    Smokey Bones used to be owned by the same company as Olive Garden and Red Lobster that was openly anti, but in 2007 they sold Smokey Bones to a different private company. I don't know what their policy is now.

    Someone reported just this week on this site about eating at the Smokey Bones in Dale City, VA. They had no problems.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I have OCd many times at that very location - never an issue or a second look.

    I OC'd at the Woodbridge location Friday evening. No problems.

    I'm not so sure they are not still owned by Darden... my friend had a Red Lobster gift card, and was able to use it at Smokey Bones, it was listed as one of the places it was good at on the back of the card.

    I've carried my Glock G22 to the Smokey Bones in Fredericksburg quite a few times without any problems.

    Not the same location obviously but just my 2 cents.

    Also possible that while the corporate owners may be anti, the local facility owners / district managers are following the rule of "Let's concentrate on getting customers here rather than turning away business".

    I have OC'd to the SB in Va Beach next to Pembroke Mall on 3 occasions. I have never had any issues. A couple:what:and a couple comments (Pro) from the hostess staff. Have even spoken with the VBPD LEO that is assigned to the place. Even still no problems.
