It has been seven years since Smokey Bones has opened a new restaurant, but the Orlando, Fla.-based company will end that streak next spring when it opens a location in Bay Shore.

On Wednesday, the company announced it would open its 66th Smokey Bones restaurant at the Westfield South Shore Mall next to the recently remodeled Macy’s.

The 8,100-square foot restaurant will feature its “new look” and will have a guest seating capacity of 365, feature two open-air patio areas, along with newly designed, modernized brand elements throughout the eatery.

“We have worked diligently over the past several months to re-emphasize the fun and edgy environment that makes Smokey Bones such a great dining destination,” said Chris Artinian, president & CEO of Smokey Bones.

“Our atmosphere, in conjunction with our focus on Service Excellence and Best in Food, has made Smokey Bones the ‘go-to’ in casual dining restaurants, as opposed to the ‘me-too’ within the heavily saturated category. This has enabled us to grow – both internally, through our culture, and externally, as we identify and seek out restaurant opportunities in a number of markets throughout the country,” he added.

Each Smokey Bones location offers a full-service bar and fire-grill restaurant. The company operates 65 locations in 17 states and employs nearly 4,000 people.

It is owned by an affiliate of Boca Raton, Fla.-based Sun Capital Partners, whose portfolio of restaurants also includes Boston Market, Friendly’s, Sweet Tomatoes, Fazoli’s, Bar Louie and other restaurant brands representing approximately 2,000 locations and more than $2.0 billion in sales.
