This is a great summer spot for lunch or dinner. Right on the water, you can drive or pull up with your boat. The deck is the place to be if the weather is good. If not, the small interior is fun. Nice, varied, menu.

Staff and menus is great. A lot of food options. We have to do gluten free, so there are a lot of choices which is very nice!!!

If you're looking for a place to dine outside this is the place. The food is good and sitting next to the harbor is great.

Lots of fried fish, seafood and in general good pub food. Mainly outdoor dockside seating. Amtrak swing bridge is fun for kids.

Fish tacos were great tasting, but being their last day serving for the season I guess they were short on adding fish. It has cabbage in it which I love but for my husband it was bitter. So beware anyone that doesn't like cabbage or Cole slaw in their tacos. Love sitting outside near the water.

A quirky restaurant with a lively setting. The service was very good and the people friendly and accommodating. The plus is that it's dog friendly. We had red stripe, Mahi Mahi and Perch. All the food was good and served with good chips.

I've heard many good reviews about bridges from friends and family . The ambiance is great. The food and service not so much. The fries were burnt and very soggy with grease. The fryer oil was obviously old as well. Our entrees were cooked from frozen. The food is food service quality. For the price the food was subpar.

Must try the Cajun shrimp and lake perch. Outdoor patio is inviting and staff is friendly and helpful. Many, many menu choices. All delicious!
