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 2-4:30p.m. the Upper Deck Bar offers a lighter, late lunch menu.

We were outside on the deck. It was very cold and noisy, and people at the bar were allowed to stand around and gabe. There were also a number of people delivering the food and many times this caused a delay. We enjoyed the duck, but the atmosphere ruined our vsiit.

Check in was fine.
At our table we were waiting to order a drink for quite a long time. Eventually we caught the eye of a server and she came over. We asked for 2 gin and tonics and she informed us that she was not our server but that she would pass on the request if she saw our server!.

As customers, we don’t care who serves which table - we just wanted to order a drink which proved very difficult and a very slow process.

Eventually our server arrived and while the food was good the service was average.

Beautiful evening, so sitting outside upstairs was ideal. When it got breezy, they rolled down the plastic screens.

We had reservations for 1:30. Our table was not ready so we sat until it was. When it became available, it was given to a couple without reservations. So we waited for the next one. The problem was lack of communication between the two hostesses. The hostess who greeted us was very apologetic and offered us other tables but we wanted one by the window. It was my 80th birthday and I am thrilled to be alive. Therefore, we refused to get upset. Just wish our reservation had been honored over someone without a reservation.

Why did you check yes I would recommend Bayside to a friend?

They even arranged to have the rain stop by the time that we arrived, so we were able to eat outside, "Bayside"!

We look forward to dining at Bayside several times during annual Naples month long stay! The views are the very best, ambience and food top notch. That being said on our last visit we were rushed off the table and the restaurant was not busy as it was close to closing time. We were given a check and the server was apparently in a rush to get out! Disappointing and hoping it’s a one off since in over the 21 years we have been coming we never experienced that before.

We sat inside. There was table of 6 who were crazy loud, banging on the table, laughing and just drunk. Everyone in the room was upset and management did nothing about it. I wouldn’t expect the server to deal with it but the manager could not have missed this behavior. It wrecked what was otherwise a nice night.

This was our first time dining at Bayside Seafood. We asked to be seated outside and a table was ready for us but once we were there we realized we would have a better table With a view inside and asked to switch. The host was very accommodating and we got a table with a great view of the water. The service was amazing all staff was very friendly and knowledgeable! The food was incredible. We started with an appetizer the baked Brie and hands down it was the best baked Brie we’ve had and we are big cheese lovers :)). We then had the Mahi Mahi and the teriyaki salmon and everything was cooked to perfection ! It was so delicious we couldn’t leave anything on the plate :) . We finished off with desert, I had the chocolate cake ( super rich and creamy and a decent size ! ) and my hubby had the creme brûlée ( I am not a fan of it but my hubby enjoyed it !)
All in all amazing experience we will be back next time we are in Naples !

Again, Bayside was everything we have come to expect - quality food, great service, and a wonderful place to dine with family and friends. The crispy grouper sandwich with fries has become a special favorite for lunch. Our server, Ashley, was very professional and efficient. One of the best places in a city with many great choices.

The food was good but a very rude waitress at the reception informed us we (4) didn't have a reservation when we did. She said you're not in the computer so you have no reservation! When we looked over to the computer, there we were. She was extremely rude and just walked away.
This incident would cause me to take pause before ever going there again.

Hostess was rude. We had a reservations but her attitude was that did not mean much. When finally seated food was excellent and nice varied menu. Not a place to go in season given how they treat customer when busy.

The food at Bayside is excellent. Our server was accommodating, punctual and pleasant. The only issue was loud noise coming from a group of 6 across the area.

The menu posted on Open Table is the same as the one at the restaurant. However, the prices are higher in the restaurant. It should be updated to reflect the current prices.
