Bridges Restaurant - MD Ratings and Reviews
Luckily we arrived before dark so we could see the beautiful view! We had a nice table by the window. The menu has a wide variety of selections. I had the scallops and risotto small plate and it was delicious! Three scallops atop a portion that was completely manageable (it looked like I licked the plate!). My daughter ordered the fish and chips. I believe it was also on the small plate menu, but it was huge - and she was very happy! My mother was the only one not completely happy. She is a vegetarian and did not have many options. Our server, Shannon was wonderful. Overall, a great experience!
Every time we go to Kent Island we go to Bridges! We love it. There is always something to pick from the menu
That suits your needs! Last night we were tired from
Our drive and wanted light fare but since we were heading north I wanted to make sure I had my last
Fix of crab. I had a delicious vegetable crab soup
With a spinach salad & crab cake. It was delicious.
My husband had a bruschetta & pesto appetizer with
A Caesar salad & chicken. We were both more then pleased! Bridges is very relaxed with a welcoming staff and a beautiful view . The sunset was superb last night!!
We had a wonderful finale to a beautiful vacation.
We had such a good time and good food. We made a reservation earlier in the day and were given a wonderful table by the window. So often I make reservations at a restaurant and they save the worst table for me! Why bother making a reservation if you are going to just give me the worst table.....especially when other tables are available. Bridges really showed us a good time. Looking forward to going again.
Went here about 8 PM on a Saturday night in late January, and my first impression was LOUD! There was a live band that kept the bar patrons on their feet. We were staying next door at the Hilton Garden Inn, so had no idea what to expect. We wanted something fairly light, and after ordering drinks, I ended up with a half-dozen oysters, and my husband with a Pig Pen pizza. Both were fine, we were happy and had plenty to eat. For such a tiny island, it sure was a popular place for locals, surely a good sign! Would go again if staying in the area.
We had a delicious Friday night dinner, loved the happy hour specials. The wait staff was a bit aggressive, so we felt rushed. Please know there is a fine line between being attentive and rushing customers. Please be more respectful of not interrupting patrons when they are engaged in conversation, and please let us complete our appetizers before binging out the next course.
We really enjoyed our meal and our time at Bridges. We will definitely return.
The only thing that could have been better is that we probably sat for at least 15 minutes before a waitress came to our table. In fact, we got up to seek out who our waitress was. Once that was determined, our service was very good and the food was delicious.
Return visit that was nothing less than exceptional! Every excellent restaurant manager knows that the perception of the value and pleasure of an evening out meal, will be made or broken by the server! Our server, C.C., was fantastic. Though she had at least 5 other tables she was handling, she has the ability to make each table feel like that is the only table she is working! Kudos to C.C.!!
The kitchen did an excellent job with the apps and meals. three Filet dinners were ordered and one Crab Cake dinner. All were more than pleased with the food, including the calamari and crab dip appetizers, and the desserts (chunky Chewy Blonde and Banana Bread Pudding). Drinks were prepared exactly as requested, and everything is reasonably priced given the location, ambiance and the quality of the meal. We have never been disappointed here.
Nice job by all.
what makes this place special is that it is surrounded by water on 2 sides with great bay views. The restaurant itself is by far the best waterfront dining on Kent Island with a modern décor, large fireplace, open kitchen, indoor/outdoor/porch seating and a separate bar. Friendly staff, clean and a nice menu - like a lot of places the service is friendly but slow and inattentive when it is busy, however you come to relax and enjoy the water views!
The restaurant has great views and lots of space. The crab cakes were incredible! They were large chunks of lump crab loosely held together with delicious sauce. The fish tacos had a large piece of blackened fish with fresh slaw. The lunch came with very generous portions of salad. Very excellent!
We have been to Bridges for happy hour several times, and have always enjoyed being there. The restaurant is on the water at Kent Narrows, and is a great place to sit outside and enjoy the view. Having purchased a gift card about a year ago, three of us decided to use it for dinner the night before Thanksgiving. Being at Bridges at night when the sun is down does not have the same ambiance as being there during daylight. We ordered one calamari appetizer to share. It was very good, but a small portion for the price. Our entrees were good, not great. Two of us swordfish, one had scallops with risotto. Our server, John, was excellent, accommodating, friendly and very efficient. The nosie level inside is really high, and is a detriment to the dining experience. Overall, Bridges is better during happy hour sitting outside, but is still a nice place for dinner in the winter.
Followed Chef David Clark here when he closed his restaurant and was part of the opening of Bridges. He did wonderful things at The Bridges but sadly he has moved on to open another restaurant. However, his Sous Chef, Nathan has carried on and introduced some of his own wonderful dishes. Mike Moon, the Manager has been here for years and has done a terrific job in keeping the place running like a top. Great food, people and view (sun sets and boat watching are great). Outside dining under the roofed "pergola" off the main dining room or on the patio are fantastic (you can bring fido - on the patio). My ONLY disappointments are the noise level makes it difficult to carry on a conversation at high traffic times and the discontinuing of the fire in the fireplace. Not sufficient disappointments to keep me from frequently returning - with or without friends in tow.
Nice dinner, was staying at nearby hotel. Vegie Crab soup was delicious. Ordered the small plate scallop and roasted mushroom risotto, the scallops were fine but could not taste the mushrooms in the risotto at all. Service was very good. Will likely return.
Bridges is a family and neighborhood favorite - we are there once a month. Great food, great views of Eastern Bay and Kent Narrows, nice outside and inside seating, great staff and service. The bar scene is well attended and comfortably separate from the dining areas.
The restaraunt is nice and the food is good however reserving a table ahead of time was not very time saving. I made a reservation a few days ahead of time and when we arrived our table was not ready and we had to wait 15 minutes or more. I called to let them know we were running a little late and pushed our reservation back a little but our table still was not ready. This was an inconvenience as we expected a table to be ready when we arrived. They did apologize for the wait and once we were seated things were great. Overall nice service and good food.
A delicious experience for my birthday. We had a wonderful table to enjoy the sunset and the service was excellent! Missy the manager does an amazing job with her crew to keep things moving efficiently and successful. The cooking staff were phenomenal and It's great to have the open concept kitchen!
A great dining experience on Maryland's Eastern Shore/Kent Narrows. Appetizers chosen this evening were Crab Dip and Calamari. Both were thoroughly enjoyed and reasonably priced. The calamari is the best in the region, clearly cooked just right, and very tender! Entree's....two chose the filet mignon, one yellow fin tuna w/ colossal shrimp and on going with the crab cakes. The filets were cooked precisely as ordered, the yellow fin and shrimp were outstanding, and the crab cakes are the best that can be had, ample jumbo lump crab meat, not overly seasoned, and no "binder or mix" detected. Two desserts were chosen, as the couples only had enough room for sharing, crème brulee for one couple, and pineapple upside down cake with vanilla ice cream topped with fresh whipped cream and a blackstrap rum caramel topping for the other couple. Bridges truly qualifies as a "DESTINATION RESTAURANT" worth traveling the extra miles to enjoy what may be one of the best experiences you will have ever had a restaurant! And if you want fantastic service.....as if "C.C." is on and can she be your server!
We have been coming to Bridges for the past few years. Recently we've requested Ci-Ci as our
server on a regular basis and have a great experience every time! She does an excellent job anticipating our needs. You wont be disappointed with the food, music or the view...this is the PERFECT place and so worth the ride!
We were looking for a restaurant with a view on the way home from a wedding on the eastern shore and we found this on open table and we were very impressed. We sat on the deck and watched the boats come and go. We had a wonderful lunch with gazpacho and a salad. It was a great way to spend a leisurely lunch!
Went to Bridges Restaurant on Labor Day for lunch with my parents and girlfriend. It was a gorgeous day outside so we sat on the patio. The waiter (Logan) was very nice and helped us pick out our lunches as it was our first time there. The food was all presented very well and the flavors and recipes were all very good. Overall the experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend Bridges to anyone that is looking for an upscale casual restaurant with great food and magnificent views of the water.
Food was not worth the price paid. Rockfish was dry and so were the grits that came with it.
Al had the salmon and said it was not good. We live on the Eastern Shore and will not be
frequenting your restaurant. There are better values in other establishments.
Bridges was our favorite restaurant for the past few years, but lately there has been a noticeable decline in the quality of service (table not cleared, no cream brought to the table with coffee/tea, inattentive, sloppy service, etc). Unfortunately, Bridges is no longer our "go to" place on the Eastern Shore. The setting is fabulous, so hopefully Bridges can turn it around.
