“Fabulous Valentine's Day dinner!”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

My husband & I recently travelled with his nephew & wife down the Oregon coast to California in our motorhomes. We found ourselves in Florence, OR on Valentine's Day. I asked the RV park manager for suggestions on a nice restaurant, and she pointed us in the direction of the Bridgewater Seafood Restaurant.

I wasn't sure that would work, as one of our party doesn't eat seafood. But I was assured that they had other options on the menu. Off we went.

BEST move we ever made! Even tho' the restaurant was packed, the hostess made every effort to squeeze us in (no reservations, of course!). After only 15 minutes wait, she showed us to a lovely table! We were thrilled - and starving. Next worry was the menu. We shouldn't have been concerned. The menu was extensive & offered many other options beyond seafood.

The service was fantastic - friendly, helpful staff. The food was incredible! And for what I view as a 5 star restaurant, the price was reasonable. My meal was about $20 (seafood linguini), and that was about the same as everyone else's.

I would highly recommend the Bridgewater Seafood Restaurant if you're ever in Florence, OR! Lovely little town, fabulous eating establishment.

“Interesting Menu, Fresh and Delicious”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

At my brother's suggestion, we treated my father to lunch at Bridgewater Ocean Fresh Fish House & Zebra Bar on a rare beautiful FEB day at the Oregon Coast. The atmosphere was bright and light, with large windows so as to watch passerbys and enjoy the sun. We had the shrimp melt, the salmon sandwich, and the vegetable salad with veggie soup; everything was fresh and well prepared, generous portion, and delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive, but we thought it took a bit too long for our meals to be presented. I would definitely make this restaurant my first choice when eating out in Florence, OR!

“Great Atmosphere, consistently good offerings”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We first visited Bridgewater because we were unable to get a reservation at another highly-touted restaurant. After three years and four visits, we still have not visited the other restaurant! Whenever we're even CLOSE to Florence, we look at each other, laugh, and head into town to take in our favorite atmosphere, food and friendliness. (And we're NOT an easy sell.) As long as it remains the same, we will be back.
