Smoak BBQ - Rochester
Great food with excellent service! Portions are generous.
Tried ribs, chicken and brisket. All were great, as was the Mac n cheese. Fries were super good.
Service is always just ok. The food is delicious, drinks are fantastic, and laid back atmosphere is perfect.
Wonderful place and great food. We always have great service. Thanks.
Good food and good vibe.
This was our fourth time eating at Smoak. The food is typically very good and fresh. This time was no exception. Great food, great value. Service could have been a little better. We had to wait on drink refills several times.
We loved the food. very very good The ribs were perfect and turkey was wonderful
Everything is usually great. The service is ok, though. Servers often forget things. Drinks are amazing.
Always a great experience. Hard to go anywhere else.
Best nachos in town with a great selection of craft beer.
Literally my favorite restaurant in Rochester!
The food was excellent. Our waitress was very knowledgeable concerning the menu. She was very attentive. The ambiance was great. Will certainly go back.
We went to get drinks at the bar for our anniversary. There was trivia night which was fun and a great way to be entertained.
Great as always, and the patio was delightful.
No skimping on portion size, good flavor, nice spicing. Foods that should have been hot weren't.
Great casual atmosphere
Seated right away.
Ambience was great and we got our food very quickly.
Payment was easy...right at the table.
Birthday- it was great and he
My son chose Smoak for his birthday dinner. The first time we were here was in January and we were impressed. This was our second visit and it did not disappoint! Yummy food (those nachos were delicious!) We will be back!
Outstanding food, service, drinks and ambiance. The entire serving and management staff were attentive, friendly, and welcoming.
It was slightly busy, but our server wasn’t overly attentive and additional staff should have been working or helping. It took at least 10 minutes before we were asked for our drink orders. It will be a while before we go back, as there are many other options in the area. The food was good, but the service definitely soured our experience.
Great atmosphere! Need to go back multiple times to find menu favorites.
Amazing food and Fabulous Server! Samuel made the experience enjoyable! Very courteous, prompt and knew his stuff. Can't wait to visit again!
Had lunch on the patio on a Wednesday with a friend. Pulled pork sandwich was very good. Mac and cheese side was mediocre. Very attentive and quick service. Nice patio.
Will go back again.
Great food, service was excellent and the Brussels sprouts are unbelievable.
My kids would eat them prepared this way.
Side portions are very large.
Great food at an even better price.
Highly recommend the 3 meat trey.
Brisket was da bomb- melted in your mouth! Son enjoyed the huge portion of pork nachos.
First visit to Smoak. It was Fathers Day, early reservation. We were seated right away but waited 45 minutes for our food. The food was tasty and ample, and I felt a good value for the price. Employees were wearing masks, except for one staff member who was working at the serving bar. I counted 3 staff members who’s masks were only covering their mouths and not noses. In these days of Covid, I felt uneasy with this. We are the Med City and can do better, especially since we have so many out of town guests. Please review your procedures and make sure everyone wears masks and wears them correctly.
Great outdoor bar! Highly recommend it!
The atmosphere @ SMOAK is welcoming & relaxing!! Amazing indoor outdoor bar! Really good food, drinks & service!! Always look forward to my next time back for either Lunch, HH or dinner!!! Best barbecue & whiskey drinks in Rochester!
Excellent all around. Service, atmosphere, and food all worth repeat visits! Clean.
Second visit to Smoak since they've opened and I'd have to say, they've got their game on! The rib are meaty and flavorful as is the 1/2 chicken. Love the smoked turkey salad of the day as a side and the mac& cheese is super. Dined outside and what a nice patio just outside the main entrance. Like the bar that opens up to the patio for seating on either side. Definitely will be back!!
Only issue was seeing employees in the kitchen and packing to go orders with masks down under noses and even down under mouths. And they were seating in booths directly next to each other and not 6 feet apart.
Everything was awesome. I would highly recommend the brisket!
It was nice to dine in! I accidentally undertipped the server- bad math by me. I’ll try to make it up to her sometime. Sorry.
We sat outside on their patio which was great. We both agreed the sandwiches we ordered were just pretty average tasting but the vegetables were great. We had brussel sprouts and collard greens and would order both again.
Lovely outdoor space, nicely decorated indoors top. Their SMOAK drinks are fabulous and presentation like nothing I’ve seen before. Outstanding food and service!
Go, just do it!!
