This was our second time to the Bristol Oyster Bar. The raw bar, featuring locally sourced oysters, is fabulous. Our entrees were imaginative, fresh, and delicious. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, too. We can't wait to go back!
It’s always a good service there The food is spectacular.
Outstanding as it is each time we dine here. The menu is interesting, has variety, many delicious choices and gluten free items that I can enjoy. It is a place we bring friends.
Narragansett Bay oysters taste best! And, having had an office across the street from the legendary Oyster Bar at Grand Central Terminal in NYC, I've tasted them from all over the continent.
The three varieties of oysters available here tonight were from beds that one can walk to from the restaurant. It's great being a locavore!
Oh, and the calamari (BTW, R.I.'s official state appetizer), also local, were perfectly prepared and fresh, unlike the rubbery kind that's imported from who-knows-where.
The food and the service was outstanding. I can't wait to go back!
We've been coming here since it first opened featuring the best and freshest oysters on the east coast! We didn't know what to expect when it recently changed hands, but we couldn't be more pleased. The service here is excellent and the food has been elevated to a whole new level! Same great oyster selection...Bristol's Food Scene just got a whole lot Better!
Great service, great food - the chef accommodated my vegetarian with a delicious meal. We couldn’t have been happier.
Delicious food & fantastic service!
Always a great experience food is exceptional for your average price
Customer service excellent
Raw oysters awesome
Best oysters in New England!
So glad they have reopened.
Amazing food, service and spot! Katie our server was great
This is THE BEST place for raw oysters!
Other menu items were delicious too.
Service was great! Chairs are a little uncomfortable but I sort of got used to them.
New menu. We went there for the crab cakes and fried oysters which are no longer on the menu. My wife did not like the new menu and the waitress did not care. Any good waitress would have asked the chef if he could accomodate. She clearly did not care. We usually spent around $125 for dinner. We got up and left and ate at another resturant.
I love this place. The food is delicious here, but they took filet mignon off the menu, so my husband was disappointed. You always get the freshest ingredients. The servers are so friendly and efficient. The metal chairs with the side bars are a bit uncomfy.
Great food and service! First time there so we thought the inside would be a little more upscale but was actually very casual. Next time we will eat outside as that’s where most people were. We will be back!!
The food was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go again. I do think they could of used another server at the tables. The bartender was to busy to serve tables too. She was great with us but a table left and the table beside us had food and no utensils.
We love Bristol Oyster Bar. Oysters are fresh and delicious! We love to sit at the bar. Great service , ambience, experience!
Comfortable. Personable and attentive staff. Food was very good.
The food was excellent. The oyster and calamari were perfectly fried and the bahn mi sandwich was exceptional. The drinks were well made and the service was very good.
Service, food and cocktails were excellent. They are handling covid restrictions perfectly. Highly recommended the restaurant and we are looking forward to outdoor dining there soon.
A great restaurant which includes a terrific raw bar!
Definitely recommend the Crab Cakes, Oysters (Raw or Fried), Winter Harvest Salad and the Lobster Carbonara! Drinks were great, everything was so fresh and the service was top notch!
Enjoyed the raw bar selection though had to ask for more cocktail sauce etc.
The food was delicious...every dish was so flavorful!!! This place was well worth the drive for our date night!
Excellent service, love the Oyster Bar!
Terrific oyster bar! Weds./Thurs buck a shuck is unbeatable and includes ALL oysters in stock so you get get exactly what you like.
This is one of the best oyster bars in Rhode Island. The owner is so passionate about oyster and he even has his own oyster farm.
One of my favorite places to eat. The food is always good. The menu is a little limited. The oysters are always fresh. A little pricy, but they have a buck a shuck several times weekly. The staff are great, always very friendly and attentive. Looking forward to sitting outside when it gets a little warmer. Very Covid 19 friendly.
My wife and I went here Saturday for her birthday dinner. Our server, (Katie) was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the wines, and the entire menu. The oysters were so good ! We had the salmon and the Fluke for entrees , and both were the absolute best fish dishes we have ever had. Atmosphere is quaint and mostly quiet, with plenty of room between tables and the bar. My only complaint is that the chairs were a little uncomfortable, but that wont keep us from coming back again and again. This is definitely our new favorite ! A big THANK YOU to Katie for making my wife`s birthday dinner a memorable one.
Amazing service! So friendly and attentive!!! We shuckin loved it
Loved it! Great oyster! Good sword fish!
Never disappoints. Service and food outstanding
I love this place. Food and servers are excellent. Their furniture is uncomfortable.
After a year of anticipation, we felt safe enough to go out to our first meal. We chose a old favorite Bristol Oyster, to sit and enjoy some delicious Rhode island oysters. Our seating was comfortable, tables were spaced with clear partitions and the oyster selection had six choices. Our server recommended a delicious dry white wine which was a great match.
Overall it was a great experience. We will be back.
Fresh and delicious! We went Wednesday and Thursday for $1 oysters 4-6pm. The mussels were also divine! Would highly recommend.
Great place awesome staff, amazing chefs and Jake can shuck for me anytime,
Absolutely the place to go for a raw bar. Service and food can’t be beat!
Wonderful oyster bar! Great local spot for drinks and a meal.
Excellent Oysters, Great Waitress
