My wife surprised me and took me here for dinner. She had never been either. The view from the dinning area is great. (You can sit outdoors if you like as well). Service was very good and not rushed. Menu was extensive, leaning more towards sea food (to be expected given the location). Our meals were prepared as we liked,... More

Heard praises so we had "great expectations". We were not disappointed. The service was very good and the food excellent. The owner even stopped by to see how all went. I would most certainly recommend this restaurant.

We visited the restaurant after sunset, but we could tell the view would have been spectacular. Unfortunately, the food was not. I ordered swordfish, which was inexplicably fishy smelling. My husband had a steak which was OK but nothing special. The glasses of wine were tiny. We are definitely not fine dining food snobs, but were disappointed with both the... More

We are always pleased to have dinner here. The food is very, very good. Servers are super friendly. Atmosphere is cozy. Had dinner with friends the other night and they were really surprised and satisfied. Prices are reasonable. Right across from the bay with outside dining in season. We try to eat here 3-4 times a year.

Don't go there. They treat you horribly & take their customers for granted. Go to Quito's, Redlefsen's or Agave which are all in the same area. Not to mention Roberto's, Aidan's, Persimmon & Lobster Pot among others. Bristol, RI is a beautiful town and SS Dion does not deserve your business there.

I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of friends and was not disappointed. I had a difficult time choosing from the many lobster specials or the regular menu. I shared an appetizer of calamari and they were perfectly fried. The batter was light and the calamari themselves were tender, not chewy at all. My entree was the fried scallops... More

A VERY nice, quaint restaurant with terrific views of the sunset overlooking Bristol Harbor. The scallops, shrimp, and swordfish are not to be missed! I highly recommend this place. You won't be sorry!

The food here is OK. The restaurant is a bit dated. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The prices can be a bit on the high side all things considered.

My husband and I have been here a few times with our friend. We always get seated right by one of the big windows in the front. They are nicely decorated for Christmas, with a small fake tree and present underneath it. For appetizers my husband and our friend ordered shrimp cocktail. They are $3.00 per piece, but they are...
