Although they advertised a large number of beers, we discovered that most were bottled, not on draft. Food was average and service was spotty. Ok but just ok.

Greatest pub menu you will ever see from fish and chips to shepherds pie. Great beer on tap and even live Irish music on Sunday nights. In the summer months, there is outdoor seating where you can enjoy charming Bristol Harbor. In the winter months, the pub becomes cosy and warm

Comfy food...consistently yummy and a relaxed atmosphere. Large variety of food on the menu and my husband tells me they have a good beer selection (oh so important). Go early especially in the summer cuz it is one busy pub.

The food is in my words quite decent- nothing fancy, nothing extravagant and simple for the most part. It is no nonsense pub food that delivers to those late night hungry folks. The pricing is modest and nothing outrageous there. While the food is a good grade B, it is the service that really excels- the warmest and most courteous... More

Went to Aidan's to grab a bit and watch some of the March Madness and was able to watch both the hockey and basketball games upstairs. Great atmosphere, certainly busy, but enjoyed being able to eat, drink and watch the games all at once...Service was great despite the crowds.

An institution in Bristol near the harbor. Pub atmosphere with great ambiance and an interior filled with wood and brass. Aidan's serves seafood, Irish pub fare, burgers, and sandwiches. The food is always excellent. However, what I enjoy the most at Aiden's is the stuffies. Don't know what a stuffy, or stuffed quohog is? I suggest you find out because... More
