Consistently Good

We have eaten at Smokey Bones in Wilkes Barre, PA several times a year for almost ten years and have never been disappointed! The atmosphere is upbeat. TV sets above the bar are tuned to sports networks. Lively music plays in the dining area. Brisket, ribs and other meats are smoked on-site; fresh... read more

We thoroughly enjoyed the casual and clean setting. The service was great and the BBQ was excellent. We highly recommend soft pretzel sticks as a great bar snack or appetizer! Can't wait to go back for more.

The menu is extensive and the decor is fun. I had a really hard time choosing. The sides are just as good as the main selection. Bring your appetite when you go there. Service is fast and friendly. Would definitely go again when we are in the area.

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.

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, loaded enough to... More

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!
