This was a new experience in our hometown. We shared peel your own shrimp and a couple of sides. Everything was good and the service was attentive. The restaurant has both indoor and outside dining. We also were happy to see that this establishment was participating in a local effort to fight hunger.

This place should be featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The absolute best wings around with a spicy lemongrass dipping sauce. That have different fish specials every day and a feature taco every day. Great beer selection too.

I never tire of the food or atmosphere of Fishbones. It's truly a local hang. The specials are always amazing.

I have not actually been there to eat. We have take-out from there on occasion at work. What I have had is very good. i most always have the Fried Bologna sandwich with Wasabi slaw, which is most delicious and a comfort food. I tried the Tex-Mex Turkey sandwich, which was very good, but I was expecting more flavor. The... More

The fresh peel n eat shrimp are incredible, variety of wine and beer, and plenty of options on the menu. I had the pork tenderloin quesadilla, which was delicious, and my... More

Decided to stop by on a Friday night during date night to check the place out and it was absolutely delicious!!! Everything was fresh and full of flavor! We started out with the sweet chili wings(I like to try everyone's wings), I normally don't like breaded wings but these were very flavorful and delightfully tasteful! I ordered the jumbo shrimp...

It is a small local venue that has great food and service. I had the oysters along with black and green beans and wasabi coleslaw. This was an excellent dinner. The beer selection is pretty good but a little limited on the draft menu. It is a small neighborhood style Bar and Grill. I recommend it if this is the... More

They do have specials which... More

the fried catfish and fried oysters & shrimp were wonderful. Don't miss their shrimp & grits. The most delicious other than what I make myself.
