The Smokehouse has been a tradition for my family since the 1960s. It never fails to create a memorable dining experience!

Had a very enjoyable business lunch at The Smoke House.
As always, the service was terrific.
The food was solidly dependable traditional fare.
And, the garlic/cheese toast was as spectacular as ever.

The beef dip was very good and the slaw, super fresh. Someone had the pulled pork and it was DELICIOUS. Desserts wonderful. We enjoyed our birthday lunch. Look forward to coming back.

Although I live in Northern California, I still make an occasional visit to the Smoke House, an old family favorite. I was there on Sunday evening to celebrate my sister's birthday. It was very rewarding to find the great ambiance and excellent food in place after all these years.

Service was mediocre at best and the food was just acceptable. If I wanted to go to a restaurant for their garlic bread, this is the place. The rest of the food was just meh!

I planned our evening to arrive exactly 45 minutes before the show began so that we had some "wiggle room" for wait time, but could still enjoy a drink beforehand. After the hippie-dude host finished being rude to an older couple in front of me, he proceeded to tell me that a) I didn't have a reservation, and b) even if I did, it didn't matter. Funny, another host recognized my name, so I'm sure they saw my rezzie. I managed to self-seat my 82-year old mother, and enjoyed the show with over-priced beverages...and at least the crowd was friendly! The next day, I received an OpenTable email saying that the restaurant had canceled my reservation. I don't know why they even bother with your service if they can't manage it.

The food is consistently wonderful. We have never had a bad or even mediocre meal here. For a steak house to ALWAYS prepare your steak perfectly is quite remarkable.
I personally am a fan of the baby back ribs which, again, are always perfectly done and we have been going to this restaurant for over 40 years. The portions are always generous so that even if initially it is a bit expensive, there is always a second meal in my take-home bag which makes a fabulous meal a real bargain.

Luncheon Burger special is ok but not as good as regular Burger on menu. Special runs through month of March and for $14 a good value for those not familiar with the usual choice, potato salad delicious like my grandmother use to make.

Been there a few times and everything was good. This last visit was a big disappointment. I had a pork chop that was good. My girlfriend, her sister and my brother all had different cuts of steak. None of them enjoyed it. My brother told the waiter to tell the manager he did not like his steak because it was fatty and had to many veins. The manager told the waiter to tell my brother he could not do anything because he ate most of it. He was not asking the manager to do anything, he just wanted to let him know. If the manager had any class he would have come over himself and apologized.

Service was very good and our reservation got us seated immediately even though it was a busy Saturday. Problem I keep having is every time I order the Prime Rib (larger cut) done RARE it always comes medium rare & keeps cooking at the table. (3+ times plus my date's too) This last time i ordered "MOO BLUE RARE" and still the same situation. Meat "looks" rare on the top but is actually almost "medium" on the bottom part against the plate. The meat is still tasty but overdone to my liking. Any leftovers the next day are automatically served "well done". The onion soup, garlic bread & desserts are a plus. Coffee cups are too small to sate the delicious dessert. Must've had 4 -5 refills, but 2 sips... and done. More like espresso cups.
So... all in all after several visits over the years, if I return it sure won't be for the Prime Rib.

We have been to the Smoke House many, many times and usually love our experience. It was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and our plans were last minute, but we did make a reservation. I requested a romantic table for our anniversary and marked the occasion on the fill in form. When we arrived we were offered a table next to the back end of the bar where the bus tub is. We asked to be moved and were put in a booth. The waiter took our drink order. Then he came back and took our food order. We did not have drinks yet. I ordered the prime rib and the waiter said he would bring me the prime rib special as it was the exact same thing. Our salads came and we had to remind the waiter about our drinks. The waiter offered ground pepper for our salads, to which we said yes, but he never returned with it. My prime rib arrived. It was so fatty it was difficult to cut and impossible to eat. I guess the special is where they get rid of less desirable cuts. My husband pointed it out to the waiter who graciously took it away and really swiftly brought me an acceptable meal. It was Monday night, so maybe this is not the "A" team on the floor or in the kitchen.
Overall, yes, we will definitely be back. The food is typically fabulous as is the service. I hate to give them a lower mark, but there is obviously something to be fixed.

I've been coming here since I was a kid in the 70s for regular dinner and also special events (80th birthday, wedding receptions, etc.). The food is always great and the staff are wonderful.
