Smokey Bones is a BBQ chain that has nice tender smoked meat. Real nice BBQ flavours and pretty good selection of sauces. My wife & I had the brisket, pulled portk and sausage. All were very tasty. We also enjoyed the cole slaw very much. The atmosphere is relaxed, although you sit at individual tables rather than traditional family style.... More

We were at Smokey Bones, Plantation, FL on Sunday evening (Dec. 28, 2014). I meet up with my friend monthly there for dinner as it is the halfway point between our homes. We were excited as we got the mailing about the prime rib as a limited holiday entree over the weekends. We were there between Christmas and New Year's... More

Visited there with friends prior to taking a cruise. We hadn't been there in about three years. Food average as well as service. Had the ribs which I found to be so so. Found the prices a little on the high side. So overall, nothing special but ok.

The ribs did not taste good. I will not go to a Smoke bones bbq again. The atmosphere was ok. and the place was fairly crowded. I went for pickup therefore can't comment on table service. pkup was ok. That is all I remember.

It:s been awhile since I been to Smokey Bones because all the location near me closed. I'm giving this location only two stars. The portions are much smaller and the price larger. The great BBQ taste is missing.

The first thing was the teeny bopper music that was blaring while multiple football games were blaring from the bar area. It sounded like the crap they play in those Disney shows like ICarly. It made it difficult to carry a conversation with your party when you can't hear yourself over the boy bands. The appetizer that we specifically requested... More

I tried this place twice. Food is ok, portions are small for a bbq place. The BBQ chicken has a seasoning which doesn't really compliment it. I had an issue with with the service. I went on a Saturday afternoon to watch a football game, There were only 2 people sitting at the bar with 6 TV's in front of... More

Have eaten here more times than I can possibly remember. We visit the Plantation area every three months, when we travel up from our part-time residence in Costa Rica. Since our Secretary and her husband live in the Plantation area, it is always very convenient to make a date with them, to meet up at Smokey Bones for dinner. My... More

1 p.m Saturday about six guests for lunch. Never saw it so empty. Had their new Southwest Burger (good, but could have been spicier). Friend had their "new" fish and chips - looked like the old one but at a higher price. Service was very good.
