Made reservations, walked in and were seated immediately. Greeted by a friendly server (Rich) who answered all of our questions. Meals were tasty and server hot. Drink glasses were always filled.

Services need to be improved.
Didnt get any biscuits until we asked for it. Steaks were overcooked. The oysters were disappointed.

Bristol Seafood never disappoints
My wife and I eat at Bristol's about 4 times annually. We have always enjoyed the food and service.
5/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was wonderful. The service was the best I have ever had in a casual type restaurant. I would go back any time I get the chance.

We have loved Bristol from the start. It never disappoints and last night was no exception. Three of us had the mixed grill with a couple orders of lobster Mac n cheese ( a must have). As usual, all was cooked well and seasoned perfectly so the flavors didn't get lost. A new choice for us was the lobste bisque and it was fantastic. We had a wonderful evening.

First Time, but Not the Last
This was our first time at Bristol and it will definitely not be our last. The food, wine and service were exceptional. The appetizer, entree' and dessert were all top knotch.

We cellibratted our 43rd wedding anniversary and had a very enjoyable time. The waitress was very good, explaining
different meals to us and giving outstanding recommendations. The food was great and the dessert gift was outstanding. We want to thank the waitress for giving us a memorable experience.

We took out-of-town guests here to celebrate my birthday, knowing that they are very particular "foodies". They are still talking about the beautifully prepared Copper River Salmon. We had an incredible meal and a memorable evening.

Best restaurant/bar in town!! Food and wait staff are amazing, fun and friendly!!! Great time as always.

Great Fathers Day Brunch!
I took my father here for fathers day brunch. The choices were great! Omelettes, waffles, fresh fruit, cheese, lots of different fish, vegetables, salad, and a dessert table (pecan pie was the highlight). The atmosphere was pleasant and peaceful despite the large crowd. My only recommendation would be for the peel and eat shrimp, although delicious, I personally am not a fan of peeling my own shrimp. Also, the hostess did not know how to register the open table points and suggest I ask the manager, I was more interested in spending time with my dad so I did not. My father said he would have to stay for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Overall it was great!

The halibut was exceptional but all the dinners are very good!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
If only every restaurant I'm the area were able to provide such great service and perfectly delicious food with the same consistency as Bristol. My wife and love this restaurant. We can't wait to come back.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food...outstanding server!
On my wife's 70 birthday we decided that Bristols was the place to go for that special dinner. Very good seafood but our server "Bo" was the top of our discussion on the way home. He called us by name, wished her a happy birthday before I told him about the reason we were there, very attentative without interferring with our discussions, and offered very good suggestions for our meal. I ordered flowers for her and, althought we arrived about 15 minutes before reservation time, they were palced on the table as we sat down. It is a little pricy but all in all, for a special occasion, a very good experience for us.
Highly recommend Bristol's for a special event and if possible, ask for Bo to be your server.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place
The food was good. I had scallops and they were cooked to perfection. Hubby had the salmon and loved it. They are a bit pricey, so we only go for special occasions or when we have a coupon. Be sure to sign up for their frequent diner program. They are very generous with coupons and also have a Sunday dinner special between 4 and 5:30 which is very reasonable. Also do specials on Tuesdays.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was our 40th wedding anniversary and it was a special night for us. The Bristol made it even more special..
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambiance was inviting and not over the top. I had the gumbo appetizer, it wasn't what I'm used to but it was good. The halibut entry was fresh and delicious. Even the sides - mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus - were done well and tasty ( the sign of a good restaurant-when the sides are as good as the main meal). The wine list was better than average, though not inspiring. A good overal experience.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were surprised and delighted with our 1st visit to Bristols. It was our anniversary and the subtle surprise touches were noticed and appreciated.

For Seafood Lovers
My husband and I visited Bristol for our one year anniversary and had a great time. Great ambiance, great food, and good service. The food was all very fresh and they had a great selection of drinks. I tried one of the wine flights, which was the perfect accompaniment to the meal. We have also visited this location in the past for happy hour. They have some great deals on appetizers and drinks, but the bar area fills up fast. A bit pricy for everyday dining, we usually visit here as a special occassion.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are now regulars here! Food is always great, service, too!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful for large groups!
I selected Bristol's for my birthday dinner with a group of 12 and we had no problem getting our reservation for a Friday night at 7. I had been there once before and knew the food was great, but I couldn't believe how nice the set-up was for our group when I arrived. We had our own long table in a lovely private room behind a curtain. They had even decorated the table with birthday confetti. Our server was great - very attentive but not hovering, knowledgeable about the wine menu, and super patient and forthcoming with the drinks while we waited for all of the guests to arrive. Our group lingered for several hours and not once did we feel hustled out the door. No hassle with separate checks. Almond encrusted tilapia was to-die-for.

Bristols in O'Fallon is excellent. Very nice environment. Servers were very good. But, it is the food that makes it special.

Bristol Never Disappoints
We had a wonderful experience at Bristol as usual. The food was wonderful. It is expensive but worth it. We had a birthday coupon that saved us $$$. Also the emails we receive let us know when there are specials.

Great Food Always!
One of our favorite places to dine in Ofallon. Food is always perfect and can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

We celebrated my parent's 40th anniversary. The service and food were excellent! The hostesses and waitress complemented my parents about the anniversary. The table was decorated to match the ruby stature of the anniversary. My favorite item is the lobster bisque.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Quality and portions of dishes
Quality and portions of dishes were very good. Seafood gumbo was good, with a lot of sausage/seafood, good bit of spice. We both opted for fresh fish - wild-caught king salmon and south pacific barramundi - and each was high quality, very nicely/simply grilled and seasoned, and served very hot. The service was attentive and friendly. My only complaint would be there was no "downtime" between the appetizer and the main dish. Almost felt a bit rushed, even though the restaurant was not at all crowded. The only negative on otherwise a nice experience.

Great first experience
I took my fiancé there for her 21st birthday and it was a great atmosphere with delicious food and great service.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
With advance request, they reserved a table away from bar and kitchen for us for quietness. And, being our anniversary, they put out a special table decoration and provided a complimentary desert. The soup and appetizer were very prompt, and the wine was in stock (half price bottles on Sunday is an attraction). My seared ahi tuna was a quite sizable portion, but it was cool in the center. Temperature was good, however, seating was too low and mushy for the table height (we tried the booth but the table was too far from the seat).
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place, great service, great food, quiet and romantic. Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed our dinner at Bristol
We enjoyed our dinner at Bristol as always. We took advantage of the St. Charles Restaurant week and got a 3 course meal. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the filet tender and delicious. the creme brulee was awesome as always.

A special evening
I booked our reservation online and mentioned in the special comments section that we were celebrating our anniversary and would like a quiet location. I was surprised to see that they actually fancified our table in red and white for the occasion, which was a really nice touch. Our table was tucked away in a corner, which I appreciated to eliminate traffic, and our waiter was so courteous as not to interrupt us on a regular basis, but still attended to our needs. The food was so perfect, that we couldn't believe it. Everything from the steak to the lobster tail and swordfish was perfectly cooked and seasoned! Bristol's may now be our go-to place for special dinners!

Very enjoyable dining
We went to Bristol's to celebrate my husband's birthday because he really enjoys seafood. It is a very nice place to go.Besides the nice decorations & candle on the table,we had a very very nice waitress. She was cheerful,helpful & just very nice. The type of waiter/waitress you have when dining can make the experience enjoyable or not enjoyable. We were very fortunate to have a very good one.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Looking for a place to go for dinner? Love seafood? This is the place to go.
Don't order the steak / fillet. You're at a seafood restaurant. They don't season it well :-)
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cathy S (our waitress) was outstanding. She had a great personality, tentative and spent the time going over different things we might want to try.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
dinner for two
Dinner was great, as usual. We enjoy going to Bristol's about once a month.

The food was excellent, from the endless supply of warm biscuits to dessert!
Our group had a variety of appetizers and entrees.
My favorites were the crab cakes and the shrimp enchiladas.
Large portion sizes, make sure to save room for dessert!!

Early Bird Special was great!
Bristol offers an early bird special for $19.50 - three course. It is always an awesome experience. We started with New Orleans Creole Gumbo (spicy) and the Lobster Bisque - quite yummy. Wine was J. Lohr Paso Robles Merlot. For entrees, we ordered filets (for a small upcharge) that were cooked to perfection. For sides my husband had the herb roasted Yukon potatoes and asparagus, and I had roasted brussel sprouts with lemon asparagus risotto. A mixture of textures and wonderful flavors. For dessert, we ended with chocolate lava cake and pecan waffles with vanilla bean ice cream and coffee. The waiter was attentive but not too much. Overall a VERY ENJOYABLE dinner.

Great seafood & atmosphere
Bar was cozy with fireplace taking the chill out of the night. Nice wine selection in the bar and they even provided their famous biscuits to munch on. Our table was ready at our reserved time and our servers provided attentive service. The was well prepared and delicious except the lobster mac'n'cheese side was dried out. Will will go back.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Being from Dallas, where there are hundreds of excellent dining choices, when my wife and I travel to MO to visit family, we make a point to break away to this restaurant. My told me this is on her top 5 restaurants list. You won't be disappointed. The bar has a great atmosphere, and the food is excellent. The tuna, crab legs, and crab cakes are great, but so is just about everything we have tried.

Great Anniversary Dinner
My wife and I dined here to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We had a very enjoyable time as we indulged in a nice Sauvignon Blanc while dining on a smoked salmon flatbread appetizer. My entree was seared ahi tuna from Hawaii complimented with sautéed French green beans and a lemon asparagus risotto. My wife had the King salmon complimented with the lobster mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts cooked in prosciutto and mustard. Our food was amazing - very nicely prepared and cooked to perfection. The service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. I highly recommend this restaurant.
