Bridgewater Retirement Community is committed to offering fresh, healthy, and delicious dining options to all our residents. We also strive for continuous improvement. Work is underway on The Grove, and soon we’ll also have new casual dining venues: The Junction, The Nook and Gardenside Diner.

The Custer Dining Room will get an upgrade, as well. Bridgewater’s gracious main dining area will close this spring for renovations—kitchen updates are in the works, and the staff is pouring their creative energy into re-imagining the menu.

Current and new dining venues:

  • Custer Dining Room: BRC’s flagship restaurant-style dining room
  • The Junction: casual dining venue with grill, pizza oven, and action stations
  • The Nook: Beverage bar with specialty coffee and smoothies
  • Gardenside Diner: comfortable setting with all-day breakfast and perennial favorites
  • Skyline Dining Room:  well-balanced, appealing meals with tableside service
  • Countryside Kitchen: open kitchen with tableside service

With these distinct and diverse options, dining on campus will take on new life and new energy.
