This our "go-to" restaurant for lunch for my sister and me ... she lives in Delaware, and I live on the "western" shore of Maryland. Food is always great - super value on Wednesday and Thursday with 1/2 price bottles of wine. Had the Shrimp and Grits for the first time this visit - really yummy! Even though it is billed as a "small plate" it was a big portion for a girl's tummy at lunch. Four HUGE shrimp and a ton of sausage. The "grits" part was a surprise. I was expecting a really soft, creamy grit, but it was much chunkier - maybe stone ground grits???? At any rate, a superior meal. We started with the half-order of bruschetta, which was really yummy.

We have been going to this restaurant for lunch for several years and it was never a disappointment; this was our first time for dinner with friends, and we could not have been more pleased. Prices were reasonable and the food excellent; our friends had never been there and were delighted to find such a place.

Our group of 8 visited for New Year's Eve dinner. The food and the service was very good (considering it was NYE). What put a damper on the evening was the volume in the dining room - so loud. Nothing to absorb the sound. Could hardly hear the person next to you.

We always come as a family on Christmas Eve, and it is always fabulous. Also, I have met clients/had business meetings here, and it is great for that also. We've had "girls night out" dinners here, and it was awesome. Always great food and service.

Bridges never fails to please. My sister and I met for a Pre-Holiday lunch and had a great time. It pays to take advantage of their 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Crab flatbread is a winner! Lots of lump crabmeat and the sweetest roasted tomatoes I've ever had. Good combo from the kitchen on this one!

We loved Bridges restaurant. There was horrible traffic as we were crossing the Bay Bridge, so I called to let them know that we would be late. Not only did they hold our table, but they were extremely welcoming when we finally got there. The view is amazing. My husband and I both had the oyster po' boy sandwiches, mine with a side Caesar salad and his with fires. The sandwiches were excellent: the oysters fresh and meaty and the tomatoes incredibly flavorful. The Caesar salad was very good and my husband enjoyed his fries. This restaurant is worth the drive!

We had lunch two days in a row and were extremely pleased with everything. We then decided to have dinner there as well and it was beyond our expectations. Freshest oysters and scallops we have ever had! We will definitely go back next time we are in Maryland.

We have been to Bridges several times for lunch, and this was our first time for dinner. We invited our very best friends to join us. We were seated early (1/2 hour before our reservation time), getting an excellent table close to the water. Everything was wonderful, including our waiter. The only problem we encountered was that we were given the wrong bill. Fortunately, once that fact was discovered by us, it was quickly resolved. Our friends were very impressed with Bridges, and we hope to get together there again in the future.

Went for Restaurant Week and had a terrific dinner. Two of us had the Scallops and Risotto, which was exquisite, and two had the Pork Tenderloin with mashed sweet potatoes, which was a wonderful medley of Fall flavors. The Firecracker Shrimp and Cream of Crab Soup were delicious and the Caesar salad was reliably tasty.

Great place for a lunch or a dinner. This was our first time eating dinner, with another couple. We all enjoyed it, and a "small plate" of fish and chips was HUGE, so that was a plus! The veggie crab soup delicious and the fish special also very good. Service excellent. We were in a corner inside and it was a little noisy. We'd wanted the glass-enclosed room that also opens up in front "wall" to outside, but there was a private party going on in that. We'd eaten lunch twice before, outside, which is really nice also. There are also areas outside just for sitting and having a drink.

Great location. Was told they were out of bread at 7pm on a Saturday. Also had a 18 inch hair baked into our crab cake. After that appetites were non existent. Manager gave some money off bill for this but none of us wanted to eat anything else after that. Portion sizes were small for rest of our plates. View is great servers were nice just problems with the kitchen this visit.

The lunch menu was limited, but the seafood selections during lunch hours were awesome. The view was spectacular. Service would need more work because our drinks: ice tea and water was not re-filled. Their reservation system was not accurate because I reserved for an open deck and by the water table, but it wasn't available to us by the time we showed up. I would come back for the night light and dinner selections.
