Historic Building, Great Atmosphere, Very Good Food

The downtown area is very small so we walked up and down both sides of the street looking at each restaurants menu. This place looked like it was full of locals so, because of that along with the menu and the building, we gave it a try. We were lucky to get a table right away without a... read more

We stopped in for lunch and what a treat! Had blackened salmon lunch plate. Outstanding! Hubby had parmesan encrusted halibut. Rave reviews from him! Service was prompt and food came quick. Beautiful historical building.

This restaurant is in a beautiful historic building, but unfortunately our lunch didn't really measure up to the architecture. One of us had the clam chowder and the crab cakes. The chowder was passable, but a bit too thick for this person. On the other hand, the crab cakes were pretty awful. They were pasty and bready with no discernable... More

The Bridgewater is an attractive place, in part due to the beautiful historic building. But the food needs to measure up to the architecture. I've had scallops there 3 times, and while the shellfish is alright (could be a little better seared) the vegetables are terrible. On one occasion I saw a small pile of grayish stuff and asked what... More

Had dinner here on a Thursday night. Place was recommended by the Three Rivers Hotel staff. Asked several folks on the street as well and all had good words about the food and one told us Thursday night was all you can eat Fish & Chips for $10 which sealed the deal. The four of all had Fish & Chips... More

We have had meals here on several visits and have also enjoyed a mid-afternoon break with cocktails at the bar. The food is good and the atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing. Wait staff is attentive. In mid-summer it can be crowded with a wait for a table so we usually go early or late.

I had the salad with mandarin oranges, avocado and hazelnuts. The added grilled chicken was tender. Poppyseed dressing was light and not too tart. The piano music was nice. They played old songs that made me think of my Mom. Very pleasant experience.

Lunch here with friends who are Florence locals. Sits in Old Town, a nice little place to walk around after your meal. Cute decorations. Staff very efficient. Had cod and chips, hubby had salmon and chips. Lots of choices on menu. Food was very good. Would visit again.
