As I said above, Smoky's Club, in my opinion ranks from average to not quite very good. The restaurant seems to consistently get excellent ratings but I'm not quite sure why. I suspect it is the aura or mystique that hangs over Smoky's. the decor is quite "funky" that does harken back to the old Wisconsin Supper Club days. I... More

The food here was great – we had the fish fry and hash browns. However, the service was perfunctory at best. Our server gave us no information about specials and had no clue as to any of the beers available. He was very rushed and didn’t really seem to care if things were all right with us. We felt like...

Excellent Cod and Perch. Get the full Smoky's experience at a very reasonable price. Bread, Vegetable Plate, Salad, Soup & the best tasting fish we have had in a long time. Best wait staff in the city. This is a true Wisconsin Supper Club.

Last Friday we had the fish fry. It was the best I've ever had a Smokey's Club. What ever they changed made a huge difference. The perch was delicious and the cod was perfect. The service was excellent. hats off to the outstanding fish fry! It was one of the best I've had in Dane county!

On November 4th, 2016 myself and 16 other family members met at Smokies for a family gathering. The initial service was adequate such as filling our water glasses and taking bar orders. The waiters obviously pushed their signature hash browns, but what they failed to tell is that they were served family style. A plate was set in front of... More

The steaks were dry and tasteless. Wait staff were clueless and tried to over charge us. The place looked like it was decorated by the visually impaired. Any decent Wisconsin supper club shouldn't run out of prime rib on a Saturday night.

Three ordered steak and were happy. I ordered vegetable stir fry with salad and was not. Being diabetic, I was surprised it was sweet (too sweet for me) and the vegetables were over cooked. It was served over a rice blend. My concern is that I don't care for rice and could not eat something that sweet. Luckily, the server... More

We loved our dinner at Smoky's Club. The atmosphere is old school supper club and the drinks are made just right. The Steak is the best, but I had the best walleye ever at this place. The servings are huge, and delicious, and the service was nice and relaxing. This is a good place to go to have a relaxing... More

I have eaten here on several occasions, consistently pleasing. The martinis are outstanding, if you care for one. Steak and seafood dinners are great. There are some interesting surprises, like the cottage cheese appetizer. Come for an evening of dining, relax, enjoy.

4 years at UW and never went to Smokys. This trip was with family and kids at first turned up noses. Decor probably hasn't changed since 70s but the vibe and service was great. Only order filet mignon and hash browns - both excellent. Start you off with cottage cheese (honestly) and croutons - add a delicious Bloody Mary It's... More
