Just finished an evening at the Smokehouse Restaurant. The food was delicious and served with a smile from Sarah. We loved the piano playing, which adds to the atmosphere. ---I judge the cleanliness of the kitchen by the way a bathroom is kept, and it is excellent!

I enjoy the piano player and singer on Saturday nights. The brisket salad is the best ever, it was so large my mother and I both enjoyed a serving of one. The service is very personal and great... sometimes when they are super busy you just have wait your turn....Typical for a popular restaurant.

I have been going to Tenkiller lake and the cookson smokehouse ever since I can remember and the previous owners forgot to care. Bob and Twig Pierce are nice people, but stopped caring about what was happening in their own restaurant. I went to the cookson smokehouse shortly after the new owners took it over and it was the cleanest it had ever been. They changed their sauce which was the best bbq sauce I have ever had. The food was great and the service was very friendly. The owners even came around and actually showed that they cared. I enjoyed my experience very much and I am sorry, but the review before me just seemed fake and unrealistic.

Pros: FOOD, Service

Cons: none that I can think of

The Cookson Smoke House was a great place to eat - - - - UNTIL it changed hands. The service is TERRIBLE ? I don?t know about the food since after a 1.5 hour wait we left without getting anything to eat. We even made reservations. After waiting for 1 hour without getting even the dinner salads and no refills on the drinks, I went to ask what the hold up was. I was told that they had to wait on all of the small groups (who came in after us) before they could get to us. Go figure. We left. Later in the evening, I called the manager (who is the owner?s mother), to voice our complaint that we were there for 1.5 hours, had not been served the dinner salad?s that came with our meal, and not been served any drink refills and was told that we had been given refills 3 times and our food was being brought out to us when we left; the manager then stated that she knew this because there were drinks on the table and she was coming in while we were leaving, then immediately stated, ?I?m not lying.? Since I was getting no where with her I asked to speak to the owner and was told that she was not there. I called the next morning to speak with Janet Richardson, the owner, and was told that she was unable to come to the phone so I left my number to have her return my call. I called today (8/21/07) because Ms. Richardson did not return my call yesterday. She stated that she had heard my complaint 4 times, (where and from whom she heard my complaint from is beyond me, since she had not ever talked to me), and didn?t need nor want to hear it again and was told not to harass her again. We were never offered an explanation, apology, or anything.

Pros: I don't know any pros - large group - made reservations - never got the food

Cons: TERRIBLE SERVICE - never got refills - dinner salads - or any food - left after 1.5 hrs of waiting.

The food is good, but the prices are high. It is one of the only places for serious food close to the lake, so it is very popular. If you are looking for a nice meal and evening out this is it.
