    The food was overpriced. The Small plates were not worth the money. They charged $24.95 for the single Crab cake on the small plate. This is significantly than you would for a top rated crab cake in the Baltimore Washington area.

We spent some time chatting and catching up and were not rushed. Food was delicious and there was a wide variety on the menu to satisfy all our tastes! I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

    I have traveled an hour from Mlford, Delaware to dine at The Bridges Restaurant once a week for the last three weeks. Every time, the food and service have been outstanding. Can't wait until it's warm enough to sit outside to really enjoy the scenery. I have never savored a more wonderful Red Sangria, and my husband raves about the fried oysters and calamari. Shrimp over grits (my first time having grits) will be my favorite, I think. Thanks to Mr. Moon and servers Max and Shannon for a wonderful dining experience!

    The spinach salad and the fried oysters were delicious. Be warned when you order the pork loin you get an entire loin, spicy and delicious, but, leftovers for sure. The seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. The sunset from the dining room is beautiful. Can't wait to return when the outside patio is open again. Service is efficient and well paced. We drive from DC and it's worth the trip!

    This was a disappointment. The Salmon special was not great. The fish was on the verge and masked with a goopy coconut sauce. Pasta was cooked too much in the Shrimp dish. I would give it one more chance. It could have been an off night in the off season.

    Amazing food and fine wines set to breathtaking waterfront views. Whether candlelight dining or having a drink and appetizer under the cathedral ceiling in the lounge to live music, the attention to detail and quality is always evident. Bridges is truly a treasure on the Eastern Shore. In the summer, the outdoor patio dining area is dog friendly and features live music by the pavillion. Boat docking is also available for guests who travel by sea and parking is available for guests who travel by land. An amazing find not to be missed!

    Valentine dinner that was a true winner. Lobster tail fixed perfectly, Crab stuffed Flounder with an imperial sauce topping was fantastic, and all of the sides were fresh and delicious. Exceptionally well run establishment that the Manager (Michael) is obviously not taking for granted....constantly working the floor, ensuring customer satisfaction, assisting staff as needed, and keeping everyone smiling while performing an immense amount of work on a very busy night. Kudos to our server, CC, who is probably the best there is!!! If you have not tried this restaurant, point your vehicle in the direction of the Bay Bridge outside of Annapolis, go to Grasonville, and enjoy, what may very well be the best dining experience you have ever had.,

    Bridges was having a dinner special where two people could get either soup or salad, share an appetizer, choice of entre', share a dessert and any non-alcoholic drink. The food was delicious. I got cream of crab soup, shared calamari, lobster tail, and shared Blondie for dessert. It also came with a french loaf of bread. My husband got filet mignon which he raved about. Drinks ordered were the white sangria and Sam Adams winter ale. Live music was playing to top off the great atmosphere. Service was superb and very attentive to detail. I would highly recommend Bridges for any special occasion.

    1st time at Bridges and what a surprise! Beautiful bay view, warm atmosphere, GREAT food and the scallop special was outstanding. Very appropriate for our business dinner meeting - noise level was fine however it was not that busy being a weeknight. Service was very good as was the wine and menu offerings. I believe there was outdoor dining but in January and being 18 degrees, the gas fireplace was more appealing. I would absolutely recommend it and it will be on the top of my list for client dinner meetings as well as a relaxing dinner with friends. Actually, I may have to make reservations for Valentines Day!

    Return visit to this outstanding establishment proved to be a real winner. Introduced two of our friends to this great restaurant where food is only exceeded by the service. Butter nut squash soup and cream of crab soup were to two apps chosen for the evening and both were excellent.....no shortage of fresh crab meat in these two soups. Salmon with butternut squash ravioli was phenomenal, the short ribs, and Mahi Mahi were also exceptional. Can't say enough about our server C.C. who was very patient with our finicky ways, and the management continues to be superior (nice job Mike). Our friends are now big fans of Bridges as well. For dessert, don't miss the opportunity to try the "Blondie"......brownie and ice cream combo.

    The wings were good. I had the crab dip that was cold in the center and tasted like cheese whiz. The steak we had which was the special was overpowered with what was supposed to be burgundy sauce but tasted like ketchup. The steak was overpowered with huge cloves of garlic, rosemary, and what seemed like a pound of mushrooms. The steak was medium rare instead of the medium well we had ordered. The blondie dessert I ordered was very good. I would not go there again and would only recommend the wings and dessert.

    Right on the water at the Narrows, Bridges restaurant is a local gem. The food is excellent and local produce are the stars here. Seafood of course,from Crabs to Oysters and fish. The fish Taco is one of my favorites. There are excellent pizzas as well and pasta dishes. The wine list is honest and a couple days a week you can get a good bottle of wine for half the price. A great deal

    Our visit was on target from the beginning. We were seated by the water, as requested in the on-line reservation. However, because the 91-year old celebrant was blinded by the sun, the staff quickly relocated us a few feet away. Our server was knowlegeable, personable and efficient. The special of the day, a soft crab sandwich, was delectable. The soft crab was not dwarfed by a monstrous Kaiser roll, was perfectly prepared and was served with a side of tasty aoili sauce. Others' entrees were also highly rated: burger, margherita pizza, salmon club and crab melt. We enjoyed the option of fries or a small salad (field greens or Caesar) served with the sandwiches. Desserts were decadent! We'll definitely return.

    I keep passing the restaurant every time I head to the beach, and always say"Im going to go there soon!" Soon came. It was my girlfriends birthday and decided the time was right. I made the reservation online, easy enough. We got there at the reserved time, greeted in a very friendly manner. Seated quickly, service was excellent and attentive. Food came out, great! Very good food. Bill came, a little higher than I thought. We are going to try this place for lunch and see how that turns out. Since we ate there on a monday night, it wasnt very crowded. I'd like to try it in a busier setting, and when its warmer out to take advantage of the outside dining area. Bottom line; we will be back.

    We love Bridges and consider ourselves "foodies" Eating out is a sport for us. A great dinner out would NEVER be at Outback, Olive Garden or Red Lobster. Food is all freshly prepared and excellent. We had the best Ahi Tuna appetizer ever and if you are a fan of this don't leave without tasting it. The entrees were Rock fish and yellow fin tuna, both cooked correctly and accessorized beautifully. Wine list is extensive without pretentiousness. The view is SPECTACULAR! If weather permits, sit on the deck. When weather doesnt' permit, sit close to the fireplace. Service was excellent, can't wait to go back. Have no negatives about our experience.

    We discoveted this place on one if our trips to kent island. We usually go to fishermans inn during the winter on our way to the beach. This time we walked around behind to see what we would find. We are on a constant look out for outfoor restsurants so Shady, our poodle, can be with ud. Brdidged looked busy, more upscale, and the parking attendants answered our questions and were incredibly nice. The next time we went to the island we had no reservation, and they were busy, they found an outdoor table fotor us, and we had a great meal. They also have a pretty good menu. We've been going ever since...oh ands its a 3 mile trip from there to the Kent I yacht club.

    Can't say enough great things about this restaurant. Service was superb (thank you C.C.), very attentive but never invasive. The food was exceptional and reasonably priced for the exceptional quality and presentation. This is our "big find" for this summer season. Crab cakes are a definite home run-true Eastern Shore Maryland quality! Short Ribs were also excellent for those who prefer the Land Menu. We look forward to coming back! We dined on the enclosed outdoor patio where you watch the boats float by, sail boats out on the bay and locals doing their evening fishing from nearby docks as you watch the sunset clearly in your view. The General Manager (Michael Moon) was working the floor the whole time we were there, and it shows! Well done
