“Repeat visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Stopped here again during our "Snowbird" treck north. We're fond of the Smokey Bones chain and we were not disappointed this visit. Same friendly and attentive service, cold beer and good and abundant food at fair prices.

Easy access from I-81 and numerous hotels. Stop in and enjoy.

“Where was everybody?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

Saint Patrick's Day. A client and I, in town for business decided on Smokey Bones for St. Paddy Day dinner. We drove past other places with nearly full lots. Smokey Bones had just a few cars. Hmmm.
We were seated quickly. A 22oz Guinness did not disappoint. The fried pickle and Memphis wings were really good.
My BLT burger looked good but was bland. My client had a salad that was ok. With two sodas, the tab topped $60 for two. Kinda steep, don't you think? I believe my money can be better spent elsewhere.

“Good BBQ for NEPA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

I have been here with my family twice. After the first visit I asked if they wanted to go a few weeks later and an actual cheer came from the back if the minivan. The pulled pork and brisket were pretty good considering we are in the northeast! The four sauces they give you at ever table makes up for any thing you may miss from your favorite southern BBQ joint. The service was good to fair and the prices are a little higher than other chains.
