“First rate food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2011

Our Christmas Eve visit did not start well. We made a reservation several days in advance, and the restaurant called the day of the reservation to verify the reservation. However, upon our timely arrival the table for our party of nine was not ready as if we were unexpected, and we had a short wait with no explanation. Then, the high chair was unusable because it lacked one of the safety straps. A manager was working the room and I mentioned that our table was not ready, as a matter of information for him. He immediately stated that he would be overseeing our service and he later comped four desserts for us to try: creme brulee, a magnificent brownie and two Florida key lime pies. This is the mark of a good manager. We were not expecting anything and were pleasantly surprised and pleased.

The food certainly did not disappoint, from the signature spicy "Bang Bang" shrimp appetizer to the grilled tilapia with chimichurri sauce (one of four sauce choices) to the lump crabcake that was clearly "lumpy" to the salmon. The vegetable side of the day was spaghetti squash with savory seasoning that apparently included a hint of brown sugar. The meal included great yeast bread with pesto dipping sauce. The menu is short but has something for everyone and allows the chefs to concentrate their efforts. Next time I will try the Chesapeake Bay oysters fried in cornmeal and garnished with pickle. There was a sizeable wine list but we do not drink wine. Having tried a number of restaurants in the area, it's easy to see why this one is #1.

“Had a bang bang of a meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

Had to go close to this restaurant to pick up something for our son. Wednesday is bang bang shrimp night. Bang Bang shrimp is $5. It's awesome and can almost eat that as the meal. It is possible to go sit in the bar area, have the shrimp and a glass of wine and stop there.
My husband and I ate a meal. I had the sea bass, which you can get with many sauces. I had mine blackened with mango salsa and enjoyed it very much. I brought 1/2 of it home since I'd had an order of the bang bang shrimp.
My husband had the ahi tuna, which he enjoyed.
We will definitely go back.

“Bang Bang Shrimp - appetizer not to miss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Bonefish grill offers very fresh and tasty food, their bang bang shrimp is amazing. We have eaten in this restaurant several times and always been happy with the quality of food, service is ok depending on waitress. I wish they would be open also for lunch instead opening at 4pm.

“Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2011

We visit this restaurant at least once every two months. We love their martini with the blue cheese stuffed olives. We have never had a bad meal or service. You just need to go early or late to avoid the long wait times during peak dinner time.

“Good Enough to Go Twice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

We were pleased to find this Bonefish Grill while we stayed in Glen Burnie to be close to Baltimore without paying Baltimore prices. We'd visited two other Bonefish restaurants, so we were not surprised by the set-up and the menu. The choices are good and the fish well prepared. The Dinner for Two for 19.95 each was tempting but we chose otherwise. Thumbs up for the Singapore Calamari and the Bang Bang Shrimp! My bacon-wrapped scallops were very sweet and next time perhaps I'll choose the grilled scallops and shrimp. My spouse's crab cakes were excellent. A good wine list with choices for both bottles and by the glass. We returned the second night we stayed and were not disappointed!
