After much anticipation for dinner, two of us went there and ordered a two person "sampler" and this proved to be a disappointment. The sampler had a good selection of meats and side dishes, including two short ribs, two baby back pork ribs, some brisket,...More

Enjoyed a great meal with friends. If you like BBQ, this is the place to go. The small Pit meal is the perfect size for one person. They also serve family style if you have a large group and want to try every meat. For...More

Yes, this was a disappointment. We had someone with a variety of severe food allergies in our party, and one of the reasons we chose Blue Smoke was that we had read that they have a menu which details allergens for each dish, but it...More

3 adults visited on a Friday night, the place was packed so it was good we had a table booked. There were loads of staff but the service was slow, especially for drinks. The food was ok, the spare ribs were on the dry side,...More
