Has anyone been to the new No Bones in Gallows Bay yet? It is where the old Case Place used to be.

We are going to try it tonight as we just heard it is now open after what seems to be a 2 years construction period.

Let us know how it is. The spot has been lots of different places...beginning with the Crab and Oyster House, back in the days pre-Hugo. At that time, it was huge...the whole upstairs as well as down... think it was Kendrick's for a while, can't remember what else.

Yes, we went for lunch this week because we've been waiting for
It to open for months! We both had a very good lunch, the food was good. It was very slow but that's to be expected when a restaurant just opens.

I have one complaint about it. When it was the Case Place, there was a beautiful view out to the bay where you could see ships and boats going by. Now, every single window has been sealed off and there is no outside light coming in.

It's almost like being in the old No Bones where it felt like you were dining in a dark cave. On a bright sunny beautiful day, it's very dreary coming into a restaurant that has no natural light. I don't get it living here in the Caribbean. Really weird.

My wife and I went for dinner last night and it was very nice! The place has a nice ambiance to it and we loved the decor. They might consider installing some acoustic panels as the sound level was pretty loud. I didn't miss the windows from Case Place and prefer the darker steak house feel.

Our server was very attentive as always and Chuck was a gracious host as always having greeted us warmly and visiting each table to ensure everyone was happy.

The food service was very prompt. We tried the new pulled pork nachos for the appetizer and thought they were great. I had the Fish & Chips which was from the old Bones and my wife had a delicious pork special that I can't remember the name of.

All in all, it was a very good experience. This restaurant will be a huge success.

Great to hear, I didn't like the old location too small and I always forgot it was there. The food is awesome. My only complaint was it was too dark. Cant wait to try the new spot.

I went the day after it opened for lunch, around 12:30. Still busy with lots of talking and laughing. Sound baffling is definitely needed. Nicely laid out. Food always good. From what I remembered of the Case Place the afternoon sun was so hot and bright they had to close the blinds early so patrons didn't fry. I wish Chuck all the success and hope, someday, he might consider serving breakfast.

All I need now is a Hummer to deal with the road!

We did go last night and it was PACKED! Chuck was a gracious host, even though they incorrectly notated our reservation. He visited our table several times to check on things. Service was great and the food very good.

I miss all the windows that The Case Place had, even though there is no view worth noting. The only negative comment we had is that it is VERY NOISEY! We ended up going over to the Terrace Bar to chat.

Maybe they should just call it Room with No View.

Any oldies on here know if this building was the Rogues back in the 70's? Glad it's reopened and wish them much success! (I hope they were able to 'borrow' The Case Place's crab dip, yum!)

PS-- I wonder how they got that Supreme Smokey Smell out of there....my eyes are watering just thinking about it 😉
