Bridges Restaurant - MD
Worth the drive from Tysons Corner! My perfect place for my birthday celebration!
Date night with friends 2018.09.14 Return visit to an exceptional restaurant operation. Soup prior to dinner were cream of crab and cream of mushroom. All noted how really tasty the soups were and the crab meat content of the cream of crab was bountiful. Chosen entrees were filet mignon and crab cakes. Both were great and prepared excellently and included asparagus or green beens, both very tender, which seems to be a challenge for most other restaurants. Service by C.C. was magnificant. Very attentive, and seemed to know what we needed before we did!. Great operation under the supervision of General Manager Michael Moon, who truly has a well oiled machine pumping out great food and super service. Highly recommend this great restaurant.
The only better than the fantastic water view is the great food and service. Our favorite place for a date. Can’t for our next visit!
Went here for a birthday dinner. This was the second time at this restaurant. Very consistent, good service and delicious food. The mozzarella tomato balsamic and basil appetizer was so delicious! And of course the wind was on point!
My family enjoys dining at Bridges. It is so relaxing looking at the water and watching the boats go by while you are eating.
As always, Bridges is a great restaurant. Usually we fine for dinner, but this time it was lunch for the family and everything was great...as always.
Really great experience. Crab cake was delicious. Shrimp and grits was very good, although could have used more grits! Beautiful views inside and out.
Great views, good seafood, but limited options for people with seafood allergies.
Great evening dining on the outside deck. Although we missed the usual beautiful sunsets due to an earlier shower, the temperature was perfect. Views of water and boats returning for the evening add to the ambiance.
Wide selection of beer and wine. Starters large enough to share. Our daughter-in- law and I shared the watermelon salad which they served in individual plates so we didn't have to do ourselves. My son and husband shared the traditional mussels and our waiter, Schyler, made sure they had extra bread to dip in the flavorful mussel broth.
Our entrees featured local crab cakes and soft shell crabs and we're both excellent. My husband had one of his favorites, the shrimp and grits, and would highly recommend it. Although it is listed on the menu as a small plate the serving was more than ample.
The inside can be very noisy but with the deck dining you can easily talk with friends and also hear the live music in the background. Would highly recommend making reservations if wanting an outside table or coming on the weekends.
Change of menu would be a good idea we stop there a lot.
Great scenic location on the Kent Narrows with great food and service
The atmosphere was amazing sitting next to the water and listening to the band! The band was quiet enough to still have a conversation. But the service was slow. It took about 15 min to get our first round of drinks and the portions were smaller than I was expecting. We did not take our children but I felt it was a suitable place to do so. I'd like to try again and hopefully have better service.
Great view and even better food and drinks
I had a wonderful experience at Bridges! The food, ambiance, and service was amazing! I ordered the stuffed shrimp and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!
Beautiful sunset views, a great place to dine el fresco on a summer evening.
Great overall dining in a casual atmosphere. Water views add to the ambiance. Owner is hands on.
My husband and I were staying in the nearby Holiday Inn Express in Kent Narrows, Md and saw the restaurant from the 42 Exit ramp on route 18. We went to dinner at 4:30pm, not crowded at all, and got a table dockside. We ordered a bottle of wine, and had a very attentive waitress, McKenna Fox. Our appetizers were a bit ordinary, and expensive for the quality. Calamari rings were only lightly fried, very soft, underdone; the firecracker shrimp, a bit bland.... Entrees were better: crab cake had a lot of lump crab, the yellowtail tuna very nice treatment.
The view of the water great! We did get kinda hot tho, as the umbrella did not shade us as the sun got lower on the horizon.
Our bill, $151.00 for two, seemed a little pricey, but we would go back, maybe skip the appetizers.....
Great crab cakes and soft crabs! Awesome atmosphere!
You can't beat the view! Spectacular if you sit near the windows!
The appetizer (Calamari) was a very small serving. The lunch cost (>$100) was excessive. The service as excellent (Alexandra was exceptional!).
Delicious food, great environment and gorgeous views
Bridges continues to be a favorite! We sat windowside for a great thunderstorm. Our food was excellent and the atmosphere was lively and fun. Our waitress was attentive, but never rushed us. We love this place!
Cannot comment on the food as we had none. 20 minutes after being seated and given menus, we observed two other tables, which were seated 15 minutes after us, begin to receive service. We were never approached by any wait-staff member and we left, unnoticed.
Great place to meet a friend and catch up. Our waiter, Schuyler, was attentive without getting in our face. He understood we needed time to talk and allowed us to do it. And he was funny!
My husband and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary at the bridges. The food was out of this world!!!! We ate two appetizers at the bar during happy hour. The food was cooked beautifully. At dinner I ordered a filet migion and my husband ordered pizza. My steak was to die for!!!!!! I would definitely come here again and recommend this restaurant to others. We had a great experience.
Very nice restaurant with fabulous views and sunsets. Food and drinks are quite good and not overpriced.
Amazing! I used to live in the area and returned for a weekend visit! Bridges was recommended for on the water dining and it did not disappoint!!
Location of restaurant is ideal. Would have enjoyed eating outdoors, except it was pouring rain. Inside was noisy. I ordered blackened yellowfin and found it to be too spicy. Bruschetta was tasty.
Thursday evenings are 1/2 price for a bottle of wine. We had a lovely dinner with neighbors and enjoyed several bottles of wine without breaking the bank! Good live music too. It was a very rainy evening, so this was a great way to brighten a rainy week
Our first time here and we will definitely return! The customer service was amazing, the food was very good and the view was something to be remembered.
Very little shrimp on the sandwich for the price. Cream of crab soup; Delicious!
Great place to stop for a high quality meal on the way to the beach. And they allow pets which is a definite plus. Water views, live music and Thursday half priced wine makes this a no brainer.
As always, a great meal and outstanding service. The watermelon salad is a FANTASTIC menu item for the summer!
Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the soft crab dinner and they were cooked perfectly!
Crab cake sandwich, burger and meaty pizza were all pretty good. Great views of water. A little noisy, open plan with lots of hard surfaces.
It is always a good place to stop on the way to or from the Ocean. The food on the most part is excellent and normally the service is great. We just got a slow server that day. But overall is a great place with great views of the surrounding water.
My wife and I braved a very severe lightning and thunderstorm to have dinner at Bridges. Because the weather was so bad, I believe we were probably the first guests for dinner. We sat in the covered porch area with a great view of the Bay. It was a beautiful environment despite the horrible weather. I started a great meal with a very good Maryland Manhattan straight up with rocks on the side. The food however was even better than the view. We both started with the delicious cream of crab soup. Plenty of crab meat in a delightful creamy broth. My wife had the crab cakes which were mainly lump crab with minimal filler. I had the scallops which were cooked to perfection and so so tasty.
