Went with my husband as part of my birthday celebration on a Thursday evening (5-7 p.m.). Food was just okay and service was slower than if the restaurant was full. Used my discount that was emailed to me, but the full percentage was not deducted. Disappointing. I still like the restaurant, but my husband says he's not going back.

I absolutely enjoy this restaurant! The service was good, the environment is perfect and the smell of those smokey bones are delightful!! You must try the pulled pork nachos..

I ordered a slab of St Louis ribs. I received a fatty cut of meat- no bones seen. I can't believe that a restaurant would consider serving this disgusting piece of "meat" and call it ribs We waited a long time to be seated. The restaurant was half full Clearly this place needs help

We went to Smoky Bones because our previous experience was very positive. I was in the mood for ribs so four of us met there last Friday night. Pros: We were seated in the dining section but could see the Indians game on TV. Some of the food was good. One person in our group got the pork tenderloin and... More

This restaurant keeps people coming back with their marketing strategy of coupons. They also come out with some GREAT SPECIALS, however neglect to keep them as menu items unfortunately. They have gluten free menu selections and that's very important now. Keep up the good work. My only suggestion would be make the staff uniform just a little bit more refined... More

This is my dad's favorite restaurant so we go for every one of his birthdays. I always get the pick 3, which fills me up every single time. Smokes wings are delicious. The bag of hot donuts are a must. Great for family or friends or even couples. I'm never disappointed.

We all get a less than satisfactory meal once in a while. It could be a staff shortage, cook shortage, busy, etc., I like to give the benefit of the doubt once, but the last three trips to this establishment have been poor all the way around. Our last visit was on 6/24 and the place was not very busy... More

My husband and I went on a Wednesday evening. The place was not crowded at all. We both ordered st. Louis ribs; I also got the smoked wings combo. We ordered fried pickles as an appetizer. The drinks were tasty. The fried pickles csme out dripping in grease. My ribs were juicy and good, however, they had a re-heated/left-over taste... More

Have visited here several times when on business in the area. Fitstly they do both dogfish and two hearted enough said. That would do me but to make things better the bbq is great. Love the brisket and smoke sausage topped off with the baked beans and dirty rice. Off to bed a happy little boy. Cheers.
