Great

A friend and I had dinner here and it was delicious. I had the mac and cheese, she had wings and we split nachos. The portion sizes are generous, and the service was great. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. Would definitely return.

We have been regular visitors to Bridges Tavern since 2010, and it has always been a favourite! However, a event change in ownership has brought the quality of the experience down several notches. As you read reviews, be aware that new owners took over around September or so, and have slowly changed the menu. Instead of the big handmade burgers... More

This restaurant is in an amazing old mansion and has a great location for drive-by traffic. The waiter was pleasant but the kitchen staff needs improvement. I don't know how any of our group ordered hamburgs but they didn't count properly so one of our group had to sit and wait with her empty plate while the rest of us... More

Went to Bridges for Valentines dinner with my boyfriend (2015), we found the prices were a bit higher then we anticipated especially for drinks but the food was very tasty. We had a reservation and were seated on time and waited 10 minutes or so for our food which was great. We were seated on at a high table with... More

Arrived at 9 pm to have a quick bite and a drink was told the kitchen was closed I was under the impression that the restaurant/bar when I called @ 8 pm was told that they closed @ 12 midnight, this disturbs me ATTITUDE, new renovations but they need an attitude adjustment...not happy.....

My boyfriend and I ended up in Thornbury our way home from Bala Muskoka. And one of the back roads took us into Thornbury. We parked at the marina and offloaded our bikes and on we went to explore. It was the Sunday of the world cup final and we found Bridges Tavern so needless to say, we found lovely... More

Wine was great. However the calamari were tough and in a broth which I did not care for. Should I be in the area again I would give it another try.

Hidden away but worth finding! We stopped for lunch as we were passing through. The wait staff was friendly, food was very tasty and they had a nice selection of beers.

One of those locations where the food is way more than you might expect from the outside. I thought we were on to something when the front and side lots were packed with vehicles. We went twice, the first mean being fresh pickerel tacos (walleye) for my wife and pulled pork for me. The food is all locally sourced and... More
