    Went there for brunch with a friend and we sat outside on the beautiful patio. The food was delicious minus the biscuits being a little bland. The drinks were delicious and very refreshing. The service was good until it came time to get the check when our waitress disappeared for quite awhile but outside of that Boneyard brunch was fantastic.

  • No Smoking Smoking Sections Outside
    DrDude
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Boneyard must attract smokers. If you eat outside, half the patio is for smoking and the non smoking section suffers from the drift of smoke and smell. A non smoking section next to a smoking section outdoors. What a concept. Totally ruined the meal even after moving as far away as we could. Restaurant is not responsive to non smokers and protect smokers. Won't be back.

    Had a great time with friends at a Saturday lunch on the patio. They have curtains on the roof that retract or come down over you, depending on how much sun you would/wouldn't like. Our meals were fabulous. I had the hot hamburger, and it was marvelous. Also had the cornbread, and, of course, devilled eggs. All were great. Ordered gin and tonics, and they were quite expensive. So is the wine list. Stick to non-alcoholic drinks at lunch if you want it to come in under $60 for lunch for two!

  • Crave does Sothern cuisine

    If you like Crave, you'll probably like this. Personally, I think Crave is like Applebee's for an upscale suburb like Edina. It will do when you need to eat, but it's never the first choice for food.

    Unlike most locations offering brunch, the Boneyard offers select plates of food for brunch. I've never been dining somewhere that offers brunch that is not a buffet. It was great. NO overeating. Loved the Jalapeno Maple Syrup -a must try.

    Is there anything better than encountering waitstaff and bartenders that are absolutely comprehensive in their knowledge of the drinks and food? Craig at the bar wins Bartender of the Year. Food was very good and the staff was very adept when making suggestions and explaining items. The bacon wrapped duck meatloaf is one of the best things I've eaten this year. We hit happy hour while waiting for friends, then had dinner with said friends, and when they left we hit the bar again for a nightcap.

    We went for Saturday brunch with a group of 4 adults plus a toddler. We chose this place because of the menus and the food was delicious. Service could have been more attentive (drink refills) but was overall very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is very laid back and the outdoor patio is very big. Would go back again.

    The ambience and decor are fantastic. Our server was awesome. The food fell flat, however. My mom and grandma make way better food at home. The waffles were cold, the ribs were dry, the greens were barely seasoned. Only the brisket was worth eating. Had a fun night out with my girls, but not the place to go if you're hungry.

    Had to pay $6 for parking. I realize you need to control unauthorized parkers, but the least you could do is give a credit back on the meal cost. Not enough menus for the table. Even got one for lunch when it was dinner time. I was told they ran out of menus yet it wasn't that busy. Is it poor management/poor planning? Inexperienced wait staff. Pleasant but immature in his service skills. Overall a rather discouraging first-time visit. Won't bother trying again.

    The food was good except the banana desserts were horrible. The banana pudding lacked flavor and the pie crust was rubbery and I only had four pieces of banana in the pie. The presentation of the banana foster pudding was beautiful until you looked at the bottom where the banana were grey. The server said was due to the bourbon. However, the peach cobbler was amazing. The chicken fried ribs were amazing as well as the fried green tomatoes.The rib platter was a good blue for the money and the ribs were huge as well as meaty. The chicken and waffles were good too. The duck meatloaf was good and the mashed potatoes were amazing. The best thing o. The menu were the chicken fried ribs with the sauce that accompanied it. We will go back soon!

    Food was an epic fail. The dishes we ordered had ingredients that weren't listed on the menu and some of my group were allergic to the added ingredients. Anther dish was too damn spicy and not listed as a spicy dish on the menu. The server was super friendly and nice but the food wasn't worth the price we paid for. There were 10 of us and one third of the group had the right food. The rest of us struggled with added ingredients and allergic reactions. We spoke to the manager and he apologized and assured us he will update the menu. I would never recommend this restuarant as i have had terrible terrible experience.

    My friend and I went there for a Thursday Happy Hour (4-7pm). She had been there a week after it had opened and said the service was terrible and food was just "ok. This trip she was happy to see the service had greatly improved. We had an attentive and engaged server. The food was better (limited options) but good drink options. Sitting in the patio for happy hour was nice although the atmosphere at Boneyard is a bit bare-bones for me. They have valet parking, but not sure why, as on this Thursday there were several spots in the lot open (we left at 8:50pm). Seems like it might be a good late weekend place for the bar crowd....what do I know as I am watching Netflix on Saturday nights. Peace-out....oh ya that was so 2000 too. Sorry.

    Pulled pork was good, Brussels sprouts over cooked, biscuits great. Overall the plate presentation needs to be rethought. Biscuits should be served to all in some type of basket with different spreads. Small cast iron pot for beans and other small servings would be better. There is a lot if potential for this restuarant. Music on patio needs to be better, lights, plants or ambiance needs to be better.

    I had the pleasure of dining at the Boneyard last Saturday morning for brunch. I had the fried chicken and waffles along with a side of the creamy grits! Everything was well prepared and flavorful. My daughter had the biscuit and gravy which was also excellent. All in all we had a great experience and enjoyed the energy of the establishment. They handled the Uptown Art Fair crowd with ease and even had their manager walking around to the different tables to check on their guests!

    The meat was exceptionally great, we tried the pulled pork, brisket and ribs. The sides were good although nothing extremely fantastic. The cole slaw is spicy which I like but my husband did not. Beans were fantastic. We say outside which was a great area except for the couple chain smoking right behind us. The tables are a little too close together for that. Went for dinner (6:30) and there were many open tables although they were getting full by the time we left. Would love to go back to try their brunch menu. The servers were great and everyone else eating seemed to really be enjoying themselves.

My husband had a watermelon cocktail which I thought was a little strong but he liked it. I had a watermelon salad which is HUGE, but delicious. I had also ordered an appetizer of fried mac and cheese bites. I did not need those. They also have a kids menu. We'll definitely return here.

    We had such a fabulous time at Boneyard. Our niece was in town from SF and we thought we'd try a new restaurant. So pleasantly surprised. The attention by the wait staff and special attention by the chef Jason. I'm so glad he recommended the bacon wrapped duck meatloaf.....wonderful. The green fried tomatoes were awesome as well as the special vegetarian dish Jason made up for my niece who's a vegetarian. Try the waffles and fried chicken great plus the greens were so good. Does remind of dishes I've had in the south. We will be back for sure. And eat outside so nic.

    Held a group happy hour there. 'Though not as many people showed up as had pledged (weather outside was delightful and distractions were aplenty), we were still seated and served and attended to with enthusiasm. The inside of the place is different than you might expect from the outside, but in a good way; the name and graffiti-like exterior led me to expect a bit more edge, and the interior and personality is a lot more comfortable. The food is delicious, the service very friendly and prompt. Everything's got a little kick to it, or a little twist. We ended up not trying the chicken and waffles, but that just gives another reason to return.
