I graduated from UW in '79 and Smoky's was always said to be #1. I finally had the chance to go there with another friend who travels and dines out extensively. We have both been in the restaurant business for many years. While I had a courteous person answer the phone and take our reservations and a very warm welcome,... More

First time here, and will come back. The steak was very good. Service also good.. kind of feels like you are in a basement, but has character.

Smokeys I have heard wonderful things for years. We thought we would try it to find out what the hipe was about. The building is old without character. Menu is limited and pricy compaared to other restaurants 8oz. filet $35. Quality of the food was good. Salad was boring and desserts were limited.

Smoky's has been in Madison forever and this was my very first visit! This is definitely a supper club and had great ambiance - there were little white lights around the edges of the rooms, which were smaller and more intimate. We both ordered filets (medium rare and a medium), which were cooked perfectly and were delivered on sizzling plates,... More

If you long for the days of the supper club, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is homey and the food is great. The steaks come out on sizzling platters. The hash browns are a must!

If your looking for a good steak Smoky's is one of the few places that I would recommend in Madison. It's a local place and has been around for a long time. The mood set by smokys isn't for some, like me, but once you start eating, you'll forget all about the outdate decor!
