Over the last coupl of years the quality of the food has really gone downhill. Everything is just piled on top of the plate. Quality Is awful, and the only way the chef can cook a steak is well done. If I wanted that I'd eat my shoe. Service is the lone bright spot. I guess they figure they have... More

I am a very picky eater and the options were wonderful! My crab cake sandwich was delicious! The calamari was lightly breaded and not greasy. My friends and hubby enjoyed their sandwiches as well. The chip were so good! Plenty of food. We have had dinner before, and it was always perfect! Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful friendly atmosphere and excellent food and drinks. The GRAIN- FED hamburger is as good as you can get and they will prepare rare or as you like it. I have never been crazy about the deep booths but they are fine if you only have 4 people. The service is very good and the obvious amount of regulars verify... More

This was our first time at The Bridge Road Bistro and we decided it would be just the place to celebrate the New Year! They had a set menu for the holiday, which I enjoy because usually it is the chef's pick. We sat at the table near the kitchen, and at first I was skeptical because those seats can... More

First time patron, NYE dinner. Was a great experience overall and will return. We had a excellent lobster bisque and baked oysters with a bacon jam that was very good. I ordered the Filet with lump crab meat, asparagus and mash. Crab meat was excellent! Asparagus could use some flavor. Mashed potatoes were great. The filet was good, but not... More

Been here several times although this was with a large group. Waiter was excellent on all counts . Interesting version of crabcakes. Some filets done perfectly, some over done - hard with a large group. All loved the chocolate cake.

This restaurant had great food, wine and dessert. My co-worker and I decided to split a meal, and the portions were still generous. Whether it was the unique salads, great steak, or homemade ice creat, each dish was beautifully created, and delivered by knowledgable and friendly staff.

I had dinner here with a group of 12 people. The service was excellent, as was the food. I had butternut manicotti; it was rich and delicious. Others in the group raved about the scallops and locally-raised lamb chops. The atmosphere was nice and there was a great guitarists/ singer as well.
