We ate here because it was the highest rated in Galax on Tripadviser, however we found the ribs to be just average. They were a little overdone and dried out as well.

We have eaten here before but each time we go I keep wondering "where is the smoke". The food really doesn't have the smoky taste that you would expect from A restaurant that has Smokehouse in their name. I ordered the chicken breast and wing and there was no flavor at all. If I hadn't put some BBQ sauce on... More

We stop at the Smokehouse every time we're in the area. They never disappoint. Great service. Great food. Pulled pork and chicken are REALLY good. And don't miss the banana pudding (if you have room for dessert).

Oh my, best bar-b-q ever. Staff was so helpful by telling us all about Galax. Best experience ever. Pork sandwich was tender and you can choose your own sauce. Loved it.

If in Galax for the Fiddlers Convention, check out the Smokehouse. Good food, with friendly atmosphere, and courteous staff.

Most amazing BBQ, brisket, and sides. Worth the drive and we will surely be returning again many times.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times. It has never disappointed. We brought friends one evening and he claimed that it was the best brisket he had ever eaten. They have a world class chili that I order frequently.

They want $13 for three ribs. I got the BBQ sandwich. I needed to add some of the four sauces to put on the BBQ. If you need sauce, it's not real BBQ, therefore it's average.

Very good bbq and the tea was good too. The wait was slow but that's the only negative thing about this place. Ample seating and good food. Very crowded during fiddlers convention though. Is recommend for the bbq.
