Friendly service and fresh food after 10. Definitely exceeded expectations. Had the sense that there were many regulars present who knew each other. Serves burgers, appetizers, BBQ. Atmosphere better for adults than kids. A bit pricey, but wait staff helped us order more effectively and...More

It was just “ok”. Server Sara was great. We shared Salmon diner. It was very good. I ordered Bloody Mary. It was good but the celery stick looked pathetic. Would not go again. This is what I got straight from glass.

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.

We like Smokey Bones for late-night food for adults, and it seems a step up from the nearby Buffalo Wild Winds (loud with inconsistent service) and IHOP (more "sterile" atmosphere). This visit was well less than perfect: not very attentive service (ex. no refill provided...More

While the barbecue is passable as smoked meat it won't win any competitions in Kansas City, or Memphis. When we went the portions were pretty small which was disappointing. I had the half chicken dish, and my wife had the Sandwich. I'd venture to say...More

typical chain restaurant with bbq goods and cold beer. We set at the bar stool, and ordered multiple bbq dishes and cold beer. service was good, and price was reasonable, but nothing special, just comfortable place to hang out.
