Description: Frankie Bones Restaurant and Lounge "Steaks, Chops, Seafood, and Wiseguys" Step through the revolving door and into a swanky restaurant with all the style of the Rat Pack era. Big booths, soft lighting and snappy service will take you back to the 50's and 60's big city lounges of Chicago, Las Vegas and New York. The huge Italian – American menu has something for everyone! Hand cut steaks, chicken and veal dishes, fresh seafood, pastas, flatbread pizzas, and housemade desserts! Serving lunch and dinner daily, and our fabulous Brunch every Sunday!

“Consistent excellence with great variety”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

On a recent visit to Hilton Head Island, SC recently, we once again visited Frankie Bones. Though the service was a bit spotty this time, (it appears they have several new staff members that are still trying to "get it down"), the food was again excellent. There is a large variety of items on the menu (ought to be something for just about anyone) but the kitchen consistently executes with panache. One of the few restaurants that seems to get it right every time, the first time around. Hot foods piping hot, cold foods appropriately chilled. This restaurant is a part of the Serg Group and we have enjoyed several of their other restaurants though we think this may be their flagship. It is almost always very busy so you may wish to make a reservation. Should that not be possible, go next door to Wise Guys, another of their restaurants where the food is equally good but a bit pricier and more of a high end steak and seafood house. Either way we doubt you will be disappointed. In cooler weather dining "al fresco" on their respective patios can be very relaxing. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in the Hilton Head area but these two are clearly amongst our favorites and we think also some of the best Hilton Head has to offer. Excellence in food and service, great variety and reasonably priced.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My family and I went to Frankie Bones while we were on vacation a few weeks ago. There was no wait for a table, and they were quickly able to accomodate us with 2 high chairs. The food and drinks were delicious. The restaurant was very clean, but might have been a bit too dimly lit for my taste with children in tow. We didn't wait long for our meals. My husband got their lobster mac and cheese and said it was fantastic. Our waiter and the other servers we spoke with were all very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely go back there next time we're in town.

This is a fun place to eat. Perfect for large groups, children and anyone who is hungry. Large and varied menu. Great food. Their meatballs are awesome and the coffee marinated ribeye is fantastic. Make this a must go during your stay.
