We really enjoyed our visit. Enjoyed everything about this place, the decor, atmosphere, service, and food were all great. If you're in the mood for BBQ I don't think there is better anywhere around.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here on Saturday. The craft beer menu is extensive and the service was very good. We shared two appetizers - the crispy oysters and an appetizer platter that included chips, fried pickles,chicken wings and quesadilla. Everything was delicious. We sat on the bar side of the restaurant and it had a nice vibe. There are 5... More

Drinks are good. Outdoor bar area with live music made for a great Friday happy hour. Wings are good. Pulled pork was very mediocre. I have definitely had much better.

Saturday night was pretty crowded 20 min. wait unless u could find a seat on the bar side. we did 5 min. later. Service very average. Good beer selection. Ordered half chicken plate and the brisket plate. 4 sides, beans, mashed, mac, and cukes. Chicken really good, loved the smokey flavor of the rub and juicy. Brisket was really good... More

While waiting to attend an event at Clark University (less than 10 minutes away), my wife and I needed somewhere to eat dinner. Found this place on the Find Me Gluten-free app and wanted to give it a go. We ordered the combo platter with brisket, ribs and pulled pork. For sides, we got apple slaw and cucumber salad and...

A great meal. Watched Seahawks v Packers. Had a combo plate. Ribs,brisket and pulled pork. Great flavor. Three choices of sauce, tried them all partial to the Kansas City myself. Chipotle chicken wings were really good. Just enough spice and hood size too. Now for the service. It was ok. We sat at that the bar and the bartenders were... More

Have been here a number of times and keep coming back. We have tried other places and have not been as satisfied as our trips to smokestack. We always get the choose 3 option and always get brisket. The portion is disappointingly small but very good. Also, I don't tend to eat meat on bones but I have trended toward... More

My boyfriend and I are frequent customers at the Smokestack...The steak tips are amazing and the garlic mashed potatoes??? Nice and buttery that they are actually SHINING! If you get a drink from the bar, you HAVE to get the signature John Daly. Whether you get it in the middle of the winter or the blistering heat of the summer,... More

My wife and I were looking to explore outside of the Gardner area and try something new. We saw that this place was on phantom gourmet and were in. The place is right off the highway so finding it was no problem. It is not a fancy restaurant by any stretch but doesn't make you uncomfortable either. The food was... More
