Now you see it; Now you don't

Stopped by to try their heavily promoted prime rib. Several minutes after ordering, the server returned to inform us that the prime rib “wasn’t ready” and wouldn’t be available until six pm. It was a tad after 5pm at that time and the prime rib was advertised as being available after 4pm. So we... read more

The salad had no chicken and we ordered a salad that clearly had chicken on the menu. And the sandwich had bacon when we clearly asked for no bacon. Now waiting for a call back from a manager to get a refund. And the salad's cheese wasn't fresh, and the side of lettuce for the sandwich wasn't fresh either. It... More

We ordered a bar b que chicken sandwich and a grilled chicken salad to go and got a salad without any chicken in it and bacon in the sandwich, when I specifically asked them not to put the bacon in it..The chicken in the sandwich was dried and tough and tasted microwaved…Probably GMO fake food….I threw out my meal, never...

Service was real slow and they ran out of ribs and another entree the day we were there. We waited almost an hour for food to come out and kids were getting bored. Felt like after the slow service and the missing ribs we should of gotten a discount or a gift certificate for return trip but received nothing, not... More

We sat at the bar, ordered drinks. After 5 minutes were asked if we wanted food menus. After menus were provided, the bartender completely forgot about us. We had to literally flag her down after 20 minutes had passed. She was probably new and inexperienced, but it shouldn't be an excuse to poor service. Don't think I'll come back here... More

You figure a BBQ place that advertises "Fall off the bone ribs" would have a clue... Unfortunately, they do not. They also clearly let their staff miss the "Customer Service" portion of the training. IF management comes and pretends to care, they just try to feed you something else. If you came for tender ribs, and they offer it on... More

When I am in the mood for baby back ribs, there is only one place I would go here at Smokey Bones. I love that the meat falls right off the bone, and not chewy or tough. I also like the coupons they mail to us, making an incentive to go there and they're not too expensive for what you... More

Had a nice experience with the wait staff. They were efficient and pleasant. Now they included Fish & Chips on their menu, what makes it appealing to visit often! I wish they had more than one "good beer" on tap, but it is what it is.

Really wish they would open earlier than 4 so we could enjoy lunch there. Sometimes I'm a creature of habit when it comes to restaurants and tend to order the same things. For me, going to Smokey Bones usually means I get the babyback ribs or the cuban sandwich and either corn bread or onion rings. My last visit was... More
