During lunch we sat at the bar to soak up the breathtaking views with tasty cocktails. This was our first experience and visit, but won't be our last! We enjoyed the most amazing fish tacos (special requested grilled) with black beans and rice. They were the best! Our service was most excellent. Thank you again for such a wonderful experience...

While in Astoria, Oregon we asked the hotel where would be a good place to eat on the water. It took a few turns to find the "red building" near the bridge, but the search was worth it. We had a late night meal which was so good that we even came back the next day for a delightful lunch... More

We ate our dinner at the Bridgewater Bistro, with a recommendation from our Hotel front desk person and Trip Advisor. This restaurant is at and over the mighty Columbia river. We had a beautiful view of the bridge and river traffic. Our meals, service and location were superb.

The Bridgewater Bistro was quite tasty and had nice ambiance has big glass windows overlooking the water. Attentive service. Several gluten-free options (I was delighted to have the GF fish and chips, which were just what I had been craving!) and the wine selection was good too. I would eat here again.

Had an excellent meal, reasonably priced and large enough portion to share with my spouse. Next to the water and great service.

Easy parking, nice seating, good food. A tad on the high side for adult beverages, but the dinner overall was very good. Spent $100 for two entrees, half bottle of wine, two desserts and tip.

We were walking along the Riverwalk and found this restaurant at the very end just past the bridge. Our table had a nice view of the river and the room was open and airy. The service was excellent as our waitress was very personable and our food arrived just as we would have wanted. I had the Prime Dip and... More

We ate here on a recent visit to Astoria. We didn't have reservations so we had to wait over an hour to be seated. We sat at the bar for a few drinks and an appetizer. The service at the bar was good. Our dinner was also good. The shrimp was delicious. Our waitress was outstanding. Great place for a... More
