One of our favorite places! The bread is warm and perfect, the salad fresh and crisp. We have tried a lot of entrees and have never been disappointed. My steak was perfectly done and the prime rib was excellent. Great place.

Service was outstanding! Food was awesome as usual! Only problem...was food wasn’t hot. My wife had the chicken with penne and I had the meatballs. Meatballs were awesome. Tasted great! The only thing was the meatballs were not hot and really neither was the pasta. Didn’t want to complain because we were on a time schedule to be somewhere else afterwards. Just thought you would want to know.

Looks to be an old favorite that is in need of some updating. We went as a party of 5 on Thanksgiving eve. It was quite vibrant with people. After a few questions about the menu we went with the recommendations of the waitress, who was quick and not very personable. Without getting into detail the food, flavors and size portions would have been better at an Italian chain! We are not fans of chain restaurants and always seek out local favorites and off the beaten path restaurants but in this case we missed the mark and paid a lot of money for a touristy place. Sorry Frankie Bones.

Single at the bar. Largely ignored, poured three drinks, didn’t care for any of them. The sour mix was undrinkable.
Locals place. If you aren’t a local, you have to wave the bartenders down.

Good food. Very slow service. Kitchen seemed overwhelmed. I
Don’t think it was the waitresses fault, but it took a long time to get our food.

We live on HHI. Decided to give FB a try. We were seated in a back room w/o any ambience. Pictures of the “rat pack” around us and loud music. I think the main dining room would have been better. We were like the “overflow” parking. Very good, hot food served. Probably won’t return.

Hi Carolyn, Although all of our tables are part of our rotation, we do have many of our guests the request booths, near the bar, away from the bar, and some request stand alone tables in The Boardroom. We do hope you will try us again, we are always happy to do our best to make our guests comfortable and happy! Just let us know if you have a seating preference. :)

Great food and service. Maybe a little too noisy but not the restaurants fault-the patrons seem to want to talk over everyone vs amongst themselves. Look forward to new opening in Bluffton.

Our group of four were in a private dining area, with one other couple. It was quiet so a great area to visit with friends. Dave was our waiter. He was very attentive and accommodating. Food and drinks were excellent. The only negative, our out of state guests requested mahi-mahi and they had sold out.

We enjoy all of the Serg restaurants. Our last visit was to Frankie Bones for a Saturday night date night with my wife. The meals were very good (Veal for both of us) and the service was also good (David, I think). I have always felt that this restaurant provides a very good meal at a reasonable price.

Frankie Bones always used to be our go to place on the island, however they have slipped some over the last year. Portions are smaller, service has dropped from outstanding to good (never used to see an empty glass) and less welcoming on special occasions. Always used to make a big deal out of birthdays and anniversaries, but no longer do anything special.

We ate on covered patio with our dog, pleasant atmosphere. Service was efficient but with huge attitude. Food was fair to good, but for the price, rating food fair overall. Nothing was impressive. Huge menu, nice theme, but...wouldn't go back.

Great restaurant. Went for the early dining menu which has a great number of options. The chicken parmigiana was excellent and plentiful. The prime rib was tasty although on the thin side (still plenty of food with the accompaniments).

All of the meals were excellent as usual, except for my husband’s. He ordered the special- Ahi Tuna. Was terrible sent it back and ordered something else, which came out perfect. The restaurant took care of the issue immediately.

The only other thing was that I had mentioned when making the reservation that it was my husband’s birthday. Nothing was done to celebrate that. No little cupcake or small piece of complimentary cake. I thought this was unusual
