I'm so glad Smoky's is still here, after all these years. It coninues to deliver a great meal in a great atmosphere. Steaks and sides were all perfect, prices are reasonable for the quality. Forget those pretentious other places! Smoky's has always been the real...More

The food was good, but the server, Peter, was super! Very friendly, knew when to "show up," when and how to clear the table appropriately, etc. He deserves a raise!

The food is excellent. If you can put up with the tired decor and insufferable wait staff you will have an excellent evening. Had one of the best beef filets I have ever had. Perfectly cooked. The pickled beets and cottage cheese are to die...More

Business dinner at an old standby - steak was tough, drinks were watered down, soup never arrived, but salad with blue cheese french was great. Service was friendly but a little too casual with not a high level of attention to detail. I'm going to...More

As I said above, Smoky's Club, in my opinion ranks from average to not quite very good. The restaurant seems to consistently get excellent ratings but I'm not quite sure why. I suspect it is the aura or mystique that hangs over Smoky's. the decor...More

Sorry for the tardy response. Regarding Smoky's gluten free options I cannot comment. Thankfully, I do not have to be concerned about gluten free dining. Rest assured, I will keep that in the back of my mind in future... More
