Second time at the restaurantSecond time at the restaurant and can't wait to go back a third time. The salmon dish was amazing and so was the wine. The service was also excellent.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerBernard is a fabulous waiter-always enjoy his attention to service.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and serviceDelicious! Only complaint is it was so noisy, our party of four had trouble hearing one and another.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert was amazing!! AppleDessert was amazing!! Apple pie was SOO good. I may go back and just get that!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent...but really noisyService is perfect, food is absolutely delicious.
We had the "best butcher for 2" and the meat was one of the best we ever had.
We had a great night, but it was a Friday night, the bar was crowded and really too noisy.
After our 10 first minutes seated we were still wondering whether to stay or leave because of the noise.
Then our cocktails arrived with appetizers and the fun began...
I highly recommend this place to people looking for excellent food but probably a weekday will be a little quieter.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall PlatesA great feature at Bridget's is their small plates option. I had two seared sea scallops with delicious corn salsa; my two friends had a small crab cake with accompaniments. This allows you to have soup (a delicious mushroom bisque) or dessert after (bananas foster and chocolate chip bread pudding). Service was very good and drinks are always excellent. They have a very nice bar area with seating by windows. Bridget's never disappoints!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for our anniversaryWe went here for our anniversary dinner, and was not disappointed! The resturaunt was a bit noisy (due to the happy hour at the bar) but it was fine with us. Other people might have been upset at the noise level!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful restaurant. HighlyWonderful restaurant. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for somewhere to go for a special occasion. Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. Food was terrific.
My only disappointment was the amount of wine provided per glass (minimal at best) if not ordering a bottle.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated promptly; attentiveSeated promptly; attentive service. Food was very good. Noise level was intolerable...a function of granite tabletops without cloths, tile floor, and proximity of table to the bar.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is becoming one of my favoriteRestaurants. I love the menu and the wine list. A bit loud but always a good meal.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great foodWe dined here for my sons 18th birthday. Great steaks. Great service.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMALWAYS love dining at Bridget's!Was looking for a wonderful restaurant to take our mom to for Mother's Day brunch and was SO happily surprised to see that Bridget's offered a Mother's Day Brunch!! Everything was beyond perfect- as always... From service, ambiance, drinks to delicious food!! All enjoyed...thank you!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBravo for Butcher blocks!At the end of each school year, I take my college-age son out for the meal of his choice.
That usually means steak, and while Ruth's Chris and Morton's are good, we've already been that route.
I was looking for something new, so I went online to see what was in the area. Once we saw Bridget's Surf n Turf Butcher block for two, the choice seemed clear.
As soon as we saw Bridget's, I knew we had made a good choice; first thing Brad said was, "Hey, this place looks really nice!"
Very lively bar scene, friendly and accommodating staff, excellent neighborhood atmosphere. And, the Surf n Turf was amazing!
I'm coming back to try the prix fixe menu....or maybe some of the small plates....so many yummy choices!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodYou can't go wrong at Bridget's. Diverse menu, Great food. Fun atmosphere.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food, from SaladsExcellent Food, from Salads and Apps to the incredible Steaks. Very good Guitar/Singer in Bar area where we sat, Maybe a bit too loud for our Dinner conversation, but we enjoyed listening to him.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to goFor a Local steakhouse the service and food are top notch! They have a very well versed staff that can tell you anything you need to know about their menu and wine listings. We go there for special occasions and are always very satisfied with our meals and experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good menu selection.Very good menu selection. Strip Steak was as good as most Steakhouses and the salad with mixed greens, beets and walnuts was excellent. Our other entree was Jambalaya which was spicey but just the right amount and very fresh seafood. I would go back again and would try some of the other entrees that sounded wonderful.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time at the restaurant.Our first time at the restaurant. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was very good. The noise was awful. We couldn't have a conversation without shouting.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DinnerWe had a very good dinner. We started off with salads(Caesar and Wedge)that were very good. We both had steak that was cooked perfectly as we had ordered. Our waiter was excellent and our food came out very quickly.
We had a table in the front room by the windows. With the doors closed, there was not much noise. Anywhere in the bar area is very noisy.
Bridgette's, being in Ambler, is in a perfect location for diners outside the city looking for a quality meal. The food is very good, though the ambiance is not quite 'steakhouse'.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, incredibly noisy barThe food was great but the restaurant is incredibly noisy (this was a Saturday night) and the bar noise made it impossible to have a conversation in the dining area unless you yelled--which increased the decibel level further. We'll give it another shot because the food - New York strip and a sea bass special over risotto - were very well prepared.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy two sisters and I dinedMy two sisters and I dined at Bridget's early on a Friday evening (~ 5:30pm). We were celebrating a birthday, and had the dining room pretty much to ourselves during most of our meal, which we enjoyed. My sisters both selected the prix fixe option, and I ordered the rib-eye entree. To say we were satisfied with our meals would be an understatement...I think we would have licked our plates if it was socially
acceptable:-) Great restaurant, delicious food, and very attentive waitstaff. Three cheers!!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visit. Great place.First time visit. Great place. A shame we had not been there before! Good selection of food and wine.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI never had a bad meal here..theI never had a bad meal here..the food is outstanding. It's nice to have an upscale dining experience in the suburbs. Great wine list, interesting cocktails and the service is great. Perfect for having a drink @ bar with friends, romantic dinner, or group dining. You won't be disappointed!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBridget's is way overpriced.Bridget's is way overpriced. The only reason we went there was someone had given us a gift certificate. We ended up spending a small fortune, even with the gift card. I will not go back. It has a reputation for being way too expensive and not worth the cost.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are never disappointedWe are never disappointed at Bridget's. The seared scallop starter special was delicious and unique. The crab cake is always amazing. Most notable this trip was our server: Becky C was fantastic. Friendly but not too chatty, alert but not intrusive. A great server rounds out a positive experience at a restaurant. Thanks, Becky!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWE HAVE EATEN THERE THREEWE HAVE EATEN THERE THREE TIMES IN PAST SIX MONTHS. THE FOOD EACH TIME HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING!! WAIT STAFF IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND HELPFUL. BEST FOOD WE HAVE HAD IN PHILY SUBURBS.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMClient DinnerI have been to Bridget's many times and have always had a pleasurable experience. This time I brought three business clients with me and they all enjoyed the ambiance, service and especially the food. The specials were great, and the wine list was extensive while being reasonably priced. I would recommend Bridget's for any special occasion.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for our anniversaryWe went here for our anniversary and could not have been happier. there were more peope than I expected for a Wednesday night but noise level was good and the staff was very friendly attentive. And of course, the food was amazing!! My one and only complaint was I wish there had been more appetizer options that did not include pork or shellfish. I love great food and trying new things but I don't eat either due to religious reasons.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food specials are good,The food specials are good, but the waitstaff should tell the customers the cost when they describe the specials. On two occasions now I have been surprised that the special was significantly more expensive than what I view as comparable menu items.3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly 1 complaint - the musicOnly 1 complaint - the music that was in the background wasn't at the wrong volume, it was a poor selection. 70's dance, really? Troglodyte? Donna Summer? A beautiful room and delicious food, but what an unfortunate distraction.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was my 4rd or 5th timethis was my 4rd or 5th time at bridgets and it was again very good 2 warnings that perhaps will make your meal more enjoyable are:
(1)ask for a table in the separate room if you are with people and want to have a conversation!!!too hard to hear in the main area and the room near the steps!! our 4some could not converse. (2)also ask for ALL sauces on the side if butter is not your thing! whew!
i do love a restaurant that has delicious bread, wonderful salads, and grrrreat hard to find "braised shortribs" as this restaurant has !! perhaps try an off nite for better noise level!12/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
