Our first time at Bonny and Read - we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our server Bri was absolutely perfect. She recommended dishes, checked on us at just the right times and was very pleasant to talk to. The food was also fantastic. We began with a dirty martini and the Blackbeard. Superbly crafted drinks started a wonderful evening. Blue Crab Dip, then a Bonny and Read Filet - you can't go wrong. The dip was delicious and accompanied by house-made butter crackers, bread and carrots and celery. Wonderful. The filet was cooked perfectly as were the potatoes and broccolini. Overall, a superb experience and we will be back soon to try something new (I've heard the halibut is special).

I took my wife here for her birthday. I made reservations through Open Table and asked for a window booth. Upon arrival we were seated at a very nice window booth and our waiter Matt was extremely knowledgeable and professional. The food was very good and the ambiance was also very good for a special occasion. Would recommend for special dinners with someone special.

Mixed review when the masses are reading.. so I’ll say first off for visiting and hiking all day, looking for a good straight forward meal this was a winner. I had the black garlic fries, kale Caesar, and east coast oysters to start (some times the simple things are the best in life) and that definitely hit the spot! For entrees we both had blue cheese crushed steaks and they weren’t the best I ever had but definitely tasty and cooked well!

My issues were small but notable, smelled like pungent seafood as soon as you walked in the restaurant, ambiance was cozy enough but still a little open generic feeling.. waitress looked at me oddly when I ordered a glass of wine, asked for my ID, then never brought it to me. Finally our meals came and I told her if she’d forgotten to put it in not to bring it, she said it had been sitting there she just forgot to bring it (which wasn’t true) she ended up bringing it and taking it off my ticket. It all worked out fine but was just awkward and annoying.

We were celebrating the end of our financial audit and we had a great time. We stayed and talked for a while and no one rushed us out. The food was fantastic. Service was great. Now one of my favorite restaurants along with the Rabbit Hole.

My wife's sirloin was cooked to perfection. I was less impressed with the cioppino. The tomato base was superb as were the scallops, shrimp, clams, and mussels. However, I couldn't enjoy the crab legs. The crab leg cracker wouldn't crack open the shell, it squeezed the shell without cracking. I tried cutting the shell with knife and fork to no avail.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant and the dish I had. I ordered the cod with lobster stuffing. The cod was overcooked and too much stuffing on top on the cod, which was dry. Plus, the hollandaise sauce was cold. It was not worth 26 bucks. I've had better seafood at other places that is much cheaper. My friend's stuffed lobster was a little better, but shocked that no clarified butter was offered to dip the lobster. My spouse had the scallops with heirloom grits. The scallops were nice and grits okay. I felt the food on the menu is overpriced. I did like the ambiance and our waitress was friendly, but not sure why it took so long to receive our food. I think she let it stay ,after it was ready, a bit too long before bringing our food.

Stuffed lobster was not enough food, my filet was slightly overcooked, our waiter dropped off our food and never came back to see how our meal was. The mashed potatoes were good, but dry, and i wanted more butter.I wanted to order a glass of wine,, but he never came back to ask anything. We asked for our check thru another waiter, which he promptly gave us, then our waiter arrives, we explain our situation and all he says is I am sorry. We watched our waiter circle the room many times, but never even looked at us. Very dissappoined in his service. I don't know that we will be back, also it was my birthday which I announced making the reservation, but no acknowledgement from anyone. I wish I knew the waiters name, but I don't think he told us, he was very unprofessional.

The steak with the blue cheese crust was outstanding! The cod stuffed with lobster was good. However, the lobster stuffing was very light on the lobster and too heavy on the breading. I couldn't taste the lobster. Oysters on the half-shell were outstanding as usual.

Average at best. Under seasoned and expensive. Please ask you chef to travel so he gets a perspective. I do not recommend based on taste and value.
Sorry but based on decades of traveling and fine dinning, this restuarant is below average

We had great expectations for B&R, but we’re disappointed. The chowders were excellent, the service was very good, but the mahi-mahi was Over cooked making it quite dry. This should not happen in a restaurant specializing in seafood. Also, even though I made it clear it was our Anniversary, not one mention was made!
