This food at lunch was super. I had BBQ pork sandwich and baked potato. Super tasting. However I wanted BBQ tacos...out of soft taco shells. The waitress was good. The bathrooms were overflowing with garbage and pieces were missing from the wall edge.

This used to be a restaurant I enjoyed...no more. The last few visits have each been worse than the last and Wednesday night's was the last straw for me. There were six of us adults and I think only four finished their meal. Mine was supposed to be a Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. It was an unappetizing grey sodden... More

I visited Smokey Bones on Monday last week to watch the MNF game and fell in love. I was referred by my brother and when we got there is was all-you-can-eat wings after 9pm. Although my co-workers ate well, I would say that I was happiest. The service was great but the smoked wings was thee best wings I have... More

We dined late night after a show. There were patrons enjoying trivia night, which made the experience interesting. Our server was very good, personable and attentive

We dined at Smokey Bones a couple of years ago and it was excellent. We were attending an event at MSU and went back. It was a real disappointment. Our pork tenderloin was over cooked and lacked flavor, a small portion and a very poor value at $14.95. The restaurant uses an "at table" system to pay your check and... More

I love meetings here, always good food and a good time. You cannot go wrong on ribs and pulled pork. The ranch salad dressing is a strong pass on. It is a garlic Parmesan and no where does it tell you that. Talk about shocking. Still great food

We love the dry rub ribs!!! Must have!! Love the ambiance of this location. Servers are always nice and accommodating. The bbq is good but a little over priced. Good place over all!

We stop at Smokey Bones every time we are in Lansing and pretty much always get the same things, My daughter gets the ribs and I get a steak - and we swap halfway through the meal. I've only been a little disappointed with the steak a couple of times - either too done or way too chewy. We used... More
