This place was excellent! Not only did it have amazing food, it also had a meat raffle that was fun. The barbecue was possibly the best we have ever had!
Smokies is always a good stop for some damn good BBQ. Have eaten there several times, always tasty. The homemade sauces are great. The craft beers election is huge. Tuesday tacos are awesome and affordable. I always look forward to stopping in
I couldn't believe how good it was. We were not expecting much, but it was delicious. They were grossly understaffed and not in any real hurry to even speak with us. There was a man walking around who seemed to care, but he just repeated that someone would be right with us. That being said the food was real good. I'd honestly like to make it a 3.5 star if possible, but since it is not, the food will make me lean to a 4 star

We enjoyed the food, drinks, atmosphere & service. My husband is a BIG eater & we went in so he could enjoy their Tuesday night all-you-can eat Broasted Chicken. He said it was very good & the portion was so large that he didn't get seconds; that is a rare occasion for him. My son ordered the Catfish & really enjoyed it as well as his Bloody Mary. I had the Strawberry Feta Salad, which unfortunately tasted like it had sat under a heat lamp. The strawberries were soggy & were warmer than room temperature. I had been to Moonshine Whiskey on one other occasion & loved the salad, so I was especially disappointed with my meal this time. The food here is much better than it was when this was Fatboys. Overall I really like this place, however, in the corner with the games they have a lobster claw machine game. Apparently, the customer pays $2.00 per attempt & the restaurant will cook the lobster if you catch one. When the game is not in use the claw goes up & down into the tank, apparently to get people's attention. However, the lobsters are all crowded on the edges of the tank in constant fear of the claw. This game is repulsive & I will not go back as long as it is there, which is a shame because I live in the immediate area & would love to have a nice place like this to frequent. I am a meat eater so it may seem hypocritical that I object to this machine, but it just feels wrong.
I wanted to add that I tried their steak and it was really good! It was cooked perfectly and was nice and tender. It can with delicious roasted veggies.
We were given gift cards to this place. I have not been here in over 10 years. Back then it was a different restaurant entirely. We walked in and immediately noticed that the new place was much improved. It had a nice welcoming feel to it. We came mid afternoon, not much happening. Robert Sinclair was the bartender, who also waited on us. From the second Robert spoke, we could tell he was going to be great. Very enthusiastic, upbeat, and personable. He was one step ahead of our needs at all times. In chatting with Robert, he explained how most items are made in house, and the orderliness of the kitchen staff. It really showed in the food. The menu had a lot to offer. They had five or six variations of grilled cheese sandwiches. Absolutely delicious bleu cheese with the wings. As much as I wanted to try one of the grilled cheese sandwiches, I went with Robert's recommendation, a bourbon burger. Ohhh man, this burger was outstanding. I am going to have dreams about it. From the top to bottom, this place was fantastic. If every restaurant had a Robert, I would never eat at home again.

I can't help but love this place. It's your normal dive biker bar, but the food is awesome and the burgers are fantastic. I love the happy hour pizza, and the beer prices a reasonable. One of my favorite bars to visit. Also, the free drink if you purchase from the liquor store is a huge plus. Keep up the great work.
I still really like this place but I have tried both the prime rib and steak specials and haven't found them to be very good. The steak was coated in pepper which made it way too strong. The meat was over cooked and an odd texture. The prime rib was also over cooked. Stick to the bar food!
Terrible service waited for 40 mins to get a drink! This place needs to watch the show bar rescue and take a hint! Terrible!!!
