Danny Meyer and BBQ--food is great, service is great, ambiance is great. A perfect casual restaurant!

I'm no BBQ expert but I know good food and I've always had good meals at blue smoke. Ribs are good, pulled port is great, and even their seafood dishes are nice. Unlike other reviews, I think the service is excellent - fast, prompt, and quick to refill your drink (soda refills free). Not least, the place is a blast for larger groups. It's loud, you eat with your hands and people leave smiling.

Been there three times this year and i just keep going back for more. The ribs are great and the wings are too. Bourbon and beer lists are great.

The brisket was so hard and dry you have to use a steak knife to cut it. The Mint Juleps where made up of lots of sugar-water, mutilated mint leaves and little bourbon. If you have never had real B-B-Que then I guess you won?t know the difference.

After reading good reviews here, 3 friends and I gave it a try. The babyback ribs were not very good. They tasted like sawdust and their half rack portion was more like a 1/4 rack. The 2 of us that ordered them sent them back and asked for Kansas CIty ribs which the waitress said would be better. Not by much. The coleslaw was also poor. My friend ordered fried chicken, another disappointment, the mashed potatoes were mediocre, the chicken for the price they charge - tasteless and boring. Overall the experience here was unacceptable.

Great food, especially the sweet potato fries; kid friendly and exceptional service.

A bit more upscale than I believe BBQ should be, but the food is excellent and the waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. Try to the Love for Sale, a great lil cocktail with citron and passion fruit to start, but make sure to switch to their own Blue Smoke local brew with dinner. The sauces are spot on and I can't remember when I've had creamier mashed potatoes-- so light-- or mac n cheese! Definitely worth the trip.
