“Get the butter with the bread”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I've been here twice. The first time I got one of their quiche. It was pretty good, but a bit dry. This time I got their chicken salad and field greens. I enjoyed the chicken salad, but I wish there had been more field greens. They seemed more like a garnish than an actual addition to the dish. The bread is tasty as is their butter (which you often have to ask for to receive it). If you are having a day of shopping in Watter's Creek, it is a good place to stop off.

“New Years Eve dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We visited this resturant on New Years Eve for dinner and to listen the band, They played "Rat Pack" music... they were a very good band..except was way to loud for a resturant....the food was so very good!!! They advertised $65 per person a 5 course dinner with music,Champagne toast and party favors. I know this sounds petty but midnight was very anticlimatic. As they passed out the midnight champagne we ask about the party favors...there were none..some of the other tables had them. Either they had some but not enough for every one....
I would visit here again for dinner but never for New Years Eve...was not impressed.

“"Rat pack" atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Pretty restaurant in a lovely setting--both visits sat at the bar for drinks and dinner. Love the atmosphere-cute banquet seating across from the bar itself. The decor is a little schizophrenic-typical "french bistro" mixed with 50's pictures and the music... We love to guess who the artists are--Bing, Sinatra. Food has been consistently good and an excellent price. Nearby a Cheesecake Factory--similar prices for "cookie cutter" ok food. Asked my husband why we would ever go anywhere else in Watter's Creek! Great place for a date night! Will have to try the brunch after reading reviews.

“Fantastic Sunday Brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Outdoor seating overlooking the shops at waters Creek Shopping Plaza, t more could a girl ask for. Great food selection with deserts fit for a queen. Sitting outside on the patio feels like dining in a Bistro in Italy. The food is delicious from crepes to fresh seafood selections. This is truly an upscale brunch at a great price.

“Lunch Review - Super Great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I have been to Bonnie's now three times and each time have been very satisfied with the experience and pleasantly surprised by the sandwiches.

I have found there to be a good combination of very common sandwiches executed with a twist making them very good.

I have been there with small groups and most everyone enjoys the meals and the ambiance. I would also say they have a good wait staff. You have professionals who make it very easy with their attention to detail and knowledge of the offerings.

You can't go wrong here for lunch.
