First time visit though we have gone by it many times. The primary reason that I say that is because on HHI brightly lighted signage is a no-no. What that means for many visitors is that it is difficult to find even exact addresses after dark because of the dimly lit numbers and even business signs themselves. I only mention... More

A small group of us dined on the patio last week to celebrate an engagement. Everything from the food down to the service was excellent. Our waitress Nikki was warm and friendly and had a smile on her face the entire time, she really made us feel welcomed. A great bottle of champagne was suggested to our group. The seafood... More

The restaurant is located in the classy Main Street shopping center. The exterior looks well decorated and neatly kept. As soon as you walk in, you know you are in a well-run place. The holiday décor is up (Nov. 30, 2016) and the place looks classy. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We were greeted right away and led... More

Had dinner there with friends and had a thoroughly enjoyable time and fantastic dinner. I ordered their special Rid Eye Steak marinated in Coffee Grounds. It was wonderful. One of the best steaks ever! Great evening was had by all.

This is our second time to Hilton Head Island. We live in PA. We came in 2014 and went to Frankie Bones. The food was fabulous. This year was our 35th anniversary and we wanted to eat here for our special night. The waitress was warm and friendly, she had the most beautiful laugh. I had the beets and goat... More

Did an internet search to find a place for dinner and this was in our find. Didn't really know what to expect, but for just dropping in, it was another great find in Hilton Head. Our original table was near the kitchen, so we asked to be moved to a high top in the bar area. Received excellent service and... More

Retro dining at the "club" atmosphere w/excellent variety of old world food and cocktail selections. Generous portions and petit selections available. This is the place on the island for a great steak, veal, picatta, eggplant, accompanied by a little pasta, many salad options. Reminded of NYC, NJ, Chicago w/o the expense!

We were seated in a back room. Had only been there long enough to place our drink orders when another large and EXCESSIVELY loud party was seated next to us. We asked to move to the patio. The staff bent over backwards to be accommodating. The food was delicious. We can't wait to go back!

After driving for 11 hours we were in the mood for some good food and drink. We found Frankie's open late on Sunday night. We enjoyed some wine and some awesome food. While my dish is not for everyone one, if you like Liver and Onions, you'll love their version. Tender, flavorful, and generous portion. Maybe the best I've had.... More

Enjoying Frankie Bones for years, have had many dishes and loved them all. Pasta, meat, fish all done the way it's supposed to be. The staff and kitchen are so accommodating, ask and they will try. Tonight (Thanksgiving) we, along with our neighbors, ordered complete Thanksgiving meal for 8-10 to go. We all agreed we will never cook on this... More
