Barbecue

  • 81
Overview

The Smoke Ring pays tribute to Southern cuisine offering guests Georgia-style BBQ alongside classic comfort fare at this lively restaurant and bar. BBQ plates include pulled pork, spare ribs or sausage alongside mac n’ cheese and molasses baked beans, as well as smoked chicken sliders, BBQ deviled eggs, or brisket burrito. The long bar showcases a list of New World wines, craft beers (many hailing from the state), a strong whiskey selection, and a Southern-inspired cocktail menu like a seasonal vodka punch served in a mason jar.
