Bahrs continues to be a regular visit for us. We love the food, ambiance, service and location. But there is one new wrinkle in the last visit.

We have been going to Bahrs for many years. One of it's most recognized items is the biscuits and coleslaw they always give you after you place your order. Now we're told as a cost saving measure and that people aren't eating it they stopped the coleslaw from being served. But, if you want it they can give you it for only an extra $1.25! Seriuosly?

Look, Bahrs is not an inexpensive place. A meal for 2 with drinks, appetizer and main course can easily be over $200. If the concern that people are not eating the coleslaw then ask them if they want it. But to stop serving it and if you do want it then to charge you for it is just a cheap way to get a few dollars. Fortunately our server, who was very good, said he would get us the coleslaw no charge.

Will we stop going? No, but it's just makes a nice night out at a great place look cheap and chintzy.

We arrived early to sit at the bar and have a couple drinks before dinner. Outside bar was packed with beachgoers so we went to the inside bar. Had a couple drinks and realized my draft pint was $8.75. To much for me. Sat for dinner, after over an hour our meals came out. Dinner was overcooked and flavor less. For the price expectations were not met. Will not be going back, sorry!

When we got there we had reservations at 845 and there was no table. Then we sat at the bar bc we were starving the waiter acknowledge us and then took like 20 min to hand us menus and as she handed us the menu she expected us to know what we wanted to drink.. The hostess saw i was uncomfortable and told me I have another table come with me. We went and sure i felt better but jeez my waiter sucked.. She kept making smart remarks and everything just went down hill from there.. the food was horrible calamaris cold my bun less burger that i asked to be put in lettuce just came plain on the plate with a couple of fries.. Have u ever had over cooked lobster tail lol we thats what i got .. A piece of tail that looked like it had been sitting in the grill for the last 4 hours. Never ever am I coming again.. On top of all this the bill was nearly 200 for a over cook 3oz lobster tail and 8oz filet and calamaris and 2 drinks.. horrible

Food was great. Something must have happened with our order because it took a long time. Tables had been seated after us and left before we had our main course. Waitress corrected it with the bill. It was a date so we weren’t in a rush

I love this restaurant, however, last night was a bit chaotic. We waited almost 2 hours for our dinner (our reservations were for 7:30pm). Our server was fantastic, followed up with us, and apologized constantly. The bus boys cleared those table so efficiently after every meal. Everyone from a bus boy to a server would say how are you, etc…..However, whoever was the floor manager in a white polo shirt with the ego of a cheap suit, made it seem like it was our problem we had to wait 2 hours for a meal. We plan on going back, and hoping for a different outcome.

Always a good place to have seafood and enjoy looking at the water. Parking was very difficult and it was very crowded, but, to be expected on a warm summer night.

Pros: Ambience was great, server Donna was great and attentive. Prices were comparable.

Con: Ordered steak medium and comes back well done. Sent back. We get the second steak and comes back rare. Our server takes the steak back for the second time. Third time it was served to us, it was the same piece of steak re-fired, some parts were now well done, some parts medium and some still rare. For the price you pay for a surf and turf, you'd want it cooked the way you want it. We love trying local places. Its our first time here but sadly, we won't be coming back.

We waited about 15 to 20 minutes for our server but he was excellent. The drinks were delicious and the appetizers were excellent. One of our entrees the Seafood Sampler did not arrive until 10 to 15 minutes after we were served our main courses. The manager did stop by to ask us if we were missing an entre. The food was delicious and we are looking forward to our next visit.

I dont even know what to say. There was nothing good about this place. The service was terrible the food was horrible. The worst part was the value. Spent over 400 dollars for what seemed like mostly previously frozen seafood... seafood platter was mostly frozen fried clams 3 shrimp a few small scallops and a "fillet" of cod that was maybe 3"x2" They sides were undersized and overpriced as well (not to mention didnt cold and didnt taste well )Dont recommend and will never return. Had hopes for it considering its been there since the early 1900s.
