We tried the Smokehouse based on a recommendation by our Innkeeper at the Atwood House. We are so glad we tried it. The Smokehouse is a small town locally owned "pub" so seldomly found anymore. Our meal was a real treat. The service was perfect, and the ambiance just right. The restaurant is built in an old home, so it... More

Great find in Chillicothe, Ohio. The atmosphere takes you back to a time without chain restaurants. The servers are friendly and the food is excellent. We loved it and will return on our next trip that takes us through Chillicothe.

Any smokehouse that serves the sauce (House made) on the side has nothing to hide. The meat was excellent and the sides were well prepared and tasty. Food comes up quickly and the attentive staff serve only to please. This place was recommended by the locals and it is very easy to see why. My Baby back ribs were tender... More

Such a nice change from the restaurant chains so plentiful in Chillicothe. The smoked chicken is heavenly and the wins are the best in town.

We could smell the meat as we approached the restaurant. We loved the decor with pictures of the old canal. Our plates were filled with mounds of pulled pork and beef brisket excellently prepared. The sides of slaw and potato salad were good, but I think maybe the beans would have been great.

Our family wanted to meet in Chillicothe to celebrate a birthday. The Old Canal Smokehouse was rated well on Trip Advisor, so we thought we would give it a try. As soon as we walked up the sidewalk, towards the restaurant, the smell of BBQ filled the air! Wow! It smelled delicious! We made reservations for our large group, our... More
