Bridges is the classic, linens-on-the-tables type of place. The food is beautifully plated and reliably good. The prix fix menu available Sunday-Wednesday is a very nice 3 course offering. The patio is nice for a more casual feeling option.

This restaurant, in Danvile, C.A.,was made famous by the Mrs Doubtfire film, which is evident in the posters on display. Our server was delightful. She had the most smiley face I have ever seen and her smile matched her attitude. We had " small bites" , although one dish between us would have sufficed. The confit of duck salad was... More

Three of us went for a business meeting and to celebrate the completion of a project. The food was delicious, unique combinations of flavors. The server was cheerful, personable, and attentive without being fussy.

I hate happy hours from 3 to 6. Bridges is Monday through Friday all evening long in the bar area and outside patio. The food and drink choices are delicious, bravo!

Party of 10 for early dinner prior to concert. Bar and restaurant staff recognized our time restraints and met our expectations without appearing to rush us. A few of us had the prix fixe menu and the quality and value was excellent. We have eaten here before and will definitely returnfor a more leisurely meal .

I had dinner here with my family as a New Years celebration. The service was not the best, the servers continuously bumped into each other and the guests. Additionally, the food was hit or miss. The steaks were not made to order properly (it was sent back twice), which was disappointing. However, other dishes were incredible. The atmosphere was incredibly... More

Had dinner here with family recently on a weekend. Main claim to fame for this restaurant is that its featured in Mrs. Doubtfire, and since we watched the movie recently, the kids wanted to give it a try. Ambiance - restaurant has nice decor; crowded seating though - so not really a place for private conversation. Free valet parking is... More

Bridges has a great value (8.00) blue plate special that changes every month. The plate is always new and very tasty. The outside seating is very nice and makes the entire dining very enjoyable.
