Description: At Smokey Bones, we specialize in three things: good food, good drinks, and good times. We are a bar and fire grill, but not necessarily in that order. We are grill masters who respect the power of the open flame. We like simple, yet flavorful recipes and believe marinating is not to be taken lightly. We know medium-rare isn't the only way to cook a steak, but believe it should be. We believe pork should be slow smoked and pulled often. Slow, as in 11 hours over hickory logs every night, and often, as in every day at every restaurant. We know it's our bartenders who make our drinks great, not the liquor. Although the liquor doesn't hurt. We think beer should be ice cold and consumed regularly. We know our servers bring much more than food to the table. We are big fans of sports, loud music, and surprises. And we believe in laughing often, especially at ourselves

We were looking forward to some really good wings, having read the reviews. The food was barely warm and pretty average. There are much better bbq restaurants in Orlando.

What really lets this place down is the truly awful service. Once seated we had to wait 20 minutes to place our order. Even then I had to find a waiter and ask to be served.

When the food (finally) arrived we then had to ask for cutlery - which we then waited ten minutes for. By which time the food was cold.

Maybe we caught them on a bad night - but it isn’t a restaurant I’d recommend at all.

Used UberEats to bring food to Florida Hospital. Delivery was as promised.

Very disappointed in a couple of items. Mac and Cheese $13.00 nothing special little something added to spice it up. But the serving size was very poor. Also ordered baked apples $3.50 10 small slices.

Also had Brunswick stew very good but only warm. Need to figure out a way to keep things warm.

Donuts cold but as always great.

We both had chicken and it was good but not smokin hot. Neither was the potato or vegetable. Every thing tasted good but it wasn't very hot. Otherwise the service was quite good and the service plates were very hot.
