    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

    The food wasn't up to par that evening. The pork schnitzel was very dry and salty, my husband's choice. The fish special that our friend ordered was also over cooked as was my salmon. Three of the four of us were not satisfied with our dinners. However, we did not complain as our waiter did not seem to notice that we left food on our plates. We are local , but we were disappointed this evening.

    The food was excellent and the service was great. We had reservations so there was only a 5 minute wait time. However, in the past, we have never been able to eat there due to the high volume and 1-2 hr wait for a table. Learning from past experience, we will never show up without a dinner reservation.

    We read the reviews and were a little skeptical because of some comments. However, we were very pleased with our experience. Will was our server and he did a great job. Our dinners were nicely prepared. We ordered dessert, but be prepared for their generous portions (which we happily ate every bit of). We will return.

    We loved the ambience and feel of Frankie Bones. Every part of the meal was superb. The seafood mushrooms were so delicious with an incredible filling. The veal parm is old school Italian, pounded thin and pan-fried like my husbands Mother made. It was absolutely delicious. Lobster Mac n cheese had a homemade sauce that was decadently rich and full of perfectly cooked lobster. The dessert sampler was an excellent choice with Tiramisu, a cannoli and carrot cake. All made in house and as good as any New York bakery. If we lived in HHI, we would eat here once a week. We left with the feeling of having a wonderful dining experience. This was our best meal on HHI.

    been here many times, never disappoints. went 2 nights ago and it was again awesome. menu might be biggest and most varied on island of Hilton Head...great seafood selections, steak selections, pasta selections, chicken & veal selections, over a dozen great appetizers, and wonderful desserts including the S'Mores, which are cooked by YOU over the table-brought miniature hibachi. This time I had the Veal Saltimbocca and it was perfection. Also love the Lobster Mac & Cheese or Broiled Seafood Trio. Wife and grad-school kids also adore this place. Great ambiance, maroon leather high-back booths and low-light club-like atmosphere. Very romantic, yet fun. Fantastic service, especially if you get Carr, long-time member of wait staff. Go, enjoy.
