I love Bonefish. The restaurant is comfortable and attractive... & the service is good. I was there on a night when I didn't feel 100%. My waitress brought me hot water with lemon, lime & orange slices. It was a real unexpected kindness. The food is delicious .., the menu varied and interesting. You can have fish however you want...

Although it was about 40 degrees last night, Bonefish provides heat lamps for their patio guests! The service was good even though the servers did not have coats. Our server went above and beyond making sure our visit was the best!

Bang Bang Shrimp is on special on Wednesdays. Always great. And $3 drinks and wine til 6:30 is fabulous. Tonight I had the new item, cod with panko and crabmeat. It was yummy. We sat outside and watched a great sunset, too. Life is good!

First of all our server, Karen was excellent! They could be a little more generous with portions. I had fish and chips. I thought the fish was good. The house dressing is delicious I also had a mango sangria. That was also good.

My wife and I were quite happy with our recent dinner here. Decent house wines before 6 pm for only $3.50 to start. We split a wedge salad, and they brought it out ready to share on 2 plates, very nice, no "upcharge". She had a salmon main course and was quite happy, while I had the mahi oscar and... More

Thru October 9th, Bonefish Grill is offering the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer for $6 every day. In addition they finally added haddock, a cold water fish to their hooked on Tuesday menu. Enough with the warm water fish. We need some cold water selections. Understand that all of your market does not come from the Midwest and the south.

We went to celebrate our anniversary with friends. We have eaten here many times. Tonight, my husband's and my fish were not the best. We had Wild Snapper and Shrimp and Grouper with Shrimp. The fish was seasoned well, but both of our dinners were on the dry side. Not usual for this restaurant. Table mates had Chilean Sea Bass... More

I've been to Bonefish Grill in a few other locations. You can always depend on the interesting menu, good food, and good service. This Bonefish was no exception. The waitress was excellent, knowing when to come by and when not to. The food was good and enjoyable. My spicy tuna bowl was great. I didn't like that the tuna had... More

Relatively large well appointed chain restaurant. Staff very friendly and competent. Shared an appetizer of Lollipop lamb chops with my wife which were surprisingly good. This being a fish restaurant, we both ordered trout. I ordered mine "wood grilled" and she ordered the Parmesan nut encrusted one. We both ordered coleslaw and a vegetable. Both the trouts were cooked dry... More

Hello Ira, I am sorry to hear this feedback about your dinner last night. Our coleslaw is a non-traditional Asian style with hints of citrus and ginger...understandably it may not fit everyone's taste so we would always be happy to bring you another side of your choosing; both of your trouts being dry and not flavorful is definitely upsetting to...
