Pricey but Good

The food was buffet style. There were plenty of dishes to choose from and all were tasty. The setting was beautiful and the staff was attentive. The only downside was the price ($30.00/person).

This is a $30 gourmet buffet. The food was decent and I enjoyed the variety, but be warned if you are eating with children, picky eaters, or "meat and potatoes" people, they may not find anything they like since the "gourmet" part means meats and fish in sauces that people may not be familiar with. The wait staff was friendly... More

I got married at Smokey’s 10 years ago, and the food, service and setting were all amazing. My husband & I returned to celebrate our anniversary, and we were more than a little disappointed. To start, I asked for a wine list, and the very nice waitress gave me a blank stare and said she didn’t know if she had... More

Ate there years ago and it was wonderful but pricey. We just went rafting last week and thought about eating there again. It sits in the woods next in their outdoor adventure complex. The posted menu was gourmet. The dining room was not very full at 6 pm on a Saturday evening. The cost is $30 per person. We just... More

They serve a real good buffet, chicken, steak topped with shrimp, crusted salmon, assortment of veggies, salads and desserts. The waitress was wonderful, and we sat on the outside deck. The restaurant is right on the gorge, but views are obstructed by trees. Food was delicious, though a bit spendy at $30 per person. Easy access and plenty of parking... More

Buffett. The food was ok in a spectacular setting. Nice enough. The staff was really busy and seemed overwhelmed. Folks tired to please.

We ate at this restaurant while staying at AOTG. We enjoyed the food very much. We ate the buffet and were not disappointed! The atmosphere was wonderful and the fresh flowers were also beautiful as well as the view of the gorge from right outside!

Smokey's is essentially a $30 buffet. When we visited AOTG they weren't terribly busy so the buffet seemed like the food had been out a bit too long. Overall it was good but not worth the price.

It was great to have a place to eat dinner right after rafting. The all you can eat buffet is gourmet food in an open air dining room overlooking the new rive gorge. The food was pretty good. Some things better than others. The salad bar was really nice and the dessert bar had a lot of yummy options. The... More
