Great mac n cheese with added chorizo ! Our party had fajitas, burgers and a combo dish of ribs and pulled pork with a side of their dirty fries - all good !! Service was good too
Father day meal first time visiting food was ok would order different food next time good service nice restaurant
I recommended friends and family to come here before I'd even left the restaurant hahaha.
There was only 1 minor slip up with my main (no spicy mayo that should've come with the burger) but the waiter fixed that, no problem, super quick. He was super polite, friendly, not pushy to take our order. Wasn't too noisy either, even though there was a large group for a party! Defo coming back!
Huge portions of awesome food! The pulled pork is immense!
Just always amazing!
Really enjoyed our meal at Smokeys. Really friendly and helpful staff who were happy to move us outside as the weather was great. Excellent location; looking out to sea. Made the mistake of ordering a starter, which definitely wasn't needed considering the size of the full rack of ribs I / we had for main course. Would definitely go again.
Brighton is our favourite place to get a weekend away and we always head straight to Smokey’s for dinner as the service and food never fail to impress!
Really good service and food.
There was a very relaxed atmosphere, which allowed our family to chill and enjoy the food.
We were also allowed to bing our daughters birthday cake, light the candles and all the customers joined in signing 'Happy Birthday'... Nice touch!
Great place for ribs, brisket and chicken with good, attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere. Very family friendly too.
Love this place, fantastic food and huge portions!! Also enjoyed a cocktail and a nice bottle of wine
Food was amazing and there was lot of it, portion sizes are massive! Great value for money😍 would definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. Lovely and friendly staff. I will definitely be returning.
Smokey’s has good quality food that is reasonably priced and served in good time. Our waitress was very helpful. We will be returning
Love this place. Will definitely be back. Great service with happy, friendly, welcoming and attentive staff.
Really good food and proper sized portions. Would definitely go back when in Brighton.
We got a last minute lunch booking on a very busy day (we were in town for a conference). We had to seat ourselves as the staff were swamped but once we let them know it was great. Quick service, tasty food and really good value. We ordered mac and cheese, pulled pork sandwich and a hotdog and we were stuffed!
Where do I start? Nice welcome, friendly and helpful staff, nice decor (American rustic), easy to find and then....the food, OMG! The portions are huge and the quality of the food is amazing! All I would say is, make sure you are hungry!!!
Very good food and hospitality but we were seated closely to a loud group of dinners.
Can’t fault the staff and food though
Had a great time here, it wasn’t packed when we went so were able to relax and talk easily amongst our party. The service was good and the food amazing. I had the mac and cheese and it was the best I’d ever had. The platter looked stunning as did the salad. The portions were much more than adequate and I was able to take home what we had left over. All in all the evening was a great successful
I booked this blindly the day before we visited, as a group of friends were going to be visiting the I360 and wanted a restaurant close by. Smokey’s didn’t disappoint however we did have to laugh when my friend ordered a plain burger with lettuce, nothing else, and out came a burger bun with a huge amount of lettuce and no burger! Will definitely be back.
We visited Smokey’s on a horrible, wet, blustery Sunday evening so, not surprisingly, it was very quiet.
Staff were welcoming and friendly. Food arrived very quickly, good portion sizes - the beef brisket was absolutely amazing, we weren’t keen on the pulled pork but only because it had a very strong flavour - tomato/bbq and couldn’t taste the pork.
Would definitely go back and recommend to anyone wanting a good hearty meal.., the brisket is a must have!
Food portions are huge - kind of bar like but the restaurant is very quite.
Particular girl, extremely rude. Given wrong food, sent it back and they took half the food off my plate and tried to give me a smaller portion! Asked for the bill and the lady laughed and ignored me. Won’t be returning
5 star will be back 100% staff where very helpful food was a great value. kids were welcome
They were very welcoming even though we were a little late for reservation. Got "lost" after Uber dropped off. Not realizing we were almost next to it and they were downstairs. It was dark out and windy and rainy and cold
We were a table of two and were practically seated on top of a stag do (we couldn't move our chairs without touching) which meant conversation was pretty much a no-go. Food was OK but one chicken wing was cooked perfectly and the rest were underdone so they obviously weren't all cooked at the same time which was disappointing.
Another fantastic evening at Smokeys, the staff are friendly and efficient, without being overbearing. Leading to a generally friendly, vibrant environment.
The food is freshly prepared and never disappoints. The portions are very large, wear loose clothing!
Great food great service excellent waiting staff
Fantastic food and lots of it.... service really fast and friendly....love this place.
Amazing food and service. Best burger I've had in years.
Booked for 18:15 and due to traffic was going to end up late. Phoned the restaurant and they very kindly moved the reservation to 18:30. When we got there they didn't berate us for being late or tried to rush us. They were fantastic and attentive without being overbearing. Give those workers a raise!
Excellent service as usual. Food was great as usual. Good value for money. A little too noisy on this visit
Our host was lovely she gave good advice on the menu and ensured all good was too a good quality. Very friendly and advised where to go for the rest of the evening.
Smokey’s provided the perfect place for a pre concert meal in a good atmosphere.nthe staff were willing to please and efficient. Our waiter made us an excellent Irish coffee even though he only had ordinary and not squirts cream! “Good!” We said. We shall return. Oh food was delicious and portions were not stingy!
Daughters 15th birthday - she loves smokeys!! Everything great as always!! Thank you
Booked a table for me and my 12 year old Daughter prior to attending the Brighton Center for WWE wrestling show. Service was quick and attentive. I was aware due to previous reviews that the portions were large so I ordered chicken and ribs with fries and slaw, which is one dish, for us both to share. The food arrived within 10 mins and was hot, plentiful and delicious. 10/10 in my opinion.
Good meal, restaurant was pretty quiet, this led to bad ambience with poor lighting and music. Food was decent though.
We were staying at the Hotel above 'Smokey's' and decided to give the restaurant a 'go' for Dinner.... (& Breakfast)....
The Service was Awesome.. the staff were friendly and welcoming.... The food was great. Served up quickly and piping hot...
What a great place to eat out...!!! I'm soooo coming again..
My first visit to Smokey’s and I was not disappointed, I starved myself all day as I read on reviews that portions were large, this was true and I couldn’t move after 3 courses.
Great beer and wine selection and served in the correct beer glass.
The only gripe I had was service was a tad slow given it wasn’t very busy .
But don’t let that put you off as it’s a great place for good food and good portions!
Nice place worth a visit. Casual dining experience
The food is great and lots of it. Make sure youre hungry. The staff are brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble. Very friendly and attentive. Well done to all at Smokeys
