This is the first time we have tried Center Street Smoke House after hearing good things about it. We found it to be a delightful local place to eat. We were seated immediately and in no time had our drinks and appetizer brought to us. The staff was very friendly and diligent in making sure everything was ok. We chose... More

We booked the upstairs for a soccer team (totalling about 30 people with kids and parents) dinner during the Empire Cup tournament. A bit slow to get the order in but otherwise a great meal with a fun atmosphere. Ribs were excellent.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as a good, local place to eat. Our family of 3 was the first of the soccer group to enter the restaurant on a Saturday night around 6:30pm. This seemed like it was the hostess' 1st night on the job since she appeared to be at a total loss as to whether they... More

Great decor, great service. Food was good, typical pub food. Value was ok. On a four day trip it was not the best meal we had but certainly not the worst so overall a pleasurable experience.

Came with a group of seven Saturday night. Having eaten here before, looked forward to it. Lets say, not very good. Most of us had meat platters with ribs, they were just bad. They were hard and dry, maybe left over from the day before? Lots of good bbq places to go, probably wont come back here.

Love going here when I am in the mood for a great southern tasting BBQ. My friends love going here and trying the different menu items. The prices are not too bad and the food is really good. I love their chips with dressing and of course the Chicken Quasadillas!

We had dinner for the first time at the Center Street Smoke House. We had the 3 meat platter with the ribs, Texas brisket and Carolina pulled pork. All were very delicious. There are also many choices for the 2 sides that go with the meal. The decor reminded me off our favorite barbecue place in Fort Worth TX. Our... More
