2% Kitchen Appreciation Fee

This 2% fee, applied to each bill, allows our kitchen staff to share in the success of the restaurant and be compensated for the significant work they do in providing the very best BBQ for our guests.
We implement this to keep up with the rising costs in the Boston Area, and provide a better living wage by more equitable distribution of your dining dollar.
It is important to note that this fee goes straight to the kitchen staff, as opposed to a general price increase that would not benefit them as directly.
We hope you will feel the positive impact, and we appreciate your support in recognition of our back of house employees’ hard work, and their commitment to quality every day, every shift.
This is absolutely voluntary, and if you wish to not pay it, please let your server or bartender know and we will be happy to remove it for you.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments, a manager is here to speak with you!
Thank you for your continued patronage and supporting the Smoke Shop BBQ!
