Rocking Horse Smokehouse

Rocking Horse Smokehouse is your destination for signature smoked entrees served in an atmosphere of hometown hospitality, innovative culinary, and amazing entertainment.

Our custom smokehouse flavor profile infuses traditional barbeque rubs with Mediterranean herbs and other specialty spices. While we’re preparing your meal, savor a glass of bourbon from our extensive list or try one of our locally brewed ales, lagers, or IPAs.

Gather with friends and family to dine indoors or grab a seat outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Don’t be in a rush because we’ve got plenty to entertain you… from corn hole and horseshoes to dancing and live bands… hang out a while and make yourself at home at Rocking Horse Smokehouse.
