Long time New Bridge fan

I've been going to the New Bridge for many years. Excellent steak tips and salad, my favorite order there, and just about the only thing I order. Sometimes we'll split their giant, delicious fries, and I've also had the ribs. All good.!

Chelsea is a small city north of Boston. It has three important distinctions: the highest crime rate in Massachusetts, the heaviest dependency on mass transit in the Commonwealth, and the finest sirloin steak tips on the planet Earth. Two longtime restaurants lay claim to the latter so I finally tried one of them. I am rarely in Chelsea and am... More

The New Bridge Cafe has been around for years. It is a restaurant I go to all the time as it is close to my home. The steak tips are really great and I have no idea where they get their potatoes but their fries are huge. Their house salad dressing is like no other and so good. They have... More

By far the best food around. My family and I drive an hour to enjoy their award winning tips and rice! Wish they had a location in NH!

Been going to the new bridge for years. One of the first and many have tried to copy but just can not do it. The new bridge is a bit of a ride but worth it every time. Service is fast and good. Very casual.

We went to the New Bridge after a Red Sox game. Had great pork tips, steak tips, sausage, and pasta between 3 of us. Excellent food. Our server, Maureen, was professional, friendly, and prompt. We wish the half sized portions that are available during the week were available on weekends too.

If you're a New Englander and move to the South, like I did, you will miss certain foods. Marinated steak tips are on that list. This place cooks them fabulously. Huge portions, great service, old school atmosphere.

Hand down some of the best steak tips I've tried, which are served with a generous side of huge potato wedges. Despite the great food, I will never set foot in the place unless the service has a major overhaul. I was there with a group for a work dinner, and we asked if that was OK at the time... More
