We visited on New Year's Eve, and although the restaurant was busy, our service was still good for our group of 8. Our food was decent, and they had a nice selection of beers to choose from. The consensus at the table was that the sweet potatoes and sausage side dish was the best choice. We did try their free... More

FIrst time there and found the menu intriguing and good mix of caribbean fare -especially Jamaican jerk. Spice levels vary from tepid to almost intolerable, and everything was freshly prepared, hot, with great beer selection to boot. Definitely returning.

Good service but was very disappointed with the food. If you think tomato ketchup is a spice than go for it. Spicy jerk wings was mild (spicy level, should have gone one step up I guess). Do not order the mahi mahi taco. Liked the tater tots.

Smalley's on Friday night (around 8PM) It was pretty busy. Waitress said it would be a half an hour wait/ no one visibile in line, could have got on wait list and left. I think they call you when you're up so you have to be fairly close. We opted to go to the bar section and seat ourselves. I... More

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.
