The rating would have been higher, but one of the four entrees ordered came out of the kitchen wrong, and it took quite a bit of time to replace it.

I think Frankie bones has the best bread I’ve ever tasted.
The food is consistently wonderful.
If you haven’t tried their cold antipasto platter, do so!

We reserved a table for four outside and were seated promptly. I have to say overall it was a pleasant experience. However, I think the Hilton Head Frankie Bones has more ambience. We enjoyed the food. Due to the restaurant being rather busy, the only complaint we have is that my wife's salad was delivered at the same time as her meal. I would recommend going here for dinner but also try the Hilton Head version of the restaurant to get a better 50's vibe.

Comedy of errors. Two of us ordered medium rare Prime Rib, one can medium well done and one was well done. An attempt was made to correct, next go round, one well done and one closer to medium. Sent back the well done and the other was way too salty so we traded in for a filet medium rare and a pasta dish.

Pasta dish was good and my rare filet was well done and a half. I ate the tasteless piece of well done meat.
Meals were taken off the bill, but, kind of ruined the whole evening. A shame, but, no ordering of meat there for a while

This is the blandest Italian food I have ever eaten. I was looking for a salt shaker, but none were to be found because of Covid restrictions. The bread before the meal was the highlight of the meal. Service was good, the music in the restaurant was perfect for an Italian restaurant.

Treated like very special guests. Meaghan was our server and she was lovely and very prompt. Ben treated us to an anniversary dessert which was wonderful. Superior at a very modest price, great value.

The veal was very dry and overcooked. The pasta was under cooked and the sauce was not good.

Did not like as much as hilton head. The service at the hilton head location was impeccable. Service here just soso. Two ribeyes, asked for medium. They both had too much char, as well as only medium rare inside. We were glad this location had a reservation available because hilton head did not.

The food is amazing!! This was now our 3rd time at the Bluffton location ( 2 dine in, 1 take out). Although I was a little disappointed with the service on my 1st dining experience, this time was completely different. The service was impeccable, the wait staff and management treated us as if we were the only diners in the room. The food courses were well-timed, and cooked exactly as we ordered them.

Excellent food was had by all of us as usual from this restaurant. Menu is very extensive so one can certainly find something to meet their taste buds for the evening. The signature ribeye was outstanding and cooked perfectly. Prime rib was also cooked perfectly and very tasty. Other two had fish dishes which they said were great. Two grandkids had standard dishes from the kids menu. Service was friendly, but slow and less than attentive which was interesting since the regular waiter was training someone.

First dinner out since pre-virus, so it was a treat. We had outdoor seating and the tables were well-spaced. Our sever was excellent and her trainee did a great job, too! Only service miss was that neither offered me a second glass of wine, even though my glass was almost empty when the entree was served. Fried green tomato salad was very good, although the breading on the tomatoes was too crunchy, probably too hot oil. Nice presentation and I will order again. My husband had his favorite meatball app, always a winner. Entrees were veal scallopini and clams, scallops and shrimp over angel hair pasta with white sauce. Both were super. Frankies is one of our go to places. Something on the menu for everyone.

Had there been more social distancing, I would have given Frankie Bones 5 stars. It was elbow to elbow at the bar. Some employees wore masks, most did not. It is my personal opinion that restaurants need to be more concerning as far as COVID-19. We will return at a later date.

Our party of 4 ordered Schnitzel; 2 Prime Rib; Petite Filet; all excellent.
Also great was the escargot appetizer and the pina colada martini. Just so-so was the caesar salad. Service was superb. We will return soon!

Our food order took about an hour after we ordered our main course. The manager apologized and offered a free drink and dessert for the inconvenience. He made an effort to smooth out the situation. We had guests in from out of town and had high expectations based on our previous experiences. This was disappointing and a little embarrassing.

Everything was excellent however, the food took too long to come out. The booth next to us was compensated for their timelines but we were not. Understand that it was busy due to Fathers Day but the wait time was excessive. Especially since we had a child dining with us.

Had a 5pm reservation, but arrived at 4pm and were sat with no issues. Seating was comfortable. Service was good. Veal picatta was not the best I’ve ever had. Cocktail and spinach salad were above par. Filet was a hit!
