I have been to Bonefish Grills in other cities, and found this one to be as good or better than the others I have visited. The menu had a lot of seafood choices, in both small plates and entrees. My dining partner loves their shrimp appetizer so much she ordered one plate for us to share and another for her... More

The fish is delicious, I recommend the Norwegian Salmon or the haddock if it's available. Very friendly and helpful waitstaff. The proprietor, Joel came by to check on things, great guy. Restaurant was clean, nice atmosphere.

Our Server tried her best to help make our experience good but there was only so much she could do with the horrendous host and manager screwing off all the time.

We started Birthday celebration at the bar on this day of running of the Kentucky Derby. The bar was that busy. But my order of a Scotch and other guest’s order of Bourbon took most of the time before my pager went berserk. We ordered Bang Bang Shrimp as a starter and it was not shabby – it gets 5... More

Nice newer location. Every employee I encountered was nice and seemed to do a good job. My problem was my meal, fish & chips. Mrs. Pauls would issue a recall for this meal. The fries were convenience store snack bar quality and the tempura on the mystery fish overwhelmed the pieces of filet. I ordered a side of cole slaw... More

My mother and I had dinner here after a long day...We sat in a booth in the bar-very comfortable, relaxing and great service. The menu of seafood is extensive. Both of our meals were generous and well prepared. One of our favorite things was the tasty olive oil and pesto served with fresh bread. This is a great restaurant choice... More

I ate here two nights recently. The first night was a fancy group dinner and the service was terrific, the food was very good, and the restaurant was comfortable. The second night I came for a lighter dinner at the bar and that also was very good, with great service. I would go back.

Visit Des Moines often for business. Bonefish is always good. Food is good; seafood is fresh, especially try the bang bang shrimp. I am sure lots of calories but definitely worth it. Service is good and atmosphere is warm.

What a great restaurant. Staff was courteous, funny, not too overly attentive. Huge platter of mussels. Good size servings of sides. Desserts are to die for. And the smoothest, tastiest, cheesecake for the birthday girl. Very, very good.

The staff really makes this place. The food is very good, but not what I would consider fantastic. If you're in the area and in the mood for seafood, it's a good pick.

Thank Cultured2013
