Fishbones is casual dining, with a bar as well as bar top tables with very comfortable chairs. The wait staff is fun and very informed regarding their menu items. The fresh peel n eat shrimp are incredible, variety of wine and beer, and plenty of options on the menu. I had the pork tenderloin quesadilla, which was delicious, and my... More

Decided to stop by on a Friday night during date night to check the place out and it was absolutely delicious!!! Everything was fresh and full of flavor! We started out with the sweet chili wings(I like to try everyone's wings), I normally don't like breaded wings but these were very flavorful and delightfully tasteful! I ordered the jumbo shrimp...

We hadn't been here in years and years and years. One and done as we were not impressed. I often see a friend post pictures of her meals here and loves the place. So off we go to give it a try and are we glad we did! We were seated immediately as there were only two tables available and... More

It is a small local venue that has great food and service. I had the oysters along with black and green beans and wasabi coleslaw. This was an excellent dinner. The beer selection is pretty good but a little limited on the draft menu. It is a small neighborhood style Bar and Grill. I recommend it if this is the... More

My Girlfriend and I come here almost every weekend to have their Tuna Tacos, we think the best in Greensboro. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive to getting our order just the way we want. Their beer selection is very good with a few rotating taps and the wine selection will not disappoint. They do have specials which... More

the fried catfish and fried oysters & shrimp were wonderful. Don't miss their shrimp & grits. The most delicious other than what I make myself.

Nice corner restaurant with a caged patio and a couple high tables inside with a nice fish tank straight to the back. While in the city for a conference we stumbled upon this place for lunch between training breaks. I ordered the Salmon Cesar (Salmon Blacken) which came out looking amazing. However keep in mind everything that look good isn't... More

Went for dinner, our first time there. It has always been crowded when we've tried before, and got in! We met another couple, ordered drinks, the server finally came back with our drinks, so we ordered, and it "seemed" like a long time before we were served, but let me tell you, it was darn well worth the wait! Blackened... More

instead a cool hip local neighborhood restaurant offering a nice selection of fish dishes. I particularly liked the fried oysters and my cioppino was nice, except for the rubbery piece of cod ! Service was very friendly and prices more than reasonable. They also have a great selection of beers. It's not smart, jeans & t-shirts are the wear of... More
