After much thoughtful consideration, we have decided to close the Restaurant at Bristol Harbour. We sincerely apologize to our loyal patrons for any disappointment this may cause.
Since our family bought Bristol Harbour in January of 2016, we have constantly sought to improve Bristol Harbour so that it may become the premier Finger Lakes destination. Our dedication to this goal is what pushes us to constantly evolve, so that we can support our Finger Lakes community, dedicated employees, and beloved guests. At this time, we will be using the restaurant space to expand the Bristol Ballroom. We are incredibly proud of the growth we have achieved in the wedding aspect of our business, and are honored to be one of the most sought-after wedding destinations in the Finger Lakes. Due to our high demand for weddings and the seasonality of our staff, we find it pertinent to redirect our talented staff, resources, and space into this booming branch of our business.
While we are changing our food service options, there are still plenty of ways patrons can enjoy our famous view. Our café will remain open 7 days a week during the summer season. Guests of the café are more than welcome to take their food & drinks out to the front lawn to enjoy.
Additionally, we will be hosting weekly cocktail hours open to all. Come and enjoy chef’s selection of hors d’oeuvres and a wide variety of craft cocktails, Finger Lakes wines, and local beers. Cocktail hours will be hosted twice a week starting June 3rd, and a schedule will be posted on our website in April. Additionally, should you wish to host a gathering at Bristol Harbour, our events team is more than happy to create a customized dining experience for your special event.
Please note, we look forward to having a full-service, year-round restaurant in the near future. We intend to do this through the development of Everwilde Inn & Spa at Bristol Harbour. We believe that the addition of our state-of-the-art spa amenities will allow us to create the ultimate resort experience in the Finger Lakes for both travelers and community members. Our Everwilde extension of Bristol Harbour will feature a spa which brings year-round business, and accordingly year-round dining.
Thank you to our patrons for your continued support and we look forward to serving you next season!
If you would like to see year-round dining, we would greatly appreciate your support in the approval process for Everwilde Inn & Spa at Bristol Harbour. If you would like to contact the South Bristol Town Board directly, please address a letter to:
