                                            Been here multiple times. Main dish and sides are usually very good and tasty. Today however the brisket was dry and not as good as other times. Would go back again.

                                            Delighted to find the restaurant had opened up next to the hotel I was staying at during a biro to NYC. In previous visits I had visited the original BSmoke and loved it. This was e equally good and loved it and will be back next time!

                                            Good food and great service. Not the best BBQ is the world, but good tasting! It’s a nice twist on a smoke meats joint.

                                            Good place for dinner after the movies (located next door) or drinks before. Very casual atmosphere, not too nosy. Staff is friendly and attentive. Food is okay, and reasonably priced, so you don’t feel like you’re over paying. Good beer and drink selection.

                                            Not our typical excellent experince...great service but the menu has changed a bit as we usually start off with Madelines and cracklins only to discover they have removed cracklin's! They have also changed to "family style". Not sure why, maybe a bit more helping of sides but the food came out room temperature. My favourite brisket was not as tender as usual. .. bring back the cracklin's!!

                                            Needed someplace close to the ferry for a nice brunch/lunch and Blue Smoke didn’t let us down. Nicely paced meal and not rushed at all. Wait staff worked together to cover any needs. Food was a pleasant surprise and made the day. Thanks!

                                            Service was fast and accommodating, felt like we were old friends...loved the atmosphere and the food was delicious! I had the burger, which was extra juicy and my lil/older sis had the ribs with sweet potatoes and Mac and cheese, which I ate...I will definitely come back again! 🤤

                                            One of the best "go to" restaurants for anyone. Always a pleasant atmosphere. Good food and cocktails - regardless of which location you decide to dine. Service is always plus. Be sure and have the cornbread madeleines. Delicious!! Don't forget Jazz Standards for some good listening sounds downstairs at the 27th Street Blue-Smoke location.

                                            I’ve been here a few times with my twin babies because it is super child-friendly. The food is great... I’d recommend anything on the menu that has fried chicken in it... so good. Very nice staff. The only minor issue was that I noted on the reservation and confirmed with the host that it was my birthday, but they didn’t do anything special. No biggie. Still love the place and will go back many times.

                                            Wonderful meal. Barbecue salmon outstanding, as was brisket. Sides of coleslaw, mashed sweet potatoes, collard greens were wonderful. Desserts great too, especially hand pie and key lime pie. Highly recommend and hope to return soon. Music playing in the restaurant, but we were a party of 6 and were able to talk and hear each other -a big plus on a Saturday night.
