Smokey's is consistently excellent. The prime rib on Friday and Saturday is outstanding! The chocolate lava cake is a must. The fish is always fresh! Great service! Basically, everything is awesome!

This is a linen tablecloth restaurant where you get a great complete meal at really reasonable prices. The menu has recognizable choices for everyone. During our last visit four of us each had different meals. We all felt the food was delicious.

We had an early reservation and almost wished we had to wait just to sit at the bar to listen to the keyboard player. The food was excellent and equally lovely service. I look forward to going back.

Not sure. Usually wood fired grills are exposed, but not here. I feel it is more traditional cooking. But very good.
