Smoque N Bones
Our commitment to authenticity is showcased in every aspect of the restaurant, starting with our classic, Southern BBQ style menu. Everything that leaves our kitchen is made from scratch with love. Our Southern Pride smoker was tailor-made for our intimate dining room in order to provide a distinctive and genuine flavor, aroma, color, & texture in all of our meats. Even the tables have a story – topped with reclaimed wood from an old house on Palmerston and lit with bunker and prison lights from WWII.
The food was good and our server, Tasha was excellent. The only item where this resto falls down is the seating arrangements - totally uncomfortable and inconvenient.
You have only hightop tables with counter stools - there are no backs on the chairs, which is not good for folks who have back issues. Also, because the table tops are so small and the food comes on platters, requiring the full table top, there is no place for a woman to put a handbag, other than way down on the floor under the table - because there is no chair back, you cannot hang a should bag over your chair, and there also are no hand bag hooks under the table top so that you could hang your handbag within ready reach, should you need easy access to it. Also, I do not like to put a good leather handbag on the floor.
So chair backs and hand bag hooks would go a long way to improving the seating environment. Right now, the ambiance is a bit too rustic.
Heard and read great things. I am a food writer from the US (in for a friends birthday). I choose NOT to write about this venue for newspaper publication because I had not been able to visit more than once.
Yet this was my experience. We were seated upstairs. The server was pleasant. Took our order and never checked back in. Told no chicken when we ordered (while waiting to be seated we spoke with 2 tables telling us how good the chicken was). Our food took 45 minutes (platter for 2). Our food was cold when arrived, we waited to get the servers attention, he was nowhere to be found, so we ate it as we were VERY hungry by then. The food overall was a 7 (the corn was fantastic!)
There was a big table seated across from us and they received a platter of chicken. I guess the kitchen was ill-prepped. And the server inexperienced with communication.
Seating upstairs was peculiar. Like sitting on a footstool.
The food is delicious and there is more than enough. Can’t wait to go back.
Terrific food quality and ambiance!
Great experience. The food, the music, and beers are a perfect combination to enjoy a very nice and relaxed evening with friends and family. The ribs are amazing ! I definitely recommend this place.
Tried the Sample Platter option with ribs, brisket, peppercorn beef, mac & cheese, sweet potato fries and corn bread. The food was great, the portions were excellent and the service was fast. Definitely will plan on coming back another day!
Food is always soooo good and amazing service and atmosphere
Amazing food and great service. You don’t have to wait a long time before the food is served and every time the food is amazing! My husband and I love this place
A great quality of food and the open kitchen at a bar type situation made food safety, and quality no question - great and wonderful concept.
Prompt food service, but sadly our proximity to the door made the shoestring fries get colder (as well as our bodies) quicker and a risk to order, and the description of the garnishes for the spicy Caesar leave you disappointed and wanting more than a portion of a strip of candies bacon and one pickled bean.
The food was good in flavour and excellent in cook; the riblets being our favourite.
Music a bit too loud to be able to hold a conversation, which makes a date night or any dinner gathering difficult.
Everything was great...from the food, to the drinks to the servers. Definitely not disappointed at all and well worth a visit when in Toronto
Amazing BBQ food and friendly service. Would definitely come back!
There is literally nothing on the menu that disappoints at Smoque N Bones. Been there 5 times, always consistent quality, taste and service. Some will comment on the price and while agree BBQ can be on the pricey side, as with most things, you get what you pay for. SNB hits it out of the park for me.
The food was delicious, but we waited a very long time for our food. However, they acknowledged that and apologized and got us a free drink. Would still recommend.
Incredible as usual
My boyfriend and I had a reservation for Valentine's Day dinner. We ordered a Sampler for Two and were not disappointed. The meats were absolutely divine. This was the first time we tried Brussel sprouts here and they were cooked to perfection, very delicious. Would recommend Smoque N Bones for any celebration dinner.
Loved that place! Food was delicious, waiters and cooks were friendly and the ambiance was friendly as well no need to suit up to enjoy good food! Wait was a little long but that’s to be expected especially in Valentine’s Day. I’d recommend that for anyone who loves southern comfort food: ribs, sausage, beef cornbread beans you name it everything is on the menu!!
took clients to dinner. Great spot even in a snow storm.
Very dark (hard to see the menu) and loud customers - could use more comfortable seating. Otherwise 5/5
The food is amazing! The meats were very tasty, the sides as well. We got the churros for dessert which was absolutely mouthwatering. Our waitress was great as well. Overall an amazing experience , will definitely return soon!
Food was great. Only complaint is that the open table app gave us an option for “standard seating” (instead of high-top). The restaurant only has high-top and bar seating available.
Overall, I had a good experience and would recommend this restaurant to a friend.
I enjoyed the ambiance and the music was great but the food and service could have been better.
Amazing food!!! I love the place
We were hosting newcomers-friends. It was their first dinner in Toronto. I'm absolutely happy we've chosen this place. It turns out like a great experience of good ambience with a local food&beer and such friendly staff. Thanks guys!
This place was awesome. Ashley are server was great and helped us make some decisions about the share platter. There was more than enough food for 2 people and we were able to take some home. They had a great selection of southern cocktails and overall it was a great experience.
We had an amazing dinner at Smoque N Bones - staff was friendly, the quality of the food (we had chicken wings, beef brisket, mac and cheese, brussels sprouts) was excellent. Highly recommended!
Mr Paris crushed it! ate at the bar upstairs and we enjoyed it. Brisket and pulled pork were good. Shoe string fries a must!
Amazing food and service! Flavour and variety is outstanding
The food here is absolutely incredible. If you're looking for good bbq, you need to come here!
Food was not good! Everyone in our party didn’t like their food. Ribs, brisket and fried chicken all poor. Very disappointing.
Had a great time on New Years Eve! Great service, great food. Zero complaints! :) I look forward to visiting again in the future again and again!
Great food, drinks and service! Overall amazing atmosphere highly recommended for bbq place.
The food is outstanding. Some of the best BBQ I’ve had and I’ve been to Austin. The sides were amazing too. The coleslaw is a must try. We will be back!
Family style dining with 11 people was amazing! Got to try all different foods and appetizers. All good was outstanding and had very quick service. Wonderful chiro dessert as well even when we couldn’t eat anymore. Took home so much food! Would highly recommend this place!
This was a proper smoky BBQ joint. Looks and smells wonderful. The meat was very good. The brisket was excellent.
First time there...the food was absolutely amazing. Great bbq place and good sized portions on everything. A definite repeat.
As always...great food, great service, great vibe, great time!
Friendly Service, Quick turnaround, Great Food! Loved the side dishes as much as the main event BBQ items.
Amazing each time we dine here. Their ribs, pulled pork and Brussels sprouts are out are excellent. Would highly recommend this place- owner is behind the bar in the kitchen cooking and all staff in the kitchen take pride in what they are serving their guests.
