    We were on vacation celebrating our 40th anniversary. Our son and daughter called Frankie Bones and arranged to pay for our dinner. Don was our server and was fantastic. He came at the end and instead of the bill told us about our surprise,

    One of our favorite places in Hilton Head -- try to go at least once on every trip in (we usually make it a two times visit - LOL). THe ribeye marinated in coffee is absolutely amazing - Love the escargot, love ALL the pasta's and the drinks are GREAT!!! Highly recommend it -- best part is when the Sinatra Music is playing in the background !!!

    We visited HH for vacation. We arrived for our 8pm reservation at 7:55pm. We did not get our food until 9:08pm. The waiter did not offer any apology, discount, or anything but we ensured that was reflected in his tip. The food was pretty good but the wait was off putting and we were just ready to get back to the resort.

    We were seated out on the patio as requested, but right by the door. Behind my chair was the serving tripod for the food trays. Every time they needed it, my chair was knocked into making it a less than pleasant dinner. We both had the half slab of ribs. The meat was fall off the bone tender, but the sauce had an over abundance of red pepper making it too spicy to eat. The baked potato casserole was also very dry.

    Excellent food, amazing service (even contacting us after we left as we left one personal item in the booth), great atmosphere! We all loved the bread, meals and desserts! The s'mores at the table: AMAZING! Your attention to detail is noticed and appreciated! WE LOVE FRANKIE BONES & SERG GROUP. SO lucky to live on Hilton Head and have such awesome places - especially Frankie Bones!

    Great meal at Frankie Bones. Very busy, but once we were seated the server named Candyce was very attentive. Everything was delicious. Had Seafood stuffed mushrooms and baked potato spring rolls for appetizers. Everyone had the Pasta Trifecta for their entree and it was very good and a great value, as well.as getting to try 3 pasta items from the menu. Highly recommend and will return next time we visit Hilton Head.

    Overall poor. First the hostess was out right nasty. Then the waitress was horrible. Mixed up the order. Everything from the appetizer which came 15 minutes apart to the order we brought home which was wrong when we opened it. The excuse that they had a big party was nonsense and overall it was just terrible.

    THE PRINTER TO THE KITCHEN JAMMED AND SO WE SAT FOR 45 MINUTES AFTER ORDERING WITH NO FOOD. IT WAS PRETTY EVIDENT AS WE WERE SEATED VERY NEAR THE HOSTESS STAND AND OUR WAITPERSON AND OTHERS WERE CONSTANTLY PASSING OUR TABLE, BUT WE HAD TO ASK WHERE OUR FOOD WAS. WHEN IT CAME IT WAS FINE BUT WE SAW PEOPLE PASS OUR TABLE ON THE WAY IN AND THEN AGAIN ON THE WAY OUT. VERY FRUSTRATING.

    The food was just really not good. The kitchen goes way overboard on cheese vs adding flavor. I am not sure why this place has good reviews. Service was decent and seating was very quick with a reservation, but if you like Italian food, this is not a very good place for it.

    Waiter was very friendly and prompt. There must have been an issue with double booking with this app. My app did not show me reservations for 5:15 and 6:00 and the one check in lady was rather annoyed by it and brought it up. I apologized and said I’m sorry I don’t know why it did that and showed her it wasn’t on my phone. She said well that’s bc we already cancelled it, I said well then wouldn’t it still be showing double in my notifications. Before her interactions with me I heard her tell one of her coworkers they were getting on her nerves too. She sure wasn’t a peach.

    All of us enjoyed our dinners in the Boardroom; in there were several diners including a large table there for a celebration but the noise was moderate & we could hear the music. Patrick provided us good service & brought us a taste of the wine we weren’t familiar with. I was concerned about bringing my friends to Frankie Bones before I tried it as I had seen so many bad reviews; thankfully we left very happy. I ordered a Caesar salad & it was good, but was different as they use a Mayfair Caesar dressing which has mustard & vinegar. The veal piccata was tender & tasty, my crab cakes were delicious & I loved the creole honey mustard sauce that was on them along with a delicious side of puréed sweet potatoes and I am picky when it comes to crab cakes, no shell either. Our friends both enjoyed the fried seafood trio of shrimp, scallops & cod; they liked the light batter & said it was perfectly cooked. They also liked the skinny fries. We were too full to have dessert but they had good choices. The table near us got the s’mores; they themselves flamed them at the table & the room was filled with their sweet aroma. We would certainly go back again. We had an 8 pm reservation.

    My family and I have been to Frankie Bones many times -- and this was our first disappointing dinner. We had seven people in our party. Four people got their dinners -- and then we waited about 15 minutes for the three remaining people to get their dinners. Our waitress explained that the kitchen was busy. (I guess so.) Again, Frankie Bones has long been a favorite of ours. I trust this was a one-time glitch. We'll be back.

    Visiting the Island from South Florida and based on reviews visited this restaurant and the reviews were spot on. Service was great and food was outstanding. My wife loved her fried green tomatoes and 4oz filet. I enjoyed the escargot and prime rib which was so flavorful. My next visit will include this restaurant for sure.

    Popular place. Fun decor and music ( Sinatra and friends), food is so-so at best. We tried the broiled seafood platter and the signature coffee-rubbed steak. Very few non-alcoholic drink options, but huge drink menu otherwise. Friendly and attentive service was the highlight of the experience.

    We have eaten here a 100 times obviously good enough to do so. Last evening I ordered Fruta De Mare basically pasta with shell fish and fish. Let’s just say it was a joke. All pasta no shellfish or otherwise. I really should have mentioned such to the server but she was either worn out or checked out. Not a great evening at Frankie Bones however we will go again and order other dishes.

    It was our first visit to Frankie Bones. We travel every other year to HHI but we hadn’t found this hidden gem until this year. Our dining experience was exceptional! Our reservation was at 8:00pm. We showed 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. We were placed at a booth by the bar and our server, Katelyn (I think was her name), greeted us within 1-2 minutes of sitting down. She was very polite yet enthusiastic. She helped my husband decide between the ribeye and prime rib. He chose the ribeye and loved it. I had the crab stuffed shrimp scampi which was delicious. We enjoyed the potato stuffed spring rolls which so good. The bread was amazing. The whole experience was about an hour. Great service and food. We will definitely be back on our next visit.
