When your not feeling fancy

Portions are large, the waitresses are friendly and drinks aren't overpriced. No frills just a working persons type of place.

We had one of the best meals. We arrived and had to wait a short period, Sometimes the wait can be long but it is worth it. Ordered the steak tips with the steak fries and the meal was really good, They have many options on the menu to try. The anti pasta salad is a good choice with there... More

Visited the New Bridge end of May 2015 with a couple of my friends. I've been several times over the last few years. Nice the food hasn't changed it's still amazing. I had the Steak Tips with the salad and a side of potato wedges. They were perfect. The boys had a rack of ribs and some pork tips. Both... More

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

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.!

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.
