Shared the jerk chicken/barbeque ribs/brisket with cajun sauce. Brisket was awesome - chicken was good and the bbq ribs were ok(a little dry for my taste). They have the best sides anywhere - I had the potato salad(very good) and my buddy had the macaroni cheese which he sad was very good. I think the 3 of us tried 6... More

Went here for dinner during a girls weekend. Ended up sitting in the bar area and had great service. All of the food was good but you have to order the macaroni and cheese-amazing!

My husband and I ate here for the first time on Sunday. Warning - if you want to eat at Smalley's on a Saturday, be prepared to wait as it is very popular. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich (which comes with one side - I had the sweet potatoes with carmelized pork) and I took half of the sandwich... More

My husband and I went here for dinner on a Friday night and we will be going back. We had the fish tacos and the pulled pork sandwich which was excellent. They do have a decent size craft beer selection for a smaller restaurant. This is a great place for families, couples or singles. This is a great place to... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch after sightseeing. What a treat! Great food (melt in your mouth jerk chicken and shrimp, curried grilled veggies, creative salads, fun kids' menu, etc.) and really attentive service. They use real pimento wood for their jerk dishes, and you can certainly tell the depth of flavor the wood smoke imparts to the food.... More

Another visit to Smalleys and another great meal. We called ahead and put our name on the list, walked right in. Po Boy Clam sandwich is awesome. Nothing else to say.

4 of us went after seeing this place on Diner's, Drive ins & Dives. It surpassed my expectations! Great service, amazing atmosphere in an old brick building. Try the jersey pork tacos and you won't be sorry!

We needed a place to eat in Stillwater on 7/24/14 and this place came highly recommended. 5 of us ordered a variety of dishes. All 5 were disappointed with what we got. ALL of the BBQ items (except) the Chicken was Dried out and tough. Two in our party had ribs. They were nearly uneatable and both had trouble getting... More

My husband is a bit of a BBQ guy. (Competitions and such) We had high hopes but sorry no good. The brisket was more sauce than smoke. You could hardly taste anything but sauce. Ribs were the same story. The location and service are good but don't go for the BBQ.

As a resident, I was excited when they opened a new BBQ. After an initial bad experience with weight staff and mediocre rubs, I did not come back for a few years. After recently trying again, I have to say the meat was dried out, food pricy, and atmosphere dingy. There are many better places to eat in our town,... More
