Tried other restaurants in the area and wanted to give it a try. I wished I had went somewhere else. Very disappointed.

One task when visiting your kid in college is to find special restaurants not far from the campus which don't drain your wallet like a tuition bill, but special enough to return. The intersection of Walker & Elma is home to Fishbone's which goes beyond the beer and burger spots which seem to be everywhere in Greensboro. After 2 visits... More

I'm come here often as it's close to my house and have yet to have a bad experience. Service is usually good, atmosphere is excellent, and food is always superb. If i'm stopping by for lunch I usually opt for the bologna sandwich. It may sound like something a 9 year old boy would order but it is incredibly good.... More

Our friends who lived nearby suggested that we dine at Fishbones. It was a pleasurable experience in a location that we had not previously visited. It is not a shopping center but a cluster of 4 or 5 businesses (primarily restaurants and a neighborhood grocery store) surrounded by upscale single family neighborhoods. I enjoyed a fish dish (salmon) with very... More

Love this place. Love their fish dishes, though they have a nice selection of other stuff. I love their organic side dishes: organic kale, garlic mashed potatoes, etc. The chairs are super uncomfortable but their have nice outdoor seating for lunch. We go almost every week. Good food.

Went last night for dinner with a colleague and was very impressed. The beer selection was very good, the atmosphere friendly and the food outstanding. I had the special which was a blackened flounder burrito and my colleague had the fish and chips, both were terrific. I would definetly recommend this place but get there early for a seat.

This has become a must-visit restaurant when I visit Greensboro. It's a fantastic, cozy neighborhood restaurant, so it may be hard to find a seat but the food is definitely worth it. The menu is creole-inspired and it takes me a while to make my selections. My first visit I had the excellent shrimp and grits, which makes my mouth... More

The true definition of a neighborhood gem. You won't find Fishbones listed in the top guides - damn, I don't think it even has a website. But if you want reliably excellent food, a great atmosphere and a friendly crowd, Fishbones is the place for you. If none of this appeals do yourself and us a favor and go somewhere... More

I have visited this place a handful of times and every time has been delightful. The menu is large with selection all including fresh and rich ingredients. Prices 're a little higher then average hence why I don't go often but so worth every penny!
