Very disappointed.Went there craving some great bbq and that didnt happed. The service was slow and lacking. No background music, just an akwardly quiet slow atmosphere. The bbq chicken was not good and We just paid our bill and left most our food. Also it is really dirty and all the seats are torn. We need more good bbq joints!

I remember when this was a place to go- food was good and always busy at dinner. The last several times I was there the place looked old, dirty and unappealing. Food was decent, not great. There certainly were not the crowds that used to be there- half empty or more on Saturday evening. Only was there because of the... More

Dark, drab and dirty inside...most booths had tape repairs in the vinyl....dark dirty decor from the 70's. Restroom disgusting and filthy. Food: Smallest nastiest Reuben Sandwich I ever saw with a mountain of greasy so called "Cottage Fries" that filled 4/5 of the plate.

Maybe it's a Michigan thing, but a lot of restaurants that advertise themselves as being BBQ are not real BBQ. Real BBQ is cooked with smoke, low and slow. You cannot make BBQ in a roaster, an oven, on a grill, or my dousing something with BBQ sauce. The ribs at the Boneyard are expensive for just being spareribs as... More

Their chicken is really good, Cost is very reasonable. Cary-out service is also great. It is good place for watching sports, I been their several time - once for world cup soccer. Chicken was good. I do not like their potato chips.

If you like ribs, the ribs here are delicious. The bread and potatoes that come with your meal are also excellent.

Me and my sister stop there for dinner and had the worst tasting barbecue food we have ever had in our lifes. My sister ordered the trio and I ordered that lamb ribs and they were terrible....The bread that came with the meal was molded and the French fries taste like they had reheated them over and over again. Do... More
