My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner at Smalley's. Lots of people on here say that the service was slow or that the place was packed but since we went earlier there were only a few other families there and our waitress was very attentive to our needs. Since it was so hot the week we were there my... More

Great drinks and appetizers.🍻😆🤗 The Bartender was very helpful and knowledgeable of food and drinks, since we were indecisive on what to order. We were very happy with the service. I would go there again.

We were on a overnight in Stillwater and thought we would try this place for dinner. To start with the service was super slow and not attentive. We ordered the pick two ribs and chicken to share. The shrimp was average but the ribs were burnt had no flavor and very little meat. We brought this to the attention of... More

My family of 5 ate here and it was excellent! The staff was superb. The mild hot wings were awesome and the pulled pork and sweet potato fries were good too. A must in Stillwater.

We ate here over 4th of July weekend. I had heard from some co-workers that the food was amazing, but we found it to be just ok. My husband said the ribs tasted like they had been steamed, and his shrimp were way overdone. Guacamole was the best thing we tried. Jerk chicken was very flavorful, but not quite what... More

Unbelievably great jerk wings! Cooked to perfection (dislike soggy-skin wings, or greasy). Everyone in our group cleared her plate...very uncommon. Service was excellent, as well.

Visited friends in Stillwater and ate lunch at Smalley's with 4 kids and still loved it! Had the shrimp and cornbread appetizer and the cornbread was the best we've ever had! Jerk tacos with sweet potato fries were great and enough to share. Great kids menu too! All our little pirates we full and happy!

Sunday 7/3 of a holiday weekend. My family is here from out of town, my college age grandkids wanted to go to Smalley's because of all of the national Food Network attention. We called an hour ahead to see if we could get in and that there was 10 of us. Told us come on in, no problem. After driving... More

We ordered the pick two BBQ and my jerk chicken had no seasoning/salt. The potato salad had no bacon and eggs were practically rubber . I eaten here twice before, and never had a issue but the service and food sucked and they deleted my check in with my thoughts on my $66.00 dinner which sucked on my 10year anniversary..

Thank Angel S
