Heard so much about this place. Decided to visit it with a friend on an early Saturday evening. We'd have to wait 15 minutes if we wanted a table indoors but since it wasn't cold outside, we opted for a table outdoors. It was peaceful and quiet, except for the noise from the pub across the road. We ordered baby pork ribs, chicken & biscuits, mac & cheese and a salad. The food certainly didn't disappoint us. It was sumptuous as expected. The staff was really friendly. He offered us a special Blue Smoke home-made spicy sauce, which wasn't too spicy but adds a tangy taste to the fried chicken when we tried it. Overall, each of us spent $40 which left us feeling really full and satisfied. If you're craving for some comfort food, Blue Smoke might be a good place to consider.

Superb food and staff. Went a few times on a recent trip to New York. Would highly recommend Blue Smoke for both food and drink. Also their Mac n Cheese might be the best I've ever eaten!

We ordered BBQ chicken with devil eggs, sausages and potato wedges as sides. They were all tasty. You won't be disappointed.

I came here for dinner with my sister since she loves ribs. We got the rib platter which had kansas style, memphis style, and texas style. We also got a side of macaroni and cheese and cornbread. The portions were pretty small compared to other BBQ places and the dishes were pretty pricey. Also, the ribs were dry so I had to put a lot of sauce in order to eat it. The service was friendly and attentive. However, I probably won't come back since it was pretty expensive for BBQ and the food wasn't great.

I have never had such good service in my life. The staff were friendly and pleasant but without being all syrupy sweet and in your face constantly. They were attentive and I honestly can not fault them at all. Now for the food... Absolutely gorgeous. We had been looking for a place to get good ribs and we were not disappointed. We had a rack of Kansas City ribs and the sample platter. I wasn't too thrilled by the chicken but the pulled pork and sausage were really nice. The spicy cheese fries were delicious but the sweet potato wedges were the best I've ever had. I'd have gone there just for them. All up for three of us with drinks, tax and tip we paid around $140 and all three of us could barely move we were so full. We definitely over ordered but it was delicious so who cares. I would definitely go again and recommend it.

Visited this restaurant during one of many NYC restaurant weeks and enjoyed pretty much everything I tried. However, I was shocked at how crowded this place was for a Tuesday night and glad that I had made reservations! For my meal I had the chipotle wings as an appetizer, KC spare ribs and apple crisp al a mode for dessert. The wings were served buffalo style with blue cheese dip and were pretty good. The ribs were a smoked type instead of the grilled type of rib I am used to typically. They were very meaty, moist and well seasoned but the sesame slaw side was not very good in my opinion...yuck! The dessert was also very good as well. My friend had the smoked sausage appetizer which was delicious and moist like the ribs. My experience at this restaurant was overall a pleasant one and I found the staff to be helpful as well as friendly.
