Our server, Caroline, was a delight! She was engaging and very accommodating for our dietary restrictions. We celebrated our son’s 11th birthday and she made sure he felt celebrated and special. Highly recommend Bonnell’s for a special occasion!

I ate the shaved Brussels Sprouts salad and added grilled shrimp. It was delish!

We always come away very satisfied with Bonnell's offerings. Today was no exception. The trio special was so delicious and the Bison filet spectacular as always. You cannot go wrong picking this place to eat a very fine meal.

My wife and I have been wanting to eat at Bonnell's for some years. We live west of Fort Worth. Finally, we were able to do so for her birthday. The excellent reviews we have heard over these years have been true. Of course, we now much recommend this fine restaurant.

It was very good chef bonnell even came out to ask guest how everything was and thank us for coming which was so kind. Only thing was we were not seated we had to wait and we had reservations at 6, and ppl came later and were seated immediately. Also our waitress was not very attentive and short with us. But everyone else was kind and good was outstanding and amazing!!!!!

Whether it’s for a special occasion or a drink and appetizer, this is our “go to” place. ALWAYS delicious, fresh food...seafood to wild game. The Elk Tacos are a must! The wine list cannot be beat. And the service is friendly and professional.

My experience was fantastic. The food and service were perfect in every way, and Jolene was a pleasure to be served by. When my tire was flat in the parking lot, the bartender Jordan lent me his own jack from his car and helped me change it. 10/5 stars!

As usual, Bonnells was perfect in every way!!! You walk in and they are completely safe and clean! Social distancing at its best! Everyone is so nice and accommodating. They all make you feel at home. We love Barbara! She has been at Bonnells for 19 years! Be sure and ask for her because you’ll fall in love with her! The food was outstanding! We had elk tacos, green chili grits, Brie, and oysters Texafeller!!! These are our favorites at Bonnells!!! Thank you so much to Jon Bonnell and his fabulous team for always making our experience a great one!!

The food was just incredible. Mustard parmesan risotto is my new favorite thing, and our service was absolutely outstanding! Caroline was incredible and timed everything perfectly. She also suggested amazing wines that went beautifully with every part of the meal. It made for a wonderful anniversary dinner, and we will definitely visit again!

The service was outstanding. Jon Bonnell came by our table to thank us for coming and asked if everything was ok. Then the food started to arrive, the elk mini tacos were yummy, my husband also ordered the potato soup, it was also excellent. We spilt the buffalo tenderloin it did not disappoint! It was so tender you could cut it with a fork. We were celebrating our anniversary(late) thank you Covid 19. The waitress brought out a creme brûlée’s. OMG it was delicious. Thank you Bonnell’s for a great dinner.

We started off with the amazing Oysters Texasfeller and everything just got even more fabulous. The Pecan Crusted Redfish and the Quail & Mushroom Pasta dishes were absolutely perfect. Our server checked regularly and the manager stopped to ensure everything was perfect, which it was!

Bonnell's is always a great place for a special occasion or for just a good meal out. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food is always great and the portions were just the right size. I thought that the Key Lime Pie was going to be too small, but it was just right and tasted great.

The people were amazing!!! The main dish was just ok for the price. We loved the wait staff. So friendly and helpful. I wish there were more options. We had a gift card and probably won’t go back due to the prices and limited choices. We did get a free dessert for our anniversary that was absolutely delicious. So I would recommend the salad and dessert...just not the quail.
