Love this place. Great smoked pork and briskets. Bake beans to die for. When crowded it's fairly noisey. I love prime rib but smoked prime rib was tough. Not available every night. Kinda hard to find but the countryside and food is worth the trip....More

We called ahead so there was no waiting. This is a college area and the students like it here so be prepared. Food was excellent and service was adequate, and cost was median. Doesn't look like much but you will not go away hungry.

These guys do BBQ well for a reasonable price. We enjoyed the annual live music night from Double Axel without the crowds they draw in Potsdam

We were visiting Potsdam and after a very disappointing meal at Sergi's the night before, we wanted something good. We read good reviews of The Olde Smokehouse. It was not a very long drive from Potsdam, maybe 12 miles. We arrived at 8:00 p.m., so...More

I feel exactly the same. It does not make any sense to me to have a beer list without the prices being included. This is assuming that they are not all the same price (which would be a bit unusual.)
