Wonderful first visit.
The restaurant sits right off the Chesapeake Bay with immaculate views. Our waiter (Kyle) was AMAZING and he made our experience even better with his professionalism and smile. The food was delicious, fresh, and of good portion. We will definitely return in the near future.

We had a lovely dinner on the deck at Bridges. The weather was perfect sitting down by the water, our server (Lily) was attentive and friendly, and the food and drinks were absolutely delicious. Thank you for a wonderful birthday dinner, Bridges!

Food is usually perfect! 2 out of 3 of us had filet (ordered medium) that required a lot of “cutting Around d” to find pink. Very overcooked

The soft shell crabs are absolutely delicious... the chicken wings are very greasy. But it’s a seafood restaurant, so I didn’t expect chicken to be their specialty

What a gem! Spent a very memorable evening with my family who commented that this was the best crab cake that they had ever had! Of course they all had 2 so they really savored the experience. My husband loved his scallop risotto! The beautiful location and the background of calming background live music make this so worth the drive from the frantic crowds in downtown Annapolis on a Saturday evening!!

We decided to try Bridges to celebrate our wedding anniversary. While the restaurant is located in a very pretty setting, right on the water, it was not a great choice for the occasion. Although we had requested a table next to a window, with a water view, and listed on Open Table that we were celebrating our anniversary, we were instead seated next to a wall (the only view was that of the fire alarm which was next to my head attached to the wall). The acoustics were awful, as it was difficult to hear each other, and very disruptive listening to everyone else talking, along with the music playing. It is a lively place, more suited for drinking and gathering with friends that are not looking for a quiet romantic evening. The food was mediocre at best. For appetizers, we had the cream of crab soup (lukewarm, but flavorful) and the calamari (Just OK, it looked like it was from frozen, not fresh). For the entrees, I ordered the stuffed shrimp and my husband had the shrimp and grits, again, both were lukewarm, flavorful, but would have been happier to have my dinner at a higher temperature, please. Also noted that the lukewarm crab soup, appeared again disguised as a sauce on my plate but this time without the crabmeat. This was strange and a bit amateurish. I did enjoy a glass of their white sangria, but overall, pretty disappointed with the atmosphere and the food. We will not be returning for dinner any time soon.

Went to celebrate a Birthday, there was a wedding rehearsal dinner. Weather was bad so they had to move people inside. It was crowded and noisy. They did not have our first 2 selections of wine. They ended up bringing a bottle not even listed . Appetizers were good. Two of our five entrees were given to another table , we had to wait while the others ate. We have been there many times. This was our worst experience, perhaps due to new staff or lack of staff . We were given a free dessert and 15% off our bill. We will return but this was a big let down.

Very nice meal with family, great service, very accommodating staff. A bit noisy on the “porch”, but inside too much A/C cold, outside T storms threatened! Stay outside for dining if you can!

Took my friend here for her 70th birthday lunch and it was fantastic! I’ve been here many times and always love it. We both had the fish tacos ( a favorite of mine!) and they did not disappoint 😋. We sat outside under an umbrella and the breeze off the water and the view made it perfect! Can’t wait to come back!

I love it!!!! We had a reservation and the hostess seated us right away. We sat outside and saw a beautiful view of the sunset. The waitress was friendly and took our orders. The restaurant's music was at a perfect tone. We ordered the scallops and crab cakes. The timing for the food was good. The food and temperature were excellent. This restaurant is perfect for a date night. Everyone was dressy casual. (no ripped clothes/shorts!) The ambiance isn't too loud compared their neighbor across the way. :)

great service from the moment we walked in. Food was delicious and highly "presentable".

Beautiful views of the water. There is not a bad seat in the house. We can't wait to go again.

Each of the three of us asked for the salmon atop our watermelon salad to be cooked a different way: well done, medium, & rare. All were perfect. The salad was very good & the service was excellent.

Waited over 20 minutes for a server to come - we were told manager was coming to our table but that did not happen. Sangria is terrible tasted like cranberry juice. Salmon was sub par waitress tried to make up for the long wait she was very. Pleasant but did not attend and wrap around to see how appetizer was.

Great location and great opportunity but very disappointing

I met a friend there for lunch that I hadn't seen in quite awhile. The noise level was fine so we were able to have a nice visit. We had a wonderful lunch and the service was excellent. All the staff were pleasant and accommodating. We asked to be moved due to the wind at the hi top tables outside and they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful in doing this. I would certainly recommend Bridges.

Lovely location and a really top drawer restaurant. We will make a point of dining here for lunch or dinner - staff is gracious. plus plenty of water & ice for my dog! soft shell crab sandwich was perfect. Our previous visit - scallop risotto was sublime.
