Casual Inn is a long standing family owned restaurant in Bristol, known for its great Portuguese-American food. Some locals may say it's a hidden gem. My girlfriend and I visited the Casual Inn a few weeks back with two other couples. The service here is always great, especially when you have one of the owners, Melissa supervising the front of...

Casual Inn is like a great little secret find for your dining pleasure. Looks small on the outside, but pleasantly designed on the inside. Food is great, service is great and prices are very affordable.

Our local "Cheers". The food is excellent and the service is top notch. The atmosphere is a little dark but warm. You will never have a bad meal. Best stuffies in the world.

T his restaurant is tiny and quaint , but serves delicious food of the Portugese flavor, plus other types of dishes. Have enjoyed the prime rib at a romantic dinner with my husband. I have also enjoyed a buffet of different foods at a company Christmas party. Excellent flavoring and very cozy place

Food is good, and fairly priced with daily ethnic specials. All food prepared to order. Service good. Atmosphere ok. Hard to find unless you're a local, but one of our favorite eateries.

I have not been here in a while, but so glad I went back. One of the specials that night was steamed mussels as starter. I opted to have it as an entree with a salad and fries. Mussels were perfect down to the last one (order was huge!). Service was great, especially putting up with us as we waited... More

10 people for dinner on a pretty quiet Saturday night, having been asked to order food in advance, we waited over an hour for food. I appreciate that food is cooked to order but this was a bit of a joke, it was ok but certainly nothing special. Then we waited 25 minutes between getting the bill and someone actually... More

If your in the east bay area the casual inn is a great place to eat. Portuguese cuisine with some American favorites. Try the little neck boil done in garlic and oil it's awesome. Lastly if your in a hurry don't go food is cooked to order, I recommend an app to kill some time. This place is a hole... More
