Never clean a bar in front of customers...at 8:30??

Came to the bar to have some good wings, ribs and beer to kill a couple hours. Not even through my wings and the bartender, who wanted to leave early, was cleaning the bar with bathroom cleaner. While I am glad they keep the bar clean, does it have to be done at 8:30 pm and why not ask patrons... read more

We stopped here after noticing it from the road as we drove by. Who doesn't like good bbq? Our very helpful and friendly waitress/bartender helped us with our order. I had the brisket and my wife who has to eat gluten free ordered the ribs and we both had a couple of adult beverages. We both enjoyed our meals very... More

Dinner for five and not one person enjoyed their meal. Room temperature over cooked burgers and ribs after waiting for forty five minutes after ordering. Nice staff but clearly a problem in the kitchen.

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
