We were there on Saturday - got there around 5 pm and only had to wait about 15 min to be seated. Our waitress came right away (Chelsea) and took our order. We waited about 40 min for our food. She served my dinner and then started to put my husband's down and said "wait - there seems to be... More

Never, ever, will we go there again. Hostess was rude. The only good thing I can say, my baked potato was ok. If you want frozen microwaved broccoli this is your place. The chicken was so dry even the sauce could not save it.

Food was pretty good. Ribs done well sides of broccoli and beans were good as well. The exterior/interior of this site was questionable. Parking lot pot holes and paper everywhere. Inside, I think they need a cleaner. Dust on the wall divider, carpet pretty old, BBQ sauce on the table flyer. I would have rated it VG I it was... More

Had dinner @ Smokey Bones with some business colleagues - and the food was fantastic. If you have NOT tried the bonfire 🔥 fire grill they have - YOU MUST... we had 4 in our party and the grill was a perfect idea for us to share - can't wait to go back next time we are in town!!!!

All three in our party ordered the pulled pork. Dinners came out very quick but the pork was dry and hard. Asked our server who brought over the manager, her response was just sorry that happens. And see offered to take my soft drink off the bill (Two were drinking water). No offer to remake food or other options just... More

After a tiring day of driving and shopping had dinner at Smokey Bones. Food was good, the ribs were falling off the bones. It was above average would eat there again. Surprising though for a Friday night it was less than a quarter full. Not sure what the locals think of the place!

We had lunch yesterday, after running errands in the Mills. Tired of the same places, we headed to Smokey Bones. The place is big, lot of tv screens, the service is great, I can tell you that, but the food is average. The ribs were great and we got too early so the brisket was not ready yet. This force...

Our meals were served temperature appropriate and looked and tasted great. There seemed to be plenty of waitstaff and our waitress was friendly, pleasant and attentive. Would definitely return.

Went here for dinner last night and got the buffalo chicken dip for an app..it wasn't what I expected and was more like cut up chicken fingers in a cheesy dip..but it was still really good. The ribs were delicious and the service was good. Will definitely be back. :)

Beef Brisket and Baby Back Ribs were good, but not great. As I am used to a more southern vinegar based sauce, the sweetness of this barbecue was almost too much. Service was excellent. Fried pickles were very tasty. Standard chain restaurants. No surprises.
