“Cozy table by the fire & great seafood”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

We ate here after a recommendation to go for seafood and sit in the bar area. We went early, 6ish or so and found the reception immediately pleasing, The male at the host stand was warm and very hospitable- a nice surprise vs. the typical pretty, ditsy hostess that most restaurants hire.

We found a perfect table right by the fire and before the live music started so we could enjoy the fire and hear each other over the table during dinner. Great window views on the river. We shared some delicious raw oysters as an app and both ordered stuffed flounder because the special sounded so good. It was well prepared (a hard dish to mess up in my opinion) and we appreciated the decadent lobster cream sauce on top and nice portions. Very friendly server and seemed like a great townie hangout for those 30 something`s who live in the area. Nice atmosphere in the bar area and great windows and lighting. The fireplace really added to the overall experience.

“not worth the money”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

I have been there a couple times and it was really not worth the money. I ordered the seafood pot pie and it was totally not what I was expecting. Mixed fish scallops and shrimp in an oil based sauce with not crust. I was very disappointed. Plus they were setting up for a party and kept opening the door. Freezing cold drafts keep blowing in. It was not pleasant. And the waitress took forever to take our order.

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed 14 November 2012 via mobile

Enjoyed my first visit to the Bridge. It was the first time having the raw oyster bar and they were delicious. The swordfish tacos were also very tasty. Service was excellent with our waiter very attentive.

“Absolutely Delicious Seafood!”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

My husband and I recently ate at this restaurant while visiting Westerly, RI. We ate seafood. Everything we ate was wonderful and very fresh and prepared wonderfully. The atmosphere was equally appealing with the fireplace going and rustic decor. It is a little pricey but not bad. I highly recommend it!

“Head for the Bridge”
Reviewed 17 October 2012

Two wonderful lunches on different days and a great dinner! Lunches were grilled sardines and the Monday Special of chowder, fish tacos and bread pudding, then the next day, delicious tuna burgers. Dinner was another round of the fish tacos and the twinny Tuesday lobster special. The service was great, the drinks as ordered and the food was outstandingly fresh. In an area that we really wanted to explore, we kept coming back as it was so good!
