I went with an American friend and she was very excited about the menu. We ordered for entries the cornbread and fried chicken (yummy!!!) and for mains Gumbo and Chili Shrimp etouffee, and they were delicious! For dessert we got the pecan & maple bacon crème brulee....OMG....totally recommend it! This dinner was way beyond my expectations.

For the all you can eat lunch , beef brisket & chicken were excellent but not the pork & chorizo are average. Good value .

The food was excellent and cocktails were quite tasty and creative. However, there wasn’t much atmosphere (very bright lighting) and the service was slow and inattentive even though it wasn’t that busy.
Hi Nicole, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent dining experience at NOLA Smokehouse and Bar. The team and I were very disappointed to read that the level of service you experienced did not live up to our usual high standards. While we are not complacent to your feedback this is definitely an isolated incident which all of the great reviews we have received confirm. On a lighter note we were delighted to read that you thoroughly enjoyed the food and cocktails! Please e-mail me directly on info@nolasydney.com in case you would like to discuss this experience in more detail. We all hope that this has not dampened your decision to visit us again in the future as we'd love to showcase what the team are really capable of. Kind regards, Hayley

The meats at Nola were absolutely amazing. Cannot rave enough about the chicken. We had the $49 meat platter and it was more than enough for 4 people. Mac and Cheese is a must as well.
