The first Bonefish Restaurant opened in January 2000 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The goal was to offer a dining experience that takes the mystery and uncertainty out of eating fish. Bonefish Restaurant strives to find the freshest ingredients cooked over a wood-fired grill to create healthy options that please everyone.

The Bonefish Restaurant does not post or publish nutritional information for its full menu. Ask a staff member for nutrition data on the menu items that interest you. Many restaurants will have a kitchen staff member available to assist you with making healthy choices if a printed copy of the nutritional data is not available.
Several of the Bonefish Restaurant entrée items are large portions. This holds true for many of the pasta dishes. Request a take-out container when your food arrives at the table so you can split the portion in half to take home. Eating only half of a dinner entrée allows you to enjoy the meal while saving calories and fat.
