“Well Worth a visit”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

This place was recommended by the hotel clerk and we are glad he did. Nice quiet place on the water to have drinks and dinner. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. 6 drinks and dinner for 2 was about $85, worth every penny.

“Fancy and delicious”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Wow! The view was amazing to start with and then the food was out of this world. It is a bit pricey so don't expect to say $30 here! We splurged and had a great time doing it. We brought our wine from a winery we visited earlier, but they had PLENTY to choose from. The staff was exceptional and they a gentleman playing music from his guitar. It was beautiful and a perfect way to end a perfect trip to Oregon.

“Great Light Eats”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Our party of four wasn't terribly hungry when we arrived for dinner, so we decided to try not to over-order. I selected a salad and the pork sliders, and the salad was good, but the sliders were superb! The two together were just right for a light meal and I would certainly order them again. My partner had the fish and chips. The fish was lightly breaded with panko crumbs and was easily the best ever. This restaurant has it all- wonderful food, casual and comfortable atmosphere, great staff and a view to boot.

“A Wonderful Meal!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a nice dinner at this lovely restaurant. It's location is perfect, right next door to the hotel we were staying at. We had heard good things and decided to try it for ourselves. All that we had heard from true; the meal was delicious. Our server was attentive and informative and the food was delicious. Be sure to try their soups. I had their Hungarian-Mushroom soup, while my wife enjoyed the soup of the day, which was Split Pea with Ham. I had their Cod Fish & Chips, which was the best I've ever had anywhere. The fish was oure white and breaded just perfectly. Even the fries were good. My wife enjoyed one of their vegetarian dishes, which she is still raving about. Definitely plan to eat at Bridgewater Bistro -- you'll be very glad you did!!

We ate at the Bridgewater Bistro during our stay at the Cannery Pier Hotel. The Bistro is very light and airy with a lovely setting. The meal was excellent and our server very efficient and knowledgeable. The food is well presented and the wine choice excellent. We had a most enjoyable evening.
