The dinner was not as good as usual, was a little disappointed. Use way too much pepper on roasted potatoes.

Perfect dining experience. The seared halibut special is particularly noteworthy. If you like halibut, don't miss it. The mahi mahi was done to perfection, too. Paula, who has been our server in the past, was spot on with everything. Great food and great service. Thank you, Bristol!

'We were there to celebrate a friends birthday. I made a note of that on the open table reservation, and they had a birthday card and birthday confetti decorating the table when we got there. Then got a free dessert. I believe their carrot cake is the best on the planet!

We dined on the patio for my birthday and chose that route due to the enjoyable weather and the noise level inside, it was definitely very lively inside. Much to our surprise, they has a wonderful Happy Hour and we took full advantage of it. The martinis were fabulous and the appetizers were delicious. We can't wait to dine there again!

Good brunch buffet as usual, especially seafood items and cheeses grits! Creme brulee and chocolate mousse parfait in "sample" sizes allow for trying lots of yummy items. The black on black table scheme with low light was a little tough for older folks with us, plus noise level was hard for hearing all across our round table of 5. Still, we'll be back.

Food very good but extremely overpriced. I had jumbo crab cakes which were good, but for the price, I would have thought the crab pieces would have been much larger. Mashed potatoes nothing special. Husband’s flounder just ok. Grits were delicious, but the roasted carrots were mostly burned. Clam chowder delicious. Took home Creme brûlée with raspberries. Surprised there were only 3 raspberries - should have been more for the price and since it was featured in the name. Server was excellent, attentive without being in the way.

We go every year for our Anniversary. We aren’t big fish people, but it’s hard to pass on the seasonal halibut. The service is always wonderful, the food is always awesome, and they always make us feel special. It’s a splurge for us to go there, but it’s always so worth it!

I took my 82 yr old aunt to dinner. We ordered three course meals . They were all delicious. The only thing our delightful waitress steered us wrong on was my aunt's request for red wine. I believe she got a petite Syrah. I thought maybe my aunt just didn't like it. But I tasted it .... nasty. But other than that it was a very delicious meal and great service!

It was my Birthday so I took half day of vacation to spend with my wife. We had lunch at the Bristol. I had the special they had that day: 5 Oysters on the half shell and glass of champagne. It hit the spot and started my Birthday celebration. They topped that off with complimentary dessert. We chose the Key Lime pie. Excellent. It had regular pie crust instead of graham cracker crust which is the only way to enjoy it. Yummy.

The food was great as usual. The service left a bit to be desired. The waiter piled unneeded wine glasses on our table, numerous times. At one point, we had 5 wine glasses stored on our table. He did remove one to use it. Apparently, our table was considered a "storage area." This struck us as quite off-putting and not the kind of treatment we expect from a 5-star restaurant. The salad I ordered never arrived, until after dinner when I saw the inaccurate check and the waiter did provide a salad to take home and corrected the check. We enjoyed the live music but it was a bit too loud. It would be just as enjoyable with the volume lowered. So overall, we were a bit disappointed in the The Bristol tonight.
