Met some friends for dinner, drinks, and entertainment. Beer selection was good. Our group enjoyed burgers, shrimp salad sandwiches, turkey burgers and ribs. The entertainment - Mostly Dan was good. The wait stave was attentive. T-Bonz' was busy, so it looks like it is a favorite of the locals. Will return.

Stopped in for a quick dinner so my husband and I sat at the bar. We ordered two Guinness that were flat but suffered through them instead of asking for a replacement. Servers behind the bar were too busy talking to each other or looking at their phones. It took quite a while after getting our drinks before server asked... More

They changed the menu recently and the food has really gone down hill. Should be about 2.5 stars. We came about once a month but things seem to be going downhill. Everything tastes frozen or processed now. Service is slow. They took down a lot of the cool decor. I probably won't be coming back except for the beer... maybe.

We go for the happy hour 4-5 times a year and always find it enjoyable and reasonable.They have $3 off appetizers and $3 selected drafts as well as $2.50 domestic bottles.The old bay wings and steamed shrimp w/ Old Bay and potatoes are always quite good as well as the chicken quesadillas.

Typical little local restaurant with decent ribs, pit beef, turkey and ham and burgers and an extensive beer selection. They get a big crowd for quiz night on Wednesday so hard to get seated. Nothing fancy and we'll do carryout more often than eating in lately. On busy nights parking can be tough. It's located behind a corner shopping center.... More

I used to really like this place. Went there on Friday night and it was a disaster. All the artwork was gone from the walls and the AC wasn't working. It was about 90 inside. I spoke to the manager and he claimed the AC was on but just not strong. Ridiculous. I specifically asked if they were under new... More

We go to TBonz at least once a month for the beer selection. We'll go for happy hour and just order appetizers as our meal. The food is OK, not great. I've found it to be inconsistent depending on who's cooking that night. Some days we'll get a huge pile of nachos, other days the nachos will be a small... More

T Bonz is a great little place with great ribs. Great selection of beers too. Portion sizes are decent, although they changed their plating and the sides seem smaller. Don't plan on going Wednesday evenings unless you get there early, it's quiz night and packed, we've made that mistake more than once and couldn't get seated. Otherwise cozy booths and... More

Will start with the positive points: The server was friendly, promptly arrived with menus and returned with a children's menu when she saw that we had a child with us. The dining area was not crowded and our food arrived in about 10 minutes from the time that we places the order. Everything arrived as ordered and described with no... More

Basically, this is bar food pushed to a very high level. We ate there on half priced appetizer day, and we were lucky that we chose that day. I had the chicken nachos and thought that I could share some with my husband. Well, I could have shared with a very hungry group of men! The cheese and chicken were... More
