I came here with my boyfriend for dinner and had a great night. We were seated quickly and our waiter was very friendly. I got the pulled pork and it tasted amazing. Would recommend to others and will probably be back soon!

I really enjoy Smokey Bones BBQ, and last night was (I think) the best yet. I had an entire rack of baby back ribs that was super moist, sweet, and just fell of the bones. It was wonderful! Even their side dishes were excellent. (I had the baked beans and coleslaw.) I don't get the "BBQ snobs" who turn their... More

We went to this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. The manager acted like we had never had a big party. We asked for separate checks (5 in total). Only easy was to all sit together couldn't let hockey girls sit together. He said if we didn't do that we could leave. Now the two waitstaff assigned to... More

I love Smokey Bones and have been a repeat customer many times. Their donuts for dessert are good. But not nearly as good as their cheesecake bites were.They were absolutely delicious !! They need to bring them back!!

Went there with no expectations. Staff were great, food was bad. Ordered back ribs and links. They gave me side ribs. I pointed it out and they chose to debate it. I bbq at home every day. I have entered bbq contests. I definitely know the difference. They were over cooked and dry to boot. Frankly the best part was... More

Went here for the first time in a long time. The food was great. The service was even better. The only concern is that it seems in disrepair. There was paneling missing and the tops of the half walls are tore apart and half finished. The manager, middle aged, dark hair, heavy set gentleman was a bit disrespectful and rude... More

This Smokey Bones used to be a great place, but it has gone down hill. In a combo meal of 3 meats plus sides, we received 4 very small pieces of brisket which were more than half fat, 4 tiny wings and a small portion of pulled pork. This used to be a great value but was certainly not worth... More
