Description: This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. Voted the Best in Orlando by readers of Orlando Magazine and AOL City Guide, the Smokehouse Grill is an award-winning, authentic Southern Barbecue restaurant that provides a unique rustic atmosphere for you to enjoy some of the tastiest ribs, 21-day aged steaks, fresh seafood and more! Having discovered the secrets to great tasting barbecue, the Smokehouse Grill uses only the finest ingredients and Southern Pride smokers to slow cook the brisket to perfection for more than 14 hours and the St. Louis Style ribs for 5 hours. Start your dinner off right with a Snake Bite Martini or our popular Pina Colada, handcrafted with coconut ice cream. The breakfast buffet at the Smokehouse Grill lives up to its award-winning standards as well, serving up a variety of omelets, specialty pancakes such as Red Velvet, eggs and more, and your meal is not complete without trying our famous brisket hash. Be sure to save room for one of our decadent desserts made in-house and served fresh every day.

On vacation during the Thanksgiving holiday and stayed and Westgate resorts. My husband and wanted to try the local fare but really did not want to travel very far. Decieded to try the Westgate Smokehouse based on the commercials that were on the resort channel of best places to visit. The commercial was great so we said "Why not?" Walked into The smokehouse and it was very impressed. We were greeted and immediately seated. Had a great waitress named Kerrie and then had an even great experience when the manager Adam came to our table. SUPER FRIENDLY!! Great job! If you want some AMAZING RIBS you must go to the Westgate Smokehouse. First they blow you away with the enormous rack of ribs served in a large Skilette. Impossible for one person to eat this! I am from Tennessee and we know ribs. Had the cole slaw and sweet potatoe fritters.......I had to take some CARROT CAKE! Decadent. Enuf Said..............You wont be dissatisfied. Did I mention they bring out a basket of fresh baked bread???

Combo BBQ for one can easily feed two, as was recommended by our very friendly and helpful server, Tony. The St. Louis style ribs, brisket, ham and pulled pork were great! Unique sweet potato fritters. The baked beans were both sweet and tangy. Quite a bargain for dinner for two and leftovers for lunch @ about $20 + drinks. Also, lots of non-BBQ options that looked good -- steaks, fried chicken, burgers. We will go back!

I am a Southerner and I like ribs. I hesitate to order them in beautiful restaurants with ambiance but I was lucky! The barbeque sauce was exceptional. My family swooned over six varieties of free bread.
