Had a reservation for 7 got there 5 minutes early were seated and told our server would be right with us. Waited until 720 before leaving because no one came to our table to check on us. Great value cause I didn't spend any money but everything else was poor.

I’m going to start with the fact that I drove past Smokehouse Brewing thinking that it was closed permanently, because outside of the building was decrepit. Dead plants and weeds was the entire front of the building. Granted it was a rainy day… It wasn’t helping matters any. No lights, no signage. I sat in the parking lot continuing to think that it was closed, you could see lights inside just barely through the windows. The rest- well it wasn’t bad and it wasn’t great. The decor is SO tired. The cushion that I was sitting on was very old and was coming up at the corners. The place has been the same for the past 15 years- not kidding. The food wasn’t awful but it wasn’t very good either. We were the very first people through the door, and it once it got busy, service was slow. But our waitress was very nice and I don’t think they were many of them. Unfortunately. Would I come here again? Not really no. Nope.

Excellent beer and service. Appetizers were good. Smoked meats were just OK, and quite dry.

We waited 20 minutes before a server arrived at our table. Enough to wait to ask the hostess if we needed to order at the bar. After the server stopped by, she became a ghost. She was rarely seen and without substance. Once our food finally arrived, my wife found a long dark hair in her wrap. Killed the appetites, but hey, the beer was okay (when I could get one).

Lackluster all around. Food was okay but the brisket wasn't actually smoked which was weird for a BBQ place. Pulled pork was smoked and was really good. Service was really slow and not very friendly.

The food was not as good as I expected. My brisket was dry a d my ribs were tiny. My wife enjoyed the meatloaf and my daughter said the brisket dip was good too. Also the Boom Boom burger was a good choice.

Father’s Day bbq lunch. Masks were still required 🤦‍♀️. Service was extremely slow. Took 3 hours for one app and lunch. They were NOT even slightly busy. They were understaffed. Severely. We had a new waitress. Took several tries to get the bill right. No bartender. Food was disappointing. Poppers were good. Brisket was fatty. Shredded pork sandwich was decent. Slaw was delicious. Post covid restart seems shaky.

Horrible experience. Waiter was awful, bbq sauce tasted like vinegar, meat was dry, the “dinner rolls” we were given we literally pre-sliced dry slider buns, and no one at the table liked their food. I would not recommend to anyone to attend.

We ended up at Smokehouse because so many other places were booked. It's a little out of the way on a main road so outdoor seating in the front was a little loud. Mostly families were there and not not a very energetic feel or look to the place. Food is a value, but you also get what you pay for. The pulled pork sandwich was okay, but nothing special. Staff was friendly enough.

First off I would like to say that I am not one to leave a bad review but this place was pretty bad and I did not want people to waist there money. I had been here once before about a year and half ago and the food was excellent. I do not know what happened but the food was terrible this time. The cobb salad had big chunks of the core, the BBQ was cold and not cooked all of the way. The server took forever to come and take our order, other tables where getting there food before us and we ordered first. They did not even came back to fill our drinks. Every person at the table was unsatisfied.

Food was fabulous. Great smoke flavor and dessert was the bomb! (Brownie) the waitress was overworked - not her fault. She was as attentive as she could be based on she was waiting tables and running the whole bar. Note to management...hire at least one more person. Your hostess was watching videos on her phone while the waitress was busting it, hope she doesn’t have to share her tips!
I’m sure they will blame it on covid but service shouldn’t be that compromised when you have a great product.

Had resos, still had to wait. One dining room open on a Sat night, and looked like 3 servers. Service was terrible. Food was average; nothing fantastic. Server was less than friendly. Fried fish was almost burnt and completely overdone. Not sure how you screw up fried food? Came to town for volleyball finals, so no reason to come back. Holders on table for “touchless menu” was filthy disgusting. Not a great experience.

Was very disappointed as we found this place through this site and wanted to try something new for Mother's Day dinner with son. Server was not friendly and never came back to offer refill of drink. Quality of food was not good. Ordered spare ribs and they were tough. Brisket baked beans were very sweet. My husband ordered chicken wings and said they were gross. and didn't eat. We will not be returning.

I ordered the bbq ribs. Unfortunately, it was extremely dry and lacked flavor. Most of all, you mostly get bones The waitress who served us was real nice and professional. It’s unfortunate that the quality of their food was so awful.
