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 summer and winter but it's pretty busy in the summer. Winters slow down and it's... More

Great food, service and atmosphere! True supper club experience. Love the relish tray when you sit down. Soups are fantastic and salad always tastes so fresh. Every meal has been great - filet, walleye, scallops - but my favorite is the chicken milanaise! I would highly recommend stopping at Smokey's.

Went out for our one good meal of our trip and we weren't disappointed. All the food was excellent. Lamb chops, prime rib, crab cakes, and filet all done perfectly. Would return in a minute! Bar very nice as well with piano player, great overall experience.

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. We started with a salad and a very good cup of Clam Chowder. Our entrees... More

Very nice little supper club. Very busy on this October Tuesday evening so we ate at the bar. A limited menu at the bar but enough choices for us. Diane, the bartender, was busy but pleasantly attentive. Appetizer portion of scallops was excellent as was the Kobe beef burger served medium rare as ordered. Large side of fries were hot... More

We had Smokeys recently cater our daughters wedding. Friends had recommended them to us since we are not from the area. To say we were blown away by the exceptional service and quality of everything we had, would be an understatement! Jim and his waitstaff were friendly, professional, and accommodating. The prime rib was exceptional, the Mediterranean stuffed chicken breast... More
