Only about 2 miles from town. Relaxing decor. Many interesting entrees and desserts. Staff checked on guests frequently for needs. Delicious food served as a culinary delight. Owned by owners of The Lodge - free voucher from The Lodge for a glass of wine here.

This small supper club is everything the other reviews say. Food is excellent. One warning if you order dessert - portion sizes are large but I would order one again! Reservations are recommended.

Great people, wonderful food and a fairly priced wine list. Piano player is very good and sets the atmosphere. They are very accommodating in modifying a dish to suit the taste - they make a great chicken Marsala that isn't on the menu. Been there...More

Great find in the Northwoods! Great service, friendly staff, and delicious food! They also have a piano player on the weekends - which is a nice added bonus! Our entire group left full and happy. Will be back for sure!

My sister, who has a Lake House in nearby Mercer, recommended Smokey's to us. She knows we love fine dining. We attempted a walk-in on Saturday, but the wait was too long, so we made reservations for Sunday night. We were not at all disappointed....More

When I hear the name Smokey's I picture a wood fired grill. How do they cook the steaks? What is the BBQ Mini Pork Shanks? Is this their rack of ribs so to speak?

Response from Donald J S | Reviewed this property |
Not sure. Usually wood fired grills are exposed, but not here. I feel it is more traditional cooking. But very good.
Menu should have prices
