    We dined at the Smokehouse for out anniversary and it was wonderful experience from beginning to end. Our table was set with a personalized menu congratulating us on our occasion. We were presented with a delicious trio of small bites while we made our selections for our meal and glasses of champagne when we selected the wine pairing. A delicious steak tartar amuse buche arrived while we awaited our first course. Every course was superb. We had the braised bison and rockfish for our entrees and both were melt in your mouth delicious. The atmosphere got a bit loud as our evening progressed as other diners enjoyed their meals. One of us is sensitive to noise so it detracted a bit but by our dessert course it was quieter and we left on a positive note with truffles to go and our souvenir menus. While the experience is expensive it is worth it for a special occasion.

    Top notch! Fabulous food, drink and service. Value priced. Incredible antiques. Stately houses and gorgeous grounds. Quaint pub inside the mansion. A perfect place for a wedding... all the family and guests could stay on the grounds, beautiful rooms in the surrounding houses, carriage house etc, something like 40 rooms. Pool, tennis court, volleyball, croquet court, reception hall...what more could you want? Wonderful stay. Very quiet. Restful. A++

    We thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at The Antrim! We have gone there many times over the years. This visit was just a notch below what we have come to expect. The food was good, but not as spectacular as in the past. Some of it felt commercially made, not freshly made, e.g. the appetizers and the mushroom sauce. And the restaurant's decor needs some freshening up--the ficus trees in the corners are very dated and out of place! And for some reason, the large dining room wasn't utilized on the night we visited, and the restaurant felt very overcrowded. Now on to the positive portion of the review: Our server Jordan was excellent and very attentive. Our mixed drinks and wine were delicious. The piano player was a delight as always! The multi course dinner is such a good value, and I love not having to travel to Baltimore or DC for a fine dining experience.

    We really enjoyed dinner here last night. It is very high in ambience and atmosphere, well laid out and served by a professional crew of engaging servers. The food is excellent, and the variety is original and always superb. We had the accompanying wine flights and the choices were exemplary. Imagine a smooth Assirtyko with a scrumptious bibb lettuce salad and a stunning cab with filet of beef. The swordfish looked great, but we were on a meat kick. I had braised bison unfortunately. It was the one down experience of the evening served in a glob of heavy gravy also over- salted. I chose it. there were many tasty alternatives so do not be put off but beware. Desserts are superb and everything is served appropriately sized plates. Oh yes, appetizers are fine and before they are served Smokehouse served two rounds of amuses, each delicious and different. We love this place and have eaten here months ago. It is consistently excellent and worth the trip to Antrim 1844.

    Always a treat to dine at The Smokehouse. It was worth it to arrive a bit early and take a stroll through the gardens as the roses were in full bloom and gorgeous! The atmosphere in the Smokehouse is very romantic. We dined in the fireplace room with the brick floor - my favorite. Service was impeccable and their wine list is so large that I left the choice to the sommelier. Describing what I preferred, they did not disappoint. The food was delicious as always and you certainly don't leave hungry. Next time I will be back on a weekend so that we can enjoy the piano entertainment too.

    Service was fantastic, but the food was subpar, especially for the experience offered with 6 courses and wine pairings. The chicken pate was not fresh. The bread that came the dish was cold, the cubed jelly was too firm to spread on the bread with the pate, and the pate was extremely bland. Our displeasure was conveyed to the waitress to notify the kitchen. The beets were delicious. The salad was fine, but extremely basic with primarily lettuce and some goat cheese, and not worth taking up 1 of 6 dishes for this expensive of a meal. The braised bison was very good, but bison should be served close to medium rare, and this was well done and dry. The filet was delicious and perfectly cooked, but the side potatoes were completely burnt and inedible. Dessert was surprisingly awful. We both ordered the chocolate peanut butter ball. The chocolate shell coating was so firm that it was nearly impossible to crack open without smashing it with the back of a fork. The plate was decorated with a spread of chocolate underneath the ball. The chocolate spread was completely hardened and was inedible. Overall, these dishes, aside from the main entrees, felt like they were pre-cooked, refrigerated/frozen, and reheated before being served. The wine pairings were not great and the wine did not seem to justify the price, and we very much enjoy fine wine. Unfortunately, we were charged in full for the meal despite issues with the chicken pate dish. For the price and experience offered, the meal should have been a lot better and presentation should have been better. The experience is similar to Charleston Restaurant in Baltimore, but the quality of dishes could not be further apart. We hoped this would be a phenomenal meal and first experience here, but was not the case. Would not return. The braised

    The food was excellent. I ordered the Filet Mignon and my husband ordered the Grilled & Braised Bison. The Bison was off the charts delicious. It was very tender and had the texture and taste of short ribs. This was the best meal we've had there.

    We have been to the Smokehouse Restaurant several times and it is always an enjoyable experience. We do miss the way it used to be done with everyone waiting to be seated but understandably it had to change due to COVID. My vegan meal was excellent and my companions regular menu items were delicious as well. Although a bit pricey, it is worth the cost for an extra special occasion.

    This is an excellent restaurant. The staff was awesome. The manager who is in charge of their expansive wine list was very helpful in choosing a beautiful bottle of wine. The multi course meal had many good options and my wife and I chose different items so we could share and they were all very good. The manager gave us a nice tour of the wine cellar after dinner. It’s not cheap but the value is very good for what you get.

    Overall, an excellent experience as always! Nice work by the entire staff! One minor nit (pet peeve), that has nothing to do with the Smokehouse restaurant. Please silence your cell phones when going out to a very nice dinner. The table next to us spent the night responding to various "pings" on their phones. Phew... got that off my chest... I sound like an old man.
