Had a decent burger at the smokestack bar and grill while staying in Camden. Unfortunately they seemed to be quite understaffed, as I saw only one waitress in the dining area. She did her best, actually a really good job considering the workload, but she...More

We don't usually frequent sports bars. We've been to the Smokestack 3 times in the last couple of weeks to watch the US Open and have been pleasantly surprised. Don't expect much but pub fare - having said that, the nachos and fries are really...More

The food was decent and the service was ok. Our server was the only one working and had a ton of tables. I thought she did a fantastic job considering how busy she was. The food left something to be desired but it was ok.

Nice view of the falls. Large group accommodated. Old mill interior, could have been warmer , bathroom extremely cold. Pleasant server. Pool tables, locals, sports on tv. Some unusual menu items, fried green beans, for example. Loud, casual, nice hangout.

Set on the falls of the Megunticook River in the old Knox Mill, Smokestack Grill is Camden’s best sports bar and grill. We offer a large menu, including pub fare, burgers, steaks, seafood, and delicious hand tossed pizzas. Our menu is complimented by the large bar and friendly staff. Stop by to dine with family, watch the game on one of our nine flat screen televisions, or enjoy live music with friends.
