About Smoke Stack
Excellent Smoke Stack
The 5pm offer of 3 course lunch with coffee was excellent value - the quality of the food was good and the service was excellent.
Lovely meal - good range of food with plenty choice at each course.
Tasty food and near playhouse
Didn’t look much from the outside but food was fab and service very good! We booked the 5pm.com deal 3 courses for £15 which included a glass of wine. Each course was delicious! If you are going to see a show at the playhouse then this is a short walk away and ideally located.
Steakhouse and bar in Edinburgh city centre
A popular fixture on Edinburgh’s Broughton Street since the 1990s, Smoke Stack is a laidback steak house and bar. Stone walls, tiles, chunky wooden furniture and bare light bulbs give it a stripped back feel but the atmosphere is as warm and welcoming as you could wish for. On sunny days, the outside tables are popular for watching Broughton Street’s quirky street life.
Steaks, burgers and more
Smoke Stack likes to take top quality locally sourced produce and cook it simply. Steaks from John Gilmour Butchers take pride of place. They are dry-aged for at least 21 days and served with chips, green salad, mash or new potatoes. Burgers, hearty salads, fish & chips, fajitas and meaty sandwiches also demand attention. Moving away from the a la carte menu, Smoke Stack offers set daily menus, a breakfast selection and, at the weekends, a brunch/lunch menu. For dessert, brownies, banoffee pie and cheesecakes compete with a selection of splits and sundaes. Alongside a surprisingly extensive wine list, there are inventive cocktails and lots of beers, many of which are Scottish. Smoothies, shakes and floats offer non-alcoholic alternatives.
