Bonefish Mac’s adds seafood twist to normal sports bar vibe
B onef i sh Mac ’s S por t s Grille is a sports bar, so the menu offers the usual wings, sandwiches, burgers etc. But unlike most similar places, there is an emphasis on seafood. The extensive menu also includes salads, pasta and vegetarian options, so one should find something to like.
Yup! It’s a sports bar so there are TVs and it can get loud, especially on the patio. We tried to go there on a Friday but decided to pass because the wait was too long and the noise a bit too much. This time we picked a Sunday and though the patio was loud, inside was a much calmer space. The marinethemed decor is a nice touch that definitely adds to the slightly rustic vibe.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
We decided to go with seafood options — the “Grand 10880 Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, 561-798-6227 Hours: Mon.-Thurs., 11 a.m.-1 a.m.; Fri.- Sat., 11 a.m.-2 a.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-midnight Note: Post writers will anonymously visit a restaurant in your neighborhood each week in search of the best menu item. They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week. Slam” Fried Seafood Combo ($19.94) and the Drunken Sailor Pasta ($18.99). The Grand Slam platter featured battered white fish, crab cake, clam strips and fried shrimp and was way too much food for one pers on. The pas t a di sh had scallops, shrimp and mahi tossed in an a la vodka sauce served over penne pasta. It was served with a house or Caesar salad. Though the fried goodness was what we expected, we preferred the pasta because all the elements worked really well and it wasn’t too salty. The generous portions meant that lunch was all set for the following day.
REASON TO GO
The extensive menu and the sports bar vibe, if that’s your thing, are definite reasons to check out this spot.
Our server seemed a little distracted initially, but overall was professional and helpful.
Inside was quiet on the Sunday we visited, so we could have a conversation without raising our voices.
There is a menu for children 10 and younger that includes hot dog, burger and grilled cheese sandwich.
It’s that time of year for pumpkins and pine cones, homemade crafts and holiday décor.
