Food was great. Service was excellent. Worth the trip to Stouffville. The Tomahawk steak (special pre order) was the best steak of any kind that I've ever had (so far). Flavorful throughout and done just right, tender and moist. They have a special way of slow cooking it - whatever it is, it works!!! I'm going back for sure. More...

I celebrated my PhD yesterday in this excellent restaurant. happy to tell that we had a brilliant evening and the place was clearly the reason for this successful celebration. The team collaborated in a gorgeous manner, the meals were delicious and my buddies were so thrilled. We shall surely return for more celebrations. Thank you very much. More...

I used the Smokery for a birthday party on a Saturday night. Chris was very accommodating and helped me turn my idea into reality. The venue is perfect for hosting fun and intimate gatherings. I would absolutely recommend it. The drinks were well poured and the appetizers and sliders were made fresh and were quite enjoyable. My guests had an amazing time which was the goal of the event. I particularly appreciated the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. Their customer service made all the difference! More...

We went to the Smokery yesterday for lunch, what a great experience and even better food! Chris (our server and maybe the owner? ) provided excellent service and was exceptional in his engagement with our 3.5 year old! If he isn't the owner I'd be surprised because it sure felt like we were being served by someone who truly Valued our visit and experience while we were there!On to the food! I had a watermelon and goat cheese mousse salad that was the perfect expression of summer! Flavour and presentation totally on point. My husband had a special - a homemade baconator which he loved, the house smoked bacon was the best he'd ever had and the two patties were juicy and perfectly seasoned! Our daughter ordered the spaghetti and meatballs from the kids menu - and she ate it all (if you knew her you'd know this is a BIG deal). All in all a really great experience from the food to the service. Even when Chris got busy (I think he was the only server on) he went above and beyond our expectations and made sure to take care of our daughter whenever she needed more apple juice (again if you knew her you'd know this is a BIG deal). Will be returning for many more meals - thank you to Chris and his kitchen team for another unforgettable meal! More...

This place is great. Chris is warm and welcoming. Makes a great rye Manhattan with house made maraschino cherries. The food is phenomenal - fresh, house made and always delicious. This has been our go to place, since it's opening, for everything from a 'let's go out for dinner' to having lunch with friends and our date nights and celebrations. We have never been disappointed and his staff are an extension of himself. Everyone is super knowledgeable about food and drink selection and what pairs well.  Never have I been more impressed with a restaurant. We will always come back to see what you do next.

A friendly, welcoming space with great service.Our table had the brisket, carnitas, honey chicken, and spaghetti (kids, right? !).Flavours were just right. Not overwhelming but not too subtle, either. And the crisp on the chicken!Everyone enjoyed their meal and we're already talking about going back.Definitely recommend checking it out. More...

Love this barbeque joint. Our favourite dishes are their fried chicken, and beef brisket! Only 4 stars though since it was a bit of a miss last time we went. Had the duck confit lemon pasta (seasonal dish) and the dish was a bit blend. The fried chicken was a bit under seasoned, still crispy and juicy though! Will still go back. More...

We celebrated my father’s birthday here and it could not have gone more smoothly. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The food was perfect (most of the guests emailed me after just to talk about how amazing the food was). They put together a buffet dinner of fried chicken, brisket, roast carrots and squash, corn bread, Caesar salad and a penne pasta. Everyone was stuffed and happy by the time we were done eating! The atmosphere was relaxed yet elegant. Stouffville is lucky to have such gem! More...

I took my girl friend out for lunch and it was spectacular! She ordered the roasted pear salad with pulled chicken and I had the 16-hour smoked Brisket sandwich. MY GOODNESS... meat was so tender and smokey - I don't think I spoke much during lunch because we were so busy divulging the delicious plates of food. I am definitely going back to try the smoked wings and ribs :) More...

Just celebrated my 50th with Chris and the staff at the Smokery! We’ve celebrated several life defining moments there. ..it’s that kind of place. We always eat family style here, sharing so as to be able to get a taste of all the bountiful goodness! Their Caesar is one of my favourites anywhere. Their smoked wings are second to none. Try to cauliflower too...just a beautiful marriage of flavours. Their brisket and honey fried chicken are culinary staples. You really just can’t go wrong! And all of this is before Chris comes by your table to make a personal connection! The man is doing what he was made to do! His cocktail menu is spectacular and his knowledge of bourbon is a joy as well. Go and enjoy...you’ll be glad you did! More...

I dined at the Smokery for the first time last night, with friends who live in Stouffville, I wouldn’t have know such a lovely restaurant exists otherwise. The ambience was great, casual elegant, classy and yet very simple; there was a group in a partitioned private area, other diners were families & couples. Service was great, but what was most impressive was the food ....... absolutely delicious. We ordered the fried cauliflower, crab salad, pan seared ricotta gnocchi, smoked pulled pork, corn bread, maple baked beans and shared them amongst us. Honestly, everything was good tried all 3 items on their dessert menu, again, pleasantly surprised! I do not consider myself a foodie, but I do know good food when I taste them, so do give this place a try, it’s worth the drive! More...

Everything thing I tried was tasty. They were out of a couple of menu items we tried ordering, but that's normal at BBQ places. I was a bit put off by the nickel and diming for every substitution. I get that things cost money, but there's also a level of reasonableness expected. More...

Modern atmosphere, excellent service. Order a customize combo lunch which comprise of 1/2 rack of ribs, a honey fried chicken thigh (perfectly crispy skin and just the right amount of sweetness, meat is juicy and well seasoned) whch is their signature dish, slices of coffee coated brisket, corn bread, cole slaw, pickles, and the bake beans which taste out of this world, that the owner graciously put together as its not on the lunch menu. The ribs have a good char and taste good. The brisket is melt in yourmouth but need slghtly more seasoning or bbq sauce. I am looking forward to my next visit.The combo and the house special ice green tea comes with tax to $36. Very reasonable price. More...

We visit this place once in a while after falling in love with the delicate food and.. the personal service. Each meal is a culinary trip to another part of world of taste. Today we enjoyed the Soup of the Day... a special mix of tastes of calif lower mesh and... A plate of oysters that tasted even better than the looks... and...a steak out of this world...bitting Keg and the likes... Great enjoyable trip from routine More...

Been eating at The Smokery for some time now. The friendly servers and great seasonal menu keeps me coming back! Not to mention this is the ONLY place in GTA to enjoy a properly made classic cocktail as the owner Chris has a real passion and knowledge in mixology. Weather you want to sit at the bar and enjoy a nice craft beer or bring the family in for a family dinner The Smokery will fit your needs. The comfy atmosphere and decor compliments the menu very well. Can't wait to visit the restaurant soon for the new fall menu! More...

B
23 July 2018

Had their coffee beef brisket. Everything in that dish tasted amazing! The brisket itself was tender and juicy. Usually I'm hesitant to eat bbq food as I always find the meat on the drier side. Anyways, they had corn bread that was moist and coleslaw that tasted light and refreshing. If it helps, my dad couldn't stop stealing food off my dish and repeatedly kept telling my mom and I how delicious this dish was. Would love to come back again to try other things on their menu.

Awesome place to grab dinner and enjoy a evening out. Was there for dunner and the food was pretty great. Had the pulled pork dinner and the sauce on it was very well done. Usually when I get pulled pork at other places, the sauce is over powering but here at the Smokery the sauce was toned down and it was almost creamy and delicious at that. Quite impressed with the owner’s, Chris, knowledge of scotch and his selection there. He also host a scotch tasting every last Thursday of the month where he does a blind tasting for his guest. Looking forward to trying other things on the menu. Glad I work so close to it. More...

What to say...had another great dinner here and went today because it was our anniversary. From the service to the dessert everything was spot on. My husband's ribs and fried chicken were amazing and the house made bbq sauce was delicious. My daughter left nothing on her plate which consisted of 2 slider and fries, and she commented on the fact that you guys make the best Shirley Temple she has ever had. I had the gnocchi and let me tell you it was the best. We don't go out often but when we do we do come here because I know they do things well, they make anything  they can in house (like I strive to do) and Chris and his staff are warm welcoming people!! Thanks for making our anniversary special!! More...

We were in the area for the holiday season, and we headed here for dinner. What a nice little space!The decor is upscale but welcoming, and the service was quite attentive, that may be partially because it wasn't very busy the day of our visit. They have a nice beer selection of mostly local micros. We started out with some duck confit poutine, which was really lovely, with a nice gravy and a lot of fresh cheese curds.I also had the honey fried chicken, which had a kind of small sized chicken, but the chicken was high quality and really tasty overall. Definitely a tasty place, and a nice addition to Souffville! More...

Modern & Cozy | Craft Beer | Whiskeys & Scotches | BBQ | Limited SeatingKitchen closes at 9pm but bar can open longer if you request it. Little cozy restaurant seats about 40 in the front end but has private room.Street parking available, no private lot from them.They also have a wide selection of whiskeys and scotches. The owner also mentioned they do whiskey tastings every month.Roasted bone marrow $11It was good, comes also with kale chips but wasn't mind blowing.Coffee beef brisket $21 Really tender, definitely a recommended dish. Comes with mash potatoes but may not be enough for an average growing man. (My friends had to order more)Honey fried chicken $16Generous portioned plate, comes with nicely seasoned fries. The chicken was moist and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Definitely another recommended dish.Pork ribs rack $21It was unfortunately drier and harder than I expected. It was not fall-of-the-bone ribs and it was a bit burnt. The cabbage-slaw it came it didn't have much flavour to it although it was a nice portion. For this price I would have chosen the brisket if I had known.Coffee banana lava cake $6It was not lava-y at all. No spill once I cut in. It was okay.Spiced bourbon caramel cake $6It was nice but nothing too fancy.Coffee creme bruleee $6This was good, the flavour and texture of the filling and the crust was perfect.Overall, I'd definitely come back and give it a second try.

The food is very very good! The restaurant  decor and atmosphere is clean and pretty. I'm not a big meat person but the coffee brisket I loved! Everything on that dish was good: the cole slaw, the corn bread! The boyfriend had the fried honey chicken (spicy) and it was really good too. The chicken is moist on the inside and very crispy on the outside. The corn that came with it was very tasty as well! I didn't get to try the dessert because I had to leave early, but my sister had the crime brûlée and she said it was amazing! Will definitely go back! More...

About a year and a half ago a friend and I got takeout from The Smokery for the first time. We took it back to his place and proceeded to have one of the most memorable chicken dishes that we'd had to date. After all that time we're finally back at The Smokery to order that same dish, but to experience it fresh! Here's how it went.The Smokery is a mid sized restaurant along Main Street Stouffville. It has a somewhat upscale bar/restaurant feel that still manages to maintain a relaxed and inviting vibe. They have two main dining rooms, one for typical small groups, and one for large groups (I assume).The dish that has had my friend and I talking about it for years is their Honey Fried Chicken. With this dish you'll get three pieces of chicken, coleslaw, corn on the cob, cornbread, and pickles. The type of chicken that you'll be served is house brined dark meat, i.e. drums and thighs. Things start getting special on two fronts. First of all, they brush the chicken with this irresistable warm honey glaze, that satisfies your savoury-sweet desires to the nth degree. But then things get a little silly when you bite through that impossibly crispy chicken skin. You may have asked yourself, "I wonder how crispy chicken can be while still being desirable?". Well The Smokery has found that sweet spot, and serves you up pretty damn succulent meat at the same time.Combined with the other pieces on the plate, you'll be presented with an extremely intelligently thought out meal. The corn on the cob is gently buttered with a fitting sprinkle paprika to tie it in with the savoury theme. On the other hand, the cornbread takes a step to the sweet side of things, and the coleslaw provides the opportunity for a change of pace, but isn't so tangy that it departs from the rest of the meal.This chicken is boss. Combined with a cool environment, reasonable pricing, and good people, I felt compelled to give a 5 star review. That being said, I know nothing about the rest of their food. If you're in Stouffville, stop by for some great dining. More...

Took the family here for dinner on New Year's Eve. I checked Yelp and the Google reviews and they all seemed quite positive. I have to say that I wasn't disappointed. The kids each had the Mac & Cheese, which came with fries. They loved it. I had a couple bites as well, the parmasean cheese really makes it! My wife and I each had a main course, which were both really good. For dessert, I had the lava cake, which was OK, and my wife had the ice cream sandwich, which was amazing. The cookies were warm, like they just came out of the oven. So good. All in all, it was a great meal with really prompt, friendly service. I totally recommend, and will be returning in the future.

23 July 2017

Update: My second trip to this restaurant made up for my gnocchi wait. And boy was it worth it. So I didn't get to try their vegetable gnocchi but who cares! I had their butternut squash gnocchi tonight and it was delish! The dressing that comes with it definately takes the gnocchi to another level. I opted out of the goat cheese and had no regrets! Jay had their smoked lamb tortillas and loved every bite of it. I'm looking forward to trying more vegetarian friendly dishes they'll offer in the future. This is definately a top contender for Stouffville dining. Previous review: This review comes a few weeks late. I second what Mr. Caguiat had to say about the vibe at the Smokery. This was the first restaurant I visited in York Region. When I decided to check out the Smokery, I had eyes set on the veg. gnocchi. Unfortunately for me, it sells out fast. When I asked about other veg. options the waiter did not know. The chef came out, we had a great chat and he offered to make me a dish. I was content, but not satisfied. My company ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork and had no complaints. I appreciate the effort made by the chef but would look to see more veg. friendly dishes. I get it, its a "smoker kitchen" but vegetarians gotta eat too! More...

I recently had my son's Baptism luncheon at The Smokery in Stouffville and it was AMAZIIIING! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would give 10 1. Staff is so amazing. Chris is very much accommodating and knows what he's doing. He even helped with the flowers for the decorations. Even though I was late getting there that evening and he had to stay later than expected. He helped and there was no feeling of being rushed to get it done. Such an amazing person. 2. THE FOOD.....There aren't really any words that can describe the food other than fanfriggentastic!! So good that even my father (who is the pickiest person I know (75yrs))ate all of it AND said was the first time ever that he ate food without putting salt. On top of all that, I ended up with a migraine after church...ugh not fun at all. Took me right out of the party, but Chris offered me some Advil and even made me a drink that ended being the savior of the day. It settled my stomach and helped ease the pain in my head. So I was able to at least say goodbye to my guests. Overall, I would definitely recommend to ANYONE to give it a try. I promise you wouldn't be disappointed. I will definitely be going back. Probably this week for that matter!! More...

Just ate here for the first time and it was really good! Prices are really good too. We got an appetizer, two entrees, side and dessert for 50 bucks. Was totally pleased with the price.I had the chorizo burger, great flavour! The pulled pork burger was yummy too. The slaw was a nice added crunch on top. The cornbread is actually the best cornbread I've ever tried. Not saying I'm an expert in cornbread or anything but I couldn't stop eating this one. It had a nice grit to it that I enjoyed! We had the chocolate banana cake for dessert and that was sooo good. It comes with a little mint sprig on top and it was such a nice added flavour to the rich chocolate. I would 100% come back here and would recommend this place to anyone who's in the mood for BBQ and BBQ sandwich!! More...

The food at The Smokery is fantastic! The Mac and Cheese is to die for and the wings are amazing. We held my daughters baptism there and EVERYONE in my big Italian family enjoyed everything from the gourmet Deviled Eggs to the Coffee Rub Brisket. Thanks for opening such an amazing place in Stouffville!! More...

We just had the most delicious dinner at the Smokery! What a fantastic place to eat. The owner Chris has done an amazing job of creating a unique menu full of such flavorful dishes. I was so excited to know that their fried dishes are gluten free and the best I have ever had! Absolutely LOVED the fried cauliflower and the honey fried chicken. Thank you Chris and to our server Bailey who was so friendly and welcoming! Oh and one more thing....the Caesars are excellent made with tequila! � More...

What a pleasant surprise! Usually underwhelmed by restaurants that smoke meat ... Not today! Popped in for lunch and had smoked wings (YUM! ) and a beef brisket sandwich (Rich flavour, perfectly balanced and tender as hell!). If you're in Stouffville or close by, you will not regret eating here :-) More...

A small hip restaurant in a growing community (Stouffville) with friendly staff. Probably a 3.5-4.0 Stars but I will up rate this place because it isn't a 3. Came here for a lunch session because the Yelp pictures of this place seems interesting. When I got here the staff was very friendly, but the restaurant only had half of the seating open so it looks very small inside because the door was closed to the other room. Did I say the staff was friendly? Everyone who entered the restaurant seem to know each other? In terms of the food, they had a lunch menu, a fix price lunch sample, and also a kids menu! The lunch sandwiches with fries were around $12-13 but the fix course was sandwich and soup and dessert for $15 which seems like a little better deal. I got the beef brisket sandwich, it was pretty good but I got to say of all the food we ordered the quantity of it seem to be a little bit on the small size which is why I got to give it a little lower rating. If you were to get a dessert, you must get the cookie! Warm, fresh, and soft chocolate chip cookie.... so good..... *drool* More...

About a year and a half ago a friend and I got takeout from The Smokery for the first time. We took it back to his place and proceeded to have one of the most memorable chicken dishes that we'd had to date. After all that time we're finally back at The Smokery to order that same dish, but to experience it fresh! Here's how it went.The Smokery is a mid sized restaurant along Main Street Stouffville. It has a somewhat upscale bar/restaurant feel that still manages to maintain a relaxed and inviting vibe. They have two main dining rooms, one for typical small groups, and one for large groups (I assume).The dish that has had my friend and I talking about it for years is their Honey Fried Chicken. With this dish you'll get three pieces of chicken, coleslaw, corn on the cob, cornbread, and pickles. The type of chicken that you'll be served is house brined dark meat, i.e. drums and thighs. Things start getting special on two fronts. First of all, they brush the chicken with this irresistible warm honey glaze, that satisfies your savoury-sweet desires to the nth degree. But then things get a little silly when you bite through that impossibly crispy chicken skin. You may have asked yourself, "I wonder how crispy chicken can be while still being desirable?". Well The Smokery has found that sweet spot, and serves you up pretty damn succulent meat at the same time.Combined with the other pieces on the plate, you'll be presented with an extremely intelligently thought out meal. The corn on the cob is gently buttered with a fitting sprinkle paprika to tie it in with the savoury theme. On the other hand, the cornbread takes a step to the sweet side of things, and the coleslaw provides the opportunity for a change of pace, but isn't so tangy that it departs from the rest of the meal.This chicken is boss. Combined with a cool environment, reasonable pricing, and good people, I felt compelled to give a 5 star review. That being said, I know nothing about the rest of their food. If you're in Stouffville, stop by for some great dining. More...

4.5 stars. A very cozy restaurant on Main Street Stouffville. Love the homey wooden decor :) Took clients out for a late lunch and we were very pleased with our experience at The Smokery! The fall menu was very appealing. We wanted to try everything on the menu lol.I really enjoyed my Bourbon Bramble ($11) - it is a sweet cocktail made from my favourite duo bourbon and elderflower liquor ^^ The Beau's Lug Tread ($7.25/pint) crafted beer was very tasty too. My clients ordered coffee ($3) and refill was on the house, thanks!I ordered the 1/2 rack cola braised ribs ($21) to share, and added 2 pieces of their well known honey fried chicken ($5)! It also came with house made BBQ sauce, and cornbread, cabbage slaw & fries on the side. I love cornbread and this one was quite satisfying!For dessert, we shared the apple creme brulee with actual stewed apples ($6) and the spiced bourbon caramel cake with vanilla bean ice cream ($6). They were both delicious and not overly sweet, which is good! The Lindt chocolate smore is more rich and sweet if you crave for something sweeter ^^I will definitely come back again. Price is on the higher side but with the quality of the food, I don't mind it as much. Highly recommend this to those in the area looking for good eats, and those coming from afar and want a taste of what Stouffville has to offer!P.S. There is a separate private room to host parties too! Perfect for the holiday season and celebrations! More...

The Smokery is an absolutely amazing place. Honestly, a true gem to the Stouffville community. Your experience will start with a very classy urban-esque atmosphere, reflective of a downtown Ossington Liberty Village hot spot. That's just the beginning of this city-suburban kitchen & bar. Having a high expectancy for great service (which really is just a characteristic of being a great human being) wherever I go, I HAVE to mention just how fantastic of an experience I've had here time and time again. In fact, So amazing that I decided to take a few minutes out of my absurdly busy schedule just to let the public know just how great the staff is. Kind, honest, helpful, suggestive, and willing.....And all this with a smile!!Although the place is gorgeous enough to dine with a collard shirt and blazer, the comfort factor from the staff has me confident enough to show up in cargo shorts with socks and sandals and not feel judged or unappreciated. But what's a restaurant/bar review without a review about the food and beverage ... ......5 STAR People!!!! No I'm not a foodie, a food-adventurist, nor am I biased to a particular culture of food. I'm just a person who enjoys GREAT FOOD. .... And man this place has great food. As the seasons change, so do vegetables and fruits, that's why I'm always excited to see a refreshed menu at a restaurant.... Makes sense doesn't it?The Smokery does just that. Light and refreshing food in the spring, sweet and ripe tastes in the summer, and warm and comforting foods through Stouffvilles cold "true north" months. This smokehouse really has the uptown-upscale food vibe really figured out! ....and for you scotch, bourbon, whiskey, or martini drinkers out there...... I CHALLENGE you to find a better stocked bar AND someone who also knows how to serve it. And if you have a family like myself, they love kids and cater to their every complaint.....I mean....desire. ;)Us Stouffvillians deserve a place like this. A place that's unique, relaxing, and trendy enough for us to feel like it was a great night out. After all, we didn't move out of Markham just so that we can drive back their every time we want a nice place to eat. The Longos grocery drive is already starting to feel like a commute..... But worth every minute isn't it? :)Anyway, that's my review. Go try it out...enjoy yourself and don't forget to show appreciation when deserved. More...

Finally came back after an amazing yelp elite event here and I was not disappointed like I usually am when I revisit places that I have high hopes for. Again, I really love the atmosphere and decor of this place. It reminds me of a classy and clean home in the woods. The owner is amazingly nice and came back several times to make sure we were okay and if we needed water refills. It's nice to see the owner give such effort into running their restaurant, instead of the usual owners that sit back and watch their servers go crazy over a busy restaurant. There were only 2-3 other tables at the time, and it was almost time for closing time and the owner was still working hard. Kudos, Chris!The drinks are a little pricey but the food prices are on par with any other western restaurant. I was planning to go to the gym after so I didn't stuff myself with the amazing honey fried chicken that I tried at the previous event. I had the soup of the day, which was squash something.. LOL, I don't remember but I remember it being absolutely DELICIOUS. So hearty and homemade, I loved it! For my meal, I had a caesar salad, which was the BEST caesar ever. Dressing is very light, it's peppered to perfection, the croutons are crunchy and delicious AND the bacon bits that were in it were almost as thick and big as the croutons!! What?!?!? Amazingness. My friend had this sausage dish and the sausage was HUGE. I was so surprised that I blurted out "wow that's a huge sausage", which got a few laughs from my friend and the owner. My friend said that was the best sausage he has ever eaten, and it was amazing indeed. It tasted like it was prepared in kitchen instead of buying it from a meat shop. It also came with 'delicious' coleslaw (quotations because I didn't try it, and I don't like coleslaw) and the yummy cornbread. I'm DEFINITELY coming back to try more food here, even though I don't live in the area. Smokery is the gem of main street stouffville. More...

The Smokery gets a lot of things right. I gushed about the menu to friends after grabbing lunch one day (mushroom soup w/ Parmesan), so we all (8 + a toddler) went for dinner. As of this writing they're serving a Summer menu - mains include coffee beef brisket, BBQ pulled pork, honey fried chicken, house made chorizo... a few started with poutine (why yes, you can top it with pulled pork), and the table got a mix of brisket, chicken and ribs, pulled pork and porchetta. Pretty much all entrees come with cornbread, cabbage slaw, fries and/or mac 'n cheese or mashed potatoes. I got the pulled pork, which was tender and delicious and had just the right amount of BBQ sauce; everyone was thoroughly impressed with their mains. While the beer selection isn't extensive, it's certainly quality over quantity. On tap you'll find Beau's Lug Tread and a seasonal selection from Beau's, Amsterdam and Nickel Brook. The back bar is great as well. OH I almost forgot dessert: creme brulee is on the menu, and while it's usually my go-to, there is a S'MORE dessert. Yes. Graham cracker crumble crust, chocolate ganache middle, toasted marshmallow top. SO GOOD. Our halfling guest (the toddler) was quite pleased with his fries as well! If I have one tiny complaint it's that the menu could use more vegetables and greens.Service was great - very prompt and professional but also warm and friendly. The owner Chris looked after us and clarified any questions, give us some info on the food prep, and took the time to go through the whole menu with a friend who has a gluten allergy. The decor is well thought out without being over the top. Understated and casual but refined. The location is also excellent, right on Stouffville Main with ample parking across from the GO stop.I and my group were thoroughly impressed with and will most definitely be back. More...

Second best burger in the area. Sorry Baldwin still wins for me. However this is better than my last year favourite Smash Kitchen and Bar. The service for a single server is very well done. He knows the food and drinks (though I didn't have any drinks. ) I can overhear the explanations and he knows where the components come from including the maple syrup that comes from a neighbouring supplier that is used with their bacon. The burger is a unique blend of pulled pork with a juicy beef patty and aioli sauce that ties them all together. It is presented very well and does not look like it was just thrown together into a big blob. The flavour mix was well balanced between sweet salty and sourness. I split the burger with the mrs. so I can try out one other thing i saw which was the pork belly appetizer. The smoked pork belly appetizer was very flavourful. Since it had some other things with it including apple and some green thingy which was apparently Brussel sprouts after I checked the menu. The Brussel sprouts were cooked so well I didn't even realize I was eating that yucky vegetable. The flavour mix was complicated and fun for me. The sprouts probably added that very slight hint of bitterness which improves on the taste. However the burger is still well more value for the $. Since I am on a diet in a way I cannot grab the other thing that I was eyeing on the menu. But I will definitely try the pulled pork with corn bread and Mac and cheese plate. More...

Came here on Saturday night, and it wasn't busy. Lots of free parking everywhere, in the back lot or on the street.The decor of this place is really nice and modern and service was friendly and quick. They have Beau's and a few seasonal beers on tap which is a nice touch. I ordered the spicy fried chicken and was pleasantly surprised! So crispy on the outside and nice and juicy inside, without feeling too greasy. The coleslaw was only alright though. Cornbread was good! Other dishes that my party had were the pulled pork and mac and cheese and the cheeseburger (which was seasonal). I didn't get to try any, but I was told the pulled pork wasn't anything to write home about, and the mac and cheese was too fancy. But it's all personal preference. Fries were delicious also.Overall a very good experience. I would come back given the chance. More...

1st time there ,service was good until they ran out of burgers ten minutes after my wife ordered hers ,very dissapointing , we shared a ceasar salad , it was excellent ,fresh ,my smoked sausage with mashed very good , wife ended up having a side of mac&cheese she said was good , the waitress was really good ,but the manager should have stepped up and apologized himself about running out of burgers himself ,seeing he was only 6 ft away from us at the bar , we will go back but also , get rid of those crappy chairs there very uncomfortable will recommend to friends .

Enjoyed a lunch with a buddy at The Smokery. I really like the decor which is faintly upscale without being overwhelming. We selected from the Stouffvillicious menu to just try things out . As it turned, we both chose the soup and brisket sandwich with the chocolate chip cookie dessert. The soup and the sandwich were both outstanding and as I am not a chocolate chip cookie fan, I took that home for my daughter who assures me that it was excellent. Hard to believe that they are three great restaurants side by side in downtown Stouffville. I will be back to sample more of the menu. More...

We decided to head over to a Stouffville during "Stouffvillicious" Days to try a new restaurant, and we were quite pleased with what we found! During Stouffvillicious at lunchtime, for $15 you could have the daily house soup...we had sweet potato squash, drizzled with balsamic reduction, followed by a choice of house smoked meat sandwich...we had a porcetta and a brisket sandwich, followed by a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie. It was all delicious! They also had a nice selection of teas to choose from, which we appreciated, along with a well-stocked bar. Their dinner menu for Stouffvillicious was very interesting...and we plan to return soon! More...

As a Vegan I wasn't sure what to expect. With a name like The Smokery I was only expecting everything to be focused around smoked meat. I initially came in to warm up and have a drink. I was pleasantly surprised by the selection.  I had a Portobello mushroom dish over green lentils and half a baby grilled Romaine  which was wonderful!  Im so happy there are places that cater to a non meat diet. Thanks! More...

I'm so excited to write a Stouffville review that my hands are literally shaking. Something is happening in Stouffville folks, the community i growing and with that a trickle of new cool businesses are beginning to take root - Enter, The Smokery. Located about 500 m east of 9th Line along Main St Stouffville, it's next to two of the towns already shining stars (Fish Bone and Red Bulb).Looking at the outside, you might think this is going to be a rough and rugged smokehouse, well son you'd be wrong. While this place isn't rugged, it certainly isn't pretentious. It's a perfect balance of elegant and rustic. My kinda spot.I had a chance to chat with the owner/head chef who told me of his storied history working and running kitchens in Toronto for years. And now opening his own place in S-ville, all his wildest (and let's face it my wildest) dreams are coming true.First off the menu. I got a look at the lunch menu and it's mostly sandwiches that are more than reasonable in price. I went with the smoked Turkey sandwich on an Onion Bun. Holy Hell - the Turkey was brined before it was cooked and so it was so moist and flavourful, also the slices were so thick and the portion was huge! Delicious!I also understand that there is a brunch service on the weekend that includes buffet and champagne cocktails? HWHATTT?!?!?!? Get me up early for a drive to Stouffville to have brunch and cocktails anytime. The Owner also informed me that because their spot is a little better decorated than some smoke houses, that the misconception is that they are expensive, when IN FACT, according to chef there isn't an entree that exceeds $20.Ok ok ok... now my fav part, here comes my fave part! The BAR! The Smokery has my dream back bar, equipped with only the highest quality cocktail spirits around, and guess what? The same guy cooking your dinner is also a huge cocktail nerd like ME, so he's crafting amazing classic cocktails using premium spirits. AND to add to that wonder of his bar, he's also supporting a local craft brewery (Red Falcon) on tap in a couple of varieties. I didn't get to sample the cocktails or dinner menu, but you can bet I'll be back and bringing my wallet! Oh and for those drivers, parking can be found around back, at the GO station OR on the street.Eatcrest Out! More...

We had an amazing meal at The Smokery Kitchen and Bar. This is a great family restaurant. We started with the roasted marrow which was buttery deliciousness. Then we had the coffee brisket, pork ribs and honey fried chicken (a big hit with our 3 Y.O. and 1 Y.O.). The sides of coleslaw, fries, and corn bread were the perfect accompaniment. Ambience is great...bright, spacious with family friendly washrooms. Service was excellence. Will definitely visit again. More...

Very nice! The Smokery is what happens when BBQ goes a bit upscale. We tried a Caesar salad with real house-made bacon, and a roasted pear and blue cheese salad, both quite good. For mains we had the lamb stew and the pulled pork plate- slow cooked, tender and delicious. Servings were a reasonable (not too big) size and good value with most entrées about $20. Service was prompt and friendly but could have been a little more attentive- servers should check to see if diners need seasoning (no salt or pepper on the tables), if the meals are satisfactory or if we want another drink. Likewise a plate of cornbread or rolls would have been nice while we waited for our meals. Little things, but things offered routinely in most restaurants. In all, a nice spot, good food, fair prices- we will definitely return. More...

Had a very enjoyable night. Very friendly staff and was surprisingly kid friendly (we brought an 8 month old).  Food was top notch.   The pork belly app was the highlight for me. Crazy good.   Also had the bone marrow. Surprisingly not that heavy compared to other places I've had marrow. Still tasted great. We tried the fried chicken (spicy version) and it was tasty. Kinda reminded me of giant Kung pow chicken. Very crispy!  Also had the chorizo sausage. Salty, spicy, yummy. Will go back to try the rest of their menu! More...

Newly opened for about a month now I believe the person who served us is the owner of this place, ChrisSuper friendly and easy to have a conversation withWhen you go for smoked BBQ meat you might not be picturing fancy decor or eating with a knife and fork but this is what The Smokery Kitchen and Bar is offering. A classy meal with even a wine list but served up with BBQ smoked meat. Not what I was expecting when I came here but if the food is good then that's all that really matters to me.Coffee Beef brisket meal $20 - hands down the BEST beef brisket that I have had so far. The meat was juicy, flaky, tender all at the same time and had great flavour. Comes with cornbread (really sweet and yummy), coleslaw and mash potato (pretty disappointed with these two sides. It was just too simple and lacked flavour)BBQ Pulled pork meal $18 - meat is good but I'm use to eating my pulled pork in sandwich form so eating it by itself was a bit weird. Comes with mac & cheese, coleslaw and cornbread. The mac & cheese was good but once again I though it lacked something. It just looked like a simple mac & cheese that I could make at home. Needed some colour like green onions, bacon bites, anything really to make it stand out from being a regular mac & cheese.I find that the two meals above were a bit on the pricy side for what you get. I thought the portions were a bit on the small side. If my sister didn't give me some of her meal then I'm pretty sure I would have left still hungry. Lindt chocolate cheese cake with coffee syrup $6. This cheese cake was simply amazing. I was sold when he mentioned the word Lindt. You can really taste the Lindt chocolate too. The coffee syrup added that extra level of uniqueness and awesomeness to the whole package. Because of the beef brisket and the Lindt cheese cake I can see myself coming back really soon to try the wings and beef ribs. Just too curious what these might taste like. More...

The food was amazing and very reasonably priced. I have never had such great macaroni and cheese as a side. The atmosphere was nice and not rushed. The ribs were delicious and cooked  perfectly. I will definitely be back to try more. Thx Chris. and Stephanie and especially the  chefs. More...

We found this restaurant on yelp and decided to give it a try. We loved everything about it! Service was great, the ambiance was awesome with a very clean and modern decor. The food was amazing, and was very decently priced. We ordered the pulled pork with Mac and cheese, and the pork ribs (the meat literally fell off the bone!) with brisket hash. Both meals were delicious. If you're ever in Stouffville , definitely check this place out. More...

We tried the brunch today and it was fantastic! The prime rib was melt in your mouth; the bacon was crispy and addictive, the smoked salmon was delicate and devine! Basically, everything that was on the brunch buffet was delicious. We'll be back to have dinner soon! More...

I have just been to the smokery with my wife and three kids. Really glad I did. It's rare that I go to a restaurant and find it difficult to order due to everything sounding great. We all sampled something different and each dish was even better than it sounded on the menu. Delicious! I also need to comment on the beer quality, a real treat to have local beers to try instead of the usual Canadian or bud light I have come to expect. We will be visiting the smokery again very soon and I would recommend it to anyone. More...

Had an opportunity to have dinner at The Smokery and the food and service was nothing short of exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the honey fried chicken, beef ribs, and the sides that came with the entrees. The price was very reasonable as well and I would highly recommend this establishment and will be back very soon. More...
