We travel between Sugarloaf Mt and Massachusetts often and finally found a fabulous place to eat. Not crowded late afternoon and fabulous service from Tiana. We had delicious piping hot lobster stew...which he loved along with a great beet salad with goat cheese. We split a seafood entree with lobster cream sauce that was to die for. Yes we're coming...

We celebrated a work milestone at Fishbones, and it was perfect! We all had something different and were all extremely pleased. My Tuna was perfectly cooked exactly the way I like it.

Obviously one of the better restaurants in town. Good food and good service. The lobster stew was really a soup. The bread pudding was delightful.

Restaurant chose to accept a reservation for 30 which seriously compromised the quality of our service and food. Main course arrived over 30 minutes after our salads and 2 of 3 dinners were cold. Shared this but also did not want to wait for fresh plates. Should have been comped when I barely ate 20 percent of the meal. Not... More

Dear Deborah T., I am so sorry to read about your unfortunate experience with us on your last visit. We obviously fell short of your expectations as your group happened to fall behind a larger group which caused a delay and was further compounded by the fact that we under performed on the meals we delivered to your table. I... More

Located in a renovated mill Fish Bones delivered as advertised. So good, in fact, we visited twice during our trip to Lewiston. The menu consisted of traditional new england fair with thick creamy clam chowder and a delicious fried haddock sandwich. The steaks and burgers also looked great. The service was prompt and friendly. I can see why it is... More

We had made reservations...were immediately and pleasantly offered seating upon arrival. Our waitress was prompt and attentive. I ordered the calamari as an appetizer. The presentation was very good, but the fried calamari itself was a bit over cooked and tough. As the beef was locally sourced, the four of us decided on trying the burgers. I ordered rare, and...

Got ignored by weight staff then waited forever to get food while seated near a 6 or 8 table group of loud & vulgar people. It was well over an hour before food arrived and I was so rattled by then I couldn't even eat. NEVER again! Oh and manager (I assume) came out & yucked it up with the... More

Dear Susan I, I was so very sorry to read your review of Fish Bones on your recent visit. I have surveyed my staff and we are having a difficult time pinpointing the day, time, and references you have made regarding a table of vulgar guests, or any of the other issues you experienced. My wife and I spend many... More

This place has amazing seafood and the burgers aren't bad either. They did run out of bud light while I was there so that's a bit strange. Service was good but it did take a long time to get our food. Worth the wait though!
