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.

Our breakfast and dinner was included in our package deal at Adventures on the Gorge and we chose Smokey's that morning. Best breakfast buffet ever! The outdoor seating area was beautiful and perfect to begin our day of adventure! Very friendly staff. We returned for dinner because breakfast was so good and they did not disappoint in the least!

Great food! Buffet but more like in service only. There were about 5 main courses and they were wonderful. Not the same main courses every night. Awesome salad bar and no wait when booked ahead of time. Also great breakfast options. The staff is always refilling so the food is fresh and hot.

Smokey's on the Gorge is one of our favorite spots to drive and eat. The setting is rustic and overlooks the New River Gorge so the views are some of the best you can get. Food is buffet style with selections that change daily. Although a bit pricey, I still think the unique setting and beautiful views makes it worth... More

Went on a white water rafting trip in West Virginia with a group of friends. Went looking for a fun place to have dinner and found Smokey on the Gorge. What a fun resort loaded with lots to do. The restaurant was the reason we were there. A Saturday night in Oak Hill you really need to have a reservation.... More

Overall, very good food quality for a buffet. Need to refill buffet more on weekdays. Very good beer selection and the view can't be beat!

Since we were staying on the grounds we stopped here for dinner. The food & drinks were a bit pricey, the taste of the food was okay. One of our orders was completely wrong and had to be sent back. The waitress seemed annoyed she had to get a manager, and even the manager seemed like she's made the same... More

We prepaid $25/meal for this dinner on a Monday evening. The décor of Smokey's is nice, waitress got our drinks very quickly, but food is just so-so...sort of like a Longhorn Steakhouse buffet without the steak and NO aus jus or gravy for meat and potatoes. There was an overcooked small (think tendorloin size, but it was a prime rib).... More

Had both breakfast and dinner buffets included as part of our rafting package. Wasn't expecting much, but WOW! Best Mac&Cheese ever. 4 types of protein (Chicken Rockelfeller; Herbed Pork; Some sliced Steak dish, and salmon - all excellent. Very good salad bar and deserts as well. Wasn't sure of the price since it was included, but would have paid $30+... More
