Had steak and ribs chips and slaw. Steak was chewy. Pork was fatty, chips good, coleslaw slimy. Not that impressed.

Came in here starving so decided to order a starter to share and a main course each... so didn't need the starter the portions sizes were large on both courses. Staff were friendly and welcoming (it was very quiet in there so can't comment if this would be the case on a busy evening) Prices were reasonable - my blackbean... More

Popped in for a milkshake with 2 kids and was told the restaurant was too busy for us to have a table for 30 minutes, considering we spent over £50 during this visit and £300 the weekend before, we were quite surprised. We were told to sit at the bar with the kids, once a waitress overheard me talking about... More

This was the most authentic American food that I've had in the UK, it was great. You have portions that you could only dream of in other American style restaurants like TGI Fridays. I had the Orleans burger and it was huge, the brisket was delicious and the burger was juicy. It's not cheap, but it's worth it.

Such a yummy dinner! We had chicken wings to share as a starter they were so crispy and tasty!! I had 1/2 chicken which was again super tasty and crispy, highly recommended. My partner went for the New Orleans burger and fries... It didn't last long! The deco in the restaurant is really cool with pictures of celebrities and graffiti... More

Me and my friend stopped by here after finding the place on TripAdvisor and we have to say it was a brilliant meal. It's owned and run by an American and the food is exactly what you'd imagine American food to be like – tasty, juicy and huge! We both got chicken wings for starter and they were pretty much...

We ordered the platters and they were massive... it was what we had expected, American fatty delicious food! I recommend sharing a big platter because there is sooooo much and a lot of choice. We were impressed by the service too.

Went to the Smoke Haus when we were visiting Swansea during Sept 2016 and really enjoyed it. The food was really nice and the restaurant had a good buzz about it. Exactly for those reasons we went back. Unfortunately it was awful. The staff were nice and welcoming, no complaints there at all. However, the food was disgusting - processed... More

It's nothing special, nice for a large group and the atmosphere and furniture is great, but the food isn't anything to hype over. Service was pretty slow but it was busy so it wasn't necessarily their fault. Will definitely return though as i love the decor and music and I do love American inspired food

The Smoke Haus is Swansea's American Diner serving quality food in a great atmosphere, huge portions, masses of meat and a challenge not for the faint of heart!
