Went here for dinner upon arriving in Orlando for the weekend. We were seated quickly - even though the place was busy. Server was a bit slow with the drink order but understandable given it was a Friday evening. The food was excellent, especially the beef brisket which I paired with a sweet BBQ sauce for the meat and the... More

It has been a very long time that we have been here, we stopped coming when they changed hands and the food & service got really bad. But now after 8yrs we decided to give them a try.....WOW.....What a surprise, they have really picked it up, just love the new design inside. The service is just wonderful, the food is... More

Pretzel bread very good. Nachos were awful and sent them back. They tasted almost stale, hard and burned. Combo was good. Ordered a side of gravy to dip fries. The gravy was the best thing we had.

Although there were many empty tables we were told it was a 25-30 minute wait. There were two families ahead of us and 2 chairs in the lobby, so there were 2 people sitting and 9 people standing waiting. My children sat on the floor to wait. There is plenty of room for a bench or some more chairs. It... More

Had the smoked ribs could not cut with knife, informed bartender, who's reply was i don't care. The attitude at this Smoky Bones needs to be changed to customer comes 1st. Saw food sitting under heat lamps for 5- 10 minutes at a time. Bad for Business

We had been to one of these restaurants before. The food here was good and tasty. The service was excellent (our tea glasses stayed full). Our waitress was friendly but not in your face overly so. The place was clean, the rest rooms were spotless. My only gripe was their little donuts that I always order are now priced over... More

Success does not breed quality. This place used to be good with no exceptions. Service is slow. The pork tenderloin did not look anything like the picture on the menu and the meat was a collection of tenderloin ends, dry and overcooked. Baby back ribs? Fall off the bone? Bring a chain saw to cut the meat off the bone.... More

Honestly I read reviews saying go there for the brisket. It was pedestrian at best. The beer specials were great, however. They have brisket and smoked wings on the menu but they don't even have white BBQ sauce. What is up with that. It was fine, there was nothing wrong, but I did not leave there with the intentions of... More

Easy to access after arriving by air at Orlando or Kissimmee airports. Great food & prices. Easy access to Hwy 192 enroute to Westgate Vacation Villas, about 8 miles away.

I hate to bash a restaurant especially if the food was decent, and it was, but the service was so bad that it took away from the meal. It was a busy night, but there were seats at the bar so we decided to eat there. It took a while for the bartender to come over and ask us if... More
