We spend 4-6 weeks in Williamsburg every year and we always make a point to get here. It's our favorite chain restaurant and the staff in Williamsburg is great.

We ate here on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was very busy. Looks like they get a good bar crowd for happy hour. The service was very good and our food arrived quickly, albeit almost a bit too quickly. Both of our fish dishes were excellent. This was our first experience at a Bone Fish Restaurant and we were...

With all the great restaurants in Williamsburg, don't waste your time here. We waited well over a half hour for our first drink(place was not crowded) and another ridiculous amount of time for simple appetizers. Although the food was tasty it was cold and the Martinis were returned because they lacked any trace of alcohol. No, I don't recommend this... More

Great restarant ... menu was decent, with plenty of choice. you can't eat hetre without the bang bang shrimp - wonderful !! Tuna was great too .... there is a feeling of the 'grey dollar' in here, so be careful if you are a younger group but we had a great night .. so no complaints

We called for a reservation on a Saturday evening. When we arrived we were told it would be a twenty minute wait. After waiting forty minutes and enduring a high noise level, we left. The place was very crowded with people waiting inside and out, tables very close together, and super noisy. If I can't hear the person I'm with,... More

My wife and I dined with carryout food from Bonefish Grill. Getting carryout allows us to enjoy great food in our own great atmosphere, while avoiding the often-too-high cost of in-restaurant wine. Unfortunately, seafood does not seem to travel as well as Italian food does. Found the carryout food rather soggy and not as good as one would hope. Seeing... More

This visit was the second time we went for dinner and our order was misplaced. The food was very good but they cannot handle busy hours. It will be a long time before we will consider returning for dinner

First of all, let me say that this is not my first time visiting a Bonefish Grill; but it was my first time at the Williamsburg location. We wanted a nice dining ambiance during a relatively dld and rainy night - and we found it! Our waiter was excellent! He told us that we could order an appetizer and add... More

We enjoyed a pleasant dinner, though slow with a new server. My one friend had fish and chips, excellent. I had Mahi Mahi Oscar. The fish was great but the topping was watery. My other friend had shrimp and scallops, good, but cold. To their credit, the manager comped the meal. So while not our best Bonefish experience, we will... More

My wife and I came for dinner after the movies. As we approached the front desk for seating, our favorite server Tulio saw us and asked the front desk man to seat us at his booth. Tulio took great care of our needs and is super friendly! Our Bang-Bang Shrimp were delicious, as always, and the bread with oil was... More
