Had the pulled pork sandwich. It was very tasty and juicy with coleslaw on the bottom bun. Baked beans were sweet and heavenly and the macaroni smokey and rich. My wife had the pulled pork grilled cheese sandwich and was very satisfied with the flavours....For dessert we had the apple crisp...another winner and fabulous way to cap off our dinner. Due to COVID we had to order online and then pick it up...easy enough to do and the food was ready on time when we arrived to pick up. The food was well packaged so once we got to our hotel nothing was disturbed. Highly recommended.More

A friend and I decided to order take-out from The Smoke. No contact service was great and food was ready for pick up exactly when they said it would be. We were both very pleased with our meals - Chicken Club with coleslaw and macaroni...and cheese and chicken wings with sweet potato fries. Would definitely eat here again.More

Delicious brisket burgers. They were delicious and moist burgers topped with tender brisket. As my husband says "meat topped with more meat is always right.'. It was just crying for a BBQ sauce or something with a little kick. Perhaps had it not been take-out...only during Covid there may have been BBQ sauces on the table to try. Seeing as we are from out of town we don"t know. Definitely worth trying...if you are expecting BBQ sauce then try asking for some on the side. We didn"t think to do that.More

We stopped to eat here after a day of kayaking. Ordered the brisket sandwich and it was amazing! So flavourful and tender. The fries were also very tasty and crispy. I would definitely visit again next time we are in Collingwood!

Older folks such as I will remember “brown-bagging” at countryside dance halls back in the days when people snuck special drinks into such establishments. Today, as the pandemic challenges continue and many restaurants in our neighbourhoods are doing only take-outs, little boxes, or brown-paper bags...are what our take-outs come in. The Smoke, which has been living up to its name in as much as smoked meats and fish are concerned, is located on First Street in Collingwood, Ontario. They too have been doing take-outs and we were fortunate to have one delivered to our door by one of our sons, Stephen, the other day. His treat! Stephen had called us first to find out what we wanted and then he called in an order for his family and for the two of us. My wife Nancy and I already had a tasty salad in our fridge that was provided by our other son Douglas, so we were truly being spoiled. Stephen picked up his order and then swung past our house to drop off our share of the food which came in a large brown bag stamped with The Smoke's name and my son's. Inside the brown bag, were two, paper clamshell-type containers each filled with French fries and a sandwich wrapped in foil paper. One sandwich was a smoked brisket. The other smoked pulled pork. Being retired, we delighted in opening the packaging and finding our “gifts”....meals ready to eat. Truth be told, there was too much food for the two of us! We cut each sandwich in half, rewrapped them and put them away with a portion of the fries in our refridgerator. From the fridge, we took portions of the mixed salad which had been given to us by Douglas. Both the smoked meat sandwiches were delicious and the fries were browned and tasty. Along with the salad, we enjoyed all the food groups! The Smoke has substantial seating indoors and a lovely patio facing First Street. Take-outs are great these days, but we look forward to the day when we can sit down at The Smoke and enjoy a lunch, or dinner, there. We might even take our sons and their families there and the treat will be on us! Footnote: keep in mind that additional comments are based on knowing what this restaurant -- The Smoke -- is like outside these pandemic-challenged times.More

TheSmoke is good for a quick lunch stop,because you are in Collingwood, you probably have somewhere to go. honestly, there is a lot of meat there ,it would not be the restaurant for a vegetarian or a vegan. I am a meat eater and their...pulled pork sandwiches are very good:)More

I had the French Onion sandwich , on a Tuesday evening when the special is no tax on sandwiches. The 4x2in piece of bread was mounded with onions and mushrooms and then a scattering of end pieces of brisket. The biggest piece was 3/4in. ....It looked as if the pieces that fray when a big slice is taken from a roast are saved up to be hidden under the melted cheese. But, fear not, you wont leave hunger as they mound up approximately 5 potatoes worth of fries on your plate to give the illusion of a big meal. Plus, it was an extra surprise to get home and notice we HAD been charged tax.More
