    Dry ribs were DRY! Tasted like they had been sitting around for a long time. The texture was more like cardboard than juicy meat. The wet brisket ends were smothered in sauce that covered the taste of the meat. The sliced brisket had some smoke flavor but no red ring that should have been present if the meat had been smoked for the length of time as described on the menu.Sides were pedestrian at best. Pleasant setting for dinner in a nice rural town but if you want bbq, look look elsewhere.

    Honestly loved our first trip just two months ago, and brought friends this time. Massively disappointing evening. Server was pleasant, and 5 of 6 of us paid $30 each for the buffet. Expensive, but we were excited to try a variety. Even though we arrived for an early dinner, most of the buffet's meats were cold, a sure sign they was NOT freshly cooked, and tasting it was further confirmation. The meats had the tasteless bitterness of reheated fare. While most of the food lends itself to sandwiches, the breads put out for buffet were not only rubbery and clearly not fresh, but not even sliced. We had to ask for a knife and were given a small steak knife. The breads were dry and cold, especially the cornbread, which was tasty, moist and warm last time. Even the mashed potatoes were sour and tasteless. We suspected the buffet was created to camouflage and repurpose unsold food. I ate virtually nothing of my $30 meal, and I tried many options. Corn cobs were overcooked and soggy and mushy, also signaling reheating. The place is lovely and very large, yet on a June Saturday night (and we stayed over 3 hours!) it was nearly empty. Clearly understood why. WIth so many Rhinebeck choices, this one sadly is not worth another trip. We wanted to love it, but just couldn't. If ever a place was crying out for a Gordon Ramsey fix, this is it!

    Excellent find! We went skiing at hunter mountain and our hotel was near this restaurant. They were smoking their meats outside and the smell was great. We got the triple barbeque- half rack wet ribs, dry rub ribs and pulled pork. Loved the dry rub, my kids loved the pulled pork and the wet ribs. the mashed potato side with gravy was great with the meats. great value for $33!

    Incredible BBQ experience. Texas has finally arrived in the Hudson Valley. Authentic wood smoked succulent meats are served in this fine restaurant. Simple good home cooking with BBQ mastery was presented to me and my dining companion. We tried the sampler platter and it was one of my best Hudson valley dining experiences to date. The brisket, sausage, turkey, and pulled pork were fork tender and very flavorful. The ribs were a masterpiece. Chef Dimitri really cares about his product and its shows in his works of BBQ art. The sides also play a big role in the BBQ experience. The baked beans had burnt ends from the brisket and the mac and cheese was baked in a creamy cheese sauce that complemented our meal. Our dessert, a slice of red velvet cake, was so big that we shared it between the two of us. Smoky Rock BBQ has a nice warm pleasant environment and the front of the house is run by Chef Dimitri's wife Nike. We will be back soon and enjoy this true gem. The Hudson Valley Restaurant scene has a new shining star.

    SmokyRock is a fun and young establishment set in a wonderful old building in central Rhinebeck New York. The venue is quiet, the staff are novices, but very friendly and eager to help. Although I arrived close to closing time, they closed the restaurant and allowed me and my wife to finish our meal in peace. And as we walked out the back towards the car park, the large roaster was busy smoking the next slow batch of bbq for the next day...made my mother water again even though my belly was full. Try the dry rub ribs!
