“Great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Overpriced mediocre food. Great for a drink but there are so many better choices for food. Burgers are dry and salads dull. Definitely a venue that trades on its location, which is very cool by the way.

“Great location but for an interesting menu, go somewhere else”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Friday, late lunch, no lineup, that was good, but once we got to see the menu it was a bit uninspiring (same old thing). The suroundings made up for that and with a good beer and wine for my partner, i should not complain. However by the time we got served there was a surprice in the spinach salad. We were told the strawberries were going to be replaced for raspberries, OK (strange this early in season to be out of strawberries) but what we got were blueberries without excusing or telling us. The fries with the burger were cold and the extra mayonaise not delivered. The staff must have been burned out by 2pm.

“Awesome food with an awesome view!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We were starving when we ate here and there was a wait, so we sat in the bar area. There were 4 lounge-style chairs with a coffee table between us. I thought it would make it difficult, but we had so much fun! I got the Salmon Pizza - my new favorite food. So yummy! Also, the view of the water was really awesome!

“Excellent view of the water, below average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Its hard to beat the view of the Burrard bridge and False Creek in the summer. However, the food is sub-par and the service designed to churn the tables quickly.

Fish Tacos were tasteless and served with a fiery (but also tasteless) salsa.

Fish Burger was equally uninspiring. At least the fries were decent.

If Bridges could just up the quality of their food they would have many locals as repeat customers.
