Great experience. Bar food with an upscale twist!
Great restaurant! Food was outstanding! Service great too.
Service was fantastic and they provided large amount of food.
Fish and chips is terrific and the portion is generous!! Well presented too! Moscow mule paired well!
Great evening in Chicago. Sat outside at the bar while we waited for a table along side of the river. Great food and service. Will be back again.
Love this place!!!! The food is great and you can't beat the atmosphere.
The restaurant is beautiful and the view is excellent. We had great service, but the food was not great. It all sounded good on the menu and was presented nicely, but the food missed the mark for us.
We spent a very rainy evening at the very cozy Bridge House Tavern. We quickly became a part of the restaurant's culture, due to the very friendly and engaging host staff, bartender (Patrick!) and our lovely server. The tater tots appetizer was to die for and our meals were all extremely generous portions and absolutely delicious. Despite the fact that we were drawn to the restaurant because of its inviting outside seating, we greatly enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of the inside area. Can't wait to return!!
went here for lunch during the workday with my sister - didn't sit on the patio however still had a nice view of the water. ordered avocado rolls, shrimp BLT (comes with cool bacon milkshake), and the shrimp tacos. everything was amazing! big portions too. tater tots and side salad were our included sides. had a lot leftover!
Food and service were good. The best part was our table next to the river.
Love Bridgehouse. Our waitress was so considerate, we sat inside due to the unseasonably hot weather, and without asking she placed a stationary fan near our table.
The shaved salad is my go to. Absolutely delicious!!
Food was mediocre. Great view on the river
The menu is seasonal and fresh and the service is fun and friendly. Great atmosphere!
Steak (only one dish) with excessive sauce, perhaps just a small hint and offer it in the side. Rest is nicely presented (fish and fries) and beer good temperature.
The duck tacos were great! The place was incredibly crowded even at lunch time. I'd recommend making reservations in advance to avoid a long wait.
Service was excellent, food was even better. We will definitely revisit on our next trip to Chicago.
My fiancé met my cousin and her husband for first time.
My boyfriend and I went here for a date night. I had never dined on the river before so I asked if we could sit outside. They were more than accommodating and seated us right away. Our server was very attentive and super friendly. The food was outstanding! I got the shrimp tacos and was not disappointed! The tater tots and fries were also very crispy and delicious. They also had a great beer and drink menu! Definitely would recommend!
We went there for an after work dinner with our boss from out of state and everyone enjoyed their meal and felt it was a very good deal. I was skeptical of the bacon jalapeño popcorn but it really was awesome, all the food was just great, as was the beverage selection.
Great place to enjoy a meal or simply a drink while viewing the river traffic in the heart of the city.
Great food, great service. Perfect for happy hour, or just a nice lunch or dinner.
We go here for lunch in the summer. Need reservations though. Love their fish tacos for lunch!!
We dined at Bridge House Tavern upon my Grand Aunt's request, who was in town visiting. Dining there was fabulous all the way around from the scenic location, the friendly and fast service, to the scrumptious appetizers and tasty main dishes. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!
Visiting from Toronto we arrived for lunch and sat at a perfect table by the water. The food was delicious! We started with Tavern TOTS & Avocado Bruschetta. The Steak Sandwich was tender and delicious. My guests enjoyed their meals too. It was a great start to our visit to Chicago.
Highly recommend this restaurant!
Service was top notch
The atmosphere is wonderful - outside
Nice & causal
Fun menu with Very nice portion sides
Love BHT, but there are a lot of rules. 1 being your reservation ONLY guarantees an INSIDE reservation. 2 being while you wait for your outside table at the bar you CANNOT order an appetizer because it forfeits your outside table reservation. Food is great and you can't beat the river views on a beautiful summer evening.
Food was great except for the ceviche... first time trying it and I wasn't a fan. Other than that, love the restaurant and location!
That angry pig burger was out of this world..our server was fantastic....
The location on the river is very nice and relaxing. Enjoy watching the boats go by. Food is always good and consistent.
It was a great place to celebrate my Birthday! Our server Melissa was the best!
We had a reservation at 11 am. At 11 they came to us and said the kitchen wasn't going to be open until 11:15.
My fiancé had to run after him to ask if we could at least sit down at our table in the mean time. The host had to go ask a supervisor. Who, eventually, said yes. It was a little weird of a start to a dining experience we had reservations for but overall it was good.
The food is SUPER good and prices are slightly below normal for most river side dining.
Would definitely go again
Great venue along the river with a decent menu and attentive service. We can't wait to spend more time there .
We ordered fries for the table - and they came out with four different sauces, all that we absolutely loved! We did wish that when the fries were delivered to the table, the gentleman who set them down told us what was what right away rather than us having to guess and then ask later on. We all loved our cocktails - very yummy! We ordered all different types of foods - southwest salad, the bratwurst, and the tacos - all very delicious! I almost could not finish my meal - certainly did not have space for dessert! The food and cocktails did take a little longer than we expected to come out, unfortunately.
Also, we had a reservation, though I hadn't specified that we wanted to sit outside prior to getting to the restaurant. So, we had the option of waiting (6th in line) to sit outside or be seated right away inside. I wish this was an option during the reservation portion! Sitting inside wasn't too bad, but we were excited about eating on the river - which we didn't get to see the river since we were on the far side of the restaurant.
Had an excellent meal @ the Bridgehouse Tavern -- plus bottles of wine were 50% off (Wednesday special). Our server was fantastic and the food was delicious.
Very busy, so make a reservation. Excellent summer time location on the river. Good food and service.
Great location and awesome view! Biggest downside was that making a reservation didn't guarantee outdoor seating on the river. We arrived 5 minutes early for our 8 PM reservation for a party of 2, but had to wait an additional 40 minutes for an outdoor table. Ultimately, we weren't taken to a table until about 8:35.
Good drinks and good food. Very friendly waiters and patrons
Plenty of outdoor seating on the river at 7:30 pm Thursday. Very fast service but not rushed. Good bar food, including some healthy options. The mule had almost no flavor, but others enjoyed their drinks, as did I when I switched to beer.
