Like the name says this is a tavern, so why so expensive like a fine dining supper club? I guess I would chalk it up to a highly trafficked tourist destination in Door County. I wonder if they cut the menu prices in the off season for locals. I ordered the Polka King Porter which is one of a dozen... More

Stopped at Bayside for lunch with some friends and our families, I asked about their Bloody Mary, she told me they were rated Door County's best-I was excited for that! We ordered a basket of fried goodies as an appetizer. They were just ok. When the Bloody Mary came I was soooo disappointed-a big celery and 2 olives and no... More

I don't know how this place was voted as having the "Best Burger in Fish Creek." My wife and I both ordered bacon cheeseburgers when we visited, "Medium" and "Medium Rare", and they both came out very well done. And the bacon on mine was beyond crisp, and was actually burned. And the burgers were served on those cheap white... More

I thought that this would have been a good place to eat dinner. But the service was so terrible. Our waiter forgot many things in took forever when it wasn't even crowded. The food came out separately and was not even very good. I will not recommend this place.

A last minute choice before attending a concert was a poor one. First we were seated at a cramped booth in the back but we quickly found another table on our own. A request for a gluten free pizza with half without cheese did not seem to be a difficult request, as we have requested half cheese many other times... More

Bayside is our favorite place to go in Fish Creek. We love there food, there ribeye steak is excellent, along with there walleye cheeks as appetizers. Excellent staff. We usually go to Door County about 10 times a year, throughout the year, and love hanging out at the Bayside.

The Bayside Tavern is a great spot on your Door County trip. It's open year round and is a favorite of tourists and the locals alike. The tavern is a family business and son "Bob" is back and working hard. Bayside has a great casual menu with something for everyone. Sports fans, it's a great rainy day get away!
