Went to lunch with a friend and both had burgers with fries .Nice burgers and enjoyed sampling the bbq sauces with the fries. They often have coupons in the paper which allows you to visit more often .

Tough to not eat out every night when everything tastes like you just grilled it yourself! At least that's what it's like here at Smokey Bones in Liverpool New York!

Worth a try if you have not been here. Try the ribs and or pulled pork. The sides are all good. Friendly atmosphere and service.

Group of friends went for dinner. Server was good. Food was terrible. There was not enough meat on the ribs to feed a bird. Very dry. Coleslaw was tasty. Could use some remodeling, a facelift. There are many other restaurants in the area to try. We would not return.

I really do enjoy this place. I stopped by for dinner as I passed through town last week. The ribs are very good here, although I recommend the Baby Back ribs over the other variety (St. Louis?). I also recommend using the green-topped sauce bottle, which (I believe) is a sweeter, "cherry bomb" variety, although I may be wrong about... More

The service was very good. The carpet needs replacing. The guy calling out bingo numbers was loud and annoying. (That's right, there was an organized bingo game going on at 7:30.) Most of the food was alright. But not the brisket. It was more like chopped pot roast. Not right,not right at all. They say it goes through the same... More

This was our first time at Smokey Bones. My husband tried the Smokehouse Chicken and I had the Baby Back Rib Combo with Pulled Pork, BBQ Baked Beans and Loaded Baked Potato. Both meals were absolutely delicious, and enough to bring leftovers home. Our server Nick G. was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
