The patio was dirty and the food was overwhelmingly soaked in one flavor. The service was decent. Need to paint or at least wipe down the outdoor surfaces and get a new chef.

Ambience on the beautiful patio was special. Wonderful view of the Delaware. Service was perfect and friendly. Food was good but not above average and not deserving of the higher costs. Mushroom app was special!

Beautiful setting on Delaware River sitting on patio. From there it went downhill. Our waitress smelled of cigarette smoke, maybe worst Old Fashion cocktail I’ve ever had, of the 2 Chards on the wine list they were out of one- the house was border line undrinkable. Food below average smothered in way too much cream sauce and overpriced
Too bad. Great venue (though in need of a facelift)
Will not be returning

- Needs serious renovation
- The food was boring and bland
- It took 45 minutes just to get the appetizer
- It seemed like a really run down place who puts nice clean white table cloths on the table and thinks they are up to speed but it's not hard to see they are simply not.

The wait staff was on top of every thing but the kitchen seemed to be very slow to prepare the food. The food was pretty good. I ordered the zucchini risotto and found it to be rather bland.

The food was very good, not a huge plate however, but enough. Prices were a little high, but the view of the river is worth the extra money. Great waitress, however she was so busy that service was a little slow.

Heather, our waitress was very accommodating. We had a nice table outside overlooking the Delaware. Enjoyed the salad . However, my rib eye was a little too well done but my husband loved his lamb chops . We will be back .

We live locally and it was the first time visiting the restaurant. It was just ok. Appetizers were good, entree’s were very average. There are several better options in the area at this price point. Maybe we will go back sometime for lunch.

Fantastic view of the Delaware River, ample parking via valet and terrific outdoor seating area. We were originally seated in the middle of the outdoor area and then a couple seated by the river left so we asked if we could move and the staff accommodated our request. Food was plated nicely, tasty and good value.

The food was very good however they were out of half of the menu and nothing was on draft. We were there for one hour before we finally got bread at the table. There were only 4 other tables outside, it was not a busy night and we waited over an hour for food. The waitress made the best out of a bad situation. For the price of the food, I would say this was unacceptable.

There were four of us for Mother's Day brunch buffet. The variety of food choices was excellent. Poached salmon was to die for! We felt that a 20% automatic holiday gratuity for a buffet and only a table of four, with nothing from the bar, was excessive. And for that reason, we don't go back. There are many resturants that offer a brunch without an automatic 20% gratuity.

My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary at the Center Bridge, however, it is on the river and moths are attracted to light, so when the staff turned off the lights it helped with the moths. Overall, the food was good, I would put less dressing on my Cesar salad or ask for it on the side and the tavern frys are to die for!

Over 70 degrees outside and we were seated by a wood burning fireplace that was pouring smoke into the room. Way too hot and smoky. Food taste was excellent but portions were small. Scallop entree consisted of four almost medium size scallops.

Center Bridge Inn to friends.
It was my first time there and I was hoping there would be a view of the river while dining.
They have New York prices, but food is well worth it.

Arrived to a partially empty restaurant, with Dinner reservations for 7:30, but we were not seated until over an hour later. When we were finally seated, both entrees that we wanted were sold out. Understaffed, out of food, and unapologetic. I would not recommend based on this experience.

Service was terrible kept trying to deliver drinks and food which weren’t ours. Waited very long for everything not enough servers and only 1 bartender working. Also their website never mention it was a prefixed menu for Valentines Day. Overall it wasn’t very enjoyable and overpriced.

I felt that the prix fixe was too high for this meal. The salmon was good, but the green beans were almost raw. We requested them without garlic, so my guess is that the chef did not cook them long enough. The biggest problem was the wait time. We had a 6:30 reservation and did not get served our main course until 7:30. We did not leave the restaurant until 8:45. Every phase of delivery of the food/drink was very slow.

We had a great stay. Room was large and tidy. Same as the bath. It was great to get breakfast and so convenient to grab a drink at the bar and dine at the Inn after a full day out walking around. Plus, since we were right over the bridge—we walked over for a stroll on the canal path and shopped in the farmers market. Yum!

I called ahead and asked about vegetarian and vegan options for 1 person in our party; the hostess indicated the chef can definitely prepare something and we should just ask upon arrival. Once we arrived, the waitress was flustered at the request and indicated that we had to order an entree off the menu (all of which had meat or seafood) for the side dishes we wanted, vegetable side dishes could not be combined into one order as the chef refused (which did not make sense). This was a new year's eve dinner where one of our party was extremely disappointed. In addition, our server was rushed and did not provide an overview of items (like the listing of desserts - she briefed us a partial list, which we realized after we ordered dessert as we overheard another waitress go through the list with another table) . Extremely disappointed at the services.

My wife an I dine out 2-3 times per week. We try many places in PA and NJ. Our tastes vary but we enjoy most all menus. I must say that the Centre Bridge Inn was the biggest disappointment in 2018. Multiplied by the fact that this was Christmas Eve dinner, a very special occasion. The "Crispy Duck" as read on the menu was not close to crispy nor was it typical for that item. It was about 3 ounces of duck breast, very sparse on the plate. Served with plain old mashed potatoes and roasted root veg. Cost $38.00!!

Needless to say, we both felt that we were victims to a holiday nightmare. The ambiance was cozy but
not worth the failed meal. Do yourself a favor and spend you're hard earned money elsewhere. Please.

It was Christmas Eve. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation. Valet parked our vehicle and we were seated in a small room upstairs immediately. Service by Ciedra (please excuse my guess at spelling) was consistent, friendly and excellent. Escargot was ok, a small pile on a puff pastry. Cheese platter very nice and French onion soup enjoyed. The two men in the party had the steak and I had the lamb. All the meals were plentiful and tasty the lamb especially, although I don’t think I would call four loins laid flat on the plate a rack. I did tour the downstairs room and thought it to be much more cozy and lovely but I didn’t care because we were seated by a window and could see the lights twinkling on the bridge. It was pricey and the prices were up for the holiday. The bill for three of us, each with one cocktail, came in at just over $200 pre tip.

Our experience was disappointing from the moment we arrived. CB is known for its lovely ambience situated right on the river, however despite being prompt for our reservation, we were told our table was occupied and it would be a while to be seated... or we could dine upstairs “in a cozy dining room by the fireplace”. The room was anything but cozy and the fireplace very unnotable. The first bottle of wine we ordered they did not have, then our meal stared with mediocre under-flavored appetizers (escargot and French onion soup. Fortunately the mains did make up for it with fabulous duck and rack of lamb. Others around us had similar seating experiences but yet no manager ever came to extend an explanation or small accommodation. Overall a mediocre experience on Christmas Eve.

We had a reservation on a holiday night and were extremely pleased that we were seated at a table in front of the fireplace. The staff were professional, friendly, and attentive. We enjoyed the wine and appetizers and our entrées were prepared as requested and were fantastic. We have no complaints and would recommend this dining experience.
