    Food is average at best. Large outdoor patio some covered some uncovered. Covered area is noisy. Lots of room for children to run. Staff was excellent. I had the St Louis style bbq ribs. At $31 I would have expected better quality. The meat was dry and tough.

    I was excited about the venue especially since there were heaters on it was cold outside and we were sat on the patio. I was disappointed when we were sat the VERY CORNER of the patio that had NO HEATER and it was extremely cold. It was hard to enjoy the ambience due to the temperature. We had been told by the server (who was truly so nice and had great recommendations) we could ask the hostess to be moved. But the hostess said there were reservations that had other seats covered. I had no control over which table I chose on this app, so it was frustrating to be sat in the corner when I would have chosen near the heaters. The food was mediocre and the drinks were good. It would’ve been a better experience if we had been sat in a better location and if the server checked in more frequently (we had wanted condiments for over 15 minutes but she was too busy with other customers).

    Brisket was really good and the mash potatoes. The mac and cheese was a bit too watery in consistency but tasted pretty good. Drinks were fine. Loved the decor and ambiance of the place and def. a cute spot.

    We randomly ended up here for dinner after spending the evening at the Arboretum. What a gem of a restaurant! The staff was awesome, service was quick, love the atmosphere both inside and outside, and the food was AMAZING! Even my pickiest eaters enjoyed it. The waiter overheard my younger daughter mentioning to me that she should have chose M&C as her side instead of fries (after seeing her siblings plates) and a few minutes later, he had brought her some. So sweet and truly appreciated! It made her day!

    Food was good, we were sat and had drinks quickly placed our order and forgotten about, after 45 minutes I found an employee to ask about our food, another 20 minutes later it was delivered. We had people that were sat way after us ordered and had their food before we had ours. There was no trying of the waitress or staff to reconcile what had happened

    We had a reservation for 530 and were sat at our table. We then waited 15 minutes to be approached by one of the numerous waiters walking around before we asked the hostess about who would be our waiter. We then waited another 10 minutes (again with numerous waiters walking past us) before our waitress finally came by the take our drink order.

    Outstanding meal for our family! The food, service and atmosphere (including the amazing musician providing the live music) was all AWESOME! We will definitely be back. I wish we lived closer so we could go regularly, and I wish we could have Antonio J. as our waiter for every meal! Thanks for a wonderful evening, Smoky Rose!

    Dinner and atmosphere were good as usual. Waitress must have known she was getting the automatic tip (party of 8)…because she basically never came to the table. We had to get up for salt and pepper and our drinks stayed empty. Disappointing that you can’t substitute sides. Restaurant would have made more money if they’d let me trade slaw for green beans. Instead I ordered something significantly less so I didn’t have to have slaw. That alone may lead me to try something different for special occasions.

    My boyfriend and I had a great experience. The ambience outside was incredible. Our service was great. We went just for appetizers and the server recommended we also get the burnt ends so kudos to him for a great up-sale because they were delicious. We kept saying this will be our new go to restaurant. Can’t wait to come back.

    We love Smoky Rose. We have never had a bad experience there. The food is amazing. There is a good variety of options for everyone. The drink menu is great, too. We love being able to sit outside and enjoy a meal, and especially love it on weekends when they provide entertainment. We highly recommend Smoky Rose!
