Absolute 100% Perfection! I did a LOT of research about different wedding reception venues, actually flew from DC to Florida to check them all out, and it was obvious that I had to go with Bayside Banquets! Vickie was amazing! I'm a perfectionist, and I had extremely high expectations. And she SURPASSED every single one of them! -All of our... More

This is a very mixed review and is only ranked a 3 due to the excellent Customer Service we experienced to "make up" for the issues we encountered during dinner. The best part was the pretzel rolls served before dinner, and the King Crab (market price) I ordered. The other entree (grilled chicken Alfredo) was very bland and the chicken... More

This place has been around for decades and there aren't many places that can say that. It hasn't changed much in all that time either. The food is good, some things are not great, but good. They do give you sorbet to cleanse your palette before your entree arrives, which kinda catches you off guard in a good way. The... More

Had dinner here our last night while on vacation. We waited for a table overlooking the inter coastal it was a short wait. Food was amazing. So perfect place for dinner reasonable too. Staff was very attentive and nice. Wish we had gone there sooner as we could have gone back.

We were on a bus tour so we didn't select this restaurant but glad the tour guide did. Food was great and was given a small cone of mango sherbet to clear your palette. I have eaten out a lot on trips and was never given a palette clearer. They were able to handle a group of 19 people without... More

Made a reservation for a water view table but upon arrival was told by the host that he recently got a lot of people who came in so they didn't have a water view table for us? I had to ask for a manager who had to explain to the host that if there were reservations you shouldn't give those... More

Our server and hostess were terrific. The food is average at best. My husband got the special (a beef with mashed potato plate) and I got a sandwich with fries that were awful.

Friendly greeting by owner upon arrival. One of first people to arrive for lunch so excellent waterfront seats looking at intercostal-beautiful! They had bread plates-but did not have bread?? Just saltines. Out of oysters which was disappointing. Server was nice but they needed help as he was by himself and they got busy! Husband enjoyed his steak and I enjoyed... More

Very good food, good service and nice views of the water. Seating is available outside and there is weekend entertainment. It is a little pricy, but very good.

Thank Ken W
