It has been several years since I tried Smokey Bones so I thought I would return. It was as good as I remember. My server was Gracie and she was attentive without being obnoxious and my fish was grilled to perfection.

The food was great and when the dinner rush came in after us, the whole staff worked great together to make sure we were taken care of even when our server had a big load. Amanda was great and super friendly.

Wanting not a large meal, I decided with help from the waiter to try the smoked wings. He says they enter them in local completions and they win. After eating 8 of these, I have to try on my smoker. They use a dry rub,...More

Average. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was not busy. The service was slow and the food mediocre. Our server seemed a little off, not sure if it was his personality or what but he was a weird dude.

I. Enjoy eating at smokey bones . The food is always great . But best of all the bartender Cheyenne pays attention to her customers needs and remembers somehow for the next visit exactly how you like your order.
