Was craving broccoli cheese soup for lunch. Our waitress informed us that it is no longer served (mind you the menu hasn't been changed). Ordered a burger, which was really good. Service was great and speedy. Not too busy midweek.

I was in the area and decided to treat myself to dinner here. I'd heard really good things about this place and didn't have time to stop during my last visit so I made it a priority this time. I'd never been here before and I tell you they lived up to the rave reviews. From entrance to exit they... More

Came in just before 1:00 was seated right away. Server came took our drink orders and an appetizer order. When he returned with the drinks he took our order....That is where both my friend and I came to the conclusion that our waiter "Joush" was not meant to be in the service business. When asked a question about the menu... More

Planned on going to the Claddagh but since it was St Patrick's day they were crazy busy and had a live band that was deafening. Decided to try Smokey Bones and found another great restaurant with attentive courteous staff and the food was exceptional! Lists of choices and great tasting and inexpensive! Great for couples or families!

We went in as a bunch to grab drinks before a movie and had such a great time. The staff is great and fun. And management is always helping them out. It was great to see and hear them thanking everyone for the great work . We order some local beers, wish there was more to choose from, but still... More

I was staying at the Courtyard for business and I decided that I wanted a late night bite and the front desk told me to try Smokey Bones and to get their smoked wings. I decided to sit at the bar since it was late at night (11pm). I was taken care of by Kelly, who was fantastic and had... More

The food here is amazing, they really nailed true BBQ but what makes us a true returning customer is the service we received not only the first time we were there but also the second. We were super lucky to get the same server both times and I have to say that JILLIAN is amazing at what she does. She... More

The service and atmosphere is great and the menu has a lot of variety! I ordered the $20.00 ribs plate and was a little disappointed at the size of the ribs. One end was barely two inches long and hardly any meat there. My wife's BBQ sandwich selection looked great though.
