I've been to the Smoking Oak many times and will continue to go back. The Entrance greets you with an open spit fire slow cooking the menu and the smells really compliment the experience. The customer service is excellent with knowledgeable experienced staff. Nice variety of smoked, barbeque food. Only drawback in my opinion is the ambience could be a... More

First time here. Saturday lunch so not busy. As you enter, a large rotisserie is full of meat and poultry and the smell is delicious! Nice to have an attentive waiter as that was the only positive thing we can say after that. The food was nondescript. Considering this is a meat place, you'd think there would be some flavor...

I took a drive from my new home in Minneapolis to Red Wing on a sunny Saturday afternoon. I had no particular destination in mind, but knew I needed to stop for a late lunch before heading back to the city. Initially, I drove past the Smokin' Oak, hoping for a more familiar food chain or more appealing welcoming entrance.... More

I had the chicken bacon ranch without the bun, and it was delicious! Off the bone chicken covered with bacon and swiss cheese. The baked beans taste almost as good as my grandmother's. That's a compliment!

A family gathering of eight enjoyed delicious food including such items as the rotisserie chicken, ribs, salads, and cocktails. The staff/servers are welcoming, efficient, and have a sense of humor. The restaurant must be popular as it was very busy but everyone seemed to be comfortable, were being served, and enjoying themselves.

Had lunch here on a busy Saturday afternoon. We only waited about 10 minutes. Parking lot was full since they seem to share the lot with the adjacent hotel. Our group had a pizza and burgers. Both were very good. Above average pizza. Our grandaughter had the kids Mac and cheese. I think it was just from a box of... More

Wow, a toasty warm fireplace to greet you when you arrive! The place is busy, and it's best to get your names 'put on the list'. We arrived via a recommendation from a business in town, upon inquiry for a good place to get steak dinners. We were NOT disappointed! Even though we had to wait for about 15 minutes... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is very cozy, rustic and cute. Upon stepping in the door you are given an immediate glimpse of the tasty meat that is available to enjoy being slow cooked over the fire. The pulled chicken and pork were so tender and tasty and the prices were very reasonable. Delicious!
