We were there Friday night for their Taste of the Bridge Day. It is an absolutely beautiful place. The food, staff and music were all great.

While not one thing particularly stood out, together the food, the outdoor dining, the general atmosphere, the friendly and attentive personnel, and people watching and a couple of nice beverages were a winning combination. Cannot be too food picky, as you may be disappointed, it is not a hundred foot buffet, rather small with nice touches.

I think the food at Smokey's deserves its title of "gourmet!" Where can you get perfectly cooked prime rib and perfectly prepared baked salmon at the same time? It takes a lot of coordination to offer excellent food in a buffet setting that's fresh and hot the entire time dinner is served. (They also serve breakfast.) Smokey's nails it!

Food, service and atmosphere were all good but the price of the buffet of $30 per is expensive. Otherwise the New River Gorge Bridge area has wonderful scenic views and rafting to enjoy.

We try to go at least once a year. Lovely setting, fresh veggies and salads and good buffet entrees. There is always fish and beef and then other entree choices. A cheese board and several delightful desserts. A full bar if you like and flavored iced teas. Everyone is pleasant and it is always an awesome wonderful experience and setting.

Thank wvjake
