Recently on my way home called in order at lunch time. I was 5 min out and it was ready when I arrived. Large pulled pork sandwiches with excellent sides; great iced tea. They have indoor and outdoor waterfront seating, beautiful sunsets! A definite try

This place has so much potential in that it is located right on the water, is spacious with inside and outside dining, has a great bar, has fun decorations with stuffed animals and western themes, and so much more. Too bad the food was rather tasteless. Also, for a place that bills itself as a barbeque place, the menu actually... More

Good Bar B Que but great wings. The atmosphere is really nice, great service, and moderately priced. I will go back. Had a large group of people with me so I got to sample the ribs, brisket, and pork. All good and the bar b que sauce is on the sweet side

We went to the Smokehouse on the 4th of July mid-evening. Our service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Each of us enjoyed our meals...an unusual occurrence with our picky eater. We went outside to the sand area to view the fireworks. Wonderful evening.

This restaurant had all the showings of a good BBQ joint when arriving. The building had a really good luck inside and out. The smell of the BBQ was wonderful as well. However, the food is overpriced and lacking in quantity or quality. The fries appear to be Ore Ida brand at best and are not seasoned, just right out... More

Eaten here several times and it has always been ok, but not great. The building is very cool, but the overall quality and price of the food is lacking.

We ate there at lunch time and sit outside. Remember it is hot there, but we enjoyed it. It was good food and lots of it. Drinks were served in jars. It was a neat place to eat and we sure didn't leave there hungry.

The brisket is awesome. Nice atmosphere and good service. They have a band every night around 8pm. We liked it so much we went twice in our 3 day stay. They have some really good looking servers there too!! So that was a plus!! Lol

Recent vacation in Navarre, went to this restaurant twice. Had visited in previous years and had fair experience, not this time. First visit, our waitress had a good sweat going while she waited tables. Instead of going to ladies room and wiping off and washing face, she wiped sweat with one hand and served the food with the same hand.... More
