One of the few places open later on a Monday night and not disappointed. Decent portions, cool atmosphere, and fair prices. Liked the House sauce the best and enjoyed the Mac/Brisket sammich.

Terrible carryout experience. Wrong selections, food so salty it was inedible, meat was dry and under the portion size. Called and spoke to Tanner the shift manager about my concerns and was told the GM would call me. Almost a week later and no call.

Bottom line-small portion, terrible food, and high prices. Wouldn't go back or recommend. You want good bbq go to Iron Grate.

This is a cute little shack in downtown Milwaukee. When I say little I mean little. We were a party of 2 and were seated at a long table with 2 other parties. It was quite strange. It was super loud as the restaurant was packed. All that said the food was good. We got there a bit later and they were out of some items but what we had was good. The decor was amazing and I loved drinking out of mason jars!

Went for lunch. We are now going to Smoke Shack once a month. Can’t wait for March to end. I had the pulled pork sammich wit kettle chips. The sauces are
all delicious barbecue variations! The salads looked fantastic. Service was friendly and efficient. On the tables they have a card that tells you what your Blues Name is. Mine is “Lead Baby Jefferson”. Shhh!
