This was my first time going to this restaurant. For the price of the food, I expected much more. The bang bang shrimp was delicious. I ordered the steak and crab cake dinner. The steak was overcooked and the crab cake was very small. The waiter had a knew one made for me but when it came it was so... More

I am questioning myself why we went there, again. (not referring to this particular location but as a chain of restaurants). After very mediocre food at the Richmond location, we vowed to not go back. I don't know what we were thinking. Maybe we were just hoping- hoping that this one time would be different. We had a friend visit... More

Shared an outstanding dinner with friends for a birthday. Service was outstanding and the meal was also terrific. Regardless of the city the Bonefish Grill continues to work its magic and perform at a high-level. Well prepared and presented and they always go the extra mile. Would highly recommend.

This place is a gem in the ocean of touristy dives!!! The menu is packed with some great choices of seafood that do NOT involve a fryer, thankfully! The service is great and the atmosphere is nice and lively (something that is usually over done in Williamsburg or not existent).

We arrived at the opening at 4 p.m and had the place to ourselves for a little while.The place was soon filling with people.The food was so good and the service excellent. The seafood bisque and key lime pie were exquisite.
