Great menu, great service

Had the lady dragon sushi to start. Very fresh. My boyfriend had the stuffed grouper, I had the boullliabaise. It had lobster, king crab, jumbo shrimp, and grouper. Both were incredible. Nick was awesome and made our experience very memorable.

I have been here a few times but have yet to be impressed. Average food, dull service, and poor value each time have left me sorely disappointed. I can't imagine returning anytime soon, there are much better places nearby.

Stopped here on our way home and it was excellent. Started with house bread. Wife and kids got fried shrimp and I got filet with truffle butter. Large portions and excellent service. Appears pricy at first but you definitely get what you pay for, stuffed! Calamari was fresh and cooked perfectly.

Met an old business partner for a weeknight dinner and he could not have picked a better place. First visit to Fishbones and was impressed with the open fire grill and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Got there for happy hour which had reasonably priced, signature martinis and draft beer specials. I recommend the Smoked Bahamian Fish dip for an... More

My expectations may have been to high. I don't mind paying extra for a good steak, but their steaks are definitely not good. I ordered a ribeye cooked medium - I've never seen a steak cooked more well done, I tried but couldn't eat it. They were quick to take it back and replace it. The replacement came after nearly...

The service and the food are excellent. Pleasant atmosphere and friendly, professional staff. It has been a very long time that my wife and I have ordered different entree's and raved about both. Wonderful experience....I will return.

Visited FishBones with a colleague whilst over on a business trip. The restaurant was recommended by more regular visitors to the area and we understand why. The food was excellent. I had the Crispy Brussel Sprouts to start and then Shrimp and Scallops. Both dishes were cooked to perfection.

Over the past year Fishbones quality of food preparation had declined from its original excellence. I was excited about my last visit to the Lake Mary restaurant because my favorite meal, stuffed shrimp and scallops were prepared to perfection once again! Just when I was about to give up they showed me what I knew they could do! I have... More

I used to love Fishbones, but honestly, It hasn't been the same in a while. Ordered the Bang-Bang shrimp, which isn't even on the menu anymore, but they were nice enough to make it for me. It was not the same....very small portion and soggy!! It was overpriced as well. Ordered some sushi too and it was just ok, nothing... More

This is not an "expensive" place, but for the money the food should really be better. There was something wrong with my fish which I couldn't quite put my finger on. Didn't finish it. The vegetable side dish was some kind of squash made to look like spaghetti, which tasted very oily. Wasn't very overwhelmed by the service either. Nice... More
