Diner Reviews
  • "We had a wonderful meal and great service. Very friendly staff who kept checking on us to be sure we were being taken care of. We could have made a meal from the appetizer list. Drinks were overpriced but the food was great."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "We go to Hilton Head every year and have never eaten at Frankie Bones. Glad we tried it this year! Great food and we loved the ambience. Kids enjoyed their dinners and so did we. I would highly recommend making a reservation during the season."

  • "My wife and I frequent this restaurant when we come to HHI. This time did not dissapoint us the meals were excellent and the service was the same. Make sure you make a reservation as the place gets crowded fast"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "great time, service was a bit slow but place was hopping and food was good. Selection was huge but would have liked a few more healthier options."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We were a party of 6- and somehow got a private room which was nice since we were visiting with some locals we only get to see once a year. The strawberry walnut salad was very good. The ribs were just okay- I usually like a sweeter rib- this had a dry rub and sauce put on after cooking. The sauce was mildly spicy. It was served with a delicious mashed potato scoop that had cheese melted in (twice baked taken out of the shell). The pizza was just okay, nothing special. Key lime pie for dessert was very good."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Frankie Bones never disappoints and this visit was no exception. The food and sevice was out of this world. My wife and I love this place. If you are going to visit HHI this is a must stop for dinner."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We were early diners (5:30pm). The service and food were excellent and we enjoyed the Main Street area of Hilton Head."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Service was excellent. Food was disappointing. Bacon wrapped shrimp was not deveined. Kids pizza inedible. Expected more from reading reviews."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Menu has many excellent items. Staff was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Love everything about this place! So glad we were able to make a reservation for our party of 6. Most places on the island don't take reservations in the summer. We had NO WAIT! The food was EXCELLENT!! We will definately return."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Best spaghetti and meatballs ever and the Lobster Mac & Cheese was incredible!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We've had some very good meals at Frankie Bones, but nothing extraordinary. Most recently, the crab cake appetizer was delicious, but they really need to up their game in the salad dept. Our Caesar salad was just plain boring. Bacon wrapped shrimp was very good, too. Soups are generally spot on. Service can range from attentive to not-quite-enough. We're locals, and - all said - one of the better places to eat on the island."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We go to Frankie Bones frequently and it is always good food and great service. That is why they are always busy. Make your reservation early!!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We've been going to HHI for years and somehow never discovered this place until this visit. By far the best meal we ate all week, and the atmosphere was just right. Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "This restaurant needs work on good quality. It's not a comment when the mashed potatoes are better than the New York strip steak. No flavor in the steak. The cannelloni sauce is bland like from a Prego bottle; not what I expected with three meats described to flavor. Perhaps a lesson in preparing a good meat sauce is in order for the kitchen staff. Too bad this restaurant is way out paced and out performed by it's sister and neighbor Wiseguys. Lots of potential for a great place here but kitchen is lagging now."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Go here every summer at the beach and will continue to come back. Very very good."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Our recent visit to Frankie Bones was probably the worst service ever. Our food orders were not taken properly. One person received the wrong soup and another the wrong size pasta. Our son had to wait 10 minutes for his kids steak entree after our 4 other dinners arrived. No attention to details such as asking for drink refills, cheese for pasta and more bread. We will definitely try other restaurants as it seems a shame to pay $140 for a meal and have poor service! Recommend to friends with the disclaimer that the service is poor."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The combination of good food choices and atmosphere makes this restaurant a great choice."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Food was great! Bananas foster cheesecake was delicious! We will definitely go again."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent, artfully presented, and our server was extremely helpful in explaining the specials as well as providing excellent general service. We have eaten at Frankie Bones several times when visiting Hilton Head over the past few years and have never been disappointed."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a pretty good experience there. Waite staff was attentive - everything came fast - maybe slightly too fast. It was a busy night, but not extremely busy. Two in our party ordered the mahi-mahi special... we were informed after a while that there was only one left. Antipasto appetizers were very good. Food was very good. Nice drink menu."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Outstanding food and service as always! I highly recommend the twice baked potatoe spring rolls and lobster mac n cheese!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The service was terrific with our waitress making great suggestions and anticipating our needs. The food was excellent with many varieties and types to choose from. Everyone was happy with their choices, from excellent prime rib to Italian favorites. This is a great place for families that want to please everyone."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Superb as always! Best seafood and best service on HHI."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We arrived 10 minutes early and we're scolded because we were early . While we waited, an elderly women with a walker arrived . She was bent in half and shuffling in . The hostess told her she was 15 minutes late and would have to put her party of 6 in a booth the lady explained she was 15 minutes early for a 5 pm seating , that it was a special occasion and her party would not fit in a booth . She was told by the hostess she would have to make do. Since we were only 4 I could not trade with her. I was there with 2 teenagers and had to explain that what the hostess did was wrong . I complained to the manager. This is the second time I observed this level of rudeness in this restaurant and would not recommend it to anyone."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "CORNER! That's what I remember most from the dinner. That's because we were seated at the intersection between the bar servers and the major kitchen area. Each time somebody came through they yelled CORNER! So while I'm pretty sure the salmon I had was reasonably good, all I can remember was CORNER! Why not move? The hostess stand was less than helpful. We would have had to go back to the waiting area and wait 15-25 minutes for another table. CORNER! I've had bad tables in restaurants before, just never on this scale. There shouldn't even be a table there - or it should only be offered with full upfront disclosure. That said, our server was very nice and apologetic. Ask before you sit down at Frankie Bones. CORNER!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This is by far the best restaurant on the island. We come back to it every year. Amazing food and atmosphere....don't miss this one!!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "This was our first time at Frankie Bones. Even though I mixed up the reservation, they seated us immediately. I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Unbelievable! It was so good. The pasta and lobster were both cooked to perfection. My husband had a porkchop. It was tender and moist but fully cooked- a tough balance to achieve. Good meal at a new place that we will be back to again- hopefully soon."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our dinner at Frankie Bones. Loved the decor, the food was outstanding and the service was top notch. Our only regret was we went late in our week of vacation so we couldn't go twice?"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "This is one of those everyone should go once type spots; food will, as my husband says, "fill the belly" -portions are generous. Decor is 1940s Sinatra lounge and the dice lollipops are cute idea. Kids n families will enjoy, prices are fair and waitstaff trained to keep tabletops turning without being too obvious. Older couples or foodies might not be as enthralled..."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Second time we've been here. The early bird offering on this occasion was remarkable. Prime rib was perfectly cooked and a very nice portion. Twice baked mashed potato side was rich and tasty. Salad was crisp and the accompanying bread was warm either an herb butter. Atmosphere was old time Chicago type steakhouse. Next time steak is definitely what I'll order. A terrific choice. Tip: be certain to make a reservation."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Food was great, prices reasonable and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Loved the decor! The waitstaff were attentive and overall it was an excellent dining experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "extensive menu; covers all American tastes; good value; never disappoints; always satisfies. The shrimp scampi, prime rib, tile fish, and Italian entrees all satisfied family palates on this visit. The children's menu was also well-received. The waitress was personable, attentive and responsive. Always plan to return to this family dining standard."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Overall it was a good experience. The hostess did a masterful job of responding to the large amount of people in the lobby due to the inclement weather. The food was excellent, the server was very attentive and pleasant, and while the place was full to capacity, our food arrived quite promptly with just the right amount of time to enjoy the appetizers. I highly recommend the tuna carpaccio and the tilapia almondine. The wine list was good but not great. For a Italian restaurant, I felt there should have been more Italian wines, especially whites which were conspicuously absent. There are some very good yet moderately priced Italian whites that would complement the seafood quite well."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "From the moment we arrived the staff was amazing. True southern hospitality. Our waitress katie was very sweet & attentive yet not over bearing. The food most importantly was amazing! Every dish was so delicious. Frank's signature ribeye was the best we've ever had and The lobster mac and cheese was perfection. No complaints or slight disappointments in any dish. They definitely get brownie points for putting up with a grumpy member in our party. Perfect place for a special occasion or just a relaxed week night dinner."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Great and Plentiful Early Bird Special Entrees. 10 entrees at $15 and 10 entrees at $14. This includes choice of two salads or two soups and non-alcoholic beverages. Food quality top notch."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Excellent food. Waiter was terrific and especially accommodating to our little guy"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "After they initially wanted to put us in a small cramped room in the back, we opted to eat on the patio. Liver and onions were very good. Great martini. Overall, a nice dinner"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Ate at Frankie Bones while on vacation. Open Table reservation immediately honored and we were seated right away...in the bar !!! Incredibly NOISY...but service and food good...but not great...noise level is ridiculous in the bar area. The meatball appetizer was especially good and the entrees (NY Strip, Petite Filet, Liver & Onions, Sausage Pasta) were good. Service was just a little slow...not bad...just a little."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "It is an energetic atmosphere on a Friday night in the summer which we enjoyed. The service was efficient, friendly and fast. Meals were all really good, served in a nice way and expeditiously for a busy night. Definitely would return."
