I had a great second experience eating at Bonnie and Reads! I highly recommend the Ahi Tuna, Mussels, Mari Mahi, Rib Eye and Maine Lobster Roll. Everything was perfect including the plate presentation! The servers were knowledgeable and very friendly!

Very nice . Happy Hour is a great value, regular dining not as much. The service was really good and so was the food. The ambiance is much better than when they first opened!!

This was our third visit to B and R. I love the ambiance in this restaurant. Parking can be an issue but there
is a parking garage across the street on Kiowa.
My husband ordered the crab legs and was very satisfied. I ordered Mahi Mahi. The fish, rice, and broccolini
were barely warm. I sent it back to be warmed. I think I was then served an entirely new plate. The fish was slightly warmer. The rice and vegetable were not any different than the first dish. The meal was good but would have been so much better at the right temperature. I also felt the portion was small. The server was
attentive and helpful.

I made a reservation for New Year’s Eve and when we arrived the table was ready and we didn’t have to wait for a single second. This was my first time at the restaurant and I will definitely come back. The prices are very affordable.

Overall it was good. Our server was really good, always available, friendly, and attentive. Only downgrades on food were that the lobster wasn’t described as fried when presented in the special description. Other than that it was all really good.

Accommodated our party of 9. Seated right at our reservation time. Our server, Matt, was the bomb. His recommendations were spot on. In our group, one gluten-free and one vegetarian and one child, everyone found wonderful menu options. Best fresh seafood. Don't let the white tablecloths fool you -- prices are very moderate.

Had a reservation for 6 and they put us in a booth which was large but would have preferred a table. Other then that the food at Bonnie and Reads is always very very good. The only food item that I found a little underwhelming was the New England clam chowder. It was pretty bland and needed some salt and pepper to make it acceptable. The crab filet was fantastic and I think the steaks at B&R rival those of The Famous across the street for less cost. The lobster tail I added was very good with it. Highly recommend B&R for date night or a special occasion and for 6 people the cost was very reasonable.

The food at Bonny and Read is a bit uninspired and not worth the high prices, but decent overall. Of the items we tried, here were our impressions:
- Crab dip appetizer: Was there even crab in this dish? It tasted entirely of cheese.
- Cod with lobster stuffing and asparagus: Cod was cooked well but flavorless, lobster stuffing was well seasoned and had a great mildly crispy outer texture.
- Steak with shrimp (special): The bacon cream sauce on top was fantastic and the steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. This dish was the best of those we had.
- Pineapple upside down cake: Good but not very memorable.
- Funny Bone: This dessert was really fantastic (peanut butter mousse sandwiched between two layers of chocolate cake, topped with a thin layer of ganache), but was so rich that no one wanted more than a couple of bites. Definitely one to share.

We wanted to go somewhere new for a date night and, boy, did we choose the right place!! We were seated immediately and Mitchell got us water right away. The lobster corn chowder was the best way to start our meal. He had the king crab dinner and I enjoyed the stuffed half lobster. We were blown away with how rich and tender and delicious it all was. We decided to go one step further and get the funny bone for dessert. It was the perfect way to end the meal. Rich and delicious. I am recommending this place to everyone I know. We will be back!

We had a wonderful meal, once again, at Bonny and Read. My only complaint (suggestion) is they expand menu options. Every meal we've had there is great, but the options, particularly the fresh seafood options, are limited.

Always enjoy the Old Fashioned they serve, and how attentive our wait person was.... EXCEPT that we had instructed them not to put in order for main meal until AFTER the appetizer plates were removed. And because we expected some late arrivals who got there just as they brought the food out, halfway through our consuming the appetizers!?!!!! Really!??? That was the only aggravating part for us, since now the late arrivals' food came waaaaay after we had finished ours.... Guess specifying twice what we wanted to do, that we were in no rush, that we had people arriving later, was not translated to the kitchen staff, or did they just ignore the waiter? Again, the drinks were awesome, service (mostly) attentive and accommodating....

My wife and I ate there on Friday at happy hour. The crab dip appetizer is amazing. I had the filet and my wife had the prime rib dinner. They were both cooked to perfection and the flavor was great. I am glad we found this place, it will definitely be a part of our rotation. The price is also very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you get.

A welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door! We were greeted right away, seated immediately, and we were not pressed to order drinks or appetizers at any time. However, the drinks and appetizers we’re outstanding! We each ordered a different main course and enjoyed both the presentation and delicious tastes. This was our first visit but we believe we have found a new “go-to” restaurant!
