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.

Great atmosphere for good BBQ. Our cocktails were not as good as we would have hoped. The first server really did not seem to know what cocktails were.

Food was off the charts!! The hostess sat us at a dirty table. Not a ton of attention to detail by front of house. We did come in mid afternoon however, a restaurant of this caliber should be on top of things.

Outside temp was around twenty degrees. Everyone inside was eating fully jacketed and bundled up. Wasn’t offered Valentine’s Day special menu. I had seen it on a email I received which prompted me to even reserve a table here. We decided to upcharge a side for the “Mac daddy mac and cheese” it turned out to be regular noodles with shredded cheese on top. When we received all our food it was ice cold. Even the middle of my pile of pulled pork felt like it had almost come out of the refrigerator. Since both me and my gf both have anxiety we opted not to bring it up to the waitress and cause a scene in a busy restaurant and will instead be contacting the restaurant directly. I am a avid fan of guy fieris work and will continue to watch his shows but his restaurant downtown is not up to par.

Kept open mind inspite of previous reviews, however it was not a good experience overall. Food was average, was place between front door and side door with family. It was very cold and some of the same employees went outside at least 3 times to do whatever they were doing. This could be a descent BBQ restaurant, lacking management.

Service was terrible and there was no pulled pork available so you couldn’t order half the menu. How does a bbq place not have pulled pork?? The garbage can nachos were drowned in cheese with little to no other toppings. Overall it was awful.

This was our second visit. Did not meet up to first visit. As we sat down the waiter announced they had no pulled pork. An ingredient in most of the dishes and what we wanted. We order the platter and they gave additional ribs to substitute for the pork but only after we asked. Excuse for being out was that it was the holiday .... disappointing. Took long to get our food. Meals didn’t come out all at one time and there was quite a bit of time between seeing the server. They also didn’t check us I. With Open Table so I received a note saying we didn’t show for our reservation when we actually did. Expensive for the experience. Would not return

We had a reservation and were quickly seated. Our waiter came over and greeted us and said he would be back with menus . Took a few minutes, for him to return, then we were told there was no drink menu available, as it was between seasons. This was mid November. A little disappointed, we ordered our usual drinks. Took a long time to get them, 10-15 minutes! Our server went over the food menu and was helpful in making choices. Thankfully food service was quicker than bar. Our dinners came out with no problems, but nothing fantastic. Sadly, our visit did not meet our expectations, would not recommend or return.

We were completely disappointed with Guy Fieri's Smokehouse. The experience was terrible from the beginning. Although we had reservations, the hostess sat us near the front of the restaurant beside an outside door that opened and closed every 60 seconds and closed with a loud bang (very annoying). We tried to order from the menu, only to be informed that every pork item was not available due to a kitchen mishap. We were also informed that the fondue was not available, so it seemed like one third of the menu on a busy Friday night was not available at a barbeque restaurant! We ordered the beef brisket, and what was served were large chunks of fat that contained only modest amounts of beef. The brisket was served with cold fries and a small amount of coleslaw (about three teaspoons of slaw). We complained to the manager, who apologized for the poor food quality and limited menu options. We had such high hopes for our first visit to Guy Fieri's, but were terribly disappointed with the experience. We will not return and we will advise our friends of our bad experience and recommend that they not bother to dine at Guy Fieri's (there are many better barbeque options).

Appetizer was almost $20 but delicious, probably the best part. Our server was super sweet and quick. The restaurant ran out of one of the entrees we ordered and the alternative was bland. The experience felt rushed but given the occasion, it’s understandable. Theme restaurants are usually lackluster and this one is no different.

While the BBQ was tasty, the service was really, really slow. It took about 10 minutes for our server to arrive to our table only to tell us that she would be right back. It took a while to get our first drink, and from that point forward everything just continued on at a very, very slow pace. If you want good BBQ and you are willing to wait, then it's a solid choice. If you prefer a little better service then maybe you might want to go elsewhere.

We get there about 15 minutes early. They first seem confused we put a reservation in. I had mentioned how it was my wife's birthday. No acknowledgment. They take a few to take us to our table yet the establishment was barely full. Fine. We have one waitress come over and ask us if we want a drink and mentions it is happy hour. We order a Bud Light and mojito. No problem. However it takes another waiter to realize we still don't have drinks and he rushes to get those done. As we are waiting for our other party we order the pork rinds. I found them gross. No seasoning and way over cooked but my wife (the birthday girl) was starving. We order a second round of drinks another Bud Light and amaretto sour. Our friends show up and we order quickly as our concert is at 8. My wife and I share the trash can nachos and guys burger combo with two sides of donkey sauce. The nachos barely had any meat and all beans on them but we were completely starving by then. My burger basically tasted like all relish and cheese. The fries were either to crispy or not enough. Once again nothing done like a scoop of ice cream for the birthday girl. Then I get the bill. Her two drinks a mojito and amaretto was $20.00. By time I got done paying with tip our meal was over $70.00. I definitely felt like I did not get anything for the value and nothing done for my wife. I should of just taken her somewhere else.

Server was new but very nice, only great part of the entire experience. Food average at best. Got two burgers one w/ the Mac and cheese and “signature” burger that won awards? Yeah not seeing it.
