We had not been here in a while so we de used to stop and see if it was still a good place for BBQ. The brisket and pulled pork are delish. The BBQ beans are great. I had a baked potato and the hubby had the coleslaw. Both were excellent. They have a great selection of brews and ciders... More

The hubs and I were on a late-night so starving! We ordered a combo grill that came direct to our table on a table top grill smoking to high heavens, but man it was amazing! Even though we ordered for two there was enough for four meals so took yummy leftovers for lunch the next day.

I had the 1/2 pound smokehouse burger with fries and it was cooked to perfection, we could not have found any thing to complain about... More

Went for dinner while traveling to the Clearwater area. It was ok but I've had better BBQ. This was conveniently located close to my hotel. I had the brisket, pulled pork, and the chicken breast combo. The chicken breast was dryer than I would've liked and the brisket was greasy. The pulled pork was ok. I like their spicy BBQ... More

Smokey Bones has excellent service, excellent dining area (tables or booths), and excellent ribs I tried the baby backs, and the St Louis style rib combo. I really loved the St Louis style, but both were very, very good!

I dined with my daughter and we both had delicious meals. Her BBQ chicken was outstanding and my pulled pork was delicious. The only downside to our experience is that the computer screen on our table was not explained to us. With a fussy young daughter, I allowed her to play with it while waiting for our food. She inadvertently... More

Prompt & funny, he explained menu details & we tried a new dish called Hawaiian Ribeye. Oh my GOSH. As succulent as u can imagine, w/pineapple, ginger, soy & brown sugar glaze.... More

Have eaten here since they opened Love everything on the menu, but I'm partial to the ribs. Plenty of tender ribs. But then I also love the steak and the chicken. Hard to pick sometimes, and our service has always been good.

If you like ribs, chicken, brisket, etc., this is the place! Great sides include a delicious and unique fire roasted corn, garlic bread, garlic mashed potatoes, etc. Don't skip the tiny cinnamon doughnuts, YUMMY!

Worst experience ever. We called our order in early because of no reservations allowed and was told by three separate employees we could not eat there that we where allowed to. Had one girl throw her hands up and say I don't know while another guy said on three different occasions that he does not get paid enough to do... More
