Welcome to Wholly Smokin’ Downtown!

Our mission is to embrace the concept of smoked foods and explore new ways to bring exciting recipes to you!

Our mission has not changed, even though our world has.  We will one day be back to normal.  What that “normal” will be remains to be seen.  Until then, we will press on and adapt as needed.

Due to the COVID-19 virus and our governor’s mandates on the restaurant industry, several changes have occurred.  We are now open for socially distant outdoor dining in our beautiful Renaissance Courtyard, limited indoor dining (at 50% capacity), take-out, delivery, and curb-side pickup.

In addition, we will be temporarily limiting our menu.  Per advice of those a whole lot smarter than me (with over 100 years of restaurant experience between the group), simplification and attention to detail will help us get through this period, as the food supply chain has their own set of unique challenges. 

It has been suggested that menus be pulled up on your personal cell phone to keep minimal contact in place.  You may do that by clicking on the menu tab at the top of the page.  But however you choose to review our offerings, please know that all menus are sanitized after each use. Also, as we enjoy the outdoor seating, we will be using disposable flatware, dishes, and cups.

Lastly, our staff will be wearing PPE (masks and gloves) for the protection of all.  We will be following government guidelines, taking the temp of all staff before clocking into their shift.  We want our customers to always have the peace of mind, knowing that we are doing our part to keep all safe.

And then when we get back to normal hours…

We are known for our traditional smoked BBQ fare, but we are always experimenting in the kitchen  to take smoked foods to a new level!

In addition to our expanding menu and unique dining experience, we are proud to also have a full bar, equipped with 4 flat screen TVs and featuring craft cocktails that include house-made syrups and bitters.  Our beer selection includes local and regional craft beers.  We also have a wonderful wine selection with offerings that pair beautifully with the menu.

For delivery, we are partnered with several companies.  Download any (or all) of the following apps to order:  DoorDash,  Waitr, and ChowNow.  For your convenience, we have included direct links for 3 of the 4 delivery services.

Please keep us in mind for catering!  Events big or small, we will tailor a menu to suit your needs and impress your guests!

We thank you for joining us today, as you are the reason we are here!
