Great for dates or small gatherings. The bar has a couple televisions to watch a game and great staff. The new menu is really worth trying out as it tastes wonderful and selections are huge. Make a reservation if you are going on a Friday or Saturday – this location is quite popular! If you have not been here –... More

Excellent food but our server was average at best. Little eye contact, never offered a refill on my tea. Really?! Anyway the food was very, very good and overall would probably visit again.

The atmosphere is quiet and a great place to catch up with friends. It was a little dark but comfortable. I had heard so much about the bang bang shrimp so we decided to try their new appetizer "bang bang shrimp flatbread". It was delicious with a spicy kick. Mozzarella cheese, crispy shrimp, cilanto, with a creamy sauce drizzled over... More

We've visited Bonefish Grill several times, and have never been disappointed. We were first introduced to it by some friends. They recommended the Bang Bang Shrimp and the Calamari, and we've never looked back. Honestly, my wife and I make a meal by each getting the shrimp and splitting an order of the calamari. Both appetizers are fantastic, and a... More

First time visitor. The waiter was great and kept our drinks filled. When we were served, there was a 10 minute delay with one of the dishes. Food was good although not exceptional for the caliber of the restaurant. The atmosphere is great and I would try this restaurant again.

We ate at the Bonefish Grill based upon previous Trip Advisor reviews. It was pretty good. We had a nice server and the food was pretty good.

Sorry Bonefish, I just don't know how you fell so far from being a favorite of mine to a least fave of mine nowadays. High turnover in staff = inconsistency. Our waiter seemed half-baked... The strawberry salad had a rancid tasting dressing on it so I sent it back. The bang bang shrimp still rock but little else stands out... More

Another great meal at a Bonefish. Food quality and service are consistently good at this restaurant - we come back year after year when visiting WDM.

We had a large group and they allocated 2 waiters to us so that we would get served at the same time.
