Went there last night 7/23/2016. Hostess sat us downstairs we started out looking at the menu but it was so hot inside that when our waitress came we asked if there was somewhere else to sit that was cooler. She said no that it was ridiculously hot in there. We left without eating. The items on the menu looked good... More

Menu has wings, burgers, chicken, pulled pork, and brisket. Along with local craft beers. Pulled pork sandwich was served on a toasted bun with pickles and slaw.... More

The Smoked Wings were amazing. So upset I didn't know about this place sooner. I will definitely be returning again and again.

I ate at Belmont HouseofSmoke for the first time last Sunday. I ordered The Brisket BBQ Sandwich with Potato Salad. My sandwich had two slices of brisket which were folded in half on a bun with pickles on the side. I thought the brisket was dry and unflavorable. The selction of sauces didn't do much to improve the taste. The... More

We went there with our daughter and grandson. The place is great. They took care of us right away and the food and service was fantastis. Their barbecue sauce complimented the brisket just right and their macaroni and cheese was really delicious. We Wil definitely be back.

I traveled to Norfolk for a retirement party at the Belmont House of Smoke recently. A heck of a long drive, but it ended up being worth it. Belmont House of Smoke sits in an unassuming strip mall that would not likely have tempted me to stop in without being specifically invited. Don’t be dissuaded by the fact that it’s... More

Our group of 5 enjoyed their lunches which ranged from BBQ pork sandwich to beer can chicken to BBQ nachos (huge portion). Friendly service. Easy to park at which is a plus in this area. We ate downstairs but there's another level with a bar upstairs.

Well my cousin & I wanted to try something new, so we decided to stop by this resturant. It was only 8:30pm, so no where near closing time! We walked in & it smelled delicious, which instantly made us feel like we made a good choice. Considering it was our first time, we weren't familiar with this place so as... More

I love everything I've eaten here. The smoked wings (on the app menu) are the best! They have a good beer list too.

Thank lstentz
