    We love the food at Bridges. In fact the only thing we can say against them is that their service is slow and never seems to change. We go there often because we love their food and drinks. The bread dip they provide is the best we have ever tasted. If you don't mind a little bit slow service, the food is great.

    The Arugula and Spinach Salad with goat cheese is one of our favorites. A small plate and salad are the perfect size for lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating, watching the sunset, light breeze and listening to live music makes the great food better. While they have some nice beers and wines they could do a bit better by offering more craft beers and a few more wines.

    of the summer (so far!) We love Bridges for the food and the atmosphere. The staff is always quick and accommodating and the food is just so good. Sunsets at Bridges are the best, and I'm thinking this will become out new Sunday night spot before heading back across the Bay Bridge.

    We had reservations for our anniversary and they sat us in a great seat but the server took forever to take our order and forgot half of it so I had my food and my wife didn't have hers. He apologized but the food wasn't even that good and it took him forever to check on us and bring us our bill. It seemed like he had too many tables and we were the least important.

    It has been years since we have visited the Bridges. It has been completely rebuilt into a beautiful structure. We ordered soft shell crabs which were cooked just like we like them. Our waiter was on of the best that we have in a long time. Young very caring and personal. He made our visit special.

    We love eating outside and this is a great place to do it. Nice breeze off of the water of the bay make for a pleasant dinner. The flank steak was great well seasoned and tender. The scalops were also very good. Cooked perfectly! Drinks and service were great. We will be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 6/24/2013
    We enjoyed our dining experience outside while watching the sun set. Our dishes were each different: grilled veggie pizza that was great, small plate scallops over mushroom risotto which was fine but risotto not so flavorable or creamy but the three sea scallops were cooked perfectly, and Asian style sesame encrusted salmon over noodles which was very good. Drinks could have been better, especially for the price. We ordered mojitos that weren't that great and lacked real Lime flavor and we tasted very little rum. We wanted pina coladas but were told the ice making machine didn't work. The homemade ice cream of the day was delicious. Overall, the ambience, service and varied food selections would bring us back again.

    The food here is pretty average, although I must agree with other reviewers that the service is outstanding, and of course you have the view of the Chesapeake. If you're thinking of going, be forewarned, they do not have live crabs, unlike most of the surrounding restaurants.

    We had a terrific meal on the deck. We arrived at 5:30 because we wanted to beat the bar crowd. Unfortunately the table our party of six was given was right on the other side of the wall from the bar and the live music. We couldn't carry on a conversation. I love the deck but next time will request a table at the other end from the bar.

    I am a chef and this used to be one of my favorite restaurants. The food is good but it is not any where as good as it used to be. Some one keeps tinkering with the menu and the recipes. It is not for the better. The service remains outstanding. The wine list is wonderful. The view is beautiful. Go on a warm day and eat outdoors. You will have an enjoyable experience.

    Enjoyed our early dinner at Bridges on Mother's Day. Bright and comfortable, very nice view of the water which enhanced the dining experience. Food was presented well and tasted very good. We had a problem with one of the meals and it was promptly corrected. Only downfall is the acoustics (sound level) which seems to amplify all the conversations going on even though it was only moderately busy.

    This was my third experience at the Bridges, and they all have been excellent. Terrific menu that is diverse and dynamic. Dinning room is at once cozy and friendly. The kitchen is busy but well organized and surprisingly quiet. The staff is quick to greet and seat you, and has a good understanding of the menu and wine list. I would highly recommend it for both lunch and dinner. It is well worth the drive over the bridge.

    went to this restaurant on Valentines. The food was fantastic. Excellent filets, great sides and good wine. Waitress a little slow and didn't seem familiar with menu even though she said she had been there for over a year. Bus boy spilled sauce on my wife while clearing the table, clearly was an accident but still he seemed new and didn't do a great job cleaning up. Manager was super nice and apologetic for bus boy. Overall the food made the experience very good. I would recommend, should be fantastic spot during warmer weather with nice open deck and great views of the Narrows.
