I notice some mixed reviews of this place for dinner but the lunch we had was great and very reasonably priced. Burgers were very tasty as were the crab cakes. Recommended for lunch.

I took my nine grandkids here in the Fishbones in a strip mall (second floor) not the Raw Bar, and they fed mightily. She Crab Soup, Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Clams, they eat every bit of the food. I had the coconut shrimp and it was the best I have ever eaten. Soft succulent shrimp, cooked just right, and the... More

My husband and I broke off from the rest of the family for our last night in town and came here for dinner. I'm really bummed by the negative reviews, because we had a really great experience. Our waitress Ashley W., was really attentive and kind. She helped me decide on Tuna Avocado, which was delicious and cooked to perfection.... More

The bucket of bait was great with fresh steamed seafood. The shrimp was excellent, with Old Bay seasoning. I got the crab cake dinner, which was coated and fried (not what I was expecting). The crab meat was good, though.

Food from the limited menu was great! Loooong wait even though tables were open. Super nice bar staff made us comfortable. No air , folks. Too hot to eat! I took mine back to the hotel.

$6 for kraft mac & cheese off kids menu. Shrimp and grits was gross. Grits were shaped in triangles and then fried, but menu made no mention of this. Waitress was not friendly at all..she was in a rush and couldn't give us the time of day. Had to go to bar for drinking straws. Had to wave down waitress... More

While the waitress was nice and patient and service prompt, the menu is not very appetizing and not a lot to select from. Doubt I would return. Did enjoy the décor.
