Scallops and Risotto was delicious. Scallops were large and had wonderful texture. Starter of Firecracker Shrimp was a generous portion, certainly plenty for two people, and very tasty. Love the Wasabi sauce. Wine list is very nice, too.

The food is always wonderful at Bridges. The atmosphere right on the water cannot be beat! The wine selection was very nice. Service, atmosphere, food is a must for every diner in the area.

Excellent food! We ordered wings, crab cake dinner, and rockfish dinner. Beautiful presentation! Also EXCELLENT service- there was a man running the place- helping host, busing tables, and making sure things were getting done.. if he wasn't the owner, the owner is damn lucky to have this gentleman running the show!

Usually we have enjoyed going to Bridges, but the bar noise was so loud and the wait staff so distracted that it was a rather unpleasant evening.

The service was wonderful. The food was great. I had the shrimp and grits and it was very good. Even though it said small plates, it was enough for a dinner. My daughter had the filet. It was a bit over cooked for medium rare was very good. The old bay wings are a must try. The noise level was a bit high as it is very open. The views over the bay are amazing. I will be back.

Love the view, atmosphere and service. The food however is mediocre compared to the high price. Was disappointed in the amount and taste, again the cost😱🙁The service, waitress and hostess were very welcoming and very expedient. Thank you, I hope this helps, you can’t fix what you don’t know.

We love the restaurant’s setting and decor.
Sat next to the fireplace.
Service was friendly.
Nice wine list.
We grazed, with two large salads, white sausage pizza, and fried calamari. More than we could finish.
Everything was tasty.

Another picture perfect meal. Fourth time there and we just love this place. Bridges is a 45 minute drive but is well worth the travel time. Sam was our server and we all enjoyed his professionalism and personally.
Can’t wait to return soon.

This was our first time dining at Bridges. It was recommended by my cousin who lives on Kent Island. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The service was perfect. The food was delicious and healthy. The drinks were great and the views were priceless. We will be making regular trips back to eat here again and again.

We enjoyed Bridges. We went to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. The bread and oil dip was delicious. The MD crab soup was good but not the best I have ever had. The calamari was good too (nothing fancy). I had the crab stuffed shrimp over mushroom risotto and green beans, it was pretty tasty and my husband had a meat lovers pizza. It was good but salty in my opinion and I could not eat more than one small slice but he liked it. Overall, I would go back, especially in the warmer months for the outdoor seating. Great views!

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.

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!
