My wife and I had wanted to eat here for some time but rarely get to this area of the Island. We had no trouble getting seating although it was a Friday dinner time. We sat near the bar area and enjoyed good service. They have a good system of calling the waiters through a table device much like calling... More

At first we figured it was a so called BBQ place but to our surprise it was much better than an average. We like BBQ and I BBQ regularly and have always received rave reviews but this is just for background. We ordered the wings and I have to say they were great, we continued with the 3 combo platter...

Good BBQ food. Best thing they close late at night! Their homemade donuts are delicious. Service might a little slow sometimes.

It has great atmosphere, and food was good. We had a large party and waited a really long time for our food. When the food came we had to remind the server we needed utensils to eat. Some peoples burgers came out too rare and the had to wait even longer to eat.

My daughter and I were visiting from out of town and were looking for a stick to your ribs (no pun intended) meal. Our trip to Smokey Bones was very disappointing. It serves me right for ordering salmon at a rib joint. It tasted like shoe leather; heavily seasoned and dry. My daughter ordered ribs and mashed potatoes. Virtually no... More

Went on a Friday night. We were a party of eight. Restaurant was not crowded at all. Yet our waitress would disappear for long periods of time. Apparently hanging with her group of girlfriends sitting at a table was more important than taking our order or bringing us our food. I had the prime rib and it was terrible. Plus... More

Me and my wife both thought the same thing it wasn't anything special. The wings are way to expensive and don't taste all that good for price. The bbq food was ok but very dry. The best part of the meal was mashed potatoes.

Food was ok but not worth the price. After being seated didn't get any waitress service for at least 15 minutes....understaffed.

This place is spacious and it needs it because it is so popular. It has fireplaces in spots and it has a number of big screen TVs so that sports fanatics can watch. My waitress was super cheerful. I was a bit skeptical about putting popcorn in my 3 cheese pasta dish but it turned out to be excellent. And... More

I was staying at a nearby hotel and was attracted by the curb appeal. I sat at the bar since I was alone and was impressed that they were broadcasting every NFL football game on the wide array of flatscreen TV's throughout the place. I was also impressed that they had Yuenling Lager on tap for a reasonable price. That... More
