Californian
Baja Haus brings a laid-back, California beach-side, and endless summer vibe to Wayzata. We’re a unique, modern, fresh and healthy restaurant – Owner Billy already has an established reputation among locals for his fresh and healthy brands. (sushi fix & bibuta)

We also promise that our food is always fresh (we don’t even own a freezer/ microwave) and we strive to bring the healthiest options to you.

But possibly the best reason to visit Baja Haus is for its party-like atmosphere, large bar area, and a few of Wayzata’s most well-known drink masters, Josh Friedt (Owner) and Troy Vasquez. The duo have crafted a cocktail program unlike any other. The tequila and mezcal-centric cocktails provide a warm-weather backdrop for a Bad Hombre with habanero and serrano infused mezcal; or a Sexy Mongolian with ginger liquor, fresh lime, ginger beer, and more mezcal.

    First time here and it was during Happy hour. Very busy place so glad that we made reservations. Waited only short time after our reservation to be seated. Food was just awesome. Chips and salsa were great. The Salmon was simply superb with great flavors on every part of the dish. Will come back just for that dish. Service was spotty. Waited a bit for initial approach and then meal came out about 2 minutes after chips and salsa, indicating they were put in at the same time. Did have one check in while eating, which was good. Then server disappeared rest of the evening. Had to flag someone down to get the check. Not good at all.

    We always have a really really nice experience here and tonight was no exception. We sat in the Bar area and Tami took wonderful care of us. The “Bad Hombre” cocktail is one of my favorites and I had been craving one. The food which is consistently outstanding was tonight as well. The Birria Tacos were so so good. Easy parking and lovely festive community atmosphere. So happy this small business is so fantastic!

    Baja Haus is usually my go to spot for a night out. I went there for my birthday and it was perfect! Everyone was super nice and they even give you desert on the house ☺️ 10/10 would highly recommend for dinner and especially Happy Hour. My only qualm with them is that I Wish it was open on Sundays but that’s pretty much it
