If you love seafood, try Fishones. They also have a great burger! The quality of food is excellent (my favorite is the Seafood Mediteranium and daily specials always look appealing) and the value on food and drinks is good except for anything with lobster. The fried food is not the least bit greasy and is outstanding. The staff is the... More

I've been to Fishbones several times. The food is always good. The service can be sporadic. The last time we visited was on 9/1/14. The service on this occassion was very poor. I ordered the fried seafood platter which was substantial in portion. It came with a small tub of tartar sauce and a small tub of cocktail sauce. I... More

The seafood was delicious..fresh...cooked to perfection. There salads are very refreshing compared to the regular lettuce,tomatoes and cucumber usually put out. The seating is worth waiting for......always a crowd so it does get loud, but people there are so friendly there. I have been there 4 times and my experience is alway wonderful.

Fantastic experience. I sat at the bar on a Thur night at 8pm and got the last seat. Packed means they're doing something right. I opted for the chowder and then tuna. Both were incredible. Bartender was very attentive, friendly and knew what to recommend on menu. The tuna was like a filet mignon of bluefin. It was amazing. Prompt... More

Just enjoyed dinner outside on the patio. The Strawberry Fields salad with goat cheese is amazing. I had the Norwegian Salmon and my wife had Steamers, both with baked potato. Everything was awesome.

I have never been to a restaurant with such poor customer service. The staff is uninterested and rude. This restaurant does not have reservations but has something called "call ahead seating". We called and indicated a party of 3 would arrive at 6:15 pm. Upon arrival we were told we were the next to be seated. For 40 minutes we... More

In town on business and was told to try this restaurant if I liked seafood. It was very busy when we got there and it was loud and crowded inside. The hostess offered us a table outside where it was quieter and not as cramped. Sat outside under a pergola which was nice. Ordered shrimp cocktail with jumbo shrimp. It... More

On a Thursday night, we drove from Bolton, about 20 miles to Fishbone Restaurant, thinking that, according to TripAdvisor ratings, we would have a very nice seafood dinner and maybe make it our special go to restaurant once a month. I had used google maps street view to spot a large P for public parking down an alley right across... More
