Great meal at FishBones a long term favorite of ours. Quality of the Grouper and Steak was as good as ever. Prompt, friendly service. We were glad to see the Gulp of Mexico is Still the specialty cocktail : )

Great Food for a reasonable price
The food is excellent here. As you walk in you see the grill. Fresh fish and steaks are being cooked to perfection. I had the prime rib and I saw the hunk of perfectly cooked meat as I walked in. The prices are in line with a good steak/seafood place. A little pricy but not outrageous. There definitely wasn't a "tourist" markup.
The only downside is that the place needs some serious remodeling. Everything is very dark and old time fishing themes. The place looks like the 70s-80s. If they spent some money lightening it up and refreshing the decor it would be a perfect spot.

Excellent selection of fresh fish! My only concern is now we have to go back and try something else. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

lovely food nice atmosphere
Decided we wanted a good piece of fish, looked at the menu online and booked. Very good food, very good service, great wine list and lovely decor and atmosphere. Would have given the food 4.5 but no option to do this, and would recommend to friends. Would have been nice if there was a rose wine available by the glass but I just chose a prosecco instead.

We have been coming to FishBones for 14 years and it is still one of our favorites. Food excellent, new preparations to stay current have been added, love the new shrimp cocktail, have always enjoyed the open flame taste from the grill. Mahi, Stuffed Shrimp, Kids Cheeseburger, & Chicken and Fried Shrimp meals were all very good.....if you have not been to a local staple for many years....try it! The only negative is getting out on Sand Lake Rd when you leave....be patient.....

It was our 35th Wedding anniversary
It was our 35th Wedding anniversary, and we were treated like royalty. I cannot say enough about the staff, Manager and our wonderful server, Rebecca. She is a gem. We will be bringing our friends to Fishbones many times in the near future. The best Filet Mignon I have ever had.

Nice seafood spot
This was fun for groups; a lot of long tables in the back room. The service was good as was the food. They were very accomodating. My suggestion if you are on a time crunch is to as the server to put the food in as the same time or just shortly after the app's, as our entrees were delayed by quite a bit.

From the free Valet parking to the food all was excellent. Wonderful, friendly service and the best food we've had in Orlando!

FISH LOVER'S PARADISE
Our visit on August 18th was one of the most enjoyable evenings during our visit in Orlando. The food was unbelievable and the service was excellent. Looking forward to another visit the next time we are in the area.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good place for a business dinner
I have been to FishBones multiple times when in Orlando. They consistently have a solid seafood selection and can throw in a good steak for those in your party which enjoy beef over fish. The value is good for the expense report and the quality has never failed me.

We booked this reservation
We booked this reservation to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. This was the restaurant we first visited on our blind date. The staff was extremely accommodating and congratulated us on our special occasion. We had an amazing experience reminiscing our first date. Thank you all for making our special day very special. From the Restaurant Manager down to the Hostess, they were exceptional. We will be back

Very Good Food - Great Waiter
Tom was our waiter and made the experience wonderful from the moment he introduced himself. Manager came around and offered a complimentary sampling and it was delicious! It was our first visit and will definitely not be our last. As the evening progressed the food only got better. Can't wait to go back and enjoy other dishes. I could barely make up my mind and kept poor Tom offering just a couple more minutes to decide.

I have been going to Fishbones for over 15 years every time I am in Florida for business. Always outstanding!b

Food was fabulous! Our waiter,
Food was fabulous! Our waiter, Marco, was very attentive. The only drawback was we were seated in the back 'porch' area with a large group that was celebrating some big achievement and they were VERY LOUD. Then there were times when they would tap their silverware on their glasses to get everyone to quiet down so the leader could to make speeches. The whole room had to stop talking included other diners like ourselves who were not a part of the group. Awkward!?! If they were going to take over the whole room, then no one else should have been seated in that area. Possibly FishBones didn't know what they were going to pull but it still took the shine off the evening for our group.

Great local find!!!
Very welcoming hostess staff the second I walked through the door. When I asked if the games were available they proceeded to kindly direct me to the bar area. The bar team was extremely knowledgable on the menu,and always kept my glass full. Their steak recommendation was amazing and cooked to perfection. I will be back soon!

Saturday evening at Fishbones
From the crabcakes to the cappuccino, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Fishbones. The house salad had plenty of fresh tomatoes with a pleasant, light dressing. The fried shrimp were perfectly crunchy and sweet. The stone crab was served cold with a mustard sauce which I enjoyed but I asked for a serving of hot butter to warm my crab which made them even better. We had timely, excellent service in the more intimate booth area of the restaurant. We will certainly be making a return visit

Surf & Turf Baby!
Fish Bones is a long way from home but whenever I am in Orlando I always make plans to eat there. This time I took a couple of my work clients from out of town. They were both raving about the food, service and atmosphere. The staff let me pick a quite corner table that gave me an opportunity to highlight the benefits of using our services!
The staff and food really shined and in turn made me look good!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a group of 10 and we did not make it easy!!! The service was excellent as was the food!!! I would suggest anyone with a large party put this restaurant at the top of their list!!!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service. Sean the bartender was awesome. Happy hour is amazing for the prices they offer in the tourist belt of Orlando. I recommend the gator bites, dang bang shrimp, and or raw oysters.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Although I love seafood and everything on the menu sounded wonderful, I was in the mood for a steak. I had the large Filet Mignon with baked potato. I ordered the filet cooked medium but it came a little too rare for my liking. I took a chance and asked them to cook it a little bit more, and amazingly, it came back perfect. It is rare that I'm unable to finish my steak at the restaurant but this one was so big was forced to save some to have for breakfast the next day. Yeah, what a bummer, right? I would love to go back and try some of that delicious sounding seafood but I'm sure that when I go back I'll be thinking about how good that steak was.

Special Night in Orlando
We have a time share, so we don't eat dinner out EXCEPT for One Special Night at Fish Bones! Every year we choose one night to enjoy the best wood-grilled fish we've ever tasted at Fish Bones. We look forward to it every year and are never disappointed .
10/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
We are here twice, once with friends once with family. Both meals were excellent. The menu is fish and beef. Everyone really enjoyed thier meals. The atmoshere is quiet and the service could not have been better.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Driving to the restaurant is a challenge with traffic in all directions. Once there you can relax and enjoy the food. Great selection of meat and fish. The salad is delicious. The waiter was efficient and friendly.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
A quiet birthday celebration.
A friend was in town. We went to see "Numba" at downtown disney and this was one of the best restaurants in the area to have a late dinner. And it was a quality dinner at that. Great service and a terrific menu with many many excellent selections.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Not being from Orlando, we wanted a nice restaurant to celebrate a 30th anniversary that had good seafood--grouper in particular.
Went online and chose yours among many we reviewed. We were delighted with our choice and knew we would certainly return some day. We also observed and listened to others rave about your restaurant. What a "scrumptious" meal and delightful evening! Thank you.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
This was our first time here.
This was our first time here. First we were greeted with a free valet service, This was great since we had been to one of the theme parks earlier that day, and to have them park your car for you was a treat. We choose the catch of the day. The food, and service were excellent.
Thank you for a wonderful dinning experience.
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
How to describe our perfect meal? Food was outstanding. Service was off the charts - Marco was the best ever. Started with Stone Crab claws for the table of 5. Excellent. Salads were really very good. Then to the entrees: 3 of us ordered the NY Strip steaks - now, I have had steaks all over the country in many fine steak houses - this one stacked up completely with the best I have ever had. A perfect Medium Rare - cooked over wood. YUM! 1 order of grilled Lobster Tail - awesome as well. Then, the final person ordered the pork chop - don't know how they do it for the money but simply outstanding. Not a doubt, when next in Orlando I will return and order the pork chop. Don't miss this place if you are in town!!!

We had the Calamari and crab
We had the Calamari and crab cakes for appetizers. Both were very good. Then we had the house salad which was fresh and crisp. Finally we had fish and scallop/shrimp, ribeye steaks, and scallops. The portions were very good for those of us that want more than a small portion. In fact there was so much food two ended up with doggie bags and we had no room for dessert. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgable about the dishes. Great night out.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love the fried shrimp, always great! Food is very good.....prices are reasonable, very busy atmosphere, noisy?, but great value. The open pit when you enter is a great draw as well. Service can lag a little, as everywhere. but great staff attitude.

A real hit !!
First visit with 3 couples. Great evening. !! Food and service was outstanding.
Pleasant atmosphere. Definitely will return !!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
This place has quality seafood. They do not scrimp on the portions as most everything is large. They have very good steaks too as you get to see all the grilled seafood and steaks on the grill when you walk in to the restaurant. The decor is nautical so it seems a little dated but the food is quality in tast and good size portions. Not an inexpensive place but not as expensive as a lot of the nice places in the area. I would say it is a place if you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere kind of place with good steaks and seafood this would be a good place to choose if you are in the area. I would go back without hesitation.

A Wonderful Dining Experience!
This was my first time at FishBones and will not be my last. I came with two of my friends and we were not dissapointed. The hosts welcomed us with a smile and sat us right away. Our server Lee never let his attention fade. He had a few other tables around us, but we never felt ignored and could tell the other tables were also enjoying themselves. They have some different cocktails to choose from that were fantastic, and the food came out perfect. If I had to choose a highlight of the night though, my sweet tooth wins. Their dessert options will truely impress. I had the pineapple monkey bread...amazing!!! I can't wait to return.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first trip to Fishbones and we were very pleased. Excellent food and excellent service. We will go back.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Used to visit and eat here often as a child but didn't remember it. Took my husband for his birthday after a day in Orlando and it was great. The "Mixed grill" was an amazing dish! It came with two big pieces of the chefs choice, scallop and shrimp scampi, a side item, house salad and bread. The server,Ed was great. The chef even sent out two small plates of the Key West shrimp appetizer for his birthday and it was so good. Will eat here every time I go to Orlando!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing Food - Wonderful Food
We chose Fish Bones to celebrate our last night of vacation - and it was a GREAT choice!! The meal was fantastic!!! Every course - from the delicious appetizers to the fabulous salads to the scrumptious right down to the last crumb of the heavenly desserts - was absolutely exquisite!!! Our waitress, Renee, was top-notch!! She was so sweet, funny, knowledgeable, and professional - simply one of the best servers I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She really made our last night in Orlando one to remember!!! I highly recommend Fish Bones - and further recommend asking if Renee is working so you can ask to sit in her section!!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love this place! Great service & warm atmosphere. the Gulf of Mexico margarita with its flaming cube is delicious & surf & turf was perfectly prepared. Nice place for special occasions.

From the second we walked in till the time we walked out we we're impressed .. Service, food , atmosphere , was all very nice ! Just a great all around experience and the food was nothing short of amazing!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
You Will NOT Be Disappointed!!!
This is a true find!
Dinner service was terrific...our server made several great suggestions and was friendly and very helpful. My wife had fresh grilled Maui and said it was the best she ever had. I ordered the larger order of Prime Rib....the waiter said I would not be disappointed...I wasn't! I never had a Prime Rib with this flavor...the taste was different....and just wonderful. All grilled items are cooked on a wood grill. Dinner included a salad and side item too!
By the way...the manager stopped by our table to welcome us...and gave us a small taste of an appetizer...what a great touch...made us feel extremely welcomed.
Fish Bones (and Johnnies Hideaway/same owner/company) are two great spots...you will not be disappointed.

My new favorite restaurant
My husband and I enjoy dining in Orlando. Two of our favorites are close to each other. Mortens Steak House and The Bone Fish Grill.It is hard to believe that we will not be returning to either restaurant. Fish Bone surpassed both. I have numerous food allergies. The wait staff, manager and chef were wonderful concerning my allergies. We could not speak more highly about our dining experience.
