    Cocktails, microbrews, wine and of course delicious food. The steak flight cooked on table is a fun way to start a dinner for two and sample the various entree meat options. The atmosphere is inviting with very courteous and knowledgeable staff. 100% would recommended for anniversary or any other reason you could find to celebrate with a dinner out.

    Experience would have been a LOT better, had the NOISE level in the BACK by the patio, wasn’t SO loud. Shrimp in shrimp cocktail was OVERCOOKED and buratta salad was NOT tasty. Barring the noise and the other complaints and the EXORBITANT pricing it was just an, OKAY experience.

    Phenomenal night out. Great atmosphere for couples and friends. The quality of the food is amazing. Portion sizes are just average. The lamb ribs were excellent. This was the only dish that had leftovers. My group ordered the quail dish, ravioli, smoked oysters and salad.

    Being an older couple in our mid-seventies, we would have preferred a table in a quieter area than the bar. The couple next to us invited another to join their table for two, which crowed our already tight seating.

    Food was exceptional! Really interesting cocktails that were brilliantly made by the bartender. The problem happened when we were seated, which took a little while in spite of our reservation. The service was a STRUGGLE!!! Plates were rarely cleared. Coffee drinks came out cold, and after dessert was already finished. Honestly, it just seemed like the waitress was out of her depth. And she only had three tables that we could tell. She just did a lot of looking around confused it seemed. Which seems particularly odd since she never brought a single thing to our table herself. We would likely go back, with this sincere hope that that waitress has moved on to other things.

    My wife and I visited Smoked for the second time. The service had much improved since the first time we went. We appreciated our waitress and the staff we encountered. The food is good, but it's also very expensive. Our drinks were very good as well. Our creamed corn was lukewarm, but the staff corrected the error and quickly brought out fresh corn. They also included a desert on the house. Unfortunately, Smoked uses an electronic device to present the bill, which the waiter/waitress holds out and invites you to swipe your card. Because of this, one needs to ask to see the itemized bill and then add a tip while the server holds out the electronic bill in front of you - which is uncomfortable. Smoked has a great rear bar and outdoor patio with lots of room which would be perfect for a happy hour after work. I'm not sure if they do a happy hour during the week but they should!

    Our party of four enjoyed an early Father’s Day dinner. Our waitress was very attentive, but we found the wine list limited for white wines. Our small plates were delicious, the tuna tartare and the meat and cheese board. Two of our entrées were delivered to the wrong table, so two of us received entrees and the other two had to wait almost 15 minutes for new plates to be delivered. The manager did come speak to us and we appreciated his forthright apology. The portions are right sized and not huge so we were glad we ordered two sides to share. Overall it was a good night

    The prince Edward mussels are a must have from the appetizer menu! Two of my current favorite entrée items are the lamb ribs, and the bison steak. From the cocktail menu, the smoked old fashioned is the best I've ever had. I am never disappointed with a meal experience at Smoked.

    We were very excited to try this place. Unfortunately we had been sitting at our table for approximately 20 minutes and still had not been waited on. I got up to go speak with the hostess who was very friendly and apologized. I assume it was just some miscommunication or perhaps they were short staffed. Shortly after we were waited on by Victor who was very friendly and knowledgeable. He more than made up for our long wait time. Overall we had a very pleasant experience and will definitely be returning.

    Absolutely beautiful restaurant with multiple rooms and a fabulous porch. Service was slow. Seafood tower appetizer was really nice. ($75) Another appetizer was muscles. the portion was laughable. Maybe 10 small muscles in a coffee cup with a tablespoon of bland sauce and a few sliced red peppers. Fish main course was no more than 2 or 3 ounces. ($47) We were there celebrating our anniversary. Waiter wished us happy anniversary but no champagne or desert. Bill well over $200. There is a competing restaurant down the street across from the Statehouse. Smoked owners should go there for dinner a few times and learn what our great city of Columbia expects as far as service and food. First impressions lasts a long time.

    The service and cocktails were excellent! At one point we were hearing the piped-in music as well as the live band. Very annoying, but they eventually eliminated one source of music, don't remember which. I also think for the price of the seafood charcuterie, the tuna, shrimp and salmon should have some kind of condiment besides a sweet jam. Overall, it was a great experience, but I expected more from the meal considering the amount of money I spent.

    The servings are microscopic. The portion size would not satisfy a small child's appetite much less a grown person. The prices are shocking for Columbia, SC. We paid 50 bucks for 2 tiny salads with a small amount of chicken. We will not go back.
