Fodd was great ..
Very busy ( New Year's Eve)
Over all very good
Having been dining at this restaurant for years... and have seen many changes. One thing for sure the menu has always been creative and new with well-prepared and tasty offerings. The biggest change in recent years is the attention to detail by service staff; this appears to have become more casual and relaxed - sometimes server is not always available.
We went with friends on Sunday, Dec. 18, and had a wonderful dinner. The dinner side of the restaurant was closed so we were seated in the bar side which was pretty empty but the staff was upbeat and a lot of fun. Had the smaller appetite 6 oz steak and frits (substituted cauliflower mash) and it was outstanding. My friend who is allergic to onions and garlic had hers prepared to order and loved it. The guys had hamburgers done just the way they like them. All in all is was a terrific evening and the cook that evening was excellent. From start to finish we felt the staff were in a holiday mood and they gave us a thoroughly enjoyable evening that we hope to enjoy again soon.
Very nice time. The brunch food was average but atmosphere was festive and service was very good! A nice place to go with family over the holidays and not too busy and crowded!
The restaurant was fairly empty which made it quiet. The fodd was not as good as we've come to expect from Baywood. It may have been an off night.
Our waiter from wonderful - Jonathan. He was attentive to us without being intrusive. We all enjoyed our food and one person at our table ordered the seafood special and I think the three of us who ordered other items were pleased with our orders but might have been a bit sorry they had ordered the seafood special.
Three friends and I had a wonderful dinner and evening dining at Baywood. The music of saxophonist Everett was amazing and we had great service from our waiter Dave. Couldn't have been a more lovely evening. And as always, the fall decorations were incredible.
This restaurant was a nice surprise for us. The staff are all extremely friendly and the service is excellent. We were kept waiting a few times for first courses and then for entrees but the server always checked back, apologized for the delay and explained the wait (took longer to cook the thick cut filet). The food was very good from an heirloom beet salad to cream of crab soup to a (perfectly cooked) filet and an exceptional quail special. Great wine list and great desserts.
I went with my wife for my birthday and I had the salmon which was tasty and cooked perfectly. My wife enjoyed her meal too. Our waiter was very nice and informative. We had the whole dining room to ourselves.
Had dinner at the Baywood Clubhouse Restaurant f or a birthday dinner for two. We chose to sit in the Lounge for the live entertainment that evening. since it was 'Off-Season' seating was not an issue, though reservations were made in advance. We had ordered 2 appetizers , dinner and ordered a bottle of wine. the appetizers were very good (crab dip was especially good) and dinner( lamb and steak) was very good as well. the ambiance was nice in the lounge area and even with the live entertainment the noise level didn't prevent us from having a conversation. The restaurant at the Baywood Clubhouse is worth a try.
The most delicious rack of lamb we gave ever eaten. Please put it on the menu all the time!
Lobster special was great and Sandy (aka Barbara) was a wonderful server who didn't rush us, even though we were her last table. We'll be back!
We enjoyed Sunday brunch. Everyone's meal was very good and reasonably priced. My 'steak and eggs' was outstanding.
The waiter provided Great service, we were given a perfect table & atmosphere and the delicious food was just impeccable.
We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. My wife onion soup is to die as they soak the onions in Guinness. They have great specials for your special days. It has a great view of the golf course.
incredible views/gardens and landscaping, great outdoor dining but very smart inside as well.
I enjoyed our dinner so much and so did my guest. Dave our waiter was wonderful. Nice personalitie and made us feel at home. He suggested a wonderful wine with my dinner since the white zinfandel wasn't available. Prices were amazing. We had the special lobster and steak. I will always bring my guest here each time they visit. Was here a few months ago and also enjoyed it with my sister and father. Thank you for everything. P.S. The hostess and I talked like we knew each other for years and also the couple out front with the valet parking. So we enjoyed your restaurant right from the start of the evening at the entrance 😊.

I'm new to Sussex County, from NY. Bay wood came highly recommended by many, including one of my guests that evening, who dines there often. The crab soup was barely room temperature, actually cold in spots. the scallops were well prepared but placed on a barely noticeable bed of mashed cauliflower...as though the kitchen ran out. My guest's whole lobster was good, BUT she was never offered a dish for the shells, was never offered a fingertip towel, and NO ONE ever came over to see if we needed anything or if we were satisfied...all of which one expects even in the local diner, and certainly at a 5 star restaurant. When we arrived, we asked if we could have 2 bills. Our server said that was not a problem. When we received ONE bill and then asked that it be split. A young lady, inappropriately dressed, (far too causal for the status of the restaurant), approached the table with a very loud and snippy voice, stating that the restaurant policy was not to split bills. We were a table of retired professional women: a high level government executive, an attorney, and a medical professional. We could do the math. The fact of not splitting the bill wasn't an issue. It was the demeaning and snippy tone of this young lady, who we later learned was a manager. We could only presume she must be a relative, as it is difficult to believe a restaurant of your caliber would hire someone to deal with customers who had such a screeching voice, such a demeaning tone, and who dressed so inappropriately. Yes, she is young, but she needs a great deal of training before she should be allowed to deal with the public. It was my first dining experience at Baywood. But, probably my last. I entertain many people as a retired attorney, still rainmaking. I will not risk embarrassing myself or my guests with such an experience. Baywood received this critique but, I suspect the person who responded to my critique was, in fact, the young lady who was most offensive.
Our server, Cindy, was very engaging. She represented the menu choices very well. Entrees were well presented and all enjoyed. 1/2 price wine Friday was awesome! Our party of five will return!!
I made a reservation for 5 people at 6:45 pm. It was getting cool and breezy. Upon arrival the hostess asked us to wait a minute ,she would be with us soon. I heard her speak to another woman mentioning a party of 18. A few minutes later they told our group of five women that they were seating is outside on the porch. We were hesitant but followed our hostess. No table was ready and then 18 golfers were being set up at two tables right next to us. This seems a poor way of arranging parties. It became more breezy so we asked our server if we could move around the corner to an area blocked from the wind. Our server Jonathan was great but the noise from the golfers near us made conversation challenging. Think more thought should have been done when placing different groups.
