My husband and I ate here a few years ago and did not have a good experience but decided to give it a second chance. And this is something we disclosed with host that seated us. We had our dog so we ate outside. They have great outdoor seating. We ordered our coffee and water and wings to start. We... More

I went to Smoke on the Water thinking I was going to get some awesome BBQ. Turns out the food was just OK and not much BBQ to choose from. The location is a ways from downtown so not easy to walk from my hotel. The atmosphere was nice. We had an event with about 30 people. They gave us... More

This bbq place has great smoked beef brisket. It's sliced so thin, you can cut it with a fork. They bring 4 sauces to the table, but the brisket is good without the sauce! Potato skins and the loaded mashed potato cake were also really good. Overall good food and a nice place. I'd eat there again!

We first ate here in 2008 when exploring for a new place to live. We were staying at the Hampton and were in search of a place to eat on a Sunday. Smoke on the Water was about the only one open. We were not disappointed and it's been a go-to place ever since. We now live about 25 miles... More

I took 3 new colleagues to my favourite Greenville restaurant and they all loved it! Our lovely server even sorted out getting my favourite special which isn't even on the menu - the black and blue rib-eye! I love this place and will always bring new visitors to Greenville along to try. We also visited the nice little pub behind... More

Love Smoke on the Water. Friendly Staff, great location and awesome food. I usually get the "home Plate" 3 vegetable sides. I also love the Asparagus appetizer and the Smoking Jackets. I can reccomend the Moody Blues cocktail

We were treated to an incredible dinner at this restaurant on a busy Friday evening where many family members from across the country met for the first time. Preparations were on cue with plentiful seating in a private dining area for all. Drink orders were quickly taken and filled while introductions were made. Appetizers showed up soon afterward including shrimp... More

We had lunch here and loved it. Great ambiance in the restaurant (outside seating available too), great service and delicious BBQ. I tried the pulled pork and had a choice of four BBQ sauces at the table. My companions had brisket and the soup and salad respectively. The bowl of Brunswick stew was large and the salad was enormous. Portions... More
