We were seated right away, even though the place was very busy on a Sunday afternoon. It took a while for our waitress to initially serve us but then the drinks and food came out relatively fast, and the server checked back with our table numerous times. We ordered the smokehouse salad, which contained smoked chicken, bacon, greens and cheddar... More

I like the Old Smokehouse - it's big and roomy and smells good. Some evenings, it can be packed to the gills though. The food is pretty good and you can add as much sauce as you like from the bottles on the table. The real highlight for me are the Buffalo wings - all of which have been SMOKED... More

My wife had the Delmonico and loved it. I had the smoked baby back ribs, reminded me of a southern BBQ pit, so tender and moist! The sides were surprisingly out of this world, loaded mash potatoes are much like the filling in a twice baked, so good! Great atmosphere and service and a great price. I even liked the... More

Great little spot, usually busy. We love their ribs, catfish, and garbage plate. They have cute country decor and a bar as well. Food is usually served fairly quickly and the service is great.

We were told that this place had great ribs and good live music. We turned up (most things round this way close at 9pm) at around 9pm expecting to be turned away and it turns out they're open until whatever! (But not Monday or Tuesday please note) We were seated quickly even though they were pretty full and enjoyed the... More

As there arent' many options in the area, and it was parent's weekend at Clarkson, we decided to get "out of town" and drive 20 minutes from Potsdam to The Olde Smokehouse. We made reservations based on other people's reviews, and we were GLAD that we did. The ambience of the place is great: a little noisy, close quarters, country... More

This is not a large restaurant so if you do not reserve, at least on weekends, expect to wait a good long time. Two things kept me waiting. First, there is nothing close by, as this is really in the middle of no where. Second, once you do get seated, the servers are pleasant and the foods, at least the... More

Our family party of eight, with reservation, was seated and served immediately. There were more than enough experienced servers on hand. The restaurant was full, with families including young children. This is clearly a popular local spot, and many patrons knew and chatted with each other. The menu offers both St. Louis-style ribs and baby back ribs, along with steak... More

Closed Mondays! (Didn't get to sample.) It's not particularly easy to find either unless you have a map of the hamlet of Madrid.
