My sister and I enjoyed dinner at Smoke On The Water one Friday night. We made reservations because sometimes you may be waiting a long time to be seated. You can eat inside or outside which works for many. The food and drinks were very good it was not the most expensive meal I have had but it is... read more

Have always loved this restaurant! My wife and I decided to go this morning, July 5, for lunch. We got there about 10 minutes before opening. There were several other future patrons waiting for the doors to open as well. The first thing my wife and I noticed is that most of the wait and kitchen staff were standing out... More

Let me start by saying that the staff was fantastic. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our server, Casey, did a great job. Here's why the restaurant didn't get 4 or 5 stars: I love beef brisket and I enjoy trying it at different places. This brisket was just ok - not moist and flavorful. It wasn't tough; it just wasn't... More

We lucked out....it started raining and we ducked into this cute place. Nice atmosphere, nice music, excellent wait staff. I enjoyed the fried catfish lunch with coleslaw and fried onion rings...not diet friendly, but real yummy. My husband enjoyed the pulled pork luncheon....he enjoyed it with the coleslaw and potato salad. Food was goo, service fast, restrooms very clean and... More

This restaurant has a good variety of southern foods, many of which we have tried and we always return when we are in town or when we have guests who enjoy southern food.

Went To Smoke On The Water on a Sunday afternoon. The service was great. The food was delicious. I had the baby back ribs and they were so tender that you could pull the bone right out of the meat with no effort. They bring 4 different types of bar-b-que sauces to your table, vinegar based, mustard based, tomato based,... More

Want some good smoked meat? Go here! The brisket is amazing! Pork is good. I didn't think the chicken was anything special, but it was good. Fried okra is great. Want a fan of the squash casserole. The fried green tomatoes are excellent! As are the fried oysters. Can't really go wrong here, as the portions are just the right... More

We recently enjoyed an after-work dinner at Smoke on the Water with some colleagues and it was an absolute delight. Our server was polite, energetic, and funny. She provided excellent service and a wonderful upbeat attitude all evening. We were long because we were engaged in conversation and did not just - eat and run. The food was excellent and... More

Good homestyle southern cooking, wonderful atmosphere, attentive staff. We tried the fried okra, the "greens" (collard greens), and the smoked barbeque. My daughter is both gluten and dairy free, and it there were good choices for her as well.
