This was our first visit to this restaurant and we would definatly try it again. The rib eye steak that i had was possibly the best one ive ever had. Our waitress was very good, and when our meals came they were accurate to what we ordered.

Came a with my crew after a football game. The food was above average, but the service was average at best. The server continually forgot who ordered what, and even gave me a drink from another table. I had the brisket to compare to my own; it was juicy but lacking flavor. The mac-n-cheese and loaded mashed potatoes were really... More

Smokey Bones has to be one of my favorite dining spots. I'm a northerner born and raised and I love the energy and vibe this restaurant has, plus the food is just amazing. Everything has good flavor. The burgers are fire grilled, the ribs are smoked, and the beers are cold! I come in frequent and the staff definitely knows... More

We dropped in for lunch on a Friday--actually, I’d planned for two days to have lunch there this day. Having to fast prior to a morning medical appointment, I knew I’d be hungry for lunch and BBQ was on my mind. It had been a while since I’d had any and about six months since visiting Smokey Bones. The hostess... More

My wife and I shared a 3 combination platter and an extra vegetable. we tried all the sauces. The Chipotle was good and spicy, but the vinegar sauce was ridiculously good to us. My daughters had the smoked wings and said they were the best they ever had.

This restaurant was right on the Greenbrier Parkway close to the mall and other shops. Great place to stop and grab some food. Service was nearly flawless. The restaurant was very clean. The meal came out so fast, was cooked perfectly & nice and hot. Unlimited drink refills, bar drink prices looked very reasonable. Didn't have room for dessert, but... More

Had a good spinach salad and steak. Could have had another brand of N/A beer like Kaliber or Becks but salad was good. My friends had chicken and ribs combo. I was jealous but didn't gain five pounds on the trip.
