We had dinner(11 of us boys), and had sharing plates of all sorts of things. Chicken wings, Burnt Tips, Ribs, Flank Steak. Beautiful Food. Good smokey flavours. A great Night. Wine list is average to disappointing. Very little good Tasmanian Wine Beer is Good

We ate & left early but nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent & there was plenty of it. A great atmosphere - relaxed, comfortable. A nice selection on the menu - not too big. Highlight of the trip to Launceston

I went to smokey joes after one of friends raved about the place and I wasn't disappointed. From the service to the great chilly sauce it was a wonderful experience. Definitely recommend the wings and gumbo!! You feel well looked after!! Will definitely come back.

It has been a long time between Cajun restaurants for us, so we were looking forward to dinner given the reviews.

Dinner for 6 including one vegetarian and we were delighted. Had read some good and not so good reviews and were unsure how the night would turn out. Honestly we didn't need to worry. After finding it (its a sweet little house behind garden) we were greeted and looked after very well. Our waitress Jess was very helpful and attentive.... More

We went in without a booking on a weekday. However, the staff were so accomodative to arrange a table on the spot. Excellent food. Menus were unique to Smokey Joe. Friendly staff.
