Reviewed November 7, 2010

Went 2 times during our 4 days in Melbourne Beach. Excellent food and service. Dined outside looking at the river and the the atmosphere was great!

“Great atmosphere - so/so food”
Reviewed October 24, 2010

Sometimes the food is okay, but not worth the price. Great atmosphere, and hit or miss on the food.

“Pretty place; everything else is lousy”
Reviewed October 14, 2010

We've eaten there a few times, and are now officially done wasting out money. Here's what all our trips had in common...

- An unattentive, absent wait staff
- Food that sounded better than it tasted; moslty filler; little protein.
- Slow drink service and slow kitchen
- overpriced food that could be made better at home

Last time we were there, I complained enough about it taking 3 hours for our dinner service to be completed that we were give a business card with "free appetizer" written on the back. Disgusted and knowing I'll never return, I threw it away.

“Try the grouper”
Reviewed July 20, 2010

I went to Bonefish Willy's on the recommendations of a hotel employee, and I'll admit I was reluctant because of familiarity with a chain of the same name. I was very pleased to find this a very good place. The seafood gumbo was a bit too meaty but the grouper bruschetta was out of this world. Good casual atmosphere outside on the deck.

“yuk”
Reviewed May 22, 2010

The view is awesome but the food...not so much. We ordered Conch fritters as an appetizer. Had I brought along my microscope, it could have been possible to see some actual Conch. They were not even cooked all the way through. Raw fritter batter - gag. We had salad which was ok. Then on to the horrible stuffed Sole. The nasty stuffing was glopped on top and then the whole thing was seared on a flat grill. Crispy bunt on the outside, raw and soggy on the inside. So-called Chef Greg appears to not be a chef at all. Come on, you guys can do much better than that!
