Description: Welcome to the Bridge Bistro. We are an independent, locally owned restaurant, located on the highway and along the Elk River, with the most amazing views overlooking the beautiful Lizard Range. We are open 7 days a week, Monday - Friday, 11 am until 10 pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 am - 10 pm, serving breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, drinks and desserts. We just had major renovations done, and feel confident that you will appreciate the new atmosphere we have created. Our menu features the regular favorites, such as salads, pizzas, quesadillas and burgers, but we also take pride in preparing other daily specials, vegetarian meals and sharing platters. From 5 pm daily, you can have a taste of our in house prepared rotisserie chicken and ribs. We look forward serving you.

We have eaten at Rip'n Richards a number of times over the past few years and always enjoyed the food. The new restaurant (by the bridge??) has changed the menu and it no longer is interesting or really tasty. I would call our food mediocre, especially for the price. We won't be back!

Dear "newoldintown"!

I do appreciate that you took the time to review our restaurant. I am sorry to hear that you did not like our menu. We have added organic rotisserie chicken and ribs, but we have kept pizzas, quesadillas and burger as well as many choices from the grill, as they are and have always been very popular choices.
Our prices ranges for lunch from $4 - $12.95, and for dinner with appetizers starting at $6, and main courses at $11. It would be interesting to hear what you had for your meal. I truly believe that our kitchen staff and front end staff would have done their best to make sure you had a good experience. If you would like to contact me directly to discuss your experience I would be happy to receive an email with your details, and hopefully we can correct what was not up to standards, and maybe be able to serve you again in the future.

A good place for some pints and casual service. Had good service and the waitress put up with a pretty tough group. Food was good, but relatively average. The beer was cold.

Dear "with_teeth_1977"
Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. It is great to hear that you and your group had a good time, with good service and cold beer. As the owner I take pride in the food we serve, and I hope that you will revisit us in the future, and that we then will exceed your expectations.
