Oh my gosh! Love their smoked wings! I try to make sure with each visit to Fort Wayne to stop here for Smoked Wings! They are the bomb! Our daughter and friends ordered several different varieties of the Mac and Cheese, always a winner. Our waitress we have had before and she is the best( Kylie/Red).

What a nice evening we had with a couple of old friends. 45 minute wait for dinner. We had pulled pork, brisket and ribs. Oh and the most delicious corn bread one could ever had. Our entree was fried pickles.....DELICIOUS! No room for dessert cuz we were full to the max. We had nice sweet tea. We talked and ate...we... More

We love Smokey Bones. We try and find one wherever we go. Fort Wayne has a nice location right by the outdoor mall! The baby ribs were super tender!!! My kids liked the game things on the table. If you're in the area you should stop by!

We did not have to wait, however there was line for the 2 hours while we were at dinner. So, once we got our food ordered it seemed to take a long time to receive our order to the table! Food was good - medium to above average prices---$12.99 for a burger. Choose two meats with sides=$16.99! Service was good

My wife and I met my cousin and his wife here for lunch before a shopping trip. Full menu to please everybody. Our server Taylor was such a treat, we didn't have to ask for anything. She kept a good watch on our table. We enjoyed it very much.

We ordered dinner to go one night. I ordered the chicken salad. The salad was rotting and the avocado was black. The lettuce tasted like trash. Horrible. I would not recommend this location.

Local place to where we live. Each visit is a surprise as to the quality of the food and service. They usually cycle in and out of acceptability. We have been there twice in the last couple weeks and won't be going back for awhile. Tasteless food, marginal service and overall not worth it. Wait a few months and they... More

My wife and I love barbecue and steak houses. We come to Smokey Bones two to three times a year. It has very good food and atmosphere. You can build a steak burger or create your own rib combo platter. You won't go wrong with whatever you choose off the menu.

My family (4 adults and 2 small children) went on a Saturday night. We waited about 15 minutes for our table. It took approximately 1 hour for our food to arrive after we ordered it and they forgot my 3 year old's cheeseburger and fries. We were told it would take 5 minutes to remake, but it took 25 minutes!!... More
