“Nice outdoor patio, food just ok”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We thought we couldn't go wrong going to a seafood restaurant in Florida but this restaurant was definitely disappointing. The prices were high for the quantity and quality of food you get. The salmon was good but the crab cake on the top was so salty I could barely eat it. My husband also had the crab cakes which came with a bean and corn salad which he didn't care for. We weren't offered any other options if you didn't like that type of salad. The best part of our dinner was sitting on the patio which overlooks the water.

“Use to be a Favorite!”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Went there for dinner last Friday and was not impressed. Nothing wrong just the value has dropped. Many things on the menu $20 and up but the experience did not live up to the price. Little things like mis-matched silverware to cocktail sauce in little plastic throwaways. The food was ok but the portions small even the salad was tiny.
IMO they need to upgrade some of the quality or adjust the price and become another outdoor venue with average food.

“Some excellent seafood, but some not so good...”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Ate at Bonefish Willy's tonite (have eaten there quite a few times over the years), and while my seabass was excellent (!!), my daughter's salmon oscar was <way> overcooked, and my other daughter's tuna was VERY TOUGH!!...when i spoke to the server, she in turn contacted the manager, with the response "we can take off 1/3 of the price of the salmon meal"...I then spoke to the manager about it; she stated that my daughter had eaten the rest of the meal, the chef had to cook it, the dishes needed to be cleaned, etc., etc....I was pretty shocked at that response..."really??"...after some more back and forth discussion, the manager offered to NOT charge us for the salmon oscar....wow....pretty shocking customer service there!!! be prepared for that type of response if your meal is not as good as expected....

“My favorite”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

One of my favorite local places, but too many people found out about it. It seems many just go to sit on the deck and drink and eat an appetizer. Several items on the menu are very good.

“Nice local spot”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

So crowded, huge line. Thankfully we made a reservation (and still waited 30 minutes). Place is kind of dirty, food is mediocre but obviously people love it or it wouldn't be packed. Steel drum player was great.
