Bonefish never disappoints.
Excellent service, great food.
Bang Bang shrimp is absolutely delicious. So is raspberry creme brûlée. :)

“Didn't live up to the commercials.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

Very average food. Nothing special. My husband was anxious to have the shrimp after hearing all the radio commercials. He said it was only OK. I had the chicken, and again, just OK.

“Good but miniscule entree portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2009

Bonefish is very corporate and their menus are pretty much the same at every location. Bonefish is owned by the same company that owns Outback and Roys.

Servers appear to be well trained and friendly. Appetizers and entrees are reasonably priced. My major complaint however is with the portion size of the entrees, which it seems on every visit gets smaller and smaller and smaller. We found on our last visit that both our entrees were laughably tiny – approximately two to three bites to it! I’d guess my salmon filet to be about 2 ounces cooked. My dinner companion got the sirloin, which was supposed to be a size ounce filet according to the menu. I am not sure what universe that was in because it was clearly about 2 ounces cooked weight at best.

I suspect the chain is trying to cut back portions rather than raise prices in today’s economy – but we will not be returning anytime soon because of this meal.

Their fish tastes outstanding! It's expensive, but worth it in the quality.... not quantity. For some of us bigger eaters, you might still leave hungry, but you'll still be impressed.
