Ok

It was just another meal. We were expecting that WOW factor with signature sauces but no. I rather look up a good recipe and go through the trouble to make at home.

We had dined at this restaurant a few times because a couple we go to dinner with like to eat there. We went for dinner with them and had an average dinner. Not bad, but not memorable. Our server was very pleasant and this would have been another average dinner. We received our credit card statement and we were billed... More

Smokey Bones consistently serves a good meal at a good value, but a great server really makes the difference. This evening we were served by Kayla. She was congenial and attentive. She made sure that all of our needs were taken care of in an enthusiastic and efficient manner. It was easy to enjoy the meal during her service.

Typical (and good) american bbq restaurant. They are supposed to be famous for their smoked wings and I think they deserve it. Service was quick and good. A good option in Plantation.

Food is good. Wait staff is good as well. If you order for take out sometimes I have had to wait a bit. Take out staff is usually flustered and not so friendly. But wait staff inside to eat is wonderful

went to the one in Orlando, had a great experience. Tried this one (in plantation), totally opposite...bad service, mediocre food. Thought it might have been an off night..went back a few weeks later...nope same crap service and crap food. Will never use the "points" card we signed up for...really disappointing

I had lunch at the Smokey Bones in Plantation yesterday and the food was very good. Even they are noted for their BBQ ribs, chicken, burgers, wings, I always order the grilled salmon and it is terrific. Comes with 2 sides and you can order the onion rings as a slight up charge but well worth it.
