Went for dinner while staying at a hotel near by. Good food, great service, quiet atmosphere. Even though this is a chain, we really enjoyed our visit and thought the food was great.

First, started at the bar. Was waiting for my guest to arrive. I sat down and was immediately greeted and offered two different drinks that are loved by all. I ordered the Fresh Watermelon Martini. Then I asked what should I order for an appetizer, and I ordered an appetizer called Bang Bang shrimp, also referred by the bartender. This... More

The food was excellent an abundant when the Bonefish first opened. These days they ration control everything even the sides , which I cannot understand how you need to control your mashed potatoes servings. The prices have gotten higher and higher , the food smaller and smaller .

I've been to many locations many times. Consistent high quality service and food. Highly recommend. This time I went in late evening and had dinner at the bar. Besides the fact that the bartender was cute and friendly, the food was great and the atmosphere was relaxing.

Mom & I had a very nice dinner here a few weeks ago with after spending the day together. I had a summer special drink that was a muddled watermelon martini or sorts. It was absolutely fabulous. My mom really liked her glass of red sangria as well. I had a rainbow trout with crab meat and asparagus sauce. It... More

Excellent as always. No waiting to sit at the hi-tops. Bang bang shrimp is $6 on Wednesday, delicious. Salmon with mango salsa great, too. Husband orders his usual Kobe burger & enjoyed it. You have to go if you've never been.

The service is good. We were seated quickly and our beverage order was taken right away. My red wine was served chilled ... not happy about that. The corn crab chowder was pretty good and my Caesar salad was okay. My husband ordered a chicken dish that sounded delicious but he said it was not very flavorful. My tuna steak... More

This chain operates their locations in many respects like an independent bistro. It offers a diverse menu with generous portions along with an excellent drink menu. The decor is nice and although a little loud at times, but not obnoxiously so. Service is always excellent.

Have been a fan of bonefish grill since we went to the first one many years ago in Florida. The East Brunswick Bonefish is consistently good and what makes it really special is the staff who are much more than professional. They take an opportunity to chat about the menu, speciality items, and care about you personally.

We came here after a show at Rutgers. It's one of the few places open after regular dinner hours. Pretty much a college hangout, so not really cut out for us middle-agers. But, if you can make your way past the bar to the restaurant upstairs, food is pretty decent. Not a bad choice and you can deal with the... More
