Good drinks and our food was delicious and the whole feel of the place was very pleasant and relaxing. Also, the check doesn't break your bank so that's good.

I've been here several times on trips to KC and have yet to be disappointed. The seafood is fresh and prepared beautifully. The dining room is beautifully appointed and the wait staff is among the best in KC. Even though it's in steak and barbecue country, don't miss this one.

On a busy first a Friday outing a late night dinner at the Bristol was a pleasant respite from the crowds in the Crossroads and Power and Light district. Our group of seven had a reservation for one of the private rooms but it is never guaranteed that the previous party will give up their room. We were seated in... More

They do what they set out to do... provide the freshest seafood, prepared perfectly... good value too. They may be a chain in the Houlihan's family, but Bristol's is several steps above. They order fish from known fishermen and fly in daily, each fish is coded to know where it came from. The quality control sets Bristol's apart. Great value... More

I had the crab cakes and lobster mac and cheese. Probably the best crab cakes I have ever had! Wife had a rib eye steak. It was done correctly medium but a little tough.

For seafood in steak and BBQ country you can't get any better than the Bristol. I had Lemongrass Shrimp Tacos as an appetizer and added a side and wine it was just the right amount for early dinner on a Saturday evening. Outdoor seating is available and is also worth it weather permitting. Great place!

My wife and I ate an early dinner (5:30pm) here one Friday night in late September 2016. We shared a carafe of Riesling and my wife ordered the 9oz filet mignon and I ordered the Mixed Seafood Grill. For sides, we both had grilled asparagus and then shared their grilled green beans and Yukon mashed potatoes. Before dinner they brought... More

I ate here one night near the end of a business trip. First, they served fresh hot biscuits with honey butter. The menu was really good and there was a nice wine list. I had the New England clam chowder, which was really good. Then I tried their seafood platter, which had shrimp, scallops, crab cake, and salmon. All of... More
