This was a normal chain restaurant that had a nice clean looking area with stylish decor. Our waiter, AJ, was excellent and actually seemed like a professional in the hospitality/service industry. Way better than expected. The food was of average quality. I'm perfectly happy with average as by definition that's the quality of most of the food I eat at... More

I went with family for lunch and we all ordered a variety of items. The fried pickles are uninspired and served with ranch dressing. the fries and garlic bread served with my bbq pork were not crisp. That said the bbq pork was good and the beer was cold

Start with a onion ring and fried pickles appetizers. Selection of different BBQ's and sides. Choose regular, spicey or hot sauce bottles at your table. Chicken tenders and fries from the children's menu. Delicious fish & chips of course with malt vinegar. Drinks to your taste and refills brought to your table before asking. Deserts for your sweet tooth.

Ate here last night and had an amazing meal. We shared the crowd pleaser starter which was more than enough for the 4 of us. For mains we had a mix of combos, ribs, fish, chicken etc and everyone was superb. Great service too made the meal really enjoyable.

Had lunch here recently for the first time. The place is very large, is good for families, large groups, many flat screens to watch sporting events. It's got a large center bar and plenty of booths and party areas. They have electronic ordering consoles at the tables so you can order, pay or call for service. PROS: Chose to "Build... More

Smokey bones is one of my go to places for dinner. I love the nachos with pork. The cuban sandwich is very delicious. The cuban is made with their smoked pork. My only issue is they cannot accomodate large groups. If you have more than 6 in your party you will need 2 separate tables. Kind of weird. The food... More
