About Us

The Old Canal Smoke House is located in historic downtown Chillicothe, Ohio. Here you can count on friendly service, a cozy atmosphere and amazing food in our newly renovated 1850s forge. With a variety of seating options, we can accommodate your party for any occasion. Private spaces also available. Please call for details.

Specializing in smoked meats, we are proud to offer a variety of both traditional and unique barbecue dishes. If smoked meats aren’t your thing, we still have you covered! Choose from our awesome selection of non-smoked appetizers, platters and sandwiches.

We also take great pride in serving the area’s finest craft beer, offering a draught menu of 16 beers curated with styles to suit any beer lover. If you’re looking for something to take home, we offer growler fills and have a great selection of rare cans and bottles. See our menu page for a list of what’s on tap and in the cooler today.

Last but not least, catering is also a big part of who we are. If you love our food in the restaurant, it’s just as good on the go! Options range from a budget-friendly menu of our pork and brisket to a more elaborate selection including ribs, salmon or prime rib for smaller groups. See our catering page for more information.
