The fish we had at this place was very recommendable. Fresh, well prepared, and very tasty. The service was friendly and in a good mood, so eating there was a nice experience. We were rather underwhelmed by the wine list, however. Pricing is slightly high, but on par with what other, comparable restaurants charge. We would eat there again.

This restaurant sits on the third floor above a very busy bar. The kitchen on the second floor services both the bar and restaurant.
We waited nearly an hour for our entrees with apologies from the waiter. Still too long. Nice surroundings overlooking the beach. Would not rush back. Ate a seafood pasta and a chicken piccata. Okay food.

Hello Peter, I'm terribly sorry that your experience was less than exceptional. That was definitely too long of a wait for food. If you would give us the opportunity to fix this, we would be glad to turn your thoughts on us around. 9417821122

This restaurant offers a beautiful view of the Gulf and really nice decor inside. Our waiter was wonderful. All of our food was mediocre. My fish was over cooked, the kids’ pasta was undercooked, the lobster was chewy and tough. Definitely not worth the price we paid, which is a shame given the great ambience and wait staff.

My husband and I have enjoyed Bridge Street Bistro for several years and have always had good experiences in the past. We were looking forward to our visit this past week. When we asked for a table on the outside deck, we were seated there and anticipated a lovely meal. Instead, we had one of the worst service experiences we've ever had at a restaurant. Our server complained about how she was feeling, didn't bring bread until we asked for it, didn't refill our water glasses, never checked on things after our entrees were served, and only brought our bill when we asked another server to tell her we'd like it. On top of that, I ordered a scallop dinner for $26, and the scallops were so over-cooked that they were tough. My husband's grouper was fine. I can't stand making a scene by sending food back to the kitchen, so I ate my ruined scallops and vowed not to return to Beach Bistro. The only treat was my cocktail, something that always evokes great memories.
