As an out of state guest the auto added 20% gratuity is odd. It lead to lackluster service. Ordered a cider beverage and never received it. Ordered coffee and you get a 3/4 full cup. Food was decent, yet nothing spectacular to return to.
Our experience was great visiting HalfSmoke. From the games to the food, I highly recommend visiting.
Food was great however rap music videos blasting from TVs in the restaurant ruined the whole experience. The place was pretty empty for A Friday night. It’s a shame they’re not really doing much to bring people in or promote themselves in the neighborhood.
We went in for brunch and ordered almost as soon as our waiter arrived. It took over an hour for French Toast. I ordered Shrimp and grits and the 1st batch came out cold and the second batch was lukewarm. The burgers were the best thing. Our waiter tried but the kitchen didn’t help at all.
The service was amazing. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious!
Server was great but food and atmosphere was SUBPAR at best. Went for brunch--my food was straight-up cold and the coffee was AWFULLL. They were not busy at all and my partners food was very hot so it was definitely a poorly timed kitchen issue. Food tasted fine but will not be returning.
That 20% gratuity for a SAUSAGE w/ hot
Cheetos took me out. I won’t be back … EVER!!!!
Everyone there was very nice. Great experience 👍 will have to come back for brunch!
Nice outdoor brunch.
Hostess was great!
The first problem arose when we tried to enter to inform the hostess of our family reservations. We needed face masks and our temperatures taken. Neither of which were a problem with us, but it would have been appreciated to post those requirements on the HalfSmoke website - which we visited several times to review the menu choices. The second problem came in when one of our orders was incorrect. It had an ingredient to which a family member was allergic to and we asked the waitress to have it removed when being prepared in the kitchen. The third problem came in when the incorrect order took another 20 minutes to be made... yet it was only a scrambled egg. All in all, it was an average to below average experience for nearly $200 dollars.
We are very sorry to hear your experience was just average. For 5 guest to dine having 4 alcoholic beverages, a couple of appetizers and each a meal @ $180 (with Gratuity) seems to be inline with most full service restaurants. We attempt to go above and beyond with any food allergies that we are alerted of. We will be sure to use your review to be able to coach and educate our staff. Mask and temperature check that is a Balt City Mandate that we must follow and is listed on our OpenTable.
My girlfriend and I noticed HalfSmoke recently opened so we decided to book a reservation and we were debating between outside and inside and the manager Roger promptly greeted us and helped us decide.
We ended up inside at a gorgeous large table against a window that gave us the best of both worlds. And centered across the room was “Don’t grow up it’s a trap” written with neon lights. The environment was so classy but relaxed at the same time it’s hard to describe.
The food and drinks are well priced very affordable but was of the utmost quality and the presentation was on point. My meal came in a lunch box and our check in a old Aladdin VHS box. Our waiter Donte was so nice and helped me decide what to order and what drinks to get. The bartender made a killer Jenga ( which came in a smoke filled bird cage.
I absolutely loved this place and plan to make this one of my go to spots for dinner and hopefully lunch as well.
We are so glad you guys came in and we were able to wow you with our service, food and drinks!!! See you soon!!!
Great service, amazing food and awesome cocktails!!!
The service was very good. However the food was NOT seasoned and was cold. The limited menu was disappointing considering we looked at everything online before arriving. The bottomless mimosas were really bottomless juice. Our server was very nice and the floor manager was hilarious which saves the meal. We left hungry and ended up going across the street right after to eat.
Love it!! Everything was amazing!!!! Love the little touches like the glasses resembling old cans
Wonderful place! Will definitely be back.
Not worth money but a cute little spot.
The food was terrible. It was bland and the options where limited. The server while very pleasant was not helpful in finding dish alternatives. If I ever came back it would be for drinks only.
I went for my first time on Mother’s Day with both of my young daughters and husband. The food was great the drinks our waitress suggested it tasted just like peach rings and it was delicious. The owner and manager both came to check on us and to make sure we didn’t need anything. I believe it was a manager that helped me with my 7 month olds car seat and changed the chair for us so that she would be a little more secure. 10/10 would recommend and I will definitely be back
Thank you very much for selecting us for your Mothers Day Celebration and the amazing review!! We look forward to you visiting us again!!
For Mother’s Day, my children and I had a great time dining. The music selection, our waitress, and the food were all perfect! We will be back soon!
Thank you for visiting us on your special day with your delightful children. We love seeing our guest create memories with their family... Cheers!!
Our waiter Dominick was exceptional. We will be back!
Fun night out! Excellent service
Thank you for selecting us for your night out!!!
We were a party of 6, our cocktails took about 30mins to come out even though the restaurant wasn't full. Our appetizers & entrees took almost an hour! Half of my party liked their food and the other half didn't. The server was slow & not attentive...which ruined our experience. None of us would return.
Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry that your felt the server was not attentive but as you stated half of your party didn't seem to enjoy anything they ordered so she did have to spend extra time trying to appease your modifications to no avail.
Great experience, will definitely return.
Thank you very much for the great review! We look forward to exceeding our guest expectations!
Food was nothing to write home about, the menu was a bunch of sausages and sandwiches. the spirit selection was not great. They didnt have a lot of popular spirits.
Manager Roger was outstanding. Spot on with all his recommendations. Entire staff was friendly, professional and helpful. Great experience.
Thank you very much for you glowing review!! Please come back soon and see what else we've added to the menu!!
