My husband and I have eaten at the Smokehouse before and returned. I ordered the half rack of ribs (it is huge for a half rack) along with the muffin, onion rings and fresh vegies. My husband had the platter which consisted of Andoulie sausage, baked beans, a bacon and cheese muffin, potato salad along with a huge order of... More

After reading many reviews on this restaurant, we checked it out with another couple.Not sure why most reviews were positive. We did not leave the restaurant feeling like we would return. Everything from the moment you enter until you leave was just average. Don't get me wrong, the service was O.k. Food was average. Just not what we were expecting.

for a pulled chicken sandwich, the meat was not pulled, but rather chunked and I like a saucy pulled sandwich. The cheese bun may have been microwaved as parts of it were hard. The potato salad was probably good if you like balsamic vinegar. I don't so didn't eat it. The staff were fantastic. Friendly and helpful.

Hi 562sharono, Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear that our staff were fantastic, but we are sorry to hear that we are not for you. Typically pulled chicken is chunky to keep it as moist and flavorful as possible. Shredded chicken, which is more Mexican style, tends to be dry and has to be soaked in... More

We went to this BBQ Smokehouse for a birthday celebration. It was our first time here and it was delicious. Especially the meat!! Everyone at our table really enjoyed their meat. Also, you get a large portion of meat. Cornbread was good, but not what could be classified as "out of this world" good, but yes, it was good. Beans... More

Hi Sheri M, Thank you for your awesome review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. Regarding the spicy aspect for the beans, we try not to make them spicy as many local customers don't like things too spicy. We do have our BBQ sauces on the table and either the Afterburner or the Lavalicious can... More

Eric and Tanya and their staff at Station BBQ are the best! The food is fantastic! I am from the Southwest area of the US (Phoenix Arizona) and I've tasted BBQ from coast-to-coast, but I can certainly tell you that you'll never find this kind of "authentic" BBQ anywhere else in BC. Many have tried, but they have also failed... More

We were somewhat disappointed in the entire meal. The staff were there, they did their job, but they were not over friendly, they did not encourage any light/fun conversations. The Caesar drinks totally missed the mark. I make a better one at home!! For the food, it was good, but the food was not out of the ballpark "great" ...... More

This restaurant has yet to disappoint. Lunch was delish. Ordered the Brisket platter to share and we brought some home. Portions are large, flavour is huge. Staff and atmosphere are the best.
