Right on the rim of the New River Gorge—a top-level steak house with a surprisingly casual atmosphere.
Eating at Smokey's is not an everyday dining experience. Our flagship restaurant, Smokey's is a showcase timber-frame pavilion perched right smack dab on the rim of the New River Gorge. The gourmet food combined with friendly service and casual atmosphere has to be experienced to be believed. Optional seating on our outdoor deck offers spectacular views of the New River Gorge and incredible Appalachian sunsets.
Smokey's is open May through October.
Smokey's opened in 1986 with the moniker of Dana "Smokey" Morton, bus driver extraordinaire, who came to Class-VI River Runners in 1979 when the company purchased a 1954 GMC bus from Oak Hill City Lines. Smokey passed away in 1988, but his legend lives on. Some folks still remember Smokey and his long, handlebar mustache, warm smile, mischievous eyes and shaved head.
If the setting is unique, then the cuisine is even more so. Our breakfast buffet is offers a wide variety of get-you-fueled-for-a-day-of-play options, including classics with a Smokey's flair—you'd be hard pressed to find somebody who doesn't think our bacon is the best on Earth. Enjoy a glass of wine from our diverse wine list, your favorite cocktail or a non-alcoholic beverage from our full bar.
