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.

Loved this place! Very casual, but fun atmosphere and excellent food. My husband and I had the jerk chicken and shrimp. Best jerk seasoning we've ever tasted and we've been to Jamaica! Highly recommend.

Have had good food in the past but my last visit was a huge disappointment. Took family from another country to eat there after bragging it up. The food was so salty it was inedible. My foreign family tried to be nice and polite but had trouble eating their meals because of the saltiness. The only good edible food was... More

This was our first visit here and we will absolutely be back! Decided to try something new for lunch. Had seen this on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives so why not check it out. We were not disappointed at all. They sat us up in the lounge which was great. The ceiling was made up of steel rods with skeletons on... More
