“I love it here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

This is a great restaurant. While not the cheapest in town it's always worth the money. The food is always good, the service is always friendly and efficient and it is in a lovely location.
There is limited outdoor seating and this is great in Summer as it looks over the bay and is also a great vantage point if there is a concert or other activity happening at Independence Park.
It is family run, and it shows! The atmosphere is good and the decor is tasteful. I live locally and eat there mostly on special occasions; highly recommended.

“Best Fresh Fish/Italian on the East Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Family owned restaurant in beautiful location...best sunsets ever on the deck in the Summer or inside by the fireplace in the Winter. The best fresh swordfish with signature seaonsings. Great marinara with variety of pasta dishes and fresh local specials. Casual, very fair prices, and overall great atmosphere. You will be greeted by the owner himself every night and the same friendly staffed have greeted our family for many years.
We go there for family celebrations and quiet night out regularly.

“The best bang for your buck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

We have been going to the S. S. Dion for years. Every time our daughter visits from out-of-state, she requests that we go here for dinner. It is cozy in the winter (2 fireplaces) and delightful in the summer dining on the deck overlooking the beautiful Bristol Harbor. The food is delish; the best marinara, the best salmon. The staff is terrific--the best!

“Perfect sunset dining over the harbor with consistent good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2010

This is a 'staple restaurant' for most locals because of their consistency. You always will find a welcoming staff, flavorful dishes consisting of local seafood, pastas, and meats, and great details, like dressings made from scratch. It may not be a 'cheap night out', but will you find it to be a dining experience of VALUE. My favorite time to frequent is during the summer months, to dine on the deck overlooking Bristol Harbor. A lunch menu is usually added during the summer with delicious salads and light dishes. In the cooler months, the lit fireplaces and periodic piano playing, make it an enjoyable dining environment, coupled with their waitstaff that has been with them for years.
