pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Bonefish Grill

For November, our population-we™ (pop-we) Dinner Club chose the Bonefish Grill located at 120 Regency Parkway in Omaha, Neb., for their monthly dinning experience. The Bonefish started business in St. Petersburg, Fla., with their first location in 2000 and have been spreading north and west ever since. They were set on introducing people unfamiliar with having fish to a unique dinning experience. They also offer non-fish items for those destined to never desire the fish experience.

My bride and I descended upon our Bonefish Grill shortly before the 6 p.m. reservation to find many of the group already there. The waiting area was a little cramped but it was evident that service was going to be a hallmark of the evening with waiters and hostesses tending to your needs. The free samplers while you waited were a nice touch.

Once our party had all arrived we were seated at our table and immediately the wait staff started refreshing our drinks, taking orders for appetizers, and placing the bottomless baskets of bread out for our enjoyment. The Bang Bang Shrimp is a must have.  It seemed like the Sangria was quite good also.

Being a mixed lot our group had fish and non-fish orders that ranged from the Fish Taco and Diablo Shrimp Fettuccini to the Fontina Chop and Filet Mignon. It was my pleasure to experience the Diablo Shrimp Fettuccini; this involves taking
shrimp with tomatoes, capers, onions, green chiles, spinach fettuccine and placing it with garlic cream sauce. As I’ve aged, garlic has become a favorite base for many things but this was a great, balanced, flavor combo, with each ensemble having its turn with a solo. It seemed everyone thought that their dish was the best though. As a final delight a few of the fairer sex at our table decided Creme Brulee was in order and before it was gone it was something we all had to try.

After compiling the surveys from the other
 foodies the pop-we Dinner Club gives Bonefish Grill: 4.45 star average on a scale of 1-5.

  1. Marv: Thanks for the review and joining the population-we team! Bonefish is definitely a place to dine at for those non-meat eaters. I’ve eaten there on more than one occasion and keep going back to the same dish -- Bang Bang Shrimp. The spicy kick and sweet glaze on the shrimp are a perfect complement to each other. So, I indeed recommend Bonefish’s Bang Bang Shrimp to those fish lovers out there.
