“Great Food, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

This restaurant was recommended at our hotel and we loved it! There was a wait, but it was shorter than we were told when we arrived. We walked around back and down to the dock while we waited. The view is beautiful and there were some incredible boats docked to look at. Once we were seated, the service was quick and efficient. The salmon was one of the best I have had and the crab cakes were delicious as well. You could go casual or dressy here and fit it. Sit outside if you have the opportunity.

“Best Dinner Spot in Coastal Carolina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went to the Bridge Tender our lastnight staying in Kure Beach. Was a bit of a drive but worth every mile. This was our best dinner of the entire week. Great Steak Dinner. Excellent Seafood and appetizers. Excellent cocktails and a great view of the river and dock area. Service was top notch. Will definitely be going back on the next trip.

“Best Dining Deal in Wrightsville Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I'm not sure why I haven't written about this great place before. I recently visited the Bridge Tender Restaurant for a second time over Labor Day weekend and it was just as good (and affordable) as I remember. I'm not sure about the other parts of the menu, my boyfriend and I stick to the Sunset Special offered from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. There are nine entree choices (from chicken to pasta to tuna and more) plus a salad OR soup and dessert for $15.99. We have found the secret is the horseradish encrusted tuna. It is served with sticky white rice and spinach. Of course for this great price, we order a bottle of wine and walk out of the restaurant full, happy and not feeling like we broke the bank. They have outdoor seating along the canal where you can watch the boats. I'm glad I discovered this place and will keep going back.

“Good food; great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

good food with a wide selection; great service. Not too far from beaches. Did not have to wait to be seated. Nice view of intercoastal.
