“Not Bad”
Review of Smokey's on the Bay - CLOSED

Smokey's on the Bay
Restaurant details
Reviewed February 23, 2013

About a 6 minute walk from the Alexandra resort.

The location of this restaurant, although close to the resort, left something to be desired. It was located in what appeared to be a seedy hotel. I was a bit nervous walking through the hotel driveway area to get to the restaurant.

The interior was simple and clean. Very friendly service. We were the only people in the restaurant aside from a few locals at the bar.

Had fried conch, rice and beans, jerk chicken, mac and cheese. All was okay. Nothing amazing.

Not sure if I would go back. Nothing that special.

Location is just a bit of a challenge, but we found out its close to Middle Caicos Cafe and inside a little mall type area. The food was great and they are accommodating with our request. A place worth visiting to get local food at reasonable price.

Smokey's is the perfect choice for a delicious meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Portions are generous and service is friendly. My husband and I first tried Smokey's early in 2012. We had enjoyed several upscale meals during our stay and were looking for some casual, comfort food. The sign pointing toward Smokey's had caught our attention several times and we decided to go for it. Were we ever glad we did! The atmosphere was very casual and there were friendly locals milling about. We ordered the melt-in-your-mouth jerk chicken. It was wonderfully juicy and the level of spice was just right. The sweet of the plantains are the perfect balance to the spicy of the chicken. Smokey came by our table and introduced himself, allowing us the opportunity to tell him in person how much we enjoyed and appreciated our dinner. At this time, we were planning our Grace Bay wedding and decided that food catered by Smokey's would make the perfect rehearsal dinner. We returned to discuss it with Smokey who gave us his contact info and assured us that he would be happy to accomodate.

In October 2012 we arranged to pick up jerk chicken, herb chicken (not spicy), ribs, fried fish, conch fritters, plantains, peas(beans) and rice, mac-n-cheese, and slaw to serve 25. As a catering option, it was a fantastic value. Our order was ready and waiting for us to pick up right on time and we had the pleasure of hosting a delicious, local meal in our hotel suite. Again, the food was fantastic and there was plenty of flavor and variety to suit all our guests- kids and grown ups alike.

Don't be afraid! When we opened the door I looked at my husband and he rolled his eyes. Well we're here, we'll give it a shot anyway.
Hubby loved his ribs! I had fried lobster ($14) and it was tasty.
We were the only people in the place but the food was alright...5 star Jonny aproved.

Hard to find. In an office complex on the back side. NO Ambience. Smokey and his friends were at the back end of the bar entertaining one another. Very limited drink choices a the bar. No bourbon. We were literally the only people who ordered dinner on a Fridaoy night. Jerk chicken was good
We did meet Smokey and he told us that he did well at his previous location, took the monry, traveled, gambled, entertained himsef, and now, here he is.
