Delicious - HOMEMADE BRUNSWICK STEW - Good anytime! WOW, I would like their recipe!
A hearty blend of smoked BBQ, sweet corn and tomatoes, slow cooked for hours.

POWER HOUR lunch is good for about ~$10
Choose any two Regular Sides and one of the following Favorites: Hand-Pulled Pork | Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast | Chicken Fingers | Chicken Wings | Sliced Smoked Turkey Breast | 1/4 BBQ Chicken | Smoked Wings | Slow-Smoked Spiced Sausage

THE CUBAN BBQ Sandwich is very good (I like pulled pork sandwiches!)!
Pulled pork smothered in Swiss cheese and topped with pickles, mayo and our Carolina Gold BBQ sauce. Grill-pressed and served steaming. Change it up with smoked turkey instead of pork.

The Host & Waitress were very friendly, professional and attentive!

this is a place that i call "safe to take new folks to and be assured that all will enjoy the visit. the menu is diverse enough to please most anyone but not the size of half the table.
the pulled port plate here is good. the the fish is good. the burgers are outstanding.
clean, orderly and fun is smokey bones.
oh and the bathrooms sparkle.

Went to the restaurant with a party of 14. Loved the food, loved the staff, loved the atmosphere! The manager on duty checked on us several times and our waiter Brandon was great!

We visited this restaurant on an early Sunday afternoon. Our waitress, Sarah was very friendly, professional and attentive. The food was very good. We ordered a cheeseburger, spinach dip with chips, and pulled pork, corn, apples and garlic bread.

We quit going about 2 years ago. The food was always a bit better than average but trying to pay was a problem. Ask for the check, wait. Then pay your server, there is no cashier, and wait some more.

My mother always ordered one of the salads with chicken. She learned to get a freshly cooked uncut chicken breast, because the cut up chicken was always old and dried out. As for the ribs, my favorite, County Grill is better.

Place was usually full at dinner time with mostly boomers and older people. They redecorated and changed the menu to attract a younger set, driving the older crowd away. Don't know why you would want to change your customer base when you are doing OK in a bad economy.

One dirty trick we fell for once, our server asked if we would like the pan cooked corn bread while we waited for our meal. When we got our check it was an extra cost item. Most BBQ places around here give you unlimited hush puppies or corn bread muffins with the meal, no extra cost.
