Always a favorite with our family and this dining experience didn’t disappoint. They’ve managed to create a cozy environment outside in the old valet pull-up area for pandemic seating and the food was the old favorite. Fresh food, attentive service and an all around great experience.

Our server s brooks was cold as ice in personality! He didn’t attend to us except to take our food order. When he placed the bill on the table he had not offered dessert or coffee. We were celebrating my mother’s 89th birthday! The busboy George saved the day by taking great care of us. I left a 15% tip for s brooks but he deserved zero tip. Our family has been going to the Smokehouse forever, so disappointed

First time eating on the patio. It was safe, pleasant but could’ve been cleaner. It was also cold.
All in all it was a good experience.
We’d go back.

Love this place many times before. Unfortunately, food this night was very inconsistent. Fish in the fish & chips entree was way over cooked, cold, dry fish inside and completely inedible. Such a disappointment on what was meant to be an impressive client dinner.

Best meal we're had in years. Loved how quiet the dining room was during out visit. Food was great. Have had less than good experiences in the past but this was the best visit ever. Service was excellent.

Our first visit back after both shots, there is a nice outdoor area but we dined indoors at a red booth. They skip every other one and center tables were removed so that diners are not near other booths. There were five of us, two were newbies and we were all thrilled with the super size order of garlic cheese bread! Entrees included perfectly cooked steaks and salmons. Same fabulous cocktail with a generous sidecar... Please come back to the Smoke House-- it's super safe and if anything, the food got even better! Can't wait to go back.

Very nice experience at this old time favorite. My Fish and Chips was very good, but I didn't like the cold slaw that came with it. My wife liked her BBQ ribs. They have excellent garlic cheese bread which we always order. The service was fine and the ambiance was great eating inside again!

Our first time at The Smoke House and we will definitely go back. The staff is very friendly and professional. Food & cocktails are great. Felt nice to be out and about. If Covid protocols are important to you, it seems that all safety measures were in place. Plenty of distance and clean.

The food is just not good. I had a half BBQ chicken that had been barely warmed up and far from fresh. The corn on the cob was chewy and cold. Bu the baked potato was good!

Informal industry lunch. Honestly, it was just great to be out to lunch with colleagues after such a long shutdown. Didn’t realize just how much I missed the cheese bread.

The Smoke House remains a very special place, not just for the sentiment, but the food and service. This is the place for a fine steak, a good drink and great service. And their unique and wonderful cheese bread. Sad not to see the faces of some “veteran” staff members but everyone is working hard to get things back to normal.

I took my family here to celebrate my nephews graduation. We made reservations so we had no wait at all. The food was spectacular, our waiter was very attentive, and the ambience was great. We were lucky enough to be seated right next to a beautiful fireplace.

Great food as usual. Wonderful ribs and excellent fries.The filet was perfection as well as the Chateaubriand for two! And they serve the best Cosmopolitan in the city. Impeccable service from Mimi and Robert from the U.K.,who truly should be a server also!

It’s old. Has old Hollywood charm. We go for the history. The price is comparable but not exceptional. Cheese bread is good though a little dry. Covid dining plans screwed it up but what the heck we are all in this together.

The best cheese bread anyway. Didn’t see any movie stars, but it was on a Sunday, so maybe they were all home. Always delicious food even during these COVID times. A classic restaurant from yesteryear that hasn’t changed in quality and ambiance.

The Smoke House outside dining is very nice. I have been coming to the Smoke House for years. Sometimes it can be hit and miss. But I hadn't been in a long time--pre-CoVid. I had heard there was new management. If so maybe the new management is responsible for delicious food and terrific service. One dining partner ordered the bone in ribeye and he was very pleased as was I with my hamburger steak.
