Smokey's is consistently excellent. The prime rib on Friday and Saturday is outstanding! The chocolate lava cake is a must. The fish is always fresh! Great service! Basically, everything is awesome!

This is a linen tablecloth restaurant where you get a great complete meal at really reasonable prices. The menu has recognizable choices for everyone. During our last visit four of us each had different meals. We all felt the food was delicious.

This is the place to go for something special or just to treat yourself right. Everything was perfection. Our pan-fried walleye is a dish I'll be dreaming about until the next time I'm up north. Sensational. Well worth the drive and the right place to...More
