We came to Red Wing on the start of a motorcycle trip. We asked locals where they'd recommend for dinner being that we had found ourselves in a hurricane. The SMOKIN oak was the answer....horrible. It should be called the chokin oak. Brisket was like taffy, but more chewy and less flavor. Baked beans...awful. The steak salad was even horrible.... More

We were in Red Wing just yesterday and decided to try this place out despite some reviews to the negative side, and found these reviews could not be more wrong. The aroma coming in the door was great, service was superb and the food nothing short of fantastic. I had the Memphis style pulled pork, and it was simply the... More

Came up to visit family and stopped by this place. The cheese curds were very good. Also liked the fact I could get beef stroganoff here, which is very hard to find in my neck of the woods. The brisket was also excellent. Overall a pretty good experience.

This restaurant was a bit out of the busy area of town and very easy to find. As we came in the door we were greeted with wonderful smells and the site of a very large rotisserie. I had the 4-rib dinner and it was so tender and tasty that I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves smokey... More

When my boy friend and I ate here I asked the staff person if I could trade my barbeque baked beans for something else she told me I could change it for mixed veg's. Now to me mixed veg's are carrots, peas and green beans. They did not say vegetable medley that has peppers and onions in it. I went... More

The restaurant is located along MN Hwy 61 in Red Wing MN and sits in front of a Country Inns and Suite's hotel. The exterior is designed with a log cabin look to it, giving it a northern Minnesota appearance. As you enter the building, you are greeted by a large wood burning rotisserie with dozens of chickens baking in... More

We only ate here once, it is right next door to the Country Inns, so very convenient if you are staying there. The food was very good and we thought it was good value too.

There is nothing overly fancy about this restaurant. But the food was really good and the wait staff were courteous and helpful. For Red Wing, one thing that is nice about this place is that you don't have to search for parking like you do in the downtown area. We would recommend this to others. We had the brisket and... More

I can honestly say that we've never had a bad experience in all the times we've eaten at The Smokin Oak. Food excellent, service prompt and you'll love the smell when you walk in the door. The only thing missing from our last visit Sunday was the lemon cake. Please bring this back, I will drive the 1 hour from... More
