Smoke on the Water

103 Park Ave,
Charlevoix, MI 49720

Smoke on the Water is first and foremost a BBQ joint. They slow-smoke their meats with various fruit woods and maple wood in their smoker that sits right outside the restaurant. SOW prides itself on serving made-from-scratch food, including their own Challah bread used in their Drunken French Toast. They deliver to all downtown businesses and the marina. They are located next to Hoffman Park which overlooks the channel. Come in and borrow a blanket for a picnic.

The food was delicious! My husband really loved the drunken French toast, and I loved my regular challah toast! The servers were friendly and helpful! There was a wait to dine (good things come to those that wait) as the dining room and outdoor seating are limited. This should be a must stop on your visit to Charlevoix!

Great spot for breakfast in downtown Charlevoix. It’s a small restaurant with limited seating, but the food is well worth the wait. Have had most items on their breakfast menu, and there hasn’t been one that I would not get again. Everything is fresh, delicious, and large portions. Have also gotten trays of food to go, the meatloaf and mashed potatoes are a family favorite!

If you are on a schedule, come back in November when they aren’t busy. 20 min wait for table, 30 min wait for food & 10 min walk down Park back to the only parking spot could find. Brisket Dip Sandwich with apple laced coleslaw and fresh made kettle chips. Thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

I don’t like to complain, but this was absolutely unacceptable. We arrived for lunch at 11:25, waiting 20 mins to be seated. That was understandable for a Saturday. But after being seated , we waited until 12:50 for our lunch. With ordering 2 omelettes, and a side of bacon and side of links for the kids, why in the world would it take over an hour for that food. Once the food came it was not even cooked completely. My daughters links were pink and not cooked as well. The Waiter apologized and removed the omelette of the bill. But it was not worth the wait. Very disappointed.

You have to try this place ! For breakfast they have a gigantic piece of French toast made from homemade bread soaked overnight in champagne 🥂 and Lemon curd pancakes. I can't even tell you how amazing both these things are.......the only thing better was the service. 5 stars all the way
