Great anniversary dinner!
We had a great time for our anniversary dinner here. The service was great, food was good, and the patio was gorgeous. I had the tuna steak, and my wife had pasta. Both delicious. We werent rushed by out server, we just sat and enjoyed ourselves. The only criticism I would offer is minor - their bourbon selection is a little lacking.

Great place to go for Brunch,
Great place to go for Brunch, lunch or dinner! The food is always good and I like having the choice of indoor or outdoor dining. Have always had a great experience. The staff is always friendly. We do not go enough!

Service sporadic, food delicious.
We live nearby and visit Bonnie Ruth's quite often. The food is always impeccable, but the service is sporadic. Also, if the hostess would separate adults with children and the adults without children, it would be nice. Nothing worse than going to dinner on a Saturday night and listening to a kid scream and bang on the table while the parents do nothing about it. Waiter actually asked us how to decanter the wine we ordered since he has never done it before. Service needs improvement.

We had casoulette and seafood crepes. Both were delicious. Great place to share an anniversary quietly.

Great place for a nice dinner
This has quickly become one of our favorite places. We love the outdoor patio!

The brunch buffet was excellent. The service was very good. The only recommendation is to include sausage and not just bacon on the brunch menu.

Best cakes in the metroplex
Group of 8. Food was excellent. Service was good, a bit slow.
Calamari frites were superb appetizer, and the mussels also.
Entrees were all great. The best course was dessert!
Their cakes are phenomenal: red velvet, chocolate raspberry, lemon strawberry - all scrumptious.

Love me some Bonnie Ruth
Brunch is heavenly. Been here multiple times and will be back some more. Brunch? Dinner? Yes! YES!

Bonnie Ruth's staff is attentive
Bonnie Ruth's staff is attentive and efficient, w/o being intrusive. The food was good, some even thought their's was great. My friends all said they would go back again. We got a table by the window as I has asked, but they have a wonderful ,quiet patio, when the weather cooperates. I wondered if I needed to make a reservation for lunch, but would have been disappointed if I had not.

This is a great restaurant
This is a great restaurant with good service and a menu that has something for everyone. Burgers, prime rib sandwiches to gourmet meals that will compete with the best restaurants. Happy hour deals are also excellent. This is a place you will go back to.

Bonnie Ruths...great Mussels
Mussels with white wine sauce is the way to go. Outdoor seating is a must on a very private and intimate patio with a great buzz to it!!
The red velvet cake is a must as well, very moist and quite tasty.

We went to Bonnie Ruth's to celebrate an early Mother's Day. The Brunch buffet was delicious! There was a great assortment of food and the price was very reasonable. Service was excellent. Will definitely go again.

Nice evening out for Mom
The kids and I took mom out for dinner on a Saturday night before Mother's Day. The weather was perfect for outside dining and the outdoor patio was a wonderful atmosphere. There was a little confusion when we first came in as someone had taken our reservation but the issue was resolved immediately and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the food quite a bit, including what my kids had off the fairly standard kids' menu. We will be back and I would recommend it to others.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was excellent
Although they had the $5 hamburger special on a Monday night I chose to have the pork chops They were delicious. The mashed potatoes and asparagus was great as well. My wife had the Tilapia which she enjoyed as well. Several tables around us had ordered the hamburger special and it looked absolutely great. I will try that next time.
We had a 5:00 PM reservation and when we arrived there were plenty of open seats but they did have our reservation noted. Some of the tables had tablecloths and some did not. Ours did not. My wife inquired as to why ours did not and the hostess' reply was "well some do and some don"t". I believe the appropriate response should have been in the order of "would you prefer a table with a table cloth"?

This is a great place for a group or for a date. Great patio, great happy hour and delicious food!

I knew I was making the perfect decision as I selected Bonnie Ruth's (Frisco) as my venue to celebrate my daughter's surprise graduation day brunch this past weekend. The patio was absolutely amazing, the service (by Mary) was superb, and all of my guest complimented continuously about the atmosphere, and the indulgent brunch menu.I have entertained her often and it has ALWAYS been the perfect finishing touch to my events.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love this place
Bonnie Ruth's is a rare gem in the north suburbs. The food quality is very good to excellent. I found this place a little over two years ago and have always enjoyed the food. In the last year their service has started to slip a bit. The wait staff, while always professional, occasionally disappears or seems overwhelmed. I expressed the concerns to the management and they were receptive but things haven't improved much on the service front. If your food is that good, you should have service to match.

The Sunday brunch was excellent.
The Sunday brunch was excellent. Not only was there a large variety of foods, but they were all cooked to perfection. We were really impressed with items that are typically overcooked or greasy on other buffets, such as the scrambled eggs and sausage. They were moist, light, and very flavorful. The service was very attentive and pleasant, this is definitely worth a visit.

The Father's Day brunch was fantastic! Great service and food! The prime rib station was superb.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my husband there for a brunch on Sunday 6-16-13 for his Father's Day & Birthday! We both thought it was very good, it was our first time to dine there! It was very crowded & very noisy, extremely hard to get threw all the people (waiting to get seated) & to get to the buffet! I think a lot of people did not have reservations, so glad I did that & so we didn't have to wait for a table. I would like to try it again & when it isn't Father's Day & see how it goes. The food was very good & the Red Velvet Cake on the buffet was Wonderful!!!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place! Great food and service. The food was absolutely delicious! We had a crowd of eight and every dish that each of us had was amazing! We will return again!
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always good food
Been going here for years, but love the new dinner menu with more budget friendly items. The service has improved as well.
You can't go there and not get dessert!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We wanted to have a nice bridal brunch and choose this venue. We had a great time. The service was good, the food was good.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall a very good experience
I was pleased with the service, and while I was underwhelmed by the lunch menu at first, I must admit that it was one of the best lunches I've had in a while. It isn't knock your socks off, nor is it particularly sophisticated, but it certainly beats most other restaurant choices, and for the price you would pay to eat a chili's!
The cakes, though. THAT was the find. It may have been the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. Moist, flavorful with a perfectly balanced icing!
All in all, a gem!
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is always great but the service is outstanding. Recommended the French wines and brought us a few samples. One for our filet and one for our fish. Dessert has never disappointed including a large variety as well. Made my birthday dinner a delight!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed omelets with herbs and goat cheese, served with roasted potatoes and fresh fruit.
Thank you, Wayne for wonderful service.

My new Sunday Brunch location
The food was great. Not a lot to choose from, but what they did have was very good. Not your average brunch buffet. All of the basic breakfast foods, yummy desserts, an omlet station. Mimosas that were only $2.00! Service was fantastic. Our drinks were never empty for long. It was busy, but not a crazy busy and the food was replaced often.

Great place to go for brunch! Only problem - don't sit in back corner of restaurant as it is hot in the summer!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite restaurants
We just love this place. It has become one of our 2 or 3 favorite restaurants in town. Great place. Comfortable, wonderful outdoor patio, good service and good food. Great date night place.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for Sunday brunch and was very impressed with the quality of food & value. There were 6 people in our party and everyone said that Bonnie Ruth's exceeded their expectations. Often buffets aren't the best (quality / selection)...this one was. From the breakfast foods to the desserts. Very well done. We will be back.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have never had a bad meal
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Love everything about it and always come here for a special occasion. They have a great patio with a fireplace that is so nice to sit by and have a glass of wine and some appetizers.

Best Brunch Buffet in Dallas Area
My husband and I went for the Brunch Buffet, and were so surprised at how fantastic the food options were and they tasted fantastic too! They had French Toast, crepes, made to order omelets, made to order eggs benedict, mussels, chicken paillard, salads, calamari, pancakes, bacon, sausage, tons of desserts and baked goods, like croissants, and fresh fruit, just to name some of the items and all for only $15 a person! I couldn't believe the great food for the price, and $2 mimosas, which were mostly champagne, unlike other places that are mostly OJ! We can't wait to go back for Brunch, it was that good!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great brunch buffet
We can here for the Sunday brunch buffet and really enjoyed ourselves. We loved the calamari and made to order omelets as well as all the traditional breakfast fare and pastries. We made reservations for as soon as they opened which was perfect since the place was getting crowded by the time we left around 10:30.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best steaks I've had in the Dallas area. Beats some of the more expensive steak houses. Only complaint: the staff forgot our haricot verts and tried to correct the mistake by bringing some out which were still a bit tough.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place for outdoor dining, lovely to be on the patio now that the weather is cooling down. Very good selection of different dishes from soup to dessert. And the desserts are divine--worth the trip just for those!!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get together with friends
Its a very pretty restaurant, has a country home feel. The food was good, but the baked goods are outstanding, I definitely would return to try more dishes.
. Service-wise, perhaps they were a bit busy in the kitchen, my friends and I were there on a Wednesday, at 1:30pm..lunch crowd was gone. Our meals took a while in reaching our table. Our waiter seemed friendly enough.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in Frisco for a conference so 4 of us checked out Bonnie Ruth's based on other reviews. They had a great menu with lots of variety. The food was very good as well. Even had some Gluten Free options for two in our group who are GF. I was a little disappointed in the wine list, not a huge selection but we did find a nice bordeaux. The drunken pear and goat cheese salad was excellent. I had the Duck Two Ways and it was outstanding. Two had the Crepitement de Porc which was also outstanding. Neither of them could finish it so they both took to go boxes for a late night snack. The fourth had a seafood special which also looked good. We split two desserts which were also good. It was late on a Wed. night so there was no crowd.

We Keep Going Back
Whether we go for brunch or dinner, we enjoy the ambiance and delicious food at this restaurant.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful evening out!
What a wonderful evening out! We dined outside on the patio with a lovely fireplace and heated lamps to make for a cozy evening. The entrees were delicious and dessert was amazing! Best carrot cake I've ever eaten!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always the same menu
The ambiance, the food and the service has always been great at Bonnie Ruth's. We've lived in Frisco since they opened and we loved to go there for special occasions. Here's the downside; they have not changed their menu at all and they upped their prices. They need a new chef who can spice up the menu and lower their prices. A small plate of fabulous steak salad and fries shouldn't be 20+ dollars. If they do modify their menu we will go back. Otherwise, we'll just do takeout for their fabulous desserts!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
BRUNCH AT ITS BEST
We love going here for sunday brunch. We usually make a reservation and enjoy the variety of foods offered. Service is always over the top good . . .Highly recommend this neighborhood gem . . .
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Nice food, romantic atmosphere
We've been there for lunch and brunch, inside and outside. Food was just fine and it feels romantic, like you are in real Paris cafe. Will come back again.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bonnie Ruth's is a consistent winner. Waiters who remember regulars, great menu, really good prices, wonderful food. The only down side is that is is not huge, so there can be a wait if you don't have a reservation. Good for lunch, dinner, or brunch. The menu has enough breadth to make it a place for regular visits.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not a bad food item on the buffet and the service was great. The staff was helpful and we did not have to ask for a thing. I would go badk again and tell my friends. The price was reasonable also.

Women's Night Out
Five of us were looking for a place to celebrate our friendship in a special way for the holidays. I was looking for something different than a chain, in Frisco, festive and warm feeling but not too pricey. Bonnie Ruth's worked near perfect. The salads and pasta dishes we had tasted good and were reasonably priced. ( I may need to go back for steak with my husband.) The rich chocolate cake we shared at the end was a great finish.
It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was not that full, but it was still noisy. We were having to speak loudly to be heard across the table. The server was stretched a little thin, but since we were not in a hurry, didn't bother us at all. Our group would go back!
