I haven't been there in quite some time. The last 2 times I went in there I was hit with cigarette smoke. One time someone was smoking in the entry way. That was awful. The other time I think I could smell the smoke from the smoking section. That place is way too small to have a smoking and nonsmoking section. They need to make the whole place nonsmoking. Also, I think I sat there a little while, was not waited on, so I left; good thing because of the smoke. I suggest they do away with the smoking/liquor area in the back and make it all nonsmoking......a family type place.

The Smokehouse isn't a family place. People smoke. Get over it. The tobacco they are smoking helps the local community, because of local tobacco growers. Move north and quit your bitching.

Okay, so money is more important than good health?

The Smokehouse is not the only restaurant where smoking is allowed in Fulton. I'm an ex-smoker but I would never try to push people to stop smoking because I don't anymore. If I don't want to go into an establishment, I don't. It's my choice. Ex smokers should get off their soapbox and allow other adults to do as they please. Ex-smokers remind me alot of all the athesist in the world trying to "save" the world from Christians.

People tend to forget that smokers are people too. They are too quick to demonize someone for doing something that makes the other happy. I will admit it, I smoke, and I go to restaurants and smoke, but I ask to sit as far away from the non-smoking section as I can, so I don't cause incident with non-smokers. Besides, places like the smokehouse need the income from people who smoke, just as much as people who don't smoke. Look at Paducah. When they went smokeless, restaurants lost a lot of business. If you still want to eat Smokehouse, but don't want the smoke, get the food to go. Spend time with your family at home around the dinner table, it tastes the same, but now with more enjoyable company.

You have some very good points, and you sound like a considerate person. Thank you for your helpful comments.

I guess one of the places where I used to eat in Fulton that I miss to some degree is B. Marcum's. The whole place was nonsmoking.......a very family type atmosphere.

I loved B. Marcums. It was a great place and it was a shame that the Lighthouse Cafe fell through. We need more up-to-date, non-smoking facilities for families, newer restaurants and for goodness sake, cleaner restaurants.
