There are three ways to enjoy the Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, one of Naples most beloved waterfront restaurants for locals and visitors alike. The Café, on the sidewalk level, has the wonderful, bustling ambience of a big city neighborhood café. The Café menu offers sandwiches, salads and light entrees through the late afternoon and evening. The Grill, accepting reservations, is upstairs and overlooks the Venetian Bay -- one of Naples best waterfront dining views. The Grill specializes in creative and superbly prepared seafood, meats, and pasta dishes. The Grill menu is also served on the Upper Deck Bar and Covered Patio, an award winning outdoor cocktail and dining spot that overlooks Venetian Bay and provides spectacular hues of the setting sun. Between 2-5 p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.

The food was excellent the service was OK our server really didn’t have much of a personality or any recommendations and even after we told him it was our anniversary when leaving and if he knew a good place to go he said you can try Harolds and still never even wished us a happy anniversary so not the restaurants fault just the waiters I would definitely go back again and if I was given the same waiter I would be asking for a different table with a different waiter. Being a previous restaurant owner I feel that I wouldn’t hold the food against the waiter the food was amazing ..

It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. The restaurant sits right on the beautiful day of Naples. Our server was very attentive and especially helpful with selecting our meals. And most of all, the food was excellent. The short were cooked to the point of perfection. It melted in your mouth.

First visit. Seated outside under fans; afforded us great ambiance despite June heat. Food was tasty, esp the Coconut Shrimp. Housemade Clam Chowder & Seafood Shrimp Salad was also tasty. Reuben was disappointing, as was a Grilled Chicken Salad. Wish we could remember our fabulous male waiter’s name. He is an asset! Gave him kudos to mgmt before we departed.

Hostess at ground floor kept talking with other employee. Not too attentive. Their bathroom was mess, paper towel on the floor, just not clean. Too bad it’s a great location and could be a nice restaurant. Need little employee training,

The fish dishes were very good; the pasta dish with sausage left a lot to be desired. Pasta was mush.

Need more choices in the dining room since the menu is seafood driven

Wine selection had no Italian red wine. At least I didn’t see any by the glass. A nice glass of a super Tuscan would have been nice🍷🍷🍷

Probable would not go back; too many other good restaurants to try. 👎

Beautiful waterfront spots with a casual atmosphere. Service is good. Food is uncreative and underwhelming, especially for the price. There are many places with better food at lower prices but not many with the view.

The place is nice. Great view. Unfortunately I can not say the same about food. We (party of 8) went to celebrate Mother’s Day, it is supposed to be a seafood restaurant but the options are very limited. 6 of us ordered fish and I wast not really fresh. Vegetables and sides were ok though. Disappointing.

They were VERY busy for Mother's Day. But they were out of what I wanted, and the menu was mostly brunch food or sandwiches. My crunchy grouper sandwich was fine.....but not great. However my gazpacho was fabulous. The view is lovely, so that was worth while. I guess that I expected too much.

Have eaten here with friends twice recently. Both times the food was excellent and the service was adequate. When I made the reservation I requested a specific area, but when we arrived there were no tables in that area available. Both times we were there we had to wait a significant amount of time after being seated for our server to come. That said, the food is definitely very good.
