I wish that there was a VERY EXCELLENT button! He revived a chronograph that had sucked in seawater from a snorkel vacation in the Caymans and it's been running accurately ever since! No one else would touch it, saying that the seawater probably destroyed the movement and the battery circuits. Bob didn't even flinch. I'll only trust this guy for my watch repair.

Let's cut to the chase. Sure the food is excellent, but the people are the best part of dining at Bonefish Grill! We were treated to service that I've only seen in family run restaurants. I was spoiled rotten by our server, Stephany, who made the whole evening and the people we brought with us feel like it was a royal occasion. The meal I ordered was out of this world! The steak was tender, the shrimp and scallops perfectly seasoned. I'm coming back and I'm bringing more friends!

The Casa Alegre enchilada sauce is outstanding and the enchilada is as big as a burrito! the shredded beef was tender and everything was great. I thought for what we got that the price was very low. I plan to go back again.
