We treated ourselves to The Smoke House after some volunteer work. We arrived in advance for our intended reservation and they were very nice about taking us a bit early. The garlic cheese bread 100% lives up to the hype. I had the prime rib and my husband the New York steak / each with the shoestring fries. Our cleaned plates with not morsel left on either indicate how much we enjoyed. Our apple pie and lava cake dessert selections were heavenly. The service from beginning to end was very attentive - just enough to make sure you were taken care of but not intrusive. We will certainly return. :)

We brought our family to the Smokehouse including our 10 and 12 year old boys. The server was so much fun and really engaged our boys and got them laughing. The music was quality and not too loud...you could still talk with each other while eating. Overall, we had such a lovely time.

The Smoke House is back to what it always was - a place where people can enjoy great food (especially beef) in a studio hangout atmosphere. Love the traditional atmosphere, the kitschy movie posters, celebrity photos and drawings.

This is what a real restaurant is all about. A good meal; a place to share conversation with friends. Our celebration was made even more special because of the great service we received from the wait staff.

Service was great. Food, not so much. I had a NY Strip. I ordered it medium. It was completely overdone. The veggies were cold. I go here quite frequently, and usually it is okay. My friend ordered crab stuffed salmon and the plate was beautiful!

We love the Smokehouse and are regular customers. Last night we ordered rack of lamb which has gone up in price. It arrived and the first 2 bones were good however, from the third bone to the 7th the Lamb was so OVER salted we couldnt eat it! We told our server and instead of offering another replacement dish, she issued a $4,00 credit to a $48.00 dish! It was insulting to say the least. She didnt even offer dessert. We were very unhappy with our meal last night. Next time we will ask to sample the lamb prior to ordering! I suggest you do the same.

Overall, a great experience. We started with a half-order of the garlic cheese bread, which was scrumptious. I had a turkey burger which was very good, with a side of fresh cut fruit which was sweet and delicious, at its peak of ripeness. My friend had a salad with creamy garlic dressing, which he said was very good. (Needed more dressing, but our server was happy to bring more.) The only disappointment was that my friend's hamburger was overcooked. (He ordered it medium rare and it was overdone, but he didn't feel like sending it back, so we didn't say anything. The previous week, he got a hamburger at the Smoke House and said it was one of the best hamburgers he's ever had, so I'm hoping this was a fluke.) I got warm apple pie a la mode for dessert which was heavenly, and my friend got Boston cream pie, which he said was very good. Our server was very nice and attentive, and all the staff were friendly and efficient. We had a nice private booth. I'm looking forward to returning.

Disappointed this year. Steaks came out lukewarm. Waited 35 mins before anyone asked us for drink order little alone food order. Clearly understaffed. Should have limited diners so servers could handle it. Food was great except serves so late it had gotten cold. Just not enough help.

I’ve been her many times since I was a kid. Always pretty solid.
I brought my nephew the other night. We had the best server! His name was Christopher. He may have been the best server I’ve had anywhere. I ordered the chicken piccata. The chicken was cooked perfectly. I also had a vodka martini which came with a side car. Super tasty. My nephew had a steak and enjoyed it.
Great overall experience.

Was very disappointed in the porterhouse steak. It was about 1/4 to a 1/2” thick. Reminded me of a breakfast steak at Norms. Drinks were very weak pours. Not what we were used to pre-Covid. Also, no pre 6 pm discount. Despite all, service was excellent.

This is our go to place. We’ve always taken my mother here and will continue to do.
Service from valet to table is always been exceptional.
COVID practice was done as other diners were seated far from our seats.
Food was excellent.

Been here a couple times now and always enjoyed my visit. This time my reservation was for NYE and reserved via the resteraunt website which directed me to Open Table. Open Table app reflected a confirmed reservation. Upon arriving at the resteraunt, they didn't have my reservation, but they were kind enough to verify via Open Table that I did have a reservation. They seated us plretty close to our reservation time. Great atmosphere with the history of the place. Food was good, though the steak could have used a little seasoning, but cooked just as we liked for tenderness.

Always enjoy Smoke House. However, food was served barely warm and came out quickly which seems like it was prepared ahead of time . Not a particularly good experience this time.

I didn’t know they were going to have a special pricing menu for New Year’s Eve. It was about 20% more than regular prices for basically the same thing. I will never do that again. Otherwise it was an excellent meal in every way. And the garlic bread is always delicious.
