This restaurant is set in a very nice location, you can see the river and watch traffic and people on Bridge St.. Seems to be a popular location for persons on motorcycles and pedal bikes. Parking area is hard packed gravel not too bad for motorcycles. There is a bicycle rack to stand your bikes in. There is lots of... More

We visited the restaurant last year and this year during our trip to the Blue Mountains. The food was excellent - and it was so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy nature and the ping pong table. The poutine was outstanding and the street tacos were delicious. The chicken tenders were hand breaded and extremely fresh. A... More

We sat outside at the back and we were surrounded by trees. Very comfortable location. This is not fine dining and isn't meant to be. The burger was delicious!

We biked from Collingwood to Thornbury on the Georgian Trail and stopped for a bite and a beverage at Bridges. It's a charming century building with a stunning water backdrop. They have indoor, veranda and backyard seating - all with a nice view and relaxing vibe. We had snacks and a refreshing brew before heading back - wish we could... More

The food was good... When it eventually got to our table (1 hour after ordering). Not a good first experience and will not be back. Waiting an hour for food and having an empty glass during your entire meal is just unacceptable. It's disappointing having to ask your date if you can have a sip of there drink (I would... More

I took my wife there for her Birthday, expecting a nice evening. After taking forever to take our drink order, it took even longer for it to come. We ordered our mains, and again after a half hour wait, we were told that they "were out" Drinks took longer to come, and then they forgot our appetizers in the end.... More

Weve eaten here for lunch a number of times and have been happy with a basic burger. Today we tried the salad with grilled beets and grilled chicken. The beets were not grilled, and likely out of a can. The griiled chicken was plentiful and tasteless. If it were grilled at the restaurant, there were no grill marks. The apples... More

Thank-you for your feedback, and thank-you for being a repeat customer. Our culinary team does take great pride in preparing our meals with the freshest ingredients possible. They take great care in roasting the beets in house, grilling the chicken in house, and slicing the apples to order. As with the salad, the guacamole and chips are also prepared in... More

Recently enjoyed dinner here. Great service. Cold beer. My wife enjoyed the wonton nacho dish and still talks about it. I had the salmon wellington and it was delicious. This is a good choice inThornbury.

Friends were at a table when we arrived. The waitress took about 5 minutes to appear...I said I would get a drink from the bar, but she offered to get a beer for me. After she took payment from another table and stood and discussed something with them for over 5 minutes, the waitress left the patio for my cocktail.... More
