Great BBQ, reasonably priced- $161 for family of 6 - shared apps and dessert and a couple beers. TVs around, pleasant service (thanks Shelby). Not the most gourmet meal but just what we wanted.

“Excellant food, atmosphere and service”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

After 2 disappointing meals here on the island we finally hit the jackpot. Our server, Jennifer, was very personable and helpful in choosing our meals. The blackened grouper was the best I've ever tasted and my husband's sampler platter was huge and delicious. We definitely recommend The Smokehouse!!

Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

I went in to the smokehouse tonight with my kids, our friends and their kids. Our food came out quickly, and was absolutely delicious! I got a half rack, and the ribs were the best I have ever had. Kristen, our waitress was GREAT! She was kept up with all of us and made us feel right at home! My family will definitely be returning.

“Great family restaurant with excellent service”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Ribs were great, though I usually like a sauce with them.

Service was great - blonde waitress who was originally from England.

Tables a bit close together.

“Smokin' Smokehouse!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Food was great. Service was excellent. Mike and Kenzie were attentive and on top of everything . My girlfriend absolutely loved her meal and couldn't stop talking about it the rest of the day. And my steak was pretty good too!
