Allright food, but nice place

So far the ribs and BBQ choices have just been ok, though some people do seem to rave about it, maybe we've just had more authentic and good BBQ in other areas of the country. It's basically chain store food, but the service is good, and the last big group we had in was served quickly. Lots of... read more

We go to Smokey Bones at least once a month. The ribs are always delicious n the corn bread with the yummy butter is a must have. If you register online they send you coupons.

Bar-b-que is good although it doesn't compare to some I've had in Kansas City. The burger was outstanding and cooked exactly to order. That doesn't seem to happen very often any more. The atmosphere was nice and the bathroom was clean. This tells me a lot about the management. Their Caesar salad was great and a good value for the... More

We were seated with our menus and watched other diners being served and interacting with servers. Not one server approached our table but passed it to serve others. We are rewards customers but apparently we deserved nothing today! So we walked out.

Worst dining experience ever. Because of one waitress meltdown the entire restaurant faltered. Took over an hour to be seated after we were crossed off the chart for a reservation, who has 4 hostesses!?!? None of them had a clue what they were doing. Finally got seated mind you we had 2 four year olds with us. A simple task... More

We ended our two day road trip to NY with a late night visit to Smokey Bones. We initially attempted to dine at Red Lobster next door but due to our 10 pm arrival they were unable to seat our party of 9. We were greeted warmly and offered seating immediately, both the hostess and greeter were polite and friendly.... More

Average explains this place best. I was hoping for something special, but the menu was loaded with the same old pub fare. The service was average, not bad, not great.

Their pulled pork, pulled chicken and pulled beef are to die for. It's a casual place, great to spend with friends.
