    Great vibe, excellent server - unfortunately the platter for 2 all of the BBQ was dry and overcooked... Maybe we came during a slow period but it was disappointing. Also the Oldfashoned cocktail wasn't very good, lacking flavor. Will definitely try again, hopefully they can get the food quality up.

    Went Sunday afternoon for a birthday lunch for a friends. Lovely location, very nice big patio for summer/spring. the food was delicious, shared platter for 2 between 3 people and it was more than enough food. some of the best ribs I've ever had. I'm not big on BBQ but I definitely has a good experience. the server was especially sweet and attentive.

    This eatery has become one of my favourite spots, having visited a of couple times. The cuisine bursts with flavor, especially the baby back ribs, tater tots, wings, and Mac and cheese, all of which were exceptionally tasty. The service was also outstanding, with the server being both patient and amiable.

    The food is good, the staff is awful. We had a reservation for 6 people and the restaurant sat us at a table for 2. After they argued with us they then realized it was an issue on their end and did nothing to accommodate the issue. We were sat separate all over the restaurant. The service was god awful. We got our food before we even got a glass of water.

    The group of 12 that we went with had a great time. The food and drinks were good but a bit on the pricey side. Service was great, food tasted wonderful and the drinks were very well done. The only problem we ran into at the end was that although the group was told there was only 1 bill, there was confusion when it came to payment. Only 1 card could be used to pay the bill and therefore everything had to be split and calculated amongst all individuals. Otherwise we had a great time.

    Food was outstanding. The only item that was not nearly as flavourful as the rest was the brisket. The ribs, pulled pork, Brussels sprouts, corn and beans were mouthwatering perfection.

    Beautiful restaurant, it has an amazing ambiance, one of the nicest I’ve ever been in. The food was delicious and they have a fun drink menu I wish they had curtains to block off the cold when the front door opens. Lucky we were on the side away from the door but still, every time someone came in or left to the restaurant , we’d get a blast of cold air. It wasn’t even that cold out, I can’t imagine what it would be like if the temp was in the negatives.

    We ordered sampler for 2. Portion is very generous. Bbq ribs, chicken and beef brisket was so yummy. Bourbon passion fruit smash was refreshing. I would recommend to anyone and can’t wait for another one. Corn bread, Mac and cheese are another must have. And also coleslaw. All we had was good.

    The food was outstanding as usual Was surprised how when I moved the reservation time it had no time slots but when we showed up the place was almost empty. One thing I didn't appreciate was the server passed by the table to check on us and ask how the food was tasting almost 6 times :) I mean thank you for checking in, but I found it a bit excessive and at some point became distributive

    Came for Winterlicious, was happy with the value and the food! The portions were full size, so much so that I could not finish my side of Brussels sprouts (trust me, I wanted to, they were so delicious). Also with some restaurants, the quality seems diluted with Winterlicious; not so with SmoQue N' Bones, if I didn't know it was a Winterlicious special, I would have thought it was from their usual menu (I have been here before). The ribs were fall-off-the-bone delicious, the chicken poppers were breaded and seasoned perfectly, the Brussels sprouts were grilled and sauced to perfection, and the bread pudding provided the perfect finish to a very satisfying meal.

    My friends and I revisited the place but it was so disappointing. We arrived at 7 but our food came out at 8:30. We didn’t complain about the food coming out after an hour and a half because we saw many Uber drivers waiting outside, but the ribs were overcooked and little burnt which made them very hard like stone. It was very different from our experience last time with the same menu. The server was kind but did not really give us much explanation about the late excuses and dry/hard ribs. I personally would not risk by going again.
