    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    We've been to Bridgeman's several times, & it never fails to impress us. The food was delicious, served by friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. 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.

    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.

    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!!

    Have been here several times in the past and have never been disappointed. Just took my friend there for a birthday dinner the other night. 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!

    Freshest ingredients expertly and creatively prepared. A blend of flavors that works in every dish we've had at Bridgeman's. Just got back from a 2 week cruise in the Western Mediterranean and nothing we ate in Italy, France, Spain or on board the NCL Jade was as good as the meal we had at Bridgeman's.

    Always have an excellent experience at Bridgeman's. Quiet dining upstairs with beautiful view of Nantasket Beach/ocean. Service friendly, quick. Caesar salad was fresh, just enough fresh parm and dressing, fresh pepper. Lobster chowder was thick and creamy, the best, with bacon, sweet potatoes and lobster. Soudough bread to start was fresh and tasty with olive oil. Baked haddock with lobster mashed was very fresh and delicous, cooked perfectly. Spicy seafood dish my husband loved, it's his favorite with lots of seafood and the spice was just right, not overpowering. Wish they had more items for kids to choose from. No specific kids menu. Daughter had chicken fingers and mashed. Creme brulee was great as well to end our meal.

    This was our second visit ti Bridgman's and it was very good. One of our party ordered the tuna speical and requested it rare and it came out medium to well. It was taken back and redone very quickly and without complaint. Everyone's meals were very good. The dining are is compacted and by the time we got to the main dish, the dining room was full and the noise level of course was high, but not enought to hinder converation.

    Very pleasantly surprised on our first visit to Bridgeman's; so much nicer inside than it appears from outside. Sat upstairs with a great view of the ocean, white table cloths, candles & soft music. I had veal piccata over artichoke ravioli, my husband had the special of the day; scallops &shirmp over spinach & cheese ravioli. Both meals were delicious & came with a house salad, bread and oil. The wine list had some very affordable choices, the pour was nice, & the cocktails were well made & perfectly chilled. Our server was very friendly & the rest of the staff very accomodating. We live on the North Shore and will defnatly make the 45 minute trip to Hull again. I recommend Bridgeman's for a romantic evening or a special occasion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/9/2014
    The view and ambiance were quite nice and it was very quiet on a Sunday evening. The food, the most important thing for me, was average at best and considering the high prices, the food should be well above average. The menu has not changed in years and perhaps the chefs are getting bored with the preparations because the lack of passion was apparent in the finished dishes. We shared 4 appetizers/small plates: Seared Scallops, Eggplant Stacks, Gnocchi and Crab Cakes. The scallops were burnt on on the bottom side and looked like they were purposely placed burnt side down because the chef knew that they were burnt, gnocchi too gummy, eggplant blah and crab cakes bland.
