We booked a table at this restaurant after recommendation but it certainly didn't live up to expectations, we arrived at 7.30 and were not served our meals until 9.15pm, when the meals arrived 3 of the 4 meals were cold. So many people were sat with coats on as it was so cold, we asked for air con to be... More

This review is for our experience in Nov of 2016. We had family in from Britain, for a wedding in NJ and spent a day in NYC. Not realizing everyone would stick together and that we were all going to eat together, we didn't make a lunch rezzie anywhere. We were a group of 16, having been a professional restaurant... More

We visited last night to celebrate a birthday. We sat at bar waiting for the birthday boy ... great cocktails and service. Exceptional!!! Try bourbon smash was great. After we were seated the waitress warned that the wait could be long. Ok ... we wanted to chat. We ordered drinks ... about 45+ minutes later no drinks, no rolls, no... More

We went there with my mother on a Friday night without reservation... They put our name on the waiting list. We waited in the bar having our beers... They have a wide selection of whiskey... It is very vibrant place, kind staff... We really enjoyed the atmosphere... We had spicy alabama chicken wings, corn bread and beignets... Nice, cosy place.

To be honest, we came at blue smoke in october 2015, but the app doesn't allow us to write an oldest review. Perfect place to taste typical american ribs (beef and pork) with good sides. The place is very popular so you would have to wait...but be patient ! We ate pork ribs and it was succulent : both tender... More

I visited with a business client. Easy environment to talk. Relaxed environment is right for jeans and flannel to suits. You'll see a mix of the full range. Food was excellent as promised. I had the brisket plate and found it delicious. If you're not familiar with brisket, beware of the fat layer that could have you trimming off a... More

We stopped here a few years ago, and were pleased that not much has changed. Everything looked the same! We were quickly seated at lunchtime, and our waiter Andrew welcomed us and explained the menu choices. We chose chopped bbq sandwiches, baked beans, cold slaw, and a Texas Caesar Salad. Of course, we started off with Corn Bread Madeleines, and... More

We ordered "family style", big platters of ribs, pulled pork, fantastic spicy wings, and good sides. I had an incredible porter beer with it.
