Award winning chef, restaurateur, author and TV personality, Guy Fieri, brings his dining concept, Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, to Fourth Street Live!

Inducted into the American Royal BBQ Hall of Fame in 2012, Guy Fieri’s passion for BBQ is heavily influenced in this flagship location. The restaurant features 6,700 square feet of dining space, a 2,200 square foot patio, a large smoker custom made by Ole Hickory, and two bars.

Guy Fieri's Smokehouse features all types of smoked meat options, from starters like Trash Can Nachos to entrees like the 18-Hour Smoked Brisket. They also bring signature sandwiches and burgers to life, like the Motley Que sandwich and the Bacon Mac N Cheese Burger. Desserts, like the Cheesecake Challenge - half of a NY style cheesecake - are massive and shareable.

The cocktail menu is also large and varied, with items like the Caliente Margarita, the Hangover Recover BBQ Bloody - served alongside a skewer - and a large bourbon, wine and craft beer selection.

While the food was “good,” my expectations were a bit higher and unmet. I made a reservation for my birthday, and was underwhelmed by the greeting and overall experience. The brisket (I love brisket) was tender, but no better than a neighborhood bbq. The Brussel sprouts were just a tad undercooked, but the slaw was refreshing. I wasn’t impressed for a big name in the food business.

This pains me to provide a negative review, however things were so terrible I can not keep silent. We were in town for a large event and all of the restaurants on Fourth Street Live were extremely crazy busy. Our event was a year in the making and all business were expecting us and most were well prepared.
We were a table of six and we were seated toward the very end of the night. The amount of time it took to be greeted by our server who was whizzing past us for over 15 minutes, was a bit excessive. His overall service from that point was the bare minimum he needed to provided and he made it clear through words and actions that he wasn't happy to be providing that (he told us he had already mentally checked out).

What was most disappointing was the food. Our last visit provided us with one of the most delicious memories; the meatloaf, the meat sampler plate and most of all the fresh pork rinds for an appetizer. We raved to our guests about what they could expect and everyone could forgive the bad service if the food was as we expected. It was however completely sub-par. Everything was cold, overcooked and the french fries were so disgustingly dry and brittle from sitting around too long - they basically served the un-servable.

Some would say that this is to be expected from a chain restaurant where people are just working a job and not invested in the end product, but I would argue a chain like this had been a gem and needs to be aware of where they have been falling short so they can work of fixing what is clearly broken.

Disappointing meal. My wife had the meatloaf which the waiter recommended. She found the meal not eatable and sent it back. I had the combo plate of ribs, pulled pork, brisket and three types of fries. The brisket was very good. The pulled pork okay. The ribs were tough. All and all a disappointing dinner.

The service wasn't that great. We didn't have utensils and the waitress said to just use our fingers until she could find us some. I ordered a cocktail and 30 mins later she came back to tell me they couldn't make it so I needed to pick something else. I couldn't get a refill of my tea. We ordered nachos as an appetizer and the waitress took our plate away when We had still been eating on it. Had to track her down to get the bill..pay the bill..and get Togo boxes. She came back and said she had a party and that is what took up all her time so that's why she couldn't give us enough attention. We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was great though.

I wasn’t impressed. Note to Manager - if you are going to have a table close to your Hostess Station - warn staff to watch their language. Not the cleanest language for the general listening public and especially not for your family dinner guests. I could have done without that bit of entertainment.

The customer service was not acceptable at all. Our waiter, Kevin, was wearing his phone on his arm and also had a blue tooth piece in his ear. He had more conversations (I watched) with other employees than he did our table. The manager came around and asked about the food he grabbed is re-fills. All the while Kevin is still wondering around aimlessly. Food was alright, came out hot. I guess I just expected more out of this dining establishment. I probably will not return.

Got the bacon mac n cheese burger and didnt taste the mac, it was just kind of in there, not much cheese on the mac. Portion was good, a d the seasoned waffle fries were awesome. My son got the triple decker grilled cheese and said the same thing about the mac n cheese that was in there - his mac n cheese just kind of fell out as he ate.

Food was very good and our waitress was very friendly and it was obvious that she was trying her best to do her job. Our only complaint resulted from improper training. When they brought us our meals, mine was not correct. They explained that something was wrong with their printer in the kitchen. The real problem was that they took my meal away to correct it but left my wife's dinner sitting in front of her while we waited. Obviously, it got cold. Our waitress was very apologetic and was trying to make certain that the problem got taken care of. I blame the management for not training the servers to know that in a situation like that, you take back both meals until the problem is corrected.

Wonderful experience that began with our waitress "Bree" - she was very friendly & attentive. Next came the food - oh my!! The MOTLEY QUE sandwich (14 hour pit smoked pulled pork, bourbon brown
sugar BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, shredded cabbage, crispy onions, garlic toasted pretzel bun) was excellent and the BACON MAC n CHEESE BURGER (smoked bacon, crispy onion, six cheese mac n
cheese, LTOP, super melty cheese sauce, and donkey sauce, all stacked on a garlic-buttered
brioche bun) was a unique and very tasty twist on a burger. The piece de resistance, however, was the Burbon Chocolate Cake topped with Heath Bar chips- WOW! Could easily feed 5 people. The only criticism was the weak coffee that we had with our dessert (but who goes to a Guy Fieri restaurant for the coffee anyhow?).

The pork wing are amazing. Everything else was not good. Sides did not have any flavor. We got sweet corn and brussel sprouts. The almost 40 dollar big sample plate was anything but big. 4 thin stripes of brisket,3 ribs, half cup of pulled pork and a 4 inch sausage. If you're wanting great bbq this is not the place.

Brought my business team here, 10 of us. Service was outstanding. And the food was as good.I pride myself on my smoked ribs but these might be better. I’ve never said that before. And some of my team ordered the chicken which they gushed over. Bottom line: amazing food, amazing service, casual environment, underpriced. We’ll be back.

The food was good and our server was very attentive and accurate. Unfortunately, after our party had eaten our food and enjoyed several beverages, we discovered that the check had added a $1 Derby charge to each item. Each drink. Each entree. Each side. It wasn’t that we couldn’t afford the additional charge; it’s the fact that we weren’t advised and wouldn’t have been had we not caught it. Very shady.

Food was terrible. We were one of only a few tables yet it took forever to get our food and when it arrived, it was cold, chewy and all around bad. We had low expectations going in... we expected about as much as you can expect from a chain restaurant. However, it still undelivered. Food was TERRIBLE. Never again.
