The History

Setting out to create a truly unique dining experience, our founders believed in creating a fun, stylish, conversational atmosphere for our guests to enjoy the finest of fresh seafood. On January 15, 2000 in St. Petersburg, Florida, the first Bonefish Grill was born.

The BFG Story

Our founders, Tim Curci and Chris Parker, joined together over their mutual passion for fish and adventure. Wanting to create a unique dining experience taking the "mystery out of fish", they built a brand filled with rich culture and appreciation for its people. They believed in a hands on approach, including daily rituals of receiving and inspecting fish that our partners still practice today.

There's no way like the Bonefish way. Around here, people are at the forefront of what drives our passion. From our guests, vendors and anglers to our neighbors and partners, we take pleasure in the details of a superb experience that has the comfort and and price of casual dining.
