We made reservations for a busy Saturday evening & were seated the moment we arrived. Server was fantastic: attitude & attentiveness was just right! Food was delish and portions a bit big, but who REALLY wants desert anyways lol.
Definitely recommend to anyone. Very positive experience.

Not only are the BBQ meats delicious, but all the sides are equally well-prepared. They take a lot of pride in the quality of their food. Friendly service, fair prices and large portions.

My son and I got to the restaurant at 8PM on a Saturday night and were informed at the door that they were out of ribs. OUT OF RIBS!!! That's like McDonalds telling you that they are out of beef! Are they new?

We decided to eat there anyway. The dining room makes a Tim Horton's look luxurious. It's really nothing to look at - no ambiance or character whatsoever. The emergency room at Simcoe General has more character.

Our waitress came by and took our drink order (beer and a diet coke) and we asked for an order of burnt ends as well. She brought us a beer (right one too!) and a Sprite, then came by a couple of minutes later and realized that she brought the wrong pop. We never got the burnt ends.

For dinner, my son ordered some wings (he REALLY wanted ribs) which he said were good. Cole slaw was also good but the fries were cold. I ordered a mixed plate of pulled pork, brisket and a chicken breast (instead of RIBS!). The pulled pork was tasty but too heavily sauced - you couldn't really taste the meat. Same goes for the brisket - it came with too much sauce. The brisket was also a bit over cooked. Really well cooked brisket should be tender but not fall apart. This one fell apart to easily. Still it was tasty, just not great. As for the chicken breast, it was just a chicken breast with a little bbq sauce smeared on top. Nothing special. My fries were also cold.

Sad to say, but I would not go back here - it offers very little and was a bit expensive to boot.

Server was great but the food wasn't great. Ordered ribs and it took a long time to get them. Once I got them, they were cold. Had burnt ends Too, they were mushy and tasted like they had been just reheated in the slow cooker. It was a busy evening but was left disappointed for the cost.

We came for a quick bite on New Year's Eve and the service was fast and friendly. The ribs and brisket tasted great as always. We both had the smoked spicy caesar. Too bad they were out of the apple crumble, it's our favorite dessert.

There are many places to eat in Collingwood but we keep going back to the Smoke. They accommodate food allergies very well and overall the food is amazing! WE have not had a bad meal once since going for the first time a couple of years ago!

Made the trip to “The Smoke” specifically for the smoked prime rib offered EVERY Sunday according to their website. Only to find out that they no longer offer that. However , they don’t bother to take that off their website. Draw in people with menu items you no longer offer. Nice!
As for the rest of the night. We stay and ordered anyway. Had the brisket nachos as a shared appetizer. They should of been called the smoked baked bean nachos. Almost no brisket, mostly beans. The main entree was brisket. Fries overcooked and Mac and cheese was a tiny ramekin half full. 6oz of brisket and I ate 3 oz.
We’d be suprized if this place was open next winter. No need for reservations only three other tables were used at 7 pm.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME

First time at The Smoke and we all loved it.
From Sarnia, staying at Cranberry and met friends from Muskoka there.
Was recommended from family in Barrie. Everyone found something we liked on menu.
We said we will definitely be returning on our next visit to Collingwood.

I have been going to the smoke since it opened and have always enjoyed the food. The main disappointment this time was the change in menu costs. I know costs always go up but one main hit was the increase in " premium " side dishes. We always used to get the sweet potato fries and the smoked Mac and cheese. They now charge an extra $ 1.99 per premium side dishes so if you get a quarter chicken with these two side dishes it is now about $ 20.00. The food is still great but the cost increases are a bit frustrating.

Excellent smoked BBQ. I had the smoked wings and 1/2 rack of ribs. Wings were really delicious, ribs were served "dry" as requested, but were very juicy. Six tasty sauces to try on your ribs. Great spot for lunch or dinner. Weekday specials are worth checking out.

The chicken was missed when meal was brought to our table. When it did arrive it was really dry and overloaded with sauce. The ribs were also a bit dry and did not come off the bone as easily as it should.

The atmosphere is fun, service was attentive, and the food was great - the sauces are delicious! Our only negative was the ribs - they were a bit dry and hard. Everything else we had (corn bread, pulled pork, chicken and fries) was delicious and high quality. Overall we'd definitely recommend this place for good smokehouse food.

Had a great time. Our server made our day!!! Food was great, only thing I didn't like were the sweet potato fries. Also never sit a culinary manager beside the expo window. We saw 2 plates sit for almost 20 minutes and then they were taken to the table. I think the manager intervened because they came back pretty quick which I thought was great. We will be back for sure

Again food was excellent and the gluten free options are plentiful and well marked. They will even bring over a nutrional/information menu for any allergies or concerns. It lists what should be avoided according to your specific concern.
