Stopped in for lunch, went to the bar , sat for 10 minutes before a waitress/bartender stopped by to take our order. The same staff were seating people, taking orders, clearing tables, serving food, etc...they clearly were understaffed. A gentleman walked over to the bar and asked if he could place an order for his table because no one came... More

Very good. There was a confusion with the order but the manager had offered free dessert for the mistake.

Went on a Wednesday no wait the place looks good nice remodel. That's the good news - food was really just bad. We had the smoked wings that were so dry you needed the sauce. Flavor was good. The brisket on baked potato was dry and with literally 4 small pieces of dry brisket not worth $10. Pork tenderloin also... More

When it has to be skillet cornbread, it has to be Smokey Bones. Everything they have is crave able, but I have zero resistance to the cornbread.

I had to take a group of people from work out for a working lunch to discuss a project. The food was great. My staff was happy with the service and central location for the meeting. Plenty of space for groups, I highly recommend it.

We almost left as it took forever to get served because of being understaffed - but those workers there busted their butt! Once we ordered, we were VERY DISAPPOINTED about them BEING out of BRISKET at 5pm.... HOW!??? What we did get was AWESOME.. so, on a non-holiday, I am sure things would be much smoother...

Things were great. The best barbecue I have had I a while. The brisket was amazing and the baby-backs (all I can say is wow!). Great ambiance and great service. The Manager even came by the table to ensure everything was great, and it was!!!

Mommy daughter date night with my little! I wanted to start with something sweet and light, so I got the strawberry sangria and it delivered everything I craved! The food was amazing! We went straight to entrees with the petite sirloin and mashed potatoes. The sirloin was flavorful, tender, and very juicy! We got a side of macaroni and cheese,... More
