Ate there with my wife a half dozen times. Inexpensive medeocre food in a restaurant populated by locals far off the center of town where the concentration of restaurants is to be found. Bristol is a walkers paradise and a nice walk will bring you to many interesting restaurants. This restaurant one has to drive to and is perfect for... More

We have another place in town that is very expensive compared to Kim Shing. The food is just as good if not better. The restaurant itself isn't a great sit down place (aged, wobbly tables) but the food is great! The service is top notch too! They never screw your orders up like other places do.

The Wave has been a lunch place for me for years. It's cozy and friendly and the food is consistantly good. I have some specific dietary restrictions and the staff has always bent over backwards to accomodate my sensitivities. They remember me, and the waitress's always greet me with a smile.

Visited on Sunday afternoon, no problem getting seated. Waitress very pleasant. Ordered pizza & grinder-yummy. House wine is reasonable by the glass. Always a good choice for a meal. Casual.

We are frequent customers at the Wave. It's a fun spot that our kids seem to be begging to revisit weekly. The new menu of the former "pizza wave" is much more than just pizza. Our kids love the kids options while my husband and I never have a problem selecting a healthy and always delicious entree. The wave in... More

Now called "The Wave". Once a favorite of many locals and travelers. Now under new ownership it has changed drastically for the worse!! Visited with friends as a "thank you" dinner. After one person in our party took the first bit into a clam cake and was surprised with a sharp piece of plastic. When the server was told, she... More

Placed food order on a Wednesday night and was told the wait was 20 minutes for pickup. Arrived 5 minutes early and was told would be up shortly. All the girl at the counter kept saying is we are so busy... Mind you there were 3 tables filled. The cook kept loudly stating it will be a while since my... More

It's your basic pizza place and they also have a different amount of subs. We have never dined in and when we have been there it hasn't been full but there are always people dining. We usually order carryout. It does look like a very family friendly place and the prices aren't ridiculously insane. We normally order pizza. We think... More
