When they first opened, the service and food and prices were great, now, years later, it has deteriorated to poor. Chicken wing sauce is good, sometimes the count of wings is short, Food is sometimes good but prices are out of line. Barely, if any detectable alcohol in the drink which consists of a glass full of ice and small... More

The food is okay, but by no means great. Portions compared to plate size make the food look sad. I'm usually very unimpressed with service. We try to avoid eating here unless we have a free dessert coupon (sad, I know).

Good Food, and they have a wonderful selection of beer and cocktails. Service is always friendly and they seem to enjoy their jobs. The music selection is great also. Its my late night spot because they have a great late night menu and the bartender is on point!

This was my third trip to Smokey Bones...and my last. I ordered the waitress' recommendation, the brisket and pulled pork. My food was not warm when it arrived. My brisket was so fatty, I found it inedible. It was empty on a Sunday afternoon when nearby reastaurants were packed. Now I understand why.

Our food was good and it is definitely worth going back to try more of what they have to offer. The menu shown on here is not the complete menu; there are a lot of options. I had fish and chips and was a little disappointed. I would rather had more fish than batter. It was very crispy. The staff... More
