BONEFISH GRILL REVIEW
This is a sponsored post – I received a gift card to eat at Bonefish Grill for my honest review and opinion, which I have given. I will only endorse products and services that I feel will benefit my readers or that they will enjoy.
I live in a beach town….a town that is full of seafood restaurants. I have eaten my fair share of seafood from some of the best restaurants with chefs that know how to prepare fresh seafood. Therefore I did not think that Bonefish Grill would be any different than the others. Boy, was I wrong!
From the moment my husband and I stepped into the restaurant, I knew there was a different “feel” to this restaurant compared to most of the other restaurants in our area. The atmosphere was casual, yet trendy with a fancy feel to it. You were not out of place if you were dressed casually, however you were not out of place if you were dressed up a bit either. The place was packed so I knew it must be good – in fact we had to wait for 15 minutes and it was only 6:00 p.m.
Our waitress seated us and told us about the specials of the evening. We were there on a Tuesday evening, so she told us about Tuesday Tales of Lobster night where you can get a lobster tale for only $8.99!!! They also have several items featuring lobster on Tuesdays like a Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Lobster Roll Sliders!!
After taking our drink order, our waitress returned with our drinks and some bread with dipping oil…..this is my weakness!! My, it was good!
My husband and I decided to try out an appetizer to get us started. We settled on the BFG Imperial Dip. We enjoyed it very much! It is a creamy dip with crabmeat, shrimp and scallops served with crispy flatbread crackers.
The menu was full of wonderful, tasty sounding options! It was hard to decide what to get! I am a southern girl at heart and I decided on something very simple – the fish and chips. I have eaten this many times at many different restaurants and sometimes I am very disappointed in the quality of the fish. But I certainly was not disappointed at BFG! This fish tasted very fresh and it was cooked to perfection! The tartar sauce was homemade and when I asked for cocktail sauce, you could definitely tell it was homemade also. It had some kick to it!! The price for the Fish and Chips was right too – only $12.99! I will definitely return to enjoy this dish again!
My husband decided to stick with the theme of the night and ordered Steak topped with Lobster Thermidor. This was a 6 oz wood-grilled sirloin, sweet lobster, lump crab, a velvety sauce with a hint of sherry + garlic whipped potatoes and steamed broccoli. He enjoyed every bite of it and was surprised that this dish only cost $16.99!
Both of our meals were served with a beautiful, fresh salad and the bread, as mentioned above. We were able to get another order of the bread at no extra charge.
Before going to Bonefish Grill, I had asked several of my friends if they had eaten there and what they liked to order. Here is what some of them had to say:
Every single one of them said “I love the Bang, Bang Shrimp. It is delicious!!”
My friend, Alicia said that she loves the Grilled Salmon.
My friend, Kevin enjoys the Mussels.
My friend, Denise says that she loves the Calamari with Asian Dipping Sauce.
And my friend, Debi had a lot to say! “One of our favorite places ever! Of course the Bang Bang Shrimp (portions have been cut in about 1/2 over the past 2 yrs, and the price has gone up, but that doesn’t stop us!). Grace LOVES their Tilapia with Pan~Asian sauce. It is the only place she will eat fish. Bill always gets their specials, they’re amazing. (Sea Bass is one to never pass up!!!!) I have one of the specials usually. I would like to see a baked potato added to the menu and maybe even some hushpuppies!”
My husband and I will definitely be going back to Bonefish Grill. It was still a little chilly out when we went, however the weather will be getting warmer and we will sit outside on the patio. I look forward to that and to trying out some other tasty dishes!
I give Bonefish Grill 2 thumbs up for atmosphere, variety, freshness, service and price! I felt that Bonefish Grill had a lot more to offer than your typical seafood restaurant and was a nice change of pace. It made for a great date night with my hubby!

I live in a beach area (right off of Cape Cod), but I don’t think we have this restaurant up here in Massachusetts. Your food looks awesome, though, so if I am ever in an area with a Bonefish Grill, I will have to make sure to stop 🙂
Liz Mays says
I haven’t been to the one here in town yet and now I see I need to do that. The bread alone would make me happy!
lisa jones says
I Love Bonefish Grill There Food Is Delicious & Such A Great Variety!
Mandy@ TheHouseholdHero.com says
My husband and I used to eat at Bonefish alot when it was near our house. I loved their greek salad!
Lobster roll sliders sound fun. But I would definitely go for the fish and chips – that is my favorite!
Lois Alter Mark says
Ooh, I wish we had one of those here. It looks amazing! I’m already drooling thinking about Tuesday Tales of Lobster. Lobster grilled cheese and lobster sliders? YUM!
Yum! We haven’t been there in forever!
Hearing about them for the first time, and I’m curious to try them out!
I believe we have a Bonefish Grill near us- and I need to bring my hubby there. He LOVES Seafood
Lexie Lane says
I completely agree with how great the food is here. This is one of our favorite places to eat! So a big recommendation from us too! And yes, the sea bass is great!
Stacey @ Glamour-Zine says
We have one of these near us. Bonefish Grill is a great time with awesome food!
Jessica Beal Harlow says
I’m really wishing we had a Bonefish Grill in Maine. The Bang Bang Shrimp is probably what I’d order! Next time I spot one in my travels, I’ll be curious to check it out!
Jennifer Brazil says
This looks really good! We have one nearby that we’ll have to visit soon!
I totally love Bonefish! Their dipping sauce and Bang Bang Shrimp. I love their sisters restaurant even more Carrabba’s
This was actually our very first date at a restaurant. I wonder what we would eat now. Last time we got shellfish but we don’t eat that anymore. I’m sure they have a tasty fish that we would love on the menu as well 🙂
There is a Bonefish Grill near us, but I have never eaten there! The food looks really tasty.
Jen Temcio @dapperhouse says
I really want to try this place – especially the dip! I like how it is so open inside with the tall tables.
Mama to 5 Blessings says
I have never eaten there before, we have them local to us – I will have to try it out!
Amy Desrosiers says
This looks like such a beautiful place! Just the outside is so gorgeous, never mind the food!
Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas says
My husband and I hit a Bonefish Grill once while traveling and the menu was fantastic!
Debbie Denny says
I have heard so much about Bonefish Grill. I wish there was one near me. I will for sure check them out when I am traveling
Janeane Davis says
I hav never been to this place. I like blog posts like this one because they give me ideas about places to visit and places to eat while I am visiting.
Danielle @ We Have It All says
That place looks cute! The food looks yummy too!
Elisebet F says
Glad you had a great time! Bonefish has always been one of my favorite restaurants.
We just had one open up near us, and i was not as impressed with the food. The atmosphere is great..
cindy b says
I wish they had one in my town! it looks amazing!
Kisa Johnson says
Your food looks delicious! We don’t have a ton of seafood places in town (probably because we’re landlocked aside from a lake, being in Northern Idaho and all does that!) but I will admit I love certain seafoods!
Lobster tail for 8.99 is a good good deal. In my neck of the woods “Arizona” to be exact, its not fresh, its frozen shipped and we pay $19.99 for Lobster tail. I love seafood so living the coast would be so great when it comes to dinning out. Looks like an awesome restaurant.
Terin Garrett says
Can you believe I’ve actually never been to a Bonefish Grill?! I have to try it soon! 🙂
This looks awesome.
We love Bonefish! My kids especially love the fact that the tables are covered in paper; they can draw away! Really good food as well.
Claudia Krusch says
We have a Bonefish Grill near us, but I’ve never been there! You’ve inspired me to try it!
Mistee Dawn says
Wish I had one of the nearby, looks fantastic.
I’ve never been to one, but it sounds like a great place to go after your review!
Petro Neagu says
I’m amazed how cheap their meals are and they look really delicious. I am usually reluctant to use restaurants as I always had bad experiences but this one sounds perfect for us.
We love BoneFish Grill. My son loves the crab cakes and the Bang Bang shrimp. You are definitely right the entire restaurant has a very upscale feel. I love their desserts too. Yum!!!
