“NOISE levels immeasurable!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

Brace yoruself for long waits, portions that are "chincey" and you literally have to scream for your dining partner across the table to even come close to hearing you. Is it a oversized sports bar with too many TV's or simply arestaurant with an identity crisis. Huge menus stuffed with one mediocre choice after another and staff that are clearly anxious to turn your table fast. Not even close to the "comfort zone"

“Average B.B.Q. chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

I visited Smokey Bones on
Easter Sunday, 2012 It was slow at 5.00P.M. I sat at the bar and was served by Mercedes. She was very friendly . I ordered a combination plate with a small rack of ribs and 1/4 chicken. I wasn't given a choice of white or dark meat, and received a small wing and breast. The ribs were very good, and the chicken was not smoked, probably just roasted and slathered with B.B.Q. sauce at the last minute. Very dry. The macaroni and cheese side dish was straight out of a can and terrible! The steamed broccoli however, was perfectly steamed and very flavorful. A Dewar's scotch was $7.25, a bit high for a place like this. The staff was young, and were very "playful" on the sidelines. Perhaps the manager should be more attentive of his staff! Overall, it was a mediocre experience and I probably won't visit again.
