Our server was very pleasant, and helped with recommendations from the lunch menu. I chose the BLT, and others enjoyed a salad and some of the bbq. The food was tasty, and the courtyard a nice place to enjoy an afternoon meal. However, I would...More

Our group of 10 adults was fortunate to get a reservation for their outdoor area. It is gorgeous! Flowers and trees everywhere made it a very relaxing and enjoyable dinner. The food and drinks were also very good, and everyone enjoyed their choices.

During our stay in Polson we went a few times with our children to The Smoke House and every time the food was very good (ask for the chef’s special!) and the staff was friendly. They have good cocktails, a selection of beers (including Belgian!)...More

This place is casual and well-served. The staff was very friendly, especially the woman serving our area. One smallish issue was the number of yellow jackets (wasps) that joined our table . . . as soon as they took the plates away, the wasps left....More

When we arrived, the deck was full, so we opted to sit inside instead of waiting. The hostess sat us at the edge of the dining room, by double doors that were open to the patio, so we really had the best of both worlds....More

Before my first trip to Polson in more than 15 years, I asked a friend there to recommend a restaurant. She named only one place: this one. So it was with high hopes that I and four other out-of-towners dropped in for a late dinner,...More

My group was only 5 people total. As my review states, we found both the service and food quality to be lacking--but not nearly the disaster described by the Wedding Party review. I know I won't go back with a party of any... More

the simple answer is no. However if it's a service dog they would allow it and depending on who's working, some do allow them on the patio that is off of the bar.

The Smokehouse is an old Montana lodge with a fireplace burning in winter and a shady flower filled patio for summer dining. The huge lawn ia also a wonderful place for the kids to play with our bunnies and they love it. We have a full service bar with Belgian beers and local brews on tap, and a complete wine list. We also have a brunch buffet every Sunday from 8 am till 2 pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays we have live music.
