Went to Bridgeman's on a Friday night. We haven't been there since the new owners took over. We always enjoyed Bridgeman's in the past. So we thought we would give it a try. I was disappointed with my entrée, but the rest of the dinner was ok. But it is a little too pricey to be just ok. The service... More

Visited recently for the first time. Nice location right across from the water. The restaurant is well appointed and staff are friendly and welcoming. The menu has a nice selection and good variety with interesting flavor blends. I ordered a chicken special with goat cheese served over squash ravioli - the food took quite some time to arrive and was... More

Fantastic meal at Bridgeman's. Everything from start to finish is impeccable. We are always greeted at the door with a smile and seated as soon as possible. The wait staff is very attentive and give awesome recommendations. Thanks to Tracy, we have a new favorite vodka (Bradford's Vodka). The food is always excellent. We are huge fans of the veal...

We really wanted to like Bridgeman's. We found the menu to be ambitious and the prices quite high. We hoped the food would be fabulous and we were very disappointed by our meals, which were totally mediocre. We tried a second time, also for dinner, and were disappointed a second time. Some items were super salty and others needed seasoning... More

I have been a patron of this restaurant for years. We used to go with my parents, Hull residents, for years on special occasions and family reunion gathering. Also, my monthly girls' night dinner has this restaurant on our list for birthday dinners for the girls. This past weekend we hosted a 30th birthday party upstairs for a group of... More

According to the friends we went with for dinner last night, the menu was the same as it was with the previous owner. Strange but whatever....we all found something we wanted to try.

Thank you for your review. I am surprised that your friends thought our menu was the same menu from the previous owner and that you felt the menu needed to be more inspired.

At one time this was the best upscale restaurant in the area. Now with a couple of management changes, it has become mediocre. Side salads which used to be included are no more, entrees run up to $35 and portions are small. Dinner with appetizer, entrée, dessert, wine tax and tip tops $100pp. Hull is not Boston, folks.

Thank you for your review. We have many very affordable menu options to include our full three course prix fixe menu which includes appetizer, entrée and dessert for only $38. We offer many terrific wines (by the glass, half bottle and bottle) to appeal to a wide range of guest budgets and desires. We also offer brunch on both Saturday... More
