The staff went above and beyond and provided us better seating during our meal for Mother’s day to make it special for us. I would recommend this place. Family friendly!

Thames Waterside Bar and Grill was the perfect spot for a Mother’s Day lunch. The food was very tasty, the cocktails excellent, ambiance beautiful overlooking the harbor but the crowning feature was our wonderful server Meghan, who made our day👏👏👏 We will surely return in the future, since Bristol is a classic and the Thames a relaxing and lovely venue to dine and relax.

Apps were good and dinner was below average. Drink was good but had to leave quickly because we were unable to talk or hear. The young man playing was good but not for dinner and the volume was way to loud. Maybe a set up in the bar would have been better. Had an out of town guest and very disappointed, we had to move onto another place.

Main courses were specials haddock franchise rice asparagus good seafood casserole very good and lobster roll just ok shredded not chunked and not on a new England hot dog roll. Dessert we had cheesecake just ok not the best average and 3 double espresso s very good. Two Expresso martinis bloody Mary gin tonic and a beer bill came to over 400 $$$ good but not excellent for that money I would go back for apps chowder and clam cakes for sure. Drinks super expensive.

The actual meal selection is a quarter of what’s listed here. Portion size was decent but had some heavy handed seasoning. My entire Ribeye meal came out totally over season and a tad bit over cooked. They did comp the meal which we appreciate. Burger & wings were a good pick. Staff was friendly and attentive but could step it up a notch from the standard disheveled look. If it’s a night when there’s entertainment you may want to dine inside as you’ll have to shout at each other.

I had to ask if there were any specials. There were. Food was very good. Asked for a drink and was told she was very busy 🤷‍♀️ and they were out of glasses. That would have been ok if our dinner bill for 4 adults was not over $400.00. SERIOUSLY. service and atmosphere was not worth a $100.00 per person. Sorry. Disappointed.

Your wait staff went above and beyond to take care of us and we’re extremely helpful getting us great seating for the show. And the entertainment was so good and so much fun. I loved it… I will definitely return again to see them. And last but certainly not least.. I had the fish and chips and they were delicious! Definitely recommend them since a good fish and chips are hard to find. Thank you!

I would recommend highly and we will definitely be back! Mom had the cowboy burger, dad had brunch burger, I had Caprese sandwich and partner had baked fish with rice and veg. Sweet potato fries and onion rings were delicious. Can’t wait to go back

Freezing in closed in area, which was the only option for seating. Won’t be back during cold weather months. Maybe try again in the summer.

I changed my reservation from 4 to 5 people, I have no idea if this was the cause of not having a table for us or not. There was a party of 7 ahead of us that sat down and were anticipating the live music. I told the host that we had reservations. We waited another few minutes, a woman comes over and they start whispering to each other. We are now told by the woman that we can be seated in the patio and that was all they had available. I leaned over and saw the table for 4. I asked why didn't my request to up the party size bounce back to unavailable? She replied--but we have tables. My husband went over to the patio and it was at least 10 degrees colder or more. I then went over and came back and said--oh they don't have the heaters on (I saw a couple of torches). The woman responded--yes we do, they are up above in the rafters. I replied--it is freezing out there and the wind is blowing 30 mph off the water. We left and went next door to eat. I have booked through Open Table places that have outdoor seating; hightops; and regular seating - usually I am prompted that there is only outdoor available, etc.

Angelica is an excellent waitress and we are planning to come back again. The food was excellent and the wine had a smooth taste to it. I think we will try the outside dining which it is facing the water in the Spring or Summer.
