Can't believe $6 for a cup of tea at Fishbones. We will never go back there again. Incredibly poor customer service. My wife and I had a nice meal and topped it off with dessert and a cup of tea for my wife. Now for years my wife asks for two tea bags with her tea. Our waitress delivered our dessert and tea with two teabags. When we got the check we noticed we were charged for 2 cups of tea, The waitress informed us that she had to charge us for two cups of tea per the owners instructions. When I asked to speak with the owner, they sent the manager over instead. I told her nicely that it seemed a little unreasonable to have a $6.00 cup of tea. Yes, she said because you had two tea bags. We have been to lots of restaurants, many much nicer, more expensive than Fishbones. Never have we been charged for two tea bags. I won't bore you with the details of my polite disagreement with the manager. While she said that she understood my complaint there was nothing she could do. Nothing? "No" she said, that is the way we manage our business. So the manager has an unhappy customer, not over $3.00, but simply for the fact that she was completely unwilling to make a clearly unhappy customer, a happy customer. That she could let us walk out of that restaurant with such a bitter taste is unbelievable. For those who may think that I am just too cheap, we left our capable but embarrassed waitress just shy of a 25% tip. We will never go to Fishbones again. Ever. Shame on the manager and shame on the owner. An otherwise enjoyable experience ruined over a cup of tea. The food may be good but the experience is lousy.

The first time my husband and I went we were very please with the food and service. The second time we were very disappointed with the food, service and prices. My salmon was undercooked, the crab legs were way over priced for the small quantity and the service was slow and our party of five were served at different times. It will be a while before we give this restaurant a third try.

i had the swordfish. It was very good. But the garlic mashed potatoes were not. They tasted like boxed potatoes and I did not taste any garlic.<br /> The seating outside should be facing north and south. So if you are eating between 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm the sun will not be in your eyes. My boyfriend wore sunglasses and he still had to keep moving his head so the sun would not be directly in his eyes. I saw the other two couples that were facing the sun squinting and putting their hands overhead to block the sun.

We really like this restaurant. The food is very very good and we don't have alot of seafood restaurants in the area. I would recommend it. the lobster roll is huge and is my daughter's favorite. The salads are really good too and so is the chowder.
