    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    With a view of the Atlantic, over the Nantasket public beach, Bridgeman's has a more "fine dining" vibe than the usual beach front. The wine list is extensive at the high end, but it failed to hit my lower cost Italian wine preferences. The sirloin steak was very good, but the veal marsala was excellent. Prior to this visit, I had thought this restaurant was somewhat expensive. This is far from the truth. While you can get into serious financial trouble with the wine list, you can also have a very satisfying pasta "half-order" for under $10.00 ! I believe this kind of pricing (like Saporito's) can turn the casual patron into a regular. Another great option for the south shore and the list of fine dining establishments in Hull.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/8/2011
    The food at Bridgeman's was very good, and the decor of the restaurant was nice. My only complaint was that there were only ourselves and a couple other parties, and we were all put at tables right next to each other, when the whole rest of the room was empty. We had our son in his umbrella stroller since he is able to sleep in it better than in his car seat, and we had to keep moving him around to accommodate other people sitting down at the next table. The hostess seemed very unhappy with us for having the stroller in the restaurant; had we been given a table apart from the others, it wouldn't have been an issue. An annoying experience but again, the food was very good, worth a visit.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 4/16/2011
    We were a party of nine, and the table we had was spacious and comfortable. We were quite far from the window and really outstanding view of the ocean (next to last table toward back of the restaurant, much further than I expected based on telephone call), but it was pleasant. The food was delicious -- I had scallops and risotto and I tasted the steak and the haddock -- and the wine recommended by the waiter was excellent. One of the appetizers, eggplant parmesan, was the best I remember. The service was pleasant, but a little slow. (We had a limo allowing 2.5 hours to eat, but we went over.) Overall, though, a really nice evening. I will certainly return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 4/16/2011
    My husband and I went to Bridgeman's for a rare date night. From the moment we walked in, our reception and following service was impeccable. Quiet and reserved, yet attentive, our waiter, assisted by several others, kept on top of our needs. We had a lovely corner window seat overlooking a stormy ocean. We each started out with a delicious soup - mine the pea soup special of the night. Our salads had a tasty vinaigrette, but not quite enough and were a bit dry. My husband ordered the pasta bolognese, which was hearty and delicious. I had the veal marsala, which although had a fantastic flavor included a tough grissly piece of veal. This was disappointing and I felt should have been caught during prep. The molten chocolate cake was amazing!

    The food every time was delicious and came out promptly. We came in a group of 8 and ordered almost everything off the menu. All the specials were great in addition to the normal menu items. I especially enjoyed the sauteed clams appetizer and my scallops entree. We all had a wonderful time. The server and all of the wait staff were very attentive and helpful. Will definitely come again

    Dined on 4/9/2011
    We made reservations via open table and arrived at Bridgeman's 20mins before our reservation. The host asked us to have a seat at the bar and return at 7pm, we did this only to be told that it would be a few more minutes and they would come and get us. They came for us 20mins later. At first we were a little put off having to wait but when the host brought us to our table (that they said they wanted us to occupy) at the window looking out over the ocean our disappointment became utter happiness! It was absolutely beautiful and worth the wait! To top it all off our meal was outstanding! From the soup, salad and entrees we were entirely thrilled with our experience here and will definitely be returning. T Y for the wonderful night.

    Bridgeman's did an outstanding job with our party of 10 (five couples). They set us up upstairs, where we had a bit more privacy and were unafraid to make a bit of noise (mostly laughing). The food was excellent, with options to please everyone in the group. The service was spectacular; when our ten entrees were ready, a stream of staff served them all, one right after the other. We lingered long after dinner, and everyone had a wonderful time! Kudos to Bridgeman's!

    the food is always generally very good here. on our latest trip, my husband and i both had their winter salad with cranberries, poaches pears, and greens. the salad was great, but a bit over dressed for our liking. for entrees i had the scallops with and artichoke risotto - again good, but the scallops were slightly over done. my husband had their duck and rosotto and thought it was great. the best part of the dinner - besides the wine - was their bread pudding and vanilla ice cream dessert. the bread pudding was fantastic and the melting ice cream was a perfect compliment.

    Went here for dinner for Valentine's Day. Food was absolutely amazing. It was quiet without being eery. It's a very small restaurant which enables them to create special dishes and make things very romantic. I'd definitely recommend this as a place to go for dinner on any regular night, no special occasion needed.
