The food was excellent and enjoyed by the four members of our party. Our server was polite and knowledgable, kudos to him. It was appreciated that guests could have the Thanksgiving dinner or order from the menu. We will keep the Bristol in mind for future Thanksgiving meals.

Thanksgiving. I was to dine with my elderly relative but he fell ill and couldn’t join me. For that reason I sat at the bar by choice. The food was wonderful but the bartender seemed very uninterested in following up with me once my food had arrived.

The lobster risotto was one of the best things I've ever eaten. My wife loved the Thanksgiving dinner, particularly the squash soup and the pumpkin pie. We were lucky to get a sheltered corner booth, and our waitperson, Skyler, was fabulous! She was almost brand new also! A great experience all around.

We were celebrating our 36th anniversary, my husbands impending retirement and an early Thanksgiving. We were greeted and seated quickly and efficiently. our waiter and other staff kept our water filled and were available when needed without hovering. Biscuits were hot and yummy and cocktails were excellent. The Oysters Rockefeller, while very good were not "spectacular". I had those at a beach restaurant in Pensacola...they were to die for. There's were a little more salty- I think they had bacon crumbles and it seems like they were served warm/hot on a big round baking type pan. Of course, the location in Florida added to the overall experience and things just always taste better on vacation. I had the seafood combo and it was good. Cooked well. I felt like everything was slathered with a kind of cajun seasoning that overwhelmed a bit. Still excellent but a bit more subtlety might be even better. My husband is super picky about steaks and he deemed his filet outstanding. Tender and perfectly cooked. The veggies were also excellent. In fact, they were so good I'd recommend a vegan menu featuring them. The carrot cake was exquisite. Loved the coconut. Huge serving. We much appreciated the complimentary champagne cocktail. We have found dining out experiences have been fairly lackluster if not downright horrible since Covid. We usually eat on patios but just got our booster so felt a little safer. We are pleased to say that it doesn't appear your service or food value/taste have suffered in any way. We would definitely dine at the Bristol again and recommend it. My husband used to eat there all the time for business. He's not a big seafood fan so appreciates the other non seafood menu items. As we are retiring we are cutting back a bit. Smaller portion senior meals might be a good idea for the folks who like fine dining but are on a smaller budget...Don't like to waste food.

Great lunch, nice ambiance, outstanding service--the power lunches are just the correct amount of food to prevent a post-prandial nap and are a great jump start to the afternoon.

Vicki was an amazing server and the manager Vincent took great care of us for our anniversary. I'm allergic to shelfis and the server was very sure to make sure I was okay. Beautiful restaurant and delicious food/drinks.

Met some girlfriends for brunch.
Our waitress Courtney was great. Attentive and observant of when we needed things.
Apologized for delay in getting us the bill, but it wasn’t an issue for us.
Bristol is always a crowd favorite with my friends.

It was a nice touch that several people wished us a happy anniversary. And either a free champagne toast or dessert. Lovely. We always love coming here. I'm a huge fan of the scallops.

Food was excellent and service was excellent. The only thing that detracted was the lady seated at the table next us complaining loudly to staff that people weren't wearing enough masks. She was ranting to a server about people not taking the pandemic seriously and her behavior made our meal unpleasant. We simply wanted to enjoy a nice meal for our anniversary.

The eggs Benedict was badly overcooked, to the point of hard boiled, on my plate and my husband's plate. The couple at the table next to us were complaining about the same thing to their waiter and had it sent back. Not sure if just a new and inexperienced chef, but it seemed consistent that they were cooking it badly.

We are never disappointed when we dine at The Bristol Seafood Grill! The Bloody Mary's are excellent, the lobster bisque is on par with (or better than) east coast establishments and the seafood prepared perfectly. The service was exceptional!

Went there for a late lunch on Saturday. Our service was exceptional and the ambiance great. Oysters as a starter were on point. Our party also enjoyed the swordfish and crème brûlée. However, the root slaw was overdressed and soaked the entire plate and the carrots left much to be desired. Lobster rolls were good as well.

We go to Bristol all the time and it’s always pretty good but this time I had the Haddock it was flavorless the lobster risotto was mushy, runny and had little taste.
Asparagus was fine
Wine was good
VERY DISAPPOINTED

From the birthday greeting card to the warm chocolate lava cake (complimentary), we had an outstanding lunch at Bristol’s! My husband ordered the halibut special with gnocchi and I got the wood fired grilled mahi-mahi. My fish was amazing. The flavored was definitely enhanced by the grill. Also I liked the sides of green beans with toasted pecans nd the roasted potatoes. I tasted by husbands dish. The gnocchi were soft and flavorful. Halibut was very mild. I think the wood grilled fresh fish is the best preparation.
We were impressed by the service too. Our meal was ready in no time. And you must get the chocolate lava cake, even if it isn’t your birthday. It is amazing!!
Can’t wait until our next visit to Bristol’s.

Everything was nice except our waitress could of been a little more friendlier.
Ordered coffee to go with our dessert and when she brought the cup of coffee my companion apologized for not asking for decaf.
She was a little upset but did she ask when she took the order whether it was to be decaf or regular coffee- no she didn’t.
I always like to go to Bristol’s for special occasions for the food is excellent.
Thanks for asking how our evening went…

Ordered seafood Grill and guest grouper. Both were underwhelming and the salmon very small and overdone. Scallops were so small and dry they probably shouldn’t even be offered on the menu. Will be satisfying my seafood appetite somewhere else next time. Lots of options for the money spent.

What a great experience. Greeted warmly as we entered, seated immediately and our server Chris, was prompt to say hello. The fresh oysters were superb, crab cakes on point and the wine was free flowing. We both had scallop entries for dinner and they both were divine. Glad we found this spot. Will be back again.
