This Smokey Bones used to be a great place, but it has gone down hill. In a combo meal of 3 meats plus sides, we received 4 very small pieces of brisket which were more than half fat, 4 tiny wings and a small portion of pulled pork. This used to be a great value but was certainly not worth... More

My wife, I and a friend of ours, went here for a late Sunday lunch. We arrived about 2pm and the place was fairly empty. By the time we finished our meal Smokey Bones was close to full. I had the half BBQ chicken, My wife had the Fire Grilled Salmon. Our friend had a large hamburger. Everything was very... More

Had an ok dinner. Wings were good, ribs were edible, pulled pork sandwich was good and BBQ chicken good. Trip to the restroom was revealing. Water on the floor and mirror and trash container was overflowing. It was a mess. Kept feeling something sticky on my left sweatshirt sleeve before our food arrived. Tried wiping off the table and it... More

Had the babybacks, they were excellent. Service was very good, timely refresh of drinks and asking about food quality. All was pleasant and price was about as expected.

Unfortunately had to travel on a Sunday for business. The place was kind of crowded for Sunday football. The manager went out of his way to set me up where I could watch NASCAR on my own TV. Appreciate them caring enough about their customers.

Our waitress was adorable and fun. The manager let us know about the timing of our meal, and most of all the food was fabulous. We plan on visiting our Smokey Bones in Cranberry,PA.

The menu was so good, I had an awful time deciding what to order. Finally, I ordered the "Double Trouble" - A tag team of taste. 1/3 rack of baby back + 1/3 rack of house-smoked, St. Louis-style ribs + served with garlic bread. A tempting twosome. Despite arriving without reservations on a Friday night, we were seated within 15... More

We are not fans of chain restaurants, but had a great experience at a Smokey Bones years ago and were happy for the chance to repeat it recently when it was located close to our hotel. Wasn't the same experience we remembered.

Stopped in to play trivia on a Thursday night. The restaurant was full with little room. Over 20 teams playing trivia challenge. We ordered for our table and while the server was pleasant, the food came out cold and poorly timed. Our warmup appetizers were cool. The chicken nacho dip was actually cold, you scrapped the quesso cheese out of... More
