Yes, we love the Ribs here. They are consistently meaty and fall off the bone. Of course, we also enjoy a steak on occasion. This is a fun place for the entire family.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We were not disappointed. Their smoked wings are amazing. We had the garlic parmesan and spicy garlic buffalo, good choice! We also had the"double trouble" rib dish. Two types of ribs...both delish! Lots of menu choices, Burgers look amazing. Easy location to find. Not busy on a Monday night, Waitress was... More

In town on business and needed somewhere to eat. Glad I chose here. Was seated immediately and almost as fast server was at my table. She was knowledgeable about the menu. Food came at a good pace. The ribs were great! There were definitely different levels of flavor. I could taste the smoke that was infused over a number of... More

Service is good, food good, atmosphere good except for very loud music which they refused to turn down. We were told on several occasions that they are not allowed to turn the music down. Casual conversation is very difficult. I guess it's time to find another meeting place.

You have to hand it to a chain that understands how to maintain the quality of food, drinks, and service, and this place stands heads above many of the rest. It's always a nice smile coming in, friendly service at the table and a nice thank you as you leave. The BBQ here is really good, especially the smoked turkey,... More

We were in Wilkes Barre over the weekend to visit my daughter's new apartment and celebrate her 25th birthday, Where did she want to go? Smokey Bones for ribs! We arrived on Saturday evening about 6:15 to a long line of hungry folks. We were told the wait would be about 40 minutes. OK so we sit at the bar... More

We have eaten at Smokey Bones restaurants in the past and thought they were pretty good. We ordered the beef brisket this time and were very disappointed. The meat was actually "mushy" with pieces of fat sliding off of the meat. We should have sent it back but, one is afraid to do that these days for fear of someone... More

This restaurant is one of the rare restaurants that open after 11:00PM. They open till 2:00 every night. The food quality is good and the service is good as well, but the service is not as fast as I was expecting. I think because I pay attention to small details but I think they should be faster and more attentive... More

Came after work with a large group. The drinks were good, as was the service. The appetizers were tasty - especially the wings. I ordered ribs for dinner, and was disappointed in these. Mine were so overcooked and dry that they were tough to chew and swallow without a gulp of water. I probably wouldn't order the ribs again, but... More
