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.

The four of us each got different items and all were good. We only had soup or salad and a starter which is plenty for us. We sat on the open air porch at 530 and it was crowded and very noisy. It was hard to have a conversation. The view over the bay is lovely. Pre Covid this was a favorite of ours but I don’t remember it being so noisy.

You had a full house the evening we visited. We were seated quickly enough and our dinners were excellent. You don’t receive five stars across the board from me exclusively because our waiter showed no respect for us. He wore a cloth mask that seemed not to have been washed, but particularly it did not cover his nose. I complained to him and said his nostrils were visible. He scowled at me and gave what I will call perfunctory service after that. I noticed another waiter had a clear hard plastic mask that stood away from his face and served no purpose. We do have a Covid epidemic and I am surprised that you do not maintain a mask standard among your staff. I will see you again when the coronavirus has gone away.

Asked for outside seating but changed our mind because of hot weather. No problem. Wonderful seat by a window
Waitress was friendly and helpful without being overbearing.
Sea bass, snapper and crispy Mahi- everyone was happy with their selection.

We have been dining at this restaurant since 2006 and spent "thousands" of dollars for meals and special events. Not once have we ever been offered a single free entree, dessert, or even a simple cup of coffee.

We have eaten at Bayside many, many times in the past 15 years-lunches and dinner. Today was a huge disappointment. Service was not the best-if I have to ask for a water refill 2-3 times, you aren’t doing your job. She described the specials, but I had to ask the prices of the specials. The bus person put a tray directly behind our friend and cleaned off 2 tables. It was loud, very loud. Slammed plates on top of each other and cleaned the plates before stacking. It was loud and disgusting.

I got the sirloin steak salad special. I cut off 7 pieces of fat, the steak was tough and not cooked very well. The lettuce was not the quality I expect from Bayside. I showed our server the pile of fat and she said, the ends are fatty. Didn’t apologize, nothing.

All in all, disappointed. First time since Covid we had been to Bayside and took friends who had never been.

I had family in town and over the Easter break they had their Anniversary. I was lucky to get them a reservation at Bayside and I was so happy to hear from them that they had a wonderful meal and had a wonderful table over looking the bay. I dine at Bayside often and have never had a bad meal or experience.

Such a disappointed. We had a 6:30 reservation and were told if we wanted outside would be 20-25 minutes more. Wound up being 40 minutes more. Waitress was rushed and just scattered. Food was pricey and average. Calamari weak. Lobster bites deep fried with 6-8 bites for 20 plus dollars. Pasta with shrimp in cream tomato sauce had no cream. Dry and cold. Grilled grouper over done with terrible risotto. So not worth the cost. Happy to pay 35-45 for an entree but get it together. Service and food does not warrant it. Felt like a tourist trap.

Superb venue with decent food and excellent staff but pricey....all entrees seemed to have same sides of mashed potatoes and beans...could be a little more creative! The $15 drinks are high even for Naples. One drink, an average $60 bottle of wine, one app, two salads and two entrees with a nice tip was $270.....something out of my league unless special occasion!!

Lobster Bisque had no hint of either taste or contents of lobster. Looked and tasted like tomato soup. Other dishes were of little taste. Appeared hurried in preparation. The interior of restaurant is quite dated and in need of sprucing up.

Service was great. Portions reasonable - not huge. But sat at a table where it was next to a serving station and the clean up of tables was messy.

Outstanding meal and evening at Bayside! We were seated outside under the tarp which was great!! The lobster bites and coconut shrimp were outstanding!! Hubby had blackened snapper and I had miso sea bass. Both very good and we loved the stir fry veggies! Staff was very attentive and very nice and flexible with substitutes!
