Headed home from Atlanta on a Friday night thought about trying somewhere different. My family likes local not chain restaurants so we decided to try Smoke on the Water. It's got a great location, not difficult to get off from 85N to find . Busy downtown traffic had us pay for parking, but we... read more

My husband and I met his brother and wife here for lunch. They had a dog and this is a pet friendly place (outside seating). All I can say is this: Any place that brings a bowl of water for the patron's dog is MY kind of place! On top of that, the food is superb and the prices aren't... More

One of my favorite places in downtown Greenville.... when my daughter comes to visit...this is where she wants to eat. Being southern born and raised I enjoy BBQ and this is the place to find the best. Everything they serve from the pulled pork to the slaw is delicious and will make you return again!

Hadn't been for a few months, and when asked where I wanted to go for my birthday lunch I exclaimed, "Smoke On the Water". Had my usual beef brisket with the exquisite Kansas City Sweet BBQ sauce. The always warm, delicious, cornbread came out first... I must say, though, that they could send out a little more butter when there... More

Basically this place needs a little more customer service output and it will be a great place to go to eat...be very patient with the service. It's very slow but great food

I have now been to smoke three times since moving here and I recently went for lunch with coworkers and it was excellent. Short wait, great service, great daily specials. I tried to take some family that was in town a few nights later and we got there at 5:15 and it was a 2.5 hours wait for 4 people-... More

I can't explain it but the place just isn't what it used to be. The menu items are pretty much the same but they just don't have the flavor and excitement they used to.They're not as flexible either. I used to substitute a chicken breast for 1/4 chicken on the ribs/chicken plate but they won't do that any more...so options,... More

I recently picked up food to go and ordered the collards with beer butt chicken. Dipped the cornbread in the collards juice and WOW!!!! Delicious!

We were staying in Greenville and wanted to visit Falls Park on the Reedy. We decided to find a restaurant that was within walking distance so of course we used Trip Advisor for our research. Smoke on the Water is right next to the park and was highly rated by other Trip Advisor visitors. We weren't disappointed at all as... More
