Our reservations were at 4pm. When we got to Bristol there was a sign on the door that said they were closed until 5. No alert or email notifying us of that.

Reservations did not happen. Power outage from transformer. Whole block without power. Did not receive call for restaurant cancellation. Arrive and told they were closed. We were in town one night before heading back to STL. We will stop back next time we are in town.

Great food, however, the power went out during our meal. Very upsetting to pay for a great meal and have our night so special go South🥲

This was our first trip and quick getaway we have had in a long time and Bristol Seafood & Steak did not disappoint. My wife had a pick 3 which included Lobster tails with asparagus and Yukon gold potatoes, salad, and dessert. I had the 14 oz. KC strip with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. Both our meals were cooked to perfection and tasted great. The service was also 5 Star. It was the first time in a long time I finished my entire meal.

We loved this restaurant! The food was amazing, and our server, Luke, was phenomenal. Highly recommend for any event! We went for my birthday and they even had a handwritten birthday card for me when we arrived for the reservation. Definitely give it a try if you’re in the area!

The food and service was great! The biscuits were great, and our steaks were cooked perfectly. The only issue I had was that we chose to sit on the patio and the table was almost impossible to eat on. When we would cut our steak it would move so much we’d have to hold our drinks. There weren’t other tables so we didn’t ask to move, but the rest of the patio patrons didn’t seem to have any issues.

The only negative thing was finding parking and with roads closed and construction it was not easy. Everything else was great. Our waiter was good and also friendly. The food was very good. For what we got I think the price was reasonable.

We love the selection of fresh seafoods, right here in downtown KC, MO.
We can ride the streetcar there, no hassles.
We've never been disappointed here!

Excellent meal. Best post-Covid service we have had so far anywhere. Swordfish special was perfectly prepared with excellent flavor and texture. Crab cakes were mostly crab with little filler--great!

This was a place I visit often, but no more. Our visit from the beginning was cursed. The server was confused and not very professional. I knew by the way he took our order that it was a crapshoot as to what we would get. Our appetizer took an hour and was barely warm. We never received our salad and soup. Our main course was mercifully correct. When the manager stopped I told him we were quite unhappy. He gave me a number of excuses, including “we are the only restaurant here open on Monday”, “there is a large volleyball tournament in town”, and the ever- popular “we are short staffed”. I explained that does not cut it. He did comp our meal, but it will be a long time before I return

Great food and great service. Our waiter was Ed and he was incredible. So kind, animated, and knowledgeable. He made our experience here even better. Our table all got the three course meal. The lobster bisque is PHENOMENAL. We all had the filet medium rare with scallops. It was cooked perfectly and the scallops were delicious. The Carrot Cake for dessert was so good! The cake portion was huge and I felt guilty for not being able to eat it all. I can’t wait to come back next time we are in KC!

This used to be the restaurant where we celebrated special occasions. Not anymore. From incorrect drink order ( what bartender doesn't know how to make a Tequila Sunrise?), to a filet that tasted like roast beef & cold asparagus were the straws that broke us. Plus parking sucks when valet not available.
