The food was good the ribs were pull apart good and I enjoyed the pulled pork. I got loaded fries and a... More

Stopped in for lunch before going to work. Sat at the bar since I was alone. Got waited on within a few minutes and placed my order shortly thereafter. Food was brought over by someone else other than bartender. Bartender never came back with silverware, napkins or condiments and my glass of tea had been empty for almost 10 minutes.... More

We brought in a group from work of about 15 for a Christmas luncheon, service was a little slow in getting started, but did cover everyone. Food was fabulous for everyone, but even though it was served in sections did take a while to get everyone fed, broken up like each group of 3 or 4 was a separate table.... More

Had prime rib & even rare it was dry and no flavor. Service was great- cheerful, attentive. Brisket was slightly over done but was good flavor.

We went on a quiet night and there were plenty of servers standing around & what seemed plenty of kitchen staff yet we had a long wait for the food. Wish I had timed it. The waiter came over to tell us that it was almost ready. My husband questioned why it should take so long on such an uncrowded... More

Service was par excellence from the moment we walked in to the restaurant. Smiling faces all around. Food was served relatively fast and again with a smile. The service person asked repeatedly if everything was okay and if we liked the food. We ordered the cheese fries, brisket tacos and Pulled pork BBQ Burger. All 3 dishes were very plentiful... More

I went to Smokey Bones last Friday with my boyfriend for dinner. The food was great, and the service was even better! Our server, Denise, periodically checked on us to see how things were going and if we needed anything. She kept our drinks full and our moods happy. She was very professional but with a sense of humor, sparking... More
