    Valet system is very unorganized entering. After being seated and waiting 10 mins. for a server, asked the hostess to please send someone to bring us water and take our drink order. Waited another 5 - 10 mins. for a server. NOT a good customer service first impression. Food was very good.

    We always enjoy Smoky Rose. Love the patio and the yard. However service was poorly executed. It took over 25 minutes to receive water and drinks after we were seated. I went to the bar to get us water myself. We received the appetizer quickly. I had eaten a little later in the day and ordered dessert for dinner while my companion ordered an entree. I requested that the dessert be brought out with his dinner. It was not and we had to ask twice for it to be brought out. The food never disappoints here and was great.

    I like music but it’s turned up way to loud inside. The music should be background music so we don’t have to screen to talk to our friends at the table and also can hear the waitress

    Very crowded on a Friday night - make reservations and plan to valet park (trust me on this). Friendly, happy place, good for families or singles. Huge patio, music, fun vibe. One disappointment - I had indicated a birthday in our group and no mention was made of it. Most restaurants do a complimentary dessert, but that didn't happen here.

    Dakota was our waiter and he was very attentive and knowledgeable without hovering too much. We got to see the patio roof and sides open up which was nice and helped get a better breeze on the patio. We couldn’t hear the live music too well but what we could he was good. It’s family friendly and even dog friendly in the yard seating area. We enjoyed very much and will be back. The food was so good and good portions for cost which wasn’t bad either. We had the pork burnt ends (OMG SO GOOD), the Philly, & brisket tacos. They cook in canola oil also which is great cause we have soy protein allergy. Definitely will be back!

    Our table was located near a back exit and there were issues with flies. The server was relatively new and tried to help be putting a fan on the table. It didn’t. Also, the jalapeño hush puppies were too hard to eat. Drinks were good.

    I've been here a few times and each time the food, drinks, and service have been outstanding. We have tried the Reuben, pulled pork quesadilla, and brisket enchiladas and all were delicious. The jalapeño poppers stuffed with cheese and brisket are the best I've ever had. The craft cocktails are extremely well done including the Lalo tequila ranch water and rosemary old fashioned. Definitely worth the trip to White Rock for this fare.

    The backyard chicken with smoked bbq chicken (great size), potato salad, and bbq beans was excellent. The banana pudding was excellent. However, my only complaint was that my food was surrounded by flies. It was very distracting having to swat away flies while I was eating. Even though I was given a device to control the flies, it did not eliminate the problem. Despite the fly problem, overall I was very happy and will return to the restaurant.
