Love this place, the beef brisket in particular. Went during the week, not crowded at all. Service could have been more attentive considering how few people were in the restaurant at the time, but minor point. Their novelty "jail house" booths are amusing - and a big hit with the kids

What a wonderful surprise to find very good BBQ and an ocean view too. Wife had Baby Back Ribs and I had the Chicken. I knew she wouldn't eat all the ribs. Meat melted off the bone delicious. Sides we good but nothing a good as the main course.

We suggest you have try tip. The sweet potato fries are great and the baked beans are okay. Riblet basket was a full meal in itself. Cute area to take kids where you can sit in a jail booth. If you get a window seat it's a nice view of the ocean.

Smokey's is unusual for a BBQ restaurant in that they have all types of BBQ- most specialize in one type. All at Smokey's are delicious. They have a combo plate that my wife and I will order as take out. You can choose three or four types of meat as well as a number of side dishes. We find this gives us the variety we want and one plus a dessert is more than enough. BTW, did I mention the desserts are great! Oh, the location is great, too! Not many BBQ places offer ocean views.

WE had two lunches there. Wonderful food, and great service. They have two "jail" set ups perfect if you have kids!
