We had a late lunch and drinks with a large group last weekend. We ordered and finished our drinks before our food orders were taken and we waited over an hour and a half after ordering our food before it arrived. Quite a few guests arrived after us, ate, then left before we even got our food. We had to keep interrupting other servers who passed our table to ask for water, ice, and drink refills and several in our group resorted to walking into the bar to get drinks and ice. The food was fine, but absolutely, definitely not worth the wait. As an added bonus, there was a live earwig in my napkin/silverware when I unrolled it.

There was a life performer and the music was a nice distraction during our painfully long wait. Adding more staff and many more umbrellas for shade would really make the outdoor seating area more appealing.

My husband got the hamburger and said that it was one of the best he has ever eaten. My nachos were scarcely average as there was little chicken and the salsa was not tasty. However the beer was a specialty and excellent. Our waitress did her job well. It is a unique building next to Beaver creek.

Stopped by with my family this past weekend (it was Saturday at around 6) for dinner on our way home. The patio was beautiful and so clean. We were seated right away and our server was prompt. They were out of a few things which was slightly disappointing (mint for my drink and the jerk chicken), but my husband and I were both pleased with the food quality. Great chicken wings, amazing fries, and pretty good service. I could definitely picture a wedding reception out back. We will go back again!

Spent the weekend in Thornbury and six of us enjoyed a most pleasant lunch on the patio of the Bridge Tavern. Good menu and well presented plates. Good selection of local and international beers, very good service, would highly recommend and will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

We were visiting Thornbury the day after Canada Day and decided to stop in for bite to eat at this location Right from the start we were greeted by three servers , which was nice . Then we were seated and our server Jill came over took our drink order and followed afterwords with our food order. Very courteous and went over the menu answering any questions we had. Food was great and Jill was very pleasant. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend. Thank you for making our first visit a great one.

Great spot and beautiful patio.
