Comfort Food
Whether you stop by for a hearty breakfast in the morning, a savory bite for lunch or crave something for dinner that will send your stomach into a food-frenzy, Bridges Dining Company has something that will keep you coming back for more. The same says a lot about its location. The Restaurant is situated between three major Illinois bridges and each with their own historical significance. What a great way to pay tribute to a small piece of Illinois/Kentucky pride by creating a place that features familiar favorites with Chef Broussard’s personal twist. Great Service, Delicious food and Fun, make this a perfect combination. Bridges serves signature items such as BDC Chop Salad, BDC Cream Avocado Dip and our special House grind Burger. Our Menu features Barbeque items that are smoked in house with hardwood using our own signature Rubs.

We came for our anniversary dinner. I specified that in the reservation. The host recognized us immediately and stated that he had our table ready and acknowledged that it was our anniversary and congratulated us with well-wishes. Our server, Amy, was excellent. We never had to ask for anything. She was prompt and attentive. Our food was fantastic. The steaks are the best in this area. The spinach artichoke dip was incredible. We also got the onion petals, which are my husband’s favorite. The salads were very good also, with fresh cracked black pepper. The steaks were cooked exactly the way we ordered them. I was disappointed that the sweet potato casserole was no longer on the menu, but the asparagus was great, as usual, and my husband said the loaded baked potato was baked and dressed perfectly. We ordered the $13 slice of carrot cake. I mention the price because it’s worth every penny. It is the best carrot cake I’ve had anywhere, and we’ve eaten it all over the world. It’s a massive slice of cake. We had to take more than half of it home. I can’t wait to enjoy the rest of it tomorrow with a cup of coffee. Our drinks were great, too. Acceptable wine, beer, and cocktail list. I had a cup of coffee with the cake and it was hot and fresh and had a great flavor. We will definitely be back. We really enjoyed the special treatment for our special day!

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The meal and service were excellent. My wife and I both had the fillets and they were cooked just right (medium rare). The sides and salads were very good also. We found the service to be very attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a mid to upscale restaurant.

We always eat there when we stay at the Casino, good service and usually good food- my Filet was dry this time- maybe some butter or steak juices would've been good!

The quality of the beef was great. However the filet exterior had been charred instead of seared. There was no seasoning other than salt on it which left it a bit lacking of a complex flavor.

We came for my husband's birthday. We were seated in a cozy booth, which we prefer. We ordered the onion petals as an appetizer They were very good as always. We both ordered filets for dinner. I ordered mine medium-well. It was well-done. My husband ordered his medium rare. His was rare. We ate them anyway. We didn't want to complain and cast negativity over the birthday celebration. It took quite a considerable amount of time to get our food also. The restaurant got very busy as we were eating. We both had beer. It was good and cold. We will go back.

Food was excellent. I had a lobster tail and my husband had a ribeye steak. For an appetizer, we shared a bowl of French onion soup. A basket of bread was brought out before our drinks. It included a sweetened butter that was wonderful. Our server was friendly and attentive.

We were quite disappointed with the food quality. I had the drunken filet which was not very tender. It was served with mashed potatoes which were average. My friend had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin which was dry and not very flavorful. I ordered a salad which had what appeared to be grounded bacon on it and about 1 cup of hard cornbread croutons. I send it back. I could not eat it. It was not good. A patron sitting next to us suggested that we order the rib eye upon our next visit there. I am not sure that we will come back. However, our waitress was very friendly and understanding. We appreciated her for being patient.

We both had the prime rib dinner. Steak was overly fatty and tough to cut and chew. We realize prime rib has a lot of fat, but this was not good quality meat. Not much flavor. This is the only restaurant other than the buffet. Very disappointed.

Our second visit to Bridges, delicious steaks and Signature dishes, recommended for a nice quite dinner, very comfortable, no rush, knowledgeable staff, great speciality drinks. We will visit often. I dislike chain restaurants that rush you in & out, Bridges is our new dining favorite. after dinner we spent fun time in the Casino, I was a winner !!!

Kind of a spur of the moment trip. Arrived with no reservation then decided to see if I could pop one in quickly on Open Table with Iphone which I accessed thru Trip Advisor. Bingo - it worked. They were actually running 20 minutes behind but all went okay. Pretty pricey - most items 10 to 15 dollars higher than normal but it was a Casino so there is that. Steak was excellent.
Pepsi products only is a down item - ridiculous not to have Coke Products for this type operation!!

The place would be alot better if they bussed the tables. They are always short of staff to clean tables. An unpleasant dining experience when all around you are tables with dirty dishes.
