Bonefish Grill makes a splash

Bonefish’s Bang Bang Shrimp tacos are in a soft taco shell and have lettuce and tomatoes on top of the tacos. The Bang Bang shrimp is one of Bonefish’s most famous dishes.

Bonefish Grill is the perfect place to have a filling lunch or to go out to a formal dinner. Located in Bel Air and attached to the Harford Mall, the location is ideal and easy to reach.

I walked in to dim lights and walls covered with classy decorations. The atmosphere is formal, but not so formal that you need to dress up. As I entered, the hostess immediately offered to seat me in an open booth or table (my choice).

The service at Bonefish was professional, and my waitress was always on hand to refill drinks and ask how the food was. After I ordered my drink, she happily answered my questions about the options on the menu.

Bonefish has two menus, one for brunch and one for dinner. I went during brunch, and the menu had a wide variety of seafood options, including dishes where seafood was incorporated into tacos or French toast. I decided to order the Bang Bang Shrimp tacos. Bonefish’s Bang Band Shrimp tacos come in a soft shell with lettuce and tomatoes and is one of Bonefish’s most well-known menu items.

After I ordered, the waitress brought out warm bread with olive oil. The bread had a crispy outside but warm inside and was the perfect start to the meal. After eating the bread the food came right out. My tacos were paired with a spring mix salad. The Bang Bang Shrimp was spicy, but not too hot that it ruined the tacos. The vinaigrette dressing on the salad tied the tacos and the salad together nicely.

The prices at Bonefish are not cheap, but the quality of the food justifies the price. Bonefish is the ideal restaurant to visit if you are looking for a pricier-but-delicious meal and professional service.
