    The dinner at The Smokehouse in Burbank was an absolute delight. The cozy ambiance, attentive service, and, most importantly, the mouthwatering barbecue dishes exceeded my expectations. Each bite was a flavorful journey, and the welcoming atmosphere made the overall experience memorable. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a top-notch dining experience

    I am a frequent Smoke House diner, but this time our evening failed to live up to expectations. First, the timing of our courses was terrible - this is a big NO NO for any restaurant. Our main courses arrived when we were only halfway through our salads. The waiter sheepishly apologized and offered to take the entrees back to keep them warm, but when I suggested that the entrees would be dry by then, he nodded and shrugged. So we took our entrees and pushed our salad plates to the side. This is just unacceptable. I had a seafood brochette which I usually order and love, and while the portion was fine, the shrimp were undercooked. My friend’s pork chop was only “okay”. Not sure if there is an inexperienced or overwhelmed (or both) chef in the kitchen now, but it was not a good evening. The poor timing of courses is one of my big bugaboos and truly annoys me. This should not happen - EVER!

    We do love going to the Smokehouse for the food and atmosphere. However, service is usually not very good. The sisters either rush you to order right away and then you don’t see them for most of the meal. Maybe they are stretched too thin.

    Celebrated 3 ladies birthday dinner ..started with delicious clam chowder, famous garlic bread... rib eye, scampi & seafood brochette... saved room for chocolate lava cake with icecream & fresh berries... yes we did bring home generous portions of our dinners. * Valet parking attendants are very courteous & attentive, also welcoming host/hostesses...our waiter and his assistant provided prompt and friendly service. Smoke House has been our favorite go to place for special lunch, dinner & celebrations for more than 40 years. Very good value, fresh, excellent choices.

    Our meals were not up to the usual quality. The server did not bring me the right side I had asked for. Servers changed during our service without any mention. The side vegetables were extremely tough and under cooked, if cooked at all. It wasn't the usual great food we have had there before. Disappointing.

    We love this place. The service is really going downhill. They got some cranky little crabapples in this joint. The waitress I thought was going to get in a fistfight with the young lady I brought. But perhaps this is a sign of the times. Labor is restive and Los Angeles is in a state of self-conscious disintegration.

    As always the Smoke House was fabulous. So glad their Sunday Brunch is back. The oysters were superb, crab legs sweet & juicy, Shrimp Civeche perfect blend of spices, crab cakes best I've had, my boyfriend said the ham from the carving station was cooked perfectly & of course the garlic bread was amazing.
