We were visiting Potsdam and after a very disappointing meal at Sergi's the night before, we wanted something good. We read good reviews of The Olde Smokehouse. It was not a very long drive from Potsdam, maybe 12 miles. We arrived at 8:00 p.m., so there were only a few diners there. Both of us ordered the pulled-port sandwich with... More

I travel for work every week and eat out often. I decided to make the 10 minute trip to try out this smokehouse because I had been craving barbecue. I was surprised by how nice this place was done up. Great atmosphere, great decor and artwork on the walls, and most of all great food. They have some of the... More

I have never tasted better pulled pork, it melted in my mouth, the taste was amazing and I will go back again and again. The beer was ice cold. There was not a person at our table of 8 that was not filled to the top and very satisfied with everything we ordered. If you get a chance, give this... More

This was my first time eating lunch here. I have been here for dinner and found it too loud for conversation. Nicely decorated, clean. Efficient, pleasant service. Onion rings were very good. Hand cut fries could have been cooked a little more, they were a little too soft for my liking.

Great food and service. Brisket wasn't as good as last time I ate there but the ribs, pulled pork, and catfish were awesome! Please give this review a helpful vote if you found it helpful.

I have been here a few times over the last few years and the BBQ is truly bad. It might have been good if you got it off the jump, but most of it tastes like it has been cooked at an earlier time. Its some of the driest bbq i have had in a long time. The atmosphere is... More

Such a variety of options on the menu. Pulled pork, ribs, chicken, fish, salad. I prefer to go when it's not overly busy as it can get loud, but it is definitely worth eating here.

This is a great place to eat. We make sure we go there every time we are booked at the Madrid Bluegrass Festival. This year, we brought two festival goers with us and they loved the food.

We were seated right away, even though the place was very busy on a Sunday afternoon. It took a while for our waitress to initially serve us but then the drinks and food came out relatively fast, and the server checked back with our table numerous times. We ordered the smokehouse salad, which contained smoked chicken, bacon, greens and cheddar... More
