Great service and atmosphere for an interesting light lunch.

Great restaurant for an uncomplicated light, tasty lunch for those who don't always want to eat heavy food fit to bursting! The tilapia with mango salsa and soft shellfish tacos hit the spot ; we were not able to forgo the Key Lime pie, which is the best we have had so far! A nice little... read more

We have enjoyed coming to Bonefish for a couple of years. This season changed our mind. We tried twice and that was enough. We did come thru the week during happy hour to enjoy the half price cocktails. If you arrive after 5:30, forget getting a seat in the bar area. It is packed, loud and chaotic. We tried our... More

The restaurant looks nice, as always. The server was wonderful, as always. But this will be the last time we will go there. The quality of the food has gone down a lot. We were unhappy with the last two visits ... but decided to give it one more try. Surely their lobster roll that we had last time was... More

Visited with a party of 10 the Friday evening prior to Easterner Suday which explains the painfully slow service. That said, the appetizers and main courses were delicious and appropriately priced. Both adults and children had a wonderful dining experience.

We made a reservation because the last time we tried to drop in, it was so crowded at the Tamiami Bonefish that we had to turn away. But with a 7pm reservation we breezed in and got a table right away in a cozy corner. Our server wore a chef's white outfit which at first confused us until we saw... More

Casey, our waiter, was attentive, knowledgeable and engaging. His descriptions of his recommended dishes caused us to salivate, and he was right! The sliced ahi tuna sparkled in flavor. My first-ever non-seafood item was the thick, juicy pork chop, which was smothered in a delicious peppercorn-like sauce and other toppings. As the evening was winding down, he shared food and...

Typical Bonefish -- which is a good thing. Food is consistently very good and service is "take your chances" -- I've had some excellent servers here and some who need remedial training. Always busy and has a vibrant bar scene, especially at happy hour.

One of our favourite chain restaurants with excellent seafood and beef ... try the deep fried shrimp taco appetizer ... the potatoes au gratin are an excellent side to anything from a fish sandwich or burger to a full steak or seafood dinner

First visit to this location. very disappointing. Salad was so bland we questioned whether it had dressing. I think they didn't mix it and we just got olive oil. Mahi with mango salsa was just ok. Potatoes au gratin was tasty and might have been good if it didn't seem like it sat under a heat lamp all night. Will... More

I have been anxious to try Bonefish. I really wasn't over impressed with their menu. The food was ok. I got a Florida Cobb Salad and that was ok. I tasted the fish from the fish and chips and wasn't impressed. Would not be against going there again but wouldn't be a first choice for me
