Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "My first experience at Bridgeman's was at lunchtime - it was very nice. This time there were 8 of us at 6:30 on a Saturday evening, we had reservations. We ordered appetizers, they were good accept for the bruschetta - the wood fired bread was burnt and tasted terrible - we had to send it back. We then waited an hour and a half for our entrees. We then made the mistake of ordering dessert - we were told that the chocolate molten cake would take about 20 minutes; we waited 50 minutes for the desserts. If the waitress had been "savvy" I think she would have talked to the manager and at least have offered some kind of comp. We could not recommend this restaurant in the future."

  • "We had a very good dinner at Bridgeman's. Food was excellent and we especially liked the Frutti Di Mare squid ink pasta. We had a very nice Italian wine with dinner. Desserts were delicious. The wait staff is always attentive and solicitous. What was particularly notable was the Executive Chef was ill and the other chefs filled admirably. It may have been slightly slower in the kitchen but quality was not compromised. They did a superb job."

  • "Bridgeman's has been a long-time favorite of ours, but it has changed over the last couple years. The food has declined, and the service, while still adequate, doesn't have the warmth that it once had. My veal piccata (a favorite of mine) was definitely NOT a piccata; rather than the light, lemon and white wine I'm accustomed to, the sauce was heavy, dark, and a bit meaty. Anyway, it's the 2nd or 3rd time we've been disappointed. It'll be awhile before we go back."

  • "I had made a reservation for what I thought was 4 people but as it turned out it was only for two. They were very accommodating and took us in right away. The service was great to start off with. We had drinks and appetizers which came out in a timely fashion. The salad special of the night was outstanding. The flatbread lobster appetizer was great as well. Then we had to wait for a very long time for the main course. They told us that they were just finishing up the swordfish which would have been the easiest to cook from our standpoint. Unfortunately when the food did come out the swordfish was still pink on the inside. That being said the rest of the foood was great and would definitely go back. They did comp the swordfish."

  • "Bridgeman's is our new favorite place on the South Shore. Food is good - try the eggplant stack with spicy marinara sauce. We were lucky enough to get a window seat, which has a view of Nantasket Beach. White linen tablecloths give the restaurant an elegant feel. Service needs some work. Someone was at the door, but didn't seem to be greeting anyone. The waitress didn't go out of her way to check to see if we needed anything. Despite the mediocre service that night (we've been before and gotten great service), we'd still go back for the food and ambiance. I'd recommend reservations for a weekend evening."

  • "We were going to Hull for to hear some music and decided to try Bridgeman's based on some good reviews. It was really a great find. We chose to sit outside on the patio and could watch the sun set (although not from our table). The food was really delicious. We had a lobster type bisque and the duck with figs. We don't eat a lot so we split everything and we both loved our meal. The cocktails also were made well and tasted great. I had a blackberry mojito which I highly recommend. After dinner we moved over to the fire area which is surrounded by comfortable and attractive seating. The waitress served us dessert -- rhubarb crunch (warm) with vanilla ice-cream. Yummy! This was a very romantic setting and the outside patio was fab!"

  • "Wow, we have found a new favorite rest! The food was awesome! We enjoyed the Bruschetta with olive tapenade, my husband was thrilled with the whole belly clam app & my children devoured the mozzarella & salami sticks. We also, enjoyed the Shrimp Scampi & Linguine, so delicious just the right amount of butter. The Eggplant parm was perfect and even though there was no 'kids menu' in writing, our Server offered up their children's options, when she realized we were struggling to find something kid-friendly off the House Menu. Thanks you Lynne for giving us a great experience. The desserts were amazing, Tiramisu gelato filled profiteroles, berries and lemon crème, and of course crème Brulee. we're already planning our next visit!!! "

  • "This was our first visit to Bridgeman's and we were very pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was very good, from the buttermilk ranch dressing on the salad to the dessert sampler of chocolate lava cake, strawberry rhubarb crisp and profiterole. I had sirloin steak and my wife had scallops, both of which were cooked to perfection. The restaurant was quiet when we first arrived at 5:15, but by 6:00 it had filled and there was a friendly crowd at the bar, but the noise never became intrusive. Our waitress was very attentive and we had a good ocean view from our table. The open kitchen and restrooms were spotlessly clean! This was a great find among the pizza and burger joints along Nantasket beach and we will definitely return."

  • "It was a girls' day out on Saturday there were 5 "girls" including a 6 year-old and a 7-year old. Our host and waiter were extremely friendly, the food was fabulous and the desserts were spectacular! It was a wonderful lunch and we look forward to dining there again."

  • "We experienced the best service in memory. Everyone involved in serving us was professional, friendly, and had a perfect level of attentiveness . Large selection of food and wine offerings (our meals were excellent) and a nice view of the ocean from all seating. The noise level was energetic and fun and the only criticism I have was the music piped in was too loud and unnecessary - it diminished our experience."

  • "Took my sister who lives in San Francisco for a birthday dinner here. Everything was well prepared and good to the last bite. Tomatoe sauce on eggplant dish was zippy and particularly outstanding. Go for the sampler dessert which is large enough to share with one or two others. Yum!! The sunset view and gentle ocean breeze through the open windows in the upstairs dining room was an extra special treat. "

  • "We were given a gift certificate to the restaurant. Was not familiar with it at all and will definitely be returning. The crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had (and I grew up in Maryland). The fried dough dessert was fabulous. Service was great. Everyone checked in in you and made sure to help each other's table out. The view over the oven from the second floor dining room was beautiful. "

  • "We made reservations for dinner for after the theatre in Norwell. I was not sure what to expect, and sometimes trying a new restaurant is hit or miss. Well this one was a hit! Food was great, service top notch, and the wine selection was exceptional. We were a party of 5 and not rushed at all. We took our time and enjoyed the dinner and company. Highly recommended!!"

  • "Years ago we would go here many times- This was probably our 2nd visit in the last 6 years. - Service was ok- entrees were very good- not much on presentation but the taste was fine. We had veal picatta and pan seared scallops. Four scallops for $26 didn't seem like good value to me- The desserts were very expensive. Wine list is lacking. "

  • "My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They were each different takes on meals we've had many times at many restaurants: roast duck and chicken saltimbocca. The kitchen readily adapted my wife's meal to accommodate her cheese allergy. Service was attentive, but not overly so. All-in-all, a wonderful dinner to celebrate Mother's Day."

  • "Went to Bridgemans for Mothers Day dinner. Have eaten there quite a few times and have never been disappointed. Although they were busy the sevice and food were excellent. Nice water view of Nantasket beach from the second floor. Friendly relaxed service. Lobster ravioli and the Panko crusted Haddock were both excellent. Quiet relaxed atmosphere."

  • "Had a three generation Mother's Day celebration to welcome our daughter and her husband and two little girls back to the East Coast from living in San Francisco for nine years. The staff was attentive to our needs for a two year old and brought our meals quickly. Delicious meals. Only problem was that the molten lava cake took forever to bake (the make them individually) and it was a little burned, but still good. Lovely setting across from the long beach in Hull, where we took several photos to chronicle our wonderful day."

  • "Took my mom to Bridgeman's for Mother's Day and the restaurant did not disappoint! Right off the bat, we were seated and our waitress was outstanding. She was attentive but not overwhelming. Wine list is impressive and the menu is terrific. Bridgeman's gives you that classy, top-notch, Boston feel without the commute. It is not cheap so be ready to spend and it is worth it!"

  • "The food was fantastic, the scallops where done perfectly more than enough. The dishes were not overly spiced, just right. The wait staff could not have been more attentive, couldn't remember the last time my water glass was filled so much. Best dinner we had when visiting my mother in law in Hingham. "

The view of the ocean from the 2nd floor is spectacular at sunset. Prices are very reasonable considering the elegant setting & fantastic food and service. I'd highly recommend this fine restaurant.

  • "We opted for Easter dinner for two this year and made reservations on Open Table. We were greeted warmly, seated upstairs at the window overlooking the ocean - lovely!! Wait staff was excellent -attentive, pleasant, friendly, and efficient. We were a little disappointed in our entrees as we chose from the specials and both meats -prime rib and rack of lamb- we're very tasty, cooked as requested, but drier than we would have expected. We did not bring this to our server's attention as it was not an immediate concern. The calamari appetizer and salads were delicious, and overall we enjoyed our meals and would definitely go back!! "

  • "I made reservations and we arrived an hour early and we enjoyed sitting upstairs at the bar for a cocktail. I did request a window table which we received, the waiter was very good, they took there time with each course, chowder, salad, and meal was great just wish i had room for their desert which looked great and we did not feel rushed at all. I will recommend this place to friends when they are in the Hull area."

Still found the food to be consistently great using only fresh ingredients. Lots of choices on the menu, had a hard time choosing. Would definitely recommend for special occasions or any time you are looking for a special meal. The second floor has great views of the ocean. They also offer an impressive and outstanding wine list. Waitress was friendly and attentive yet professional. Would definitely go back!"
