Used to be an icon if you were a local. Since changing owners it has changed quite a bit. Its new look is beautiful but the menu has changed too much. Used to be the best place for a burger or seafood. It was a local hangout and you knew everyone. Prices have gone up quite a bit. Just not... More

The setting along the water is beautiful to sit outside and have a beverage, The food is only adequate and quite disappointing. Go enjoy the outside deck though!

I ordered a pumpkin lobster ravioli with scallops and shrimp dish. It was delicious and the clam chowder was outstanding. I think the menu needs to be worked on a little. The meals do not come with bread or a salad. The menu doesn't list a side salad, so you'd have to buy a $10.99 salad which is considered a... More

With a name like "Agave" and being set on the Bristol waterfront, I was expecting to step into a swanky, modern Mexican restaurant. But to be honest, the building (inside & out) was old & tired, and unimpressive. Our party of 10 was sat at a nice rustic dining table by the fireplace which was cozy and comfortable. The margaritas... More

Ladies lunch on the water was wonderful! The location right on the water is perfect. It is right on the east bay bike path which makes it a must stop for cyclists to grab a bite and take on the view of the bay. Food is great and the service was spot on! Definitely hits all the marks for a... More

We went to agave yesterday for lunch after a long bike ride. This is our third visit and we thought we would try it once more. The setting is gorgeous. The wait staff are almost argumentative. Our umbrella blew away, and we asked to be seated somewhere else in the shade. We were told she would have to ask a... More

Great views, perfect margaritas, not crowded. Maybe food can be better but who cares with a great view and a great drink!

Good place for lunch or dinner with spectacular views over the water. Park and walk a mile or two along the bike path before heading back to the restaurant with a hearty appetite. Lots of umbrellas on the terrace to shade you from the sun. Good wine list and local beers. Good size portionso and friendly wait staff. Try the... More

My husband and I had lunch on the back patio with a nice view of the harbor. I had the chicken Caesar, my husband had the fried clam sandwich. He also tried the Agave sangria - twice! When in Bristol again we will go back for another pleasant lunch.

I've come hear three times since the restaurant changed it's theme and name. They try to portray themselves as a high end restaurant with interesting concoctions on there menu with exorbitant prices to match. Everything I've had so far, including a still partiality frozen fried chicken sandwich, has been hugely underwhelming. They just can't pull of the theme they try... More
