We have been here twice. We have had the brisket fries, guacamole, brisket and brisket tacos. My wife loved her
Nashville hot chicken.

All were good but nothing that would make me say I can’t wait to come back and get that again.

Service is always great and very fast.

Very good happy hour. One of the items is the brisket tacos for $10. The tacos are full size and a lot of food. Drink prices are great during HH.

Very good restaurant overall!

The menu is full of tasty options - lamb tacos, several smoked meats, and an outstanding brisket chili. They have a full bar, but the interesting aspect of it are their drink creations, which are on their menu. The fries were waffle style (I am not a fan) were average, but were fine. They my least favorite item on the menu. The tables and chairs are on the industrial side, but that doesn't take away from the overall positive atmosphere. On our way out after lunch every employee we passed said goodbye and thanked us for coming, a nice and classy touch.

Our party of 6--including two St. Louis college students and one from Texas--were trying to find good CA BBQ. Craft delivered. I tried the McRib sandwich - a bucket list experience well worth trying. We discovered the Stockburger which had everything in the McRib except the BBQ bone in rib along with an added dollop of Mac-N-Cheese. Also exceptional was the Grilled Cheese with Brisket. If you like BBQ and particularly brisket, Craft is great.

This is a great smokehouse. the food is fresh and tasty. the drinks are great. our food was delivered less than 10 minutes after we ordered. I had the brisket tacos, and My sister ordered the Harris Ranch Short Rib, which was amazing and so incredibly tender. the portions are ample. we had asked about the street corn, and they brought us a side on the house to sample. Next time, i am definitely ordering the short rib birria quesadilla!

Tried Craft by Smoke & Fire with some friends. The food and service were excellent. Chef D stopped by our table to make sure we liked the food. We had a great conversation with him and let him know how delicious everything was. Highlights were Brisket Chili, Short Rib, Street Corn Named Desire and Bread Pudding. I heard the lamb was very good too.

New on the block ; the craft did not disappoint . From the moment we walked in the door the entire staff was so friendly , service was great and our waitress Krystal was attentive, kind , and quick and the food was phenomenal. We were lucky enough to even get to meet the Chef . Chef D surprised us by introducing himself and chatting with us for a bit . He was so friendly and gave us great cooking tips for at home as well. My friends and I all said we will coming back too many good things we have yet to try .
For reference we got the guacamole and street corn for appetizers.
Brisket tacos, brisket quesadillas and sausage.
And bread pudding for dessert .

Oh man! This place is super cute and I was stoked they could accommodate our large party.

Unfortunately, the night was very, very busy and it was very, very cold outside and with the doors open, freezing inside. Food came out fast but not consistent for the table. The hot food on metal trays with the freezing interior made it hard for the food to stay warm. It was a fun menu and I think at at a less busy time with better weather it would have been delicious.

Overall, the service was great considering the packed house and many large parties like ours. Honestly, if they could have either closed the doors to the patio or cranked the heater inside it would have made all the difference.

Better luck next time! Would give it a second shot.

Food is tasty! Service is great! A little pricey as everything is ordered separately if you want an entree. Sandwich is the best deal for your dollar. Inside is bright and spacious. (Only negative is the parking which is no fault of the restaurant. Carpool if you can.)

Great food, wonderful service (thank you Cadie - hope it’s spelled right. Your friendly service made the experience even better). The lamb was tasty and not gamey even at 2130 on a Sunday night. The bread pudding was delicious!

Really, really, really, good. Nice sized portions. Taste was on point - definitely in my top 10 rated BBQ’s and I’ve had BBQ from South Carolina to New Orleans, all over Texas, Kansas City KS, and Kansas City, MI.

Service was way way way above average - top 3 for any restaurant I’ve visited. It was hella busy but our server consistently visited us to make sure our drinks were filled and to answer any questions about the menu. She gave us some recommendations - which were spot on.

Highly recommend visiting this place if you’re in the area.

We had a group of 7. We're seated promptly. The waitress brought us a pretzel on the house. We also ordered the short rib quesadilla, garlic bread and nachos with chicken. The pretzel was amazing, homemade fresh bread and I don't even like pretzels. All the other appetizers were good as well. Everyone's meals came out quickly. My turkey was dry 😕, my husband's brisket was cool to room temp. Sides were mac and cheese and mashed potatoes, both were excellent. We were also given a free cookies and cream ice cream, which was excellent. And we ordered the mud pie, which was good as well. Service was excellent! Probably the best thing there! Drinks were decent. We were charged for the pretzel that was supposed to be free, but whatever, it was good.

Went here for my father's birthday and the whole family enjoyed it. It was a first for us and the food was delicious. The environment welcoming and the atmosphere was fun. Service did a great job especially since it was very busy while we were there. One of the owners was also incredibly nice to our family. We definitely will be back.
