Delicious food, let down by the lack of Cajun selections on the menu The meals we had were lovely, but I didn’t feel there was enough Cajun/NOLA style food on the menu. The brisket and pulled pork were very good, but I don’t need to leave my neighbourhood to get that. The jambalaya and fried okra that we shared as entrees were very good as well, but why no ettoufee on the menu? How bout a shrimp (prawn) po’ boy?
Hi Brent, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your recent dining experience! The team and I were thrilled to see the great scores you have awarded. All our dishes are inspired by the New Orleans, Louisiana region as well as other Southern states in the US - with our very own, contemporary and Australian twist. Our menus in the venue change regularly and up until the last menu we did also have an Oyster Po'boy on our Bar Menu. Besides the Jambalaya, we also have contemporary versions of a gumbo, a fried grit cake, fried shrimp, and many more New Orleans dishes that are constantly rotating. We hope to be able to welcome you back soon! Kind regards,

Everything from the snapper ceviche to the simple chili salt on the chips was absolutely incred (Mac and cheese side is a must). The service was warm, knowledgeable and attentive. Let them recommend a cocktail - you won’t regret it!

We had a great night, lots of delicious meat to choose from. Everything we had was lovely. The restaurant was busy so the service was a little slow.
Hi Sam, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent dining experience at NOLA Smokehouse and Bar. The team and I were very disappointed to read that the level of service you experienced did not live up to our usual high standards. While we are not complacent to your feedback this is definitely an isolated incident which all of the great reviews we have received confirm. The fact that the Smokehouse was very busy should not have impacted your experience and we're sorry it has. On a lighter note we were delighted to read how much you enjoyed the night overall and especially our food. We all hope that this has not dampened your decision to visit us again in the future as we'd love to showcase what the team are really capable of. Kind regards,

Good food. But we all really expected more. The serving size was particularly underwhelming. Cool atmosphere, but won't go back.

If you love your smoked meats, you definitely need to come here. The share platters are extremely good value, and gives you the chance to try a bit of everything.

Food and service was excellent. Restaurant was not that easy to find but once instructions were given it was easy. Restaurant was facing the harbour from 1st level which was great. Kids absolutely loved it
