      My friend and I both ordered burgers medium rare. They were more rare and had no flavor at all. Listed online your menu had peel and eat shrimp which I planned to have but you did not have them when we got there. I won’t be going back anytime soon. The setting on the River was nice

      My Wife and I dined (chose the bar area) here during our long b-day weekend trip and while it's a smallish bar/restaurant, the atmosphere was upbeat, servers/bartenders were attentive and on top of things and drinks were flowing. We decided to enjoy flavorful salads along with Bartender-recommended Buffalo Shrimp and we were looking forward to some fresh Oysters. While no Cocktail shrimp or BBQ Kielbasa was available, the appetizers and Salads were outstanding. Close knit local bar stop but super friendly folks who knew how to have a good time. Couldn't have asked for more and a bit pleasantly surprising indeed. We went based on reviews and it won't disappoint!!! Thank you Bridge Patrons, Chefs and bartenders

      Went out with some friends and had an enjoyable evening, the restaurant is situated next to the river and is setup nicely. Drinks and the appetizers were very good, the mussels were extremely well done. Dinner was good, the pastas were ok. We are looking forward to trying it again in the near future.

      Waitress was rude. There was a food allergy and she was snappy. She didn’t know what she was talking about. She even complained about having a 20 person party and that we needed to get moving, like we were an inconvenience for still being there and ordering dessert. Made the reservation days in advance. We will not be returning.

      Fabulous food selection. Great peanut butter martini. Many vegan options. Had the peanut tufu app without the breading to make it vegan. It was amazing. They the vegetarian meal. It had great spice and the cashews were great. Right on the water adding to the ambience. Tonight the fire was going inside.

      It was so in a nice location, being on the water. It will be nicer in the summer. The food was quite good, I wouldn’t say exceptional but no complaints. Our service was a bit slow, it seemed that the restaurant was a bit understaffed and one woman was trying to do two jobs while still keeping a smile on her face. Not many low calorie meals were offered if any). I would go back when in the area.

      Everything was fresh and delicious. Flavor profiles and attention to detail were all considered when preparing and presenting each dish. I personally could have used more garlic in the clam chowder, but I'm Italian, so... Overall, very tasty, decent drink menu, solid food offerings and lovely ambience for our Valentine meal.

      Great brunch with creative options. Mimosa options include grapefruit, orange, cranberry. A pitcher can easily serve two, or three and not too boozy. Really good coffee and even can do a latte for you. We got the corned beef hash that had big pearl onions and large chunks of corned beef. The chicken and waffles also were good, with a big herbed savory waffle, and nice crunchy chicken. Great service and views of the water! Cozy inside, definitely a favorite place to go for special occasions.

      This was the 2nd time here and I loved the food even more than the first. Oysters were fresh and delicious. The drinks were yummy too! One in my party had the fish and chips and they looked delicious. My daughter and I both had the squash sandwich and I absolutely loved it. It was quite a different option and I was so glad I tried it. My daughter is a vegetarian, so it was a perfect option for her. They also gladly accommodated my brothers gluten free allergies. The server was knowledgeable on all the menu options for him. I will definitely be back again!

      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.

      Lunch menu is more limited than ever. Don’t know if it’s COVID related , that is, less customers or difficulty in hiring staff. The fish tacos, always a hit, are removed. Chili & cornbread not yet on menu. Mia’s across the bridge has a broader menu than the Bridge, which is a surprise. I wish you well in better times. I, visiting friends & family love the Bridge - the ambiance, River views, pleasant & professional staff & food. We’ve been fans since you started here.

      It was surprisingly quiet for a Sunday brunch! I got the chicken and waffles and my boyfriend got the healthy skillet and clam chowder, all were delicious. The only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was when the woman who brought out the food went to give my boyfriend the chicken and waffles and I said that was actually mine, she responded that she expected it to be the opposite based on the order. As if women can’t enjoy a hearty breakfast! That comment to the wrong person can do a lot of damage, and I just hope the staff will be more careful in what they say in the future.

      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.
