Late Lunch at Smokey Bones

We had a late lunch and the place was rather empty. I like not waiting for a table. I had the Baby Back Rib combo with Baby Back Ribs and Brisket. For sides I had Fire Roasted Corn and BBQ Beans. The ribs were very good, the corn was delicious and so were the beans. My wife had the Build... read more

Smokey Bones is a chain restaurant, I went to my first one in Cincinnati, OH about 6 months ago. So I figured I would not be too surprised by anything different. Was I wrong. I tried their Rubbed Wings and man are those a treat! Definitely much better than the standard Buffalo wings served by most places. These have a... More

I would classify Smokey Bones as a typical chain-type establishment (quasi-sports bar) with the average non-descript food of average quality and price, with management instilled false-friendly staff. The food was so unremarkable I can't remember what I ordered!

This place was recommended and it was very good. It's not a joker when it comes to portions, very big on flavour, right up there with great service and the ambiance worked well. I would certainly recommend this place as an option. Plenty easy, secure & clean parking. Great value & truly comfortable on the pocket.

Nice place to eat ribs, but we did find the prices a little high for the quantity of food served. Despite the food being nice, we did not go again as we felt it was a little pricey.

I like Smokey Bones. Everything I've ever had there has been good. We needed a place close to our hotel, for take out , as our friends were going to watch a playoff game there with us. There were four adults and two kids. We had perfect football food...ribs, wings, pulled pork and barbecued chicken. My girlfriend and I ordered... More

We dropped in for a little birthday lunch this Sunday. This restaurant is a great value, especially considering you can almost always grab a $10 off coupon on the Sunday paper. The greeter at the door was very friendly and our wait crew appeared promptly. We highly recommend the cheesy fries and the Caribbean Cosmo to get you started. My... More

First time to Smokey Bones, looks like a chain in Florida. The food was good, but was disappointed that they were out of the brisket on a Wednesday night. We shared the combo platter, tried the ribs, pulled pork and spicy sausage (all good but the sausage was a little dry). It came with two sides but we ordered an... More

The food was barely ok, service was just ok, the gimmicky tablet on the table to allow you play games, order or pay won't make up for the things that are lacking.. nothing much else to say.
