    There were 8 of us out for a birthday dinner and drinks. Our server was great. She was very professional, had great recall and was upbeat throughout our evening out. We had burnt ends, riblets, and Brussels sprouts as an appetizer. All amazing! The burnt ends fell apart so nicely! I saw my family devour Mac and cheese, handheld sandwiches, fries, and tomato bisque. We are beer and wine drinkers for the most part, but the few cocktails we ordered looked amazing and were consumed quickly! Cozy atmosphere and quiet. Planning on returning on a night that I am not driving to have one of the many Old Fashions on the menu !

    Everything was really good. We just ended up not getting our brisket which worked out because we ordered so much food. Music was good, our waitress was so nice. But overall would highly recommend.

    Food was terrible. The riblets were bland and overcooked, I had ordered jalapeño mac n cheese and received regular plain mac n cheese… cornbread muffin as cold. Server agreed that the food was definitely sub par - I sent it back and she did not charge me.

    We tried the smoked brisket, chicken, back ribs and andouille sausage. All were very good. In fact, the food was a lot better than the last time we ate there. The venue is extremely crowded and noisy. Not a place to go if you want to enjoy conversation.

    Dinner was amazing! Our server was very sweet, but unfortunately forgot 2 of our sauces, only 1 i bothered to ask again for, and seemed distracted talking to staff who were off shift. Would have liked her to check in on us a few more times!

    We found this place for new years by chance. Was an overall decent place. Most of the meal was amazing. Brisket, fries. Hose made pickles and pecan pie. Could have been better. But avoid the beef ribs. You can’t even chew them. Then sauce was so good though you really wanted to eat them. And for price this place is totally worth going amazing. Just done so the ribs

    Food Pretty good Beef brisket fell apart Pull pork was tender and flavourful Andouille sausage was over done and dry would not recommend. They give you a small sauce per item which is not enough. Brought to you in a small plastic container 2/3 full. Fill it up a least. Potato salad and brussel sprouts were very good. Portions are plenty big enough. Atmosphere Poor lighting as hard to tell what you are eating sometimes. We sat at a table that was bench on one side and stool on other. Would be nice to sit in a chair with a back for the money you spend. Feels more like a bar not a restaurant. Made reservation and was seated 15 minutes late. New Years, I get it but that’s why we made a reservation. Overall, will repeat.

    Smoke is an amazing place for meat lovers! The manager/owner as well as the serving staff are friendly and professional. We will be back again and again. Just moments away from Rogers makes for a great choice before any event. Parking is available along the street as well as in the parking lot on the next block. Great place!!

    My husband & I were heading to a concert at Rogers & wanted to grab a bite to eat before we went so we picked smoke on a whim as we’d never been before or heard about it. We love all things smoked meat & the food did not disappoint. It’s got a cool bar/saloon atmosphere. Our waitress was really great too. If you’re in the downtown area & love a good smokehouse/bbq joint check this place out. P.S. the brussel sprouts with dill sauce are freakin amazing & for a starter it was a huge dish. Enjoy!!

    This place is more like a bar that serves food. Likely great if you are into that or about to hit an Oilers games, but for any sort of calm dinner, it's too loud.

    Attended before a hockey game. The service was SLOW. We didn’t get drinks for about a half hour. The waitress took our drink order twice because she forgot what we ordered and then waited about 20 minutes before coming back and asking again. The food took forever and tables who came and ordered after us got their food before us. We ended up being late to the game even though we had almost 2 hours.

    I brought my business clients down before the Oilers game and they were blown away. We did family style dinner with the Pulled pork, chicken wings, ribs and brisket and it was all done up to perfection. DO NOT SLEEP ON THE SIDES, mac n cheese, potato salad and the fries are all absolutely amazing. Great cocktails that get lit on fire at the table. What more could you ask for. Cannot recommend this place enough.

    First time there, the atmosphere was excellent, good vibes; however, the music was too loud, couldn’t have a conversation. The music playlist was great, just too loud. The wings were fantastic and the ribs as well. The beer battered French fries were a HUGE hit with everyone at the table. We really wanted to try the potato salad but they ran out along with a lot of other dishes and sides. The white meant chicken was extremely dried out and inedible. Overall a fair experience, I would go back if the music would be lowered.

    Smoke has a super cool vibe, I want to say it’s like a speakeasy mixed with a 1920s bar mixed with the most delicious smoked meat you’ve ever had. Meat is ordered à la carte, and then you can add sides. The sides are great portions and even the small could be shared. I highly recommend the jalapeño mac & cheese. They also have unique and delicious cocktails. My only disappointment was the service was a bit slow.

    It took 1.5 hours to get our food. We spoke to the manager and found out that the server forgot to put in our order. When it finally came it definitely was not worth the wait. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Had tickets to oilers game that started at 5 pm with potential clients. We arrived a little after our reservation at 3:30. We ordered our food and drinks around 4 pm. We never received our food, and our waitress just disappeared. Then after the manager realized what happened he tried to bring our food at 4:50 10 minutes before the puck drop. If you have a smokehouse in the ice district maybe pay attention to the customers that have tickets to the game. I will never return and never recommend any of my friends or customers to eat at smoke. Not only was this embarrassing and unprofessional by Smoke it made me look bad I front of my customers that I brought

    Smoke’s traditional BBQ menu is well designed for those of us who love a good brisket, ribs, burnt ends, or pulled pork. The sides are large and more than enough to share. Would definitely recommend Smoke.

    We have eaten here many times and have had a great experience. This time around, our server was quite rude and almost never there. We tried to flag her down a few times (to get serving utensils for our food, to order more food and drinks, to get the bill etc), and she would always rush past our table. The music is usually loud here, so I expect that, but there was a Christmas party going on in the bar area and they were so loud that we had to pause our conversations while they yelled and cheered. It was uncomfortable, and we couldn't enjoy the music or each other's conversation due to it. At the end of the evening, we had to go to the bar to find someone to let us pay because our server disappeared. She finally came back to us after we requested some assistance. I really enjoyed this restaurant when it opened, but I think I will give it a break for a while.

    Service was quite slow. Group of about 15 guys came in and were extremely loud, singing songs at the top of there lungs and seemed to get service faster than the other tables that had been there for over an hour already. Sat down at 6pm and ordered by 6:30ish. Didnt recieve food until 7:30pm. Drinks were quite slow to come out as well especially once the big group came in and sat at the bar across from us. There was a concert that evening that we all had to get to and thought 2 hrs should have been plenty of time. Because of the special event I understand they were probably busier than they thought so I will attemp to go again and hopefully it was a one off experience. All of that said the food was excellent and Im optimistic that my next experience will be better
