Restaurant description

A proper haven for BBQ lovers, Manchester Smokehouse is a bustling wood-filled venue that serves up traditional home-style dishes from the States along with a tremendous selection of craft beers, all with a packed line-up of live music events.

Rubbed with secret recipe herbs and spices, the meats on the Manchester Smokehouse menu are cooked to perfection over hickory, oak and fruit woods. Tuck into Texas hand-sliced brisket, pulled pork, and juicy baby back ribs, adding in smoked garlic fries, wood-fired nachos, or the onion bomb with Alabama white BBQ sauce. For brave diners, there are chicken wings marinated in signature hot sauce that is so spicy that it comes with its own disclaimer.

Hand-stretched pizzas are a popular choice at Manchester Smokehouse, along with a choice of well-stacked burgers. For pudding, indulge in sweet waffles with ice cream, chocolate sauce and toffee popcorn, while from the bar there are all kinds of ales and craft beers on top, along with a great selection of artisan spirits.

A meat-lover's dream, Manchester Smokehouse packs in an eclectic live music schedule, and sits 12 minutes' walk from Deansgate Rail Station.

    We had a wonderful experience. The staff provided a great service that was friendly and clearly a well-oiled process, they all worked together collaboratively. They were really helpful with menu questions, and even predicted questions before we asked them based on conversations we were having. We ordered the £39.50 share platter and the food was amazing. It was my boyfriend's birthday so I requested a piece of cheesecake with a candle quietly - they swiftly brought it out, but gave us two pieces so that we could have one each, which I thought was a lovely touch. Great value, great quality, great afternoon :)

    Great food and service. Half chicken and brisket were both packed full of flavour and the meat fell off the bone!

    We arrived at 10 to 8 and was told there would be a little wait and to wait in the bar.. I have been smokehouse a few times now and it doesn't disappoint. 10 past 8 comes and still no table, we was sat down at half 8. I understand it was busy but we pre booked.. the service from the staff that served us was good kept asking if we needed drinks and more time to decide. We decided on our food there was 6 of us.. everyone's food came apart from my burger which was a wrong order so had to be sent back. A further half an hour later everyone had finished pretty much still no burger. I asked a member of staff who went and checked and came back with my burger but no halloumi fried which I ordered I shrugged it off as I was beyond hungry at this point. The food as always is spot on very tasty indeed. We asked for the bill and they charged me my burger and halloumi fries Usually I wouldn't mind but half an hour wait to be sat down pre booked and then half an hour to wait for my burger . They very kindly knocked my burger off but left the fries on which I didn't even get. I had to ask again for the fries to be knocked off. We always go with work but I might find somewhere else in future. I understand it was busy but again we did pre book so they was expecting us.

    Great service from the staff. Drinks and food came out in a timely manner. Most ordered off the lunch menu and their burgers were nice. I ordered the Ribs and they were quite tough. Usually ribs fall off the bone, these had to be pulled off. And I ordered the full rack, but I was given two small "half racks", with only 5 ribs each, 2 short in total. I would much rather go to Red True BBQ 25 yards up the road.
