My boyfriend and I recently went to Smokey Bones for dinner with our one year old. Normally, dining out with the baby is a stressful and exhausting experience and we leave feeling like we have ruined everyone else's night- from the servers to the other people dining. Not at Smokey Bones! Our sever, Bobby, was great and I highly recommend... More

I stopped by to watch the end of the Daytona 500. Sitting at the bar, I ordered a glass of Merlot. The bartender quickly told me they were out of it. So I went to Sticky Fingers BBQ. They had the wine!

Just got into town and found this place within walking distance of our hotel. There were only a few people eating probably because it was a Thursday night, and there are restaurants everywhere in this area. Still, service was top notch with both hostess and waitress being very friendly and helpful. Food was served piping hot and quick. Brisket was... More

On the positive side, the restaurant is clean, the atmosphere was pleasant, the decor nice, the music was hip-hop but at a low enough volume not to be obnoxious and the server was friendly and efficient. However, the food was not good. My meat had a lot of fat in it and was actually crunchy. It tasted like it had... More

We went to Smokey Bones for supper. We were looking forward to some good BBQ. We had a good waiter, his name was Lane, a young man, very pleasant and attentive. We started out with a drink, they have craft beer, Lagunitas IPA on tap, and man it was good, my favourite. My wife had a glass of wine, she... More

Food was pretty good, loved the BBQ pork tacos. Drinks were good, the bloody mary's were excellent according to friends. Service by waitstaff was timely and very friendly. Highlight of the experience was a visit by the manager who recommended we bring bread out with us to visit a nearby drainage ditch to feed the turtles and catfish. The kids... More

Every member of our party was very pleased with the number of selections on the menu. Seven of us in our party and not a single complaint. Food was prepared the way we ordered it and it all tasted excellent.
