A restaurant on the water

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

is a popular destination with locals and visitors.

Founded in 1976, The Bridge Tender is a favorite for both lunch and dinner. 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.
