Bridges is our family's go-to spot for celebrations! Birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, etc. The food is amazing and the desserts are fantastic! We love the calmer, quieter brunch times, and always look forward to our meal.

Wonderful anniversary dinner. Great menu. Server was very attentive and the food amazing. The swordfish was very fresh and the portion was hearty. The mushroom ravioli were flavorful and tender. Was able to enjoy a couple of ravioli for lunch the next day as the potion was also hearty.

Ben is a wonderful waiter and must have overheard that it was my husband’s birthday and brought out a cupcake with candle in it without me asking!

Lunch was lovely and we all ordered the noodle salad and it was delicious. The server was very accommodating and helpful to several guests who had walkers and needed extra assistance. The original reservation was for five but later corrected to six via the confirmation notice but table was still set for five which was quickly corrected. For a change there was adequate parking as we had an 11:30 reservation.

Our appetizer arrived without a problem but we were unable to get our waiters attention to take our order for dinner. We had an engagement at the theater following dinner and when we did finally get the order placed it was quite a rush to get the food out to us. The food was only mediocre and we were forced to eat our meal in 5 minutes. I was very disappointed, we usually have a much better experience at this restaurant.

Our breakfast dishes, the Chinese sausage scramble and pastrami hash, were very good and reasonably priced. We're eager to try the lunch or dinner offerings on our next visit. Service was appropriately attentive, not hovering. The decor was pleasingly simple.

The food was delicious!!! We started with the baked Brie and lettuce cups. The Brie was so soft and creamy and was counter balanced by the honey drizzle. The lettuce cups were super savory and tasty, if not a touch too salty. We then had the special which was the duck breast and also the steak. The duck was perfectly balanced between salty crispy skin and the plum wine reduction. The steak was good, but not amazing. It was a solid choice. To end the night, the soufflé was absolutely a must. The toffee ice cream and pecan streusel tied everything together decadently.

Unblieveable experience at Bridges!! Had a reservation at 5:30 and I was on time. After being seated and after waiting 10 minutes we were finally given a menu. The waiter said he would return with wine glasses and to uncork or bottle!! Never happened I had to uncork my own bottle while waiting!! I then had to ask a bus boy to bring us glasses! A different waiter brought our glasses. This same waiter came back and took our order 10 minutes later!! Eventually our own waiter return and we advised him that our order was taken!! Not once did he fill our glass of wine!! Really bad service and cold in the restaurant other patrons complained!! But the worst of all when I got my bill I was charged a corkage fee of $20!! Unblieveable!! I paid it but I did bring it to my esters attention that charging $20 for corkage for bad service and I did all the work was not good business!!

Bridges has been a gem of a Danville restaurant since the days of Mrs. Doubtfire! Pricy but worth every penny.
