Everything about this place is awesome. Especially during the winter, my husband and I stopped for dinner on a snowy evening and Smokey Bones was one of the only restaurants open for business. There were very tired looking men who had plowed the snow all day and night having dinner. The wait staff as well as the greeters are smiling... More

Start with the positive. The food is amazing. I had 1/3 rack of St Louis ribs and pulled pork. Meat was very tasty and portions were adequate. I had mashed potatoes and fire roasted corn, and garlic bread came with also. All very good. Now the bad...took us about 20 minutes to be seated which wasn't the problem. When we... More

Very busy Friday night, we ordered the pulled pork and it wasn't up to standards for there food. Dry, allot of hard ends and just not what I was expecting. The ribs my wife ordered also (combo) were dry and real tough! For them being so busy I wouldn't have expected this type of food quality. I just don't like... More

We received a recommendation for this restaurant from a local college while on a visit. It did not disappoint as far as bbq food goes. There were 5 of us, and we all loved our food, including my two kids. Unlike other reviews, our waitress was great. She came by numerous times (but not too much), our food was exactly... More

The food overall was not bad, but the attention to detail was horrible. The burger that was ordered without onions was covered in onions. The kids pizza that said it was a cheese pizza had onions hiding under the cheese. The pulled pork had a sliver of bone in it and sliced my wife's gum. We brought it up to... More

Smokey Bones is right across the street from my office and we will occasionally stop in for team lunches. The food is great but you don't want to visit if you are short on time. They even asked us if we were in a hurry and we said "Kind of" but the food took forever to arrive anyway.

My son and I enjoy eating here. The selection of food is good and the prices aren't bad. Beware of a pretty lengthy wait on a Friday or Saturday night.

Food and service is good. Of all the chain restaurants, Smokey Bones is our go-to place, as food and service is consistently good.

One of the few places you can get dry rubbed ribs without any sauce on them. The sides with the meals are really good and fresh. The beer is cold. Service is good...even when the place is full.
