“Consistantly Great”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

We go almost weekly for Happy Hour and a meal on the high tops in the bar. We like almost everything on the menu so it gives us lots of choices each week. The servers are always friendly and prompt. We used to go for $5 Bang Bang Shrimp on Wednesday but it's so crowded we now pick another night.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

If you like Bonefish Grill, you will be more than happy here. As with many other chain restaurants, if you like the concept and menu then keep going back and this is how we fell with this location. We have been here several times and no diapointments at all. Great menu, excellent value on drinks, etc.

“Always a Winner for Us”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

We find ourselves in Bonefish Grill about once a week. I simply cannot fault the service, ambience or food.

You can do what they term a "gratuitous call-ahead" and put your name on the wait list before you leave for the restaurant. I believe it does cut down on the wait time so try it if you are able.

The bar area of this restaurant can get very crowded. They also have first-come, first-served tables in the bar which add to the crowd but are nice to have in case you do not want to wait for a table in the main dining room.

The food is just divine. I am probably jinxing myself in saying this but I have yet to have a bad meal at Bonefish. If you have never ordered it, get the Bang Bang Shrimp. It is probably astonishingly fattening but it is so delicious that even my shrimp-hating husband eats it with gusto.

Also worth mentioning is the service. The management must keep their staff very happy because every server we have had is kind, attentive, and seemingly happy to be doing their job.

My only suggestion to the establishment would be to get a better happy hour deal going. Typically at Bonefish patrons get $1 off the drinks during happy hour which is cool but Roy's in Tampa has a better deal going in my opinion.

You will not be disappointed at this Bonefish Grill. It is superb, all around.

“Mixed Bag”
Reviewed March 11, 2011

This used to be one of our favorites. Tried on a busy Saturday night. Chose to eat outside on patio since it was first available. Cocktails and apps were fine. Our group was seated between two groups of chain smokers. Very unappetizing. Told our waiter we were going to a concert and we didn't want to linger. Took one hour between drinks apps and entrees. Entrees were all the same fish served in different styles. One entree was near raw and the others were overdone. They mixed up the sides also, One was so salty it was inedible. Big problem with the kitchen. Waitstaff was fine. This has happened before. Sometimes we get terrific service and the food is good. Other times, not so much.. This will be our last time. There are other restaurants that still appreciate customers.
