We took our hockey team here after a game. Kudos to the Smokin' Oak for providing such great service despite me only making a reservation the night before. They were able to put our group on the basement which had a smaller, round kids table and a large adult table. The food and service was excellent. We had about 30... More

Our first time eating at the Smokin Oaks. It had been suggested to us by several people who like it. We were not disappointed. As others have mentioned, you enter the restaurant and see this wonderful large,open spit fire with meat going slowly around. It was very unusual and the smell was fantastic. They have lots of choices on the... More

The first thing to greet you is a meat rotisserie on a open wood flame, and it smell great. The owners are great and the staff is very friendly. I enjoyed the chicken and wood fired pizza there very much.

Marinaded beef tip atop an incredible garlic mushroom sauce with pasta and home made garlic bread. One of the best dishes of this type ever tasted. Peter the server was great. Plenty of sauce that I couldnt stop eating. Would have again.

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.
