Nice experience, but they were out of several wines that were on their menu. The service was excellent.

Had a delightful lunch with friends at Bridges, the food was wonderful, the service was excellent, and with the weather being a beautiful day, the ambience was outstanding. I plan to return and would definitely recommend Bridges to friends.

We had a wonderful night out. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere on the deck is always fun especially at sunset. The only issue was that it took a while to find a parking space.

Our server, Austin Slaughterback, (hopefully I spelled his name correctly) was one of the best servers we have ever had. He was so friendly and accommodating and made us feel like we were royalty. He checked on us regularly but was not a nuisance, and he always had a smile. The food was great but Austin definitely made the experience even more enjoyable with his down-to-earth Eastern Shore personality. People like him are what makes people from the ‘other side’ want to come here. Keep up the good work Austin.

This was our second time having dinner at this restaurant. We enjoy the food and the beautiful views. However, they take “pets welcomed” to another level… I’m a lover of pets but it’s unsanitary to have pets on the table tops where people consume their meals.
A family sitting near us brought their beautiful large dog and a kitten with them for dinner. They placed the kitten on top of the table while they waited on service. DISGUSTING!!!!!!
There were managers and staff nearby who said nothing and seemed to have no problem with a feline on their table tops. Not so sure we will rush to go back anytime soon unfortunately.

Turkey sandwich came with the tomato I specifically asked not to have and without butter, mayo or anything to help the deli turkey!

Very limited menu. Why did they take their best offering (muscles with pesto) off the menu? Crazy.

Nice location on the water. We were there in a Friday night. Inside was extremely loud with lounge music that was very loud. Kind of ruined the dining experience. Waitress was lovely. Crab cake was delicious. Drinks were good. Watermelon salad was basically all very fresh watermelon. We ordered 3. All were somehow prepared with different amounts of the same 4 ingredients. Would stop again if we could sit outside on a cooler day. The chairs were very sticky. Very humid day.

A lovely restaurant in a great location. Shrimp (stuffed) were dry/overcooked with very little crab imperial for $38. Salmon was also dry/overcooked.

Great scenic venue. Disappointed that they had no raw oysters and had run out of cheese at 7pm to make any flatbread pizzas. Poor planning.

Don't let the massive size of the restaurant lead you to make the assumption I did that it couldn't possibly be very good. It is most excellent. The service is over-the-top, friendly and very accommodating. We were not rushed at all by the wait staff. Our server was very cordial and helpful. This was my third time at this restaurant and every single time I was delighted with the whole experience.

We went there for our anniversary. While the food was very good, we were disappointed with the limited menu.

We settled for the single crab cake dinners which were good, but very expensive (understand that crab meat is pricey this year.).
Wonderful atmosphere and it was nice to visit a restaurant that seems to be fully staffed.

The service was great and the food was great. The only thing that concerned me is that we are still in a pandemic and I felt we were the only ones wearing masks in this establishment. I guess they don’t believe we are still in a pandemic? Made me feel weird.

Loved the food. Brought friends who had never been there before. They loved the ambiance, the selections on the menu and the tasty food. Server wasn't the friendliest but nothing that was bad enough to ruin our night just not as friendly as we are used to having.
