Today I selected this restaurant and I highly recommend it. The service was excellent, I got the attention of two waiters Skyler and Crystal, both super friendly and very professional. The food is exquisite and so are the drinks, in short, I would give them...10 stars instead of 5More

Smokey Bones in Citrus Park is our favorite restaurant for BBQ. It's like dining in a huge mountain lodge, except that we're hundreds of miles from any mountains. The BBQ and drinks are wonderful and affordable. They're always running a BOGO special on some type...of meat. When we were there, they had BOGO wings and $9.99 half rack baby back ribs with sides. The service is also very attentive and accommodating. When we're not sitting down in the restaurant for a meal, their takeout always comes with a smile, especially from Milenka. She always wants to make sure that everything is perfect. We appreciate the consistency in flavor, taste, and great service from one visit to the next.More

We met family at the Citrus park location of smokey bones. Our waitress Brittany was so knowledgeable about the menu and what was special was that Brittany was patient with my older cousin who always takes a long time to decide what she wants to...eat. Brittany listened to her and suggested a combination plate which was perfect. The food was delicious but the service is what will make us come back. Would give Brittany 10 stars if I could.More

They were very tough....Out comes the manager and says he is sorry. He doesnt ask me if I want another order he says "why dont you try our wings" This place is not worth the time to visit ever again!More

This was the worst ordering experience that I have had in years. The food is over priced, portions are small, and restaurant was out of two items but accepted the order. Then an additional item was left out of my order so that I had...to go back. Very few diners in the restaurant at 7:30pm on a Wednesday night, should be a prime time for the area. The one positive was that after a delay in a server assisting my to go order, the server who helped me was very polite and helpful. I would never eat here again.More

We've been loyal customers of this great b-b-q place since they opened near our house and go there frequenlty. During the pandemic, their tasty Family Feast became a to-go staple. The food has always been solid and very fresh and the staff always friendly. I...realize this is a tough time for restaurants, who are finding it difficult to find decent employees. But the last three times we've gotten to-go from this Smokey Bones, we've had long waits only to find the order wrong and the servers rude, disinterested and unapologetic. I'm giving the restaurant three stars because -- so far -- the food is still decent. I will probably be back, but am reluctant to recommend it to anyone until staff members are better trained and encouraged to be pleasant to customers.More
