We sat for a while until Austin tried to find our server. When he was unsuccessful he took our table. He was amazing - personable, knowledgeable and attentive. He gave us his recommendations when we asked and checked us us multiple times throughout dinner. We enjoyed our experience and hope to be seated in Austin’s section again when we return.

Very nice place. Food was good and well prepared. Service was OK, waiter was very friendly and polite but we had to remind him about the bread and our salads and entrée all came to table at same time? By the time we ate our salad, the dinner plate was cold. It's a nice place, we would go again but they can do a little bit better if they want 5 stars instead of 4

Very expensive for the experience. It’s casual dining, but very high end prices. I know there is a shortage of restaurant workers, but our service was exceptionally slow. We ordered drinks when we sat down and a little later an appetizer. The appetizer came out before the drinks. We ordered a glass of wine and a beer. Food was pretty good, but $46 for 2 crab cakes, green beans and mashed potatoes is a bit much for casual. That being said, the cakes were very good with little filler.

We chose Bridges on a hot evening so we sat inside at a window - much of the view blocked by all the outdoor seating umbrellas, so I would suggest going here on a cooler evening and sitting outside to allow for the best views! Food was great - we had grilled Wahoo with coconut rice (on the specials menu) - it was grilled and lightly seasoned to perfection! We also had the Thai Bowl with Tuna Sushimi and it was phenomenal - tuna melts in your mouth, and the Thai seasonings and sauces were fantastic. Ordered half cream of crab/half Maryland crab soup to start, and it was alright, but not the best we had at the Bay. Overall, great spot for dinner, it was in our top 3 for our vacation!

Cream of crab soup and the crab cakes were delicious and authentic to Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The spinach and arugula salad with salmon was also fantastic. Nice breeze outside despite the high temps. Looking forward to going back!

As regulars to Bridges, we had made reservations a week before for yesterday, Tuesday, at 6 pm. We had a party of five. When we arrived the staff were not ready our group, and had to cobble together two mismatched tables. We had mentioned this was for a “milestone” birthday, and the floor manager, from the onset, had a obvious attitude, towards us. We were a table of respected educators and law enforcement. Finally, and begrudgingly, the floor manger moved us to another small table that hardly fit us. Two of our party were first time visitors to Bridges, and said they “would not be back.” Word of mouth, hurts or helps businesses. Bridges has forgotten to care for its regular customers. :(

Food was great. We’ve been several times and enjoy it there. Guess the only knock would be how slow it takes to get a drink. Waited almost 20 minutes for a bottle of wine that any server should be able to get themselves.

I love the atmosphere, outdoor dining and view, and the service at Bridges. Brings together all the great things of Kent Narrows. Unfortunately, the food was a bit inconsistent on this visit and not as good usual. For example, I ordered the Shrimp and Grits which is usually awesome. This night, it was just fair - shrimp were undercooked, dish did not have sufficient sauce (which makes the dish!), and it wasn't even plated the way it usually is. The other meals were good, soft shell crabs and thai bowl. I want to love this restaurant but for the prices and the level of restaurant they want to be, they need to be more consistent with signature items.

Service was extremely exceptional, view phenomenal and food was great. Hubs had Caesar with Crab cake excellent! Shared the watermelon salad and I had the crab dip both were AMAZING!

This is our second time dining here, and it was 100x better than anticipated (it was last year so all things considered we gave it another chance). Last year it was good .. not outstanding. But the food was Elevated tonight.

The only thing I would have to say .. my second wine glass was disgusting .. there was some kind of crud stuck to it. For this type of establishment, I was a bit taken aback, bartending 101, check your glasses, it reflects on you, the server and the restaurant! If I’m paying for great glass of wine, I don’t want ANYTHING extra! Things happen. I’m sure it was an oversight, and will return soon, three times the charm!

Otherwise, OUR compliments to the chef and waitstaff!!

I've only written a couple of restaurant reviews in my life and we eat out several times a month, so this should say a lot -- I had to take time to write about our experience at Bridges in Grasonville. Everything was literally perfect: Beautiful dinner right by the water. The tables were spaced out nicely, which is particularly comforting during the pandemic. It was the first time I've heard live music at a restaurant that was played at an appropriate volume (I feel I'm always yelling over the music to my husband so he can hear me, but this music was the perfect volume and had a fun yet relaxing style). The food was a 10 out of 10. We got the Firecracker Shrimp app, Stuffed Shrimp and Scallop Risotto for entrees, and the Blondie for dessert. Our waiter and servers were very polite and professional and stopped by our table to check on us at the right frequency. I know we will be coming here often! Thanks for the stellar experience. It's been a long time since we've eaten out and had absolutely zero complaints.
