After a tiring day of driving and shopping had dinner at Smokey Bones. Food was good, the ribs were falling off the bones. It was above average would eat there again. Surprising though for a Friday night it was less than a quarter full. Not sure what the locals think of the place!

We had lunch yesterday, after running errands in the Mills. Tired of the same places, we headed to Smokey Bones. The place is big, lot of tv screens, the service is great, I can tell you that, but the food is average. The ribs were great and we got too early so the brisket was not ready yet. This force...

Our meals were served temperature appropriate and looked and tasted great. There seemed to be plenty of waitstaff and our waitress was friendly, pleasant and attentive. Would definitely return.

Went here for dinner last night and got the buffalo chicken dip for an app..it wasn't what I expected and was more like cut up chicken fingers in a cheesy dip..but it was still really good. The ribs were delicious and the service was good. Will definitely be back. :)

Beef Brisket and Baby Back Ribs were good, but not great. As I am used to a more southern vinegar based sauce, the sweetness of this barbecue was almost too much. Service was excellent. Fried pickles were very tasty. Standard chain restaurants. No surprises.

My wife and I went here for a couple of beers and dinner. I had the pulled pork and smoked sausage combo and she had the BBQ chicken. Her dinner and the pulled pork were okay, but the sausage made me physically ill. The sausage was encased in a collagen casing that should have been removed because it was very... More

Came here twice during the two week stay. The food was a little pricey but it was very good. They have a good beer selection on tap. Your best choice is the get a pitcher of beer $7.95 for most.

Portions smaller and not as tasty. Some of the staff seemed aloof and apathic. Meal was ok but not great.

I had a great salad with chicken and some wine. The greens were fresh and crisp. The service was friendly and quick.

Met friends for lunch at Smokey Bones in Tarentum. Enjoyed a delicious lunch with great service. Several of us ordered the Cuban sandwich with pulled pork and a side. We all thought the Cuban was delicious. Our server provided very good service. She continually refilled our drinks without asking and checked to see if we needed anything. She also worked... More
