Celebrating a cantankerous, eighty year olds birthday. Our server, Andrew, did his best within the managements guidelines. Management, on the other hand, had a lot to be desired. We made reservations for a party of 12, for a 6:30p seating this morning. "No problem ",...More

Very nice decor. Attentive, but not intrusive service. Excellent steaks and reasonably priced for downtown location.

We enjoyed a good lunch. The best part of the meal was some excellent skillet fries. The club sandwich was average, the barbeque sandwich was tasty but the meat portion was small. The wait staff was less than attentive.

My lunch at Bristol was amazing. It was a perfect day to sit out on the patio and enjoy the day. I had the steeplechase salad and it was delicious.

We stopped here to eat based on reviews seen here. It was downtown in a very nice part of town and offered some local fares. We ordered hot browns and bourbon drinks-mint julep and old fashioned. The food and drinks were good.
