I decided that my strings needed a height adjustment today so I was about to take it into a guitar repair shop to get my guitar "set up", but then I found out that one of the two screws (those allen key ones) on each side of the bridge was all corroded up and there was no grip inside the screw for the allen key to dig into and turn, it would just turn without doing anything.

So my question is that is there a way to take out this screw and replace it or am I left with a guitar that has it's strings stuck in mid air?

Needlenose pliers perhaps?

I had this happen to a saddle allen key screw on a charvel/jackson i owned so I basically cut a slit into the screw head and then used a normal screwdriver to take the screw out...you might need a saw that cuts metal or maybe a knife might do it if its one of those a serrated knives.
