Would love to go here weekly. The appetizers and salads are excellent and the entrees are always great. Get the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer. The sauces are wonderful. Service is always exceptional and the desserts are always good. Never a bad dinner.

Over the years since it first opened in Columbia area, the quality of food has noticeably slipped. For instance, the fish and chips is now the lowly tilapia lacking flavor and firmness. The bread is overcooked and vegetables greasy. Even the music is louder and less enjoyable.

Just enough spice and plenty of crab taste is the way I'd describe Bonefish's delicious crab chowder. It's thick and rich, the portion is ok, but not as large as I would like. I also had their Lobster Stuffed Shrimp, 4 per serving, not an overly large portion, but with an appetizer and bread it is enough to fill your... More

I stopped in for a late evening dinner with some of my colleagues while we were in town. The facility was very dimly lit but the food more than made up for the lack of ability to read the menu.

We dine at this restaurant only on special occasions, but we've been there often enough to know that we can expect excellent seafood and first rate service in pleasant surroundings (though nothing special). It's a bit pricey, but not outlandishly so. I do have a bone to pick with the Sunday brunch. When an upscale seafood restaurant advertises that it... More

This was my first experience eating at this restaurant. I actually give them 3.5 stars based on the great service. The food (the California Omelet) was fine but not exceptional or in any way remarkable. Plus it was served just warm and not hot, as if it had been sitting for a while after it was cooked. I've had omelets... More

as I am not usually a great friend of the bigger chain restaurants, this is definitely one of the best you can choose. the food selection is very good, the service is right on and it all tastes so good. not what you may think. this is a wonderful place to stop and eat!

The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. We ordered the ceviche appetizer, scallops/shrimp dinner, Cajun fish taco dinner, and pumpkin crème brulee. Everything was delicious. Service was the best. We had reservations and recommend making reservations to avoid a long wait. We were there on a Monday night and there were a lot of people waiting to be seated.

My wife and I decided to have dinner at the Columbia Bonefish Grill on our way home to Myrtle Beach after spending a most interesting afternoon touring the DOE Savannah River Site. Arriving at about 6:20 PM, I was surprised to see how crowded this restaurant was for a Wednesday evening, We were told that it would be a 20... More

We were surprised to have a half hour wait for Sunday brunch. Turns out several people had some kind of coupon. We didn't. The table service was slow but it's brunch so that's ok. I was very excited about a surf and turf Benedict as I rate a brunch place on their Benedict's. It really had the potential to be... More
