Okay experience

We enjoyed eating dinner on the porch - riverfront view. Our entrees were okay. We had the grilled mahi mahi and coconut shrimp. Mahi didn't have much flavor and coconut shrimp could've been crispier. Service was good.

They have an excellent Fish Gumbo that is seasoned as it should be if you were in in New Orleans. They took domestic draft beers off tap in order to sell Craft beers, that I personally do not care for. You have to buy bottled. Staff is constantly changing that says they must have a problem keeping good help. I... More

Though our meal had some highlights, the overall experience requires that I update my previous review of Bonefish Willy's - a place I have enjoyed for over 15 years. To start, our server was invisible, or missing most of the evening. You can't get your waitresses attention if you never see her. So, there were long gaps between drinks, salads... More

I enjoyed the crab cakes and the fishermans salad. Great place to sit outside on the water and have a quiet dinner

As I walked in the people walking out were literally shouting at me that the place was amazing and that it's the best food ever - I hoped that they were right and this would be a great night - it was. I was actually on my own but a family asked if I would like to join them and... More

I love sitting out on the deck overlooking the Indian River. It is so relaxing. The service was very good and very friendly. Every time we are in the area this is a place we go. The fish sandwich is one of the best I have had. It is the salsa that puts this sandwich over the top. Also they... More

Awesome seafood!!! My husband, mom, dad, and I all went there for supper. Amazing food. We got the conch fritters and the crab cakes for appetizers. Very well made. We had coconut shrimp, mahi-mahi, and tilapia for entrees. Amazing taste. It is a small little place overlooking the river. It is not a fast food joint so just sit back,... More

Had an office luncheon during the week. My self and one assistant ordered the Grouper Basket, very full and cooked properly but it was advertised as Grouper. No way! Based on texture, cut and appearance it could only be Swai. Article in local newspaper said that several restaurants have been caught making this substitution. Swai is definitely cheaper than Grouper.

Bonefish Willy's never seems to disappoint. For my last visit, I decided to try the crab cakes and they were fantastic. The gumbo soup was excellent as well. The atmosphere and view of the water are great benefits in addition to the stellar food. Even though I had no complaints, my girlfriend and mother were not impressed with the asparagus.... More
