Made a reservation through OpenTable and was asked to select a ‘table type’ and I selected ‘Standard’ coz I don’t want to dine in the bar or counter. But guess what, we still ended up sitting in one of the most uncomfortable bar stool you can imagine! We asked if we can go to the 2nd floor and they said it’s not open, we asked if we can seat in one of their 4 seater table since it’s not busy anyway and they said no too. So we were given a table underneath the stairs and we’re really disappointed coz why do you get to choose your table upon reservation and in the end they put you to this lousy inconvenient tables/area. Plus the tables/stools are so tiny that you don’t have anyplace to put down your coat. Yes they do have a coat rack, the kind that can accommodate 2-3 coats lol. And since there’s already coats hanging in the rack, our coats stayed in our lap for the duration of our dining. Talk about having an enjoyable dinner, NOT!
And the food, OMG I don’t understand why people give this restaurant 4 or 5 stars since the food is nothing spectacular!
Ordered the following BBQ:
- 1/2 lbs Side Ribs - they were tough and dry. For $19.90 you would think that you’re getting at least decent ribs but oh no you’re not! I’d rather eat Swiss Chalet’s ribs (and I hate hate Swiss Chalet) that’s when you know Smoque N’ Bones’ ribs are bad.
- Their Smoked Chicken ($16.90) is the same story, tasted more like burnt than smokey.
- Sweet Potato Waffle Fries($7.90) - of all the food we ordered, this is the only thing we enjoyed. The natural sweetness of the potatoes and its crunchy texture makes this an okay dish.
- Grilled Corn with Chipotle Mayo & Smoked Cheddar (6.90) - they split 1 corn into two, slathered it with mayo and cheese and charge you almost 7 bucks for a side that doesn’t even taste good. Nothing special, I bet you can make this yourself and it won’t cost you this much.
Overall after experiencing back problems and sore behind (from the hard uncomfortable stools), unaccommodating service and uninspired/expensive food, there’s no way I’m coming back here.
