We can't really comment on the food, as we only tried some of the pates and chutneys which were all very nice. There were people dining there, lovely log fire, beautifully stocked out shop with a terrific view.

So much to enjoy, the real flavours of Tassie with an island experience and so local - well done to Bruny Island produce.

Yummy platters and ciders. You don't get too much for a $65 platter. So if your hungry expect to pay $$$$ for extras. Chowder is delicious !!!!

Sit back, enjoy the view and the cherry cider - not sour not too sweet - perfect! Of course the smoked meat and accompaniments are not too bad either! I'm not a whisky drinker but there are plenty to try here.

In my opinion this is not a smokehouse. Its just a wine bar with a very small quantity of prior-packed fish that you can buy. No food at all available to taste or purchase. The only tastings were wine and chutneys. We planned our day in order to stop here for lunch but went away hungry.

Thanks for your review, great for clarification. We are no longer 'smoking on site, we outgrew the premises two years ago & split our business into two separate businesses. The Bruny Island Smokehouse & Whisky Bar, and BISH Wholesale. Here at the Smokehouse & Whisky Bar we have over 150 products all local, all available to purchase & many served... More

Way too expensive! Great views and cosy building, but $18 for a pint of beer is crazy!! Food platters also pricey at $65/$75. I'm sure if the prices were more reasonable many more visitors would indulge. Disappointed!

Thanks for your review, its always a good opportunity for clarification to other travellers. We serve local Tasmanian boutique ales here at the Smokehouse, prices starting at $4.50 up to the top of the range at $18 which would be what you ordered. As specified on our menu, our gourmet platters are 'for two' hence the pricing. Our venue is... More

This is the first stop on the 'food trail' when you get on to Bruny Island and it sets the bar high. The produce is all local and all very good. We picked up some pate and some smoked salmon which were both really good - it's just a shame that we couldn't take more. The person working at the... More

Visited during a tour of Bruny Island. A very busy place with a small opportunity to enjoy all their produce,they had a tasting station but was a little wary of the hygiene, they tried to check all produce but I think they were over run by the amount of people. Bought some pate was a little dis appointed. May have... More

We stopped at this place before heading to the ferry. The location and the wooden building is nice. There is a big variety of spitits made locally: vodka, whiskey and gin. But we expected to see more smoked fish available to try and purchase. You can order hot food and have wine. There is indoor and outdoor area where you... More
