Their baby-back ribs, pulled pork BBQ, wings and chili have amassed countless first place awards over the years. Other specialties from the BBQ pit include texas-style beef brisket, honey glazed smoked chicken, and turkey. The Smokehouse has a menu filled with many delicious items. Come try the fresh hand cut steaks, juicy burgers, sensational salads, and a wide selection Southern side dishes. Smokehouse on Palmetto Bay Road offers it fine food and friendly service in their spacious dinning room, and outdoor deck complete with fireplace. Enjoy one of their 14 ice cold drafts or cocktail while watching your favorite sporting event in their warm and inviting bar.

My pals and I ate there and thought is was a very good rib place since all four of us had the pork ribs. They didn't fall of the bone but were nice and meaty, were mildly spicy, you can add three different sauces if you like, and I did use the "mild, " which added a little more moisture.
We had baked beans and creamy slaw, liked it a bunch. Prices not out of line for Hilton Head. The menu was surprisingly complete, burgers, BBQ etc..There are other BBQ places here, but with the bar, entertainment, you can spend a very pleasant evening. Bob Ross

We stopped in for a couple of burgers. The burgers were good but buns were hard. Why is it when a restaurant isn't busy the service is the worst? Nice atmosphere if sitting closer to fireplace. But of course not busy and sat us away from fireplace.

We went there and ordered different things from the menu I ordered the ribs my dad orders the sampler platter. The full rack of ribs were delicious. The meat came off the bone with no problems. We didn't have to wait when we went after 7. If you go during the winter and its cold enough they have a nice fireplace outside on the patio if you enjoy sitting next to a fire. This was my first time there and it won't be my last either.

Love this place! I've gone here several times - their Sunday brunch is wonderful! $4 bottomless mimosa's - can't beat that! The staff is friendly and accommodating, always professional, restaurant is clean and the food is great. Their prices are also very reasonable compared to a lot of other restaurants in the area.

Love this place and the people so much that I ended up hiring them for my wedding rehearsal dinner/party to cater (I believe I set this up with Morgan) and was beyond satisfied! They were extremely professional, proper and so friendly. The food was great (as always) and fresh. The staff went above and beyond what was asked of them (or even expected of them) and I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. I found their catering prices to be extremely reasonable and I would most definitely recommend their services again. I know I'll be using them for whatever parties I happen to host in the future and will continue to frequent the restaurant as one of my favorites on Hilton Head Island. Definitely check them out if you're in the area or if you need catering.
