“Great service, excellent food, and fantastic bisque!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We have dined here a few times, including the extravagant Sunday Brunch. Most recently we decided to hit them up during Restaurant Week to take advantage of the package deal. And what a deal it was!

We all knew from past experience that the lobster bisque was incredible and were not disappointed. As our starter course, the bisque is a creamy, rich broth with chunks of lobster to set it apart. It has a wonderful taste and isn't blase as many such bisques often are.

I went with the Atlantic Salmon and it was delicious. Very good taste without being "fishy" as some can be when not served relatively fresh. My wife went with the Filet Mignon and added a lobster tail. She was practically swooning over both of them. We ended with a creme brulee that was average - not bad, not great - simply forgettable.

In the end the Bristol is a very good, dependable restaurant. The service is excellent and the food very good. They serve fresh cheese bread (right off the oven sheet) and it is delicious. But the bisque! It is worth the visit all by itself...

“Atmosphere, Food, & Service, all Top Rate-”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

It was a wonderful evening out at the Bristol. We are never disappointed - their brunches, food & wine are consistently great. I tried the lobster mac & cheese this last time – very tasty and of course their crab cakes are a favorite of ours. When it comes to dessert, our choice is always the carrot cake.

Steve was our server and made it a very relaxing evening out for a delayed Birthday. He was also serving a rather large party next to us that evening and still never missed a beat on making sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for making my special evening out a great one! Look forward to returning soon.

“Outstanding Seafood & Service.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We have been to Bristol’s several times, most recently yesterday evening for dinner. We have never tried their smoked salmon flatbread appetizer until last night, and it was excellent. Next time we want to try their duck flatbread appetizer.

We love their seafood selection. The yellowfin tuna is wonderful (I love it blackened). Their swordfish is also terrific.

Their service has always been consistently good, and they have a very nice wine list.

Bristol is a must try.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We visit this restaurant every couple months and it is consistently good. My favorites are the shrimp enchiladas and the trout. The seafood sampler appetizer and the lobster spring rolls are also yummy. Our grown kids love the lobster Mac and cheese! And of course, the biscuits are sublime. Oh, and did I mention that they have one of the best Cosmos in town...?!

My husband & I always go to the Bristol for our anniversary & we are never disappointed-it is the best! We love seafood & they always come through. Atmosphere is fantastic, staff is wonderful, cordial, very knowledgeable. We have eaten at the bar for a fun night out at times & Sunday brunch is fabulous! You will never go away hungry from the Bristol!!
