Traditional Bar-B-Que restaurant with a variety of sauces to satisfy all regions. I love the St. Louis ribs and the baby bak ribs .... Great Flovor and very tender. Don't forget the cornbread!

Another return visit and another excellent meal. Service here is good and the food is great. This time we both had the Pulled Pork Platter, mine with Mashed Potato and Cole Slaw. Yummy, my mouth is watering while I'm writing this. I washed this down with a pint of Funky Budda Florida Ale which was really good. Yes, I did... More

Sunday was the 2nd time we have visited this restaurant in a month. We arrived at 2:15pm and sat at the bar. There were two other people seated at the bar and the restaurant was probably 25% occupied. We waited about 5-7 minutes to be acknowledged and another 5 minutes to get our beverages. The person behind the bar moved... More

We had a large group come to this restaurant. The Macaroni and cheese dish was just right. It was a perfect dish. The Waitress was very good about our orders and served us with a smile.

My wife and I visited Smokey Bones for the first time last night. We both had the 1/3 back rib combo with me having the brisket and my wife having the smoked wings. All were excellent and the service from Gio was friendly. Would definitely go back!

The best meal I've enjoyed during my stay in Fort Lauderdale. We ordered the ribs and quarter chicken ! The chicken wings were by far the best I've eaten. Our waiter Gio was super friendly and so funny. He certainly made our night enjoyable!!! A definite must if you have the opportunity 👍👍

Mediocre service good quality food and drinks. Good central location one of the few decent restaurants on University specially University North of 595. Would go back again but a second or third choice compared to other restaurants

We entertained a group of friends visiting from Albany and thought the kids would enjoy some barbecue. Having visited the chain's Boca Raton location we thought we'd experience the same good food and service. The parking lot was full and all the restaurants around seemed busy. However, when we entered the restaurant wasn't busy at all. The wait staff was... More

Intended to go to another restaurant nearby but because of the long wait time decided on Smokey Bones because there was no wait. We were seated immediately, however, our server took a long time to get to us. A bit surprising because our section was not full. Knowing that ribs should take a while to prepare, we gave our entire... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the food and service. I would have given this a 4.5 but I was pleased with my food. It's nice that there are so many barbecue sauces to choose from.
