When President Clinton visited Royal Oak in his presidential campaign, he ate at Memphis Smoke. This Arkansas Commander-in-Chief and amateur saxophonist recognized the delightful combination of fine food and fine music that this restaurant offers its customers.
The dimly lit interior of a spacious restaurant offers an upstairs patio and a stage that often features life jazz. Grab the massive menu and a handful of moist towlettes, and prepare for a delicious meal. The seafood is excellent. The jambalaya contains some of the most succulent meat you'll find. Their heaps of pulled pork melt in your mouth. They offer numerous side dishes, including savory buscuits and Southern style greens. The restaurant has a bar and get a little noisy, so it may not be the most ideal environment for a romantic evening for two. For a family, a group, or a casual date, though, this place is perfect. Resort casual or business casual may be the most appropriate attire, but it's a low-key environment for anyone interested. Stop by when you're downtown sometime and enjoy.
