We ate here for our anniversary celebration and it was a great experience. We got so full on appetizers I could hardly eat the GF FRIED FISH AND CHIPS! It was a bit pricey in my opinion but a great restaurant.

My wife and I stumbled into this gem by accident last Saturday and were so impressed with the attention and service, not to mention incredibly well seasoned, well portioned, and flat-damn delicious food, that we returned that evening for a dinner encore. The care Manager Tony provides was unique and personal, making us feel part of their family. This beautifully... More

We're greeted by the owners and enjoyed wonderful service as we lunched on perfectly seated salmon and sautéed oysters with a Mayan salad that would be perfect for a gluten free or vegetarian entree. A great menu of locally sourced seafood, meats and vegetables and the view of the Columbia River from this beautifully restored cannery warehouse is fabulous. Have... More

My husband and I found this restaurant in late February this year. We went there for lunch and it was unbelievable, from the setting, service, presentation, taste, etc. It was so great, that I texted my friends immediately to plan a couples getaway to stay at the nearby Cannery Pier Hotel and return to the restaurant so they could experience...

Shrimp was added to my wife's Mayan salad for $9.50 and was so overcooked I wouldn't have eaten it. My $40.00 fish of the day was an overcooked 4-5 ounce halibut steak with over salted roasted cauliflower and potato/halibut cakes. Since it was my birthday didn't see the bill until we returned home. Based on the quality of food preparation... More

We are so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your meal. We will certainly address the issue of the over-cooking on both your prawns and halibut. The 7 oz. halibut filet is expensive, we know, but the wholesale cost of halibut is through the roof--we've taken it off the menu for that very reason. We hope that you... More

Tried the Bridgewater again after a disappointing first go. Nothing has changed! This is the only restaurant in town offering 40.00 entrees. What a joke! Service is marginal or worse and about 1/3 of the way into the meal, a bus person came by wanting to remove plates and whatnot. Talk about being rushed out of a restaurant. So I... More

This restaurant has an amazing and relaxing view of the water, and it also offers great dishes. All of us chose seafood dishes, and all were satisfied. I had the pan fried oysters and a crab meat cheesecake. Both tasted from very fresh and were delicious. I would totally recommend this place and would go back again.
