"This is a great summer spot on the water. It's pretty and has a nice patio space. That said the menu is a bit all over the place. My second time for lunch I ordered the grilled cheese and it was downright gross. Served on a bun with a square brick of semi-melted cheese...with lettuce. Ick."

"I was with a group of 5 people, new to the city, and we heard about this place. The views are outstanding and the service, thanks to our waiter, Tom, was EXCEPTIONAL! We were able to make a perfect reservation time and we were immediately seated and given excellent recommendations on food and drink choices. Our party opted to split several appetizers rather than going for individual meals, which ended up being a great choice. We had the pretzels (crisp on the outside with fluffy insides served with a delicious pairing of dipping concoctions), a cheese try (four AMAZING cheeses, fruits, and crisp raisin bread slices drizzled in honey), which was to die for, and spicy chicken avocado rolls (there are simply no words to describe the phenomenal dance that took place on our palates for this one). I don't recall the name of our drink choice, but it was similar to a Moscow Mule, but instead of mint, there were blueberries.... my suggestion, go for the carafe, because you will certainly want more than one drink!"

"Overall nice spot. I look forward to trying it out when it is a little warmer and a little sunnier. We were there on a cold, spring afternoon. The place was not too full for dinner, burger was a little overdone for medium. Pickles veggies were a nice add to the dish."

"Dined at Bridge House Tavern for lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. Since the weather wasn't warm enough to warrant dining on their expansive outdoor eating area, we ate inside. Had an excellent view of the boats going by on the Chicago River. Shared a bottle of California Zinfandel, shaved brussel sprouts and the chicken, avocado wraps. Wine and brussel sprouts were good. Chicken wraps were typical fried bar-type food. Nothing special. It wasn't crowded so we enjoyed quiet conversation, the wine, and the view. People next to us had the charcuterie plate with a couple of bottles of wine, which is what I would do sitting outside on the patio on my next visit. Good place to take an out of town girlfriend to drink wine and watch the world go by."

"I really liked eating here. It's a great location, the brunch was very good, and the staff was very attentive. I took my daughter there for Easter morning brunch. The only suggestion I would have is that they have more calm music during brunch as opposed to the energetic music they were playing, which would have been great later. That's a minor criticism though. I will go back, although maybe not for brunch."

"Food was amazing! Huge portions and great prices. Perfect dinner for my boyfriend's birthday. Veal meatballs for an appetizer, he got the Po-boy (melt in your mouth meat) and I got the steak sandwich (cooked to perfection). Next time we are in town we will 100% be eating here! And our server Jay was awesome too!"

"The food here is incredible. Every time I've been here, I've gotten the tavern fries. The sauces they come with are heaven in a ramekin.
The food is a little on the pricey side, so this isn't somewhere I go every day for lunch. But it's hard to resist at least once a month.
I've had the tavern fries, butternut squash mac and cheese, spicy chicken avocado rolls, and the chicken sandwich. All of them have been great.
Service has been great.
It's a pretty small place so can get full fast. If you have your heart set on eating here, I'd try to make a reservation to be on the safe side.

"Cannot beat the outdoor seating. The food was good. Enjoyed a refreshing summer salad when I visited, but by no means the best lunch in town. Really, the outdoor seating along the river is what makes this place great!"
