I will not return to a restaurant that charges customers 2.00 to share a meal. To many good restaurants to choose from that do not have this policy.

The inside is like an old house with separate dinning rooms complete with fireplaces. We had a great meal of pulled pork sandwiches. The mashed potatoes are delicious - get them "loaded". The resturant is far enough south to have excellent hospitality and sweet tea. After you eat, go a few blocks east of the resturant and take a stroll... More

Typically when driving through areas during the day I don't like to travel too far off the interstate. I made an exception this time and am so glad that I did. From the moment you enter the porch area and then step inside the home you are greeted with a smoky smell that pulls you in. From the quality service... More

We had a job finding the Smoke House, but the Visitor Center kindly helped us and we walked from their car park. We spied the awning which told us that there was a restaurant there. There's an attractive covered patio on the street corner, but we went inside and encountered a delicious smoky smell. We were shown to a small... More

Was in town for business and we had scouted out his place beforehand. We were not disappointed. Excellent food. Had the prime rib sandwich and mac.cheese. Both are winners. Restaurant is in a cool historical brick building. Skip the chains and head here, you won't be disappointed. Would definitely go back if ever back in town.

Fantastic food and service. Love the brisket/pulled pork and mashed potatoes. Wish I could eat here all the time, but a little pricey for a family of five. Would be nice to have a kids night.

This was a suggested restaurant both by our hotel and by some local friends; it was wonderful! It is located on Water Street which was many, many years ago part of the old "Erie" canal system in Ohio. The food was wonderful, mostly "smoked items," with a nice variety of other offerings including "combo platters." The place was busy on... More
