    Table right at doors, very busy spot, good view. Waitress poor, had to ask for silverware, had to ask for bread basket given to nearby tables, waitress took order, never seen again. Food decent, fish special ok, crab cakes very good. After long wait, had to hunt mgr down for bill, then try to find someone to take cash payment. Would not go again.

    Food was good, service was amazing, but ambience was horrible. The bathrooms were dirty and had long lines due to them being used by the bar patrons from the lower level. The chair pads were stained and worn out and the place just had an overall tired feel. Small improvements would go a long way.

    Grouper and whole red snapper were the BEST we’ve ever had (and we are snowbirds). Our server, Cal, took very good care of us. A couple things marred the evening but did not spoil it. One member of our party does not eat seafood and ordered the chicken Marsala - it was horrible - taken off our bill (another table ordered this, as well, and returned it, too). Also, Open Table gave the option of seating on 2nd or 3rd floor. We chose 3rd but were seated on 2nd. Not a huge deal but worth mentioning. Otherwise, we love this place and make a point of sharing with visitors.

    We’ve eaten here a few times over the years. Was one of our favorites on the island. Used to be that every entree was excellent. This time the flavors & portion size of the food were not as good. Sadly, probably won’t be back again for dinner.

    We dine here whenever we are in the area. It’s has a comfortable atmosphere, excellent servers and the food is always delicious. We especially like the pecan crusted fresh catch which varies a little each day. They have a nice wine list which is typically priced for a nice restaurant. The key lime pie is wonderful! Always an enjoyable meal.

    We have eaten at the Bridge Street Bistro many times over the past 9 years. Our recent visit disappointed us. The menu has shrunk. The quality of the food has substantially diminished and the price is out of sight for the quality and presentation. Service remains outstanding and the sunset view is perfect.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first time at the Bridge Street Bistro. We were there to celebrate Valentine’s Day and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere and the food was first rate but the service was exceptional. Our server Stephanie could not have been more pleasant. She expertly guided us through the menu and gave us great advice. Somehow she knew when we needed her and when to leave us alone. Give Bridge Bridge Street Bistro a try and ask for Stephanie. You’ll be glad you did.

    My wife and I made an early (4:45) reservation for dinner at the Bridge Street Bistro on Valentine’s day while visiting Anna Maria Island. We are still avoiding indoor dining due to Covid, and when making the reservation asked for a table on the third-story deck facing the Gulf. We arrived about 20 minutes early, checked in at the hostess stand and asked for an outside table. The manager happened to be nearby and he told us that we’d be getting the best table on the deck. He was as good as his word. It was windy and had been chilly at street level, and we wondered if we had dressed warmly enough. But we were shown to a table on the deck in a sort of alcove, sheltered from two sides and with heaters under the eaves behind us. Between the heaters and the afternoon sun, we were very comfortable. Also, for the entire time we were there we were the only diners on the deck! Our waiter Anthony was terrific, had the answers to every question we asked about the various “catch of the day” entrees. When I commented that he certainly knew his fish he said that he had been a commercial fisherman for 20 years, starting when he was 13. We ordered drinks and when they arrived ordered our entrees, grouper “Oscar style” with crab and asparagus for my wife and whole snapper with risotto for me. While we waited for our entrees Anthony brought a basket of fresh rolls and some butter, also very good and just enough to start the meal without getting too filled up. When the entrees arrived we each ordered a glass of wine and it arrived very quickly. My wife loved her grouper; it was a large filet and she just managed to finish it. My snapper and accompanying risotto was excellent as well, the fish coated very lightly with corn meal and lightly fried just enough to cook the fish, which was done perfectly. We passed on dessert, too full. Great food and service, and the price was very reasonable, about $140 including the four drinks. Highly recommend you go when on AMI!

    My parents 64th wedding anniversary was on 2.12 - we live in Indiana, they winter down there. We made reservations for them through OpenTable and then called them directly for special requests. Hannah answered the phone, explained to her our special instructions (quieter corner so they could hear each other, that we wanted to pay for their bill with extra tip, and that it was their 64th anniversary.) When Mom and Dad got there everyone was very nice and wished them a Happy Anniversary, their server (Heather) was amazing. Mom and Dad said that she gave them the best service, the food was exceptional, and they had a great date night out! Thank you for your exceptional customer service all the way around! It's fun to help them celebrate their special day, they are still as cute as ever at 84 and 82 :) If you haven't been there, please check them out!

    Michelle was our server and did a good job—also was very kind. Only complaint was door to terrace kept opening and was letting in a cold draft. Asked personnel to close it so it wouldn’t open, but others kept going in and out that way and were not careful about closing the door.

    Bridge Street Bistro is one of the best restaurants in Bradenton Beach- - great food, location and service. My wife and I started with a bottle of wine and their smoked fish appetizer, which we really liked (came with veggies to dip as well as various crackers). For dinner we each had their fresh (not frozen!) Grouper, which you can get 5 or 6 different ways. I had the prep that came with a skewer of shrimp and was served with asparagus and spinach, along with a bed of creamy delicious risotto. My wife had the pecan crusted Grouper (fresh!) with a touch of maple; it came with green beans and she also had the risotto. It was not heavily crusted, so it was still a nice light dish. The location is fantastic - it is above the Island Times Bar/Cafe and we sat outside with a great view of the ocean and the sunset. Service was friendly and attentive - - a shout out to Heather who took care of us. A beautiful evening. You certainly can get a cheaper meal on Bradenton Beach but it is hard to match the overall quality of the food and experience offered by Bridge Street Bistro.

    Waitress must have been very new, as she could not answer questions about the preparation of several dishes. Additionally, my husband ordered the chicken parmesan, but when it arrived it had onions and red and green peppers in it. These are things he cannot eat and they were not posted on the menu for your typical chicken parmesan. Will not go back as there are too many restaurants with similar menus and prices that are much better quality.

    Good service, but the food was underwhelming. The carrots were mushy and lacking any flavor. The risotto was gummy and the Maryland crab cakes were sad. Only 4 smallish shrimp were included in the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail for $16.00.
