We often pickup food for dinner from Smokey Bones. We are members of the "Bones Club" which gives points for purchases resulting in discounts on future orders, making this restaurant more affordable. The salmon is among the best tasted at any restaurant so far. The pulled pork is so delicious. Try it! You'll like it too.

My husband, son, and daughter and I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. Atmosphere is very casual and decor is horrible. Don't go for the ambience. Also there are message boards - Cartoon-like signs posted as part of the decor with offensive lines like, " drink with pregnant people" with a picture of a pregnant woman pretty far along just...

Smallest wings I have ever seen. Where do you buy wings that small. We are going to rumors. Their wings are much larger

Had a group of 7 to celebrate Mother's Day. Booth was dirty looking when we were seated. I brought it to the attention of the hostess that was seating us and she said it was just paper. Did not offer to clean it up or wipe it down. We also did not have silverware so we asked for it when... More

We go here a lot because of the membership and coupons but surprisingly the food is also very good. The atmosphere is a sports bar but it is family friendly

Had dinner here with friends. Everyone got something different an everyone walked away happy! Service was good. Got her in time to avoid a wait, so it must be popular for locals.

Our smokey bones has been closed for a while so we were excited to see this location. Food wasn't quite as great as we remember -with the exception of the ribs. Turkey burger was also a flavorful light option- would recommend!! Nice people working here. Eerily empty at noon. This is a big place so with only around five tables... More

Not my favorite barbecue in Louisville, but it was close and we were hungry. I imagine they do the best they van within franchise guidelines, but the baked beans we a corn syrup train wreck and the Cuban sandwich used mayonnaise instead of BBQ sauce or mustard, so it was a greasy mess. Yes I know this is not the... More
