I was sent a free gift card to eat at Bonefish Grill with Hubby and Little J this past Saturday.Â You may remember my previous review of Bonefish Grill at their Virginia Beach location. While living in Florida, I ate at Bonefish Grill a few times a year, and always enjoyed the food and my experience. That VA Beach location didn’t live up to my expectations, so I wasn’t sure what to expect this time around.
Today is our first day in our new home (woohoo!) in Maryland, butÂ prior to that we were staying with friends a couple towns away. The Bonefish Grill location we reviewed is in theÂ Waugh Chapel Towne Centre in Gambrills, MD.
I’m just going to apologize right now for the photos. Part of the ambience at Bonefish Grill is dim lighting, which isn’t conducive to great photography…especially with my iPhone.
The new menu includes a Rib-Eye Steak, Bang Bang Shrimp Flatbread, Cold Snap Fresh Ceviche, Watermelon Salad, and more.
I always order the regular Bang Bang Shrimp as an appetizer and did so before I realized there’s now flatbread version! Oh well…next time.
Hubby was really considering the new Shrimp Pad Thai Bowl, but ended up ordering the new Ahi Tuna Steak instead. The steak was a wood-grilled yellowfin tuna. It included little bowls of all their signature sauce choices: the new Lime Tomato Garlic, Warm Mango Salsa, Herb Pesto, Pan Asian, and Lemon Butter. He chose the new Herbed Couscous as his side.
I almost went withÂ the new Lobster Grilled Cheese (how amazing does that sound?!), but instead ordered the Spicy Tuna Bowl. I’m a sucker for sushi. My bowl included sushi-grade, sesame-seared rare tuna;Â avocado; sweet chile sauce; jasmine rice; and passion fruit salsa.
For Little J, we ordered his fail-safe restaurant dish: chicken tenders and french fries. BonefishÂ has a great multi-page menu with coloring pages for kids to draw on, as well as crayons to do so. Also, the table cloth is made of paper, so Little J loves to go to town drawing all over it.
When we eat out, we usually skip dessert, but this time we couldn’t resist the new S’mores Flatbread- creamy chocolate, toasted marshmallows, with sliced almonds, and sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. Looks delish, doesn’t it?
Thoughts on the new menu:
I was much more impressed this time around. I really enjoyedÂ my Spicy Tuna Bowl. Between the sweet chili sauce and passion fruit salsa, it had a lot of flavor. Hubby loved his Ahi Tuna Steak, and so did I (obviously, I had to test his out too, right?). The tuna steak is worth going back for, in my opinion! Hubby liked his tuna steak dipped in the Pan Asian sauce, but I preferred the Herb Pesto. I’ve already mentioned the other new menu items that we were considering, and I would definitely like to try those down the road (date night, maybe). The S’mores Flatbread was delicious and a big enough serving to share. All in all…my faith in Bonefish Grill has been restored.
To see the full new Bonefish Grill menu, as well as locations visit their website at www.bonefishgrill.com. And don’t worry; if you’re not a seafood fan, there are beef, chicken, and all-veggie options.
Have you eaten at Bonefish Grill? What dish would you like to try off the new menu?
Note: I received a free gift card to visit Bonefish Grill and try out their new menu. I was not otherwise compensated for this post.
I think we may have to move somewhere that has a Bonefish Grill because those pictures are amazing and everything sounds delicious! I think we would eat there every night!
I love, love, love Bonefish!! Can’t wait to try the spicy tuna bowl and the Bang Bang Shrimp flatbread!
We don;t have a Bonefish near me, but boy the food sure looks good!
I have never been to a Bonefish Grill before but that food looks GREAT! I would try the Bang Bang Shrimp for sure.
I went here for the first time on Saturday and loved it. This is the first one opened in NY. Will definitely go back.
I haven’t been to Bonefish Grill in what seems like forever! I need to convince my husband to go so we can check out the new menu!
I saw a BoneFish Grill while I was visiting Pennsylvania. The S’mores flatbread would definitely be tempting!
The food looks and sounds so delicious. This menu is sure to be a big hit with customers.
I’ve never been to a Bonefish Grill before, but their new menu sounds great. I’d love to try the Bang Bang Shrimp.
Hubby and I actually ate here for our wedding anniversary and it wasn’t too bad. Not sure if we’ll go back anytime soon since we like visiting other restaurants but I’m sure we will one day.
All of this food looks amazing! I would love to eat here … especially the s’mores dessert ðŸ˜‰
Oh we have been wanting to try Bonefish! We love bloomin brands ðŸ™‚
Everything looks delicious! We have one close by and I haven’t tried it yet but I will soon.
