Great experience both in restaurant, as well as catered in. Everything I had was delicious. Special shout-outs to the Green Chili Wontons, the Bourbon Shrimp and Grits, and the Bourbon Chop.

Our Road Scholars group had our final dinner here. The service was fast and efficient. The three entrees all seemed to be well received. I particularly liked my pork in dijon sauce and my wife enjoyed her portobello mushroom.

We went to brunch at Bristol before seeing a show. They took reservations which is great for timing. The menu is a buffet with everything you could want, including a dessert table. Service was excellent and food was better. We will be back!

Great place to go before the theater across the street. However, portions are way too large and because you are going to theater, you cannot take leftovers home. At the end of our meal, our waitress informed us that 1/2 portions were available. Wine list...More
