Their baby-back ribs, pulled pork BBQ, wings and chili have amassed countless first place awards over the years. Other specialties from the BBQ pit include texas-style beef brisket, honey glazed smoked chicken, and turkey. The Smokehouse has a menu filled with many delicious items. Come try the fresh hand cut steaks, juicy burgers, sensational salads, and a wide selection Southern side dishes. Smokehouse on Palmetto Bay Road offers it fine food and friendly service in their spacious dinning room, and outdoor deck complete with fireplace. Enjoy one of their 14 ice cold drafts or cocktail while watching your favorite sporting event in their warm and inviting bar.

“Great food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

I visited the Smokehouse a few nights ago with some family. The wait wasn't bad, around 20-25 minutes but we were very excited once we sat down. We started out with the onion loaf which is a spin off of a blooming onion. It was AMAZING! for dinner I tried the Bar b Cuban sandwich which was amazing and even mixed it with some of the mild and mustard sauce which our waitress recommended. My family tried the pork sandwich and also the half rack of ribs which they both raved about. I am a local so i cant wait to b back and try it again!

“Outstanding food and even better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

We actually didn't set out to eat BBQ for dinner. After having a really poor experience at another restaurant we ended up giving The Smokehouse a try as a backup plan.

Had a drink at the new outdoor bar which was comfortable and fast friendly service. We ate inside and were thrilled with the quality of the food. Wonderful ribs are not what you'd expect in HHI but they were excellent. They accommodated a slight menu variation for us on the Smoked plate sampler and couldn't have been nicer about it. We'll definitely make this a first choice next trip. Wonderful experience!

“A++ , Ask for Miss Lily”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Great atmosphere and even better food. Top notch staff-- friendly and very helpful with suggestions. Lily was an absolute joy, some of the best service we've had on HHI. My family shared the nachos which were gone in a matter of seconds... they were THAT good. For dinner we had the cuban, smokehouse salad, the top sirloin and a half slab of ribs that came with grilled veggies, cornbread (YUM) and mac n cheese. Everyone LOVED their meals! Thanks for everything Miss Lily!
