Welcome to the Bridge Bistro. We are an independent, locally owned restaurant, located on the highway and along the Elk River, with the most amazing views overlooking the beautiful Lizard Range. We are open Sunday to Tuesday from 11 am until 9 pm and Wednesday to Saturday 11 am until 10 pm serving breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, drinks and desserts. We just had major renovations done, and feel confident that you will appreciate the new atmosphere we have created. Our menu features the regular favorites, such as pizza, quesadilla and burger, but we also take pride in preparing more different meals, such as bison short ribs, elk meat balls, vegetarian risottos. The chef prepares many different specials and we have a great dessert maker in our kitchen staff line up. We look forward serving you.

Not what I expected, but was pleasantly surprised. The flavours were great, but the heat could be turned down on this dish OR a warning added to the menu.

My parents really enjoyed their meals; my dad had a chicken/rib combo and my mum had a steak with a mushroom sauce. I had ribs and they were really peppery and dry. I had to ask for extra bbq sauce and when it came it was a completely different sauce to the one I already had. My dads ribs weren't... More

I had dinner on the terrace overlooking the river. I chose the cod. It was served in a dill cream sauce, with grilled veggies and scallops! Fabulous and purged peas which were really good. The serving looked small but Filled me up. A little pricy but well worth the money.

Food was really good but smaller portions. Atmosphere is great. Awesome spot for a light lunch that doesn't feel greasy or heavy

I was hesitant about eating here as it had very mixed reviews. Glad we tried it though. The food was amazing, everything on the menu sounded great, restaurant was clean and the patio was gorgeous. They also have a kids menu and high chairs. I give this a 4 though as we had asked for the kids menu to come... More

This was a great stop for lunch on a sunny day. Really enjoyed the friendly staff and the view from the deck. There was so much variety on the menu it was difficult to settle on just one item.

Breakfast on the deck next to the creek. Good, friendly service (Emma) and a tasty breakfast. Eggs Benedict and a frittata with yummy potatoes.

I had duck tacos, which were self assembly. A nice medley of shredded vegetables with succulent duck, and what appeared to be homemade soft tacos. Very tasty, accompanied by a local IPA beer.
