A restaurant on the water 

The Bridge Tender restaurant is a favorite Wilmington NC waterfront seafood and steakhouse.

Located at the foot of the Wrightsville Beach Drawbridge,  the Bridge Tender

is a popular destination with locals and visitors.

Serving dinner:   Tuesday - Sunday 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

Founded in 1976, The Bridge Tender is a favorite for both locals and visitors. While the outdoor patio beckons during the warm weather and summer days, we have made sure our indoor seating takes advantage of the spectacular waterfront views. Large bay windows and an open floor arrangement complement the charming scenery of the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Bridge Tender menus feature fresh seafood, certified angus beef steaks,

delicious appetizers, and mouth-watering desserts.

Leashed pets under the direct supervision of their owners are welcomed on the outside bar deck.  All pets and their actions while on the property are the sole legal responsibility of their owner - meaning pet owners assume ALL liability.  All pets/emotional support animals are not permitted indoors.
