Food awesome and service okay. We were there to celebrate birthday...received coupon for free dessert and had a coupon for $10 on at least $25 purchase. Past years we allowed to use both coupons. We chose a dessert to go, and our server came back to let us know they couldn't take both coupons. We told her nevermind the dessert... More

This was the first time at Smokey Bones that the food hasn't been very good. I had a hamburger that looked great but basically had no taste. The meat was overcooked with no grilled flavor at all. I ordered it with a "lettuce bun" which was actually a pretty nice option. Our server was very nice and extremely attentive.

I had never been here before and her recommendation of the ribs was an excellent choice. my Friend and i thoroughly enjoyed our visit and next time i am in town i will surely be back.

Last visited three years ago and this visit remided me why I stayed away from Smokey Bones. A young waiter was our server and I use that term loosely. We began by ordering two coffees. So the coffees arrived ; MINUS spoons & sweeteners. I had to chase two other waiters for the items. Since people today have an attention... More

Great service. Average food.This is the McDonald's of the BBQ set. It will not wow you but generally will not disappoint. Beer and wine prices are excellent. Can't go wrong with the drinks and offerings although they had several on the list that were not available..

We ordered nachos with chicken and sliced chicken plate. The nachos had to be sent back because they were not prepared as ordered due to waitress not paying attention. The chicken was dry and even the good barbecue sauce could not rescue it. The baked beans were good. The second order of nachos were as ordered but the chicken was... More

Visited for the first time on a Wednesday evening for a large gathering from work. They had been notified in advance and we were assigned a novice server who was in way over her head. The manager was indifferent to the problems she was having (one of our party talked to him prior to leaving before her order was even... More
