Always good

We've been coming here for many years and the ribs are always pretty good. It's not like the ribs you get at a 'rib joint', but it's the next best thing. I really like the pulled pork and ribs. I recommend this place.

A really good place to get BBQ in a place that doesn't have many BBQ restaurants. The wings are always terrific.

The service was very friendly and it is a nice establishment. I found the prices to be a bit high for a sandwich and soft drink.

Our server was not very good. Portions were ok. The fish I had was not good. Some people had wings and said they were not as good as usual.

We regularly go to Texas Roadhouse, Wes's Rib house, etc. We went to Smokey Bones because we were hungry and there. Worst experience in a long time. First, what were they thinking when they chose the décor. What brilliant executive decided to go for the tiny slice of the population - what they must think are hip young people (you... More

All I can say is if you like BBQ Ribs Pulled Pork this is the place for you. You can even pick what kind of sauce from their list. And if your paying with a credit card you can do it right at your own table.

We all know restaurants tend to make lousy and expensive drinks but SB's brings it to unprecedented levels. I've watched them make mixed drinks- they barely put an ounce of booze in. Imagine the gall of getting a 2 ounce Kettle martini, really outright criminal to gouge patrons like that. The bartender said it was 'corporate policy' then added it... More

The drinks and food was perfect for our family get together. The restaurant provided us with two waitress which kept the food... More

We went as a party of 8 on a Saturday night. The server was friendly, but seemed new. Our drinks came fast and so did refills. She did not clear the previous cups though. We ordered appetizers, fried pickles and buff-a-que wings. They were wet and previously had been dry on other visits. My daughter ordered the macaroni and cheese,... More

Smokey Bones is a great place for BBQ, but keep in mind it is a sports bar on the weekends and at night. As a result, it can get a little loud. We've eaten here a few times and have come back because of the great food. We've never had any trouble with orders being right and the service has... More
