Bonefish Grill is a very reliable and very good middle range restaurant. They offer good value and outstanding service. And their happy hour is well worth the effort to arrive and be seated before 6:30 pm. The offer discounts on wine, beer and well drinks. For example, I usually order an Absolute Vodka Martini for which they charge only $4.90! Are you impressed?
I have dined in several Bonefish locations in both Naples and Bonita Springs, Florida as well as East Brunswick, New Jersey and Langhorne, Pennsylvania. This spot in Naples is very busy in season but they always seem to be able to provide quality service with a smile. Their servers are well trained, know the menu, can offer options and yet despite being very busy never make you feel rushed.
Everyone loves the Bang Bang Shrimp - it's one of the best appetizers you will find anywhere. Tip: they drop the price to $6 every Wednesday. I also love their mussels - the appetizer portion is so large I order it as an entrée. They also do a really good Caesar salad (served on a cold plate!). I almost forgot to mention their bread, served warm with a wonderful olive oil infused with pesto. Mmmm . . .
I like their grilled fish, especially the grouper and mahi mahi which I get blackened with the mango salsa. My favorite side is the green beans. I would also recommend the fish and chips and the tilapia sandwich (again blackened) with chips. I deliberately stay away from the fancy dishes with heavy sauces. My experience is that Bonefish is at its best when they keep it simple - grilled, blackened, etc., with either salsa, pan Asian or lemon butter sauce.
So, if you arrive before 6:30 pm, have a drink from the discount list, have the bang bang shrimp and order some grilled fish with one of their special sauces, you will not be disappointed.
