Good food, drinks, atmosphere and location! They have a tiki bar and deck. Also music upstairs near the larger bar.

The food is always good, and great selection for beers. Only problem is usually wait times and service. Not well organized with flipping tables.

This is a great bar inside and out. They have several decks and bars. The outdoor seating is great as well as the outdoor bar. The only downside is they allow smoking at the outdoor bar, not great.

This was a recommendation from our family so on the way back through we had lunch here and were not disappointed. Husband had the meatloaf mountain and the mashed potatoes were excellent, the loaf was average. I had the fish and chips and it was very good, everyone else was satisfied with their meal and the service was excellent.

This place is a staple in Bristol. The food is very good, the wait staff is fantastic, and the beer selection is excellent. We go her 3 or 4 times per month. Seating outside in the summer is very enjoyable. Give the place a try!

Excellent food and service. Sitting out on the deck was a plus. Got a bit loud as the evening progressed.

I was there Monday (Memorial Day) with my wife and my English friend and his wife. My friend and I were back for corned beef and cabbage, the Thursday special. Clearly the Guinness is what attracts us but the food is consistently very good.

My friends and I took a roadtrip this Memorial Day. It was a bit rainy so we decided to plan our day around lunch. We made our decision at the last minute using a restaurant app on my phone and Aidan's looked good. It was a good decision. We sat down at a table but had to move. The airconditioner... More
