Baby back ribs were too hard to eat. The side order of corn had a child size amount of corn. I was charged o.99¢ for potato log which was my 2nd side order, even though the 1/3 baby back plate comes with 2side orders. I called the restaurant, but no answer. I will be returning this plate tomorrow.

My husband and I finally had a night out without the kids so we decided to go to dinner. We picked Smokey's. It was a Saturday night and they were packed. We were pleasantly surprised to be seated within 5 minutes of being there. We hadn't eaten all day and were ready to eat. Our server Rachel B.(they apparently have 2 Rachels lol) was awesome! We started with some drinks and fried pickles for an app. The pickles were delicious. I didn't care for my drink, which was my bad I didn't see that there was whiskey in it and I HATE whiskey with a deep burning passion lol Our server noticed and asked if I would like something else. I felt bad but she said it was no problem at all. Next thing I knew the manager (Sarah) came over and asked what types of drinks I liked and said she'd mix up something special for me. Absolutely delicious! We got our food in record time and everything was hot. My husband got an entree with a variety of different BBQ and I got the baby back ribs. Our server and the manager came over often to check on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Wonderful experience. Would definitely go back again.

We were in Erie for the weekend and thought we would stop for an early dinner at Smokey Bones Millcreek Mall location. It was around 3:00 pm. The hostess was also the waitress and the manager was being the bartender. We ordered the Bone-Fire for two and it came out cold so we sent it back. We then ordered the mixed berry cheesecake off the menu as it sounded delicious. The menu says cheesecake with strawberry sauce, mixed berries and whipped cream. The picture below show what we got. One freaking strawberry on the cheesecake. Was very disappointed with the food.

Perfect experience. This was a rack of baby back ribs. Far exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be back to try other menu items.

Sat at the bar and was waited on by Heather. we had the 1/2 chicken meal and it was awesome. She was running around attending to multiple tables. We were checked on frequently and always given refills..The manager also stopped by and checked on us, she was very nice.

My family has been turned away TWICE during business hours at this location. A few weeks ago, we were turned away at 8 PM because they were closing (their business hours say that they are open until 10). Then last night, I called them at 7:45 to ask when they were closing, and they said 9 PM. My family drove 30 minutes to eat here, arrived at 8:20 and then were turned away again because they had a “rowdy” customer, but he had already left, so they were closing early again. Super disappointed because the food was pretty good the one time I ate here, but the hours are so unreliable and they close whenever they feel like it, not when the business hours on google say that they close. Definitely wouldn’t drive any distance to eat here, you may or may not be turned away regardless of what time it is.

It was a pretty chill atmosphere, and clean. The food smelled phenomenal and they were playin some good music on the radio. We sat at the bar, with only a cpl people at either end...Only had a cpl drinks but the service was great and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely come back! Thank you!

Group of 8 stopped in for dinner. Our waitress handled our crazy group like a champ. Food was absolutely delicious with huge portions. Order meat that was plain so we could try the variety of sauces. And don't forget the donuts for dessert!!


I can forgive a couple of missteps, maybe even a few. But this is a case of a franchise expanding without maintaining quality.Out of brisket? Happens to the best of restaurants. Realized too late I was charged for it, though.Pulled pork doesn't even have a hint of smoke or bark? Okay, I guess. Maybe the brisket would have been better.Sauce tastes sour without any classic bbq undertones except brown sugar? Guess I'll skip it but so much for saving the pork that way.Gluten free meal with garlic bread on top? Seems like a liability but at least they fixed it after ten minutes.Burger too well done? It happens.Kids meal assumed to be without fries? That much got fixed for free.Strawberry shortcake with the texture of a wet sponge? Maybe it wasn't very fresh today.Atmosphere of fog machine to pretend the place has a smokey haze? Ridiculous, but doesn't hurt me.I still see the appeal for cheap family fair, but perhaps my BBQ tastes are too high. At least the staff is friendly!

Our meal was amazing! We will definitely be back again. Our server, Heather, was very patient with our two kids and accommodated all of their special requests. She was fun, courteous, and took care of us! We were lucky to have her wait on us tonight! The donuts are incredible. Don’t leave without ordering them!

We tried the cornbread appetizer and the bread is decent, but add the honey pecan butter?? ? 10/10 amazing! We ordered the bone fire for 2 and it was okay, nothing special we thought we needed to go back for but we’re glad we tried it.


Was looking forward to eating here since my husband told me it was a good place to eat. He hadn't been to one in 6+ years but remembered it was good. I ordered the pulled pork platter and it came out COLD. I expect hot fresh food at a restaurant. Please tell my why all the food at the table was cold? 4 people, 4 entrees, all cold. The waitress took the pork back and heated it up in the microwave. It wasn't good at all. My moms salmon salad was unappealing and she was disappointed with her meal. She wanted her salmon overcooked (what can I say she likes it that way lol), that didnt happen. They definitely do not cook to order. Just gross altogether. The whole time I kept thinking "I wish we would have went to Texas roadhouse". My beer even tasted funny, clean the lines out!! Our waitress was nice so it's nothing against her. The only decent thing we had were the donuts but that is not enough to bring us back! Beware mine and my husband's stomach were upset for hours after eating here.
