We got a coupon in our Sunday paper for $8 off any two entrees at Bonefish Grill. We hadn’t been there in awhile, and I’d been craving some Bang Bang Shrimp.
I started with a glass of their Blackberry Red Sangria – it was actually a bit too sweet even for me. I really should just stick with getting sangria at Ceviche.
We split the Tay’s Wedge Salad with tomatoes, bleu cheese crumbles, chives, crispy onions, and bleu cheese dressing. It was very generous with the bleu cheese and was a nice size to share as a starter.
Since we had to get two entrees for our coupon, we skipped the normal Bang Bang appetizer and instead ordered the Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos served with house made chips. If you like their normal spicy & crunchy shrimp, you’ll love the tacos – served with lettuce, tomato, and sour cream. And the homemade chips were great once we added a little salt.
We picked the perfect night because Tuesdays they have a special lobster menu right now! We went to Maine a little over a year ago, and neither of us had lobster since that trip. We decided to give their Lobster Roll Sliders a try (they were only $8.90, which is pretty reasonable for 2 sliders plus fries). For a lobster dish outside of New England, it was pretty tasty. Although I don’t think anything can beat what we had in Maine.
If we had more room (and if we hadn’t just eaten so much the previous week on vacation) I would have tried their Pumpkin Crème Brûlée. But we were good that night and resisted the temptation to get dessert.
I think it’s definitely worth going to check out their latest menu – especially if you are free on a Tuesday. I also saw online that they have “Bang Bang Wednesday” which features their signature shrimp on served on flatbread, tacos, burgers, and steaks.
