The jerk wings are out of this world. Just enough kick to make your nose sweat but make you want more. The "from-scratch" margaritas are some of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. The bartender, I believe her name is Mandy, needs a badge, perhaps a purple ribbon, for her margarita making skills. Well done! I also... More

We visited Smalley's on October 5th and had an incredible dinner! The jerk wings and chicken sandwich were as good as any I had when visiting Jamaica. The pulled pork sandwich had a great smoked flavor and was a generous portion. The macaroni and cheese with some crispy bacon was delightful! We last ate at Smalley's over five years ago... More

Great heat where you want it, wonderful full bodied flavor when you don't. From the Bacon Appetizers to the Tacos (your choice of fillings) its just really, really good. Brisket that melts in your mouth, craft beer selections that are actually meaningful and not trite. Stillwaters best.

My friend and I stopped in Stillwater on Labor Day. Smalley's was recommended so we tried it out. The pulled pork sandwich and craft beer were great. It was a bit overpriced for the portion but great nonetheless.

We had heard this was a very nice restaurant. We were going on a boat trip and it is just on the other side of the parking lot. The couple we were with and my husband enjoyed their food very much. It wasn't exactly what I liked as it is mostly spicy food that I can't eat. It would be... More

Great food and sides. Service can sometimes be lacking. The sweet potato fries are amazing. Good beer and cocktail menu.

We stopped in for supper. Great menu selection. We had the ribs and the pork tacos. The ribs were excellent, the tacos were very salty and that could just be due to the "carribean jerk" seasoning that I wasn't used to. Overall very good and fun place to eat. Loved the decorations.

Love Smalleys Happy Hour Menu.....those pork tacos are to die for! They have a nice size food menu and specialty drink menu during HH. Decent prices for quantity of food. Not much table space but large bar. Clean, fun atmosphere and bartenders are always friendly. (Bartenders typically have to tend the bar & tables.....help them out, get off your duff... More

This place may be my favorite BBQ hands down, my boyfriend seconds that. Every time we go to Stillwater we stop in for their famous jerk tacos.
