Casual and unpretentious dining that will hit the spot… accompanied by our American shakes, bourbons and sodas.

Kids are very welcome here – our impressive kids menu, giant outdoor blackboard and kids American DVD’S on screens around the restaurant are sure to keep the little ones entertained.

Great menu and great food. Come here often with business commitments but spent the weekend in Shrewsbury with my wife so couldn't miss the opportunity for her to sample. Another great meal

Really disappointed. We asked for booth style seating. Once again we were put on a table which was not booth style. I asked for a quietish spot we were put in the part where diners walked past to get to the bar area or came in first to be seated. Menu is not as good as it used to be. We were kept waiting at the bar till 7.40 despite booking for 7.30 arriving early and plenty of tables being available. We waited another ten minutes for order of drinks to be taken and then another five to ten for ordering food. Servers could see we had looked at menu at bar. We were sat right next to the bar under the Pepsi sign so we got all the noise from the blender as well as the staff preparing drinks. Food was ok. But by then our experience had been so lacklustre (our requests in booking were not adhered to) that we just asked for the bill as we wanted to just get out of the restaurant. We then had to wait another fifteen to twenty minutes so gave up and paid at desk. We won't be back which is a shame as we have been going there for over 18 months.

I treated my husband to a meal here for his birthday. The food and drink was amazing. A great variety to choose from and it was absolutely delicious! We were disappointed that we had driven quite a way to eat here and were told that there were no sausages and no cheese sauce for the Mac and cheese so we had to choose something else from the menu. Service on the way in was great. We were seen to straight away and shown to our table, and drinks arrived quickly. However, after asking for the bill, we waited quite a while for someone to come back to us so that we could pay. We would love to visit again in the future though.

Excellent Eatery. Normally I would give service rating of 4 stars although we were a group of 11 with another large group of about 18 on the night and a few others people and they did seem to struggle staff wise, could have done with another waiter/waitress on duty. other than that, was a perfect treat as always.

Had a great meal at Smoke Stack couldn't fault the food and service. Had a table for 13 of us and all the food came out together. Everyone said how great there food was. Will defiantly be going back when we're in the area.

My husband and I a first visited just after this place opened and whilst we both agreed the food was OK we were never in a hurry to come back. Having seen the menu had changed on Facebook we decided to give it another go as we both love America and American food, but sadly I just don't think this place is for us. When walking in the decor is really nice and gives an authentic vibe, and all the staff encountered were friendly and helpful, however the food is just OK. To start I had already decided before we even got there we were having the burnt ends. I had had them at a Smokehouse in Vegas last year and would literally go back to Vegas to have them again, they were that good! When they came out here, for a start they were big, big chunks and for burnt ends they didn't seem very burnt. I was expecting a chargrilled tender taste but in all honesty these were like chewing fat. The waitress actually commented we hadn't eaten much of them - they just weren't that nice. Maybe I had set my experiences too high in comparing them to a different place, but I just felt they were a let down. For the mains, my husband had the Pulled Pork burger and I had the Corney Island burger. My husband ordered his with a texan sausage, this never came, but the waitress did sort it out and take it off the bill. My husband said his burger was good but was let down by the pulled pork being cold - as the waitress asked how our food was he did feed this back and she said she would tell the chef. My chicken burger with the sweetcorn fritter was just OK. There was nothing wrong with it, but nothing memorable about it either. As I've said, we really did want to love this place, but unfortunately walking away the second time and thinking it was OK again means we will probably give it a miss in the future.

Had a lunch time meal for niece's 18th birthday, I hadn't been before but it was a real experience! The food was amazing as were the drinks. I'd happily recommend it for a special occasion.
