I was excited to be invited to dinner and finally seeing Bonefish on the inside, but I did not have a pleasant experience. I arrived at 6 and the seating was half capacity. The service was very slow. It took over 10 minutes to get water. Another 10 for my drink. I was with two ladies and one had to send her drink back because they left out the alcohol. It then took over 25 minutes for my food to arrive. The seafood must have been ignored for a while because it tasted like gum erasers over birdseed-textured rice. A co-owner came to our table but was more concerned with us knowing who he was, rather than how we were being treated. The server who brought the food never came back to find out how we were doing. By then I just paid the check and left, for good. Maybe it was a bad night for them, but I think I'll just roll the dice with the other dozen restaurants nearby instead. I hope things turn around soon and you have a better time then we did.
As good as the food is I could not stay. Bartenders lack of attention for anyone but a regular is extremely frustrating. That is unless you expect some acknowledgement you're sitting there
Food is good, but employees suck!!!! They hire you but don't give hrs or days,and they call u in on days off, payday they take taxes and anything else u can make up and short u!!! :(
Went to Sweeney' s for the first time to celebrate my man's birthday. Wanted to try someplace different and googled restaurants serving fried oysters. Out of th he list, we choose Sweeney' s. Great choice!! The variety of seafood is far better than any in the area. The atmosphere and ambiance make you feel welcome. The great service and awesome food make you want to come back. No more franchise seafood restaurants for us!! This place has them beat!!
Horrible service on carryout order. Had to ask for warm fresh bread. They forgot several things for my entree and gave me a frozen dessert without ice cream in which the description read hot and fresh. Upon calling back to inquire I was told they just don't put out carryout like that because its to much trouble. If I could give less than one star I would
the best fish and wings in town
Sweeney’s SeafoodWalt Disney’s Finding Nemo isn’t the only place that clown fish find themselves in dangerous waters; Sweeney’s Seafood has an aquarium where their puffer fish keep Nemo on his toes every day. Speaking of fresh fish, back in 1994 original owner Ron Sweeney noticed that you couldn’t find any in the south Dayton area, so he opened Sweeney’s Seafood in downtown Centerville. Ever since then, guests have looked forward to bringing family and friends here. Whether you’re just looking for casual dining or are celebrating a special event, Sweeney’s is where you’ll want to dine. In April of this year, Sweeney sold the restaurant to Scott & Candy Anderson and Lisa Long. This new ownership kept the Sweeney name, but felt like a change was needed. They recently remodeled the inside to make it feel like you’re on a beach in Florida instead of here in Dayton. All new glassware, silverware, dishes and (YES) larger wine glasses enhance the feeling of elegance. New menu items are also on the horizon during the month of September! I asked Lisa what made her decide to make the switch from country club manager to Sweeney’s and she said “The country club was a job, Sweeney’s isn’t a job…it is my passion.” Lisa’s self-professed specialization is anticipating patron’s needs, and has worked hard to insure that all of them feel as if they’re her “personal guests.” She has developed a team that operates as one unit. The front (servers) and the back (kitchen) both strive for the exact same thing. They are fishing (no pun intended) for a very specific compliment… that Sweeney’s provides the “Entire Package” when it comes to a dining experience.I asked Lisa what we could we expect to be featured in the future as far as new tastes, and she was quick to point out that “Barramundi” have been a big hit this month. These fish come from Australia and are more buttery tasting than Chilean Sea Bass. The fact that they contain more Omega 3 is a bonus! She promises to continually look for new dishes in order to keep patrons happy.My mom specifically requested Sweeney’s for her birthday dinner, so my wife Stacey and I are taking her there Friday evening 9-14-12. If you are there, make sure you tap me on the shoulder and say “hi.” If you go any other time, make sure you tell Lisa that Greg Fay sent ya ;)
