I am usually not one to visit corporate/franchise restaurants, but my exception is Bonefish Grill. On the many occasions that I have eaten there, I have always had good service, and the food has always been consistant and spot on. I even went to Bonefish on New Years Eve, the worst night of the year to go out to eat, and it was fine.
We normally start with the Bang Bang shrimp, a signature Bone fish dish, and the bacon wrapped Scallops with the mango salsa and chutney. The Bang Bang Shrimp are always sized right for an appetizer and the play on the crispy fried shrimp and the spicy creamy sauce is always been a winner. I love scallops and the salty crisp bacon playing off the sweet taste of the scallops and salsa has been a favorite of mine for a long time. It has even gotten the wife to eat scallops, which she normally doesn't eat. Last night instead of the scallops I tried the coconut crusted shrimp. This dish has popped up at many restaurants but I still think the texture and flavors are a winner and Bone fish does a great job on this one as well.
Living on the Gulf of Mexico I normally shy away from seafood that doesn't swim in the Gulf, but Bonefish offers a variety of fish that I trust to be the freshest available here. Talapia, Salmon, Wolf fish, and Rainbow Trout are offered on the menu as well as shrimp and scallops. I have never tried the steak, but since Bonefish is under the same umbrella as Outback Steak House, I believe it would be good. Last night my wife tried Lily's chicken a grilled chicken breast topped with spinach and goat cheese. We both enjoyed this dish.
We ate at the bar last night and was served by the bar tender and a kitchen staff. If you love fresh seafood, great service, Bone fish is a good choice.
I give Bonefish 4 stars.
