Very good service, quick to respond, many beers on tap mix well with the full menu. If I may, try the chicken chop salad with a two hearted IPA from Bells Brewery. The ribs are great too. They also offer a 10% discount if you're staying at one of the many local hotels.

Ice Cold Beer and falling-off-the-bone ribs - all without the hassle of cooking it myself. Great place to gather - mingle with friends and share several plates of BBQ varieties. I do NOT like the automated ordering & paying from the table, though - Why even have waitresses, might as well go to the kitchen and pick the food up... More

We have not been here in awhile. Always a good time! Upbeat atmosphere! The Cuban sandwich is fair, though. The mac & cheese side dish (which is an upgrade) is good. They got rid of the smoked turkey, which was a disappointment.

I love to go to Smokey Bones for ribs. They are falling off the bone tender and taste great! I love stopping in for a beer and robs.

The ribs are great. A favorite spot. Highly recommend. A drive from the airport and downtown but worth the effort. We generally order the full rack so we have some to take home.

This restaurant is open until 1:00 a.m.!! We were traveling and arrived at our hotel later than expected. Found this restaurant on "trusty" Trip Advisor! Had a delicious house made Berry Sangria and great Baby Back Ribs, served by a very cheerful young lady. We were able to relax and enjoy our dinner because the staff wasn't busy trying to... More

My coworkers and I travel to Springfield regularly and this place is a spot we hit at least once each visit. The wings are great, the spinach and steak salad is fantastic and the beer selection is always on point. The bar staff is super friendly and knowledgable about the selection and make great suggestions based on your taste. On... More

We met family members here for a wonderful meal. The atmosphere was bright and we could hear each other so not too loud. Ribs , appetizers , and the whole meal was worth the price. Must have the donuts for dessert because they are out of this world great. I'll be going back.

Very popular place for locals. Highly recommend if you're here for the night. Food was very good we had the pulled pork and 1/3 rack of ribs. Staff was very friendly and service was good. I will be back when we are back in town.

A group of 14 of us walked to Smokey Bones for an evening get together. The staff worked with us to get us all seated together and the wait staff did a very good job keeping up with us. Food was very good.
