Place was very busy. Service was still good. I didn't get to taste any pizzas, but I was seated at the bar next to the oven. They certainly make pizzas that should taste incredibly good. Had some mushroom appetizer that was great and a burger that was very good.

Bidwell is definitely a good choice if you are into oysters as they offer $2.00 local oysters on the half-shell. Delicious! they don't have as much variety in selection like other places, but that price is worth it. The rest of their food is certainly different, and most of it is quite delicious. The kale salad was especially delicious. We also tried the Bidwell Burger, which I though was also quite good. It is decently not worth it to purchase their macaroni and cheese appetizer, though. It is $8.00 and served in a very small pan! Not worth it. It is very nice that they are so accommodating for people eating gluten free, though.

We went here for Valentine's Day. There was a special Valentine's Day menu, with several courses, and a choice of two options for most courses. The food was excellent. The service was poor and extremely slow. They forgot to bring our second course and when we reminded them, they brought it after we already had our entrees. Then we waited an extremely long time for dessert. While we were waiting for dessert, someone brought us appetizers, thinking we had just come in. Lots of different servers came to our table and apparently they had trouble tracking which course we were on and how long we were waiting. The manager came over at one point (I think she was going around to all the tables and apologizing for the slow service) and she apologized but things just got worse after that and they didn't offer to reduce our bill.

Although the food vendors were tempting, we had a family dinner at Bidwell’s. The waitress was attentive although a bit soft spoken. The charcoal pizza was a hit. The fried chicken was great.... super hot and juicy, good mashed potatoes and great green beans. The fettuccini with shrimp seemed to be sauce free so it was a little lacking in flavor. Overall quite good.
