Our dinner was enjoyable. There was no wait at 7:30 on a Friday evening. My steak was well cooked & the side items were tasty. I can't say that it was unique or interesting.

Please note, this review is just about the wings! They have the best chicken wings. Of all the places that offer Wings on their menu , these are without a doubt some of the best!

We are always glad to find a Smokey Bones restaurant, as most of the ones in our area have closed. We have to travel almost 40 miles to eat at one. Love their skillet cornbread with maple pecan butter! Butter is delicious. The entrees we've had are always good and the service is usually good.

Recommend the California Club, Smokehouse Chicken, or any burger. Nice bar area with high top tables or service at the lengthy bar. Plenty of TV's for viewing of numerous sporting events. Nice family seating area... More
