The food is delicious but I really go for the musicians entertainment. Musicians I've not seen in years appear here and that's a treat for me and the friends I see there. Last time I was there Dupree Wall and singer Momma Wall were performing and what a treat. Thanks
Congratulation to Smoky Oak - Best of James Island 2011!
I have always had a great experience at Smoky Oak. Great food, great prices, great portions and great beer selection. The cuban sandwich is great and their fries are fresh cut. The portions are very generous and I always have leftovers. They seem to always have good live music on the weekends too.
There are so many options to choose from on their AYCE buffet line! With a number of fresh veggies, fried chicken, homemade banana pudding, and of course the best Pulled pork BBQ... its a bargain for your belly!
my favorite place for lunch on king street! thank you to my server for recognizing that i was on my lunch hour and brought me a big to-go cup of tea to take with me back to work. i get the double decker sandwich and mac n cheese and collards.
left out my stars - 5!
YUMMY HASH!!! And you couldn't possibly get any better BBQ chicken! :)
Outstanding ribs and sauce selection, generous servings, great service. They will tell you this is the original location, and it is easy to see why there are so many locations.
Im really surprised at the reviews. Ive always found the food to be great! All one has to do is look at the parking lot and see the neighborhood wants Smoky Oak
As a native of NC, I found Smoky Oak very enjoyable. As a fan of BBQ and having live near Lexington, the capital of BBQ, I have found a place that its BBQ is just like what I am familiar with! The service was great and I will return eagerly! RevT
Excellent service and true southern 'cue! i travel all over the South and always enjoy coming to jim 'n nicks for their pulled pork sandwich & cheese biscuits - yummmmm! oh - and the homemade cream pie. really friendly staff!
I hate traveling on Rivers Ave as we ride scooters,from West Ashley.This place is an Oasis on that tarmac of heated road,and a place to relax from the congestive highway.We loved the place and the food.Quick service ,friendly atmosphere ,and southern cooking which would put this place as a must go to when visiting near this area.
Excellent barbeque. It's the best I've had in Charleston, and I'm a bbq snob. It is definitely short on atmosphere, but the food is excellent. It's a good sign when you see smoke coming out of the back of the building (unlike Momma Brown's, which probably cooks their "bbq" in an oven). No buffet here, and the food is all the much better for it.
The Barbeque Joint is THE place for lunch in North Charleston. Pulled pork, Brisket, Mac 'N Cheese, and Slaw. Awesome sauces too - don't forget the sauces!
I dig both joints quite a lot. I go for the food sometimes and for the music other times and I always seem to come out happy. My kids enjoy it, my girlfriend enjoys it and they have a really good variety of interesting and very listenable music. It is never too loud. The sound system at both places is really well managed.
I've been to both locations several times already. I appreciate the care that they put into the music side of it and I think the BBQ is the best I've had since Mr. B's closed!
My only experience has been with the W.A. locale. Always a great meal, quick service, and friendly people. They always have live music, very eclectic, and the bar staff, always very generous. AAA+
I have eaten at several of the BBQ/Rib places in Charleston and I think this place is the best. The mac and cheese is awesome, their mustard BBQ sauce is outstanding.
Diffently a most for all BBQ fans.
Holy crap this place is good. I stopped here with some friends after a round of frisbee golf at Trophy Lakes. They were hungry, I had just eaten. I somehow got convinced to get the buffet and wound up eating 3 rounds of friend chicken, pork n beans, bbq, corn, you name it. And then pudding. I've never felt so good and so sick at the same time. Can't wait to go back.
Call me crazy, but I think you all are full of it (particularly the guy about the shots). I have had nothing but positive experiences at Smokey Oak, both with the food and the service. This place is a classic ... go there for a good time and good food.
Love this place! It was recently reviewed on What's Eating Chuck.
