A great meal and great beer

This was my first visit to this Smokey Bones and it was a perfect experience. The service was spot on perfect, a friendly smile and lots of help. The chicken soup I had was incredible. When you pick actual chicken bones out of your soup that means it's not canned crap. I had the three meat platter... read more

We love to go to Smokey Bones when we want to relax, watch TV at the bar and enjoy great food. I love the salads and the appetizers are great. I wish they hadn't stopped serving the dessert bites. They were delicious. Oh Yeah, and the margaritas are really good too.

We've tried eating here a few times before but always ended up sitting next to screaming children. Tonight we decided to try it again. What a mistake! Service was extremely slow. Our waitress took over 20 minutes to recognize us and the place was very empty and enough wait staff wandering around. Then she took our drink order and disappeared... More

This place is way too expensive and the menu selection sucks! Everything on the menu revolves around beer! We didn't have a good experience the first time we came here yrs ago but decided to give it another shot...horrible decision...never again!

Chicken and ribs were both amazing, tender, juicy and delicious and a nice quantity of meat on the plate with two sides. Average pricing for good food. I would like to see some drink specials on something other than beer, full price for wines yet it's nice and cheap in the stores... everyone doesn't drink beer!

Very disappointed with food as staff was friendly. $12 for nachos that was a very small portion with barely any toppings. Came out cold, asked to see a manager but was told she was busy cooking. Sandwiches dont even come with ff's, extra charge!

We will never be back. The lettuce in the side salad was brown. Broccoli was also brown. My brisket sandwich was complete mush with little flavor. Thank goodness for the sweet potato fries because that was the only item that was good. They should put more effort in the quality of there food and worry less about the ordering device... More

I love BBQ and smoked meat and this was good. Everything we ordered was very good. Quantities were very good as well. The baked beans are good but sweet. I was disappointed that they only offered mac and cheese in a super premium side. For me beans with mac and cheese is the go to for sides. Very good sides.... More

Reliable dining experience. Food is good, reasonably priced, and service is very good. I expect they can get very busy, so plan for a wait time on weekends.
