Great location and even better service. Staff and owner are extremely friendly and make the best food on the south coast.
If you get a chance to come here with the family you won’t be disappointed. Staff are super accommodating to dietary needs and make great drinks.
Yum, yum yum. Had the chicken wings and they were delicious, the bbq sauce is sticky, sweet and nicely spicy. Best I have ever had. The pizza was excellent too, with the lightest crust I’ve ever eaten. Will be going back!
Without question one of the best places to eat on the South Coast. Friendly service, terrific atmosphere, can’t wait to come back again.
We regularly order the vegetarian deluxe pizza for take-out. We order extras and the final result is almost pizza perfection. Tasted a lot of pizzas and this ranks as one of the best. Pick-up time is usually accurate in our experience. The garlic bread is scrumptious!
Terrific atmosphere. Friendly attentive staff. The brisket was melt in your mouth amazing! As were the ribs. Very good pricing. We will definitely be back.
Absolute stand out. Everything was perfect, even the chips are next level crunchy with some kind of special seasoning. Adults had 2x brisket burgers (one GF) – on par with the best brisket we’ve smoked at home or had elsewhere.
Local legends! This place is unreal. Rhys Duursma was playing music on Sunday afternoon and it was absolutely incredible. Epic food and great vibe. Get along and support local businesses and live, local music!
Ever popular and rightly so – Smokey Dan’s menu is superb with a wide range of burger, brisket, pizza, loaded fries, etc options. Brisket is smoked on site and is delicious.
Have eaten here a few times now and it’s always top notch. Ribs were fabulous and we recently had the snitty burgers. Best I’ve ever had, hands down.
Delicious food, quick service and reasonably priced. The brisket on chips was an absolute winner! Overall great feed before heading to the beach.
Really delicious food. Ribs are super tasty and the food is really well prepared. Calamari was super tasty with no stringy texture. I had some pizza too which was their plain cheese and garlic pizza, I thought it was very tasty. The coffee was really good too.
So good. Great smokey ribs joint with pulled pork and slow cooked brisket. Plus great beer, a great atmosphere and great local service. A gem.
