I'm a sucker for seafood so my love and I took a trip out to Jacksonville Beach to visit the recently remodeled and revitalized Bonefish Grill! The upgrades to the restaurant definitely makes it the spot to be after work any night of the week! The decor is sleek and sophisticated and the ambiance is very warm and welcoming. Can you say mood lighting?!?!
Let me start by saying that you can not go to Bonefish Grill and not get the often replicated but never duplicated, Bang Bang Shrimp!!! It is a must! The shrimp are so succulent and the crispy outside is nicely coated with the creamy sauce that has a little kick to it! It's very good and you get lots of it for an appetizer! One more thing...on Wednesdays, or shall I say "Bang Wednesdays" you can get these bad boys for $6 bucks!
Per the recommendation of our waitress, we also ordered the
Thai Coconut Shrimp which were amazing! Crunchy, sweet, savory, and another decadent appetizer! I knew that if the appetizers were this great, dinner would be spot on!
Besides the new renovations, Bonefish also has some new wood grilled items! My boyfriend ordered the Wood-grilled Chilean Sea Bass with green beans and jasmine rice.
The sea bass had wonderful texture and you could definitely taste a hint of oak. The best part is that it was topped with shrimp and blistered tomatoes. I snuck a shrimp when he wasn't looking!
I chose one of the fall specials, The Wild-Caught King Salmon. It was perfectly grilled and topped with sauteed spinach, bacon, and blue cheese. YUMMM! It also came with spaghetti squash and my choice of side which was the amazing garlic mashed potatoes! I loved how large my portion of salmon was. Definitely worth every cent.
Last but not least was dessert! It's not often that we indulge in dessert when dining out mostly because we're stuffed after appetizers and dinner. However, we saw the dessert the couple next to us ordered and couldn't resist. Jen's Jamaican Coconut Pie!
A creamy coconut custard drizzled with a decadent rum sauce, and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. It was sinful!
We enjoyed our evening at Bonefish! The service was wonderful and the new design of the restaurant created the perfect ambiance for date night! Our food was amazing and we definitely look forward to our next visit! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
