This is an iconic local restaurant. No one from the area needs a Bridgeman's review. At one time there were Bridgeman's restaurants in all parts of Duluth. My mother worked as a waitress in the Lakeside Bridgemans in the 1940s. Long known for their icecream, Bridgemans also has a good breakfast and lunch menu. If you visit on a Sunday,... More

My friends and I had breakfast at bridgeman's for the first time and absolutely loved it! We had a wonderful server named Ben who took care of us and made us delicious hot fudge sundaes. Wish there was a restaurant like this in the twin cities area!

Bridgeman's has always been a favorite in Duluth since I can remember. My family has been enjoying their dinner menu items and ice cream/malts for years. Recently, we have decided to try their breakfast, which is just excellent, no matter, what your breakfast choice, though, I am partial to ordering their French toast or Belgian Waffle. The wait staff /staff... More

Wanted grand daughter to experience. Was not what I remembered but our burgers and fries were great! The Rueben is not good at all, 2-3 pieces of corned beef and did not seem like it was top of the line meat. Wouldn't order again. Malt didn't have much malt in it when I even asked for extra.

We stopped here for dinner on a day trip to Duluth. Clean and classic diner style restaurant, I had the Mushroom Swiss Burger with a Peanut Butter Malt. Great food, would return.

Bridgeman's Restaurant is a casual dining place that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. One of my favorite items to order is breakfast which can be ordered at any time of day. Other favorites are the walleye dinner served twice a week, homemade soups and desserts. The menu has a good variety of options to choose. Bridgeman's is not a fancy... More

Bridgeman's is known for its ice cream but the food choices are equally delicious. The breakfast items are served all day and the Swedish pancakes and lingonberries are great!

My mother took me here a few years back. She is gone now but I still go back for the food and the friendly wait staff. I love it that you can take out your own ice cream to take home!

Bridgeman's is a great, family-friendly option in Duluth for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I love the true diner burgers--nice and crispy around the edge, but juicy and delicious with crisp vegetables. The service is always friendly, but not necessarily fast, so plan to spend a little bit of time. Also, it's always, ALWAYS busy, so you can expect a wait... More

We visited Bridgeman's with a large group (15 of us). Shout out to Blaine, our server, for the fantastic service. Lord knows a few in my family can make the ordering process more complicated than it needs to be. The food quality surpassed all of our expectations and as mentioned, Blaine's service was excellent, with a sense of humor to... More
