    I was recommended this place buy a co-worker. The atmosphere is wonderful the food outstanding and the service was right on que. I was taken care of but didn't feel like they were hovering or trying to turn the table to get the next tip I am a younger man who feels like I am being rushed out of places more often than not I was very pleased to be waited on not pushed through my meal.

  • Not up to par
    Cammy
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    This dinner was not up to par. The bolognese sauce on my spaghetti had hardly any meat and the salmon was dry. The service was abysmal. 10 minutes to get the six drinks after ordering. And then he did not take our order so we waited longer. One order came wrong and had to be redone. This is not typical of Frankie Bones, but then I normally go during the week and not on Saturday night.

    I am a connoisseur of Eggplant Parmesan, and this one was pretty close to great. The eggplant slices were crispy without being greasy, and the tomato sauce on the pasta underneath was light and not overpowering. The bread is seriously good too. I wish we didn't live 600 miles from this place!

    What happened? Frankie's used to be one of our favorite restaurants on HHI. Not any more. Who doesn't know how to cook a steak? My daughter ordered the filet cooked medium. When it came out, they steak was so rare it practically flinched when she cut into it. She sent it back. When it came out the second time, it was still blood red. They did get it right on the third attempt, but by then, we were over the experience. My wife couldn't eat the horseradish salmon, and the meatballs on my spaghetti and meatballs seemed to be more fat than meat. Chef Boyardee would have been proud. Too many good restaurants on Hilton Head to do this again. Try restaurant 843.

    We come to Hilton Head for two weeks each October. With many many restaurants to choose from, we make it a point to enjoy Frankie Bones twice each visit. The salads are excellent, the lobster mac & cheese is great, the sea food is wonderful, and the steaks and prime rib are hard to beat!

  • Oktoberfest at Frankie's
    HWT3VIP
    Dined on 10/3/2014
    Each year Frankie Bones has there Oktoberfest with authentic German/Bavarian food. One of the specials is always their combo plate which one person cannot eat, so expect a second meal of Brats, Knockwurst, Sauerbraten, Beef Roladen , Sauerkraut, red cabbage, and Spaetzle. Yummy. It was crowded on Friday October 3rd. The AC was turned down expecting the large crowd. So if you are prone to chills, bring a sweater. Even with the rain outside, there were several dining under the canopy.

    Frankie's is located in a quaint shopping area off of Hwy 278. Your GPS won't get you to the door, but you'll be close. Reservations strongly suggested. We has a 7PM reservation on a Thursday night and were seated promptly in a nice "very private" booth indoors. They offer outside seating, but it's really nice inside. We ate off the "specials menu" for the night (Catfish and Short ribs). Both entrees were excellent and very reasonably priced. So, don't expect to spend big $$$$'s at Frankie Bones. Service was great. We were out of there in about 75 minutes and never felt hurried.

My shrimp scampi dinner was to die for and my husband's New York strip was cooked to perfection. A true gem of a restaurant!!! We can not wait for our next visit to Frankie Bones!!!

    The German potato salad was not, in any way, German potato salad. When I complained to the wait staff she too agreed. But then a kitchen staff came to the table to argue with me. I received red skin potatoes with a little bacon Greece on them.

    We eat at Frankie Bones often because it is close to home and the food is never disappointing though rarely wonderful. Service is almost always wonderful, cheerful and prompt. We prefer dining in the bar area as some of the other areas can get very loud making conversation difficult.

    Being fairly new to the area, the search was on to find a good place for a birthday celebration and boy did we find the perfect spot! Frankie Bones will be a regular stop for us from now on. Great service (thank your stars if you get Joe!), great food selection, fun cocktails and the feeling that, just maybe, Frankie and the boys might come strolling through the front door! Can't say enough about the staff. Don't miss it!

    I've been to Hilton Head many times and made a reservation ahead of time for this trip because I've wanted to try out Frankie Bones. We were not impressed....nothing bad, but all was just ok. We were there early and they were sold out of the special I ordered. And our server was very curt. Everyone can have a bad day but at least try to be pleasant! Not the experience I was looking for.

    Have been very disappointed with the food in general on HH Island. Even highly rated restaurants get a so so from us. We are foodies and find most to be overpriced and average at best. Frankie Bones was a pleasant surprise. Our calamari app was OK (a little overdone,) but the other apps and entrees were very good to outstanding. Prices were average for HH Island
