I've been here about 3 times and the food is great. You have to realize this is a "smokehouse" located a few blocks from a University. I put off coming here for a year bcuz I thought the quality wouldn't surpass the price... I was wrong.FOOD/TASTE: I've had the Smokehouse burger, Large onion Ring, Burnt Tips dinner w/Mac & Chz, Brisk ... read more

Wow. Totally didnt expect the food to be THIS good. Smoked gouda mac and cheese is the bomb. If you're feeling fancy, pour some Kansas city barbecue sauce on that beast. The jalapeno hush puppies were INCREDIBLE. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.

Dinner
Great bbq with outstanding sauces. The oyster stew was a great treat and the service was outstanding. Great place to eat in Norfolk.

It's a win! When we walked in I was already pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a cheap student cafeteria or basic frat house style cafe but instead found a warmly designed restaurant that you may find anywhere but just happens to be next to ODU. The staff was friendly and took the time to chat about the history of the owners an ... read more

The fries were good albeit a little too salted and the caesar salad was good but ask for the dressing on the side if they'll do it that way..... Pulled pork BBQ was super good as was the She Crab Soup.... Good service...... our drinks never got to empty before they were filled, and our server was very cheery!

Small restaurant that specializes in barbeque and oysters. Had the oyster poorboy and really enjoyed it. My friend had the french dip and was pleased as well.

I was doing deliveries Smalls was my last stop for the night. I went back and picked up my order for myself in my roommate and it was the best meal that I've had from Smalls in a very long time they have a new menu and great spirits and great crew. Go get you some good food!

We finally decided to check this place out after almost 2 years of living here and I wish we had found it sooner. The environment is chill and I loved the hot sauce wall they recently put up. They told us they were out of certain things because they are changing the menu up and adding new things. We'll be back on Thursdays for karaok ... read more

Every time I go to this place I am always impressed. I have never been there while they have really busy nights, so I can't comment on how well they perform then. But, every time I have visited during the day, they have always been professional and their food is always excellent and full of good flavoring. I love their little coconut ... read more

Relaxing place, nice bar. Good BBQ, really good smoked wings. Good meat platters. Usually quiet and chill, it might be more lively during happy hour.

Great BBQ & Oysters!

My Dad was in town visiting and wanted some BBQ so we came here. I’ve lived in Norfolk for about 3 years and have driven by this place a hundred times but never stopped in. Long story short, my Dad is a food connoisseur. He couldn’t even count how many BBQ places he’s been in his life. And tonight, as we left, he said it was one of t ... read more
