Another fantastic dinner with a view at Crooked Creek Marina @ Bone Island Grill

By

Not long ago I was eating somewhere that was NOT my favorite place and I was wishing for the great service I always get when I'm at Bone Island Grill at Crooked Creek Marina.  The food is always great, but I can guarantee you will get GREAT service at Bone Island Grill.  And it's also very likely that the owner will stop by and chat with you. 

The long hot summer we've had kept me inside the dining room for most of it, but today the air was crisp and in the mid 70's and we sat out on the porch and enjoyed not only our dinner, but Conner Pledger was entertaining as well.  Who might be preforming if you eat at B.I. G toight? We even got to hear a couple of his original pieces over dinner.  It was a fantastic evening to have dinner on the porch.  I was a little jealous of the folks that arrived by boat, because it also looked like the perfect evening for a cruise around Lake Sinclair.

We started tonight with a southern staple, Fried Green Tomatoes.  They were de-lish!  Donald had Shrimp atouffee with a big slab of buttered cornbread.  I had fried shrimp, grits and a baked potato. I also ordered a side of gravy because they had chicken fried steak with gravy on the menu as a special tonight and that's mouth watering gravy with bacon and it's wonderful for dipping a bite of potato and well even a shrimp.  We were stuffed and even had to get a to go box, but I still couldn't pass up bread pudding, so we brought that home in a to go box as well.  Of course there are lots of other choices on the menu at Bone Island Grill @ Crooked Creek Marina.

And in just over a week there will be a Boating Bonanza, I promise more details tomorrow.  But it's Saturday September 17, 2011 and you don't want to miss it.

Tammy I'm so glad you have this place to enjoy.  We were just commenting the other day about how service, even in fine dining establishments, has fallen to the wayside.  Good food, good service and good location - WINNING!

Hi Tammy, I'm sure I've commented on this before, but I think it would be so cool to take the boat to dinner! ( and   even better that when you get there you get great service together with delicious food)

Kristine- it is awesome.  If you ever get near central GA, look me up and I'll take you.

Susan- when I said I wanted the bread pudding to go, they packed up my scoop of ice cream seperate and put it in one cup and put that cup in a cup of ice.  I LOVE them.

Tony- it's always a really nice experience.

Mary- I love to hear the water lap the shore or the side of the boat when you are just sitting out in the water.  I must get Donald to take me out in the peddle boat before it gets too cold.

Tammy - That food looks just so tempting!  It must be fabulous to drive up to the Bone Island Grill from a boat and savor their delicious food.

My mother used to fix fried green tomatoes.  I can't remember the last time I had them but your picture looks scrumptious!

Tammy, Everything looks so good.  I just had a nice dinner, and yet...... this makes me hungary again.  Such great service too it sounds like and great atmosphere too.  If I were closer, I would definitely have to give it a try.

Donna- it is fun.  It's long been a tradition although the resturant changed hands a few years ago and vastly improved.  I always recommend folks visiting my lake give this place a try.

Shrley- I have made them before too, but they are NEVER as good as at Bone Island Grill.

Vickie- hey, if you ever get close... call me.

Jane- I love that movie too.  It was filmed not to far from me (about an hour away).  I'll have to post about that one day.

Carla- I still have a smiggin of that bread pudding and two fried green maters in the frig for today.  Can't wait.  I have a late inspection appointment, so I'll guess I HAVE to wait.  But, you know what I mean.

Endre- It would be quite the drive, but I bet you'd like it too.

My Donald is working this weekend, so we'll be eating in, but that's okay.... we can have those moments at home too.  Just later than normal... 12 hour work days make for late dinner.
