Their pulled pork plate is amazing!! I also love their corn bread and hush puppies. Good place to hang with friends or go on a date.

Not much to say here other than the BBQ was great and the craft beer menu was surprisingly deep. We sat in the bar with our 5-month old and had an excellent dinner. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Smokey Barque is a "must visit" place. As others have noted, the ambiance is excellent in Old Frankfort, just across the street from a park, nestled among quaint shops. The menu is eclectic, with something for everyone. And the staff was friendly and welcoming.

We absolutely loved this place! The outdoor eating atmosphere was excellent, with the city park across the street. There was a little art/music festival going on. All of the BBQ sauces were fantastic! In fact, we purchased all four of them to bring home! I was completely won over by the Grabber Cheeseburger! Have been there twice now, and I... More

Went there on a Friday night and there was some good and some average. The good: The atmosphere is really good. They have nice outdoor seating across from a small park and a very nice view. They have a nice beer selection and lots of food options on the menu. The sweet potato tots were excellent, along with the mac... More

Ate for lunch after Smokey's service was good but the food was excellent. We had bbq nachos that were to die for. Everyone else had bbq sandwiches (brisket, pulled pork) delicious!

This is not a good place to host a banquet if you received the service we did! 50 guests- one bar person who acted as a server because the original server left to do something and did not return for about one hour! As a result, dishes were not cleared from the tables, food was not replenished unless we specifically... More

We ate here as a group and among the 8 of us, sampled a lot of the menu. When it was good, it was very good, but when it was bad it was awful. The good included the pulled pork, burnt ends and ribs. The pork was probably the best of the evening among all of our plates. The bad... More

Just came home from here! It was great. There are four different types of BBQ sauces at the table. I had the burnt ends and have got to tell you they are probably the best I've had! We also had the peach sangria. Yum yum yummy! Will definitely go back again. The wine walk today was also fun!
