At Southside Smokehouse, we specialize in traditional American comfort food with a twist. From NC style Barbecue to Louisiana Cajun and Creole dishes to other Southern Classics, like Fried Chicken or Shrimp n Grits, you are sure to find something that will please the palates of all your dining companions. Chef Sarah McClure showcases weekly specials that are creative and eclectic. Specially prepared steaks, seafood, pasta, pizzas, sandwiches, tacos and more all make appearances on this frequently rotating menu. Please call or check our Facebook page for today's offerings or look through our photos for some examples of past creations.
We have a full bar that features all the classics as well as unique cocktails, beers and old-fashioned libations. Seasonal creations like our Watermelon Cilantro Margarita or Blueberry Mint Mojito are popular choices, as are our Abita Beer (Abita Springs, LA) offerings like Purple Haze and Abita Amber. We have a fantastic draft selection, featuring a total of 12 taps with some favorites always available, along with rotating crafts from around the country. Try one of our Copper Mug Cocktails, like the Dark and Stormy or the Moscow Mule for an extra cold beverage with a kick. We have over 120 Bourbon and 40 Tequila options to choose from and flights are available.
Whenever possible our vegetables are seasonal and locally sourced from farmers in the Landrum, Tryon and Columbus area. We are always happy to accommodate dietary restrictions and create vegetarian, vegan and gluten free items for our guests whenever possible.
We are able to accommodate large parties with advanced notice and we offer an outdoor patio area (dog friendly!) with cornhole and a fire pit on chilly nights.
We do full scale catering and concessions of both our daily menu items and personalized custom menus for your event. Please call or email and ask for Sarah for further catering inquiries.
One of the few places I will even order a steak- perfectly cooked every time. Sides to die for, amazing specials daily, and homemade lemonade. Don't miss this great local spot with the friendliest staff around.
Any time I go to the Southside Smokehouse there is always something new and exciting on the menu that satisfies my taste buds as well as fits my budget. The old standbys like pulled pork or ribs are just as good.
Great Food but above all they have PAPPY!!!!! all 4 shots of 20yo at $100 (currently) filed a part of my bucket list!! Will be back soon.
Southside Smokehouse is the restaurant we visit most often. They have a varied menu -- meat, seafood, pasta and vegetarian. I particularly like their vegetable selection. The chef does marvelous things with beets, kale, sweet potatoes or whatever is in season. My husband likes their Cajun selections.
The atmosphere is casual. Shorts or jeans are fine. They have some good craft beers on tap and a selection of scotches. Something for everyone.
I wanna give a huge shout out to the wonderful fine folks at Southside smoke house and grille in landrum sc. I had the best plate of Cajun shrimp and grits with andoulle sausage I have ever had. Amazing. And they even comped my plate for being a veteran. Thank you. happy full customer

Love this place. Lots of amazing daily specials. Fresh cut fries are the best, and local fresh vegetable. We eat there once a week.
This was my first trip to North Carolina and this restaurant was recommended to us. It was fabulous the food was terrific even though I could not eat all of it. The staff were so helpful and guided us through the menu. Definitely would come again
I had the shrimp and grits and it was fantastic! tender shrimp, creamy grits and a hint of spice from the sausage and tomatoes. Really delish! My husband said the fish tacos were the best he has ever had and he is a fish taco expert! highly recommend!
