We always try to go here when we're visiting our friends in upstate NY. This time was a big disappointment! The food was less than average and tasted like there's a different Chef . Then our service was slow and not what we were used to.

Visited Ward's Bridge Inn for dinner since it was ranked number one in Montgomery, NY, in Trip Advisor. I have relied on Trip Advisor in the past and found it reliable but not this time. Our meal was horrible. I ordered the special New England Clam Chowder and my friend ordered the salmon salad. I ordered the Duck. The clam... More

Dined here while traveling. Walking in we liked the warm atmosphere. But then we were seated upstairs, which has zero atmosphere. You should wait for a table downstairs. Food was a bit above average; but don't go out of your way for it. Service was just OK; seemed like a large staff but poorly trained.

Whenever I am stuck for a place to eat and don't feel like driving too far, we can always get a great meal at this restaurant. From appetizer to desert, there is nothing on the menu that I wouldn't eat. The inside is old world charm and service is excellent. Reasonable and comfortable, you can't miss with this gem.

First I need to say that I've eaten here many times before and second they were quite busy on the Saturday night we had reservations for. From this visit I'm not sure why it is so well reviewed. We arrived on time for our reserved seating and had to wait five minuets or so to be seated which is fine... More

Wards Bridge Inn has everything going for it. The atmosphere in a beautiful 1800s building in the historic village of Montgomery is comfortable and welcoming. The food is excellent with wonderful specials and great service. The owners make you feel very welcome with their warm greetings. In addition take a walk around the village to see the antique stores, book... More

Thank you to my friends for treating us to this amazing piece of Orange County cuisine. TA lists this place as #1 in Montgomery restaurants and I would say that's accurate. I would add that this restaurant should be considered in your travel up The Through Way! We each tasted each other's dishes: • Macaroni & Cheese with Lobster •... More
