Full disclosure, I know someone who is part-owner. He asked for honest feedback about the place so here we go...
Location, location, location! The Fishbone Grill and Oyster Bar is right across the street from AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play football. The restaurant/sports bar has been recently remodeled. Parking and the main entrance are in the back.

The friend next to me ordered grilled Mahi Mahi on a rice pilaf. She loved the grilled vegetables, hush puppies and the flavor of the fish but unfortunately it was overcooked. The strawberry margarita on the rocks she drank was pretty and potent.

Two people ordered grilled crab cakes and they looked very good. I didn't see a bit left on their plates. The presentation could have been a bit better, some lettuce leaves or rice would have dressed them up. I didn't get a picture of the raw oysters that were ordered. I don't care for oysters but those that like them were pleased.

The menu was quite large, kind of a Cajun/Mexican theme. Prices were reasonable for the D/FW area. Service was good. If you find yourself around N. Collins in Arlington, Texas, perhaps at a game or at Six Flags, and you are craving some fried seafood or shrimp queso with a great view of Cowboy stadium try the Fishbone Grill. Full-bar and patio seating facing the street.
