I like it better than Red Robin but probably bc of the more adult atmosphere. The food is about the same caliber but has an alright bar. Similar to O'Charley's.

Everything is good. I have tried pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken. I like mashed potatoes, baked beans, corn. Try the Angry Orchard Cider with caramel and sugared rim. I would like to see more variety in sauces.

This is not Memphis, or Kansas City or Texas but Grove City, Ohio. But, you have to try any smoked meal (ribs, brisket, pork) at Smoky Bones. But start the meal with their smoke wings. They are the best I've ever had. When we travel to Grove City the first dinner is there and they do not disappoint.

It had been awhile since we had gone to a Smokey Bones and their menu has changed a bit, but still very good food. The beef brisket was good, the ribs were good, but the pulled pork was by far the best they had. Nothing to brag about the chicken fingers though, so stick with the smoked meats. The dirty... More

Never heard of this chain, but saw the sign as we were heading to our hotel and took a chance. Very personable young waitress walked us through the menu and kept our drinks refilled. Had pulled pork for one order and cup of Brunswick Stew with pork Cuban sandwich for the other and shared dessert. Brunswick Stew was the best... More

We stopped at Smokey Bones for lunch on a Saturday and the parking lot was empty. That had me worried at first. The waitress had a great personality, fast with bringing beers and food, and knowledgable about the foods. I ordered the pulled pork Sammie with fries. Pork was juicy, but lacked flavor. The BBQ sauces are tasty and vary... More

Ate here with my coworkers for dinner one night. Came to this establishment around 7:00 p.m. and were told there would be at least a 30 minute wait. No problem - it was super busy. Attempted to get a drink from/at the bar and could not even walk in! Not only were there no seats at the bar, you could... More

We love Smokey Bones due to the wide variety of items on the menu! Steaks are always cooked as requested-if you order medium is really is medium! We receive good portions, yummy food, and fun servers! Although this is a bar and grill, there is still a family friendly atmosphere. We love to eat here!

And by far the best In Grove City. I'm not a BBQ coneseur, but I do know the difference between good BBQ and bad BBQ. Smokey Bones has GREAT BBQ. Prices are high, but that's what you expect from a quality BBQ places. The fries were OUT OF THIS WORLD. Do yourself a favor and get the really good fries... More
