The turkey was dry, again, but all else was very good. Do try the cornbread! The variety of drinks was nice and the burgers delicious. This is a chain.

Went for a late lunch/dinner. I had a burger and fries. My wife had the Beer Batter fried fish. She really enjoyed it. Both were very good. We also had a huge nachos, as an appetizer. That was a meal in itself. There were a lot of take home boxes. Everything came to the table, piping hot. The waitress was... More

For lunch we had a pulled pork sandwich and a chicken salad. Sandwich was good. Salad had way too many lettuce ribs and a mix of white & dark meat. Suggest Smokey nixes the ribs and uses only white meat. I left over a third of the salad. It came with a thimble full of ranch dressing. What was I... More

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
