Whenever we pass through Bridgton we stop here. We really like this place and have been coming here for years. Good food and the horse stable decor is great. It's cozy and homey. Plenty of parking too.

Reminded me of the 'nice' restaurants my parents went to when I was young. Good service from friendly staff. Busy with lots of people. Good beer selection and my meal of ginger honey salmon was very good. Would eat here again.
