Had a great lunch with friends - food was good and prices are reasonable. The deck is nice although the noise from the traffic is noticeable.

The local brewery, which sells to the bistro, recommended it, and I thought it was a great choice. Love seeing dog friendly spots, and it looks like a great spot for locals to enjoy a beer after walking or biking the river side trail. We had a pizza and a salad and a red ale and say on the patio... More

We had a lunch and dinner and both were very good. The flavors and preparations made the food outstanding. Good service and a friendly staff. A nice variety to the menu which included fish, meat, and vegetarian dishes. They have outside dining on a deck overlooking the river.

Two for dinner on the patio during an extremely busy holiday weekend. Somewhat noisy because of the traffic volume, but the service was fast, friendly and efficient. The atmosphere informal. Our meals; crabcake salad and bbq chicken were judged to be very good. The menu prices were more than reasonable. The Bridge Bistro is worth investigating.

This bistro was pretty good. Excellent crab cakes. Thw jerk chicken quasidilla was good and hearty. Prices were a tad bit in the high side. Everything was clean. Waitress was really friendly. I would come here again.

The staff were all friendly, the food was good. The patio would be great if the umbrellas could tilt. The rotisserie chicken for dinner was delightfully tender!

Don't, just don't. 3 people, 3 different dishes and same terrible result. The ribs are amongst the worst things I have ever put in my mouth. All our party agreed their meal was terrible. I have never written a review this bad of any place but I had never been to this place and urge anyone to avoid it unless... More

54 people on motorcycles and they had our seats reserved and a really good lunch menu all waiting for us. The service was quick and the patio is a great place to take a break.

I always make a point of stopping for a meal on our way home to Cranbrook, even thought it's just a hour away. I often have the special of the day, and it is so good, I end up craving it later. So convenient too!

We have visited this restaurant multiple times over the past 10 years as this location is not far from where we live in the States. This trip was surely different. The food was very good, the service was ok, but what left a sour taste in my mouth was knowing that the exchange rate was very much in favor of... More

Welcome to the Bridge Bistro. We are an independent, locally owned restaurant, located on the highway and along the Elk River, with the most amazing views overlooking the beautiful Lizard Range. We are open 7 days a week from 11 am until 10 pm serving breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, drinks and desserts. We just had major renovations done, and feel confident that you will appreciate the new atmosphere we have created. Our menu features the regular favorites, such as salads, pizzas, quesadillas and burgers, but we also take pride in preparing other daily specials, vegetarian meals and sharing platters. From 4 pm daily, you can have a taste of our in house prepared rotisserie chicken and ribs. We look forward serving you.
