This is our preferred" go to" place to dine whether a weekday or on the weekend. The menu is diverse, the wait staff are courteous and knowledgeable, and the service is right on! If you are driving by 71 S. and get to the Grove City exit (Stringtown), jump off and stop by. You'll be glad you did!

Six of us stopped for dinner on a Friday night. Waited about 30 minutes to be seated and then had a great dining experience. The staff brought us drinks quickly and the waitress recommended their broccoli as one of their featured side dishes. It was the best broccoli I have ever had. The ribs were very good and they had...

Visited on a Sunday afternoon and received good, but not great service. Before we were done, four servers had taken care of us - one took our order, a different one brought our salads, another brought our meals, and a fourth filled our drinks and later brought our bill. No one checked on us to see if our meals were... More

4 of us popped in for a quick snack before heading to a family party later that afternoon. Service was slow and marginal. Server must have said "Sorry" 5 or 6 times during a 30-45 minute experience. Food was ok, but, nothing special.

I ate at this restaurant while staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Columbus/Grove City; it is within walking distance. The atmosphere, bar and food was all good.

Great food. Fast and friendly service. My family has been there several times. I believe this place doesn't get enough credit!

First time at Smokey Bones and I was very displeased. My friend and I went to lunch and wanted to try something new. We we're both very disappointed. Personally, I didn't think their ribs were that great. You would be better off buying a pack of ribs from Kroger and making them yourself. My friend ordered a hamburger and complained... More

They accomodated our party of 16 as best they could on a friday night. Waitress was good, overall, just didn't come around enough. The food was average at best. Slightly overpriced for what you get. I got a combo of brisket and smoked wings. Brisket was good, but the wings were terrible. The Mustard BBQ sauce was very good, though.
