“Great atmosphere, only okay food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Smokey Joe's restaurant has been well-known in kaohsiung for many years. It has a unique decoration, dim and cozy atmosphere- kind of like what anyone would expect in a western pub. I ordered their smoked salmon alfredo fettucini the last time i went and i must say that i have had way better spagetti elsewhere in kaohsiung. The noodles were too hard and the salmon was too dry. The sauce was nice and creamy but the sauce was not cooked into the noodles. Also, we shared their bbq ribs which was good. If you're looking for somewhere to party for the night with your friends, then this is the place. The atmosphere is amazing, but the pasta dishes should be improved.
