The Charlie Horse location will soon be filled again in West Bridgewater. There will be an additional parking lot, a bigger game room — and more.    No dates for reopening but  I am sure that many will be excited. 

The Charlie Horse closed suddenly in August 2016 but according to the Enterprise will be opening up with new owner Mike Barrett.

Mike Barrett, who is no longer part of the family business, is moving in. He owns Barrett’s Alehouse in Bridgewater, North Attleboro and Fall River; Fireside Grille in Middleboro; and Castaways Bar and Grille in Bridgewater.

“The standard for granting a liquor license is showing a public need – west of 24, one liquor establishment in the town of West Bridgewater,” attorney Mark Gildea said. “I think that’s some indication of the need for an alcohol establishment in that area.”

The restaurant will undergo major renovations before it opens. There will be a second entrance added on the Pleasant Street side of the building to accommodate a new parking lot, for which the plan is still being developed.

Here is the Swampie Buzz on ADRIA

Finally tried Adria in East  Bridgewater last night. We were greeted from across the room by a gentleman who may have been the owner and seated immediately. Decided on the calamari italiano app, penne chicken and bacon alfredo, a stuffed pepper and reese’s pie for dessert. Food was yummy as expected. They could definitely benefit from a beer list (although I got a big laugh after asking what they had for beer and was initially told “coors light and an IPA”)
Dining room wasn’t busy yet our server left the busser to handle all aspects of the experience other than taking our order and dropping the check. Older gentleman checked in more than a few times (a bit too much, in my opinion, by the end of the meal it was 4-5 times) but he stood at least a table away and would lift his voice to make sure we knew it was us he was checking on
All in all a good experience, very obvious they are trying to be a success! Everyone was accommodating and polite yet missed the mark ever so slightly. Again, perhaps just my own personal preference.

My husband and I dined at Adria for the second time tonight.. Once again they didn’t disappoint. Service, food, ambiance.. Nailed it!!
FYI: we have been referred to as “food snobs”.

Well, Adria proved to be everything everyone here is saying!
The East Bridgewater restaurant served a delightful salad of chicken, spinach and pecans with bread and a dipping pesto sooo good my friend and I had seconds. We passed on dessert, opting for coffee and tea to finish our reunion.
Our server was top notch and patient since my dining companion and I had much to catch up on. A gentleman, believed to be the owner, came by a couple of times and described the ingredients in that delicious pesto.
After a bad experience when the new owner first took over, I returned 18 months later to find the former Cameron’s on the Green has become a gem known as Adria. Surely, a good place to enjoy good food.

The food is great, atmosphere is nice and the staff very friendly.
We had the Tuscan chicken, steak Tips, hamburger, and boneless buffalo chicken.
Nice and close to home too!

I posted a review of our first trip to Adria’s in East Bridgewater last Friday and I try not to be repetitive, but since we couldn’t wait to go back we took advantage of my husband having tonight off.
We had a nice conversation with Bledar the owner and were lucky to have Arlete as our server again. We’d go back just for the service, but the food also makes it worthy of a return trip.
Tonight my husband had the chicken parm and I had the moussaka. We also had dessert which we usually don’t, but the chocolate molten cake and apple crisp were excellent. If you haven’t been we highly recommended it.

Went to Adria again for lunch with 2 girlfriends. Today we had the coconut shrimp app. IT WAS DELICIOUS.. 4 Huge shrimp and a really nice sauce to go with it . There were 3 of us and 4 shrimp , I’ll never tell who got the extra one …. On to the lobster special ($ 9.99) for a lobster , no sides. THey got cole slaw and I got butternut squash. Everything was delicious. Today we didn’t get desert .
Next time I go I am going to get the fried shrimp app and a nice bowl of clam chowder. Our server was TJ ? She was lovely and very sweet. This place is so well run …. I enjoy going ….

For those who have not been as of yet, please try to make it a point to go soon Adria  This was my second visit here with the same 4 awesome folks. Today we decided on a very late lunch. Perfect timing for my tummy and I think everyone else’s. Our food was superb and the VIP treatment given us Swampies by the owner was beyond wonderful!

The food is great, atmosphere is nice and the staff very friendly.
We had the Tuscan chicken, steak Tips, hamburger, and boneless buffalo chicken.
Nice and close to home too!

Here is some of the Buzz on Hockomock Swamp Supper Club facebook group

My husband and I ordered the antipasto, then we each got the Italian platter (veal/chicken parm, ziti with sausage) I had a pumpktini martini. The portions were huge! The sauce was great. I’m picky too. We brought it home for 2 more meals each, maybe during the Pats game. We will definitely be going there again soon — at Johnny Macaroni’s.


Another fantastic meal at Johnny Macaroni. The Scala bread and oil and parmesan was delicious. I had salmon with lobster ravioli with a white sauce that had sun dried tomato and my son had baked scrod which he raved about. He could only eat half of his meal so he took the rest home for lunch at work the next day. Both meals were excellent. Scott the bartender is always friendly and professional. My son did a bartenders worse nightmare and told him to surprise him with a drink, “something unusual”. Scott thought for a minute and gave him something that had beer and rum in it. I’m not a big fan of either but the drink he made was really very good! I think it was called a dark and stormy? I have no reservations recommending Johnny Macaroni to anyone looking for a great meal.

Tonight I ordered the chicken florentine. I have to say, it was the best I’ve had. We also ordered bruschetta for the table. Delicious

Made it to Johnny Mac‘s 2 tonight in EB. The remodeled bar area looked very vice. We were seated & waited on pretty quickly. Everyone liked their meals, dinner & drinks plus tip came out to about $30 each. Not bad.
I got the piccata, which I would rate as ok. Not the best I’ve ever had but not bad.
I would go back but would try ordering a different dish next time.
Other reviews commented on the noise & I agree the place is noisy, so not the place for a quiet date night. But for a gathering with a few boisterous friends, it’s fine.


Dinner at Johnny Mac’s! I needn’t say more! But I will. That’s the portion of chicken and pasta you should get when ordering chicken parm!! And my pretty wife’s fettuccine Alfredo with chicken was fantastic. Our waitress Danielle, was not only super accommodating, but an absolute sweetheart.
