If you like BBQ and other well prepared food you will enjoy Smoke on the Water. Good fried okra too. I go there often and always take out of town guests to SMOW.

The restaurant catered my daughter's wedding reception several weeks ago. They were prompt, efficient, polite and food was awesome. About 100 attended wedding and they prepared most on site. The venue was outside on the farm. Highly recommend them.

My husband had the ribs and brisket, both were really good, especially when combined with the 4 choices of Bar-B-Q sauces. I had the shrimp and grits and would have rated the dish better if I hadn't had better dishes 3 times earlier in the...More

It looked to me like it was big enough to accomodate 200 people. I recommand you call them and ask they provide that kind of service. Good luck!
