We were staying in Hilton Head for only one night and decided to just drive around and look for a good-looking restaurant. Risky way to choose, but we usually have good luck doing this. We stumbled upon The Smokehouse and decided to give it a try, even though it looked very busy. It was St Patrick's Day and the place was packed, but they were able to seat us immediately. The server's name was Charles and he was amazing. Right there to take our drink orders, and food orders and the drinks, appetizer and meals came out wth almost lightning speed considering the level of activity in that place. We talked to a few people and found that a lot of locals eat there. Charles was pretty much the perfeect waiter and we made sure our tip reflected this. I am looking forward to my next visit, whenever that may happen!

Food at the Smokehouse was excellent. This will definitely be one of the restaurants we return to next vacation. Mike was great, very efficient and attentive but not over the top. Thanks for the recommendations on the sauce mixing Mike.

A necessary part of our diverse Hilton Head dining is a visit to The Smokehouse for their very good food.

The decor/ambiance is mainly wood for a very casual setting, much like a sports bar. The dining area has several TV sets showing various sports events. There is a covered porch for outdoor seating. A large bar/lounge seats many people and has 10 - 12 TV sets showing different sporting events - some of these TVs are quite large.

As to the food - it is all very good. Based on having the Brunswick stew, pulled pork, chicken, brisket, baked beans, house salad, Caesar Salad, puled pork Tacos, French Fries and hamburgers I think it safe to assume that the other food is equally as good. The Brunswick stew uses their smoked meats and is an excellent, hardy stew/soup. The hamburger and French Fries are some of the best we have had. The house BBQ sauces, mild and hot, are very flavorful and present at all the tables as is a "honey mustard". A nice selection of wines and beers are available to complement the fine food.

This restaurant does not take reservations; if you do not like to wait arrive between 5:30 to 6:15.
