We were sad it was our last night with my niece and her husband who live in Chicago and had joined us for a holiday at our villa on Highlands Reserve and we wanted to go somewhere special. We had remembered Bonefish Grill on the 192 in Kissimmee from a previous visit several years ago and decided to re-visit. It was a Sunday night and it was easy to get a table. The restaurant was quiet so we were very surprised that we had to wait 15 minutes for our drinks order to be taken when the manager came over and apologised profusely and indicated that our appetizers would be on the house.

My brother in law remembered the Corn Chowder with lump crab and he and my Mum both thoroughly enjoyed it. My niece and husband shared a bowl of the Spicy calamari (good job – it was a huge bowl), my sister enjoyed the Edamame beans (very unusual as they come in the pod and have to be sucked out, but delicious) and I went for the Ahi Tuna Sashimi sushi which was so tasty and tender. All this was accompanied by two loaves of hot ciabatta bread and pesto oil which we could have made a meal of!
Service was very attentive from now on and after a short time our main courses arrived.

Mum does not have a huge appetite and was more than happy with her appetizer-sized portion of Bang Bang shrimp with a side order of broccoli. My niece had the main course bowl version of my tuna sashimi. Her husband had the fish and chips – three huge pieces of cod in a wonderful crisp batter – good job he has a big appetite! My sister really enjoyed her lobster stuffed shrimps and I didn’t need asking twice to try my brother in laws Filet Mignon – it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. But I couldn’t not have fish and settled on the Georges Bank Scallop and Shrimp grilled with lemon butter; six scallops and six shrimp served with creamy potatoes au gratin and broccoli and was so glad I had. Nobody had room for dessert but Mum decided she could not leave without being persuaded to try a bowl of ice cream. Shame really, the Coconut pie with rum sauce sounded amazing.

We all agreed that the food was of an equal quality to some of the best restaurants we had ever eaten in and an absolute bargain in price. We had a cocktail each, a bottle of wine and three beers and the total bill for six came to just over $200. The appetizers would have added a further $40 but again we felt that was more than good value. Despite the slight blip with the waiting time at the start of the evening, we declared the experience a resounding success and will certainly be back on our next trip…. I have my eyes on Surf and Turf Eggs Benedict and Crème Brulee French Toast at their Sunday Brunch!
