Very similar to TGI

For someone from the UK this is very similar to TGI. It has a nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly. The food is tasty and filling. The are fair compared to other restaurants in the city.

I've been in Esbjerg now for 3 days completely and going hungry each day. First night was bones - I ordered chicken breasts with their spareribs sauce. It was two overcooked hard dry pieces of chicken with a yucky dip like sauce. I just managed to get through the chicken somehow. I hope I never have to go to Bones... More

I ate in Bones with three colleagues after a day out in Esbjerg. It was recommended to us by one of these guys as he is a vegi and he had eaten in bones before and found it good for vegi options. On the whole the food was ok, and there was certainly plenty of it! However the service was... More

Was in town for the evening and fancied Ribs, so swung by Bones to see if they had a free table, Yes they did (I tried to eat here a few times, and invariably they are full / very busy - as it seems to be a very popular local restaurant), as it was still relatively early in the evening.... More

The restaurant has a good environment, the food is very well cooked, but you pay a Danish price. The food is worth it if you like it, the ribs the burgers they are well cooked. The service is not that great especially if you are trying to make it american style, as in Denmark waiters do not live on tips,... More

Lovely place to eat. I had the ribs on the advice of the waitress and they were excellent. Served with French fries, dressing etc and washed down with a large Tuborg classic. Excellent value for Danish prices. Staff were all young, enthusiastic and friendly.Restaurant lovely and very clean.

I was told, that yes, this is how it looks in a typical American restaurant. So if you want to take a look into US without going there, Bone's are the right choice. You have to fill out the order and then hand it over to the staff. I think it is a waste of paper, but OK, thats how... More

It's OK, The steak is good, the dressing tasty and the service was quick and friendly... but the portions were just a bit small and for the price i felt a little short changed... I'd go back.. but not if I was very hungry and there was another option close by..

A nice cozy place where one can feel the spirit of the US and have a wonderful dinner which includes steaks, burgers and other American restaurant classic, don't forget about free soft ice-cream with loads of toppings to choose from
