I ordered the pasta trifecta which looked like leftovers dumped on a plate but tasted okay--not good.

We made our reservation thru OpenTable and it worked perfect. Our table was ready when we got there. The place was pretty busy.

The food was great and Connor our waiter did a great job and handled our food drinks and billing perfectly.

We will return.

Frankie Bones Bluffton is nearly as good as HHI establishment, but lacks a little of the atmosphere. The food was great and service very good. Would recommend to aanyone. Worth the drive from HHI.

I had made reservations because we had out of town visitor and we were never disappointed with food or service. However, this time I can honestly say after bragging about the food and service along with ambience. We were very disappointed. Food was not that great and sitting in a hallway booth was not my idea of letting our visitor get the restaurant ambience. Ordered chicken piccata and the server brought veal piccata. Frankie Bones never disappointed us but last evening we felt it was very subpar.

My wife and I went for a late lunch. The food was good, the service was okay, and the atmosphere was ok. Mostly it is just pictures of actors, etc on the wall. In total though, we were happy with the meal.

I had the Pork Schnitzel and it was incredible. My husband said spaghetti and meatballs were bland. Service was good, except we should have been offered parmesan cheese with the pasta...I had to find someone to bring it to us.

I also thought the timing could have been improved. I was about halfway through my salad when our dinners arrived, and the table was crowded with plates. It also felt a bit rushed. The Wedge Salad would be perfection if the dressing were just a bit lighter.

Overall, quite good food and wine, reasonably priced.

My meal was just ok . Been a customer for a long time , and have to say this time the experience wasn't that great . Ordered the pork , and it was very tough , could barely cut it with a knife . Ordered fries instead of mashed potatoes , and that got screwed up, and I got the mashed. potatoes. My friend ordered salmon , and she said it had no taste. Apparently it was supposed to come with some kind of sauce , but they forgot to put it on . All in all , kind of a waste of money . Going to think twice before I come back again.

I like Frankie Bones. The food menu is expansive without being obnoxious. There is something for everyone on the wine list, including some nice surprises. The fish and pasta are properly cooked. A requested filet done rare arrives just that way. The dessert menu will certainly satisfy any degree of sweet tooth. The ambience and noise level might receive better ratings, but we eat outside due to COVID. We’ll try the inside after booster availability.

My wife and I made a reservation at Frankie Bones in Bluffton S.C. Upon entering we were greeted by 2 very polite young ladies who took care of our reservation and seated right away. Within a minute our waiter was at the table and did all the right things. We soon had our drinks and placed the order for dinners. The food came out hot and a nice presentation. The veal was great and her Salmon Oscar the same. We have been there 4-5 times in the last couple months and it always is good....

Liked the food & waitress. But we did have a problem getting seated proper. We had reservations for 5:00. Told them it was our anniversary and was seated in a small 2 booth in the bar area right next to bar where it was very loud. Then we asked to be moved which they did to another small 2 booth. When asked why we couldn't have a table on otherwise was told where the people right before us were seated was told because they had a reservation. I also had a reservation and was finally seated at a bigger booth after 2 previous seats.

We enjoyed our dining experience once again. The food and service were absolutely fine, as expected.

Our table was very small. We had to have the rest of our App wrapped-there was not enough table room for everything-but that was ok, we understand busy Saturday evenings.

We are 35 years local and we’ll be back again soon. Cheers.

Frankie's is usually pretty good and this evening was no different. Food and service is always above average. My husband loved his lobster and said it was excellent. Wish we could eat inside but it's nice to have the patio option.

4 stars instead of 5 for food because the Caesar salad dressing was definitely not Caesar dressing, and the cannoli was not great.
One more thing-please ask your hostesses not to refer to guests as, "you guys."

Came for Early Bird dinner. Price has gone up, but what hasnt?
Ordered trout, which was excellent, came with salad and mashed potatoes.
Price is $18.00, some glass of 4lbs was only $4.00, which was reasonable.
