Tell Us: Restaurants That Have Come And Gone in Port Washington

Which do you miss the most?

The restuarant business is a volatile industry. Many can't make it past the two-year mark.

But some restaurants that closed their doors enjoyed devoted followings. Think: JC's Clubhouse, Shanghai Pavillion and more.

Which leads to the question: which eatery from the past do you miss the most? Tell us in the comments.

Oh... the Bridge Restaurant... I lived in Port when I was a young girl. My sisters for the most part grew up there. My parents lived there and the surrounding areas most of their lives before we moved in 1971 (they are 85 and 89 now). We spent EVERY birthday at the Bridge. I loved Arlene the waitress. She would always sing "Danny Boy". We played an arcade bowling game that was in the front of the restaurant. GREAT memories. Can anyone tell me the actual address, or at least the street it was on so I can look at it on Google Maps. I think I remember it was kind of near Schreiber HS, but I was so young I can't quite remember.

@Kim, The Bridge Restaurant was at 34 Willowdale Ave near the bridge over the railroad tracks. The address is now the location of Chez Noelle, a very upscale French Restaurant. My family used to do take out pizza from The Bridge when I was fairly young.

I remember well Campy's! The pizza burgers, I never forgot - they were just the best. The owner, Campy used to come over and chat with my parents...they would joke about 'pinning your ears back' and putting us up in the chandeliers if us kids didn't behave well. Old school 'jokes' to get the kids to behave...I just remember being a bit nervous about all of that, impressionable young thing that I was in the 60s. The other place was the Chinese restaurant further down Main street, Shanghai's (?) where we learned to use chopsticks. and was always a treat to go to.
