he Smoke House was built at the end of WWII and is one of the few L.A. restaurants of that era to survive until today. It has the decor and aura of a bygone age and has grown steadily with the expansion of the movie industry and through the kind support within the Burbank community.

The original restaurant was located at the corner of Pass Avenue and Riverside Drive and seated 46 people, it was enjoyed by local luminaries like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. The Smoke House was so successful and packed with customers that they soon began looking for a new building. In 1949 the Smoke House moved to its current location where the Red Coach Inn had been built.

Pointy Finger Valet Parking is available for $5.50, street parking is limited!
