On weekend evenings this place packed. The food was good but they could have doubled the staff. People were getting upset and making things worse.

When we arrived we told the hostess we had 8 people. It seemed to be a real hard thing to figure out where to seat us. Finally figured it out they put us at booths next to each other then took the wall down. Oh and had to all stand there and watch the table be cleaned because it wasn't... More

I had seen these restaurants around but had never gone. I am on a business trip, so thought it would be a good opportunity to try it out. I sat at the bar since I was by myself. As I sat down, the server said "just to let you know we are out of chicken fingers, chicken breast, and something... More

We have been to quite a few smokey bones and have always had good experiences. This was not the case today. Very very slow service. Food came out about an hour after we were seated. Probably 35 minutes after ordering. Very small portions. I had 3 pieces of broccoli for my side. Will continue to go to our local but... More

A Straight take from my trip notes and I'm surprised I gave it a VG ? But on reflection, it was an enjoyable night/dinner on a wet & really quiet night , so that could explain the very attentive staff ? Either way the place doesn't require Gordon Ramsey just yet but it was an enjoyable welcome to Ohio with... More

I have to start off by saying that I've been to Austin a couple of times so I'm pretty picky when it comes to my brisket. We came here for lunch one day, it wasn't very busy so we were promptly seated. The waitress brought us drinks and took our orders. The food came out really quick. I had the... More

Tried out Smokey's BBQ and it was a good experience. From the minute that you walk in, you're greeted and shown to your table. The place is design nicely for flow, bar in the middle with plenty of TV viewing for events and the rest of the restaurant seating areas is around the bar to give good viewing form multiple... More

We went here for dinner and I ordered grill chicken on the salad. They brought deep fried chicken. My husband ordered grilled steak salad and it came without the steak.
