Awesome bbq

This is a place I like to stop in at when traveling through Redwing. The chicken is done on a rotisserie over a wood fire, the pulled pork and brisket are good stuff. They also have plenty of choices in cold beer.

This was our 2nd visit this year. Both times were very good. The minute you walk in the door the aroma gets you salivating. Then right in the entry way is the fire pit with all the chickens on the rotisserie over the open oak wood fire. Restaurant is quite spacious large booths and a bar. Menu has everything you... More

Rotisserie chicken was phenomenal. Service was great. Other items... Not so much. Fajitas and burrito were not very pleasant. Fajitas were super dry. Burrito was sweet... ??? Ribs were very overlooked.

I highly encourage the stop if you're in Redwing. It has great brisket. Sweet potato fries and chicken rice soup are winners.

The Smoking Oak has delicious, smoked chicken, brisket, pork, plus much more on its menu. Nice restaurant setting with bar somewhat separated from dining area. Also has a large seating area with bar for larger parties in their lower area. Regarding giving it a 3 rating over a 4: I have personally witnessed management be extremely rude to the hostess...

I continue to go in for great BBQ for take out. Pulled pork and mashed potatoes, don't forget to get the gravy. Great service from everyone there, especially from the bar area. Very friendly and will continue to go back.

I felt the food was expensive for what we got. No better than Famous Dave's in my opinion. Love the smoker when you enter the building, but no character beyond that point.

We stopped (a party of four) to have an early Saturday dinner. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The food was delicious with lots of variety and the wait staff was very attentive. Would definitely go back.

We had a group lunch here and it was good! As you enter you see the food being cooked even before you are seated. The staff was attentive and friendly. All of the lunch dishes we had were tasty and we left happy. My only concern was minor, the place was showing wear and tear on seats, tables and especially... More
