“Frustrating”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Arrived in Hilton Head and was recommended to Frankie Bones by a local hotel. We did not have reservations, but we were offered room at the bar, which we appreciated. There was an open chair at the bar, occupied by a women's purse. The woman refused to move her purse and move over a bit, in order to accommodate a extra chair for my wife and I. The hostess was at a loss. I understand that she did not want to offend a customer, but the reality was that Frankie Bones lost two customers that night, for the sake of the purse. The hostess was very nice to us, offering to seat us outside. Just a little too warm and humid that night. we went next door to Wiseguys had a great meal and wine and spent our $100 there!

“You won't leave hungry.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We visited Frankie Bones to celebrate our anniversary with some of our family members. We had been there the year before and remembered it as being delicious. Our memories served us very well. The food was as excellent as we remembered. Our favorite dish is the Lobster Mac N Cheese. The service was great as well. This restaurant is definitely on our list to return to the next time we are visiting HHI.

“Love Frankie Bones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We love Frankie Bones. We always make it a point to eat here when we're on vacation, and usually we eat here twice. We love it that much. One of our favorite dishes is the twice baked potato spring rolls but everything is outstanding. You have to go!

“Podge 747”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is another great Hilton Head dining venue carefully hidden on Main St at the upper end of the island off the WH Parkway 278. Like all of the SERG group the decor and menu is unique to the restaurant, nothing like a chain feel to it. The retaurand is quiter than its sisters but the food and service is equally superb. I went there specifically for the lamb chops and was not disappointed. My gang had equally good steaks. Reasonably priced and great food. Probably not the venue for small kids.

“Food was delicious both times - service was better the first time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We first visited Frankie Bones in March of 2012. Our waiter acted as if he were a waiter back in the day...he was so fun and great. He advised our growing teen to try the teriyaki steak and fried shrimp fish. The steak was perfectly cooked and delicious! We all had great meals but were particularly impressed with our server. I wish I remembered his name! We went back there and asked if there was a waiter that for his description and they said he no longer worked there. We were seated in a booth but very close to the bathrooms - so not a great seat. We assumed they were packed but when we walked around later, we discovered there were many tables available and even though we had a reservation, we were seated near the bathroom. Our teen ordered his favorite and once again it was a hit. Our other child had the spaghetti and meatballs and loved that too. We also ordered the salmon Oscar and the filet. Everything was huge - we took doggie bags! Entrees can be split. The only thing we would change is that they have a better wine selection.
