Lovely for a winter brunch/lunch. The cream of crab soup is delicious.

We each had the beef specials. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the top sirloin. The meat was tender and delicious. Everything was great. Including the drinks. Our server was fantastic. We love Bridges!

The service was great. The food was excellent; I had shrimp and risotto and my bf had the filet. We each had soup and dessert and we had absolutely no complaints.
We will definitely be back.

This is the second time eating at the Bridges. We were outside the first and really enjoyed the atmosphere. We were inside this time. We enjoy the outside ambiance better, but we still had a great time. We notice that there was a tent for outside seating, but that option was not available when we reserved our table. We would have really enjoyed that option. The food was good and service was excellent. Thanks

Took our family for a special night out & had a wonderful first time experience. Carolyn, our server, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Excellent food! The Coconut Shrimp are to die for, best we've had outside of Hawaii. They should serve a big plate of them as an entree -- hope they're listening. Every entree qe had was also wonderful, as were the salad. Food all came out fast & fresh. And the views would no doubt be amazing in daylight. Go, you'll love it, too.

No one in the restaurant was wearing a mask. I feel masks on the wait staff should be required.

We enjoyed the festive decorations walking in. Elijah our server was very friendly, attentive. Our food options were plentiful and after choosing, was served with enough time in between appetizers and entrees, and was very good. We had a nice window table with a view of the Bay.

Very good food - especially the oysters which were cooked perfectly. The service was good but the server could have asked a few more questions. For example, I ordered an appetizer and a salad for lunch. The server brought the appetizer before anyone else had their food. It was hot so I had to start eating before the others in my group. I should have specified that I wanted them together with everyone else's meal but he could have asked and did not.

Good was very good and view great but it was so noisy we really couldn’t visit with our friends. Noise bounces off the walls. They really need to work on fixing this. We were on the porch and even when everyone in our area left it was still terribly loud and noisy coming from main dining room. We will keep looking for another place to dine.

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.

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.
