I went with the traditional. It was very good. It's a very extensive menu, an extremely greasy array of options. If you're into that, definitely go for it. I really liked my traditional one.

I grew up with poutine, as a New Englander with French-Canadian roots. While visiting Halifax for the first time in December 2016, my wife and I wanted poutine for lunch, and visited Smoke's on the waterfront. We tried two varieties: The traditional fries-gravy-cheese, and the...More

Tried their version of "home fries'- traditional poutine . Truly handcut, homemade potatoes deep fried and then mashed a bit I think. They were awesome, good amount of cheese curd too, good price, but they skimped a bit on their serving of gravy. The bottom...More

Obviously you have to have poutine when in Halifax. We went to Smoke's because Willy's was closed and we didn't want to take the time to cross the water to go to Cheese Curds. I wish we had. I got the original poutine at Smoke's...More

I have to admit, I'm a bit torn when it comes to Smoke's. See, I'm originally from Quebec, and had been in Halifax for a bit over a year before I heard that this place existed. By then, you'll understand, I was craving a poutine...More

We enjoyed sitting on the waterfront eating our poutine. Not overly priced, large serving. Enjoyable. As far as a healthy meal, it's not your best choice, but how can you go wrong with fries, gravy and cheese !
