We return to Smoke 'n Bones every summer with our grown kids and grandkids. Everyone finds something on the menu that they like and we have never had a bad experience with either the quality of the food or the friendly service.

You know, the worst thing about TripAdvisor, in my opinion, is that honesty and hospitality sometimes do not mix. This is one of those times. Fortunately I am able to respond to the nasty reviews certain people feel so empowered to post. I spoke to...More
