Stopped in for Happy Hour on a Friday about 5pm. Bartender (Kitt) very friendly. They had just opened for service, so only a few other folks sitting at bar. Ended up having the beet salad and a shrimp appetizer - both were delish. BF had the chowder and the oysters bienville, which he really enjoyed. Fantastic view across Gulf Dr... More

Had high expectations for this our first time at this restaurant. We ordered from 3 course meal menu and was informed after we placed our order that the desert was NOT available. The spinach salad was missing something. The entree took a long time nearly 45 minutes and there were only 10 customers in the restaurant. Took another 20 minutes... More

We went to the Bridge Street Bistro for dinner on a wet Monday evening, when many of the restaurants we had selected turned out to be closed. The place was buzzing, with practically all tables as well as bar stools already taken. In addition, there was live music so that the noise level was way above what we prefer. The... More

I ordered the scallops and they were very tasty but the hollandaise sauce with crab was a thick, gummy mess and I know it is because my food sat under a heat lamp for too long. The server had to deliver my plate with a towel it was so hot!! The lobster bisque starter was delicious. When you are slow... More

We had a late lunch here recently and had a nice time. Good drinks and very nice waiter. It was very hot and we sat outside and our waiter adjusted the umbrella so the sun wasn't beating down on us. Much appreciated!

We had dinner there. The first impression was good, the waiter was attentive and friendly. I ordered an onion soup, which had a nice presentation, but what a pity... it was too salty… Otherwise, everything else was fine. The desserts were great: they served 3 miniature cream brûlée in cups with different tastes.

Order the honey curry shrimp dish for a divine combination of grilled asparagus, more shrimp than you can eat and a crispy lobster wakame fritter. We took our meal to go, so I can't review the service. We've visited Anna Maria Island for a summer family vacation for 3 years and just discovering this restaurant is a sure stop on... More

My husband and I were celebrating my birthday. We went to the Bridge Street Bistro and it was an excellent choice for dinner. It is small, on the third level, next to the BridgeWalk, where we stayed. The atmosphere was romantic. Our server was Michael and he was excellent. We had fresh, grilled Mahi-Mahi with a fruit salsa and it... More
