Beat the Heat of the Kitchen with Bonefish Grill Summer Specials

Thank you to Bonefish Grill for sponsoring our visit so we could share our experience with our readers.

We’re knee deep in summer, and I have to admit, when it gets hot like this, I literally get out of the kitchen.  Who wants to cook when it’s 90 degrees outside, right?  Also, my birthday recently passed; between that and the heat, it seemed like the perfect time to head over to Bonefish Grill to try out their Summer Duos menu.

Bonefish Grill Summer Duos Menu

They say two is better than one, and when you take a look at Bonefish’s summer menu, it’s hard to argue:

  • Cod Piccata & Lobster Stuffed Shrimp – $19.90
  • Wood Grilled Center-Cut 8 oz. Sirloin & Cold Water Lobster Tail – $19.90
  • Cod Piccata & Cold Water Lobster Tail – $24.90
  • Filet Mignon & Cold Water Lobster Tail – $25.90

If you’re a lobster lover, this is clearly the menu for you, plus you get a second option along with two sides.  I’m partial to their tender and delectable filet mignon, so that one was a no brainer for me.

There are other mouth-watering specials as well, like the Caribbean Style Dayboat Scallops, which are sushi-grade caramelized scallops served with fresh pineapple salsa and vanilla bean rum butter, accompanied by green beans and jasmine rice.

Let’s talk about these scallops.  These were my husband’s pick, and he’s still gushing over how fantastic they were.  To quote him, “They are the best scallops I’ve ever had in my life, and I’m from New England.”  For nearly 17 years now, I’ve been watching him order scallops whenever they’re on a menu, and I’ve never seen him react like that before.  Needless to say, he was impressed and highly recommends them.

Since it was my birthday, I decided to splurge and try one of their fancy cocktails.  Their Sparkling Blue Hawaiian is a delicious as it is pretty.

This is as close as I’m going to get to a tropical paradise this summer, and I savored every sip.  Made with rum, Blue Curacao liqueur, Coco Lopez, fresh pineapple juice, and topped with prosecco, this drink is a refreshing respite from the chaos of life.  Close your eyes, and you can almost hear the waves crashing.

Okay, I splurged twice.  Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts, so I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to try their Summer Berry Bread Pudding.

This one did not disappoint!  Bonefish Grill’s house-made brioche bread pudding is infused with Grand Marnier and orange zest, served with ice cream and the freshest summer berries, and then topped with whipped cream and salted caramel sauce.  It’s sweet and rich in the very best way, and the portion is more than large enough for sharing.

I hope it’s obvious to you that we were very pleased with the food and drinks on this trip, but I’d also like to mention that the service was exceptional too.  My family and I have actually stopped eating out as often as we used to, partly because of the expense, but it’s just as much because we are tired of being expected to pay money for the mediocre food and horrible service that seems to have become the standard at most restaurants.  Our experience at Bonefish Grill was excellent, and that’s not an exaggeration.  The food could not have been better, but the service was absolutely perfect.  Our server was friendly (lots of eye contact and smiling) and attentive, but it was more than that:  she seemed genuinely interested in making our visit the best it could be.  Now if they’d just bring back the Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, I’d eat here every week.

When you need a break from the heat of the kitchen, consider Bonefish Grill.  Their regular menu is a dependable winner, and there is always something new and delicious to try with their changing specials menu!

  1. Bonefish Grill sounds amazing. We do not have one close but I will be looking for one when we go out of town. The berries and bread pudding have me wanting a trip right now.

  2. I always hear people talking about how amazing this place is, but haven’t been able to visit one yet. Need to find one near me and tell my husband to take me out! 🙂 Thanks for the great review.

  3. My Mom used to go there when she was in Florida–but haven’t seen one around here. I would definitely enjoy that steak and lobster and I bet my Mom would be telling me where to drive her to if there was one near here. She loved it there!

  4. We have a Bonefish Grill nearby, but have never been to it. I’d love to try the scallops….they look delicious. I’ve never ordered bread pudding, but that berry bread pudding looks like a must-try!

  5. I hate turning on my stove or oven when the weather gets too hot. I have never been to a Bonefish Grill because we do not have any nearby, but I would love to try the scallops! Yummers!

  6. I would totally go here, love the idea of heading out for dinner to beat the heat. I have been cooking crazy lately and it gets way too hot in the home during summer season to cook. I love this place, wish it was closer as they have some awesome specials!

  7. I love seafood but hate cooking it! This looks like an excellent place to satisfy my seafood craving!
