Decided to go with my wife for an evening meal. We had a great meal, the sangria was the best I have ever had. We also caught some entertainment while we were eating. It was a fun evening.

First time here, great atmosphere. Food was fresh and delicuous. Service was quick and friendly. We did visit on a weekday. The wine was o.k. This is a gem for sure! The location is great, we will definitely be back again and again!

I’ve been stopping here for lunch outside on the bistro tables. Love the grouper sandwich grilled in lemon butter and the sweet potato fries. Staff is always great.

Even though most restaurants have bars, they may have ample open chairs at the bar. However, most of them are taken on Friday and Saturday. My hubby and I always call for reservations, but sometimes we pop in at the Bistro on a Friday night...More
