GREAT staff but waiter could have been a little more attentive in serving. But overall, IMO and the other 2 guests with me felt it's been overrated and actually deemed Bristol Seafood Grill to be better among others. The prices seemed higher in comparison to...More

This was my first time here and, while the atmosphere and service were wonderful, I found the food very pricey and not outstanding. I had the chicken, which was very good, but the asparagus side and Brussel sprout sides were very charred to be kind....More

Dinner disappointing. Even 18 oz. ribeye was cut thin. Brussel sprouts just okay but sautéed spinach very bitter. Nothing up to expectations given the high prices including service which felt hurried.

We love this place and have been going there since it opened. They are affiliated with Bristol so you will see some commonality in the two menus. Great happy hour food pricing. We enjoy their appetizers and love the sliders. Steaks are delish too.
