Description: At Smokey Bones, we specialize in three things: good food, good drinks, and good times. We are a bar and fire grill, but not necessarily in that order. We are grill masters who respect the power of the open flame. We like simple, yet flavorful recipes and believe marinating is not to be taken lightly. We know medium-rare isn't the only way to cook a steak, but believe it should be. We believe pork should be slow smoked and pulled often. Slow, as in 11 hours over hickory logs every night, and often, as in every day at every restaurant. We know it's our bartenders who make our drinks great, not the liquor. Although the liquor doesn't hurt. We think beer should be ice cold and consumed regularly. We know our servers bring much more than food to the table. We are big fans of sports, loud music, and surprises. And we believe in laughing often, especially at ourselves

I was introduced to Smokey Bones last night by a friend. It was a late dinner. No waits and the service was above average. The food did not disappoint with very good wings and corn bread (must try's). The St Louis ribs were like they were made for competition. All and all a great experience.

Great atmosphere--reminds me of an out west lodge and everyone in the family LOVED the BBQ, sides, and drinks. A step or 2 above your local BBQ joint.

I have to agree with all the recent reviews. It is a so, so restaurant for everything. The food is fair to middlin'! We always loved the home made chips but the price went up for half the amount. The fries were so, so. the Cuban sandwich was mediocre at best. Hamburgers looked ok. The final bill was out of sight for what we had. I would skip this place as there are too many other good places to eat.

You'll like it if you go at the right time or have the right frame of mind. We walked in at opening on Sunday, so it was still fairly quiet. The restaurant ambiance is similar to a Wild Wings with the screens and large bar. It can get loud near the bar, but there are big booths and tables for families apart from the bar.

The ribs are okay, but the appetizers and sides were better than okay. Order the pretzel bones, and kettle chips. WOW. Slaw has a mustard base, so be sure you like mustard.

The best thing they have going is their service. Waitstaff is outstanding.

This restaurant is inside the sea world. Convenient to eat lunch if you are between shows. I have to say food is a bit expensive though... $10 hamburgers? Not really worth the price but you pay for the convenience.
