    I like it but DH doesn't. He prefers fried seafood and that wasn't offered. I had salmon with mango chutney poured over it. I found the atmosphere to be laid back and liked it. Again, DH didn't, sooooo...we haven't been back. :(

    I love their Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer, the Wagyu Beef & Ginger Dumplings appetizer and the lobster bisque soup.

    I usually get one of the specials with the crab cake appetizer. I love their cocktails, too - the hypnotic martini and winter white cosmo are my favorites.

    Ugghhh we gave it two tries u here in New York and was HORRIBLE both times.

    I am sure it changes by franchise location, but the one up here is so bad.

    Our family and friends won't set foot in it.

    Yes, after thinking more about it's not really that good.

    I've only been once a few years ago and thought it had very small portions at an expensive rate. The food was good. Everyone in the place was ordering appetizers and then I realized why. That said, my spouse is taking me there tomorrow night for my birthday. We won a $50.00 gift certificate so we will be using that for partial payment. I may change my opinion.

    I'm not a big fan of Bonefish Grill.

    I DO like their Bang Bang Shrimp.

    They are known for their sauces. They have many, various types of sauces, chutneys, butters, salsas.

    I have yet to find any of these 'sauces' that really compliment the meat or fish. They seem to overpower them. Even if they don't overpower, they do mask the taste of the fish.

    When you request no sauces or sauce on the side you may very well find out that you aren't eating the best fish in the world.

    I also find their portions very small, (though maybe not if covered with a few ounces of chutney, lol.)

    I never voluntarily go there, but if I end up there it's Bang Bang Shrimp and Bud Light for me.

    The Bonefish Grill is one of my favorite chain restaurants.

    I have never had a bad meal there. My favorite fish is Salmon, so that is what I ususually order. We always order the Bang Bang shrimp as an appetizer. The Macadamia Nut Brownie is a great dessert. Yum!

    Would you like shrimp poppers, pizza shooters, or extreme fajitas with that?

    We went Friday night, I enjoyed the salmon with lemon butter. I also had the goat cheese and beet salad, that was really yummy.

    My husband had grouper with crab on top and some kind of lime sauce on it. That was good too.

    Will go back for sure.

    My boss gave me $100 in gift cards for BFG for Christmas, so we went last night. I had the grilled shrimp and scallops -- excellent! DH had some kind of fish with shrimp and scallops, and loved that. The corn and crab chowder was excellent as well. We still have $50 left -- looking forward to using it!

    My fav thing to order there is the winter white cosmo...that's it...nothing else.

    Im allergic to shell-fish and really don't care for regular fish either.

    Sometimes, I'll order a side of green beans ( which are delicious) and mashed potatoes.

    Other than that just the winter white !
