This restaurant is placed on the Ocean Marina and so is a lovely place to sit and view the Marina and the Ocean. The food is hit and miss but never terrible!. I think they should change the menu more too.

Met a group for lunch in August at Bridgeman's, the food was fabulos, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The view....outstanding. I think most people would be able to find something on the menu that they would be happy to have as a meal.
