Father Figures
Fathers, like families, come in all different shapes, sizes and configurations. Some are biological, some not. Some are young, some old, and some live on in our memory. But what they all have in common is that they have all been positive influences in our lives and loved us unconditionally--which was not always easy during those challenging teenage years!

Mark Twain and Fatherhood
The great American satirist once wrote, “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” Indeed, sometimes it takes a while for us to truly appreciate our fathers’ wisdom and experience, even if they do sometimes embarrass us by walking around the house in their underwear (when our friends were over!) or wearing socks with sandals. But, in the end, aren’t these things what make our dad’s so endearing?

Waterfront Bistro for Dad!
Much like Twain, when we look back at our fathers with adult eyes, we realize how lucky we were to have these paternal figures in our lives! So we decided the best way to fete our fabulous fathers would be to create a gorgeous Father’s Day Dinner in our Waterfront Bistro! 

Dinner with Dad in Mind
Our newly redesigned Bistro is the perfect place to bring dad on his special day! With breathtaking views of English Bay and majestic mountains, the setting is perfect for a fun family evening.

Prelude to Dinner
Before heading to our Bistro for dinner, why not take a leisurely stroll around Granville Island and check out the many shops and sights! It’s a perfect prelude to a sunset dinner with Dad.

Patio Time with Pappa!
One of the great advantages of Father’s Day being in June is our iconic Patio is open! Boasting one of the most expansive waterfront patios in the city, it’s truly the best spot to dine with Dad! You’ll have the fun of dining al fresco with the family surrounded by unparalleled views and the best menu in town! Let’s talk about that menu…

Fathers Day Special
Nothing says “Father’s Day” better than farm-fresh New York Steak with Alaskan King Crab and stuffed baked potato! The best of both land and sea, this is a Dad worthy menu to be sure! Pair this with one of our incredible micro-brews and he’ll be a happy camper!

Dad Desserts
Most Dads seem to have a penchant for the sweets, and we’ve got a wide variety of delectable sweet delights to cap off a perfect waterfront dinner! Whether he likes fresh handmade gelato, Bridges’ famous Decadence Cake or our classic cheesecake, we’ve got the dessert that will hit the spot! Chase it with a cappuccino or specialty coffee and then walk it off around the Island for the perfect evening!

Bridges: Your Family Dining Destination
Our Bridges Bistro family is excited to host your family on Dad’s big day! Come on down and bring the family! Big, small and every configuration in between, make us your family dining destination! (even if Dad is going to wear his socks and sandals).
