Wanted to check out #1 in Chillicothe. Loved the smoke smell 😛. The mushroom appetizer was delicious. And the service was very good. I was hoping for the Prime Rib dinner but it was sold out. Food was good but it didn't rock my world. Overall a great place to try, one stop never lets you have the whole experience.

This was not our first time at Old Canal Smokehouse nor will it be our last. We've tried many of their menu items and have yet to be disappointed . The food is always delicious and the service always spot on. I highly recommend this restaurant.

They smoke fish, beef and pork on site. Great brisket. They have a full menu for the whole family with specials each day. Full bar with brew from the area.

Unique and friendly place to eat. There are several rooms for seating and outside seating too. Everything is delicious that I have tried. Staff is knowledgeable with menu items and very helpful with selections. Meals have nice portion sizes-I always have extra to take home with me. This is one of my favorite places in Chillicothe to go.

I'm partial to the pulled pork but the brisket is great too. And you MUST have the corn casserole as one of your side dishes. The service is as good as the food.

This restaurant cannot be beat. Anything on the menu is tasty. I love the succulent pulled pork with sweet potato tots. My friends love the corn casserole. It has a porch you can sit on in the summer to enjoy your meal. Also there is a banquet room available. This is my go to when I need comfort food!

We have been here several times and it has quickly become my favorite in Chillicothe . Food is amazing ! Make sure you get there early on weekends or you will definitely have to wait.

Read the reviews on TA and spoke with some locals while visiting the area, so decided to try out this restaurant. Dropped in without reservations but they seated us anyway. The atmosphere is quaint and the facility was spotless. The service was excellent! The food was excellent! Between two of us we had BBQ brisket and Tilapia. Both were great!

We went for a double date and the food was delicious! They even sat us next to the Christmas tree which made it romantic! I loved the atmosphere and the food! Will definitely eat here again when we are passing thru!

I went there 3 times in the week I was here because it was so good. The waitresses and waiters are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. Excellent food. I had flights of craft beer each time. Get the pulled pork, brisket or baby-back ribs, they are top notch. They also have their own sauces.
