Good quality for the price. Good wait staff. Not the best BBQ but not bad either. The pulled pork was the best on the smokehouse sampler.

We really enjoyed the food at the Smokehouse. We got an appetizer of the nachos and they were tremendous. For dinner we split a rack of ribs and they were equally delicious. We will be back the next trip to Hilton Head

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.
