  • Food falls flat

    The room was nice and the service good but not great. The menu looked good and some interesting choices but the food presentation and quality fell flat. My cuban sandwich was rather tasteless on a too dry wheat roll. The house cooked potato chips were overcooked and very greasy. My brother's stroganoff had hardly any meatballs and the sauce was watery instead of thicker gravy as expected. The hamburgers were too thick so that one had to cut up with fork and knife instead of being able to hold and bite into the sandwich. Overall a disappointment for the price.

    This restaurant is located right off the river, so the dinning view is gorgeous. Our waitress was excellent, she was friendly, attentive and made the visit very enjoyable. Several at our table (including myself) took advantage of the BBQ baby back ribs and they did not disappoint! Fall off the bone meat with an incredible tangy/spice BBQ sauce. Next time in Golden, I would definitely return to this restaurant.

    We go to the Bridgewater on a regular basis for Sunday breakfast. I guess somewhere along the line we missed that it's breakfast buffet only til October. That was disappointing as we will be going elsewhere till then for our breakfast. The breakfast menu on Sunday hits the spot for all of us who come for the burrito, but the buffet missed it...

    Was at this restaurant 4 years ago, enjoyed it, and wanted my son to experience both the restaurant and their delicious buffalo burgers, only to find after arriving they no longer offered them. My son instead tried lamb burger and I had a blu cheese hamburger. Both were very good, so we still enjoyed our lunch. Wind blowing a little and by time we left, was blowing harder, which made dining outside a little uncomfortable, but overall, an enjoyable visit.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    Bridgewater grill is a simple yet good place to eat. It has great atmosphere with wonderful outside dinning and for a quite dinner the inside dinning is comfortable and relaxing. The wine list is good but is lacking. The beer is Coors which does not win any awards. Service is good. And, it will accommodate a vegan eater like myself. The rest of our party were not vegans. I go to the Golden hotel from Arvada several times a year as a little get-away. Every-time I do I eat at the Bridgewater grill at least once. By-the-way, the breakfast buffet was good for all and included things for vegans as well.

    We added 1 more after we arrived and you had no problem accommodating us. We even asked to sit outside and we were able to get a good table BUT I was in the sun & it was too hot! I'm not a fan of noisy eateries & it was very loud. The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter was excellent. I'll come back for sure but might try inside.

    We've dined here for various types of meals and apps/drinks over the years. Location (esp. when outside -- creekside) is great, food is generally quite good. Our brunch (buffet) this time was tasty, omelet chefs were friendly, but our waitress was neither welcoming, efficient, nor friendly. Yes, serving for a buffet means lower tips, but please don't take out your frustration on the patrons. Finally, what's with the low-grade coffee?? This isn't a diner --- it's fine dining. Please bring your coffee up to that level!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/12/2014
    Our waitress was training someone and that's a sad thing for this restaurant because she was terrible. A male manager dropped off our food and didn't bother asking if we needed anything or even give us a chance to ask--I had an empty drink and needed condiments. While we sat waiting for our waitress to show up and my food got cold, a female manager passed by our table twice without even glancing at us, not focused on customers at all. We were there early and the restaurant was not busy at all. Not impressed, food would have been really good if my waitress had brought me what I needed and I was able to eat it when I received it. We live about 45 min away, purposely stopped in Golden to eat here, and definitely will never be back.

    Good menu variety, tasty food and nice presentation but pricey for lunch time, not a great dessert variety. Didn't look at wine/beer/cocktails list. Very animated patio dining right by Clear Creek and riverwalk, a real nice spot in good weather, indoor dining is quieter. Very charmingly decorated hotel and restaurant with classy and modern amenities. I own a local large vacation rental and frequently try local establishments for sugestions to our of town guests. Would recommend this restaurant as destination or a short drive out of Denver.

    We had a party of 8 that included 2 children. We wanted to be on the patio and they squeezed us into a round table that would comfortably seat 5-6 with 2 tables closely on each side. There were plenty of square tables empty they could have put together to accommodate us. It was a challenge to move or even get up to use a restroom. Service was slow they dropped a plate so we had to wait for a guest to eat. The food was descent. I felt a bit overpriced for the quality. We ordered after dinner cocktails and she forgot one so again we were half finished by the time it arrived. This was a birthday celebration with our family and I was somewhat disappointed with the experience.

    My former colleagues and I recently met for lunch at the Bridgewater Grill. We sat outside and enjoyed a delicious meal with the sounds of the creek in the background. The wait staff was responsive and allowed us to linger after we finished. It was a very relaxed environment. I would recommend this place for lunch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    We went for brunch on Fathers Day and it was like being in a twilight zone of bad service. The hostess told us she would seat us and then ignored us for 20 minutes while our party of 8 stood by looking at a dining room half full of tables that were empty and seemed to be ready for seating. Our waiter fumbled everything from our drink orders to giving conflicting information about what had been 86'ed. It took an hour and a half for our food to come out and it was cool by the time it arrived. If it had been warm it would have been good. In all fairness, I did let the management know that we had a bad experience and the manager I talked to was apologetic and understanding and did adjust our bill. I won't be returning anytime soon though.

    My boyfriend wanted to come here for his birthday celebration (there were four of us celebrating). The food was good and the ambience was great. The service was a bit slow. We ordered appetizers and it took a few minutes to come back with plates. It also took a while for the waitress to come back and give water refills and ask for drink refills. Other than that, I think everything was fine.

    The restaurant is located in downtown Golden and has outdoor seating overlooking Clear Creek. We took advantage of a beautiful day and enjoyed lunch outside. The menu is somewhat varied with salads, fish tacos, chicken sandwich but contained quite a few hamburger selections. We both liked the dry-rub Bar-B-Q chicken sandwich we had which was grilled and served on a bun with lettuce and tomatoes. You can choose from several sides. I had the coleslaw which was very good and did not contain too much mayonnaise. Our server was responsive but as the restaurant became busier I did have to ask for a refill of ice tea. I would recommend the outside seating for a relaxing lunch or dinner with wonderful views, sights, sounds, and great ambience.

    We had dinner early on a Friday night. They serve local beer and the one we ordered was very good. The food was very good. I had the pomodoro (pasta, veggies, sauce), my friend had the cheesesteak sandwich. The view of the stream was lovely. This is a very comfortable place to eat. Would be great for families as well. The prices were good and the service was excellent. It was filling up with diners as we left, and there was a wedding reception on the patio.

    I had not made reservations on line before, I called the Grill to make sure they were aware we would have 5 adults in our party, and that we were celebrating our out of town guest's daughter's, 21 birthday. In my on-line reservation I asked if Bridgewater Grill did anything special for b-day celebrations, as some restaurants do - not a necessity, just a nice touch. When we arrived, we were seated at a table that was set for 4, not the 5 I had indicated on line, and then specified when I had called the on the phone. There did not seem to have been any extra thought put into our arrival, although we had specific reservations, and there was no recognition by the staff of our friends birthday. My experience was not bad, but disappointing.

    There weren't a lot of people there and we got poor service. Friendly, just not refilling water, coffee, tea, etc. Also, there were only a couple of tables seated outside and they enforced the no seating until all folks there rule. I understand when super busy, but really? The place inside and outside was dead and it was 10am.

    We've been to the Bridgewater Grill several times now and it has always provided great food and great service at a fair price. It is our favorite Golden destination for a good meal. We recently took friends that were in town from Austin and they also loved it. The steak on the Denver Restaurant Week menu is superb; cooked perfectly. Also try the corn chowder. When the weather is nice, the patio has great views of clear creek and a great atmosphere.

    I went to the Bridgewater Grill for 5280 Restaurant Week. I thought the restaurant was superb. The steak was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. Everything that I had was very well prepared and tasty, especially the brownie al a mode for dessert, oh my goodness! The restaurant is located in downtown Golden along the Clear Creek bike/walking trail, and I bet it is a great place to eat lunch during the summer while you watch people enjoy the city of Golden. Our service was very good as well.
