This is a good place to get some barbeque, ribs, chicken, etc, but it's a bit more upscale than just a bbq place. Vibrant bar scene. Nice outdoor patio for people watching. The food is good and fairly priced. It's a good option for southern cuisine that's a cheaper option than Soby's (also a great place).

You talk about something good. This place is WONDERFUL:) I love the mac & cheese. It's better than my grandmother's soul cooking. The homemade sauces they have is one of a kind. This place have never in 3 years did me wrong nor disappoint me

Stopped in here for appetizers and drinks while exploring the downtown area. Excellent selections on the menu. We sat at the bar. There was only 1 bartender on and even though he seemed a bit flustered, he kept up with the drink orders for the whole place as well as the food orders for those of us at the bar.... More

We arrived around 1:30, after being told we would have a 45 minute wait, I had to check in again at 3 because I hadn't heard anything. After we were seated things did not get better!!!! Instead of assigning a few waiter/waitresses to take care of the outside seating area, they had 5 people taking care of tables inside and... More

There are reasons that Smoke on the Water is a favorite in Greenville. It is part of the popular South Main area, it is in the middle of unique shops and attractions, and the food is delicious. Don't miss this place!

2nd visit in past year. Excellent food. Nice atmosphere. A bit noisy but not problematic. Great selection of Bbq meats and burgers. Look for the statue of Shoeless Joe Jackson out front.

My wife and I stopped for lunch when passing through. So glad we did. Excellent food and better service. My wife had BBQ chicken that was perfectly cooked (not at all dry). I had the meatloaf special with squash casserole. Both were excellent. Location is great with good shops and a beautiful park close by. Highly recommend as we'll be... More
