The food was superb! Doesn't look like much from the outside, but we were thoroughly surprised by their menu. Love the local atmosphere. Great service and drinks. The salmon sandwich and drunken shrimp were both amazing. Highly recommend it.

I ordered the crab bisque which was WAY too salty. I ended up not being able to eat it all. The others in my group were more pleased with their choices. I would be open to trying it again but ordering something else. The beer selection was pretty great though.

Located in quaint neighborhood, but do not overlook Fishbones. We visited on. Monday night thinking we might avoid the crowd....Wrong! Thus place was jumping! And apparently it's because the food is worth the wait. The service is lacking, however. Slow, forgetful, but super friendly and down to earth. Not a dress up kinda place, but fun to visit for fresh... More

We love going to Fishbones for great tasting, reasonably priced food. The specials are always intriguing. A few weeks ago they had a Tom Yum soup as the soup of the day - delicious - the perfect balance of sweet and spicy and crunch from fresh vegetables. I love the tacos that are served on corn tortillas - they are... More

The weekly specials are always great and quite a value for under $14. Get there early or prepare to wait a while as seating is limited.

The atmosphere here is typical pub setting. The patrons are usually from the neighborhood and all very interesting to chat with at the bar. The servers have been here for quite awhile and are always attentive and I love that my glass has never been empty in this establishment. The service is a real team effort as no one walks... More

From the outside you may not go in but the food is quite good. The peel and eat shrimp are the best in town, other seafood dishes are tasty and the vegetables fresh and good, especially the garlic spinach. A true pub offering a variety of beers on draft and a sizable selection by the bottle.
