Frankie Bones has been one of our favorite restaurants on the Island for many years. Great food, wonderful service, and good value. Everyone can find something to order which makes it ideal for groups.

Fabulous food- We had the lobster mac, coffee steak, fish basket, and chicken parm. The food was really good. Everything was cooked perfectly. The desserts were amazing. I did not know that carrot cake with alcohol on it could be so good.

This was our first visit to Frankie Bones and the meal (mostly ) did not disappoint. My husband had the Turkey (he usually loves Turkey) but he complained that it was dry. Would be nice to have dark meat Turkey option. The steak and Thanksgiving sides were incredible!

A great place for Thxgiving. We’ve been to FB many times & were happy they held up for this holiday. Our waitress was the best! She took care of all of our needs with a smile. We were sure to thank her for working on Thxgiving. She said we were the only ones to thank her for that. Please thank her again for us. One of our favorites!

Our party of six enjoyed a nice dinner on Thanksgiving. We had a reservation, so were seated right away. It was very busy yet our service was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

Kind of disappointing. Other than the service, just average. We’ve been coming here regularly around this time of year. Apps were pretty good, though cheesy garlic bread crust couldn’t be cut with even a steak knife. Signature chicken noodle soup was bland. Six entrees, three were good: veal Marsala, ribeye and prime rib. Other three pasta dishes were disappointing. Hope things get back to what made this one of our favorites.

Super slow service. We sat outside in the covered, heated patio area which was better than expected. Maybe our location had something to do with the extremely slow service. The food was excellent.

The service was slow at best. We waited almost an hour for our entrees. No one even apologized. The room was noisy. We were there in the dummer and had a great dinner but not last night. It will be a good long while before we come back

This particular dining experience was for brunch. Their specialty is the two types of quiches made on Sundays and I had the meat dish which was a large portion and delicious! Hubby had the chicken and waffle special as well. Both were excellent as well as a generous pour Mimosa!

Things started out badly when they tried to seat us in two totally undesirable areas. Our server did a good job, but the flow of the meal was not good between the appetizer and main course. My wife’s salmon was overcooked and flavorless and my crab filled shrimp scampi was soggy. It was not a good experience, and we probably won’t give it another try.

Food was great. Service was poor. Our waitress didn’t check on us at all towards end of meal. We gave up and didn’t order more drinks or dessert.

We eat here every time we are in Hilton Head, three time this year. This visit was not so good. We had reservations and were still placed in a back room by the managers office and staff rest area. It felt like we we not even in the restaurant but in a time out desert some place. My wife's filet was supposed to be an 8 oz steak and looked like a 4 of 5 oz. It was dry and unappealing for $39. it was a total waste of money. My veal was ok but lacked enough Marcella sauce to make it tasty. It was also room temperature and not anywhere close to the quality we have come to expect from this establishment.
We understand that everyone is blaming COVID for the lack of staff, poor service, and poor quality food but they should limit their reservations to professionally handle only the amount of people they have staff for. This will definitely be the last time we eat here for a long time to come!

Cool little restaurant. Our ravioli appetizer was perfectly cooked and crispy. Fried green tomatoes were forgettable, but I enjoyed my spaghetti with “made” meatballs (they were huge and tasty). My husband has the combo and enjoyed it as well. Service was great by Nicky. She gave us just the right about of attention and was very nice.

Prompt drinks and salad deliveries, but entrees a little slow. Understand it was a busy nite. Had to send check back to separate as requested two times earlier. Overall very good, but a little off compared to previous visits.

Fantastic as always!! We came for my birthday! We all ordered specials for the day and they were all beyond great!! The two appetizers were very good also. Cara was our server and was very attentive to our needs and couldn’t have been any better. And a big slice of cheesecake with a candle was the best I’ve ever had!!! Thanks for a special birthday dinner!
