We really enjoy the smoked wings and were not disappointed tonight! We topped it off with Bones Brew and this was the best part of the meal, we tried two chicken meals that were okay but not memorable.

I don't like giving a bad revue but all I can say is the food was good. The service was poor, it was cold where we were sat and it didn't have much of an atmosphere. My wife did send her bake potato back because it was cold, but it was replaced quite quickly. So overall could not recommend, but... More

We love the place. We had 1 by us years ago but it closed. Now we have to drive almost 90 miles to get here. The food is better than even some of the BBQ I have had in Tennessee if you can believe it. My wife loves the pulled pork, so she got that with mashed potatoes and gravy... More

I was sitting at the bar having drinks with some of my friends, and I noticed a bartender had gotten off of work and sat at the bar to have a drink with what seemed to be a regular. This would normally not be an issue. In this case however, not only was she extremely rambunctious, but I went to... More

We tried this place for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. The BBQ ribs were tender and delicious. The prices were reasonable and the menu had a lot of options. The food was a little too salty but I think that's the nature of the cuisine. It's located right in the heart of the commercial district of Warwick.

We love dining at Smokey Bones! The food is delicious, and the staff, especially the bar staff, (where we normally eat), are fantastic! Roy, and the rest of the crew really make you feel welcomed into the establishment!

Went for quick dinner on a stormy night! We had smoked wings - garlic parm and buffalo. Loved them! I had 1/3 cut of dry rub St Louis rib and pulled pork and steamed broccoli ... Could NOT eat the pulled pork - tasteless, very disappointing. Ribs and broccoli were delish. Husband ordered the salmon dinner"what a joke" we had... More

This is about 40 minutes from my house, but worth the trip. We have been twice and each time the service was great, the food was great and the price was very reasonable. Wish we had one closer.
