Everything was very good with the exception of the pork chop that was ordered. It was very tough and chewy. Flavor was good.

One of the best rib eye steaks we've eaten in a long time. Great atmosphere, great service, owner and management are attentive and evidently deeply care about their restaurant business and clients. Just love dining at Bridges, one of our all-time favorite local restaurant.

We had a wonderful time and felt Bridges has gone over and beyond to keep all safe.

Our waiter was fantastic and deserved the large tip we gave!!!
We would sign any petition helping to keep these safe restaurants open during the shut down

My husband and I dined at Bridges for my birthday. We receive one cocktial after 20 minutes, and a cup of soup. We where done with are drink and soup and sat there for another 30 minutes with anyone checking on us. We finally waved the manager over and told her we had been there an hour and haven't even ordered our entree. She couldn't believe that had happened. The waitress finally came and took out order which arrived fairly quick. The flat iron steak had so much gristle that, upon my best of manners had to be removed from my mouth multiple times. The waitress did try and smooth thing over by bringing me a dried out cupcake for my birthday dessert. Needless to say the entire experience was a bust, and when we got the bill, we were charged the entire amount with bit even one drink taken off the bill for waiting an hour to order. This resturant used to be our go to place for special dinners but we will NEVER go her again.

Hats off to Bridges for their responding admirably to the current Covid restrictions and challenges. Their “set-up” outdoors with partitions between tables creates a safe environment for delightful dining without looking makeshift. I will make a point in patronizing Bridges frequently throughout the pandemic. Food and service were wonderful.

Very difficult times for restaurant industry to supply quality food and to employ wait staff.
Bridges does both.
I had delicious lamb shank and my guest had Atlantic Salmon.
Cheesecake for dessert.

Wow... Bridges outdid themselves in these covid times. They had safety measures in place but we enjoyed our lunch in the privacy of an outdoor "booth". Everyone was accommodating and so friendly. I had the mixed green salad with Salmon. I almost licked my plate... others in my party had the Shrimp curry and the Rueben sandwich and were raving about them.
Also, don't forget to try the creme brulee with maple... oh my!

Highly recommend!!!!

excellent waitstaff, delicious meals, great drinks, wonderful desserts
but the Best part was sitting outside in pretty darn chilly weather and feeling SO comfortable because of the way you intelligently set up the outdoor dining area with the fabric tops, and separated areas and patio heaters. We all were so very pleased.

The restaurant’s response to covid is excellent. Tables are spaced, the heaters kept us warm, and the servers are masked and careful. The Thanksgiving menu offered a varied selection of choices which we really appreciated. We will return.

I love bridges. The patio experience is weird now because of the patricians put in place due to Covid but this is temporary. In normal times is nice.
The food could be better.
Hopefully, they will work on the food quality also.
Service was fine.

A friend’s luncheon of three was the first time together since last December. The food was outstanding, the service prompt and friendly, the ambience quiet, sheltered and heated. Above all, we felt safe with the precautions that the restaurant provided.
