New menu items launching across the menu; bone-in steak, “Big Beer,” and “Surf Your Turf”
Plantation, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Smokey Bones, the full-service ‘Masters of Meat’ brand, is taking flavor cues from the Bayou and adding a Cajun Mahi entrée and Louisiana Style BBQ Shrimp appetizer to the menu. The new items are available now, in time for Lent.
The Cajun Mahi features an 8-oz. wild-caught Mahi Mahi fillet, lightly blackened, and topped with four grilled shrimp served in a creole butter and choice of two regular sides for $26.99. The Louisiana Style BBQ Shrimp appetizer is a New Orleans-inspired barbecue shrimp with Cajun butter, topped with green onions, and served with garlic bread to mop up all the delicious sauce for $11.99.
Guests can also “build your own” mahi offering with grilled, blackened, pecan-crusted or seasoned with lemon pepper. In true Smokey Bones fashion, the restaurant also offers a turf your surf option for “build your own” by adding a 4-oz. filet mignon medallion to your mahi entrée, proving “If It’s Meat, We’ve Mastered It.”
“Meat is what we do, and fish and seafood are meat from the sea, so it’s only natural that we would extend our meat mastery to offer our guests a wider variety of seafood options,” said CEO James O’Reilly. “These new seasonal dishes are a great option for those who observe Lent, have a more fish-forward lifestyle, or just want to enjoy some delicious Cajun flavor.”
The new menu also brings back some guest favorites, including the 16-oz. bone-in NY Strip, featuring Allen Brothers(c) hand-cut USDA Prime beef with a choice of two regular sides for $44.99.
“And for those more carnivorous consumers, we are offering a perfectly seasoned and seared USDA Prime, 16 oz Bone-In NY Strip,” continued O’Reilly. “No other casual dining chains have a steak of this caliber on their menus, but we wanted to ensure our guests could satisfy all their protein cravings at Smokey Bones.”
Smokey Bones recently launched candy-coated cocktails for guests looking for a sweet cocktail to pair with their meal. The drinks are deliciously sweet and garnished with your choice of Swedish Fish®, Nerds®, STARBURST®, or Gummy Bears. The new cocktails were designed to evoke a sense of nostalgia and are only available until May 23.
A new beverage menu just launched featuring 12 unique cocktails, a full-page shot list, new beers, wines and mocktails, and an upcoming crowd-favorite – a 22 oz. Bud Light draft “Big Beer” special for only $3.99.
To end the dining visit on a sweet treat, an order of the new Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cheesecake, served with fresh strawberries and covered in dark chocolate with whipped cream, will hit the spot.

Its delicious barbeque and mouth-watering meats are available for dine-in and via online ordering for curbside pick-up or direct delivery from its restaurants.
