We were driving to Hood River in a snowstorm and just happened to see the restaurant. Had a delicious lunch. Great soups (split pea and clam chowder). Burger also good and fries the best! Also a neat view of the bridge from our table.

Perhaps the food isn't 5 star but combined with the views and exemplary service this is a five star fun outing! I was with a friend visiting from California on a cold wet day so I took her to Bridgeside and a roundtrip crossing over Bridge of the God's. We were going to be eating later at Kell's in Portland...

I drove an hour to have breakfast here. The food is prepared as ordered, delicious and plentiful. The view is stunning, what you dream of when you think of the Columbia gorge. The wait staff has always been friendly and helpful. It reminds me of the places I grew up with as a kid in the 60s.

We stayed at the Best Western next door, so we had vouchers for free breakfast. We loved the views and it was great to sit at a nice table with cutlery and crockery. The breakfast wasn't fancy but it was good.

Bridgeside is nIce, casual restaurant with outstanding view of the Bridge of the Gods. Free breakfast options are good except Biscuits & Gravy was not the type I am used to. No flavored coffee creamer. But adjacent fun gift store has flavored coffee. Thank goodness. Wished we would have tried the restaurant on our visit 4 years earlier. Good to... More

Went here for lunch after going over the bridge of the gods and turned around heading back to Portland. Salmon burger was not good, but edible enough. Pie was pretty good, but not exception. Service ok and staff friendly, but you're going here for the view of the river which is great... Enjoy!

Stayed at the Best Western Plus next door for three days with free breakfast from a select menu. Our group each got a different selection and everyone enjoyed their meal. The food, service and views where amazing. Loved the interior decorator. Rod made the most amazing mushroom soup, we ended up here for lunch and dinner several times because we... More

Cafeteria-style ordering, wait staff brings food to your table. Good menu selection, food fresh and well prepared. I had a salmon burger that was quite good. Very nice views out the windows of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods that crosses it. There is terrace dining out back but it was not in use on the windy... More
