Yummy appetizers.

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... read 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

We ate here two years ago, and loved it. Our return visit was even better. We had to wait an hour for a table, but the food was definitely worth the wait. My husband and I both had the pork tacos...delicious! We also ordered the nachos...so good....comes with guacamole, cheese sauce and salsa. I definitely recommend the mango martini. Great... More

Jerk Tacos are amazing! We've been here a few times now and it has not disappointed! Also have tried the Jerk Pork and Brisket as well as the BBQ Brisket and the Jerk Chicken. The sides were every bit as good too...the Skin-On Potato Salad for example..mmmmm.

On the plus side, prices were moderate and they had a large selection of draft beers. Also, service was good and the staff tried hard to accommodate. On the minus side, food was only average. It wasn't bad, but not great.

While waiting for my take out order decided to have a tasty adult beverage. Chose a Bloody Mary and yeehaw that curled my toes! It had a kick that you just don't see coming but hit the spot on the Sunday afternoon :)

Went there to hear a band and was blown away by there Caribbean BBQ food menu! As soon as you get out of the car, the smell is amazing. The restaurant/bar is some sort of old brick building right by the river. Food was superb and drink prices reasonable. Go on a night where JunkFM is playing!
