Every time we go to Greenville we make sure we stop here! There food is amazing and a great price. However, it is very popular so make sure you call ahead to put your name on the list. And if there is a wait, we always walk around the park until they call us. I personally love the sandwich sampler.... More

What can I say? It's just not great BBQ. It's edible. Great location, cool space, cool name. I've given it multiple opportunities to change my mind to no avail. Now, in fairness, I am very hard to please when it comes to food, especially BBQ.

The food at Smoke on The Water is excellent. There are many choices from the starters to the maim coarse. Caroline provided excellent service even though the restraunt was very busy. The oysters where excellent as well as the chicken and brisket. Everyone was very happy with the food and service.

The food is great, the staff are excellent at what they do, the prices are on point and the outdoor area is perfect. I've never had to wait for my food once I've been seated, which, can get a little hard on weekends cause as you can imagine, this place gets busy. I go to the bar area a lot... More
