while passing through Bowling Green on way back to Nashville we stopped by here for lunch. Service was great, food was great, awesome draft craft beer selection and some great high end whiskeys too..... (yes whiskeys/ bourbons...lol) Burgers are high end, not typical or simple, very large and fair priced. Definitely a mom/pop place that is worth eating at if... More

On the Bone is a very good place for dinner in downtown Bowling Green. The prices are affordable, service is good and I have never been there at a time when it was overly crowded. The burgers are of good quality and might be the best in the area. The beer selection is limited but I believe that they are... More

The only reason we ate at this place was because of a half off coupon we came across on an app. Boy are we glad we found it. It's located downtown in a nice area on Chestnut street. It is across the street from Thai Thai. We ordered the Steak Carbonera, which turned out to be one of the single... More

Parking at thus restaurant is rather confusing since it is a very old home converted to a restaurant. It appears it would be difficult for someone that requires wheelchair access (maybe there is accommodation I didn't notice.) The building has amazing woodwork you'll marvel at. It's truly charming, but if they're busy you may find difficulty carrying a conversation with... More

My husband & I went with another couple to celebrate a birthday. The burgers were good but we weren't blown away, at least they were very reasonably priced. They have some unique combinations i.e. peanut butter & bacon, I got the bacon & egg burger. And they have everything else you could want on a burger. The hand cut fries... More

I wanted an evening for my wife's 40th birthday that let her know how special she is. On the Bone was amazing in their accommodation of our party. On the Bone helped prepare a select menu that was creative and appealing to all of our guests. The atmosphere was sophisticated yet inviting and the evening was full of laughter and... More

For some time I have been wanting to try On The Bone. My husband and I decided to go there on Friday evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary and his upcoming birthday. What a disappointment. After viewing photo's of the food and reading other reviews, I was very optimistic that we would have a fabulous meal. Truth is it was... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at On The Bone last night and had an excellent meal. She had the filet and I had the strip. Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly. My steak had the mango habenero glaze, which has a little kick to it. The sides were great as well. Service was excellent. The only minor... More

Found this on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. I can't believe what a great experience this was. The Bread Pudding was the BEST I have EVER had. The consistency was perfect. Moist but not runny at all. The flavor was out of this world! The prices are very reasonable for the spectacular taste and large portions. The... More

I went to this restaurant after multiple friends suggested it. I was very disappointed. The food wasn't very good. When our food came out, I had to ask our waitress if it was the correct items because everything was completely different from what the menu described it as. I won't be going back, and I wouldn't suggest it.
