The food was very good and exceeded our expectations. We had the pulled pork plate and the Cuban sandwich. The food was amazing. The pork very tender and flavorful. My son loved every bite! The problem we had was the volume. The TVs were very loud throughout and made us struggle with conversation. The restaurant was also extremely loud in... More

This the first restaurant I've been to that features a tablet on the table capable of doing everything but delivering the food. You can call a waiter, reorder a drink and even slide your credit card and receive a receipt. Granted, the waiters still took orders and assisted. And frankly, people who called for service with the tablet didn't seem... More

Missed Smokey Bones last year on our annual trip to Florida due closure brought about by their fire. Great to see them back in business again...bar service not yet up to their old standard but I'm sure will get there..Food was great as usual..looking forward stopping by every time I'm passing through.

Made a dinner pit stop on way home to Tennessee and saw Smokey Bones as a different place to eat. Very fresh and modern open eating area. Food was good and service was quick. Had plenty of beers on tap to pick from. I give them 4 stars because they are pricey for a casual grill restaurant. The 10 oz... More

Visited with a party of 21. Called 2 hours in advance but no reservations taken and no advance accommodations available. Took about an hour to get seated,not a surprise with such a large group. Took drink and appetizer order but no table settings or napkins even when first round arrived. Went to the bathroom to get paper towels after eating... More

We went Monday evening, December 26. It's the holidays, so it was crowded. We sat at the bar for 30 minutes waiting to be seated, it took a bartender 20 minutes to ask if wanted to order anything while we waited to be seated. Once seated, our server promptly took our order for nachos as an appetizer. It took 45... More

Food here is good, service is reasonably quick. It's a little bit loud, but that might be a plus if you had children, because you don't have to worry about them being "noisy. Our server seemed a bit preoccupied, she brought out the wrong drinks, and our orders were not exactly the way we placed them, so it was a... More

Went the first weekend after it reopened. The new building is big and spacious. The interior is really one big room. The bar takes up most of the space on the right, with booths and tables on the left. Very loud; feel like you're at a party rather than just dining with your party. We sat next to the kitchen,...

I must say smokey bones is exceptional on not only their service but on their food quality also. The manager rocks checked order personally before it left carryout. Thank you for always having great service and the best food in bowling green.

new remodeled, prices higher than they were before, music playing very loud. nothing like it used to be. The smoked wings used to be our favorite now the have gone up drastically in prices also. I guess to pay for the new building. probably won't go back often.
