Not only was our waitress uneducated in her job, Misty I believe was her name, but the bartenders behind the bar (i only experienced... More

We went here with a friend from the area, we likely wouldn't have known about it otherwise, but were very glad we did. The atmosphere is fun and easy going. Everyone from the bartender, to the waitress and the other patrons were friendly and joking around. The food was good and the drinks were great.

Had a decent burger at the smokestack bar and grill while staying in Camden. Unfortunately they seemed to be quite understaffed, as I saw only one waitress in the dining area. She did her best, actually a really good job considering the workload, but she really needed some help in order to provide timely service.

This is a wonderful space in a 170-year-old mill building which has been the location of a couple of sports-bar-restaurants since its conversion in the early 1990s. (NOTE: At the time of its opening I was working at a desk job upstairs and always found it hard to concentrate after "Miller Time" began boisterously in the pub when it was... More

We don't usually frequent sports bars. We've been to the Smokestack 3 times in the last couple of weeks to watch the US Open and have been pleasantly surprised. Don't expect much but pub fare - having said that, the nachos and fries are really good!!!!! I'd suggest sitting at the bar to get good service.

If i could give this place a 0 i would. very dirty inside and out, the outside seating they have to offer is covered in cigarette buts, the food wasn't worth a penny in my pocket, and the service was unbelievable. I decided i would sit at the bar, thinking i could grab a quick drink maybe an appetizer and... More

There are countless amazing restaurants up and down the coast, but if you're traveling with your family and want a simple, casual atmosphere with surprisingly tasty food, this is your place. We didn't try anything crazy - pizza, burger, fettuccine alfredo and salads for the fam - but each one of us commented on how great everything was. I personally... More

The food was decent and the service was ok. Our server was the only one working and had a ton of tables. I thought she did a fantastic job considering how busy she was. The food left something to be desired but it was ok.

We were in Camden for the high school drama festival. This was recommended by our Inn owner. By far our 19 year old son's favorite place in Camden. You can feel the vibrations from the waterfall outside the windows. The food was good too, we had burgers and pizza! A local gem
