We are always glad to find a Smokey Bones restaurant, as most of the ones in our area have closed. We have to travel almost 40 miles to eat at one. Love their skillet cornbread with maple pecan butter! Butter is delicious. The entrees we've had are always good and the service is usually good.

One of our favorite local establishments. Good, friendly service. Decent food at a decent price. Specialty is BBQ, but a wide variety on the menu. Recommend the California Club, Smokehouse Chicken, or any burger. Nice bar area with high top tables or service at the lengthy bar. Plenty of TV's for viewing of numerous sporting events. Nice family seating area... More

Stopped by for lunch today since we were in the area. Husband enjoyed his pulled pork sandwich, but thought the side of slaw was bland. My soup was tasty and the skillet cornbread with honey butter was wonderful. Service was good. Prices were a little higher than expected.

The staff was amazing and the food was fresh and very good. I actually had a chance to meet Naomi one of the managers. She was polite and very humble. I absolutely will be back and I will bring my office team as well.

Stopped in for lunch and tried their pulled pick sandwich and coleslaw. Pretty good sandwich and if you add the coleslaw on top it's even better. The coleslaw by itself is nothing great. Their 4 sauces are not to bad but I likes the BBQ one the best. I like the sweeter sauces.
