Ive been here several times over the years. The food is typical darden fare( think red lobster,olive garden etc) it was lot nicer in side wheb it was geared more to family dining and not the beer and football crowd. Food was decent and service was excellent.(esp for a chain restaurant).

we sat at the bar during the week around 5:00 PM for a couple of beers and decided to try one of their appetizers. We selected the pretzel sticks, however when they arrived they looked all wilted and were very rubbery. These must have been cooked or reheated in a microwave! All it took was one bite to know that... More

This was our first visit to Smokey Bones BBQ and we can't wait to go back! The décor was comfortable. The staff was welcoming and accommodating and the food was delicious. We started with the nacho's platter with no meat. The cheese was tasty and the seasoning made this appetizer stand out. My husband had the steak with bacon and... More

If you like BBQ you wshould like Smoky bones the BBQ meat was tender and had a nice BBQ flavor, you also get your choice 5 different sauces. I reccomend the rib combo half rack of ribs plus pulled pork as my favorite. we have not been disappointed yet.

We love out BBQ and Smokey Bones does not disappoint. Great family restaurant and the food was great in particular the St. Louis ribs and the brisket. The food does not arrive smothered in sauce, sign of a true BBQ place, as there are several sauces on the table to choose from.

We had to wait about 25 minutes for a table but it was worth it. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals. The wings & pulled pork were very good. The ribs weren't quite "fall off the bone" tender but they were tasty. Also, the small steak was very good. Wine was very reasonable. The meal was a little slow... More

The barbeque was excellent, our family had both kinds of ribs, a burger, and brisket. Food too a little longer than expected but they were busy. The waitress seemed to disappear at times, in the area we were in there were three waitresses but they seemed to have tables spread all over which may be why it seemed they disappeared... More
