Had a nice diner for four in the outside pavilion with heaters. Staff was very attentive and food came promptly. The dishes where great if not a little pricy. Had a put of a problem with another customer that was smoking “outside” and the manager was dealing with it politely even though the smoker was giving him an argument. Afterward the manager came to our table and apologized for the other customer. We were able to linger over desert for over an hour (I had a Blondie browning that was awesome). We have had dinner there several times and it is rapidly becoming our favorite.

Absolutely fabulous cocktails! Dining room was full, but it was perfect for three of us to eat at a bar high top table. Same menu, great service! Pear pasta pockets were delicious! Calamari appetizer was awesome to share. Ended with an espresso martini for dessert...yum! Nice crowd in the bar area...mostly couples having dinner/drinks. Very pleasant environment!

Service, food and ambiance was great. I am afraid of dogs so they made sure no dogs were close to my table.

We venture to Bridges to celebrate our wedding anniversary
Great choice location views are great
First time dining so we had empty bellies
We were seated at a corner table in the Florida Room
Our waiter Evan was attentive professional knowledgeable & asset to any services industry
We started w/ vegetables crab soup alittle spicy for my taste otherwise good it was room temperature we ordered everything from the beginning mussel calamari bruschetta Ahi Tuna Everything was a 20 except the bruschetta it was meh… I had the stuff shrimp Hubby had crab cakes as our main entrees
Both delicious I was looking forward to a key lime pie
However not visible on the menu
Hubby had the blonde brownie delicious I had the Tennessee whiskey cake dessert special again meh… maybe because I didn’t get the pecans idk
Otherwise everything was great Hubby said he would like to return via boat & make earlier reservations so we can enjoy a stroll on the pier

Impromptu trip across the Bay Bridge and stopped by one of my favorite restaurants. The food was outstanding and the weather was perfect for an outside dining experience. Service was great, the server was very attentive!

It was my 3rd time dining here in a week. I live locally. I asked for outside dining on Open Table. They asked “ indoors or out” when we arrived. Not given the best spot.

Bridges Restaurant is a really great place right on the water, great location. We had a late lunch yesterday, they make great cocktails, the Margarita was excellent. So was the shrimp salad sandwich. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos. We ordered a bowl of cream of crab soup which was too thick for me, more like a crab sauce than a soup. The taste was good though. We shared a very tasty slice of peanut butter/chocolate Smith Island cake for dessert. Service was very attentive.

This restaurant was the best! Certainly the best place I have been on the water in Kent Narrows. Everything was perfect - excellent food, reasonably priced varied menu, terrific sunset view right on the water with great round table seating to visit with my friends, attentive friendly well trained server - couldn't have been better. If this review sounds over the top it should. We will be back!

Beautiful evening at Bridges Restaurant! Service was fantastic! Greater was prompt, our server had a great personality and made us feel so welcome. He lacked wine knowledge…but that was fine..lol.
Food came out quick for a busy night and was warm. Views from the pier tables of the bustling harbor made it picturesque. We will be back and recommend.

A wonderful outdoor dining experience on the waters of the Kent Island narrows. The good was great and the service was attentive but not overwhelming. A bit pricey but worth the added cost to enjoy a wonderful experience overlooking the water and experiencing a beautiful sunset.

This is one of our favorite places. The atmosphere was relaxing. Our server was attentive and exceptional. My husband had the halibut special. He said it was great. I had the New York strip special. It was very pricey and had quite a bit of fat and a little on the tough. This restaurant is highly recommended.
