Midwood Smokehouse

Great menu offering "burnt ends" which were delicious!!! There were 8 of us ages 4 - 62 and there was something for everyone. Big screen TVs, good food and brew, yet family friendly. Worth a try!

This place is all smoke...ribs, chicken, brisket...affordable. Try the burnt ends. Love the place in Ballantyne. Management seems on top of things. Clean place. We will be back.

I have been going here for the last few months when in town and love it. I recently tried the tacos and I can't get enough of them. Great for a beer and a great dinner or lunch.

Had visited twice before when in the mood for barbeque. Not great but good each time. This visit had rave reviews by all. chicken wings delish, Cuban sandwich, pulled pork barbeque also great. Mac and cheese very good. Only negative is that restaurant is VERY noisy, hard to have conversation. Always crowded.

After hearing my parents rave about this place I decided to check it out for myself. First off, wait staff is EXCELLENT. I seriously cannot stand when they come to check on you every two seconds. Our waitress knew how to handle it in a busy restaurant. Wish I could remember her name! I had the pulled pork sandwich. I'm... More

Fun and casual. There was a wait but service was fast once seated. Portions were above average. We ordered two platters and was enough food for three adults. Brisket was the best of all the food. Cool local draft beer selection as well. Love the hush puppies.

I ate lunch at this restaurant with relatives and was looking forward to a great barbeque meal. Our relatives spoke highly of this restaurant. The barbeque was not bad. The hush puppies were run of the mill. The tea was terrible. The waitress needs more training. For a southern restaurant offering such a staple as barbeque, good sweet tea is... More

After trying to avoid going to this restaurant, I caved! My husband wanted to check it out and I'm glad we did. The service was great and the food was so good. The Mac & cheese, collards, salmon & pulled chicken was some of the best I've had. Southern food always has a twist and this was the perfect example.... More
