Bonefish Grill is an upscale chain restaurant with high end food and clientele. They are known for their happy hour specials and of course their famous Bang Bang Shrimp. This zesty and flavorful appetizer normally runs between $9-11, depending on the location; but on Wednesdays, the dish is reduced to $6. What a bargain!
The ambiance at Bonefish is both elegant and semi-formal, with their professional wait staff and white tablecloths. Bonefish has a lovely bar that produces a lively atmosphere and hand-crafted cocktails. My Vero Beach location offers both indoor and outdoor seating.
There are many entrees that I like and would recommend, such as Lily’s Chicken (artichoke hearts and goat cheese) or the melt-in-your-mouth Ahi Tuna Steak. On this particular visit, I went to Bonefish with my brother, Jay, and his daughter, Mallory, and her friend, Grace. It was their first time dining at Bonefish and I thought that they would enjoy this restaurant since they are shrimp lovers.
We began with two orders of the Bang Bang Shrimp, which was dotting every other table top that we could see. For dinner, our selections were the Chicken Teriyaki Bowl, Lily’s Chicken, Wedge Salad, and I had a big bowl of Corn Chowder plus Lump Crab. Note: Certain side items on the menu have an upcharge to them. For those who are seafood lovers, Bonefish has 6 special sauces or ways to jazz up their large selection of fish, including Atlantic Salmon, Sea Scallops, Chilean Sea Bass.
The food at Bonefish is consistently good and though I have a tinge of guilt going to chain restaurants, this one gets my vote of approval for being worth it. I am always too full to try a dessert, but the Doughnuts with Sea Salt Caramel sound fantastic.
Bonefish is great for lunch or dinner, a celebration, or drinks with friends. They also feature a special weekend Endless Bubbles Brunch serving Blackberry Sangria, Mimosas, or Bellinis. I will definitely have to try one of their four varieties of Eggs Benedict. Bonefish offers a kicking happy hour, so be sure to ask about their drink and appetizer specials. If you want, call ahead or reserve your table online.
