Beautiful views of the Indian River...With open decks...some shade.We have always enjoyed our food and service here.Almost always order the Brucchetta Grouper and the Lobster Boil on Sundays is fun to do.This is one of those little out of the way places...enjoy the river life and the sunsets.

The only reason I gave a rating of two is because most of the staff is friendly. Other than that the food is mediocre. The worst part is Bonefish Willy's misrepresents their Grouper on the menu. It is definitely not Grouper. It is most likely Vietnamese catfish. I come from a family of three generation Floridians who have spent their... More

The woman at the bed and breakfast where we were staying recommended this as a nice relaxed place to get a good meal. It was relaxing but the food was just sort of average. We had conch fritters which were mostly dough and my husband had some type of fish that was a bit bland. The best thing we ordered... More

Came back after 60 days, skipped this place for two years due to very bad prior experience. Wife and I decided to try for a fish sandwich lunch on a Saturday. Deck has been expanded and covered; looks good and much more comfortable with the shade; they need fans very badly. The day was still and my wife overheated and... More

This is a low key place set on the river. They serve good seafood, in a relaxed and laid back atmosphere. Definitely eat outside on the patio, unless it's raining. The interior is rather small and cramped feeling. Every time I come to Melbourne I eat at least one dinner her, and suggest that you do the same the next... More

Wow, is that delicious!!! Lived in the area some time ago and now travel to this area on business and always make it a point to stop here for my favorite meal. Had the coconut crusted grouper fingers this time too, also really good. Cool little place on the river with a great view.

It's been a few years since I visited Melbourne, but wanted to revisit one of my favorite restaurants. I was sad to see negative reviews and was wary about giving it a try. My coworker and I decided the view coupled with a warm breezy evening would make it worth the risk. I started with a side salad with raspberry... More

Cannot remember when I first found this place but it is great. You are sitting right on the water and the food is good what more can you ask for. I am a Realtor and a lot of times when I am out showing property we get hungry . I have bought a lot of people here over the years... More

My husband and I were looking for a local place to take his family for Father's Day, when Bonefish Willy's was suggested to us. We had to sit inside that day, as it was raining outside, but I hear that the outside seating is nice, as well. Upon entering the inside, my first impression was that it was very small... More

I stopped for a few beers and dinner. Had been there in the past and had liked it. This time though, I first noticed that the prices were very high and there was no options for lighter fare. The worst part though was the obnoxious "employee" at the bar. He was berating the waitresses and other staff. He was being... More
