The atmosphere alone is worth the driving time! The location is gorgeous! Directly next to the busiest drawbridge in the country you get to experience water front dining at its best. The Rockfish is stellar! The laid back atmosphere is what the Eastern Shore is all about!

Had a quick lunch here after a bike ride before heading back to St. Michaels. Nice breeze. and great view. Almost came back for dinner only reason we didn't was to experience somewhere else. I would come back

We have eaten at the Bridge twice since the new owner took over. The service has been very good and friendly. The food is fantastic! Try the steamed mussels with arugula and bleu cheese. It was so good, I wanted to jump in the platter with the mussels! We also enjoyed the crab pretzel, crab dip, calamari, tomato caprese, and stuffed rock fish. I've heard the hamburgers are amazing. Top that off with a great spot on Knapps Narrows watching the bridge go up and down!

We stopped into Characters this weekend for dinner and drinks. The bartenders were engaging and super outgoing, the dock spot with the tiki bar was incredibly fun and the burgers, wings and food hit the spot! Check this spot out next time you are here!

Last Monday, July 22nd, we visited the Characters Bridge Restaurant mainly because of their add in the Star Democarat featuring $1.00 crabs! Having just finish playing golf we were ready for some crabs. The crabs as we expected were very small, but were very good! My wife had a crab cake platter which she said was good, not great... My friend had never had crabs before and did not enjoy the work, mess, for such a small amount of meat. We tried to explain the culture and history of enjoying the effort, but he then ordered an soft shell crab and did not care for that as well. We suggested he ordered a lobster or chicken as he just did not get it.

The service was very slow, and they were not very busy the first hour we were there and had to wait quit a while for the first two dozen crabs we ordered. All in all, with the views, crabs while small were very tasty, they were worth the wait, and the price was fantastic...

We will go back again and suggest if you are willing to work thru the small sizes, it is worth the effort.
