The food overall was not bad, but the attention to detail was horrible. The burger that was ordered without onions was covered in onions. The kids pizza that said it was a cheese pizza had onions hiding under the cheese. The pulled pork had a sliver of bone in it and sliced my wife's gum. We brought it up to... More

Smokey Bones is right across the street from my office and we will occasionally stop in for team lunches. The food is great but you don't want to visit if you are short on time. They even asked us if we were in a hurry and we said "Kind of" but the food took forever to arrive anyway.

My son and I enjoy eating here. The selection of food is good and the prices aren't bad. Beware of a pretty lengthy wait on a Friday or Saturday night.

Food and service is good. Of all the chain restaurants, Smokey Bones is our go-to place, as food and service is consistently good.

One of the few places you can get dry rubbed ribs without any sauce on them. The sides with the meals are really good and fresh. The beer is cold. Service is good...even when the place is full.

Service is always good, food is delicious especially the skillet corn bread. They usually have some decent craft beer selections. We have always had an enjoyable evening.

Very busy spot, there was quite a wait but we decided to settle in for it. Well worth it as the ribs were on point and all of the other things we sampled were quite good. Service was prompt and attentive, none of the disappearing waiters that you tend to get on busy evenings. Good times were had by all!
