We brought our 92 year old Aunt to Fishbones in St Clair Shores because she loves it, and we do too... so many choices on the menu and everything was delicious! Service was impeccable and took care of us very well.

Seated right on time. We had gumbo, jambalaya and coconut shrimp. All were very good as well as the service.

It took a long time to get our food which would have been fine if it wasn't cold when it arrived. My mashed potatoes were a cold mound and inedible, my mother's baked potatoes was cold and undercooked, and the waitress brought her the wrong vegetable. For the money it could have been much better.

This was a birthday party for my grandson and it was delightful we especially loved our waitress Richelle, she was very attentive and cheerful and checked on us often. We love that little room and was so glad that we were able to have it. The rolls are delicious. Thanks for everything.

The service was slow and the food was
lukewarm. Did not appreciate the tip being added for a party of 4. We always tip a minimum of 20%, however, since less was added without notification we left what was added. We had a less than expected experience.

This was the worst restaurant meal we've ever eaten! The Thanksgiving meal was served cold, the turkey was sliced very this and was v ery dry. The so called pumpkin pie was inedible; it tasted like a mushy, raw pile of cinnamon and clove; so gross! I will ot be eating at this place again. Such a disappointment as we were so looking forward to a relaxing, delicious holiday meal out for a change.

The waitress was ghetto as hell, she kept coming to my table over 25 times for nothing! ( I guess she wanted to be seen). The food was cold and after complaining, we finally received warm food

I made reservations, they were not busy when we arrived and we were seated right by the restrooms. Learned that some items on the menu were no longer available. Substitution of Scalloped potatoes to replace red skins was okay but the scalloped potatoes were less then acceptable. Salmon was good by the sauce on the plate was very salty.

I made the reservation on OpenTable. When we showed up to the restaurant they were working in the parking lot, it was blocked off, and there was a sign in front of the door saying closed. Such an inconvenience.

Everything was amazing. Portions were good sizes.
They only had 1 chef working and he did amazing, quick service.
Only thing I didn’t like was the salads came out at the same time as the entrees

It’s always a pleasure to eat at Fishbones. Things changed since the Pandemic, but we still always have a nice experience at the Fishbones in Saint Clair Shores. Our server yesterday was outstanding. I wish I knew her name, but she was attentive and very good at her job! Thank you for that.

This is the usual Fishbones restaurant I dine at but on Sunday, September 5, 2021 my family and I received the worst service ever. We sat down at 3:42pm and a waiter didn’t tend to our table until 3:54. She took our whole order and soon returned with our drinks and our appetizer (no water). A group then sits down behind us at about 4:05pm. They received water and bread after 2 mins of sitting and around 4:37pm they receive there food. A different group sits down about 4:20pm and received there food by 4:55pm. My family and I still haven’t received our meals. We see others being seated and greeted with a hostess within 2-5mins of sitting. I asked for a manager and he asked what the problem was and then directs the waitress to cash us out for what we have already had (appetizer and drinks). That is all that is said, the waitress does apologize, smiles and walks away. I then speak with the manager at the door before leaving, she apologizes and smilies as well. But my children and I are leaving a restaurant we’ve sat at for over 90 mins, hungry. I ask for the corporate number from the manager, Kelly, she gives me the wrong number. I am highly disgusted with the service I received from this establishment. It’s not the fact of receiving something for free, because paying for our meal was far from the issue. It’s the fact that as a customer, I was disappointed with my service and after spending 90mins here, I have to leave hungry. This is very disheartening especially when my 5 year old feels he’s been mistreated, as do I! I have the correct number to corporate now and will call them on the week day. Because this is unacceptable.

Fishbone,s now automatically adds 15% gratuity to your bill, we actually gave the waitperson double by accident.

Be careful!

What if the service was not worth it?

The server (young lady) was very nice and was able to explain any question we had. She also was accommodating with the bar when they were out of specific ingredients. We were placed close to other families, which took away some of the intimate atmosphere.

Grew up going to Fishbones and it’s definitely not the same. If you have a problem removing a item from the bill in which a customer didn’t consume and felt sick by the smell of, maybe you shouldn’t be open. Horrible service didn’t even get one refill. Crab meat and blu cheese weren’t fresh and the manager was an a-hole about it, won’t be returning

The only issue with my meal was that my filet was undercooked. I requested medium and was served rare. When the waitress returned I requested that a new steak be cooked to medium. The steak was returned while I was in the restroom and the rest of my party was done eating and starting dessert. A take out box came along with my steak. I put the steak in the box for later and when I got home I noticed this filet was also rare once I cut into it. For an expensive meal, I was very underwhelmed that I didn’t get to enjoy dinner with the rest of the table while waiting and that the second steak wasn’t even cooked properly.
