Sad this is the last year

This place is always busy and for a great reason. They take Ice cream sundae's to a whole new level. Instead of bowl they will but the ice cream into a half of a cantaloupe or pineapple. They are famous for the "Goop" An ice cream treat with unlike any other. You can have your treat and enjoy it... read more

We have been going to the BDI for as long as I can remember. And of course you have to sit outdoors regardless of the mosquitoes:) it's just one of those things you must do in our short summers.

BDI....Bridge Drive-In is best known for it's unbelievable list of soft ice cream flavors, sundaes, milk shakes, and other things to make your mouth literally water and eyes pop....by far the best in Winnipeg. The lines are usually fairly long but well worth the trip and wait if any. Prices are unbelievably cheap...you would expect to pay way more for... More

It's soft-serve, but real ice cream, not Dairy Queen. Long lines, but that's ok because there's an extensive menu which includes flavors like saskatoon (like a blackberry), licorice, and baby.

A visit to BDI is a Winnipeg tradition. As most reviews have mentioned, the line is always long- someone fainted in the line during our recent visit- , the parking is challenging and they only take cash. However, the soft ice cream is so creamy and they have many flavors and toppings and have some crazy combinations of flavors like... More

Have gone here many, many times over the years and have always had great ice cream. Parking can be a pain, especially on those warm summer evenings, but something usually opens up on a side street or if you dare, in the parking lot. Get your ice cream and take a nice walk over "the bridge" to gawk at some... More

I've been to BDI so many time and the ice cream is great every time. It's a must every summer. Make sure you bring cash.

I was in Winnipeg visiting and I heard that BDI had opened for the season. I have not been to BDI since 1993 when I left the city and much to my surprise nothing has changed and it's just as I remembered. CASH ONLY Worth the wait.
