Barbecue
Smokin Bones grew from a stall at Herbert Park Barbecue festival in 2014, we now serve you the very same authentic ribs, pulled pork and brisket as you had at The Big Grill.
At Smokin Bones we source the best possible local ingredients and don’t fuss with them too much.
Simply cooking with wood and time, “Low n’ Slow“.

I booked to eat here just over an hour before our table, but took the staff by surprise when I arrived. Although they did not know about my booking, I was seated ahead of other customers who arrived at the same time who had not booked - a bonus considering how bust town was that day! Incredibly busy day which greatly affected both the food and the service. I ordered the pork ribs, which I expected to be "fall off the bone" good, but instead were dry and tough. I had been to Smokin' Bones before they moved premises, and didn't enjoy their fries then - they were no better this time around, soggy and flavourless. The sauce on the ribs was overly sweet and tasted nothing like a barbeque sauce. My partner has the southern fried chicken burger which he described as the worst chicken burger he's ever had. He also agreed the fries were not good. He ordered mac 'n cheese as one of his sides, which tasted like it had come straight out of a packet! We ordered drinks with food but had to ask for them once again as they didn't arrive by the time our food came. The chefs obviously aren't given much free reign which is reflected in the food. The staff did their best but the restaurant isn't set up well for busy services, which reflects in the overall experience. I won't be coming here again.

Had the Skyscraper burger which incredible. Great place if you want a massive dirty burger. Nice beers, good service and a nice selection of food. Came here on national burger day so got two for one which was a great deal.
