Jerk done right

The barbecue combo where you can choose three meats and two sides is a decent size to split between two people. Haven't tried the shrimp, but everything else is delicious.

Excellent wings, shrimp & BBQ. Love sitting by the indoor fireplace. Some meals are a little expensive for what they are but we've never had a bad meal.

Brought my son on my second visit. He ordered the wings, I had a dinner. He shared some wings and I shared some biscuit. We smoke different things when he is home and this evening we decided on things we want to cook this summer. The food was great, best tots we ever had. Food comes out fast. Very good... More

Smalley's Caribbean Barbeque is located on South Main Street in downtown Stillwater in a small retail mall (the building looks like an old industrial brick building that has been remade into a trendy mall). The restaurant is also about 100 yards from the St Croix River. Stillwater is about 20 miles northeast of St. Paul and about 30 miles northeast... More

After a day on the golf course my wife and I stopped in to eat at Smalley's. I had previously watched the triple D episode that featured Smalleys and it looked like a fun place with good food. We were not disappointed. We started with wings (hot pepper) which we both enjoyed. I love barbeque and went for the pork... More

We had the fried green tomatoes and empanadas as appetizers and both were very good. The empanadas had a very spicy salsa on the bottom of the plate and a yummy coleslaw on the top. For my meal I chose the smoked pork tacos. These are what they are known for. I didn't like these as much as the appetizers,... More

They have a great rum selection and many tasty apps and entrees that are different than the norm. It is nice to sit on the back patio with a beer in the evening and hang out.

We had the beef and cilantro empanadas. Delish!!! 4 come with the appetizer. We had a couple drinks too. I had a mojito and got a free birthday shot. It was potent! We would visit again.

This was my third time to Smalley's and it was good as always! We arrived to a very busy restaurant and told 45-55 minute wait but we could grab a drink in the bar. After a very quick 25 minute wait we were seated at our table. We had reviewed the menu in the bar and were able to order... More
