We stayed at the hotel next store which included a free breakfast at this restaurant. There are only a few things on the menu that are included but there is something for everyone and the food and portions were really good. We enjoyed the view of the Bridge of the Gods and the River while we ate.

We had a nice lunch with family. Great service. Quick food. This place is nice and clean. We stop every time we are out this way. The burgers are a must. They also have a great salad bar. Nice little gift shop. Beautiful views too. The manager Ashley was so nice too.

There was a beautiful view from this restaurant! That is the best part about it. We had sandwiches and such - the food was fine. The view was the seller though - you can see Bridge of the Gods out the window and the river flowing by, of course. The people here were very sweet, too. And they serve Coke... More

Cool building, great view, nice collection of art hanging on the walls. The food was satisfactory, nothing great. I wouldn't come out of my way to stop here again.

We were avoiding burgers on the trip, but the Park Ranger at the dam said try it. We are certainly glad we did! Char Burger, whatever you want to call it. Home cooked comfort food. The view is amazing, too. A relaxing stop on a cool, rainy day. Take the extra time if you are in this area to stop... More

First, I'll say that this is semi-cafeteria style. You walk thru, order, take a number to your table and they bring the food to you. They offer bottled beers, ciders and such, but on tap the choices were a Deschutes Lager style beer, a light American lager and an apple cider. Just adding a good IPA would help that selection...

We were heading home and stopped in at Bridgeside. We ended up with one key locked in the ignition so the key we had wouldn't unlock the door. In the restaurant I lost the key I had. The nice lady in the gift shop helped us look for it. I was rattled and lost it in the restaurant. The gift... More

When traveling I-84 this is a must stop. Have been coming here for the last 50 years when I pass through. The food is REALLY good. Had fish and chips. The 2 pieces were the size of 4 normal pieces. The prices are very reasonable. The view of the river is incredible. Don't miss it.

You walk into Bridgeside hungry and you leave full (unless you take the food to go). The restaurant has a great view of the Bridge of the Gods.
