    Great BBQ place to eat for GF people! My wife had many food allergies, gluten being the worst, and the Smokehouse did is good!! Our server was very knowledgeable of the foods and sauces she couldn't eat.

    The baby back ribs were fall off the bone excellent! The mild and hot BBQ sauce are GF. I also had the loaded baked potato and coleslaw. They have GF hard cider and full bar. We sat out in the patio with a nice breeze blowing and shade from the trees. Nice atmosphere and the local entertainment was good too. Will be back to this place next year!

    They were very accommodating when I said I had many food allergies, gluten being the most serious. I had grilled shrimp, without any grill prep, the baked potato and steamed green beans. Everything was delicious, and I had no problems after eating. We will be back when we are back on HHI! ❤️

    Separate GF menu with lots of options. I ordered the half chicken with mashed potatoes. Beware of the BBQ sauce on the table. The mustard sauce is not GF.

    Food was delicious. A place to go when it's not busy. Brought out chicken on a bun. Luckily I had read that GF came without a bun. I questioned the order & kitchen remade the order without issue. Restaurant was very busy at the time of our visit

    My GF children loved that they could order the ribs. They have never been able to order ribs out before. They loved them. They were not fall off the bone however. Only thing that made my child sad was that she could not have the French fries because they do not have a dedicated fryer. There were plenty of other gf side options however. They had a separate GF menu so you knew exactly what your options are and the selection was large.

    Great food, excellent service, knowledgeable staff. I had the ribeye steak and my daughter had the brisket. We both have celiac and experienced no problems after the meal. Will definitely go here again!

    Usually if I leave a review it's regarding the safety of the foods/restaurant/staff as that is a celiac's main concern or 'fear' when eating out. I absolutely felt safe eating here! Without question! The gluten free menu is extensive and there are disclaimers regarding contamination issues in fryers. Never seen this before. Now, onto the food. HOLY COW! Soooooooooo good! I didn't feel like I was eating a gluten-free meal, I felt like I was eating a meal...a real BBQ dinner... and I was in heaven! I just finished my left overs and thinking about going back before we return to Cincinnati. BTW, anyone from Cincinnati or familiar with Montgomery Inn, The Smokehouse blows them out of the water, so to speak. ;-)

    Good gluten free menu, plus many of their barbecue sauces were gf which was a rare treat! I ordered brisket-stuffed potato skins for an app (ah-mazing), then ribs with baked beans and slaw. My plate came with corn bread on it even though I told the server I was GF, but they remade the plate without question.

    We ordered take out and it only took 30 min for 5 of us. Excellent! Staff was very friendly and helpful. I had the smokehouse ribs with baked potato and vegetables. Also had a salad. All of the food was warm. Gluten free menu not online but they have one at the restaurant and most if their menu is gluten free.
