We are open Tuesday-Sunday. Join us Saturday & Sunday mornings from 10am-3pm for our famous Southern Brunch! Menus can be found at our website.
We had the Try it All Y'all and the BBQ Cobb salad with brisket. Wow, the hot links are so flavorful, brisket was great and the pimento cheese spread and cornbread were unlike any other in a good way! I heard the ribs and wings were good but they were gone so fast I didn't get to try them! We have been hesitant to eat out but felt that Bristol Republic followed all of the covid rules to keep us safe and put us at ease. We had excellent service, Amanda was very knowledgeable and patient while we figured out the beers on tap, a good list! I tried an Orange Blossom drink, WOW, it will knock your socks off, good and strong while maintaining the Makers Mark flavor. Sophie was a delight, we felt especially well cared for and can't wait to return.
The food was lukewarm everything was fine
Great food & excellent service.
I love Bristol! My favorite place to get brunch for sure.
The Cowboy Benedict was delicious although I think they forgot to put Hollandaise sauce, we asked for a side of it. The waitress was so nice and accommodating and the prices are great
Really great service and the food was really good. One of the best brunches that I’ve been to.
We really enjoyed the food. The staff was friendly and attentive.
Had the food been hot it would have been 5⭐️
Awesome happy hour specials!!!! We loved the wings, 18 hour brisket sandwich an our server Amanda was awesome.
Loved the food, the nachos were AMAZING and so were the waffle fries. Service was awesome, the waitress was super cool.
First time visitor to Bristol Republic. Loved the place!
Food was very delicious, server was not very friendly
Good food, great service. Parking is a b**ch but would visit again.
Great restaurant and even better food, was super impressed and will be back again !
We made a reservation for restaurant week. We were sat fairly quickly. Our beers took the longest to get to us but the food came at much quicker than anticipated. The food is delicious and I like the atmosphere. Definitely recommend!
The Nashville hot chicken was so salty, poofs of dry rub came off in my mouth as I took a bite. Nachos were ok. Service suffered bc they seemed understaffed
Outstanding service, top notch food. Loved everything about this place this time and every time!
Don’t forget to offer napkins and stop by more. Overall a good experience but they needed more people.
Great food and ambiance. Seemed to turn the music louder every hour.
The barbecue is amazing. The food was really good.
Nice outdoor patio option:)))) food was really good but unfortunately they were out of their speciality chicken Mac and cheese
Everything was delicious and tasty. I was quickly reminded that 1/4 pound of brisket isn't that much and I should have gotten a sandwich instead to get a little more value. The Alabama chicken was massive with 2 chicken breasts fried and amazing looking.
Definitely had a wonderful time at Bristol. Everybody there was kind, attentive, and made our experience great. Also, everybody was wearing a mask, temp was taken at the door, and I felt safe and clean the whole time.
We finally tried brunch! Unfortunately they are on a limited menu right now due to Covid, but it was still amazing! Always happy to come here.
Made reservations and called the restaurant prior to ensure they were in fact open. I talked to a worker who stated they were open and “see us soon”. Once we got there the doors were locked and no service. They either need to take off their reservation availability or not lie to their customers.
First visit was great, food was delicious and came out fast, bottomless mimosa deal was great, the service was a little slow and server didn't clear our plates.
We have always loved the food here and our server was really nice and checked on us. Really reminds us of Nashville. Always hard to decide what to eat. Drinks are fun.
Had a fun time for brunch! Great value for food and we loved our server!
Was able to sit at a table at the bar, good food, good service!! Date was 6/21 thanks!!
Thank you for dining with us! We hope to see you again soon
The brisket was moist and flavorful. The bottomless mimosa was awesome as well. The service was superb.
Food selection is somewhat unique for this area which makes it a place to go! They also have a great selection of bourbons to choose from. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing food, good atmosphere, would highly recommend
Decided to come back here after going for the first time a couple weeks prior. We brought my parents this time because we enjoyed the food so much. This time was slightly less impressive. The food was still goo, but we ordered the same things we did last time and stuff was missing. We were also missing other items from our order and had to have our server go grab the missing items. We were never asked what kid of sauces we wanted and were never asked if we wanted any other drinks or refills. While this doesn’t make me not want to come back it was just a disappointing experience.

Service was great under difficult circumstances. Band was outstanding.
This was my first time at Bristol Republic. The staff was awesome! They had COVID measures in place. The food and atmosphere was fantastic. I will go back for sure and can't wait for when it can be without COVID protocols!!
First visit, loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing. Had the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich. Absolutely delicious!
Kenny is the best
Although the food wasn't hot, we still had a good time.
We had a great time at Bristol Republic! The service was amazing and food was delicious! We went for brunch and ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the brisket and eggs. Both were so tasty! Great portions for price. Loved the vibes and tasty offerings. Will be back!
Came here for my bachelorette weekend brunch. Everything was amazing!
