Food and service were good. Restaurant knew how many in the party in advance. Food was better than the last time I was there about 2 years before this. Would like to go again to check on quality of what was previously up-and-down for service and food.

On our visit to Hubbard Lake earlier this summer (late June) we ate at Smokeys for three different meals. Not only were their wings (smoked then fried) the best I have ever had, all three of us had great food with everything we ordered. They have a huge selection of items (wings, burgers, pizza, sandwiches, BBQ, ect.) which are all... More

I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal there. Even on a harried Labor Day weekend. The staff is friendly, efficient.

We average at least once a week at Smokey's because we have found that the quality of the food is better than most and the service is usually good. They would get five stars except that we have found less than efficient service on rare occasions.That seems to go with a new employee from time to time. The food is... More

We stopped by after a family wedding and before heading over to the reception. We didn't want to eat a lot so we ordered appetizers. We tried the fried ribs. OMG, never had them fried before, nice crisp outside, BBQ smoke flavor and tender. Even with four on the plate it was enough to hold us over. Good selection of... More

Nice sized facility, that is VERY popular among locals. Though crowded, they quickly seated our party of six and wait staff was prompt. A friend and I shared the Garbage Can Pizza (three meats/extra cheese/4 vegetables) It was served hot and was delicious. Took plenty home. My wife had a smoked brisket and cheese sub; she loved it, and again... More

We stopped in over the week end and were pleasantly surprised with the menu. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, especially those who had brisket. Four different barbeque sauces are brought to the table so you can flavor you brisket to your taste. Friendly server!

I go here at least once a month for the Monday night special. The burgers are fat and very flavorful as they grind their burger fresh from ground round. The special is a burger, fries and a glass of beer. They also offer a pulled pork or sloppy joe. Love this place!

I really don't know what has happened at this place. They have remodeled the resturant with a nice up north feel. The food... all I can say is WOW!!! I had the Brisket Platter and by Brother In Law had the holy pig; Bacon, pulled pork and ham. We split our sandwiches to obtain the best flavor combo. I think... More

They really have gone above and beyond to put on a great party. By party, I mean suitable for everyone. The restaurant was full, but service was fast and the food was delicious. Try their cheeseburger basket. I believe it is the best burger EVER. Others in our party agreed. Not sure what they do differently, but they were cooked... More
