    Good Option

    got there before the crowds, seated at a table only to find out the umbrella was broken. m over to the next table, umbrella also broken. then crowd started arriving and couldn’t get a table to keep the dogs out of the sun.

    water was provided for the dogs and replenished on occasion.

    staff was attentive but seemed inexperienced. The food was good but one of the dishes was not what we ordered so there was a bit of a delay.

    overall a good place to go with Fido (Ike and Chance in our case) and we will return.

    Great outside patio

    Outside patio is very spacious enough room for the dog to lay next to the table. Server came out with a bowl of water for the dogs immediately.

    Summer Fun

    Outstanding! So happy we found this beautiful spot. Our two dogs were welcomed with open arms. Tip- go inside without pets first and the hostess will show you the back gate to the patio seating.
    The food was excellent too!

    What a find!!

    On a road trip down the coast with our 2 girls Daisy and Violet,( I checked in with Bring Fido as I always due when we travel anywhere),and we discovered this wonderful restaurant!! We had a great shaded seat on the outdoor patio overlooking the river. The server Miranda was wonderful and was super sweet to our girls,bringing them water immediately. The view was great and the food delicious! We will definately find our way back to The Bridge!

    We walked through the restaurant to get to the patio, and were seated right on the river. The waitstaff was great when Tuukka was 25 lbs, now that he's over 120# we'll see how he does. He's very well behaved, just gets playful if he sees another pup. Great food, reasonable prices, and we exited out a side gate.

    Good food by the water with your dog

    We brought our dog here after playing at the beach at Napatree Point. Very good food, and the patio on the canal is beautiful. They'll bring water for your dog if you ask. You do have to walk through the main part of the restaurant to get to the patio.

    Food is great. Prices are reasonable and the outdoor patio is beautiful. It overlooks the canal. Fun to sit and watch the swans.
