“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We stopped by TheSmoke on our way up to Blue Mountain this past weekend. Definitely worth the stop. A bit on the pricey side for lunch, but well worth it given the portion size. I had the chicken and ribs- the chicken was a bit dry and not overly smoky, but the ribs were really delicious. My boyfriend had one of the platters that had brisket, pulled pork and ribs. The brisket was sooo delicious, by far the best of all the meats I sampled. We also loved the different BBQ sauces at the table- they were all delicious.

“If you like smoke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The smoke is great new find for my friends and family . Hearing about this restaurant we planned
a day trip to Collingwood to have lunch. As soon as we reached the parking lot that sweet smell of smoke made us hungry. Very nice spot to walk into and we new it was going to be great . The server greeted us and we started with a local beer . the menu has a great choice of smoked food making it hard to choose what you want. There was six of us so we decided to order something different for each of us. We all made a great choice. I had the pig on a patty and a side of mac and cheese and I sure was not disappointed. My wife had the poutine with brisket on top {wow]
We all left full and very happy. We all will return soon.
p.s. we even had a tour of the smokers

“Good meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Fairly new place in collingwood. Their smoked ribs were very good as was their bb sauce. A little expensive for the portions but worth it.

“The Smoke rules”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

We stopped by The Smoke for dinner due to the high ratings on Trip Advisor. Were the high ratings justified? You bet! All five in our party raved about their dinner. From the fresh, perfectly prepared salmon with the unique and superb dill sauce, to the juicy and tender brisket and the flavorful smoky burger, the food was consistently excellent. Top that off with an extremely friendly and accommodating staff and you have the makings of a great meal. No wonder it was featured on the Food Network show "You Gotta Eat Here". Don't miss it.

“Wow - now that is great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Son & I spent day at Wasaga Beach and them wanted to go somewhere good for lunch. Google "Collingwood restaurants lunch" and this place came up. Sooooo glad we went. My son had the WBBLTC sandwich (wild boar bacon LT sandwich with smoked cheddar) He loved it. I had the club - fabulous. Love the 5 different homemade sauces in the table. Tried all of them with our fries. Can't wait to go back and bring hubby - he will die and go to heaven there!
