Stopped in for happy hour. Tried the Tostoda Tower Shrimp...yumm large Tostoda shells layer with shrimp, crab meat, cabbage, chipolti mayo. Delicious! Tried the fried mac and cheese bites. Interesting may be better with cheddar cheese rather than a white cheese, interesting sauce came with it a sweet and sour. Limited flavoured alcohol such as whipped/vanilla rum or vodkas. Cute,...

This was the second timed I have dined at a Bonefish Grill. The prior visit, in another city, was quite disappointing. This time, I was with a group of coworkers. All of us left pleased and mildly surprised at the quality. Our appetizers were generously sized, and the seafood entrees were all good. I had a lobster dish, as there... More

I've been here a handful of times with my husband. He's gotten different fish or seafood dishes. I always get the crab cakes. I love them. They are so light and crunchy with a good amount of crab meat. Our service has always been good. It's quickly becoming one of our favorites.

Interesting, but satisfying visit for a mid-day meal. Felt like having seafood, heard of this place through a friend & this was a first-time visit. Upon arrival the parking lot was bare. We walk in & the host is not at his station to greet us, but we hear a greeting from across the way near the bar as he... More

Bang bang shrimp is awesome as always! I had the trout which was perfect and my boyfriend had the tuna bowl. Both dinners were great!

atmosphere is great. nice clean place. but the fish is meh. "Asian" sauce on my my wood grilled salmon was so subdued, I think it would have put the fish to sleep when it was alive. Wagyu beef in potstickers was ground to tasteless mush. coconut shrimp was ok, but hey just cause they're called shrimp did they have to... More

I try the Bang Bang Shrimp and the Rib-eye Steak and both where very good. The service was friendly and they have a good variety of wines and drinks.

This place is delicious and worth every penny. I know it's a chain but they switch up their menu frequently which gives you more things to try. The wait staff is very professional and accommodating. The bang bang shrimp is to die for as well as their smore's pizza!!! A must try if your looking for something new!

For the quality of seafood, I think this is a pretty good value here in the Des Moines area...even considering that perhaps compared to other Bonefish Grill locations, this one might fall a bit short. The seafood itself is very good, bordering on excellent. The sides are well done...though I'm pretty sure the mashed potatoes were instant. I know that... More

I love fresh seafood. Bonefish was one of our favorite restaurants in Cary, NC that I went to either for business or special occasion. However, this one in Des Moines makes me feel sad. My last visit was in March for dinner but we stopped by for lunch this time. Last time, my waiter has no idea about the menu... More
