South Street spot serving up burgers and cocktails. – In Short
This independent bar and grill endures amid encroaching chain imitators. Dark wood and dim lighting create an ever-present evening effect. A long strip of outdoor tables includes diners in the sidewalk scene. While the menu does offer eclectic options, it is heavy on '80s barroom standbys. The best entree may be the 12-ounce burger with its juice melting into a chewy Italian bun.
average – if only it lived up to the hype avoid the owers. they will be either your best friend or well you know. dawn is a great bartender. btw the quizzo is awful.
Absolutely the BEST BAR on South Street! – I absolutely love Bridget's.....The bartenders (namely Nick and Carmel) are awesome!! My girlfriends and I go there all the time. The drinks are perfect, the service is superb and I love the menu. The cheesesteak is the best I've ever had. Lots of space upstairs for dinner parties. Don't be surprised to see the owner walk through and greet the guests. His daughter (Bridget) works there too (use to) and she's really nice as well. I spent New Years there and it was the best New Years I've had in a while! Bridget Foy's is by far my favorite bar!!!!!
Surprisingly romantic and enjoyable – It's strange to have such a fabulous experience at a restaurant in South Street. Not that I hadn't heard great things about Bridget Foy's South Street Grill beforehand (many people have talked about its new renovations and excellent, contemporary American fare), it was just that i wasn't expected to enjoy it quite as much as i did.
I began with classic chicken quesadillas with a spicy, chunky salsa that added punch to the appetizer. Next, classic hamburger that satisfies. Cooked medium-well with precisely the right amount of flavor. Dessert consisted of a creme brulee and cocktail. The cocktails (Ranging from classic martinis to originals like the bridgetini) highlight the dishes.
Attentive service and friendly owners, the restaurant's ambience also adds to the experience. New renovations have given the place a new edge. Whimsical light fixtures along with some hip chairs make dining seem lighthearted yet with a dash of romance.
Great neighborhood spot – I had brunch last Sunday at Bridget Foy's, and was pleased by both the service and the food. It was nice to be out on the deck enjoying the great weather! Our server was friendly and helpful and recommended some good dishes for us to try. Plus, I really enjoyed the Make-your-own Bloody Mary's. I will definitely make this friendly neighborhood cafe my new summer hang-out!
not recommended – I was disappointed that my french toast was made without egg, and the fruit on the side was old and semi-spoiled, but otherwise the food was ok. others in my group were not very impressed. this semi-decent meal, however, was ruined by the service. I don't know if it was because we were the only group on the second floor, but the service was poor. it was slow, the coffee and waters were not refilled at all, the bread was requested twice before the meal but wasn't brought out til the meal was half over, and no apology was given for two mistakes made on the part of the server, nor for her callous attitude. I was not at all impressed with this restaurant and I won't go back there. (to their credit, the manager was really nice and they didn't make us pay for the botched meal.)
Worst service ever – The food was okay, but not fresh and a bit bland. The service was the worst I've ever experienced in any restaurant. Water was never refilled, bread was never given until we were nearly done with the meal, and orders were confused. Our waitress worked at a snail's pace. An okay place to eat if you have a lot of time to kill and have enough patience for awful service.
cool place – The food was good and the service nice. I went for my b-day and they sang happy b-day and gave me free dessert.
Great American Bistro! – I live in the area and always enjoy Bridget Foy's. Had the chimichanga for lunch the other day it was awsome. Service was on point with a friendly touch. Very reasonably priced.
Rating – We have been regulars for several years. The food is uneven - sometimes outstanding, sometimes disappointing. But for outdoor dining, there is no better seat in the city, except maybe Katmandu and Rock Lobster. But when Bridget Foy's food is good, it is way beyond what the river places have to offer. Nice relaxed, casual environment, interesting art, interesting bar.
