Great views, good food and service. If you prefer tasty well prepared pub food then this is the place. Had the fresh chicken tenders and fries and they were delicious. Our waitress was friendly and took care of us even when it got busy. Great place! Highly recommended.

I ordered the Street Food - Fried Cod Tacos. I received 3 tacos with marginal amount of filling and maybe only got 2 ounce of fish, if that! I "tasted" the fish but there was no meaty substance to the taco. Because the tacos were small and not enough to make a meal, I ordered a side of hand-cut fries... More

Great spot to have drinks and listen to music on a Weekend afternoon but don't expect much when it comes to the food. Fries are not great, nachos overpriced for what they were (presentation was nice though)Not enough cheese or ingredients at $20! Caesar salad good, but basically this place is a bar food joint with a great outdoor patio!... More

First of all the sangria was sooo good! I ordered the guacamole & it is the store bought packaged stuff. It had no taste. 2 of us ordered the beet salad. It was only OK as it had no dressing on it. The royal with cheese was good & fries were yummy too. The fish & chips was ok but... More

Parking area is hard packed gravel not too bad for motorcycles. There is a bicycle rack to stand your bikes in. There is lots of... More

We visited the restaurant last year and this year during our trip to the Blue Mountains. The food was excellent - and it was so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy nature and the ping pong table. The poutine was outstanding and the street tacos were delicious. The chicken tenders were hand breaded and extremely fresh. A... More

We sat outside at the back and we were surrounded by trees. Very comfortable location. This is not fine dining and isn't meant to be. The burger was delicious!

We biked from Collingwood to Thornbury on the Georgian Trail and stopped for a bite and a beverage at Bridges. It's a charming century building with a stunning water backdrop. They have indoor, veranda and backyard seating - all with a nice view and relaxing vibe. We had snacks and a refreshing brew before heading back - wish we could... More
