Setting was on the waterfront, though the evening we were there, it was foggy. Food very good and varied.

“Great Food | great service”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Now here's our experience.

Being from Texas, we made reservations for our 4th of July weekend stay in Astoria. Reservations was made and confirmed on-line. Ann & Tony the owners were very punctual in email reservations.

Our food and service was served excellent. This is the best restaurant option for a sleepy town of Astoria. The seafood selections was excellent choices.

We recommend Bridgwater and the adjoining area hotel. Great eat & Stay...!!

“A nice place”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

A lovely setting around the pier for a bustling restaurant. The food is good and the service was friendly. No Michelin stars were being one but the food was well prepared and the wine list is good. We at there twice and had decent meals both time.

This is comfortable and inviting modern restaurant under the grand Astoria Washington bridge with great menu choices.
Seafood always tastes best when sitting on the dock over looking the river.
This is an awesome and must do dining experience when
visiting Astoria.
Recommend? Yes.
Return? Yes and frequently for both lunch and dinner.
