This year when I came back there was a special menu increased selection of craft beer the boots had been reupholstered and our server was very friendly and efficient. The... read more

I have never had WORSE SERVICE in my life. I had a reservation and it took ten minutes from walking in the door to get the table because they didn't have it ready. After twenty minutes at the table we only had two drinks for seven people. Multiple tables got sat after us and left before us. It took and... More

I have visited this restaurant about 6 times in the past. The food has always been good however, I feel the owners should consider changing the menu or offer specials. The same meat selections become boring and the side selections are not always from the freshest ingredients (not sure if the grilled vegetables were canned or frozen). The waitress assured... More

I usually go here and never have a complaint! But the last time we went -- um forget it! The server was not very friendly at all -- her personality was like that of a wet noodle. We ordered and our food was not hot, it was luke warm. My daughters had chicken fingers and they were discolored and rubbery... More

The food was amazing and the portions were huge! The restaurant itself was clean and the decor was awesome! We live 45 minutes away and would drive back just for their food. Go. ... you will not be disappointed!

My wife and I ate at the Center Street Smokehouse. I had a 1/2 rack of ribs and my wife had a Sirloin Steak Special. The food was OK. Nothing special. The ribs could have been from any other Rib Place. My wife's steak was large, tasteful but again nothing to make it stand out. Service was excellent. The menu... More

My family and I have dined here every time we visit Palm Island Waterpark. The food here is delicious! I love the pulled pork and the rotisserie chicken. The sides are tasty also. I definitely recommend the Center Street Smokehouse.

This was a nice meal, we got a deal on Groupon and the staff wasgreat, we had a nice waitress who was on top of everything and didn't give us "the look" when she saw the groupon. We had a good meal and even better drinks! The environment was friendly for family, couples, and singles. They had a nice little... More

I moved from Western New York to Atlanta, GA 2 years ago. I had always heard about southern bbq and how good it was but nothing here compares to this place. We ate there 4-5 times per year and visit every time we go up north. Best BBQ I've had!!!
