“Very Good Lunch; Tremendous Portions; Reasonably Priced”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Having lunch with friends, we had a delightful skillet cornbread followed by enormous 1/2 lb. Angus Burgers with a wide choice of trimmings. The food and service was superb, and the only negative was the loud background "music" that rivals Applebee's for the honor of being the most obnoxious.

“Good Value & Decent Food”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

I always go there armed with a coupon. They are in the paper or online every month. Spend $20.00 and get $10.00 off. A very nice deal. Service is average. Sometimes you get a decent wait person, sometimes you do not. Even sitting at the bar you feel ignored on some occasions. Food is a little better then average. Burgers and sandwiches are good. My friend had the Salmon once, average at best. Wings are decent but the ribs are pricey and you do not get a lot for that high price. They seem dry and not tender either. I have never had them come out hot, always lukewarm. Lots of TV's for viewing sports. Great variety of beers and drinks too. We usually go sit at the bar, have a couple of drinks and a burger and it ends up being reasonable with the coupon.

“Really good BBQ”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

A group of us stopped by Smokey Bones before our meeting last week, and we (most of us) enjoyed our meals in this chain-style BBQ. They have a large menu which features almost anything BBQ, right down to the fried pickles. I had a 3/4 rack of ribs that was slathered in a thick sauce, accompanied by side orders of baked beans and cole slaw. I had no problems whatsoever - it was all good. I especially recommend that you try their bakes beans; I could eat them for dessert!

One recommendation at this place: try a little dab of each of the BBQ sauces that they put on the table BEFORE you slather it over your food. One or two of them simply don't cut it, including one which made me pucker due to its sourness. But overall, I enjoyed this place, and the bar stocks some nice looking beers, if that is your thing. I do recommend this place.

“Pleasant for what we were looking for....”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Stopped for a quick overnight stay on a road trip, looking for some dinner and cocktails before we turned in at the Hampton Inn across the street (which by the way sucks for the price). Things went well at first, quickly got drinks, attentive service, food not bad. It's a chain, you won't be disappointed if your expectations are focused on a chain restaurant. The interesting thing was that we sat at the bar, which is fairly wide, not crazy wide but perhaps deeper than most. Every time the bartender gave us a drink or food they set it on the bar closest to them. May seem like a petty complaint, but after about the forth time of having to stand up and lean over to retrieve your drink you gotta wonder why they don't get a simple thing like putting your food/beverage within your reach. Our bartender was great then turned us over to a trainee and was nowhere to be found after that. When training, shadow your trainee, do not subject your patrons to her in training issues unless you plan on discounting our bill because now our service has gone down hill and the drinks aren't created the same as what you started us out with. The people who wait on you truly either make or break your dining experience, if we lived local we would go back and give it another try.

“Its a chain restaurant dont expect much.”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Ive been here several times over the years. The food is typical darden fare( think red lobster,olive garden etc) it was lot nicer in side wheb it was geared more to family dining and not the beer and football crowd. Food was decent and service was excellent.(esp for a chain restaurant).
