Visited in March with friends. They have an array of homemade sauces which are awesome. I had the pulled pork which was very tasty. The only thing I didn't like was employees would walk around with iPads and stare at customers. Instead of helping the busy waitresses they are on the iPads. For instance, we had to wait 10 minutes... More

Once in a while you come across a restaurant that, in your books, is on of the worst you've ever dined in. I have to say that this place would easily qualified to be it. It could be very deceiving since the reviews seem to be good, the crowd was there but this is where the "Glory" ends. I've been... More

We ate dinner here for the first time and were utterly unimpressed. We had high hopes, especially with the positive reviews, but it did not measure up. We ordered the smoked salmon, smoked chicken, and fish chowder. The salmon was over salted, fishy, and far from smoked. The fact that you MUST order two sides to the fish is also... More

My wife and I and two friends had Sunday Brunch. The four of us shared three items: smoked wings appetizer, cornbread pancakes with pulled pork, and the barbecue sampler. Wings were really delicious and were a nice size, but i wish there were more of them. The Cornbread pancakes were awesome - two huge pancakes, and they tasted really good... More

Was featured on the "you gotta eat here" show so we decided to try it. They highly recommended the ribs, brisket and pulled pork. I got the burger that had the brisket and it was one of the best brisket I've ever had. They also have their different sauces at the tables for you for your meals! Didn't really like... More

Great little restaurant! The food is amazing. My husband is a "connoisseur" of poutine and the Smoke "house" poutine with bernaise sauce is one of the best he has had. The salmon burger is my favourite. The staff is efficient and helpful. Service is fast. We stop in for a meal each time we are in Collingwood and would highly... More

We have eaten here multiple times and were never disappointed. We really love the Ribs and like having a choice of options for sauces AND side dishes.

We happened on this amazing restaurant by chance. And was it ever good! I had the pulled pork and hubby had the triple bacon sandwich. The fries and gravy were unbelievable and the mac 'n cheese was out of this world.

We both had the Smoked Philly sandwich. It took 40 minutes to arrive and the meat was over cooked to the point of being a crispy. There was nothing juicy about this sandwich. We could have dealt with the tardy service, if the food was good and worth the cost. Overpriced for sure.

Thank pattivw2016

TheSmoke has taken BBQ to a Whole New Level. From traditional award winning BBQ such as succulent Smoked Ribs, Beef Brisket, Chicken and Pulled Pork to Non Traditional BBQ such as Smoked Trout, Smoked Balls of Meat, Smoked Burgers and Smoked Ice Cream. Everything is made from scratch on the premises from the Chef's own recipes.
Recently filmed for the Food Network Show, "You Gotta Eat Here" Season 4, with Host John Catucci, tells you we are doing something right. We have also won many awards, including the People's Choice Award for Collingwood's Taste of The Town, two years in a row.
Our menu offers creative BBQ Sandwiches, like a Wild Boar Bacon Lettuce, Tomato and Smoked Cheddar Sandwich (WBBTLC) on grilled Sourdough, to our "Cow Meats Pig" Sandwich (basically and Beef Brisket sandwich on top of their Pulled Pork sandwich. Also voted "Best Burgers" by Days Out Ontario, with their smoked Beef, Turkey or Salmon Burgers, or the Poutine Burger, Pig on a Patty or Wholly Cow.
Don't leave out the other mains, like Smoked Salmon, Trout, Wings, Brisket, Pulled Pork and Bacon Wrapped Loaf of Meat. And pick one or two sides from Sweet Potato Fries, Mac n Cheese, BBQ Beans (a 24 hour process to make), Salads and more.
In addition to dine in, and take out, we also have take home. Most of the meats are smoked and fully cooked, individually cry-o-vacked, ready to take home and re-heat. From Full racks of Pork Back Ribs, Smoked Burgers, Trout, Bacon and More. Everything is made in house, and full of flavour. Five house made BBQ sauces are at the table to play with, and purchase to take home
