We order the best burger they had , but it was the worst burger ever. The bread was about 19 years old so my knife was unable to cut trough it, We could not eat it. Was given a 10% discount and a simple sorry.Do not waste your money.

Visited this US-style BBQ joint with friends. For six hungry guys after a decent meal after a day of sea fishing it was perfect. Food wasn't knock-you-down amazing but was proper 'man food' that had us all beat! Service good, some decent beers on tap.

I had the chicken fajitas. Overcooked veggies. Disappointing guacamole. Nice serving sizes and good service.

We visited smokers for what we planned to be a quick bite to eat, however the enormous portion sizes altered that plan slightly! The staff were amazing at there job and our waiter had only done 2 shifts prior to this! He was amazing!

Easter weekend, myself and 3 friends visited at 4pm for an early lunch, we did book and although it was reasonably quiet when we showed up it soon filled up! Great little establishments, with unique quirky decor and a real comfortable vibe! The place is much bigger than you initially think and there is seating outside, we were promptly shown... More

We ate here twice this weekend. The food was amazing , the service faultless and all at a great price. Goodness knows what the people who criticised the service are on about - I couldn't disagree more. Will definitely go back. Thank you Smokeys ;-)

Wow - it's a total meat feast at Smokeys in Brighton. The brisket and pulled pork was amazing and the signature baby back ribs were just unbelievable! Try the blowout 14oz burger and if you really think you can double it up, then give it a go! Service is great and atmosphere really good - a must try if you... More

My 3rd visit and again a real meat feast. There were 4 of us, we had 4 x starters to share and the Blowout Platter with a side of ribs to share. So much food and every single item was superb. We had 2 x beers and 2 x bottles of wine and the bill was £32 per head. Fantastic... More

Visited Smokeys after seeing a previous review. Lived up to our expectations! Excellent value for money, varied menu with big portions. Most people taking doggy bags home. Excellent, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Will definitely visit again on our next trip to Brighton.

First time I'very been to Smokeys, after hearing lots of good things about it. It had a really nice feel to it and lots of choice on the menu. The portions are huge and the food quality is good. Decent value for money and would happily go again. The guy that served us was happy and efficient. Definitely recommended
