    The rest of Melbourne is finally catching on to a little secret in Moonee Ponds and Ringwood. Smoken Joe's is the best place to find a contemporary cafe menu, fused with Joe's Mediterranean influence (Thanks Joe!). Our food is served by Melbourne's friendliest wait staff (and strongest - they have to be; the meals are so big!), from a menu that is large enough to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters. And yes, we have a vegetarian selection and can cater for most diners who require gluten free meals. Seasoned steak eaters will not regret a visit and we're confident that Smoken Joe's will become a regular destination.

    At Ringwood we've introduced a small pizza menu - not just your normal run of the mill pizzas, but truly gourmet dishes that the fussiest critic will appreciate. Could be coming soon to Moonee Ponds as well.

    Smoken Joe's prides itself in providing you with the best ingredients so that your meal is not only of high quality, but exceptional value. Our chefs are constantly working on new and exciting dishes to make your visit truly memorable.

    Smoken Joe's can also cater for your celebration, so let us help make your day a truly fabulous one. Moonee Ponds can seat 120 guests and Ringwood seats a whopping 300. We have a number of set menus ranging from budget to fine dining for your selection so why not call our manager (Carole at Ringwood, Boris at Moonee Ponds) and have a chat about your needs. Of course, bookings are essential.

    Catering at your venue is also a feature at Smoken Joe's. Our chefs have vast experience and can provide a service and quality that will certainly impress you and your guests whether it be a budget finger food occasion or a full blown sit down dinner. Please contact our manager for further information.

      The place has freshened up from my last visit couple of years ago. Menu has changed but still has a huge variety of meals that taste delicious. Try Rib Eye steak - one of the best I have eaten in ages. Bruchetta was different from traditional with crumbed fetta and pesto but the taste was superb. Service is efficient and friendly. High marks all around.

      Fantastic experience. Organised a function for my birthday for 40 people and everyone had a blast! Staff were friendly and helpful and the meals were delicious. Don't expect "fine dining" but massive and extremely, extremely tasty meals. The beef Burger , Parmagiana and Ribs were great ( our family likes to swap in order to get a good selection and taste as much as possible!). We'll definitely be going back- have actually made a booking for this Saturday night already with some friends.

      The service was a little slow . We were left for quite some time after our mains and when we eventually asked about dessert, were told that the kitchen was closed - it was 10.00 pm. The size of the dishes was huge - great for males with a hearty appetite but far too big for most females.

      Can't fault anything to do with our experience at Smoken Joe's! Haven't been there in a few years and have tonight was our second visit in just one week. Terrific service, fantastic meals and just plain fun.

      Fantastic restaurant. Portions are very big and food is delicious. We all enjoyed. Great night out.

      Six of us went there on Sat night. The place was packed but the manager sorted out the table for us in two minutes. Recomended to make a booking on a weekend. Food was good and service very helpfull. One of my favorite casual restaurants. Thanks

    • Overall 2.5 |  Food 2  |  Ambience 4  |  Value 3  |  Service 1

      this place could do with NEW STAFF! its very clear that they all do not care about what they dish up! very disapointed! as you would be with cold food for a table of 3, and only 4 tables were in use? i will never return

    • Overall 7 |  Food 7  |  Ambience 8  |  Value 5  |  Service 8

      There were 9 of us in the group. We preordered our meals so I dont know how quick Smoken's service would normally be for such a large group. The service was great however we didnt believe we got value for money with the quality of the food, which was compensated for with quantity.

    • Overall 2.5 |  Food 1  |  Ambience 4  |  Value 4  |  Service 1

      I found the food here to be very very poor. The price reasonable however this was reflected in the quality of the food. My meal tasted like it had been heated up in the microwave. The service staff were very poor and seemed very uninterested in actually serving you. I wont be going back.

      Fantastic food and great atmosphere. Will definitely be back for more.

    • Overall 2.8 |  Food 1  |  Ambience 2  |  Value 5  |  Service 3

      The food was terrible! Very tacky restaurant. It felt like a fast food restaurant except your food was brought to your table. Wait staff didn't seem to care too much.

      I loved the sticky date pudding but the pumpkin soup was quite average. Thanks.

      We have been going to Smoken Joe's for a few years now. The staff and the food is always fantastic. Whenever friends come over we take them to our favourite spot and they are always surprised by the size of the delicious meals! Great value for money and a terrific atmosphere... just make sure to call ahead on weekends as it gets quite busy. Top marks for a top restaurant!

    • Overall 3.5 |  Food 2  |  Ambience 5  |  Value 5  |  Service 2

      Service terrible. Ordered breakfast for five. Took forever to come out and when it did was cold. How a restaurant has the nerve to serve food cold when they surely would've known I don't understand. Cold eggs on cold toast. No Thanks!! Will not be going back.

    • Overall 10 |  Food 10  |  Ambience 10  |  Value 10  |  Service 10

      Our dining experience was very enjoyable. The wait staff were very good with the kids, even providing them with colouring books and pencils to keep them entertained. The food is great value for money and best of all, absolutely delicious!!!

    • Overall 9 |  Food 9  |  Ambience 9  |  Value 9  |  Service 9

      We all had a great time. Will be back.

    • Overall 5.3 |  Food 6  |  Ambience 4  |  Value 8  |  Service 3

      Have been there several times, each time the service has been very bad. Once our group was overcharged by $100, wouldn't hurt if the staff were a little more friendly as well. There are far better places to eat on the strip, I won't be going back until the customer service improves. A. Moonee Ponds
