Overpriced and slow service

First, it took almost an hour for our dinner to come to the table. The portions were small for the price. There was nothing outstanding about the meal. For the price, you can buy a few pounds of seafood; and grill it yourself; and have it hot and tasty.

When there are so many good places to choose from, there is no reason to go here. The worst service I have every seen when handling a food order that was not correct and it wasn't even at our table. Our food was not very good either. We only ate a few bites and left.

Wife and I ordered "surf and turf" but upgraded $ the seafood for lobster. Crab patty app. very tasty and salad small but good. Dinner arrived with a host of flys (we were outdoors) but the food looked great so I dug into the lobster. Yuck! It reaked of ammonia, a sure sign the lobster was dead before cooking! Alerting...

First off, the service was the worst I've experienced in years! Luckily the view is amazing because everything else about tgis this place is sub par. THe coconut shrimp was overcooked, the crab cakes tasted like they've came out of a can, and the plates were dirty!! Again, I must mention the horrible service and our waitress was ridiculously slow.... More

I've eaten here many times and the food is always good. Only reason that I don't give this place more stars is due to their service. It takes forever to get a waitress to take your order and forget it if you want a refill on drinks or need extra napkins, etc. The view is as amazing as the food,... More

My snow crab legs were overcooked, grainy and hard to crack open. The sides were not good. Pineapple coleslaw with pasta in it? Really? Salad was very skimpy and it looked like Mexican fare the way each ingredient in the salad was all separate on the plate. Our tab was $74 and we had no alcohol and only one dessert.... More

My son had the mahi and I had grouper. His was sensational and mine was average. I'm happy that he picked right! I really missed Chester, the live artist who used to play on Saturday nights. Somehow the restaurant has lacked the charm and ambiance that his drums and melodies brought to the breezy and expansive deck. Saturday's entertainment was... More

I've been vacationing in the Melbourne area for 20 years and never happened upon this seafood restaurant along the intracoastal waterway in Melbourne. Sadly most of the restaurants I've visited over the years were tourists traps with lousy fish and high prices but Bonefish was a pleasant surprise. We had steamer clams (a little small) clam cakes ( very clammy... More

Having had a great meal last year when I was in the area, I returned with my husband, telling him how great the food was. This second time it was terrible. I had shellfish over pasta. The shellfish was stringy and anything but fresh. A couple of the shells did not open up. The pasta was dry and warmed over,... More
