“Tasty Smoked Ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

We have been visiting The Smokehouse on our yearly visits to HHI for many years. I share a full rack of ribs with my husband, it is less expensive than buying two 1/2 slabs and enough for two average size people. It comes with a small square of corn bread. I love the hot sauce so much I always buy a bottle to take home. My daughter said, she prefers a sweeter tasting sauce, but enjoyed her dinner. These ribs are smoked so they come served to you dry and you add the sauce. Service was attentive and good. We'll be back again.

Alex our server was great! The wings are fantastic. I have never had a bad experience. Their catering service is terrific. I am from Memphis and The Smokehouse is top notch BBQ in my book.

“Fav Restaurant for the Week!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

We went The Smokehouse basically because my husband was dying to have some BBQ - the service was great and the food was delicious, we were not disappointed!! This was his favorite meal of the whole week and not just because it was BBQ!! We had a party of 9 and sat outside on the patio area which had a great atmosphere!! We were well taken care of all night and would definitely go back. We highly recommend dining here for an enjoyable evening! We will visit again.

Our waiter Alex Hess was great, he was attentive and polite. The food was delicious and was cooked perfectly, and is one of mine and my husbands favorite restaurants on Hilton head island.

The service was great, the food was delectable and the employees were so nice! We ate there twice because it was THAT good! The first night Hennie was my server and she was personable & fun. Chris served us at the bar & the service was so quick! Definitely recommend to anyone going to the island! Great southern comfort food! :)
