Good food, relaxed atmosphere

Enjoyed a great dinner at Bridges Tavern. Reasonable prices and good service. My only down point is that it seemed rather noisy. This was also a factor that I had spent the day mostly silent at the spa. Would recommend this place for a fun, casual meal.

We thought we would drive to Bridges on a beautiful sunny afternoon for lunch with our young daughter. We have always loved Bridges - it is located in the most beautiful spot. It wasn't very busy. We waited for a very long time for drinks and menus. Menu didn't offer anything light or appealing for summer. Also, there is no... More

Check out the back patio...view is outstanding! I love any place on the water or with a view of the water and was pleasantly surprised. Service was great and staff came around often to check on us. I'll go back when I'm in the area again in two weeks

The exterior of Bridges looks inviting with it's beautiful patio and scenic waterfront views. However, looks can be deceiving. The food was below average, they have a dismal kids menu, and to top it off the service was painfully slow. We will not be back.

The setting **makes** this place. The outdoor dining area is immaculate and clearly set up for catered events, they have really out done themselves in that regard. The food was just slightly above average on price, but the quality doesn't ascend much further than "decent". Their top recommendations according to their menu: Philly Steak Egg Roles -- It's a neat... More

Lovely large outdoor patio. Menu included local ingredients. While they do have traditional pup grub they also offer a nice alternative to the norm. Good pricing. We will be visiting again.

The new menu is lack lustre and over priced to say the least.My husband and I had two draft beers each, I... More

We stopped here after visiting Collingwood on our way home to central Ontario. We wanted to sit outside and enjoy the river views but it was too cold so we moved inside. We sat in the bar area instead of one their several dining rooms in this converted old house to watch sports, have a beer and food. The food... More
