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!

This place is a requirement to eat at everytime I am in Milwaukee. Absolutely the best barbeque in the Midwest!

Gave it a second chance last nite and unfortunately it'll be our last. Cozy joint with nice atmosphere but a bit too dark for my old eyes to read the menu through the worn plastic slip covers. Because the first visit was a bit disappointing with full dinner plates, we opted for sandwiches this time. I had the pulled pork and my wife had the brisket. Same as last time. They forgot to add salt or anything that resembled flavor to the meat. Both the pork and brisket had no taste whatsoever. It was tender, but without any hint of flavor, what's the sense? Every bite required a very generous squirt of bbq sauce to the point of you were just tasting... bbq sauce. The side of slightly overdone thick homemade chips also had no salt, which made them... again... tasteless. The previous time we were there I had the brisket plate and except for one small portion of the plate, it was extremely dry. I would have rated the place a one except I like dark places and they've got that part down (also good blues music). Sorry guys.

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!!!

Took my parents for brunch and it was all or our first time there. Service was outstanding and the food was incredible. We had the pulled chicken salad, the biscuits and gravy and pulled pork and sausage. It was all really good. I will be going back as often as possible.

We went there last Saturday and were seated in a very timely manner. Our server was Sally, who was awesome. She was very attentive and suggested the smoked chicken entree. The chicken was very tender and had a great taste. We also got the chicken sandwich and the pulled pork nachos, both of which were very good. She also suggested the cinammon roles which we got and eat the next day. They were still fresh and delectable.
