Default Homestead in Bristol

Went to the Homestead for the first time since the renovation on Saturday night and I have to say I was very surprised. The building looks great when you drive up and the there was an small outside seating area with some tables and a fire pit ( for warmer nights) . Walking in the new bar is well done very open and a nice place to sit and have a drink or dine in the booths or tables around it , or in front of the big stone fireplace. But it's all about the food and service, started out with the shrimp cocktail there were 4 good size shrimp not a disappointment . The main course was a sirloin strip that was cooked perfect with mashed potato and butternut squash , I had the 18oz prime rib which was a nice cut of beef cooked just as I had request with a loaded baked potato and squash . Added a bottle of wine and end with a very nice crème Brule for desert and I was full and happy. Our waitress Taylor was very nice attentive but not smothering around when we needed here and nice to talk to . I don't take the best pictures and I know that looks like a big piece of fat but it was sooo good Give it a try I don't think you will be disappointed

I was there a couple months ago during renovations and it was terrible. I will give it another try only because I feel like the construction caused it to be unorganized and not a great experience but the food was disappointing also.

Default Homestead / Fratello's

Been going for decades. Met all the McDonough brothers in the family as well as tried all locations. Like most restaurants, most are a hit and occasional miss. Brothers are different as night and day but the respective locations they run don't really show it!

Homestead is Bristol is my favorite of all locations. I just hope they didn't overdo the Tavern scheme and ruin the 'home cooking atmosphere' I experience in the old house. Otherwise worth the trip to Bristol.

While you are out there, visit 'downtown Bristol'. Cute little place with quaint shops and good places to eat. There is even a jazz bar on the river!

A cruise around Newfound Lake at the peak of foliage is a must see!

We also go to Homestead very often and enjoy it. It's nice in the summer to get away from the hustle and bustle of Meredith and sitting out in the patio is great. Love going there in the winter also. Never a bad meal or service.

Been going there for many years. Great restaurant! Anybody remember when Joe Boatman of the Ink Spots would be there tickling the ivories at the lounge piano? Yes, drive in to downtown Bristol and check it out. You'll be glad you did.
