Great BBQ Restaurant in Elkins, WV

Jon and wife Denise

In 2011, WV native Jon Magee established Smoke on the Water. Jon is an avid trout fisherman who has a fun loving laid back style. His passion for fishing, river life, beautiful WV scenery, and mouth watering cuisine were inspirations he wanted to share so Smoke on the Water was born. Jon and wife Denise have a unique style and have created a dining experience unsurpassed, and is something that should be experienced by all. They created an area and atmosphere for dining that makes you appreciate the relaxing river style of life. The views are spectacular and the BBQ is amazing. You can actually see and feel the great outdoors while enjoying food that you never thought could taste so good.

Our menu is designed to offer choices for the entire family. We offer fresh fish, traditional barbeque, seafood, pasta, appetizers, flatbreads, soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and delectable desserts. We are kid friendly and are sure your little anglers will enjoy the popular items offered on our menu.
