Great restaurant

Attached to the Holiday Inn. Nice atmosphere, live singing act even though it was a Wednesday. Food was excellent. The French Onion soup was incredible. (I attached a photo of it). Service was a bit slow, considering the low patron count, but still good.

We waited an hour and twenty minutes for our food. The waitstaff seemed to abandon us at one point. Spent over three hours in this terrible restaurant and the food was overlooked and tasteless. Then they offered 20 percent off the bill to make up for it. Horrific!! We will never be back here.

Not bad, chilly, & dark. Prices a bit high, not very busy for a Saturday night. Conveniently attached to the Holiday Inn.

Hello Gary5904, Thank you for your feedback about your experience on the weekend. We are very lucky to have such friendly employees that work for us at Bridges Restaurant. Saturdays are a quieter night for us but if you come on a weekday it's hard to find a seat some nights. If you get a chance to visit us again... More

Limited choice and not replenished quickly enough. Ran out of pancakes! Then replenished with French toast instead. Too expensive for what was offered. Wait staff appeared rushed.

Staying at the hotel for 2 weeks on business. Kylie made me feel along with other guests that we were at home.

Been here many times and have not had a bad meal. I know... Holiday Inn and a good restaurant... I was skeptical at first too. No more... It's nice to stay at a place that has a good meal waiting for you.

We were staying at the Holiday Inn while on a business trip to Sarnia, and were not expecting much from what we thought was just the usual hotel restaurant. We were very pleasantly surprised. The menu and food at Bridges is very good. It is definitely up there with good restaurants you can find in big cities. As there were... More

Tried the Tandoori Chicken this evening, what a waste of money, should have sent it back at first glance. If your reading this Bridges, take this dish off of your menu.

My wife, 2 kids and I were staying at the Holiday Inn hotel and decided to take advantage of the "kids eat free" coupons we received upon checking in. We walked down to the restaurant which is part of the hotel to have breakfast. My son didn't want to order off the kids menu so my wife decided she would... More

We got back to the hotel after a long day of work on a Sunday and Bridges was just about closed. Nothing else in the area was open either. Kylie was gracious and kept the Bridges bar open for us. Her excellent beer knowledge and wonderful cocktail mixing allowed us to finish our day with drink in hand as we... More
