We happened to have two family events in Brighton in the space of a week and ate at Smokey's both times. It was really good food and service. Food was fresh, large portions and filling. It is not a la carte, it is fajitas and burgers and it was refreshing to have a no frills but fast, polite and strong service to back it up.
We all thought it was good food at a good price and will be going back. Oh and also one of our meals ended up being a huge rush as we had run out of time and the team nailed it with fast service with a smile with no fuss.
Thanks everyone at Snokey's - we will be back again.

The sliced brisket here is better cooked at Smokeys than at some famous chains of restaurants that have recently introduced this dish. The beef melts in the mouth and there is very little waste, just pure meat. The chips are excellent, if a little salty. Crisp on the outside, but fluffy on the inside and remain uncannily hot. The staff are jolly, friendly and helpful.

Smokeys was highly recommended and right so. We was a group lads on a stag do and was well worth a visit to start our night on the right track. Amazing food and amazing service. Was abit pricey but definitely got your money's worth in food to say the least. Thank you Smokeys for a great meal!

Fantastic venue,great choice of food,excellent service only downside is limited seating and access for disabled patrons as main part of restaurant appears to be located downstairs so only outdoor seating available.

A great authentic restaurant with amazing food. My first time eating here and even though we were a bit late for our booking the service was second to none and so quick when ordering food. It was with us within a few minutes and tasted incredible. The only downside I can think of is the space as with many customers it can seem cramped.

My second visit to Smokeys, this time with my Family before going to a Show in the Brighton Centre.
Very convenient location for the Brighton centre and service was very fast but still attentive.
Food was generous and tasty as before. If you go for a full rack of ribs or a sharing platter be prepared to endure the meat sweats lol.

A very warm welcome, as usual. We have 2 small dogs and can take them in as long as we eat in the bar area. We had the meat platter for 2 which was delicious. The staff are very attentive without being overbearing. We went for my husband's birthday and we had a really great time. Would definately recommend this place and would always go back when in Brighton.

Bigger on the inside, this gorgeous Tardis of food is a heaven to behold. I have visited Smokey's several times and will do again and again. Whether it be for a food filled, date night or a group occasion, this is a venue for meat lovers everywhere - no politeness necessary. It's a food lover's ecstasy and I love it, love it, love it!

If you like BBQ meat then Smokeys is your place. We were a birthday party of 7 people age ranging from 20 - 82. All enjoyed the selection from the menu. The shared platters are huge we made 2 go between us with a doggy bag to take home. The service was attentive without being over bearing. Will definitely come again .

Easy to book online, we were running 10 minutes late so called the restaurant - this was no problem for them and they were very accommodating on arrival. Very welcoming and friendly, quick service, good quality food for a very reasonable price! Calmer atmosphere early on in the evening so suitable for couples, then a livlier atmosphere as the evening goes on, great for larger groups. Highly recommend to my friends and family - great experience!

Doesn't look much from the outside but is a lovely environment once seated in the restaurant. Great venue for dinner before a show at the Brighton centre. Easy 5min walk. Good timely service. Huge size portions though so be hungry or maybe share? Our second visit and would definitely use again.

Our first visit to Smokeys, we had been told it was good and we were not disappointed.
We were met with a friendly smile and the staff were first class al evening.
There was a good choice of menu, it came piping hot and in substantial quantities.

The place was warm and well lit, and the toilets were clean and smart. This shows the place is not just top show but looks after you end to end.

We would definitely visit again and recommend it to anybody who likes BBQ style meals
