I don’t usually critique chain restaurants, but Bonefish Grill (owned by the corporation that started up the hugely successful Outback) deserves a mention. I’ve been to five or six throughout the country and only one, in Iowa, was not particularly good.

On the Mississippi Coast, if you’re looking for consistently fresh seafood that’s not fried and comes at a reasonable price, stop at Bonefish Grill in Biloxi. This eatery is kind to the dieter. Grouper is excellent as is Norwegian salmon. There’s a variety of sauces to choose from. They have an unusual vegetable medley of tomatoes, sliced red and yellow peppers, a dollop of spinach and two kinds of squash. If seafood is not your thing, try their steaks; their Outback steak savvy makes a beef entrĂ©e a winning choice. Meals are served with a basket of warm sour dough bread and a dish of olive oil sprinkled with cheese.

Try the starter menu if you don’t have a big appetite. You can make a meal out of such items as Bang Bang Shrimp, crab cakes or Mussels Josephine. They have a great wine list and interesting cocktail menu. Good happy hour. I recommend sitting in the lounge area at a booth. Smoking is permitted there, however. Menus vary by location. Check out their website for full menu and prices. Service is good.© 2009

I've been to the BoneFish Grill in Biloxi and Panama City and both had excellent seafood and nice atmosphere.

Last night January 6th, 2012 My wife and I visited Bonefish Biloxi and we waited as did three other couples for the Hostess to finish texting, smiling at us periodically as she did so. We went to the bar to have dinner as another couple tired of it all and left. Poorly managed restaurant. Don F
