    Smokers on South Sreet and now smokers on the porch will give you a nose full of smoke. Food is really good, and on a really nice summer evening the porch should be good - not really. Staff should attend to these things. The next table on the porch had a small dog yapping away. First trip back here was less than several previous trips. Got to think this one out.

    Ordered the chicken salad. Came in a huge bowl loaded w/greens & a few colorful items $12 After eating a few forkfuls of only greens, realized I never tasted chicken Took entire bowl apart, saw 2 pieces of chicken the size of a dime at the bottom of the bowl Called the waiter over, he ran to the kitchen & got me a little plate of chicken pieces...really tasteless & overcooked. A few weeks ago, under duress, had the salad at McDonalds..half the price, surprisingly, very tasty w/ranch dressing...really underestimated their chicken salad. Not sure I would go back again. Was this an accident, or trying to get one over on the ladies who lunch, that are not part of the young crowd.

    We enjoyed our visit to Bridget Foy's. All seven of us got different items and six of us were pleased with what we got. My brother's caesar salad came unchopped, just a head of lettuce, but we're not sure whether or not it said on the menu that it would come this way. Other than that, a great experience.

    We had a party of 12, with ages ranging from 4-65. Everyone had a great time and the menu accommodated food options for the kids. We started dining outside, but the kids quickly became restless. We asked if it was possible to move our party inside and the staff gladly made this request happen. Overall, wonderful experience on a Sunday, during brunch hours.

    This is one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. They're always changing the menu, which is great, until they get rid of one of my favorites. This evening I had two new favorites, The chicken & tortilla soup appetizer and the mushroom enchilada. The soup is to die for. I could eat it every day, the enchilada was very decadent and rich. Served in a cast iron skillet, it's oozing with cheeses and loaded with shiitake mushrooms and other wonderful surprises. Very filling and delicious. As always the service was wonderful and there's great people watching from the outdoor seats on their very large, new orleans style veranda.

    The food was good. The ambience was nice. Outdoor seating great. Now for the bad... The service was extremely slow. The food came out in a fair amount of time but it was rare to see our waiter after that. We ate our whole meal without being checked on, (wanted to ask for salt and pepper but couldn't get attention) and then waited around for another 20 minutes before seeing him to ask for coffee....then another 30 minutes to get the check.

    I was with a group of 5 for Mother's Day brunch. Our waiter was very nice but service was kind of slow. It didn't seem insanely busy (although I had no idea what was happening upstairs), so it was just kind of weird that it was slow. That being said, everyone really enjoyed their food and I'd go back again to see if this service experience was just a fluke.

    Had a great time at Bridget Foy's at an early dinner with a friend. We sat outside and because the restaurant is on South Street, it can get a little noisy, but we didn't mind and it was actually really fun to see the activity and passersby. I really love the creative and fun food. If I could, I would have ordered one of everything just to try it. We had some great food, great drinks, and a wonderful, attentive waitress.

  • Easter Dinner

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    Our visit to Bridget Foy's on Easter Sunday was perfect. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and efficient. I liked the "pace" of the restaurant. Especially on holidays I usually feel like there is a lot of pressure on the workers to hurry and get people served, give them the bill, and out the door so that another party can be seated. I usually get the feeling that the most important thing is to shove people in and out to make as much money as possible. I did not get that feeling at Bridget Foy's at all. It was relaxing, quiet and I did not feel rushed. Thank you!!

    My friend and I went for lunch. It was not that busy and our server let us know he was new. You would not have known he was knew by how good he did. The food came out fast and hot. My friend had the chicken tortilla soup to start where as I had the beef barley. Both were delicious. Than she had honey chipotle wings and I have the cheesteak croquettes. Both of those were wonderful and flavorful. Than we had dessert. They brought out a little camera that you look into to see what the desserts look like. We decided to share the s'mores. It was a perfect size and hit the spot, so delectable. I would recommend this place to anyone. Its fun, the food is delicious, the service is great. I will be going back again and again.

    I hesitate to call it a stand-by because that makes it sound a little worn. Bridget Foy's is a great place and yet it always fits the bill. It is a guaranteed good meal. The service is good; the food is tasty and warm and interesting. The ambience is warm and energetic, but one never has to shout to be heard. Frankly, I'm not sure how they do it so well all the time. It is just a fun and rewarding place to go.

    Bridget Foy's is a neighborhood restaurant that has been in the same location for quite a while. Bar is always crowded, mainly with locals. The owners are usually around and are always friendly making the place homey and inviting. We have visited the restaurant often. From early mornings on weekends for brunch to special days like New Year's eve, Valentine's and Mardi Gras. Food has been consistently good and prices reasonable. Seating has not been ever a problem, but reservations are recommended, especially during Holidays. On New Year's eve the place was mobbed but the crowd was pleasant, the place was performing smoothly, and our reservation was honored on time. Try the meatloaf, the mac and cheese (for real!), and all desserts!!!

    My friend and I went in for the Fat Tuesday specials. I'd never been there before. I wouldn't say anything was fantastic, but it was good. The $5 Hurricanes on special weren't very strong, but were ok for $5. And the food is basic American bar food. If a friend was going out in that area and wanted something decent but inexpensive, I'd recommend this place.

    We went to Bridget Foys for a night out with good friends and were delighted with the food from appetizers to dessert. The mac and cheese fritters and mushroom flatbread were excellent and came out quickly, fresh and hot. Our dinners were also excellent - lamb shanks with mushroom risotto was out of this world good as was the lobster ravioli, and the beef short rib tacos. The desserts were also good, but not to the level of the dinners. All in all, fantastic meal and definitely planning on going back.
