About Smokey's


Smokey’s has been described as the “hidden gem” of the Acadia region, showcasing a truly original concept of merging award winning BBQ with Maine lobster and seafood. A place committed to serving mouthwatering and innovative cuisine in a fun family atmosphere.

After years of running lobster pounds in the area for absentee owners, native born Mainers and friends Charles, Conner and Neal, decided to open Smokey’s in the Spring of 2017. Quickly, becoming popular due to their superior BBQ, Off-the-boat lobsters and cold craft beers

The Owners


Charles "Smokey" Kindya

Charles, "Big Cat", "Chuck", "C-booze", "Smokey", or as we call him just "Charl" is the 23 year-old BBQ mastermind who rises from his slumber early every morning to stoke the fires and bring you the best 'cue you've ever had. You can catch him out by the smoker or cooking up a storm in the fry kitchen, probably with a beer close by. If you see him let him know you enjoyed the food.


Connor "Sack" Scofield

Always fashionably late to a party he was never invited to, "Sack" is the everyman of the operation, transitioning seamlessly from the kitchen to the front of the house to endless maintenance work. He may be wearing his cook's cap and apron or his waiting attire (high wool socks and hiking boots), but no matter what expect his trademark sour humor and excellent service! 


Neal "Eelman" LaFrance

Neal "Eelman" LaFrance is the money man and a jack of all trades, master of none. To hear him tell it, he's traveled the world but don't get him talking about it, he can be really self-righteous for a prematurely balding man drowning in debt. He can be found waiting tables, in the kitchen, or stomping around frustrated about a project gone awry.
