Perhaps the food isn't 5 star but combined with the views and exemplary service this is a five star fun outing! I was with a friend visiting from California on a cold wet day so I took her to Bridgeside and a roundtrip crossing over Bridge of the God's. We were going to be eating later at Kell's in Portland...

I drove an hour to have breakfast here. The food is prepared as ordered, delicious and plentiful. The view is stunning, what you dream of when you think of the Columbia gorge. The wait staff has always been friendly and helpful. It reminds me of the places I grew up with as a kid in the 60s.

We stayed at the Best Western next door, so we had vouchers for free breakfast. We loved the views and it was great to sit at a nice table with cutlery and crockery. The breakfast wasn't fancy but it was good.

Bridgeside is nIce, casual restaurant with outstanding view of the Bridge of the Gods. Free breakfast options are good except Biscuits & Gravy was not the type I am used to. No flavored coffee creamer. But adjacent fun gift store has flavored coffee. Thank goodness. Wished we would have tried the restaurant on our visit 4 years earlier. Good to... More

Went here for lunch after going over the bridge of the gods and turned around heading back to Portland. Salmon burger was not good, but edible enough. Pie was pretty good, but not exception. Service ok and staff friendly, but you're going here for the view of the river which is great... Enjoy!

Stayed at the Best Western Plus next door for three days with free breakfast from a select menu. Our group each got a different selection and everyone enjoyed their meal. The food, service and views where amazing. Loved the interior decorator. Rod made the most amazing mushroom soup, we ended up here for lunch and dinner several times because we... More

Cafeteria-style ordering, wait staff brings food to your table. Good menu selection, food fresh and well prepared. I had a salmon burger that was quite good. Very nice views out the windows of the Columbia River and the Bridge of the Gods that crosses it. There is terrace dining out back but it was not in use on the windy... More

We just came across "The Bridge of the Gods" and saw this place so we stopped for lunch. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. I had pulled pork sandwich and it was great. My partner had the Vegie Bomb sandwich and he said it was great. Prices are moderate and it is a... More

Our meal was complimentary as part of the Best Western next door. It was good food we were able to choose off of a menu. We definitely sat at a window and jut watched all of the boat and train traffic.

Nice place. It was the old Char Burger. You order at the counter and your food arrives at your table. We ordered an assortment of hamburgers and a chicken burger with both fries and onion rings. The onion rings were the best I've had in a while. Our food arrived very quickly and the portions were generous. Everyone enjoyed their... More
