Wanted a special place to celebrate my husband's birthday and Bridgewater was it in so many ways. Beautiful location below the Astoria bridge, fantastic service, and the food was amazing. Nice wine list too. Will definitely be back.

Stopped here after reading reviews while on a scenic drive through the coast. The food and service were outstanding, as were the views! Everyone ordered something different and they were all excellent. Wish we had saved room for dessert!
