Was in town for business and flew solo to this joint one night. Had a rib and pulled pork combo along with some broccoli (trying to keep it healthy...at least in my mind). Both meats were just average...cooked well but lacked great flavor. The broccoli was undercooked. I did not catch the guy's name but the bartender was attentive and... More

This Smokey Bones In Wilkes Barre was more like the first one. The service was friendly and the food was really good. Would definatly return to this location in the... More

We tried this for the first time Sunday for lunch. We had the broccoli cheese soup, which was pretty good, and another beef type soup. The sandwiches (brisket and buffalo chicken) were both pretty tasty, although the bun sort of overwhelmed the brisket size wise. The leaning tower of chocolate was awesome! Will probably go back again.

My husband and I haven't been there in a while and was really looking forward to going. As soon as the server came over she rattled off all the food they were out of, which included Beef brisket, turkey, and some other dinner item that I can't remember. We just said ok no problem, figured we'd find something else even... More

We hadn't eaten there in a few years so took advantage of being in the area. Had some really good sandwiches along with their brunswick stew. If you like pulled barbeque meats with tomatoes and corn, then this is the 'soup' for you. It is delicious. They also had a decent choice of beers.

BBQ foods great, steaks terrible. If you want a steak go to a steakhouse. Both visits at 4 ish on a weekday. Had to wait 15 min for seat, lots of tables available, both visits. Wait staff nice, but they forget about you after you get your food. They don't respond to red light on pay at table device. Waiter... More

I love going here! I am a vegetarian and I love Smokey Bones! Their corn bread might be my favorite thing on the menu! As soon as we walk in I make sure to order it, just delicious! The staff has always been welcoming and friendly.
