For a full range of seafood and steak selections that is complemented with waterfront views, head to the edge of the Wrightsville Beach Causeway to the distinctive Bridge Tender Restaurant. Found within a unique weather-worn building, this lunch and dinner restaurant with a sweet waterfront atmosphere outside, and a warm and inviting interior, is sure to appease seafood fans and land lubbers alike.
The lunch and dinner menus extend for multiple pages, and include a full host of traditional southern entrees, and seafood or meat-based classic dishes. Lunch patrons will find a nice array of sandwiches, burgers and wraps, small entrees, and colorful salads that can be enhanced with seafood add-ons like Mahi, tuna or fried oysters. Meanwhile, dinnertime guests can treat themselves to a full meal that begins with a coastal appetizer, like Asian seared tuna or gorgonzola buffalo shrimp, and which follows with a hearty entrée like a horseradish encrusted tuna, crunchy coconut shrimp, crab stuffed flounder, or one of the Bridge Tender’s many selections of steak. There are also a handful of chicken and pasta entrees, as well as a full range of desserts, which makes the Bridge Tender an all-encompassing and perfect representation of Cape Fear cuisine at its elevated best.
