It's a chain, it's typical for this chain, the food is good, the service is good, no surprises. A nice family dinner or a quiet night out would work equally well here.

Our server did an excellent job, recently promoted to the front of house, he was well spoken, informative, new his menu and made all the right moves.
Biggest disappointment's was they were not serving the strawberry martini because strawberries were out of season???? Bonny will get on this.
And the Bang Bangs were not as crispy as they usually are but tasty. The crabcakes excellent, and the Chilean seabass excellent as always. Creme brulee the same.

Recently we ate at the popular Bonefish Grill in Gainesville Virginia. We had eaten at one in Kentucky and loved the quiet upscale atmosphere as well as the food! Not so at this one and even on a Thursday night it was crowded and greeted us loudly as we steped in the bar/entrance. We were early so we had to wait 25 minutes for our reserved table. There was comfortable outside seating to wait which we opted for since we did not bring our ear plugs, even though the temperature was 90+. We ask for the overhead fan to be turned on but it never was. We should have requested a booth, our mistake, so were eventually seated at a table, which seemed to be in the middle of the hussle bussle path. All the tables were very close together & the place was packed! Our server was very friendly, pleasant and efficiently helped us select our meal. She was great. I had the Asian salmon/crab special and my husband the grouper. Both were very tasty and beautifully presented. The house salad we shared was very good also. Warm crusty bread is not brought automatically, you have to request it. Since it was my birthday the server surprised me with a complimentary fabulous chocolate/rasberry/whip cream creation that I could not refuse! Definitely we will return since the food was great BUT will ask for a booth in the back. Also the man who greets you at the front check in could use some tips on being friendly & welcoming. Maybe he doesn't need to be since it seemed to be a neighborhood/family favorite place anyway!

Went with a coupon for a couples meal, neither of us are big seafood people but this was a fine meal, although it would have been too expensive for us without the coupon. I would equate the quality to around that as with Legal Seafood up in Boston, which would have been more expensive for the same menu.
