We thoroughly enjoyed are time at the restaurant. The staff was polite, friendly and professional in addressing our needs. The gift shop had a good assortments of collectables dedicated to the Smith Island adventure. The restaurant menu is limited; however, the soups and choice of seafood is some of the best in the state. We had a sampling of items... More

Thank you for a great lunch as we stepped off the ferry. Everything was delicious. Customer service was excellent. Smith Island cake was loved by all. Hand dipped ice cream was great to eat on the way back to Crisfield.

Had a group of 15 on a weekend photography workshop. Reservations were made ahead of time. Tables were pushed together so we could eat as a group. We all had a one page printed menu with only 5 high priced selections, while the other diners appeared to have full menus. Some of us had to go with just the one... More

We had lunch here after our cruise over from Point Lookout. We ate inside and enjoyed our lunch. We had our stroller with us and it wasn't a problem. We had the crab cake sandwich, Maryland crab soup and clam strips. Everything was very good, especially the Cole slaw. We probably won't be back in area anytime soon, but if... More

The Bayside Inn has the best dinners on the island. The food is great and the service is greater. Never met a more friendlier bunch of people.

We could have been captive customers paying only for a view and mediocre food...so we were pleasantly surprised when the Maryland crab soup was wonderful, little to no filling on the nice sized crab cakes, and fried jumbo shrimp was loved by all. We weren't expecting much since it's a very small and less populated island. the waitstaff seemed to... More

We came to the Bayside Inn mainly because that is where the cruise ship from Point Lookout State Park docked, but we had no regrets eating there. The service was very good and the food was as well.
