4 years at UW and never went to Smokys. This trip was with family and kids at first turned up noses. Decor probably hasn't changed since 70s but the vibe and service was great. Only order filet mignon and hash browns - both excellent. Start you off with cottage cheese (honestly) and croutons - add a delicious Bloody Mary It's... More

There are a few reasons you may be disappointed with Smoky's - but I guarantee the steaks will not be one of the them. They were awesome. Just the right seasoning, perfect doneness (medium rare) and they came out sizzling. Now you may have to look past a few things. The flatware looked like it was borrowed from the University... More

After living in Madison for over 30+ years, I finally dined at Smoky's. We visited to have our Wisconsin Supper Club book signed. Our server, Larry, has been there for over 18 years...his experience was a refreshing attribute to the evening - he was very hospitable and handled our meal and experience with efficiency and ease. The table tried the... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner at Smokies on Saturday evening, June 11th. I ordered the light filet steak (5 oz) dinner with hash browns $23 and added a small salad. The steak was absolutely wonderful. My husband ordered the walleye pike with hash browns and a salad. We also had the relish tray with carrots, celery, radishes and onions,... More

Seven of us had dinner at Smoky's at 7:00 pm on a Friday evening. Plenty of convenient parking and we secured a table shortly after arrival. Our server was excellent, very timely, engaging and attentive. Once again, my cocktail of choice - Maker's Mark Manhattan served up - excellent choice, perfectly prepared! Our appetizer was of course Wisconsin Cheese Curds... More

Smoky's always pleases. Absolutely fantastic food and the service is always excellent. Martini Bob makes the best cocktails in Madison. I drive from Norther Illinois to eat here.

Smoky's reputation brought us here. 11 adults sat down to dinner. The staff was very professional. The cocktails were good. Menu prices for steaks started in the high 30s. It was good, but I was expecting better based on their reputation alone. I will give them another shot when in Madison again.

We went to visit friends in Madison and decided to have dinner at Smoky's. We were seated right away, even though they were quite busy. Right from the start, our service was way below what you would expect from a top notch supper club. Three of us ordered the filet and one the prime rib. The prime was excellent, as... More

Wanting to check-off another location on the Wisconsin Supper Club tour, we recently stopped at Smoky's Club and were quite pleased with our experience. Growing up in Wisconsin, I have been a fan of supper clubs for most of my life, thanks to my parents who frequented them often. They often talked of Smoky's, but never took me there to... More
