Excellent dinner at Bridges. I had the monkfish special & my husband had the stuffed shrimp. We also had a dozen fresh oysters and a bottle of wine. The Tennessee Whiskey cake was also a not too sweet finish to the meal, which was perfect. Service was great, as usual.

Had another delightful lunch! We enjoy popping over to Bridges from DC. It’s a pretty drive & love the waterside location & views. And the service is always quick & efficient.

Went to Bridges for Thanksgiving. Seafood dinners were excellent, best salmon I’ve had in ages. The steak was mushy and tasteless. The waitress did take it off the bill. Halfway thru the meal we realized we hadn’t received bread like the tables around us.

We have enjoyed dining at the Bridges on several occasions but this is the first time we sat inside the restaurant. I have to say I was a little disappointed in comparison to when we have eaten outdoors. The noise level was very high and it was difficult to carry one a conversation at the table. The food was very good and the service was also good. All things being equal, we will return but maybe not until we can once again enjoy the outdoor ambiance.

Location was great, restaurant is beautiful, service excellent. Food was a huge disappointment - good presentation but my fish was tasteless and somewhat dry. I have eaten at most of the restaurants on Kent Island and I will not be returning here. Pricey and mediocre food.

I believe the server was Carolyn. EXCELLENT !!! She was very knowledgeable, polite, friendly and attentive. We could see that the restaurant was a bit understaffed at the time, but she and a couple of others were working very hard and smiling the whole time. We had one appetizer and 3 entrees for our family, plus one bottle of wine that was a half-price special. All were excellent. Looking forward to the next visit. The only thing I didn't like was that the entree's were a bit high priced. With everything , it was about $100. Had it not been a birthday, I would have held back on the wine and the appetizer. Still a very good time and the service was excellent, as I said.

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!

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

Food was disappointing. Had the shrimp salad sandwich. Shrimp was minced up, not enough and soupy.
