Had beef brisket sandwich and greens. The brisket was without smoke flavor, and was not tender. Several slices had "fat" along the sides. Never would try it again. The greens were very good, with lots of flavor. Sauces were interesting and good. Liked the service.

We had my son and daughter-in-law's wedding rehearsal dinner here and were totally spellbound by the food and the service. I would recommend the place over anywhere else!!! Can't wait to come back from Kansas to eat here again!!!!!

Sit on the balcony at the back and enjoy the view while you are well served by the staff. Love their brisket and choices of barbeque sauces. Can't beat the greens nor the fried okra for a truly southern edge to the meal!! One of my 'go back to' restaurants in Greenville!!

I had the brisket and ribs plate. The brisket was very good; the ribs were just ok. There are several sauces to try; I liked the hottest sauce the best. I would go back to Smoke on the Water for the brisket. Parking can be challenging.

Smoke on the Water consistently delivers some of the best food in Greenville. I've tried just about half the menu at this point and nothing has disappointed. Our last visit was for a birthday dinner, and the food,service and atmosphere were great! We were even treated to a birthday dessert on the house. It can get a little loud in... More

One of the best restaurants in Greenville. Creative and delicious. Modern takes on southern favorites. I had grouper on crawfish étouffée and my wife had the braised pork. We loved them both. Fantastic wine menu.

This place came highly recommended and we were disappointed. BBQ is great and loved the potato cake and mac & cheese!! We sat on the back deck and it was warm and sunny!

Great food with tables out front, can even bring the dog. We love sitting outside with view of Main street and able to bring dog. We love taking walk in park and then going to Smoke for lunch.
