7/22/15: Bonefish Grill Hooked on Tuesday Menu

We love trying out new restaurants.  There is a Bonefish Grill in Wayside Commons in Burlington, MA which we had never tried.  When I learned about their Hooked on Tuesday menu and with our 15 year wedding anniversary we decided to check them out.  We were not disappointed!
Here is a lovely view of the outside of the restaurant.  We had a reservation and I would suggest making one.
We were seated in a lovely booth like this one.  The ambiance inside is very nice and casual.
The Hooked on Tuesday menu features three course meals starting at $14.90.  This is a great value for the amount of food we got.  You can see their Hooked on Tuesday menu here, or check out their full menu here.
I started out with the Blackberry Red Sangria.  It was excellent.  So refreshing and the fruit in it was wonderful.  I had never tried a blackberry sangria and I loved it.  It was a unique twist on a traditional sangria.  I also learned from our waitress that all of their Martini's are made with fresh squeezed juices.  There were many wonderful drink options.
Back to the food though.  With the Hooked on Tuesday menu you can order the "Bang Bang Shrimp" for a discounted price of $6.  My husband ordered it.  Here is the surprise, I never, I mean never eat Shrimp.   I actually ate these shrimp!!!  They were so good.  Now I am craving them again.  Our waitress said she ate them for the first three months she worked there.  Now I can see why.  It is one of their signature dishes.  They are also $6 on Wednesday nights.
Here is the bread which had a wonderful pesto dipping sauce.  Plus the bread was warm.  It was really good and the kids ate it up very quickly.  I had to be quick with my camera as they were grabbing for it the second it hit the table.
There are two options for salad.  You can order the Classic Caesar or the Bonefish House Salad.  My husband and I both ordered the Caesar and it was really good.  The lettuce was still crisp and it was not drowning in dressing which happens all to often with Caesar Salad.
On to my meal.  I ordered the Fontina Pork Chop.  This meal was excellent and so much food.
You can see the thickness of the pork chop here.  I got a side of Au gratin Potatoes and fresh vegetables.  This meal is as good as it looks with garlic, mushrooms, prosciutto, fontina cheese and Marsala wine sauce.
John ordered the Spicy Tuna Bowl and said it was also excellent.
There is also a kids menu.  I called to make sure they had one as I didn't see it on their website.  The menu consisted of Chicken Fingers, Grilled Chicken, Fish Sticks, and Macaroni and Cheese for about $7.50 each.  My daughter ate all of her Chicken Fingers and thought they were really good.  By mistake she was brought broccoli but this was quickly remedied by our server and even asked if she wanted a replacement plate.
Then of course there is dessert.  There are three options Macadamia Nut Brownie, Classic Cheesecake and Jen's Jamaican Coconut Pie.  We ordered the brownie and the cheesecake.  Here is the brownie which the kids dug right in to.  They especially liked the warm brownie and vanilla ice cream.  There is also fresh whipped cream and a raspberry sauce that were really good.
The cheesecake was just as expected.  Creamy and rich and so good with a chocolate and sea salt caramel drizzle.
There is also an outdoor seating area to eat at that looked lovely.
Here is a view of the bar area.
