Traditional New England Fare

With a menu of traditional New England seafood and Italian dishes, the Bridgewaye offers something for most everyone. Nothing pretentious, just good old hearty fare in a bright & airy setting on the water. Great place to gather with a group.

Get there early to beat the dinner rush. This restaurant offer beautiful views of the South River near Hummarock beach, nice servers and great Italian food. One of the best veal marsala's dishes I have ever had. Enjoy a walk on the beach after dinner.

Make sure you are there by 5:30 pm at the latest with your entire party because they will not seat you otherwise. A ton of fried seafood, with some healthier options. We love to return summer after summer to celebrate birthdays and family memories we share every summer. Families are very welcomed, valet parking is a plus so is beer... More

We come here regularly. The food is always good food and the wait and bartender service is great. Kelly makes a fantastic drink! Be prepared for long waits if you arrive after 6. The atmosphere can be loud at times, so its not the place for a romantic dinner.

I have been getting Polcari's chicken Caesar salad pizza for a couple of years now. It is the best pizza I have ever tried and everyone I have brought to try it falls in love. I can't bring myself to get anything else when I visit. I have also tried the fried calamari as an appetizer and it is always... More

We walked to this bustling restaurant the other night and talked with a couple of my brother's friends at the large bar while waiting 20 minutes for a table. There is a very diverse menu with lots of good seafood choices. Our waitress was a delight and the seafood platter was large and delicious. This is a very popular restaurant... More

Great food. Wide variety of choices on the menu. Our server was attentive and friendly. Reasonable prices. We took my father-in-law who is SUPER picky and he thoroughly enjoyed his dinner!

The interior has a nice clean feel to it but expect simple decor. Simple tables, nothing fancy. Great pizza! In my opinion, average entrees for the price. don't bother with the nachos. The bar is nice and big but it fills up quickly. Good view. Go early, otherwise expect to wait.

This place can be packed but it's worth the wait. It's obviously a place where local people know the food is good and the atmosphere friendly. Excellent fish, onion strings and coleslaw.

We love the Bridgewaye ... the Polcari's are excellent hosts and they have a great chef. The food is always excellent with large portions - and the drinks are outstanding. Ask for Kelly at the bar. It can be crowded especially on weekends - but that's the sign of a great place ! Try it - you won't be disappointed... More
