I prefer a more exciting eating adventure. Pricing is more reasonable than other Camden restaurants. Food choices are basic and uninspired

Great place to bring the family! Amazing view, a practical menu (something for everyone, even the little ones). It's in an old mill so it really has a great vibe, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings...and there's a bar on the other side. Oh there's also a pool table and a lovely outdoor patio. And plenty of parking right across the street... More

We wanted a good italian meal but everyplace was full up and we stumbled on to the Smokestack Grill. Kindof an out of the way place but the Pizza we ordered made up the difference. AND a large is truly a large for a change, with some different sause and ingredients that gave you a little extra boost.

We dropped in for a beer at the pub side & the bartender said she'd be with us in a couple of minutes. We waited and waited; others came in and sat at the bar and we all waited. The bartender was also the hostess and waitress for the dining room on the other side -- all by herself. Poor... More

We have a great time and awesome food every time we visit The Smokestack Grill! As a local, I do not understand many of these reviews and assume some may be other malicious locals? We really love the patio, the pool tables, televisions, and portions of food are delicious and very generous. Where the restaurant is considered a sports pub,... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Smokestack one Friday or Saturday evening to see a band that was playing. Once we arrived we found a small table in front of the bar. A waitress walked by us numerous times and it took 15 minutes after sitting down for anyone to acknowledge us and it ended up being the bartender... More

I go to the smokestack a few nights a week, and always receive good service! Its a really fun environment when they have a band or dj playing. The bartenders are nice and do a great job!

We are Friday night regulars because of the food and the service. Neither can be beaten. Our specific requests have always been catered to by the chef, the service is prompt and courteous and we have never been disappointed. While we have our favourites, we have sampled many items on the menu and found them all to be worth the... More

I have no idea how the food is at the Smokestack; I haven't eaten here in a couple of years. However, it used to have good food and has a great view of the river, especially in the winter. I needed a couple of gift certificates to thank some friends for taking care of my home when the power was... More

Just had drinks recently probably the worst service I've ever had while being out in Camden. I understand that it was busy on the eve of Thanksgiving but I was treated poorly because I wished to finish the last bit of beer in my glass. I then got a rude response from a brunette bartender when I said something. I... More
