“Outstanding for a chain”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have eaten here twice. The place is a chain, and they turn tables well. I have to say the food and the service is terrific for such a place. Fried calamari (one of my favorite dishes and I'm very picky about it) is awesome. The grilled fish entrees also very very good. Service is both friendly and efficient. The wait for a table can scare you, but they generally seat you in half the time they say it will take. Wine list is nice and very reasonable. We'll be back.

“Very good...for a chain”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Was on vacation in Chicago area. Had eaten at Bonefish in Florida. There are many better fish places around, but for a chain restaurant, Bonefish is quite good. Creative menu, very good service, pleasant environment, good prices. Too bad there are no Bonefish locations anywhere near I live.

“Good Seafood”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

For being a "chain" this place has excellent food. Their crab cakes and bang bang shrimp are a must when dining here. There are a lot of fish options and daily specials but they also have burgers. The flavors are always good and really compliment the dish. The wait staff is very attentive even when the restaurant is packed. Reservations are suggested on weekends.

“Fantastic Experience!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Visiting the area to drop our son off at Northwestern. Rainy yucky night and didn't want to venture to far away. Decided on the Bonefish having never eaten at one. Wow! What a great place. Nice energetic, but not too loud atmosphere. Really knowledgable and very friendly server Cynthia was terrific. The food absolutely delicious. Started with the bang bang shrimp which was a really great and plentiful portion. The side salad were very good as well. I had a swordfish and pumpkin ravioli special for $19.99 that was unusual and perfectly prepared. My spouse had the pad thai with shrimp and loved it, huge portion. The meal is served with warm bread and a wonderful olive oil based dipping sauce. $5 drink special all day for a rum punch was very nice way to unwind after our hectic day. This is truly an excellent restaurant and the Manager thought they'd be opening on in my hometown hopefully soon! Will be returning frequently to visit son at school so lucky me I'll get to return here as well! Looking forward to it.
