Great food and fun in the sun!

Awesome food with a great atmosphere. Super busy when the weather is nice. Has outdoor seating as well as entertainment and a water view. Upstairs more a bar scene especially for the College kids........More authentic Irish Pub 1st floor.

Aidan's seems to be the place to be even the day after Christmas. Busy (and noisy) when we arrived around 2 in the afternoon - but the hostess found us a table within 10 minutes as promised. Our waitress was prompt and pleasant. We order beers (of course) and a few appetizers to tied us over until our evening meal.... More

Went for lunch recently. I had the Meatloaf Mountain and I loved it. Served on garlic bread, covered with mashed potatoes, and gravy with onions. Nice light gravy, not overpowering. Friendly and attentive waitress.

Had lunch here with friends and the food was fantastic. I had ordered a steak sandwich and it was an actual steak...nothing shaved. The fries were great and the service was outstanding.

This is my most favorite place on earth. The food is to die for (I recommend the Limerick Sandwich when you want to go lighter, and the Bangers and Mash when you're really hungry!). The warm, friendly atmosphere here, the delicious food, the great setting in downtown Bristol are all reasons to come here again and again! Come on Sunday... More

Aidan's is a great restaurant, but not for children. It gets very noisy (lots of college kids). If you sit in the restaurant area it is not too bad, but at tables in the bar area you can't hear yourself think. The food is excellent and they have a great selection of beer. Their is a fireplace in the main... More

A good local beer pub in Bristol. Normally a younger crowd with the University close by. Food is good but not outstanding. Beer of course is flowing as is the fun.

Better than average pub food, with a diverse offering from traditional favorites to modern flavors with flare. The burgers are very tasty and juicy with toppings to please just about any palate. The adult beverage selections are well above average and always served perfectly. This is a restaurant well worth checking out. There is a nice water view from the... More
