Another great little place in the middle of almost nowhere. The Covered Bridge is across from the Dunedin Golf course and although it's right off of a main road it's easily missed since there isn't much shopping or anything else except housing in this area.
When you walk in don't be surprised to see a completely open restaurant where everyone turns to watch as you enter. The open floor plan would make anyone feel like a teacher in a classroom, but the eclectic decorations and warm glow makes you feel right at home. If you missed the large sign on the door be warned that they only accept cash. This probably helps them keep their pricing so low.
There menus, both breakfast and lunch offer a bunch of all American Foods. Most of what they offer is a la carte which is nice when you could be in the mood for reese's pieces pancakes and corned beef hash or Philly cheese steak and a fresh cinnamon roll. I was trying to be good so I stuck with the corned beef hash. Jessica ordered a bunch of things to try and to take home. She got a green peppers, onions, cheese omelette with home fries and french toast. Everything is made fresh so you might be waiting a little longer then at Denny's or IHOP.
It's all worth it when you can taste the home cooking just by the smell of the food that comes to your table. With prices like $2.70 for country fried steak or $0.95 for home fries, it's worth checking this place out even on the smallest budget. The food is plain so if you like cinnamon on your french toast then you had better tell them when you place your order. The one thing that Jessica didn't like about her french toast was there wasn't much flavor until she added the syrup. As for me I was perfectly fine with my corned beef hash after pouring my usual 1/2 cup of vinegar on it.
So all in all I give The Covered Bridge 4 stars out of 5. Some of what I'm basing that on is the price and the other is the quality and portions of the food for the price. Hope that helps with your choices around the Dunedin area. Don't forget to check out the artwork downtown Dunedin.
