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

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.

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

We visited with family we have not seen in a year by sharing a meal at Smokey Bones. There were 10 of us and they provided us with two long picnic style tables which were side by side.
