Typical barfood but consistently good

Not usually a gourmet restaurant, but consistent and good beers. The service is good, the menu is good ---even if not fine dining. Sometimes we go just because it is casual and fun to be at.

Fishbones was a bit of a disappointment. If you are looking for a loud fun bar atmosphere, then you will like it. If you want more atmosphere, this isn't for you. Food and service were average. A bit pricey for the quality you received. Not my favorite and wouldn't eat there again. Too many other good restaurant choices available.

Whenever I see conch chowder on the menu I just have to try it. This conch chowder is to die for! It's nice and spicy, brought a tear to my eye. Get the bowl, a cup will leave you wanting more. Chock full of veggies, conch, etc. in a rich broth. My friend had the oyster basket and fries. Nicely... More

Our group asked to sit outside for dinner. Even though there were several open tables, we were told we had a 30 min. wait but we could eat inside. We chose to go ahead and eat upstairs inside. I did check one more time by the bar area to see if there was any possibilities and spotted a table for... More

Duck NC starts slowing down in Oct and you will see many restaurants closing up for the season. Fishbones, Im told stays open year round but does have varied hours depending on the crowd so call ahead. We visited to watch some college football and grab some bar grub. The beers on tap were few - maybe 5, one was... More

We ate lunch here today. I ordered the fried shrimp basket and my husband ordered the fried oyster basket. I counted 10 shrimp plus fries. The shrimp were barely battered and lightly fried. They were awesome! The oysters were fresh and perfectly breaded and cooked. Both baskets had more food than we could eat. We also had a Hurricane drink,... More

We stumbled in to this establishment for a late lunch to avoid the awful weather weekend of 26th September? Our son enjoyed the ultimate fish sandwich which was enormous!! Everyone are something different and there were no complaints from any of us. The portions were huge and served fairly quickly. It would have been nice to dine outside in the... More

Food was so so... Price was OK .. The menu needed more options, the calamari I was told was good but it wasn't very appealing.

Hubby and I ate lunch there and ordered the Ultimate Fish Sandwich to share. What a great choice!! First of all, it was huge! Plenty of food for the two of us and we were hungry. Delicious piece of fresh grouper topped with caramelized onions and mushrooms, smoked Gouda cheese and a sweet and smoky aioli. We also split a... More
