    We made a reservation and were greeted by the owners when we arrived. We were offered a window view table on the second floor which was excellent. The menu is Italian with plenty of choices as well as nightly specials. Everything was very tasty. My wife had the swordfish special and I had the eggplant stack. Both were great. Our only issue was the servers were spread too thin and there was gaps in the service. When our server was at our table she was excellent. But she had 5/6 tables all seated around the same time which is challenging. All in all though, it was really a great night.

    We had a fabulous dinner in a very nice setting. The waitress was very friendly, so was the host. The food was great, they had no problem substituting something on the menu. The noise level was not bad we were able to have a conversation without the need of raising our voices. Great experience.

    The food here always impresses and the owners create a warm and welcoming atmosphere that extends to everyone. I have been here on and off over the course of two decades and the food is consistently excellent. New Zealand lamb special was tremendous this weekend as was the popular eggplant stack! Fun for groups and romantic for couples - a great spot!

    The dinner at Bridgeman's was delicious. The Italian "Nachos" were outstanding. Ordered the Haddock just for the Lobster Mashed potato. The lobster mashed potato did not disappoint. My friend order the Cod with pesto mashed potato. The cod melted in my mouth!

    I asked for a table upstairs by the windows we were not seated there. There were tables open by the window. I did not ask for the table assuming it was being held for a reservation, that was not the case. At this restaurant a table for two in the middle of the floor is not very comfortable and small feeling.

    Bridgeman's was recommended by foodies friends of us and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone looking for fine food with a great atmosphere close to the ocean. The outdoor patio with lounging area with gaz firepit is a very nice added feature. Disclosure: we had dinner on a Sunday evening at 7:30PM: the restaurant was very quiet, which was welcomed for us as we came with a 4 week old in his stroller.

    We had an excellent dinner. The restaurant is billed as Italian, but traditional Italian items are limited, but choice of fish is excellent. Food was well prepared and service attentive. One nit. One diner did not like his bread salad and only took a few bites. The waiter removed the salad but not the item from the bill.

    The food is delicious, and the service/environment is outstanding, but I was a little disappointed that the upstairs was closed without notice. Due to a special occasion, I requested an upstairs window seat but got there and was told upstairs was closed. They did accommodate well though, and I got a nice downstairs window seat, just without much of a view.

    My food was good(seared scallops with risotto)...friends with us did not enjoy theirs as much. It was excessively noisy and although we were upstairs(which is better than first floor) we looked out on a parking lot before we could see the ocean. Our waitress was also somewhat rude. I would not rush back or recommend to friends.

    Everything about this place was amazing - the view, the food, the service. If you're looking for a good water view, request a table upstairs by the window. We had the perfect table tucked away in a corner with a spectacular view of the sunset. The service was top notch - our waitress was very attentive. The only down side to this place is the prices - many of the dishes are overpriced, so go in expecting to pay higher prices for things like Chicken Parm, which shouldn't be a $21 dish. Overall - great place!

The grilled bruschetta came out as soggy bread with a cherry tomato salad on top. the haddock with lobster mashed potato was_ warm_ and there was actually one piece of lobster meat in the mashed potatoes.

    We went to this restaurant to celerate our 2nd year anniversary. We found the food great and the service was amazing. Our servant was a girl and I think she was new to her job but she was trying to do her best to serve us and make sure we enjoy the food and the vibe as much as possible. We recommend the place although it is a bit pricey.

    Just the spot for a quiet dinner after a busy week. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. The lobster flat bread pizza was delicious as were our dinners of swordfish and haddock. If you want to see the ocean ask for a table upstairs. Tables by the windows are best but hard to come by. Even without the view we had a great dinner with lovely ambiance. I'm partial to white tablecloths so they were an extra treat. Drinks were tasty and potent. The wine list has a nice choice of half bottles which is something we don't see too often.

    Joe and his team hit it out of the park every time. We love going there for special occasions and never feel rushed. While the standard menu is always solid, I highly recommend checking out the specials list. The tempura zucchini blossoms were amazing! And the chocolate Creme brûlée was the perfect finish when we thought we were already done. It's a special, seaside place and I only wish we could eat there more!!

    We wanted a place to celebrate a birthday near the ocean and figured this was a wonderful option. We all started with beet salads (very good) and the grilled calamari, which was more like steamed calamari on a salad. I was really excited b/c I can't eat carbs and when I heard the calamari wasn't breaded, I could actually eat it for a change! My favorite dish of this sort I have over and over in Panama is grilled octopus, which is really grilled and I could eat it for every meal! this paled in comparison. My entree was veal and it s tough and somewhat rubbery, although the sauce was good. Everyone else liked their entrees, the seafood fra diavolo the most, and two haddocks were "OK". Desserts were enjoyed. Meal was a bit pricey for mediocre.
