Family fare, very casual , good when the food finally arrived! After waiting for our order they brought half of it and said they ran out of half of what our party had ordered ! Glad we were on vacation and had plenty of time .....

We made two trips during our stay to the Smokestack. We did not dine either visit, but stopped in for a drink and then returned the next night to watch Stanley Cup Hockey on big screens over the bar. Good time and nightly drink specials. Check it out!

Stopped in on a dreary Saturday. Greeted warmly and sat comfortably in a booth watching the river flow outside and soprts on the tv's. Great place to catch sports and have beer and pub food. Nice portions and the beer is cold and wicked cheap. Stella on draft for 4 bucks-can't beat that! Will be returning soon!

We've been here numerous times, especially on a Sunday night when many restaurants are closed in the off season. Menu has a nice variety of pub food options and husband seems happy with the selection of beers on tap. Portions are good, prices reasonable, food is tasty. They also offer pizza, although I have never it here.

We went here with a friend from the area, we likely wouldn't have known about it otherwise, but were very glad we did. The atmosphere is fun and easy going. Everyone from the bartender, to the waitress and the other patrons were friendly and joking around. The food was good and the drinks were great.

Had a decent burger at the smokestack bar and grill while staying in Camden. Unfortunately they seemed to be quite understaffed, as I saw only one waitress in the dining area. She did her best, actually a really good job considering the workload, but she really needed some help in order to provide timely service.

This is a wonderful space in a 170-year-old mill building which has been the location of a couple of sports-bar-restaurants since its conversion in the early 1990s. (NOTE: At the time of its opening I was working at a desk job upstairs and always found it hard to concentrate after "Miller Time" began boisterously in the pub when it was... More

Set on the falls of the Megunticook River in the old Knox Mill, Smokestack Grill is Camden’s best sports bar and grill. We offer a large menu, including pub fare, burgers, steaks, seafood, and delicious hand tossed pizzas. Our menu is complimented by the large bar and friendly staff. Stop by to dine with family, watch the game on one of our nine flat screen televisions, or enjoy live music with friends.
