Being a local resident for 25 years , I can be fair and state my ideas . Lunch is not the best time to visit . Brunch on Sundays should be forgotten . Happy Hour and small plates at the bar , added to evening dining , is to be recommended. A small separate room , adjoining , lends itself... More

Frankie Bones is a classy escape from the beach scene for a delicious dinner or for a lovely drink at their bar. There is s small room for a larger group, which can be reserved in advance. Expect to pay for around 15-30 for the generous entree. The s'more or brownie deserts are fantastic but hard to save room for... More

Seems to be a local favorite, and is a must-visit every time I visit HHI. My favorite thing about here is the atmosphere. Its quiet and private, but lively all at the same time.

As a Local, I avoid the over priced 'tourist trap' eateries that infest the south end. UGH! Nothing but a bunch of coconut oil-covered Ohioans and their twelve screaming kids! No thanks! When we want fantastic food and superb service, there is NO other choice but Frankie Bones! When friends come to town THIS is where they will get taken!... More

Four in our party and each dish was delicious! Calamari appetizer was so good and the seafood stuffed mushrooms were the best I've ever had. Lobster Mac and cheese so creamy with big chunks of lobster. Manager very gracious and eager to talk about his restaurant and our food choices. Great ending to a perfect day.

Nicole was our server and did a fabulous job. Recommended the perfect wine to complement our meal & took care of us like we were her only table. We eat here every time we visit HHI & are never disappointed. The food is always A+!

It was a family celebration as our granddaughter turned 17. She is a vegan but the rest of us are meat, and seafood folks. Our experience was fabulous. The menu has something for everyone and we were delighted with attention and great service all evening by Keith.. None of us got the same thing and all 11 dishes exceeded exceptions!

This is not a typical HHI restaurant, the theme is closer to old school New York with Sinatra pictures on the walls etc.... The atmosphere was a good change of pace and the food was very good. I had the Pork Schnitzel which was excellent and others in our party gave compliments to the Lobster Mac and Cheese and the... More

From the pork ribs to the pasta to the catch of the day.... Nothing disappoints! High top tables and bar seats are First Come first serve.... Sometimes the regular wait can be a bit long. However, sometime you just need to wait and be patient when you are eating great food! Enjoy! The veal stuffed ravioli was out Of this... More
