Been here several times. Food is usually very good. I was most disappointed with the prime rib. They smoke it. It tasted like ham. They used to have a wonderful roast duck but removed it from the menu. After the hefty price hike a year...ago, I no longer go there.More

We picked this last minute as we were staying close by. Boy were we not disappointed with the choice! I'm a steak lover and count my steak as a top three in my all time steaks! It was fantastic, loved it. Can't recall the rest...of my food after my brief love affair with my New York Strip! Pic attached. Service was great team there are super helpful and friendly and the wine we had was love;y. Did i mention the steak! Holy moly it was good!More

Our dinner was fresh and totally delicious! The crab cake appetizer was cooked on cedar plank and the BEST we’ve ever tasted...Full of fresh crab! This was followed by a salad with a dressing I tried to recreate when I returned home! Oh my!! So...good. The two entrees were equally fabulous. My steak kabob was not only tasty but was so tender I could cut it with a fork. My husband ordered the whole Gulf snapper which covered his plate. It also was great. Andrea Sutton, operating partner, assisted with my order due to my food allergies. She continued to return to make sure everything was fine. Next time we are in Orlando we WILL return.More

I'm from out of state. Been to Fish Bones on multiple occasions on several trips. I've recommended to particular friends and always a good time and a tasty meal. One of my favorites anywhere!

Four of us visited Fish Bones for dinner while in Orlando. It was the first time any of us had been to this restaurant. The atmosphere was nice; it felt kind of like Key West. Our waiter arrived very shortly after we were seated and...took our drink order. When he returned with the drinks he went over the menu and answered our questions. We asked for 10-15 minutes to enjoy our cocktails. When he returned we ordered our dinners. Three of us ordered grouper, one blackened. The fourth person ordered the cedar plank crab cakes. The salads were served almost immediately and our meals were served within a reasonable amount of time. We all enjoyed our delicious choices. Since this is primarily a steak and seafood restaurant, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the many menu choices. We will return to Fish Bones when we are back in Orlando or perhaps we will try any of the other restaurants in their dining group. One negative: When we arrived we were seated promptly but in a cramped booth in the back room. We had requested a table because one of the persons in our group uses a cane and it's easier to get in and out of a table rather than a booth. Our request was ignored. We didn't make an issue out of it because the restaurant was very busy. It would have been a much better experience if we had a table.More

From the moment you enter this well presetend restaurant you know you're going to have a great meal - cuts of meat, fish and shellfish are on display in the reception area. Taken to our table, we were greeted by our host (Daniel if I...recall correctly) who was informative, attentive and an exceptional dry humoured guy - nothing was too much trouble. We ordered a NY steak and seafood platter as our main courses - both came with a (large) tasty salad beforehand. Both meals were delicious - the steak was cooked to absolute perfection and the platter had just the right combination to enjoy. One of the managers came over during the meal to ensure everything was to our liking - a very nice touch, thank you Luis! We were all for returning for our last evening, sadly the CV-19 virus stopped this as they decided to look after their staff and close - the first in the area, and demonstrated their caring culture to both diners and staff alike. If you wish for a fantastic meal just off International Drive - GO HERE!More

We arrived during a slow time in the restaurant. There were 5-6 tables occupied in the 'main' restaurant, but we were taken back to the atrium section. Which that is no problem, HOWEVER, picture this: There are many tables in this section, on both sides...of a half wall. We were squeezed right next to the only other couple in this area, not on the side of the wall where the atrium is, and frankly the 'worst' part of the room. It was dark and cramped. What in the world was the hostess thinking with so many, better tables available? We asked to be moved, and they did accommodate us with attitude to spare. After we were seated at the new table, another group came in and they were seated at the same, cramped, dark table we had just left. Well this group was having none of it, and unlike us, they did not ask to be moved, they just stood up and said loudly "why would they cram us back here?" and they seated themselves at a table near us. When the manager came around and we mentioned this, he just shrugged his shoulders, and said that's how we seat people. Really? Wow. That same manager took sampler spoons of appetizers to certain customers, but not us, nor some other nearby tables. I was bold enough to ask about this, and again that same manager said "well ma'am, we just take those complimentary 'spoons' to who we feel are VIP's" WHAT?! What kind of answer is THAT?! I couldn't believe he was serious. After I asked about it, he then grudgingly brought over two spoons with meatballs the size of your thumbnail, and said "I reconsidered". Well buddy, if you had to even "consider" if we were worthy enough for you to bring a meatball that size, then you have BIG PROBLEMS. The more I think about this entire restaurant experience, the more I feel like sending this review to Charley Woodsby himself. I am certain that Mr. Woodsby would be shocked at these practices occurring at his restaurant. When considering whether to write this review, I read through some other reviews here on Trip Advisor. Seems these issues I am writing about have been complained about before. Why would a restaurant of this cailber not immediately address such basic courtesy problems? Keep your dime-sized meatball (reserved for only whom you deem worthy to receive it), and your cramped dark spaces (when the restaurant has plenty of space), and I will take my $$ elsewhere. Wow, just WOW.More

My wife and I arrived in Orlando last week for a weeks respite from the cold and snowy winter in Denver. We googled some fish places and liked the menu here. The restaurant is good-sized, very clean, with great service! We ate here twice and...only ordered seafood. I will say, however, that the steaks looked and smelled incredible! Side dishes were creative and very tasty. My wedge salad was good. I never got a chance to eat dessert, as the main meal stuffed me. This restaurant is conveniently located and we will return when in Orlando.More
