I visited The Boneyard with friends last Sunday evening and couldn't believe how bad the food was! Our server was very pleasant but our meal went straight down from there. I ordered a Mediteranian Chopped Salad that really was not fit to eat! My girlfriend ordered the same salad and had the same thing to say. My friend's wife ordered... More

Excellent barbecue. Try everything including the brisket, ribs and sausage. Ample sides including fried mac and cheese. Supreme beer list and service! Go!

Can I write beef ribs 50 times? The cornbread is amazing the pulled pork dumplings!!!! I love the beef ribs with the dry rub and the local beer flight. My wife likes the baby backs with the wet. Haven't had a bad meal yet.

We have enjoyed going here almost since the beginning. Not only is the BBQ expertly prepared, but the menu offers both Boneyard Classics and seasonal dishes (crab ceviche in photo). There are rotating beers offered by local craft brewers and a good wine list. Kudos to owner Aaron Robins.

The "Grilled Meat" dinner: $30 or so. "Side" dishes: between $3 and $7. Sandwiches: $16 to $18. Hickory smoked chicken: $17 to $19. I ordered the Ribs and ¼ Chicken with Cole Slaw and a soft drink. With the tip, my dinner was just under $40. The food was good and so was the service. However, I didn’t think it... More

Met some friends for an early dinner and drinks! Casual, lively atmosphere with very unique and upscale BBQ menu. Fantastic and different drink menu as well. The service was friendly and helpful. Loved the pulled-pork dumplings and stuffed dates! Absolutely delicious!

After a long drive on the 405, we wanted to try something different. Wanted a beer and good late lunch. First time here, liked the Yelp reviews so called for a reservation. We loved our meal, loved Drew our server, had 45 (I think) beers on draft and great tropical tea for those not looking for alcohol. We tried (4)... More

Our first time to Boneyard Bistro was a lot of fun! We went for a family birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the experience. We were seated immediately for our reservation, enjoyed pre-dinner drinks and much laughter. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers something for everyone with a friendly bar atmosphere, bistro food and upscale bbq.... More
