From our initial contact with our surly waitress it went downhill from that point. Her attitude was counterproductive to an enjoyable dining experience. We have never written a bad review on a restaurant but there is always a first time for everything. No need to say anything more other than we will not return.

We have had lunch at the Bridge many times. Especially out on the deck with great views of the river. The food and service were good enough to have us coming back.

This time was a disappointment

Hamburgers ordered "rare" came back well done. Only a single pickle came with.

The fried chicken sandwich was dry and tasteless. Too much bun and breading. and again, only a single pickle.

The pitcher of mimosas was basically watery orange juice.

The food has been scaled back and frankly the place is beginning to look a little ratty.

Service was ok, but the server looked like he just graduated from junior high. He tried his best.

We love this restaurant. We have been going here since we relocated to the area in 2017. Food is always tasty and the atmosphere is the best whether you are in the bar, dining room or out on the deck!

I do have to say how much I MISS the Statler Chicken dish - by far the best I have ever had!

The food had no seasoning at all. That is the biggest thing I remember. I got a burger and my friend got a chicken sandwich and they were both so gross. The service was great, the bartender was so sweet and nice, but the food ruined our experience. It was also dirty inside.

We sat outside to be able to appreciate the view and fresh air. The only negative was the yellow jackets that kept coming over to inspect our drinks and food. Not sure what they could do about unruly bees. Other than that, everything else was great.

Our waitress, Marley, was absolutely amazing. One of our littles got stung by a bee during our mealtime and Marley went above and beyond to make sure he was recovering and the rest of the party were able to enjoy what they could. Every time she approached us it was with a smile and a “what can I do to help.” Thank you Marley for making a little family stressor still quite enjoyable!

We love this place! The wait was pretty long this time, even for a small simple meal and a cup of coffee. Not sure if you guys are understaffed due to covid. Luckily the weather was gorgeous and sitting outside made up for this time and made it perfect :-)

We went with some friends and had a great time.
Both the food and the atmosphere were nice
I had the Salmon , which was cooked perfectly, nice and tender. My wife and his wife got the pork dish.
Again, it was cooked perfectly..
My friend ending up getting the chicken and waffles and thoroughly enjoyed it
He never had it before and now he is hooked
Dessert was delicious and so were the cappuccino's
We will definitely go back soon.

Was disappointed with my husbands dinner first one ordered was returned as the pork was over cooked. Ordered prime rib which came cold and waiter finally came and we asked for au jurist which also came cold. One thing was the cake which was the biggest piece of cake I ever saw and was delicious. Waiter was a little young and timid

Not the same restaurant we remember enjoying. New management has ruined ambiance. Servers do not know menu and could care less about answering questions or helping customers. Food not worth the price, would have had better meal at McDonald’s

Been a long time since I’ve been charged for coffee refills. Let alone, cold coffee. Poor server looked afraid to ask the mgr to take it off the bill. Food was mediocre and not cooked to our orders . A fruit bowl filled with mushy melon.

Just not good

We had a wonderful dining experience at the Bridge. The hostess greeted us with a smile and a warm welcome. We were seated at a quiet table at the end of the outside deck with a fabulous view of the Pawcatuck River. The swordfish tacos were delicious and our waiter, Jared, provided exceptional service. A truly great evening.

Snafu with reservation change — they never called us to confirm change. Not a big deal on its own but kind of sloppy and a little bit of a “finger wag” when we arrived.

Service — Bartender was great, really nice to kids and friendly. Waitress also very nice and friendly, but also too busy? Never came to check in. When food arrived, I asked for a glass of wine that never arrived

Food — Just OK

The menu was limited compared to what it was before the pandemic. The pork dish had a lot of garlic in it. Our family does not like garlic in large amounts. The outdoor dining space was very nice, except we had a table right near a speaker. The music was loud and not to our liking. I asked to move to a different table (there was one available further from the speaker) or to have them turn down the volume. They turned down the volume and I took off my hearing aids. I should have insisted on moving tables. We ended up going to a different place to for dessert.
