Our last night on our vacation and we wanted the supper club experience. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks and some of the food. Being advertised as a Steak and Martini restaurant, unfortunately we had to ask for the martini menu. Some had martinis...More

We chose this restaurant because we had been there about 20 years ago and were pleasantly surprised to see they were still open. Upon arriving, we noticed the sign outside was worn as was the building. We got into the restaurant and noticed tape on...More

The food is excellent. If you can put up with the tired decor and insufferable wait staff you will have an excellent evening. Had one of the best beef filets I have ever had. Perfectly cooked. The pickled beets and cottage cheese are to die...More

Business dinner at an old standby - steak was tough, drinks were watered down, soup never arrived, but salad with blue cheese french was great. Service was friendly but a little too casual with not a high level of attention to detail. I'm going to...More

As I said above, Smoky's Club, in my opinion ranks from average to not quite very good. The restaurant seems to consistently get excellent ratings but I'm not quite sure why. I suspect it is the aura or mystique that hangs over Smoky's. the decor...More

The food here was great – we had the fish fry and hash browns. However, the service was perfunctory at best. Our server gave us no information about specials and had no clue as to any of the beers available. He was very rushed and...More

Excellent Cod and Perch. Get the full Smoky's experience at a very reasonable price. Bread, Vegetable Plate, Salad, Soup & the best tasting fish we have had in a long time. Best wait staff in the city. This is a true Wisconsin Supper Club.

Last Friday we had the fish fry. It was the best I've ever had a Smokey's Club. What ever they changed made a huge difference. The perch was delicious and the cod was perfect. The service was excellent. hats off to the outstanding fish fry!...More

On November 4th, 2016 myself and 16 other family members met at Smokies for a family gathering. The initial service was adequate such as filling our water glasses and taking bar orders. The waiters obviously pushed their signature hash browns, but what they failed to...More

The steaks were dry and tasteless. Wait staff were clueless and tried to over charge us. The place looked like it was decorated by the visually impaired. Any decent Wisconsin supper club shouldn't run out of prime rib on a Saturday night.

Sorry for the tardy response. Regarding Smoky's gluten free options I cannot comment. Thankfully, I do not have to be concerned about gluten free dining. Rest assured, I will keep that in the back of my mind in future... More
