During COVID we were on a take out binge and Smoke is so close to our place I knew we would take advantage of this place. So we had some friends come over and we ordered for pickup and the place didn’t disappoint. We ordered...two samplers and all the meat was tender and delicious, and the corn bread so absolutely amazing, sweet and savoury at the same time. The only knock I would give them is that the meat dishes weren’t warmed up before put in the containers. So when we all sat down and started filling our plates we had to then put them in the microwave so that wasn’t great. All said and done thought highly recommend this place for southwestern style barbecue.More

Had the pulled pork sandwich and was really good. Small place attentive service. Would give higher marks if it were not for the poor ventilation. Love the smoke but not on my cloths. Not a bad thing because when I got home my better half...told me to take off my cloths.More

Friends of ours have been here before and raved about the food so 6 of us decided ( then included ) decided to go and try their BBQ’d ribs This is a very casual cozy spot so don’t dress up - just get ready to...eat with your hands Ribs and riblets were great We had many sides as well ( fries, onion rings , beet salad, cole slaw etc ) that we’re very good If you want real BBQ and your in the area - give it a shot Call for a reservation because the place is small Try not to be seated upstairs - it’s tight and loud up thereMore

Atmosphere was very nice. Not the usual loud restaurant with TV's all around. They use a heavy smoke crust on their ribs and pork. The Riblets appetizer was little chewy. Similar to jerky but very tasty. The Brisket was one of the best I've had;...very tender and not fatty. Sauce very good. Sweet Potato Lattice fries were nice and crispy. Really enjoyed our dinner. Price was on the higher end for BBQ but this place is a little more upscale than most BBQ joints.More

Hardly any meat on the 1/2 rack of ribs & Mac & Cheese was pitifully small for the cost,left hungry & server did not care about the comments. For BBQ I've never seen it take so long for the food to come out.

We decided to take a chance to try out Smoque & bones after reading some of the reviews. The exterior is "rustic" , but don't be put off. It was really busy inside. We hadn't made a reservation but we were promptly allocated a table....The people next to us had been in a while & when their order appeared I knew we'd made the right choice. We ordered the rib tips, pulled pork & brisket with a portion of the sweet potato waffle fries. EVERYTHING was delicious. The variety of sauces, textures and tastes were lovely. It was very good service, considering how busy it was. Good value and polite helpful waitresses made this a great night out. It was so good we had to go back and try the chicken with sauces and sides. This was some of the best smokehouse food I've tasted, and is without doubt a contender for the "You must eat here programme". Don't miss out this gem of a smokehouse. We loved it.❤️More

Yuk I ordered the Cobb salad. Please do not expect much chicken for one, 4 bites. That’s it. I watched him throw it in & im thinking please do not be my dinner. Yep. When I say 4 bites I’m really saying 4 little bites....Very disappointed. It’s a bbq place the bbq chicken should have been the focus. But not. The dressing was the focus, gross gross so much I couldn’t eat it. Swimming dressing. The salad I think would have been very good but WAY too much dressing. It’s usually my practice to order dinner knowing 1/2 will be my dinner the next day. Nope do not want. Gross. Unless I want to eat salad dressing. Corn was great but really one Cobb for $9? I did enjoyMore

Since we live right up the street and love smokehouse food, we have visited this place time and time again. Food has been a hit or miss, would recommend the sweet potato waffle fires, buttermilk onion rings, the peppercorn beef sandwich & Mac n Cheese,...however found the shareable dishes very poor and would not suit one person for a main. Main reason for the low score is the seating arrangements. I had family over from home and had reserved a low seating table for 3 people. When we arrived we were seated at a high table (no problem, at least we had our own table), received our drinks, ordered, and then were asked to move to the bar since they had overbooked the area. We asked could we be moved upstairs, and were told no, they were completely booked out. We had to move to the bar and sit side by side (note this is the second time this has happened to us with a reservation). We found this extremely awkward and to be completely honest just wanted to leave. I also wanted to add that although three others sat at our original table, there were two free tables for the entire time we were eating our food. I was so so disappointed with how this was handled and don't see the point in reserving tables/special requests if your just going to get seated at the bar each time (as I said 2/3 time i've been here its happened). Ok for 2 people, but for three or more, find somewhere else thats not as difficult to move around in and where you can actually have a conversation without having to stare straight into the cooking area.More

Amazing food. The Wood oven cooking brings that extra smoky flavour and he senses of smell and taste let you fully enjoy the bbq meats. The beef ribs were outstanding and really enjoyed the brisket and chicken wings.

You get what you see. The food is excellent, particularly those appetizers. So many great finger foods. I have only been there once, and dream often of my return. Just have to make it back down there. Introduced to me by my kids. They know...all of the hot spots, and this will is "smoking"! Whether you live in TO, or you are just visiting, put this on your list of places to eat at. You will thank me for the tip, and realize what I mean by they do with no smoke and mirrors.More
