One of the best for crab cakes and seafood. Love the veggie sides, fairly large portions Whrn folks are hungry, a few choices of entree salads are a nice lunch option.

Bristol’s never disappoints. I had the almond crusted tilapia on asparagus. the berries sprinkled around it made for a delightful flavor experience.

We loved being in a quiet room with our family. That quiet and privacy allowed us to truly have conversation and an outstanding visit with each other. Our service was outstanding. The waiter, etc. could not have done a better job. The food was outstanding and the selection of food and drinks was excellent. We loved your graciousness in providing a birthday treat for our family members birthdays. It was a wonderful, special place to celebrate.

This is the third time we’ve tried their Sunday brunch buffet. The omelet bar was fantastic. The selection of foods was great. However, other than the omelet, the hot foods were just warm. It would help if the containers were covered, which would hold in the heat longer. The service as far as getting a Bloody Mary was very slow. We had to ask again where it was. The bisquits weren’t served until we asked for them. They need to hire additional staff to handle that many customers.

We went for a birthday dinner. The service by everyone was wonderful, from the folks bringing biscuits and our meals, to the people clearing our plates. The food was fantastic as always. We both had the barramundi, which was perfectly done, as were the sides. The complimentary birthday dessert and candle finished the meal and celebration nicely. We are always so pleased with our meals here.

I ordered my favorite Salmon Panzanella salad. The salmon was very undercooked so I sent it back. When it came again it was still undercooked. Our server gave me a delicious cup of lobster bisque while I waited. I took my third salad to go. Our server also seemed to be less available after the snafu and we had to wait for drinks check.

After 4 years of celebrating special occasions here, we will not be returning due to the poor service and subpar meal we experinced on our last visit. The cumlination of horrible service, food that didn't live up the expectaions based on our previous visits and a hair in our dessert we will not go back to any Bristol nor will we recommend it to anyone. I think there is something seriously lacking by way of the management and the kitchen quality control. This is very sad as we always looked forward to going here.

Had a relative come into town over the weekend, so the family went out for oysters and dinner. We sat at the bar and had such a great experience with Trey that we ended up having dinner at the bar as well. Food, drinks, & dessert were all great.

Food was fantastic as always and our waitress Taylor did a great job. My wife loves the Gumbo as a starter and I’m a huge fan of the lobster bisque. Both were served to perfection. My entree was the swordfish and it was very moist and tender. The Yukon Gold potatoes were very good also. For dessert I had the carrot cake it was both delicious and huge. I will have dessert for the next couple of nights too! Also- Sunday’s are half price on bottles of wine....some very nice bargains there too!

We have dined at Bristol’s for 40+ years and have always been very pleased. This was our worse experience ever.
Our drink orders were taken after our meal order I received the wrong glass of wine and the wrong size which was later corrected. One of our companions was told you ran out of the wine for her when she brought the rest of the drinks. So she didn’t have her drink when the rest of us were served
The entrees were mediocre, not cooked well, the green beans old and not warm. The shrimp tasted stale and also not warm. My barramundi was not cooked well and tasted old
A very disappointing meal

This was our anniversary celebration dinner. We’ve been coming to Bristol’s off and on for about 12 years without any real issues except for our most recent on New Year’s Eve. There were several issues beginning with our waitress, secondly the food presentation and thirdly the food itself.
Our waitress appeared antsy; not very engaged-not very attentive.
Ordered the fried calamari-greasy…ordered the Panko shrimp, the overall presentation and taste was greasy…the lump crab cakes lacked any taste and were chalky…the Caesar salad was bland and to top it off the peanut butter torte was very heavy (not a light mousse at all) and not very peanut buttery. Also the biscuits have changed for the worse-overall lack of flavor and high standards no longer exist ….Not sure what is going on over at Bristol’s…new chef…management changes????? A word to the wise; please lower the elevator music it ruins the ambiance.

Went for a New Years Eve dinner. Got seated right away even though we were about 30 minutes early for our reservation. Was happy about that. Our waiter was friendly but it was weird that when he started telling us who else would be helping he said a woman’s name and then said” oh no never mind not her she just got fired. So she won’t be helping tonight. Sorry we were all just talking about her. “. Don’t think we needed all that info. We ordered an appetizer and he totally forgot about it. Our main courses came and when we asked what happened to our appetizer he said oh, let me put that in for you. Um no thanks that won’t be necessary now. Two of the four meals came with the wrong sides. Our waiter did quickly address that but seriously after forgetting the appetizer order and then messing up 2 out of 4 orders?! To spend this much on dinner you sort of expect a little better attention to details. The food was all very good. Crab cakes are always amazing and were again this night.

The food was great although the ladies steaks ordered well came pretty medium/rare. They took care of correcting that and apologized for the error. Our waitress didn't seem to be quite with it. I have dined here before and the presentations of the Raspberry Ice tea and the Lobster Bisque are usually very fun to watch. I was hoping for my guests that they could enjoy that as well. Both were simply served like any other restaurant. The raspberry tea is steeped in the kitchen and brought to the table. The hot tea is then poured over a pretty glass pitcher full of ice. A glass of the iced tea is then poured and the pitcher is left at the table. The lobster bisque is normally served by bringing the bowl with a small portion of lobster in the bowl. The soup is then poured over the lobster filling the bowl. Not a big deal and it won't keep me from coming back again. My steak was tender and cooked the way I like it.
