When visiting a small town very important thing to ask is where do the locals go. The smoke house is that place Picnic style eating you might come on in a stranger .. But leave being part of the family. Come with a empty stomach lol leave the tight pants at home. Everything is made fresh daily no frozen entrees... More

When I first discovered Punta Gorda, Fl. in the late 1970's while visiting friends who had moved South from New England and had discovered this wonderful "old Florida" city with it's unique location on Charlotte Harbor, I was also introduced to Breakfast at the Smoke House. It's located a little off the main thoroughfare and away from the bustle of... More

I have eaten here many times while visiting family. I always order the sausage gravy and biscuits and I have never been disappointed!

Locally owned and operated. It's all family working in the restaurant. The gravy is homemade and amazing. The dining experience is all family style, at long picnic tables so you are always apt to meet new friends. Biscuits and gravy, and cottage fries and gravy is delicious. It is always crowded, busy and fun.

We were anxious to try this restaurant for lunch based on reviews and it being a sort of hole in the wall type place. It's a small location but we liked the simplicity. It was quite busy at around 11am with limited seating. Our waitress was friendly and promptly got our drinks and orders. The menu has a good amount... More

It wasn't my first choice for breakfast but my friend wanted to go. It's a very small establishment in a not so fancy part of town. Now I know why people love it there. It has a small counter & only picnic tables with benches. You may have to eat with strangers. The portions are huge & the prices are... More

Breakfast six days a week, lunch five days. Closed on Monday, and they only accept cash. Fast and delicious to get your day moving. Family style seating at picnic tables. Great place to meet new people. Better ask for a menu because the locals don't need them. Or just trust me and get a half-order of biscuits OR potatoes and... More
