Cozy spot serving slow-smoked barbecue meats & Southern-style sides in rustic environs.- Google

The atmosphere is really nice and homey, and the staff was very friendly. Had the brisket sandwich and the burnt ends (special on Weds it seems). Both were very well prepared and had great flavor. The available sides though didn't do a lot for me. I'm a Kansas City native, so I guess that I have certain expectations. No regular fries kinda bummed me out since I don't like sweet potato at all. The beans just had too many peppers for my tastes, but the kettle chips were great. Also, it's a bit pricey. $13+ for a pretty standard brisket sandwich is high in my experience, and the burnt ends were also costly for the serving size. I'll most likely go back, but I really need to figure out a side on their menu that will satisfy me.

So good! The decor, the smell, the friendly service was all really good. This is a special treat to have in Milwaukee. I had a brisket sandwich and it was tasty. They leave the sauce up to you, so it comes out dry which is a good call. They also give you a ridiculously huge cinnamon roll for free during brunch.

Smoke Shack has a delicious BBQ Seiten Sammie, great atmosphere and amazing live music. Oh, and they give you a huge cinnamon roll with brunch! I definitely can't wait to come back!

Great if you have never had real bbq. Drinks were okay but overall not worth it unless you just crawled it from under a rock

Amazing food. Can be a bit pricey but worth it. No reservations so think about the day you want to go and when to show up. During the summer the outdoor space lends itself to more guests without a wait. Otherwise try the bar seating. Parking as usually is horrible so plan for a few block walk or paying for a parking garage.

I love a place with good customer service. The staff seems genuinely happy to see you. The cutie patootie at the door has the best smile! Our waitress was attentive and quick. My only thing about this place is that I have been there several times and every time they have been out of ribs. I mean, the other food they have is great and I am glad I get to try the menu, but I would love to try their ribs since it's a bbq joint. I love all of the bacon things, too. Their desserts are phenomnomnom, but I am usually too full to get one.

I love the Shack! Great atmosphere and great music (blues + rock). But is is really small, especially in the winter season when it's only possible to sit inside. Anyway - The FOOD is DELICIOUS!!!

We ordered the Pork, Sausage and Brisket and it was ALL dry. The Coleslaw was tasteless and the Greens were gritty. We also ordered Mac and Cheese which wasn't good either.. We put BBQ sauce on it so it would taste better. They brought us new food which was better but still was disappointed. Will not go back!!!!!!
