The service and atmosphere is great and the menu has a lot of variety! I ordered the $20.00 ribs plate and was a little disappointed at the size of the ribs. One end was barely two inches long and hardly any meat there. My wife's BBQ sandwich selection looked great though.

My family and I came in on Friday night and we had a wonderful experience. We were sat immediately and Kara took great care of us. She always kept our drinks full and the ribs were to die for. We will be back.

While we rarely stray from the barbecue part of the menu, the menu is varied. There are good salads and a great variety of sides. The corn bread with pecan butter is always a treat, and serves as a good dessert as well as an appetizer. The chocolate cake is marvelous. The staff is friendly and helpful. And their rewards...

This food at lunch was super. I had BBQ pork sandwich and baked potato. Super tasting. However I wanted BBQ tacos...out of soft taco shells. The waitress was good. The bathrooms were overflowing with garbage and pieces were missing from the wall edge.

This used to be a restaurant I enjoyed...no more. The last few visits have each been worse than the last and Wednesday night's was the last straw for me. There were six of us adults and I think only four finished their meal. Mine was supposed to be a Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. It was an unappetizing grey sodden... More

We dined late night after a show. There were patrons enjoying trivia night, which made the experience interesting. Our server was very good, personable and attentive

We dined at Smokey Bones a couple of years ago and it was excellent. We were attending an event at MSU and went back. It was a real disappointment. Our pork tenderloin was over cooked and lacked flavor, a small portion and a very poor value at $14.95. The restaurant uses an "at table" system to pay your check and... More
