Yummy food!

Two very hungry teenage boys and I waited 1.5 hours for a table at Smoke on the Water, while we explored the River in downtown Greenville. The menu was excellent, and we were impressed with most things. Service was charming-Southern, and gracious. We started w/ loaded skins, and they were good... read more

We made the trek down to Smoke on the Water from the Westin. We had heard great things and the menu looked delicious! We wanted to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather, however upon arrival we were told "No one has gotten their food outside, it's going to be awhile." We decided to wait. While waiting, we saw frazzled... More

When visiting downtown Greenville, SC in the Historic West End, this place is considered a wonderful stop to eat, drink and relax while enjoying this fine city and surrounding sights. The Beef Brisket is as tasty as it is tender. The staff is friendly and the prices are comparable to other fine restaurants in the downtown area. Don't be in... More

Open for lunch and dinner. Dinner was great there! Attentive servers. Great place to dinner. Also, took a business friend to lunch at Smoke, he enjoyed it very much! Outdoor seating is great!

My big disappointment came with the "creamed" Spinach, completely dries out not a drop of cream in sight. They put it under the broiler and destroyed it. Everything else was just ok nothing to write home about. Not everyone knows how to cook, so they think this is good.......but....

This is a fabulous place! Delicious brisket, pulled pork, ribs...right off the smoker. Our waitress was a gem and the service was wonderful. Pleasantly surprised by the moderately priced menu items.

To bad they were not serving the Sunday special...turkey and dressing. However not any one of the six could find anything wrong with any of the entrees. The smoked prime rib was wonderful. The rib meat fell off the bones. The fried catfish was great. Will go back next year for sure

We were entertaining friends in downtown Greenville and needed food. We went to Smoke on the Water and enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was great, the staff friendly, and the prices were reasonable. We didn't leave hungry. Need a good spot for lunch on Saturday afternoon? Go to Smoke on the Water!
