We offer a large menu, including pub fare, burgers, steaks, seafood, and delicious hand tossed pizzas. Our menu is complimented by the large bar and friendly staff.

Party atmosphere, bar / with eats

Nice view of the falls. Large group accommodated. Old mill interior, could have been warmer , bathroom extremely cold. Pleasant server. Pool tables, locals, sports on tv. Some unusual menu items, fried green beans, for example. Loud, casual, nice hangout.

This place is awesome if your in Camden, It has an old style look to it (mill style) with rough wood bards and all wooden seating. But it is all clean and nicely polyurethane and painted ceiling. It has an AMAZING view of the waterfall by the Camden River. The food is really good I've eaten a few times here... More

Comfortable bar and table area to watch a variety of sports on the 4-5 screens. Nice selection of beers that are served cold and graciously. Food is typical sports bar food, the usual classic comfort food for sports fans. Juicy burgers and tasty fries. Best sports viewing option in Camden.

Food was fine - exactly what you expect from a sports bar. Lots of televisions. Comfortable place for a family looking to watch the game.

Hard to see the place from the street. Took ten minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us. Ordered a pizza took 40 minutes for the pizza, hope your not in a hurry. Pizza was good but not 40 min good. Service is terrible

This is a big rustic bar with a great selection of draft beer. The view out the window is beautiful! Bartender was very friendly even to annoying tourists! We didn't eat there, but the food looked good. Will go back next summer for sure.

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
