The location is easy to get to, the atmosphere was nice and the service was great. About the food.. I came here for Happy Hour for the $5 well drinks which were decent. I had the bacon building blocks and these looked over done but were tender and delicious. The house curing and double hickory smoked bacon really bought out... More

I've been to this place before.... I had hoped this time would be better but not..... Sorry but the happy hour isn't worth it..... Half price wine Wednesday isn't really what they claim..... Only certain bottles are half off. We went for a party.... Had to leave a deposit of 300 dollars to reserve a table..... One girl in the... More

Visited Boneyard Bistro on 09/17/16 with a coworker. We were arrived when they opened and the hostess was kind and seated us immediately. Our server was Danny and he was nice and allowed us time to peruse the menu. I ordered plantains, baby back ribs, and beef brisket with collard greens and fried mac and cheese and iced tea. My...

That's because you can't find any parking during regular hours. Tried the fried macaroni and cheese, grilled brisket and cheese sandwich and hamburger. Great drink selection and some great wines. Happening place after a show. Loud and lively. Service just OK.

Came with family members and had a fun and delicious meal. Their sweet potato fries were great as was their burgers.

If you enjoy delicious BBQ meats, come here. Every visit reminds me why I always come back. You can't pick something off their menu and not like it. (vegans need not apply) Good portion size, excellent sides (the dill cole slaw is my favorite), downhome decadent desserts and a drink menu that is pretty darn expansive with whiskeys, beers, wines..something...

We went for a casual meal, so we decided to try the BBQ here. I must admit that when we looked at the menu, we were taken aback by the prices. Fortunately, the food was good.

This place is just average. Good location, parking not easy but there is valet. I ate here once before and complained about the wait and I hardly ever complain. That time I called the manager over and complained. He wasn't a bit helpful. I thought then I might never come back, but I did. The barbeque is just average. The... More
