Waterstone Grill

Route 66 Smokehouse is an American regional themed restaurant serving well known dishes found throughout the different regions along Route 66.

It is the only establishment in the neighborhood offering authentic localized American cuisine. Chef Billy Kooper’s menu features unique twists on beloved barbecue and Americana recipes with a strong emphasis on hand-selected ingredients from artisanal vendors. The theme continues on the beverage side, with an all-American whiskey list comprised of an array of highly allocated bourbons, ryes and whiskeys, served by the ounce or two ounce.

On tap is strictly 100% craft beer, and the cocktail list features libations inspired by landmarks along the restaurant’s namesake, such as: Amboy Crater, Whale of Catoosa, and Tucumcari, N.M. For the teetotalers, there’s a curated list of cult classic regional sodas like Cheerwine, Dad’s Root Beer and Bubble Up Lemon.

The restaurant’s décor reflects the hometown comfort and rugged charm of the famous road that inspired its name. The ceilings are covered in reclaimed wooden beams from Wisconsin, giving a cozy feel to the expansive 2-floor eatery, which seats 215. In warmer months, outdoor seating on Stone Street is available. Hand-painted murals on both floors add to the lively and colorful ambience.
