Long wait, ran out of food

Came here on Saturday evening and waited nearly an hour. Once seated and having placed the order the waiter came back and told us that they had run out of brisket! Really? On a Saturday evening at 7:00 PM?

Using a coupon from the paper, we decided to try Smoky Bones. We were promptly and nicely greeted at the door and advised that it was still happy hour with half price appetizers. While we deliberated that, our server, Lacie, came by to introduce herself and take our drink order. They are a Coca Cola establishment which is another plus.... More

Good food and okay service, they need to improve on the cleanliness of the restaurant like sweeping under the tables, there was no offer of up-sale for desert.

I have had very good service and food at this location in the past. However, this occasion the Brisket was tasteless and the sauce was unremarkable. I will say that my wife enjoyed her food although she did note small portions. I will go back again and not let one disappointing experience ruin what has been in the past an... More

Why would an empty restaurant serve cold food? Waitress did not know why the food was cold. Pulled pork , baked potato and broccoli were very cold. Food returned and brought back hot and very dry. If you are looking for fresh food, it is NOT smokey Bones!

We always go for the baby back ribs. They are usually very moist, meaty and flavorful. Service could be better, and frequently, food has to be returned to the kitchen as it doesn't always come out hot.
