Jamie and crew are amazing and the venue is beautiful. Thanks for a great afternoon as always!
We were on our first long weekend since covid.
Best view of the harbor
The food was absolutely terrible. We ordered the Portuguese little necks and stuffed quahogs and made the decision to go somewhere else for our entrees. Nice waterfront location but they need a new chef asap
The food and service are the best in Bristol
Food was great, and waitress was awesome. Looking forward to going back.
I have no complaints the food service and atmosphere was excellent. Always a great experience when dining there. Definitely would recommend Thames to family and friends . Will be returning soon.
We enjoyed our recent visit to Thames On the Waterfront. everything was fine and we will definitely return.
Excellent, I would highly recommend Thames Waterside Bar & Grill. Our entire party enjoyed our food drink and beer choices. Everyone was extra friendly. Views were amazing. It was one of the few times we have been out in over a year and it was awesome, thank you!!!
Nice location on the water. Outside deck is mostly enclosed right now but still had a water view and was comfortable. Service was good; food was good but not special except the pulled pork nachos were unusual and very good.
Great view, good view and a fun place
Lunch date in a new place. I had the lobster roll and a spicy margarita. I think the is may have been the best lobster roll EVER!! Service was amazing, there wasn’t very long between times when someone checked if we were ok or needed anything!!! Will definitely recommend Thames to my friends!!!!
The food was excellent the service was on and off there are no handicap parking spaces near the restaurant... overall it was very good we had a nice time it’s a great place to watch the sunset
The fish and chips were the largest we've ever had & they were delicious too.
Food was extremely hot when it came out and stayed hot for at least 25 minutes-very good--especially after a cold day.
Always great to visit. Thank you
Great food, drinks and staff. Beautiful location will definitely be back.
The location can't be beat. We've been dining at Thames Waterside for years and always enjoy the view, food, and service. Megan our waitress is top notch with service, recommendations, and sincere charm. It's always an enjoyable experience.
Our food was nice and hot. We had to wait a while for our coffee.
The staff, the view, the food are all fantastic! Can’t wait to get back there.
We recommend Thames to any one no matter there age. Great afternoon or evening getaway!!
Food was terrible. No flavor. Outdoor heating system was not working. Was not impressed with this experience.
Great band playing and dinner was delicious! We got calamari for an appetizer, the baked haddock and lobster mac and cheese. I can’t wait to dine again and try something else.
The bar tenders did not follow Covid protocols...had masks down around their chins the whole time behind the bar. Really disappointing and off putting. Will be a while before I go back, sadly.
I love going to this restaurant. The atmosphere is always pleasant and fun and the staff is excellent. The food is a great value as the portions are always plentiful and I always leave with a full and happy stomach.
Bathrooms were dirty, no soap in men’s room, service was poor, waited a long time for a bottle of wine, clam cakes were dry, stuffed quahogs were burnt. The atmosphere in the patio/tent area was loud. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless they made significant changes!
Good food, portions, view and service...our go to when visiting the area.
Friday night fun. Music by Colby James and Jay Pacheco, made the night a blast. Good drinks, good service, good food. We will be back!
Friendly, fun waiter, good menu and tasty food, awesome vibe and love music- all within covid protocols. Two thumbs up.
Great food and great service! We recommend this restaurant.
Valentines Day dinner, the atmosphere was great and the service was on point. The live music was very talented but the volume was way too loud, my wife and I were at a small table by ourselves with half the restaurant empty and I had to shout and lean across the table at some points to talk with her.
Had a great date night! Our server was attentive, the food and drinks came out in a timely manner. There was live music which was an added bonus that we were not expecting, definitely recommend!
The live entertainment and location were great. The food was sub par and the service okay at best.
Nice lunch spot. I appreciated having a lobster roll mid-winter with a water view! Great outside/covered patio seating for pandemic safety, but disappointed to see dead palms as ambiance. Either replace dead plants with live plants or remove completely.
Waiter was top-notch — friendly, knew entire drinks/food menus and offered suggestions w/enthusiasm. Checked-in with us at least a half-dozen times over the course of an hour evening dinner. He smiled, shared, just seemed to love his job!
great place for a casual dining with a fabulous view of the bay.
Love the food , view and staff! A great restaurant for enjoying food and atmosphere ! Been there many times and have never been disappointed! Can’t wait to go back again!!!👍
We went there for a casual dinner on New Year’s Eve and it was very good! The waitstaff is top notch and always on their game. Great place to stop in anytime!
Everything was delicious!
What a beautiful waterfront restaurant. We loved watching the sunset. The service and food was top-notch!
