My wife and I stayed at SML for the weekend and visited Smokehouse Friday night for dinner. Very family friendly. Good food. Great service. Very nice people. I'm sorry to say they indicated they were closing after that weekend. The waitress said she had heard another owner may open a BBQ restaurant in that location but she was not positive.

If you're looking for Smith Mountain Lake's best pulled pork sandwich, you'll find it at Smokehouse! The choices of sides remind me of old southern fare, and everything is homemade.

This homey restaurant has the best pulled pork BBQ I've ever eaten. It was lean, NO fat in my serving, all meat and all delicious. I also enjoyed the cooked apples and sweet potato fries that came with my BBQ. I wish I had bought some BBQ to bring home with me. My husband had the chicken pot pie, which... More

A great dinner after a day in the sun cruising around Smith Mountain Lake. The special of the day was ribs which were cooked to perfection and the grilled chicken salad was fresh and very large. Our server was excellent in every way.

We stopped in at Smokehouse Restaurant after 8pm on a Saturday evening, when the kitchens of many other restaurants in SML were closed. The ribs were great, and the hush puppies were to die for! It was my son's birthday, and even though we didn't ask for anything special, the whole staff came out with his dessert and sang Happy... More

Tonight was my first time trying the Smokehouse Restaurant. Like many restaurants there were pros and cons. It was a very clean facility. There is a small bar area that seats approximately 6 people. The staff was friendly and the food came out very hot. There are a variety of options such as bbq, chicken, crab legs, fish, blts and... More

Tasty food with hearty portions at a leisurely pace in a casual setting. Very casual - in a strip mall along a country highway (just off Route 122). While the service was friendly, it was at a leisurely pace (not quick at all). If you are in a hurry to get somewhere after eating here, choose another place or you... More

We dined here as a party of 8 on a Friday night. We purposefully went a bit early to avoid any crowds and arrival by 6pm was perfect. The restaurant had lots of food choices, specials and attentive service. The half chicken was wonderful and okra tasted homemade. Everyone loved the smoked bbq. The fried seafood was light, crisp and... More

This was our first visit and we will certainly be back. The hush puppies and fresh made potato chips were very good. The pulled pork platter is worthy of a recommendation. The prices were in line with what you would expect.
