Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Thanksgiving with a view. offering a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings in addition to a limited selection from our regular menu
Beautiful views. 4/5 entrees were luke warm even after we commented on the barely warm appetizer earlier in the night. We still ate it because we were hungry and waited ~30 minutes for the entrees even though the restaurant wasn’t busy. But the food was cooked well and could have been delicious if it was hot.
I mumbled Calamari, but the waiter heard Cauliflower, so we got a new dish that I think was a sautéed broccoli/cauliflower mix. No charge for the mixup and they rushed out the calamari, and both these dishes were delicious.
Decent food- wouldn’t recommend to a friend or family member though. Very slow service. Waitress was friendly, not very attentive though. Very “meh” experience. Wouldn’t be excited to go back.
Went here tonight and sad to say I was less than impressed. We asked to be seated outside and feel like we were put in the corner that is forgotten about. The service was very slow and our waitress was kind of all over the place.
I had the toasted colada and it was very good, I really enjoyed the toasted coconut around the rim. For our appetizer we had the lobster dogs - very tasty with two different dipping sauces. I also ordered the special soup of the day which was described as a steak and shrimp soup that was similar to a gumbo with a bit of a kick. The soup presentation was very sloppy (as shown in the photo), but on top of that, it tasted straight out of a can. There was no personality to this dish at all, and not one piece of shrimp to be found. I am seriously convinced it was heated from a can of Progresso, which is highly disappointing. Nothing tasted fresh. My boyfriend had ordered the seafood chowder, however we never received it.
For my entree I ordered the grouper "Oscar style". It was good, but the fish seemed slightly over cooked. I wasn't very interested in finishing my meal. Our waitress was kind enough to offer free dessert due to the soup that was never served, which was very sweet, however we just wanted to get out of there by the time we were done. I feel that this place is lacking in the service and quality of their food. Wouldn't recommend, especially if you are traveling out of state and want a really nice dinner.
This is our favorite place in the popular Bradenton Beach area. We missed it while we were in the north, but they've finished some remodeling and it looks great. Food always delicious.
great sunset. great weather. perfect night. huge salads!!
Excellent service! We had a table near the window so had great views of the beach and sunset. There were 4 guests and we all had different entrees and we were all very pleased. We will definitely go back to the Bistro. Be sure to make a reservation as the island is busy. Our waiter was the best!!
Food and service was great!!! Best meal on the island!
Dinner was excellent. Prices were good and food was excellent. I felt safe. The restaurant was clean and staff wore their masks properly.
Food, service and atmosphere were perfect. We enjoyed the steak and lobster Mac and cheese.
The view was perfect at sunset. My wife and I went for our 25th wedding anniversary and the view set the mood the food was great! Started with salads and we had surf and turf and scallops oscar.
The waitress was also the bartender and she was super helpful with wine selections and food choices.
The music from below was nice background ambiance and not overly loud. It was a great experience overall.
We enjoyed our meal however they need to hire more waiters to help out.
Great experience and the view at sunset is amazing.
The steak was awful. Service was great and the setting. Food was really bad. It was great 6 months ago. something happened
We dined outside and viewed a beautiful sunset. Our server was attentive and congenial. The food was excellent. My wife raved about the lobster bisque and shrimp tacos. I thoroughly enjoyed mahi with Asian glaze, accompanied by herb risotto and steamed veggies. The meal was an excellent value in a relaxing environment with nice view of the gulf.
Very friendly, quick, and attentive service with excellent food. Great date night
The food was excellent but the service wasn’t great. The waiter was very nice but unorganized . He seemed to be the only server.
My husband and I went to dinner for our anniversary. The ambiance was wonderful, the view was beautiful and the experience was great. We both enjoyed our food and the staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend the Bridge Street Bistro and we will definitely be returning.
Anniversary celebration! Thanks for the complimentary dessert!
Nice atmosphere, great view, but service was not good. Waited over an hour before we got our food.
Had my dinner after my wedding there in May was amazing... Went back again a few months later and was amazed. Fabulous food and service. I highly recommend this place.
The location is amazing. If the weather is nice, definitely sit out side. It’s a perfect view of the gulf and sunset. Food was outstanding. Cocktails weren’t out of this world, but weren’t bad either. Everyone was very friendly. Only issue was delay of service. Our apps came out quick, but main dishes and desert took a long time. The waiter didn’t come to the table often and when he did he was apologizing that the kitchen was backed up. Understandable and not his fault, but the two times he apologized, he didn’t do anything about our empty cocktails or water glasses. I eventually had to stop him to get new drinks. No compensation for those delays and also no mention from anyone about the birthday I notated on the reservation.
Server was very helpful and knowledgeable. She worked the entire dining room, including the bar, by herself. Very friendly, and never seemed flustered. Gave amazing service. The food was stellar! Had the lobster dogs, filet mignon, and blackened mahi. Was extremely impressed by the food and service. Will go back every time when visiting AMI.
Excellently prepared food and service was just as good.
We enjoyed our meal at Back Street Bistro. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. He was knowledgeable with his recommendations. Besutiful view of the gulf at sunset. It was a little confusing getting up to the third floor where the restaurant was ( you have to take an elevator which is located outside). I do recommend this testaurant.
Had the fish it was very dry also had a glass of blend wine witch I love absolutely terrible
One of our favorite places to eat out. Always excellent in every way.
Had a reservation for a special occasion. No table was available at our reservation time. Many open/dirty tables were on the floor.
But the did accommodate us within 15 minutes.
Lobster and old fashioned were great. We had 3 apps- all subpar. Mahi was way overcookex
This was my first time eating here and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service was. Our waiter offered suggestions and we had a great view of the ocean. I will definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant.
We sat on the balcony. The view is beautiful, the food was delicious, and we could hear music from the bar below. Great spot to unwind and enjoy the view and a meal.
I now have a favorite restaurant! EVERYTHING was awesome, including the Sunset. Our server Shari made everything perfect.
Service was amazing as well as the view!
Absolutely divine ! Presentation was incredible. The flavors were mouthwatering.
Great food. Super waitress. Social distancing being observed. Idiots that decided to walk around after eating without the mask on can’t be blamed on the restaurant. Beautiful view of the gulf at sunset.
Wanted to try it because my niece is having her wedding reception here and she wanted us to check it out. Good choice
Great restaurant located across from the beach with a great view of the beach! We had reservations for 6 pm and we were seated immediately. All practiced social distancing and we had a super waitress who was very attentive - her suggestions on what to order were spot on! Scallops were delicious and my boyfriend's steak was just as good.
Would definitely recommend going there and take a stroll on the beach after dinner!
We were there on a Tuesday for a sunset when it was quiet. Staff were very friendly and engaging and let us move outside on the patio to another table once it cooled down outside. My scallops were cooked to perfection and I loved the risotto. My wife ranked her filet as one of the best steaks she's ever had.
The hallway and stairs leading to the restaurant is dark and dingy.It give a bad appearance as you approach an otherwise decent restaurant ambience .Also the bathroom were dirty which is never a good sign for a restaurant.The food was good not great and the price fair.Not sure I would go back again because the kitchen might be as dirty as hallways and bathroom.
