Oh my, we loved our dinners To-Go (Due to Covid)...salads came with mixed greens & house garlic dressing, Baked Salmon with maple glaze & baked potato and Chateaubrian with green beans. The bread rolls were so fresh! Everything was so delicious! Thanks for bringing us...such happiness and healthy dinners!More

This is a fine dining restaurant which we did not know and are not familiar with. We were not dressed well, and were a bit unkempt from biking that afternoon. That said, the staff was super pleasant to us, despite this. We had an appetizer...thing served to us free with cheese & grapes. We both had fish and the pumpkin curry soup and it was all very tasty. We even decided to do desserts since they sounded too tasty to pass up (tiramisu & bread pudding). They did not disappoint. The atmosphere was classy, though many people were casually dressed, and many locals seemed to know one another. It was an enjoyable dinner.More

Visited after 10 years and the food was as good as I remembered. Smokey's has the best steak in the Northwoods and possibly the state. The salmon was phenomenal. I recommend a craft martini as well.

Smokey’s is ready to serve locals and vacationers again in 2020. It is truly a gem of the North when it comes to supper clubs. From a friendly bar with a piano player to their comfortable dining room, every detail is perfect. The menu is...wide ranging, and the food quality is superior. The wait staff is the best. We have never been disappointed whether we are dining as a couple or with a group of 10. Everything is always very goodMore

We decided to stop in on a Friday while traveling to Bayfield, based on all of the excellent reviews. We made a reservation for 5pm which was probably not necessary as there were only two other diners at the time. Perhaps they fill up later...in the evening. First, the place is spotless and the restrooms immaculate! You are met at the door by the hostess, she takes your coats and hangs them in the coat closet. Nice touch. We opted to be seated right away instead of going to the bar. We were greeted by a friendly server who took our drink order. As we perused the menu, the server described the one special- veal saltimboca. I was deciding between the chicken scarpella and a ribeye/ tenderloin entree option - but then decided to try the special, which I have had many times elsewhere and made myself a few times. My husband ordered the Canadian walleye. We both opted for the chefs special vegetable, baby bok Choy with a soy sesame glaze which was delicious!! Our salads came first- which were underwhelming, but we held out hope for entree. The veal arrived and was nothing like what I have experienced with veal saltimboca. It was a HUGE veal chop, bone in, wrapped in prosciutto ... and then it went awry. It was coated in Panko, and served atop a non reduced salsa style sauce - no wine/Demi glacé sauce and no detectable sage. I struggled with the first and only two bites I took, but did bring it home in hopes someone at home May like it. I did not send it back nor complain because it was obviously the chefs interpretation of the dish. My husbands fish came and he said it was good but certainly not exceptional. Perhaps we ordered the wrong menu items? The other diners were raving about their food! She had the lobster thermador and he had some sort of beef option. The service was excellent, and would give it another try next time traveling through.More

You will feel spoiled here with the great food and wonderful staff. We went on a week day so there wasn't a problem getting reservations. It is a supper club+ as far as classy atmosphere. Everything was crisp, clean and relaxing. Uline Corp owns this...business and they know how to show hospitality and class.The food was delicious and I was so glad it was NOT a barbeque place. Loved it.More

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