Great breakfast

I went with a group over 4 days and enjoyed the buffet style breakfast. The menu does change and there is an excellent selection. Unlike other places, corn beef hash is a daily staple (which I enjoy).

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

We visited after a day on the New River. We went to the buffet for dinner. At $29 per adult it was pretty expensive. There was a salad bar, hot entree buffet line and a desert table. The hot food was very tasty and fresh but it really was over priced, I think. I have to say the beers were... More

They serve a full buffet every night, or you could also order a pizza. The food was just ok, nothing to write home about but filled our hangry bellies after a full day of adventure. They also have yummy ice cream and milk shakes.

Too expensive. We were tired from a long drive so when we walked in and they said it was a buffet we stupidly did not ask how much it was. Would never have paid that much if we had known ahead of time.

This was more of a "nice casual" restaurant. Served buffet style but food was really good. The inside was pretty and rustic. Has an outdoor dining area with beautiful views of the gorge.

We went two nights at Smokey's. One night was only OK, the other night was great! The salad bar was the same both nights which is to say pretty good. Enjoyed all the desert option as well. We stayed at Adventures on the Gorge so trying Smokey's was well worth it.

Excellent Buffet! Was able to go Sunday after a long day of rafting. Loved the food. Food choices included Pesto Chicken, beef, braised pork and salmon, those were just the buffet entrees! This is a highly recommended restaurant when visiting Adventures on the Gorge.

The food was incredible. This was a great place to begin our New River Gorge vacation. Drove 10 hours that day and enjoyed a wonderful meal with a nice view and a live bluegrass band on the grounds to boot. It was a great first intro to our first WV visit. We sat outside but the inside atmosphere is nice.... More
