Four of us visited the Center Street Smoke House recently, on a quiet weekday night. Our waitress was engaging and welcoming, and on top of things. We had the ribs, roasted chicken, chicken fingers, and a great jambalaya, with plenty of shrimp, brown rice and...More

Good place to visit with friends while eating. The ribs and pulled chicken were good. Several sides to choose from. We enjoyed the coleslaw. I wouldn't pick The tomato salad again. Several choices of beer

I have tried many different things on the menu, and each has been top notch. Brisket, ribs, and chicken have a great smokey flavor. Baked potatoes are best anywhere! Hush puppies and mac & cheese are great too.

Staff not very friendly. Almost rude. Food was very good & good portions. Prices a little high, but would return. Batavia barbecue sauce was very good.

Hadn't been there in awhile, took friends from Germany looking for a good barbecue. We weren't disappointed. Food was excellent although we waited a while to get it. Would return.

This restaurant has several rooms including the bar room with booths if you want to eat there. We went in the back and ate the great barbeque foods including a special potato cassarole that tasted like twice baked potato! The bar was hopping and music...More
