Attended work function with a ~20 person party. Service was good (considering size of group), thing flowed good (I was not part of organization function). Everyone was pleased with the appetizers and entree. I had the pulled pork and ribs, both were nice. Beer selection was also good. All and all this venue worked for our group. Everyone was pleased...

We love Smoke on the Water. Make a day of walking downtown or through the greenway then wind up at SotW for lunch or dinner. Rack of ribs is my favorite. All the sauces are home made and placed on the table for you to choose from. Get the collards. If you have your dog with you on the porch,... More

We had a party of 6 for lunch on a Saturday afternoon in January! We were seated immediately and greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable waitress! Everyone enjoyed what they ate and the atmosphere was wonderful. Favorites included: Smoke n Jackets w/ pulled pork (appetizer), collards, okra, squash casserole, all the house made BBQ sauces and hamburgers!!! Definitely will return!... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Greenville, they have the best happy hour specials, we have been here several times with our friends, the food is great and their selection has something for everyone. You will love this place and it's right next to Falls Parks, there is plenty of parking in back of the building.

The atmosphere was good and dining on the back porch was cool. However, I was unimpressed by the smoked brisket and the pulled pork that my wife had. It was way too salty. It is kind of pricey so I thought the food should have been prepared just a little better than it was. Not all of it was bad... More

Fantastic place to visit. Right next to Falls Pard on the Reedy. Had the brisket veggie soup and wedge salad. Add a glass of Pinot noir and the dinner without tip was 17.77! Great value and spectacular food. Service was very friendly and just the right tempo.

This place although loud - offers good food at very reasonable prices. Love the squash casserole and the creamed spinach. Many people love the collards. On Sundays at bloody mary's, mimosas and Palmetto's drinks only $3.

We visit 4 or 5 times a year and enjoy the casual dining experience in a great old building or street side cafe dining. Menu is something for everyone with a focus on local southern flavor. Specialty salads are outstanding and portions are very generous. We consider Smoke on the Water a Greenville staple and would highly recommend a visit.

If a restaurant smells good when you walk in you know that you have made the right choice. We were in town for the day and looking for a tasty lunch spot. TA reviews prompted a visit to Smoke on the Water, and it was an excellent decision. The smell of deliciously smoked pork drifted throughout the dining room, and... More
