We had an excellent dinner at Smokey's this evening. Even though we didn't have reservations, they were gracious and made room for us. The prime rib was delicious! Service was top notch; as were the after dinner drinks and piano entertainment. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience. Well worth the drive from Wausau.

Beautiful, newer facility still with great supper club feel. Great bar, wonderful staff from the chefs, hostess and waitstaff to the kitchen crew. Always thoughtful, kind and knowledgable. Fantastic, well diverse menu. Steaks are amazing, seafood and fish always delicious and perfect, wonderful combinations of sides. Salads and tapenades/cheeses are a great start. Never disappointed

Smokey's has an excellent ambiance, and a great pianist, but some of their servers do not know the menu and cannot explain it. It is overpriced, but the food is usually good. We will go back at some time, but it is a strain on a retired person's budget.

We visited Smokey's on July 18 for dinner. We had 8 diners, so had the opportunity to taste multiple entrees. The duck legs were outstanding --- somewhat confit-like. Not your typical northwoods Bohemian style. The osso bucco was tender, as were the special house ribs. The halibut special was beautifully prepared and a bit hit. Crab cakes with apricot sauce excellent. We drank house wines, all much enjoyed. Dinner for 2 with ample house wine was about $90.
Restaurant is quite popular and can be a bit when the dining room is full.
