“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

We went on a quiet Monday night for a meal and was pleasantly surprised.

Both waiters were extremely helpful and funny. We had nachos for starters (please note the menu states it's cheese sauce but when we asked the waiter if we could have grated cheese, he stated it was served with grated cheese anyway). Had the cheese burger and chicken fajitas for main and both were excellent value and very filling and tasty.

Also try the Banana Milkshake with cream, amazing

“family friendly”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Went out for a meal to celebrate end of exams and belated birthday. Service was excellent, plenty of choice to suit all. Very friendly staff eager to please. Spotless and food very good. This was our second visit and was not disappointed.

“Evening family meal”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It was a fun evening with good portions of the burgers and the nacho starter was a welcome beginning to a greaqt meal suggested by my son Joe and his partner.
They have a challenge to eat a huge meal in some 30 minutes...well a lad on the next table tried, but failed not surprisingly. There was a good atmosphere there and the whole time we were there, service was fine and all attending the restaurant were obviously enjoying their meal.

Well, we went for a family meal at smokey joes. We ordered steaks from the menu which were cold when they got to the table. When we went to pay it turns out they no longer do the £10steaks we ordered. I they only do the £20 steaks so after a terrible meal with terrible service (the young staff seem more interested in their phones and smoking), it cost over £50 just for me and my partner. I when we questioned this we were met with hostility and attitude. I can honestly say that was the worst meal I've had in Louth. Thanks avoid the place at all cost

Dear Customer, I am slightly confused by your review as we do not do a £10 steak and never have our steaks are priced at £14.95,£15.95 and £21.95 so please could you advise whrere you got price as our prices are clearly stated on our menu, also the staff working on Saturday night do not smoke so am also very confused by this comment.

I look forward to your response.

Please could you confirm that this was smokey joes in Louth lincolnshire as there are a couple in other places
Kind regards
