Bonefish Grill was founded by Chris Parker and Tim Curci in January of 2000. The company has headquarters in Tampa Bay, Florida, and currently has more than 158 locations in 34 states. Bonefish Grill offers American style seafood in a casual dining experience. The company offers mainly wood grilled fish and has a wide variety of specialty- type mixed drinks. Bonefish Grill also offers a gluten-free dining experience.
The typical Bonefish Grill restaurant is only open for dinner, although some locations are open for weekend brunch. Although the company is considering offering a lunchtime menu, at this time they are using only a few locations for a pilot program.
Bonefish Grill was purchased by Bloomin’ Brands in 2001 when the company had only 3 locations. By 2006, the company had 100 locations.
The ongoing coronavirus crisis of 2020 and subsequent quarantine in most states has caused serious hardships for the restaurant industry. Parent company Bloomin’ Brands has plans to make a strong comeback and recovery.
The company maintains a corporate office in Tampa, Florida.
