The food and service were excellent exceeded our expectations.
Food and service were great.
Over all the resturant was very cool. The waitress was attentive at first, but there were serval service issues. Brought our food but did not bring the sauces - we had to ask for them. They brought the wrong meal for my wife. The Brisket which I and another in our groupo had was ice cold and very tough. We asked for them to replace it and they suggested warming it up (Not acceptable) we asked for more and they were out so we received pulled pork instead. At that time we asked for refills on our water. The waitress did not come back until we were done eating - so we did not get refills until we were done. They did take 10% of of bill, but not much of an appology. It was disappointing. Rest of the food was very good.
The hostess was able to get us in an hour early for our reservation which was great. I had a bourbon smash and it was AMAZING! Service was great, and the food was great as well. Will be coming back!
All the food (we got the tasting plate) was delicious! Our drinks were great, too. Our server forgot about us for a while (I wasn’t able to order a second drink), but overall it all worked well. I’d definitely go again.
Very little indoor seating and outdoor seating is under a tint with extremely wobbly heating lamps.
Great wait staff, great food. Only issue was sitting right behind the host stand at the front of the restaurant because the phone rings right behind your head and it is very loud.
Took visiting friends for weekend Brunch and no one was disappointed. Made reservations for outdoor seating area and we were greeted and sat immediately upon our arrival. While the day was a bit chilly, the heated tables and tent was warm and energetic. Enjoyed cocktails and our server was attentive to our questions. Each of us ordered a different Brew City Biscuit and despite the size of them, our plates were empty by the end. Nueske's bacon and poutine waffle fries were great sides to share. We will be back Smoke Shack!
Bad food. Did not taste Smokey at all.
Delicious bbq and cocktails in a cool environment!
Awesome creamed corn. Weird sentence to write. Brisket and chixken were good and my son enjoyed the brisket cheesesteak.
Nothing really special.
Food was phenomenal!! Loved the vibes and atmosphere of this place!
Quality barbecue in a great location downtown. Staff very accommodating!
Love smoke shack, one of our favorite restaurants in Milwaukee.
Great food and great service! I would highly recommend the Smoke Shack.
Saturday night, NCAA tourney on TV, blues on the sound system, cold Shiner in my hand and smoked delicacies on my plate. What more could you ask for? Had a great time and will be back soon.
The staff was excellent and very accommodating to our time restrictions needs.
Needed to find an available high quality restaurant, Smoke Shack had an immediate table and BBQ sounded good
Everyone enjoyed their meal! Been here many times and it never disappoints.
We absolutely loved smoke shack. Our waitress, Lindsay so so incredibly nice and welcoming. We were in Milwaukee for a weekend but would come back just to have this great food and amazing service :)
Amazing Dinner, service and fantastic desserts! I highly recommend.
The brussel sprouts were the best I ever had! Everything was very tasty and was quick to order
Front door people could not find my reservation. I had a confirmation. Food was expensive and Bloody Mary overpriced.
Smoke Shack has been terrific because we've been able to eat outside all winter on their heated, covered patio. They have firepit tables in addition to tall heaters, so the patio is cozy and warm.
The food, such as brisket, wings, sweet potato fries, brussel sprouts, etc is always great and service is excellent.
If you'd prefer carryout, they have a carryout window.
We love Smoke Shack, one of our favorite places! We have never been disappointed, doesn't matter if dining in or taking out.
Great food and service! I recommend this restaurant.
Food was great as always, nice mix of local craft beer and standards on the menu.
Very pleasant staff, wonderful food, and a cozy atmosphere on a very frigid evening! Highly recommend!
The menu all looked so inviting but we had the best biscuit sandwiches in the weekend brunch menu. Bloody Mary and Mimosa flights were second to none. No disappointments.
Food, drinks, and service were all exceptional during our Downtown Dining week lunch. We'll be back!
Food was cold but other than that it was enjoyable.
We totally enjoyed our experience at Smoke Shack! We have only been out to eat 2x since last March. We were a little nervous trying indoor dining but from the minute we walked in we felt safe. The host reminded us that servers have been trained to only approach the table when all guests are masked! Tables were spaced nicely. Paper menus. Perfect! Our server kept 6 feet distance and made us feel welcome and safe at the same time. Now to the food! The brisket was amazing. The sausage was delicious! The sides were plentiful and tasty! And the bloody Mary’s were savory and had a good punch! Thank you for making our in-person dining experience so positive.
Next level BBQ!
Wonderful food and drink. Amazing service.
The Smoke Shack is a hidden bbq gem. The interior of the restaurant has a unique, shacky decor and they even offer outdoor seating in winter with plenty of shelter and patio heaters-SO GREAT!
The food was delicious and we'd recommend "The Count" during their weekend brunch.
If you're a bourbon fan, this is your spot! So many high-quality bourbons to compliment any of your meals.
Stop in for a wonderful meal, and even better service!
I shared a 3 meat plate and really enjoyed the food. The ambience was lovely for BBQ and the staff was incredibly friendly.
