Excellent sea food

We went here for my birthday for a party of 7 and were seated in a private room for 10. The service was excellent, the food was exceptional and they give a free dessert for your birthday

Wonderful food..specializing in seafood, of course. Gumbo, lobster Cobb salad, ahi tuna, etc etc. It's all good but not inexpensive ~ entrees from $22 - $40. Decor is trendy, intimate. Private rooms for smaller parties. Comfy, cozy booths. Service was excellent.

I visit Kansas City once a year and drive the 20 miles from the airport to the Bristol Seafood Grill for Friday night dinner. The Bristol has valet parking for 10 dollars and with the temperature at 95 degrees it was worth it. The hostess seated me away from the boisterous bar and dinner was flawless as always. Their seafood... More

Quite simply its some of the best food we've had anywhere. I highly recommend this place for a special occasion as it's a little pricy. Our bill for four with drinks was about $400 without gratuity. All the entrees were great and we liked the lobster mac, the crab cakes, and the grits best for sides. Try the carrot cake... More

My husband and I were in KC for a concert and went into Bristol's to get dinner. The two young ladies at the front said they only had one high top table and they tried to place us right next to a mic and I asked about the empty booths and she hatefully replied, they are reserved. Not one time... More

I was in the bar area for a group get together. We had three appetizers that were ordered in advance for our group: jumbo shrimp, 2 flatbreads one with smoked salmon the other with smoked meat. All three appetizers were fabulous. Our server was attentive and came around regularly to restock drink orders. The decor is beautiful and it was... More

The Bristol in the Power and Light District is our go to place for Sunday Brunch. The atmosphere is casual,and relaxed but not loud. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The cold bar is the best with sashimi and other smoked fish, fresh salads, cheese and breads. I could stay with the cold bar and be very happy,... More

Had a dinner with 10 friends here. They gave us our own separate room which was amazing! We hadn't seen each other in years, so it was perfect for us to catch up and hear each other talk. Seafood cooked to perfection. Great service!

This is our favorite place for Sunday brunch when celebrating special occasions. The Power & Light (downtown) location includes seafood in their buffet. We went there for my daughter's 30th birthday and they gave her two free glasses of champagne. The food is wonderful especially the seafood buffet which includes sushi, oysters, shrimp, ahi tuna, seaweed salad and other wonderful... More

Five of us shared several happy hour appetizers that were $5 each. These ranged from mini-lobster rolls to delicate spring rolls to bruschetta. Only a couple of vegetarian options, but our vegetarian was happy with what she got. We shared bites with each other, and enjoyed very nice house wines. Service was great. It was early evening on a weekday... More
