This is my mothers FAVORITE place to eat. So much so that im almost getting sick of it, but she buys so I fly. Always good service, and very friendly staff. Wednesday nights are wayyyyy to crowded due to Bang Bang shrimp special. Tonight I completely forgot about the special and went. Dinner took almost an hour to het to us. We knew they were busy, so we were patient. Our server realized how long we were waiting and sent Tara the manager over to speak to us. She was very nice, comped some things off the bill and went way above and beyond. Nathan was wonderfull also. He took great care of us although busy, he was on the ball. The people next to us ran him like crazy and he took it all with a polite smile.
Great job! Thanks for being so nice!

We really loved the food . We had tha Bang Bang Shrimp, homemade chips and Ahi Tuna. Our bartender Jackie was outstanding. If you are in the area, make this a stop.

All the working stiff leave their offices at the same time and seem to arrive at the Bonefish Grill just in time to make the ambiance feel like a rat race. It was dark enough to make it difficult to find our friends who were already seated and after stepping on a few toes and irritating a few old ladies, we finally ended up at the right table with the people we originally intended to see. The Guiness was overpriced but the waitress was great, she had a sense of humor and kept the service going at a good pace, The kids delivering the food to the table had obviously not heard what she had said and it took a while to get the right food in front of the right people. The food was tasty and well portioned but the number of calories that rode upon it was enough to make weight watchers scream in horror...Only if they could be heard above the general rumbling noise that reigned king in the restaurant. You know, the kind of noise that makes you lose everything that is said further than two feet from your face...Regardless of the little inconveniences of life and the same ones that I have accustomed myself to suffer when going to any of the Bonefish Grills in my area, the food was good, the service great, the decor adequate and even the rain stopped long enough to allow us to make it back to our cars in the crowded parking lot without getting drenched. Overall a good evening with friends and expensive enough not to do it too often. Until next year...

This Bonefish Grill is nice place, very clean, with a pleasant staff. It's usually quite busy, so waiting to be seated is kind of the norm. Food is very good, especially the Bang Bang Shrimp. There is a full service bar, with a number of TV's. Be prepared to spend a bit of money. It's not overly priced, but it will cost you to wine and dine. We will definitely return to this establishment.

It all started with Bang Bang shrimp at the Sarasota Bonefish on vacation in Oct. 2011. Fell so in love with it that found the secret recipe when I got home...not so good...so I searched out Bonefish in Wisconsin and was happy to find one 80 miles away from home...good but not Florida. So, we HAD TO MOVE TO FLORIDA 2012! First stop, Bonefish Grill in Venice, first order of business - Bang Bang shrimp! YUMMY!!

Also great: Coconut shrimp: huge and delicious. Corn Crab Chowder: creamy yummy. Bang Bang Tacos: no-brainer delicious!

Service excellent, atmosphere relaxed and cozy.

I'm gettin' hungry just thinking about it. May have to go there tonight!
