One of the best fish fries we've ever had. Drinks were great (be sure to try to the ice cream martinis for dessert). Large portions with much included (i.e., no extra add on prices; raw vegies at your table, too!). Great service. We are definitely...More

Smokeys is the old fashioned Wisconsin supper club. Good bar experience It is a steak house so that is what we enjoyed. Good service. My husband's birthday resulted in a free sundae.

Brought my son for his birthday. The bartender was excellent! Made the drinks superb! Unimpressed by the ambiance, but the food was delicious! Not great for a gluten free person.

The food was good, but the server, Peter, was super! Very friendly, knew when to "show up," when and how to clear the table appropriately, etc. He deserves a raise!

Seemed pretty " past its time"......worn out decor and a waiter who clearly didn't know what " single malt Brandy" was......Hmmm..... Rather surprised at the prices=overboard.

We have been here a few times and it really is just okay. Nothing to rush back to. Food is average and the atmosphere is fun but again nothing that really stands out. The martinis on the other hand are wonderful! Come for the martinis...More

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
