The service is always great with our server Scottie. The food is always prepared to our liking. However, the music is so loud that my husband always has to to turn his hearing aids completely off and you still can't stand the music. I don't wear hearing aids and the music is still way too loud . The room is very small and generally has a good ambiance. However for the last several months the music has been playing so loud that you don't want to stay there to eat your meal. At this point, I wouldn't recommend the restaurant for anyone who wants to engage in small conversation because you can't hear each other.

I ordered the Ribeye. It was flavorful but the meat was not tender at all and I ordered it as medium rare. Possibly they are using a cheaper cut of meat?

Took friends out to celebrate retirement from USPS and was not disappointed. It was their first time at Bonz, though they do not live that far away. I got Ribeye cooked to perfection and LITERALLY could cut with a fork. They got the Rockfish with big chunks of crabmeat on top. They said it was the best they had ever had. Steve, our waiter, is probably one of the best waiters on THE PLANET. I've eaten at Cellar in the Sky in NYC, at The Herb Farm near Seattle and never had better service than Steve's. Hospitality manager on site, spoke to us and several others. Its why Bonz remains THE place to go when you want to be sure the evening goes perfectly.

Great meal along with excellent service. Crab cake was amazing. Lump crab meat without the filler and broiled to perfection. Steak was fork tender and cooked as ordered. Nice respite from the noise on the casino floor. Will definitely be back soon!

Service was great. The food awesome. They have a fried lobster that’s available upon request when making your reservation, it’s a must order. The whipped mashed potatoes and twice baked highly recommended. The bread is very good, but pace yourself to save room for dinner.

I enjoy Bonz and up until Sunday, the food was always amazing. This visit it was not good at all.
Our server Drew was excellent as always (we have had him before) but unfortunately the food was not and both my boyfriend and I got ill later in the evening.
We each had a Caesar salad. He had a ribeye and I had a NY strip. We shared a side of mashed potatoes.
My steak was cooked perfectly but gristle/fatty and tasteless, very under seasoned. The potatoes were bland, very heavy (lacked cream) ... we added the butter that was for our rolls but they were just like stiff, heavy glue. My boyfriend said his rib eye was just okay. The croutons on the salad were like bricks, inedible. It definitely was not the quality that we are used to getting when dining there. We usually visit once a month. Thanks.

EVERYTHING WAS SUPERB! I told our waiter, Scottie, that this was the best meal and service I have had in Delaware since moving here 4 years ago.
Price is a little steep for some menu items. But, for a special occasion, it is definitely worth it.
My husband’s ribeye was cooked exactly as he likes it. My Chilean Sea Bass, vegetables and crispy potatoes were spectacular!

Third time visiting, first time was very good, second time was not so good but I’m assuming it was because of several issues with maintaining power during our dining experience, this third time I had a taste for steak and Bonz was the only place we could get a reservation. All I can say I’m glad of our decision, the meal was the best, our waiter Scotty was very informative of everything on the meal this guy took our experience to the next level, he is definitely keeper for your business and should be training everyone!!!
