Rushford’s charm

I’ve been to Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant in Rushford a number of times since they first opened, and I am always impressed.

They provide a professional, classy dining establishment perfect for the daily lunch crowd or a night in which mom and dad feel like getting a babysitter to enjoy a night out on the town.

Lynndyn-Bridge has an extensive menu, which means I have lots of choices.

On Wednesday, March 20 (the official first day of Spring!), our sales team for the Fillmore County Journal met at Lynndyn-Bridge to celebrate the completion of the Visit Bluff Country Magazine.

Every year, we go through the process of preparing the most widely distributed tourism publication in Southeast Minnesota, Northeast Iowa, and Southwest Wisconsin. This is one of the most challenging and yet rewarding projects we coordinate every year. But, when the magazines arrive at our office in Preston, and we begin the distribution process, it’s all worth it. People love the magazine, and we appreciate the opportunity to make that happen.

So, after Sherry Hines, Sarah Wangen, Peggi Redalen, and myself ordered our meals, I asked how our team how the business climate was in each of the towns we serve for the Fillmore County Journal.

With the late breaking spring this year, the majority of our communities are clamoring at the chance to host crowds of tourists. But, beyond the anticipated tourism season, it sounds like many of our towns in Fillmore County are seeing signs of growth. Housing construction is on the rise thus far in 2013. News about business growth and development is funneling through the Journal office on a weekly basis, which is always a good sign.

When our food arrived, I was anxious to sink my appetite into the Turkey Bacon Wrap, and I was happily welcomed by a hearty and healthy meal. Actually, I was leaning toward another item on the menu, and then I heard Sherry Hines order the Turkey Bacon Wrap. I was on board to order the same thing. I have had steak, sandwiches and hamburgers at Lynndyn-Bridge, and they have all been fantastic!

While the owners, Gary and Bridgette Kampa, are always modest about the great restaurant they have brought to the greater Rushford area, they have something to brag about. The ambiance of their restaurant is truly unique -- the authenticity and the charm.

And, as our Journal lunch meeting concluded, the restaurant was filling up with a lot of recognizable faces. A couple tables in a row were occupied by my favorite dentistry crew in all of Rushford. Our family goes to Rushford Dental for all of our dental work, and it’s always nice seeing the cheerful staff -- whether at the dentist office or Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant.

For those of you looking forward to a great dining experience, you can stop by Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant on the busy corner at 102 West Jessie Street.

And, if you want a second opinion, drop “Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant” into a Google search and see what comes up. I found this review on

“My son and I ate here Sunday night. He ordered a burger and I had a steak. We both had the salad bar and shared an appetizer of chicken strips. We came in and weren t greeted immediately, but the owner was our waitress and was very friendly and welcoming when she came out of the kitchen. The salad bar is small, but has good German potato salad and pickled herring!!!! Very good !!! The chicken strips were hot and the batter fantastic. They were light and not greasy. My steak was cooked perfectly and almost tender enough to cut with a fork. My son s burger was wonderful. At any rate, he almost inhaled it. I felt the portions were good sized and appropriately priced. The atmosphere was quiet and that was nice I’d definitely recommend this restaurant and would eat here again.” - Denise

I guess I’m not the only one giving Lynndyn-Bridge Restaurant a thumbs up!
