The food was excellent. I had black grouper, while my husband had the mixed grill. Others in our party had mahi mahi and crab cakes. Everyone was very pleased with their selections. Our server, Marshall, was very attentive but unobtrusive.

Food was amazing! Loved 1/2 price wine bottle promotion on Sundays. The only ding is that the "alcove" where we were seated was cold. May have been due to the outside temperature. Awesome dining experience.

It was GREAT. Only thing is what we went for ; Fried Lobster tails: they only had for two days.
It needed to be longer because I would be back to get it again TODAY!

We used to go to Bristol's a few times a year. New Year's Eve was the first time we had been back due to the pandemic. I was not happy that only a few of the staff wore masks. I also saw an employee use the same cloth to clean multiple tables without even rinsing it off or using a spray cleaner, which is just spreading germs from 1 table to the next. Now to the food, the prices have gone up which I expected but the quality went way down. The mashed potatoes were just a hard glob on the plate, no flavor and certainly not fresh. My husband's dinner which cost over $60.00 was not right. He sent his steak back because it was not med rare as ordered, it was medium well. The next steak was only slightly better and he ate it because at that point everyone else was done. It wasn't very busy and our food took a very long time to come out. Our order was wrong throughout the entire night, at 1 point the waiter argued with us about it. I would have thought given all the issues a manager could have come by to say sorry your experience has not been good, but I guess he couldn't be bothered. Also for my vegetables, I got what looked to be the few scraps left over because it certainly was not a full serving.

We had reservations for 6:45. We were sat on time and a server brought out the bread but no drink orders taken. After 30 min we had to go find a server to order. Server was good and friendly and said the kitchen was behind and she was helping out the cooks. After ordering it took almost 30 minutes to receive our food. Several of us had fish and fried potatoes. The fish was great but the fried potatoes were old and dried out and inedible as was the asparagus. We were not in a hurry but we’re disappointed on how long everything took. I understand places being short staffed but disappointing when you have reservations. They did give us some free dessert

We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Our waiter was very attentive to us, explaining the menu items since my husband was a first time customer. He answered all of our questions. I ordered the creme brulee for dessert thinking I would get the flames at my table. the dessert was very tasty.

Fish was raw like tuna raw but on mahi mahi. Waitress tried to say it was just the color of the fish, plainly RAW. Nasty over priced underwhelming.

The seafood at Bristol‘s is always amazing. Unfortunately, and presumably because they are shortstaffed, the service was slow. We were initially seated at a table near the front and nobody even approached us for over 10 minutes, but when several groups walked by unmasked, we asked to move to a new table. At this point, our waiter did pay attention to us and actually timed our dinner perfectly. Bizarrely, we had oysters and they could not find cocktail forks for us to eat them with, and we shared one fork.

The firecracker cauliflower appetizer was a great start to our meal. Just the right size and the sauce was outstanding. I ordered the sea bass from the fresh fish menu and it was just as the waitress described--buttery and delicious. The asparagus was cooked perfectly. Our server, Laura, was friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this place if you like great seafood.

We started going to Bristol's in 1986, still going there.
If you haven't been there, you should go.
Find out why we still go, for yourself.

Excellent food, crab cake appetizers seem to be getting smaller and more expensive ($21) each time we visit. Big Eye Tuna was amazing but be sure to eat while hot for best taste. Sea Bass was really good.
