Great Local Spot!

We finally tried this eclectic foodie spot. It was great! The staff was friendly and the food was wonderful. The menu offered a nice variety of local favorites. The grass-fed burger was excellent. We will definitely be back to enjoy this place soon.

Met friends here for lunch. Great menu and our selections were all great. Would recommend for a reasonably priced casual meal.

Fishbones is one of my go-to places. It works for a casual meal or upscale meal. I always get their twisted chicken burrito for lunch - the flavor is phenomenal. At dinner they have some specials that change. I've had multiple fish meals that have been excellent. The service is often slow/ very slow but the wait staff are always... More

The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately, the food made me leave sooner than I'd planned. The mashed potatoes were good, but that's the only thing that really was good. I'll be back for a drink since it's dog friendly, but not for food.

I've lived in Greensboro for 20+ years. Came to Fishbones when it first opened. Used to go a lot, when it was one of the only places of its type to go. Still go, every once in a while. It's just OK. Burritos have a lot of rice. Portions, getting smaller every time I go, it seems. Sandwiches, too much... More

After sports at the Coliseum, and just minutes away, had excellent etoufee-style shrimp & grits, a tasty burrito, and an awesome (huge, delicious, and beautiful) 'twisted chicken' taco salad. Nice beer selection. Limited outdoor seating, but comfortable in or out. Park on the street. Easy and fun!

I have been to Fishbones several times before and been very pleased with the food. More often than not, I have ordered the Twisted Chicken Taco, which rivals the tacos at "Crafted The Art of the Taco". On this lunch trip I ordered the Smoked Salmon Sandwich. It was fabulous! Normally, I go for the fries for my side but... More

Atmosphere is unrefined but the food totally surprises. Service is always excellent and servers are knowledgeable and pleasant. Not a big place, Usually a line.
