Love the place! Real nice staff and awesome smoked food. My favorites are the smoked veggie mix, one of the best mac 'n cheeses I ever had, the catfish is legendary, and I have really enjoyed the ribs as well, which isn't one of my top dishes.

This is in our top 5 places to go eat. We love everything about Mountainside Smokehouse and Grill. It is an excellent place to visit. It takes us 1 1/2 hours one way to go but it is so worth it. It is our special treat to ourselves. Great wings and appetizers and smoked everything. Love the dark nitro beer-... More

My wife ordered a salad, the lettus was toasted on the grill with a mild smoky flavor, nice touch. I ordered wings that came out of the smoker. While they were VERY large they where clearly over cooked and dry and tough. The sauce tasted "store bought" no kick and way to much ketchup product. .They do have a nice... More

Tried to order a burger but there isn't a plain one on the menu. Manager/owner was confrontational when I requested a duiscount from the one burger they offer that had a lot of toppings I didn't want. Food is not nearly good enough to put up with the people that work there.

We did takeout which may be why I feel somewhat disappointed. I didn't think to ask for bbq sauce on the side then I realized they make their own, so I am more disappointed. The ribs although tasty were not falling off the bone. Shepard's pie with pulled pork was good. The restaurant is cute and the staff was friendly.... More

Our first dinner in Old Forge, I eat local whenever I can. We found this place by accident. Beer selection, as in "Real Beer" was great, outside seating 5 circles, great server, Miss R was the best, food was a great value. I wanted to eat light and had a pull pork salad. It was at par or better than... More

I've passed this place a bunch of times but we finally stopped in and ate lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. The waitress was wonderful - super attentive and great with our kids. They do have a kids menu and gave them crayons. We loved the BBQ - and we are picky given that we live in Syracuse and eat... More
