Smokin' Joes is incredible !!! A massive selection of great on-tap beers (65?) and also cool tshirts ha ha.

It's not as large or as deco-impressive as a place like FatHeads but on the other hand it's a bit more down to earth and it's less of a restaurant and more of a bar with some decent food.

There's a great digital jukebox that always seems to have something playing, or you can pay and select your own music which will eventually play. That's a plus over most of the other local venues which have pre-canned music playing or sports tv games running.

A definite place to visit, more than once.

Stopped in hear after hitting the tiki lounge and was very impressed.
we walked in and it was tight in front of the door but opened up in the back so we found seats at the bar.

the selection was awesome great bottle list great taps to many to list.
the service was good they handed me a book with the beer list and knew everything on it and were able to steer me away from some of the crap.

the food was good all we got was wings the burger and fries but was good bar food.
good beer good food good service would go back anytime
