Diner Reviews
  • "We have eaten at Bristol's many times especially their Sunday brunch. We have eaten on Sunday holiday brunches a number of times as well including prior Easters. I give this detail as background. We were disappoint this time. They took too many reservations. I do not mean they over booked and there was a wait. That was true but minimal. I mean they put tables where tables did not belong. We had to walk behind the bar to get to ours. They had card tables out you get the picture. The problems is that they could not keep up with the food. The lines to get the food were ridiculously long. I would suggest to the manager to take a few less reservations and not put in the card tables. "

  • "This was my 4th visit to the Bristol Seafood Grill over the period of 3 years. My first 3 visits were very good, but this last visit was pretty bad. Each visit was for their Sunday brunch; twice for Mother's Day and twice for Easter. My favorites in the past have been the prime rib, lobster Mac & Cheese, grilled fish and desert selection. Even when it was good it was no bargain, but for a special occasion I didn't object. As usual, I took small portions of as many items as I could fit on my plate in search of the specially good dishes that I would return for seconds. I didn't return for seconds on anything. The Prime Rib was cold and tough, the Lobster Mac & Cheese was dry and cold, the fish was fishy and the deserts were unimaginative. "

  • "Our group of four was seated at 2:45 for the Easter buffet. The restaurant was very crowded, with people waiting on tables sitting everywhere. Our service as excellent, but that was about the highlight. The menu was very ordinary. Scrambled eggs and some breakfast meats, some salmon, and a few starches. They must have had difficulty keeping up with the demand, because the meat at the carving station was almost raw and many of the serving trays were empty. The desserts were cut so small that it looked like they had been run through a grinder. Very expensive for what we got. I was disappointed, because I had heard good things about Bristol's."

  • "Mixed service. Two servers tending to our table, one extremely friendly, one seemed bothered by our presence. It also seemed difficult for the staff to keep up with the cold side of buffet, each time my table would visit, a large portion of the buffet was not restocked."

  • "My husband and I had not eaten at Bristol for probably 40 years! When my daughter and her boyfriend asked us to join them for dinner, we were happy to say yes. We are so glad we did. We loved the ambience of the restaurant...our table was rather secluded and we were able to converse without having to talk over noise. The decor was lovely...elegant but not stuffy. The food was excellent and the portions were generous. The service was wonderful...our waiter was very attentive without being annoying. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely not wait another 40 years to return!"

  • "Seafood was good but for not being busy, waited a long time for our entrees. When you are paying these kind of prices, you expect impeccable service. Also sauces served with seafood were cold and salad was delivered without any dressing. "

  • "For a light lunch, I very much enjoyed the Achiote Fish Tacos. Perfect balance of flavors with the avocado and mango! I chose the slaw as the seasonal side and it was okay, but not very flavorful. Not a huge fan of Key Lime pie and trying a taste of my mom's dessert did not win me over. Seemed pretty standard/average. The crust looked and tasted store-bought not freshly prepared. Overall, I'm happy we chose Bristol Seafood for a birthday lunch with my family. "

  • "This restaurant does try to be a 4 star restaurant, but everything looks and tastes like something I did in Culinary School. It is not bad, it is always just OK. We had the same server twice, and it is like he is on speed, and not very professional. This place is like a kid you want to see do well, but just does not have the skills to do so. A+ for trying, but D- for the job."

  • "My wife and I went to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. This was our 6th visit to Bristol. I like the variety of seafood choices on the menu. This time I had the grilled salmon and my wife had a 6 oz. petite filet from the twilight menu. I like that they give you this option. It is a nice value ( salad, entree and dessert for $21-$27). My salmon could have used a touch more seasoning but was cooked perfectly, and my wife let me have a bite of her filet, and it was excellent. My wife had a glass of wine while I just had a glass of ice water. Our total bill came to $69 before gratuity. Overall, our experience was exactly we expected. A romantic dinner at a fairly reasonable price."

  • "This place is beautiful, has excellent service and outstanding food. The menu is substantial and the highlight is the daily seafood specials that are flown in twice a day. I didn't love the marlin I chose on my last visit, but it was prepared exactly as requested and the rest of the meal was wonderful. The mussels and calamari we ordered for appetizers were great. Highly recommended."

  • "We had special requests ( room for baby in car seat and birthday celebration) that were acknowledged perfectly. Our server was excellent . We were pleased with a Sunday wine special (bottles <$100 were half price). On previous visits we have always been very happy with food. On this visit the salads were over dressed, someone was heavy-handed with pepper on shrimp and green beans and fillet was ok but not as good has we have had before. Cookie box dessert was loaded with delicious cookies but creme brûlée was not a good consistency and disappointing. Our server offered to replace foods that were not to our liking but when you have a baby with you, time doesn't allow for do-overs and we had the expectation of first time successes."

  • "We truly enjoyed our dining experience at Bristol's Seafood Grill. It is often difficult to think of a place where one can be confident of getting good, fresh fish when living in the Midwest. We love fish and my husband and I agreed that the fresh grilled halibut we had on Saturday night was memorable. The waiter was very knowledgeable about each fish entrée and recommended it. We were delighted with the choice."

  • "I cannot believe I have lived here for twenty years and have just discovered Bristol Seafood Grill. I grew up in New England and have sadly missed an abundance of seafood restaurant choices. This was one of the best seafood meals I have had in my lifetime. From the rolls to the desserts and everything in between, just phenomenal, including the friendliness and service of the wait staff. It truly exceeded all our hopes and expectations. I enjoyed the mixed seafood grill which included their jumbo crab cakes, more crab than cake, served with a mango tartar sauce. Their pairings are so creative and so delicious - save room for the lava cake with hazelnut ice cream."

  • "The orange juice was warn, the hot tea was cold. The brunch selection was very very poor. The dessert table had what appeared to be a store bought carrot cake. Absolutely no danish available. Their version of sea food was a large bowl of shrimp with watered down cocktail sauce.I have been to brunch at Bristol's on several occasions, this was by far the worst. I have been coming to Bristol's for over 10 years, this was by far the worst dining experience. What happened did they change Management. Hilton Frontenac here I come."
