Bonefish Grill calls it their Hand-Crafted Happy Hour because they feature their $5 Hand-Crafted Martini and Cocktails the likes of the Raspberry Vodka Collins with Tito’s vodka, Blueberry Lemon Drop with Absolut Citron, Tropical Tiki Martini with Captain Morgan rum, and Fresh Margarita with Dimeca Altos Tequila.
There are other libation specials: $1 off draft beers, $4 House Wines and select spirits $5. The Raspberry Collins was a bit strong for my companion, but the Tropical Tiki Martini was enjoyed by both of us. The Tropical Tiki Martini was a refreshing blend of island flavors and not to overly sweet.
Since the price of the bar bites were a mere $6 each, we proceeded to taste each offering on their new happy hour menu. Our Bonefish Grill manager said the Crispy Cod Sliders (2), fried in a tempura type batter with their special sauce and potato bun was the most popular. The fish was crispy, flavorful but not our favorite, The Waygu Beef Sliders (2), Ahi Tuna Poke, Crispy Calamari (small) and Mussels Josephine (small) were bountiful in the flavor department and 2 to 3 of these bar bites can be called dinner.
The added bonus, Bonefish Grills celebrates happy hour seven days a week starting at 4 pm – ending hours vary per location. On my return visit, the poke and waygu sliders are on top of my list.
