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

This is a fun place to go with the kids for a pirate adventure. Food is BBQ so plan for a bit of spice in your food, but delicious if you love spice!

Absolutely the best jerk chicken we've ever had! Service was great also. We bought some sauce to take home also. Highly recommend!

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.

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.
