Everything here is so fresh. From the poke appetizer to the sear on the scallops, top notch.

We went to Bristol's on Sunday for lunch. I wasn't aware that they only served Brunch on Sunday's from 10-2 and was disappointed but decided to try it.
I am generally not a fan of Sunday Brunch. I believe most restaurants have mainly breakfast items and that they are overpriced.
This was not the case at Bristol's!! There were the traditional breakfast items BUT in addition , Sushi, salads, cheese, fruits, breads, Prime Rib, Ham, smoked salmon, shrimp, ahi tuna, Lobster M/C, grits, vegetables, potatoes, desserts. Everything was fresh andam very good.
I am now a fan and I will return for Sunday Brunch.

outstanding Sunday brunch,,went with long time friend, was cold outside and we both ordered hot tea and our waiter constantly made sure our tea water was warmed up. cannot remember his name but was very pleased with his service..And the food,,,wow never thought i would like sea food for breakfast, the tuna is always my favorite. The oysters were incredible. one small complaint. the little bitty biscuits are too small for biscuits and gravy, but im nit picking, i lolk forward to going back again,,,

Our waiter Kevin paid us no attention after we ordered our food. The next time we saw him was to pick up our empty plates. No refills, how's the food, nothing. The other waiters at tables near us were very attentive to their tables. Kevin was nice but either forgot about us or didn't care. On the way out I advised the host staff of the issue and asked them to pass it onto management. Not the kind of service I expect for a $140 meal. I've gotten more attentive service at Applebee's. Needless we decided to forego dessert as to not give them anymore of our business. What a disappointment.

Very slow service, apparently management has a server have 1 table on patio while 3 other servers were also handling the patio with tables scattered about the restaurant. We asked for biscuits 3 times and “I’ll tell your server” isn’t acceptable especially at this price point. Finally received biscuits after 4th request after entrees delivered.

Heard it was one of the best brunches in KC, so we went with a group of friends. Couldn’t have been more disappointed. The food was average, the omelet bar being the highlight and the carving station being the low point. The carving station meet was cold, and therefore not very appetizing. There are average discounts on drinks, but overall your money is better served at other places like McCoys or The District for brunch.

Reserved my table of 5, on a Friday evening. Service was very slow compared to similar restaurants. The place was not hardly as busy as I have seen it before and we didn't get our dinner biscuits until dinner. The waitress made excuses as to why that kept happening. It was hard to get a refill on water. Shrimp appetizer was fabulos, but By the time I got my entree, the fries were cold and hard.

We went for Easter Brunch. The hot buffet was right near the front door and it was cold out. Everything on the bar was between cold and lukewarm depending on which end it was on. I was surprised about the side dish options, very few and not great. If there was lobster in the lobster mac and cheese, we couldn't find it. The peel and eat shrimp was good and the prime rib was good, higher quality you could tell. No waffle bar, desserts were tiny and just okay. It wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be at $32 a person, but it wasn't worth that.

Easter brunch was discusting. Thank goodness for the guy making fresh omelettes. Nothing else was fresh. Food that should have been hot was cold. Very few choices. Where are the pastries? Fresh turkey? Green salad? Grilled salmon? Roasted potatoes? Brussel sprouts? Where is the healthy food? Could have had better food cheaper at Perkins. Will never come back for buffet again. My ice tea was also stale! A few days old.

I reserved An Easter brunch for 4 a month in advance. We had to wait 15 minutes when we arrived but it was very busy so we were ok with that. We were then seated in a booth next to a long table of kids who were loud. There families were at another king table. The wait staff was very slow. We were offered drinks as I was walking to the buffet line. I suggested he come back when we sat back down. By this time it was nearly 25 minutes into us being in the restaurant.
The food was not replenished and pretty picked over when we went though the buffet. We have had brunch there previously and this was definitely not the quality and selection we expected. Very disappointed. $35 each for basically a breakfast and not a good one.

The Bristol has become our go-to for special Holiday meals. We've done Thanksgiving, Valentine's, and Easter buffets, as well as regular Sunday Brunch buffet, and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and impeccable, and the service is exceptional. The only negative we have is that some of the patrons don't seem to have the good sense to wear appropriate clothing.

We have been to Bristol before and have had good experiences previously. Our main complaint up until now has been the lack of good side dishes. The seafood is usually great, but the only good side is the mashed potatoes. This time, however, the waitress was unattentive (we had to flag down another server to ask for things) and the seafood was overcooked (I suspect it was under the warming lamps too long). It will be awhile before we return to give it another chance.

Bristol's never fails me! Always great to dine at! Their Sunday Brunch is never disappointing. I celebrated our 25th anniversary and they gave us a complimentary dessert. Service is always top notch! Would always recommend this place! I had the New England Clam Chowder and my wife had the Lobster Bisque. Afterwards, I had the striped bass with Parmesan roasted potatoes and garlic haricot vert. Wife had the pretzel crusted trout (with same sides). Excellent meal!
