    We were warmly greeted at the riverside dock (after calling to be let in). Once inside, we were seated at a large comfortable booth and served graciously and quickly. The food was exceptionally good- especially the gnocchi. Wow! Drinks were also well prepared. Overall great experience.

    Gorgeous spaces inside and out. Enjoyed dinner with friends on a spectacular early summer evening on the patio. Attentive Service with helpful recommendations, including a visit from the manager which is a rarity these days. we will return!

    Oh, we just had such a fun & relaxing lunch at The Bridgewater Modern Grill in Milwaukee! My husband and I decided to try this place on a whim, and it turned out to be a fantastic choice. We sat outside, enjoying the lovely weather and beautiful riverside seat. Our server, who was super sweet (and mentioned she's off to England soon for some exciting architecture work on castles!), made sure we were well taken care of. Sadly, I can't seem to remember her name, but her service was top-notch! And I mean that, have not had such a great server in probably the last decade or so, greatest balance of checking in, being friendly, stepping back, etc. The owner stopped by to briefly check in as well, and he was super nice, too. A+ experience! We both opted for the Bridgewater burgers, and let me tell you, they were a hit! Cooked just right with all the fixings you'd want, these burgers were juicy and satisfying. It's not every day you find a burger that's worth writing home about, but these were. We wrapped up our meal feeling thoroughly pleased and promised ourselves to come back. If you're in the area and looking for a spot that offers great food with a lively outdoor setting, definitely check out The Bridgewater Modern Grill. It's a real gem!

    First off, they are impossible to get on the phone. We called many times to add 2 people to our reservation, but nobody EVER answered. We went down earlier than our reservation and the place had plenty of seating, so I was fine. Food was ok, not a lot of choices. Salads were good. Wait staff was newer and was not very attentive. We had to ask for her twice. One of the drinks was not made correctly and tasted terrible. Was not offered to replace it. Ambience was perfect. Will be a great place in the summer to have cocktails outside. Unknown to us before yesterday, but our friend made a reservation for 17 the day after ours. He made them at the beginning of the week and was told the event coordinator would call him back the next day, but didn’t. He had also called many times every day since then for a confirmation, but NOBODY ANSWERED THE PHONE. Finally the day of the party they answered and was told the coordinator never put it in the book and there was not any room for them. Maybe we will try again, but there are so many cool places downtown to choose from, so not likely.

    Overall our experience was not good. We came in and got seated right away took the waitress about 15 minutes to acknowledge us and bring water. I ordered my drink right away but my friends waited til the waitress came back to place their drink order. Big mistake. We placed our appetizer orders and food order at the same time, as well as their drink order. Well we didn’t receive anything else until about 30 mins after we placed the orders. We had to keep asking the server if we would be getting our drinks and she was very apologetic but drinks didn’t come out until our main course came out and by then they just didn’t taste like worth the hour wait. My friend ordered an old fashioned and it was all bourbon no garnishes were even put into the drink. They forgot one of our entrees so we waited additional time for that. Overall our experience was not good. It would’ve been understandable if the place would’ve been busy but this was not the case. Waitress made sure to bring us our check very speedy tho. None of the food gave us the desire to come back for a second chance.

    Beautiful location. I thought the food was overpriced for the portions served. Nothing wrong with the quality or service. I'll try it again sometime and order a burger (which looked like a normal meal size).
