Used to love coming here a lot. Steaks were very decent, pulled pork, ribs, .... and always looked forward to the Wednesday $1 wings with bleu cheese dip. We visited again yesterday and were shocked to see such a drastic price hike to the menu! Yes the steak offering now is much bigger a chunky 300g slab, but I'm not about to spend $40 on a weekday meal outing.
Also, they added some high tables and stools in the middle. Of course everyone will choose to seat at the lower (normal) tables first and not the high tables. We were left with no choice to sit awkwardly and uncomfortably at the high tables.
Perhaps the largely expat crowd can still afford the new prices, and perhaps the owner is only interested in serving them as he is expat himself. But I don't think my family and I are going to be going back again. I'm sad to say this as I really loved visiting Smokey's. Thanks for the good memories.
