“Brian our server”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have visited this restaurant in it's previous guises over the last 5 years. The food has always been excellent. This was our second visit of our vacation and Brian remembered us and provided his usual high standard of delivery with great explanations of all dishes and drinks available. Together with the brilliant views and excellent food and service this is a restaurant we will always visit when we are on the Island.

“Come for Sunset, Stay for Good Food!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have dined at Bridge Street Bistro several times during spring and early summer, and I always like this place. First, we have always dined al fresco here, overlooking the beach. (It is located on the third floor directly across Gulf from the beach) The view for sunset is fantastic.
The service has always been friendly and attentive, but not too attentive. There is a nice, but not lengthy, wine menu. They have a good line-up of appetizers and salads and there are always fresh fish choices, although I usually opt for the Grouper. The also are always able to offer new glutten-free options for Mary. There is also a very nice dessert selection. I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience here. Be sure to pick a night that it is not raining so you can enjoy the sunset!

Tip 1) Call for reservations.
Tip 2) Use their parking, which is located off Bridge St under the building. Then take the elevator up to the restaurant.
Tip 3) Bring a jacket in case it gets breezy (although you can move inside).
Tip 4) Stroll down Bridge St before or after dining for a bit of window shopping.

“Our Favorite Island Restaurant!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We have been dining at The Bridge Street Bistro since their opening day! Not only do we LOVE the food but our favorite Server, Hristos, is now like family to us. He and the entire staff make dining in this beautifully appointed restaurant a completely enjoyable experience and the view of the Gulf waters is second to none!

“An oasis of excellence”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were struggling to find a decent restaurant in Bradenton when we discovered this on the third floor. Nice restaurant, excellent views and service.
Food was very good and we will definitely be going back
