We really wanted some good seafood and were very happy with their menu. We were at the restaurant after the lunch rush so we didn't see any lines. We first remarked that the chairs were very comfy - we had been walking a lot that day. My husband ordered the whole dungeness crab and said it was the best crab he'd ever had. I had the mussels and clams appetizer as a main dish and they were cooked to perfection. We shared an appetizer of smoked salmon with cream cheese, capers, and onions on sour dough bread. Everything was fresh and delicious. Service was good.

Oh Susan I'm so sorry about your bloody Mary! It should have never been overwhelming with horseradish! Did you let your server know? Please email me at info@bridgewaterfishhouse.com , so I can address this matter. Thank you

We started out with 2 cod fish n chips, then shared a cobbler for dessert. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs, we usually opt for the vegetarian menu as they have some nice choices, the fish was a nice change. Good job to the chef and crew!

We were looking for a great place for lunch in Florence and were in the Elk's thrift shop. We asked the cashier where to eat and had an overwhelming response from everyone in the place. They all said that we MUST eat at Bridgewater. Who could turn down such recommendations. It all starts with the building, which is historic, over 100 years old and nicely decorated. The staff were very welcoming and the service was just right. We had a spectacular seafood pasta, which was over the top full of shrimp, fish and mussels. There was enough for two people and this is something I would order over and over. We also had a shrimp melt, which ended up being two meals due to the size. You have a choice of salad, fries, slaw or onion rings. Our friends at the Elk's said that we must try the onion rings. The side that came with the sandwich were enough for the three of us and were huge, lightly breaded and fried. Not greasy and so tasty. I overheard a woman at the next table exclaim, "these are the best fish and chips I have ever had!". She was right. A plate amply filled with loads of fries and exactly rightly breaded fish that was so tender and tasty. We did not have dessert because we were stuffed, but the marionberry pie looked amazing. The sourdough bread and the garlic toast that come with the meals was delicious. They fly the bread in from San Francisco three times a week and heat it up before serving. So tasty and fresh. Located right in the old town of Florence, this is a place not to be missed!
