My friend and I went there after seeing a concert. It was after 1am and there were a few people in the restaurant. We got fried pickles and I got a combo of chicken and pork tacos. All of these were very yummy. I would definitely go back. We thought about desert, but we're too full. My friend got the... More

Service was horrible, attempted to sit six big people in a booth and had stand there and wait forever while they took their time cleaning off an available table in the bar area. Waitress was not attentive only when called over to our table. Food was average, not good, nor great. Should've followed my gut feeling and went to Famous... More

I must admit disappointment here. Just walking in the joint the floors are so slippery from grease. Come on clean them up. The booth was gross, greasy and all of the condiment bottles were dirty/nasty. The service was pretty good, but the food was well below my expectations for a joint that specializes in BBQ. Since we were there for... More

A friend and I met for dinner at Smokey Bones since the menu is so varied. I had a delicious salad and she had ribs. Both were delicious. The service was good and the waitress was very attentive. No wait, which is unusual.

This place has very slow service. It has had that problem for quite a long time. I've been in here several times and I always think they forgot me. Haha.. And the beef is always cold. The food is good just not hot and very slow service.

We stopped to eat here while visiting in Louisville and was excited to see it as we live the one in Bristol. The service was ok, but the food was not very good. My husband got the nachos with chicken and he kept having to pick bones out of it. I wanted prime rib since it was on the BIG... More

I ordered Steak, Hubby ordered a burger. We were both very happy with our meals. He ordered Donuts to go which he said looked better than they were. Refreshing adult beverages. We will absolutely be back.

First time visiting Smokey Bones. Enjoyed the St Louis ribs. Family members ordered salad and burgers. Watched televisions showing college football games. Wish one was closer to my home!
