has been really unfriendly and rude the last two times we have been in there. I have asked several times for a drink and he deliberately ignores me, and then when I finally do get his attention he gives me an attitude and... More

I have always been a fan of Joes. I kind of liked it better when they only served beer and wine, because you could go in and watch a game in peace, even on a Friday or Saturday. It would never get so crowded that you couldn't find a seat. However, ever since they got their full liquor license, they... More

What a fun place I came across today as I was walking through downtown Sarasota. I forgot my cigars at home and stopped in for cigar and a drink. Smoking Joe's made me feel very welcome. They have an excellent humidor with Terry good cigars at exceptionally reasonable prices. Being able to have a cigar and a drink in a... More
