    Venue was very nice. Food service from the kitchen was very slow. We waited almost an hour past our appetizers for the main dish to arrive. Mains were adequate but not nearly good enough for the price paid. If you go, be prepared to spend.

    The ambiance and decor are beautiful! The service was top notch, however I do think the food was pricey. It is certainly a place I would recommend for a special occasion or date night. Cocktails were enjoyable and well made.

    My friend and I tried Smoked for the first time for lunch. Everyone was outgoing, professional, and positive. We were taken on a tour of the restaurant. Smoked is absolutely a beautiful, well planned, restaurant offering comfortable dining in various indoor and outdoor settings. Perfect for large parties or special events! We had the Brussel sprouts as an appetizer and were absolutely wonderful. We shared the hamburger and brisket sandwich plates. The hamburger was to die for because it just melted in your mouth. Disappointed with the brisket. The taste was good but I think the brisket should be slice much thinner utilizing the same amount on the sand which. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

    We tried Smoked for brunch to celebrate daughter’s 21st birthday. It is a beautiful restaurant and what a fabulous bar! While the ambience and service was top notch, the food was underwhelming. I was excited to get the award winning shrimp and grits, a cliche I generally pass up at other restaurants; however, for brunch and with the mention of Adluh grits, I took the bait and had high hopes. Sad to say, it was bland and basic and unappealingly blue. The high price was a bit insulting. I will say that the brunch burger was a hit for others in my party, the fries being precious in their own right. Also, the Brie Board as a starter was well appointed and enjoyed by all. I’d like to go back and try the dinner menu.

    This was our first visit to Smoked. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. I had the catch of the day, which was fantastic. My husband had steak, which he said wasn't necessarily worth the price, but still well cooked. We had a very nice time and would return.

    We took our son and his friends for college graduation. Amelia, our server, was wonderful. She made great suggestions and was on point. The food was amazing! There was a large, loud, party somewhere in the back. That plus the wonderful ensemble made the place very loud.

    I am not sure I would return or recommend this restaurant. I think I need a second visit to make a final decision. There were high points and low points — all of which are off set by price and expectation. The establishment was suggested as a ‘must’ place to visit. I think there are other options that rival more for your attention. Quick synapsis: we visited the bar pre-dinner, ordered oysters, ordered different dishes, ordered a few wines, and tried their micro brewery beer. The bar — we really enjoyed the experience pre-dinner. The drinks were well prepared and the options were large. We really enjoyed the bar staff and their attentiveness! Unfortunately, that same level of service did not extend to the hostesses or waitress. Dinner — the hostesses we’re lack luster. I never felt welcomed and they were unemotional. Not a good first impression. Unfortunately, this extended to the waitress. While she was competently doing here job, there was very little emotion or excitement. It was perfunctory. Quite the let down. The same attitude extended to the food. We thoroughly enjoyed the oysters and wine, which set a good tone to start. But, the main dishes were lackluster. We had the duck, a few different steaks, and extra sides—all of which were generally over cooked and no better than what could be expected from an average chain restaurant. I found myself trying to share food and hyping certain aspects to make up for weaknesses. This was hard for me given I was ‘hosting’ the party. I wanted the ambience and individual food to speak for itself. Instead I felt like I had to make up for weaknesses. Last concern is small. Day before the dinner reservation I used the app to ask the restaurant if they could extend our 4 person reservation to 6. Unfortunately, they said no, but, i really appreciated they called personally and I understood the constraints of the evening. But, they sat us at a 6 person table and the room was not full??!!

    Went there for Christmas Eve. Good atmosphere and the server was decent. I ordered the lamb and it was inedible. It was pretty much all char and bone. Not much edible meat. From what I saw the steaks looked good so if I were to attempt this place again that’s what I would try.

    You're paying for an idea of upscale, which the environment and staff is, but $45 for 3 1inch pieces of meat is a little dumb as was my $23 blue cheese salad which was 2 full romaine leaves folded with the blue cheese and nuts inside. The food is good, but not unusual from another restaurant. Spend money on drinks and conversation.

    We had a reservation for a business meal at 7pm. We didn’t get seated until 8pm. I expect better. Probably won’t go back with important guests in the future because of the unreliability. Also when we checked in they said it would be a few minutes late. They did nothing to make up for the problem.

    This was not our first time dining at Smoked, but could possibly be the last time. Could not order a glass of Prosecco, only a bottle. We opted for a glass of Champagne each, but the Champagne was served in red wine goblets. We each ordered a six ounce filet, but they only had one six ounce filet left, so we opted for the halibut and a lobster tail. We had to wait on the halibut as they said it “cracked?” when plated, so they had to cook a new one. The lobster had cooled by the time our food was delivered to the table. Had to ask for butter and lemon for the lobster and only received lemon slices. Also, we had to ask for knives after the initial knife placings were removed. Our server was distant and gave the impression these shortcomings were customary. We usually share a dessert but could not take a chance on another disappointment. Being the holiday season, we reluctantly left a 22% gratuity. We left feeling as though we had been in a sports bar atmosphere. Very disappointed.
