This place is a real find if you like elegant BBQ. I know that sounds strange, but this restaurant is a big cut above your local BBQ joint. Still has the wooden tables, but nice cutlery, a full bar with Johnny Walker Black very reasonably priced ($9), and the food is tantalizing. One side of the menu is regular BBQ... More

Tried Boneyard after reading Yelp reviews. Think the reviews are somewhat over rated given my personal experience. It is suppose to be known for its creative mixology and BBQ. First, the brisket is very good...you can order lean only for your choice of meat. They also offer pull chicken, ribs, fried macaroni and cheese, collard greens, fries, etc. I found... More

The location is easy to get to, the atmosphere was nice and the service was great. About the food.. I came here for Happy Hour for the $5 well drinks which were decent. I had the bacon building blocks and these looked over done but were tender and delicious. The house curing and double hickory smoked bacon really bought out... More

I've been to this place before.... I had hoped this time would be better but not..... Sorry but the happy hour isn't worth it..... Half price wine Wednesday isn't really what they claim..... Only certain bottles are half off. We went for a party.... Had to leave a deposit of 300 dollars to reserve a table..... One girl in the... More

Our server was Danny and he was nice and allowed us time to peruse the menu. I ordered plantains, baby back ribs, and beef brisket with collard greens and fried mac and cheese and iced tea. My...

That's because you can't find any parking during regular hours. Tried the fried macaroni and cheese, grilled brisket and cheese sandwich and hamburger. Great drink selection and some great wines. Happening place after a show. Loud and lively. Service just OK.
