Food was great and staff was excellent. My mother ordered a dish which was too salty, the waiter immediately apologized and offered my mom another dish and the manager personally came out to apologize which was very good customer service which is rare these days.

Fun waitstaff who actually remembered us. Great ribs and nice salads. Gets very crowded on weekends so we usually go on weekdays around 2 when it is not crowded or noisy.

It is not surprising that, with a name like 'Smokey Bones' the dish to go for is ribs. We both had the St. Louis Ribs House Rack, one with mashed potato and creamy Cole Slaw and the other with a loaded baked potato. Needless to say it was a delicious meal that required the assistance of a 'doggie bag' to... More

Upon arrival we were told that the waiting time was 20 minutes. After more than 45 minutes we noticed that our table was given to a group of 12 people who had come 10 minutes before. By claiming the waitress she did not give us explanations and told us we had to wait additional time. We will never come back... More

We were there on Saturday, March 12. I ordered a combo meal with BBQ chicken and brisket. The chicken was very good but the brisket was so fatty I couldn't eat it. The waitress offered me another side dish only after I called her over. At that point I had eaten all the rest of my meal. The manager did... More

Everything served was very salty. Even when you tell the server to have the chef go easy on the salt, the food comes out ultra-salty. THIS IS A WARNING to those of us who are mature with higher than average blood pressure.

The meal was excellent. Dan served us really well. The restaurant wasn't busy, which helped, of course. I reccomend going between 5-6 for a quieter meal. The wings we had for a starter were incredible -- and powerfully spicy! (One suggestion would be to have a choice of spicy or sweeter sauce for the 'smoked' wings -- it was nearly... More
