Went here for lunch. It was nearly empty. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen but it took an hour from when we sat down to get our food. The food, when it came, was mediocre. After waiting an hour, you'd expect it to be piping hot- my food was lukewarm borderline cold. I got the crab cake... More

Nice place that will take you to great dinner or to why are we here? Wife & myself will go down for dinner specials & enjoy a lot of the food they have. Sometimes just getting seated is a adventure. Last night took my daughter & grandchildren there for dinner. Waited ten minutes to be seated & they only had... More

Ate breakfast at Smokey Joe's and was impressed with the amount and quality of the food I was served. Great service and a view of the marina scene made it a great way to start the day. I will be back in the area, and when I'm in Chesapeake Beach, Smokey Joe's is now my go to breakfast place.

This was my son's favorite place to eat on vacation. They had plenty of things so my husband and I didn't get sick of it. It's right on the Marina and gives a great view. We were there during a fishing tournament and got to see the fish come in and also fed the ducks that came right up to... More

Good BBQ and comfort/bar food, reasonable prices, homey service. We go there when we want a no-fuss meal that satisfies.

The menu is not huge and it offers the usual burgers, barbecue and homecooked comfort food like Chicken n Dumplings, Hot Roast Beef, and Liver and Onions. This is not a place to eat if you're on a diet. The bartender, Sean and waitress named Maddie are two reasons to keep coming. And the wings - especially the Old Bay... More

Had breakfast here, and the service was awful. Took forever to get coffee refills. Waitess was just not attentive, and there was hardly anyone there.

We sat in the bar area. Our drink order was taken right away and served soon. Had to flag the waiter to order appetizers, but they were delicious when they arrived.

From the time you walk and and are greeted, until you leave, everyone is super nice. We ate breakfast there everyday during our stay. Reasonably priced and good food.
