We had just arrived from a long flight and were starving. We stopped in here for a bite. Food was very good and filling. Servings are large so I ordered off the kids menu and had plenty to eat. Staff was friendly and service was good. The only negative was my husband ordered 4 different beers before he found one... More

Stopped by for a snack. Happy hour started at 3 had few apps for half off. Drinks decent price. The menu has decent selection of bbq and burgers. The food I saw going to tables looked really nice. I'm definitely going back.

Everyone is so friendly. We ordered onion rings for an appetizer. They are served with a chipotle mayonnaise that is yummy. For our lunch we had pork sandwiches and a salad. Sandwich was great and the salad was fresh . I recommend Smokey Bones to anyone that is hungry for bbque..

We have fun, service was ok and the food and drinks were very good. No waiting line a Friday night so thats a plus. The server was kind of slow but he did the job. I have some wings with garlic parmesan... Very good!

I went here after a ball game for barbeque with my Dad! The good was okay, not great, but not bad! But apologizing (for inattentiveness)and calling me honey does not make good service!

Went to Smokey Bones after church today and shared a 4-meat BBQ platter - Pulled Pork, Smoked Wings, Sausage, and 1/4 BBQ Chicken (white meat). It was all amazing but the 1/4 chicken was literally the best we have ever had in our life! It melted in your mouth! Portions are great - we shared and still took enough home... More

Dinned here a couple of times over the last few years. Çalled in for lunch and was not disappointed. Nice friendly service and a good selection of food to choose from at reasonable prices. BBQ Chicken and St Louis ribs were very good. The strip steak was okay but not as good as we have had elsewhere. That being said... More
