This was the view I got from dinner last week. It as one of those days when you've worked really hard and late and walk into your kitchen and ugh, you just do not want to make dinner.
Thankfully Bone Island Gill At the Crooked Creek Marina is close by and my husband agreed that dinner out was the perfect plan.
It was still warm enough last Thursday evening that we actually ate out on the covered porch, we got to enjoy the boats and the view and saw lots of friends coming and going from dinner.
The Bone Island Grill has fall hours of:
- Wednesday to Friday 11AM- 3 PM & 5 PM - 10PM
- Saturday 8AM- 3PM & 5PM - 10PM
- Sunday 8 AM - 4PM
- PHONE NUMBER 706-485-9693
As you can see from the photos you can come by boat to the Bone Island Grill. You can get gas, launch your boat here and there is a convenience store for those things you might have forgotten or run out of when you left home on the boat.
There are sometimes fabulous special events with bands outside to enjoy while you enjoy dinner. They also offer "Picnics on a boat! as well as other catering!
My husband's absolute favorite thing on the menu is the Spicy Green Beans- yummy pan fried green beans in a spicy sweet sauce with applet bacon. I think the applewood bacon is what makes it his favorite. It is fabulous.
Don't they look like they taste good. Just enough crunch and crispness and the spice is just the right amount of heat.
The crumbles of applewood bacon are really thick and crunchy and there are red pepper flacks scattered. I also need to add that this is a HUGE plate.
Someday we will try some of the other appetizers on the menu, maybe!
This is my dinner. I have it every time I go. I'm a creature of habit and when I try something I like I usually stick to that dish at that place.
This is Shrimp and Grits. Fresh shrimp and andouille sausage in a Cajun Sauce over white cheddar cheese grits and as you can see it's served with skillet corn and a big slab of buttered home made cornbread.
It really is fabulous!
This was Donald's dinner. He is more adventurous and usually tries several things on the menu. He also highly recommends their Ribeye.
But this time he had Georgia Surf and Turf Putnam County Style. 1/2 rack of ribs with two pieces of lightly breaded fried cat fish.
As you can see it's served with home cut fries and skillet corn and a big slab of that buttered home made cornbread.
It's a lot of food. Donald had to get a to go plate and that hardly ever happens.
So if you are looking for a quiet out of the way place with great food and are near Lake Sinclair I have to recommend that you take the time to go to Bone Island Grill at Crooked Creek Marina.
They are located at 208 Crooked Creek Drive, Eatonton, GA. You can call ahead at 706-485-9693
If you are visiting the area this is one of those home town places the locals know about that you just MUST give a try. You'll be stuffed.
