Beautiful view, especially if eating outdoors, however it was too warm to sit out there, even with fans on because no umbrellas. All outdoor doors were open but that led to flies inside. Took 15 minutes to see a wait staff person for just water/drinks! We had 2 handicapped patrons and we were barely given any assistance in our seating, just kinda left to fend for ourselves with no offer of helping out, better seating etc....disappointing. Also, we noticed a waitress unknowingly drop a credit card on the floor, so we retrieved it and gave it to an employee there without so much as a thank you.....come on, maybe you could use some of the chick filet manners they use......staff is quite lacking in making the customer feel special!

We visited Bridges over Father's Day for lunch, it was busy . We got a great table with a view , the service was good. The wait for food was a little longer than expected. The shrimp salad sandwich is delicious and the tuna tartare an amazing appetizer!

Bridges was the perfect spot for lunch on a June afternoon. The outdoor seating is extensive and the views are fantastic! My favorite parts were the fresh mint mojito and blondie à la mode.

Bridges is a consistently good place to dine on Kent Island. The outside seating on a nice summer evening provide beautiful water views, Maryland’s Eastern Shore at its best.

Second year in a row I've met my parents here for Mothers' Day, and despite less than ideal weather, it still didn't put a damper on things. However, I was a bit taken aback by one minor issue. As I ordered the crab vegetable soup and field greens salad with seared tuna added, I inquired about some sort of tortilla chips, crackers, or some such side accompaniment. The waitress, who was pleasant enough throughout the course of the meal, informed me that there were none available that day, but said she could provide me with some oyster crackers. That was perfectly fine, except I was perplexed when a few minutes later, I saw a nearby table being served an appetizer (crab dip, maybe) surrounded by a plate of multi-colored tortilla chips! Despite this discrepancy, our overall dining experience was enjoyable.

Although they had lost power earlier and our reservation was pushed at least an hour later due to that , which was affecting the entire Island, they got back to "business as usual" very quickly.
They provided (as usual) an outstanding experience for us. The service, the food, the drinks are why we come and as always, were not disappointed. The staff and management should be commended for keeping things going on an already chaotic day (Mothers day) and making it all work.

Beautiful restaurant with outstanding views of the Chesapeake Bay. The service and food were excellent. Our party of 8 was visiting to celebrate May Birthdays and Mother's Day. The restaurant staff were attentive and event though a storm came up during our outing, we were quickly moved inside to enjoy the remainder of our meal. Great restaurant!

We were staying the Hilton Next door and had a few options for dinner. We are glad we chose this one. It was early May and just right outside. We did not have a reservation and they placed us right near the water. Our waitress was lovely and the food was good.

The food and staff were mediocre. The waiter brought iced water at the beginning with lemon however I did not want lemon so I asked for another one. All he did was remove the lemon and give me the same glass. It still had lemon and seeds in it. Great for the scenic view but not worth the money to eat or deal with crappy service.

We had a great mid afternoon lunch sitting outside overlooking the marina. Wonderful meaty crab cake and crab pizza, plus fabulous watermelon salad combined with great beer. The restaurant is essentially all outdoors as the building can open in every direction and there is a variety of outdoor seating types including two bars right on the water. Highly recommended!
