We had a late Saturday lunch at the Smokehouse. We were seated promptly in a very nice booth. The Smokehouse is an old style plush dining establishment and has been a Burbank staple more years than we can remember. We've been coming here off and on for nearly forty years! My wife had a glass of KJ Chardonnay and we... More

We were celebrating a birthday with a party of seven people. I ordered the filet mignon, as they advertise as the King of Steaks. I ordered my steak medium, when the steak was served it was well done, with no pink at all. I call over the waiter and he agreed the steak was not medium and took it back.... More

Food was ok, not great. Large portions. Lemonade sucked and didn't have any flavor. Cheese bread looked like cheetos bread.

Smokehouse does large groups well. Efficient, handles a lot of food quickly. A little to old school for me and the food is large portions and very filling. some would say out of date others would say it has a good old fashioned feel. One of the biggest menus I know.

The garlic bread is worth a trip just for that. This is an Old Hollywood vibe restaurant with a great menu, celebrity site-seeing and fun drinks. Go with pals after work or go alone. They often have specials and their steak is out of this world.

Good was great, but a bit pricey for me. Service was good. Menu was well done. I didn't care for the entertainment, but that's my taste.

Very disappointed after having brunch at the Smoke House today. Bottom line was what was once a very decent buffet brunch with above average food and great value has been changed dramatically. We've been here once a month for years but today really shocked us. Many dishes were missing, the eggs were hard and dry, the eggs Benedict had hard... More

The Smokehouse was recommended by friends, so we wanted to try it out... I really enjoyed my Rib-Eye dinner, with vegetables & Au Gratin Potatoes (a bit thick and "gloopy", more like mashed potatoes than I expected). I did find it was very salty, but still enjoyable. My friends seemed to enjoy their meals also, with no complaints. The Smokehouse... More
