Bonefish Grill – One of the few national restaurants that Willow Winds recommends is Bonefish Grill. The staff favorite is the Bang Bang Shrimp. This seafood experience provides our guests with top-notch seafood in the mountains. Once inside, the ambience gives a glimpse into the delectable meal to follow. With ample sized appetizers you must be careful to leave room for the main course. Having eaten there many times, I have NEVER been dissatisfied with my meal.
