This is a nice restaurant that is tastefully decorated in a rustic style taking advantage of the original mill aesthetics. Despite the hard wall/ceiling surfaces, the noise level increased as the tables filled but not excessively so. The service was good and wait person attentive. We had the pan seared scallops and risotto with shrimp. Both were properly cooked and nicely presented. This was the second time I've taken my mother there for dinner and will do so again in the future.

Brisket hash could have had more meat in it. Biscuits appetizers were delicious and a great value. Lobster rangoons were amazing as always!

The food was very good, with a lot of choice on the menu.
The service was acceptable.
The noise level was unbearable for me personally.
I could not engage with normal conversation with my wife.

Friendly welcoming attention from the moment you walk in the door. The server was pleasant, helpful making recommendations. Wine list is good, I had the seafood chowder, excellent and wild caught haddock, delicious. Companion had tuna and wanted it done medium. Server cautioned that more well done than medium would not be good. Tuna was done to perfection. Server checked back to be sure everything was alright. The converted mill is interesting and it was a great place to go before the theatre.

Brought a friend from North Carolina who has a very restrictive diet. She was able to find a meal that fit and she enjoyed it. Mine was the seared scallops and hers was the steak salad but she substituted shrimp for beef. We both enjoyed our meals and had plenty to eat.

Exceptionally good food, which rivals anything in Portland in a loud environment with inattentive and uninterested service. Overall a pleasant if non-romantic special occasion dinner.

Our meal at Fishbones was outstanding, as was the service by our super attentive Server Maciej. We explained that my son had to get back to campus and put in some more hours at the library that evening and he did everything to make our meal go efficiently but smoothly so we had a lovely time. Highlights were the BBQ wings, lobster dish with mushroom ravioli, tuna starter and peach cobbler. Nice selection of wine and beer as well. Atmosphere was inviting and not too loud to be able to enjoy easy conversation at our table, nor too dark to see the menu. We definitely plan to return!

Haven’t been for several months, menu changed from last time. There were several choices that caught my eye, I settled for the Sea Scallops, with the Ahi Tuna appetizer. Both were excellent! The dessert menu was also updated, both desserts were also excellent! Drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert for two, $123.00.

My wife and I went here on a “date-night”, sat at the bar for a cocktail, then sat for dinner. The hostess was very welcoming and the service was expectional! We ordered the smoked wing/rib sampler (perfectly cooked - fall off the bone) and ahi tuna bites for an appetizer (fresh and flavorful!), then we split the crab cake sandwich and the local beef sandwiches and they were amazing! Overall great experience, ambience, wine, and food.

Good food in a pleasant atmosphere! Our table was backed in an alcove which was great for conversation! With a group of 5 it's sometimes hard to all converse. The menu had good selection including fish, meat and vegetarian selections. The haddock with shrimp was enjoyed as well as the risotto, ribs and burgers. The Ahi Tuna strips were the appetizer of choice. Service was good with water glasses refilled without asking.

Fishbones is one of our favorite restaurants to go to in the Lewiston/ Auburn area. Owners Kate & Paul Landry can be seen there most nights. Kate is usually at the hostess station greeting and welcoming guests, and Paul, who is a trained Chef and a graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Culinarily Arts
is at the server station making sure that the meals go out properly. They have never failed to please. The ambience of the old mill is amazing. They offer full bar service and use local foods wherever possible.
Please go visit them if you are ever in the area. You will not be disappointed!

Usually have a good meal here but this time our entrees came out the same time our appetizers did. Asked that they take them back and it turned out they just kept my scallops under the heat lamps and they were ruined. Asked to get a fresh serving and 10 minutes later it arrived and it was fine.
Instead of an offer of comping the meal I noticed they charged us for 2 scallop entrees. Pointed this out to the server and host but really no good apologies offered.
