Bonefish is...well, it's Bonefish. It's an Outback family restaurant, and therefore puts out consistently high quality food, which is always appreciated. They obviously specialize in fresh seafood, but also offer some great choices for non-seafood faring folks. They are famous for having invented Bang Bang shrimp, which seems to have been copied by everyone under the Sun. I've seen 'Dang... More

Most times, when reviewing any establishment (but in our case... specific to restaurants) one most times considers all (or most) offerings encountered (i.e., from fare, to bill of fare; from ambiance, to cleanliness; from resources... meaning bar and/or amenities, to attitude, and so-on; even management gets that measurement). Of the may places we've traveled to, and even lived (especially where... More

I went with 2 older friends on a Monday night at 6:30. Walked in to see if there was a wait: was told there was a 15 minute wait despite a half-empty dining room. Was told the wait was due to a server shortage. Went out, got my friends, came back in (in less than 3 minutes) and was told... More

Our first visit was bad. We went a couple years before trying it again. This visit, the food and service were improved. I believe one issue is that they simply do not have their best foot forward during the early dining time. There was an over abundance of incoming wait staff wandering the dining area and socializing. The food was... More

If you do not mind a noisy and very busy restaurant, this is a great place for moderate priced seafood. The mussels are as good as any, anywhere. Make sure to ask the waiter to bring the bread at the same time so you do not waste the broth, loaded with diced tomatoes, onions and spices. All the fish dishes... More

Food most of the time is decent. Small portions for the money. Good seafood is available at a lot of good restaurants at half the price you will pay here for similar dishes.

Food here is phenomenal, been visiting this restaurant regularly for years. Truly great fare! We have a group that meet here weekly on one of the high tops in the bar area. Fabulous atmosphere! We are typically a group of 5-10 people, regulars every Tuesday. Management years ago would have taken great care of us & appreciate our loyalty. Although... More

I have been to this restaurant many times in the past and every time coming back I am pleasantly surprised by the fact that the quality of food and service are being kept to a great standard. All dishes are served with an attractive presentation and the sea food is always fresh. As one can appreciate , good sea food... More

I avoid chain restaurants in my hometown so I can experience and support local ones, but sometimes you just want something specific, like Bang Bang Shrimp. Usually when I go I end up getting this dish in one of its iterations, and love it every time. My most recent meal was a take-out one. I ordered the Lily's Chicken, and... More
