My husband and I made reservations and came early to watch sunset. We had a cocktail outside, which was great. I asked for the fans to be turned down because it was breezy, and they were beginning to light the firepits, but that never happened.
We arrived for dinner, extremely slow service, the gentleman at the table next to us told us we needed to request bread, and the waitress told me” it’s not Olive Garden where we just bring you bread. When I told her I was not familiar with Olive Garden, she simply said they are like McDonald’s.
We had 2 managers come over to apologize for the wait, and then we waited again. Finally our food showed up, Pirlau, for my husband and crawfish fettuccine for me. I asked the waitress where the crawfish was in the dish and she said it is ground up really fine so you can’t see it. The next day I got another phone call from a manager apologizing profusely again for the extremely long wait, and he did leave a number to call back, but we were occupied for most of the day.
Not impressed at all, will not recommend to friends who are visiting the area, and won’t be back to another similar property in a long time.

Other than the tables are too close together and neighboring peoples conversations are at your table the experience was good. The food was exceptional as was the view from our table to the bay. They are sanitizing everything which means a lot at this time. The wine list was excellent as well and the desserts looked amazing (we restrained from ordering)
They must thin out the tables but we will go back again!!!

Seated us fast. Food was good. Didn’t quite get my order right but was good none the less. They were adjusting tables beside us for a larger group which got a bit loud.
Hello Anonymous, Thank you for sharing your experience in our Bayside Grill. We wish to apologize for the shortcomings you experienced with the improper order recorded and the larger table. Traditionally we do not have so many large tables on Valentines Day but we did have a few this year. We will work harder in the future to ensure our guests experiences are more exemplary and to the standards they have come to expect.
I was torn between a4 and a 5 for overall. I was a little taken aback at how casual the place was. As this is the Grand Hotel I was kind of expecting a bit classier atmosphere. It wasn’t BAD, don’t get me wrong. But I thought maybe some table linens might be in order. Especially fir Valentine’s Day, which was when we cane here. The service was most excellent and the food was very good. I had shrimp and grits and It had Cajun sausage in it too and was delicious. We ordered the crab dip appetizer and it didn’t disappoint. I also very much enjoyed the large helping of chocolate torte. The prices were very reasonable I thought. So really the only thing I thought was a little off was the atmosphere. Five stars.

We went to Bayside Grill on Thanksgiving day. I rarely review a restaurant on a busy day like Thanksgiving or Mothers Day as they are stressed to their limits. That said, our experience was fantastic even without allowances for the day! We were seated promptly, our waitress Tori was friendly and we did not feel rushed, the food came in a timely fashion, and was hot and tasty. Excellent Job!
Hello LaheySC, Thank you kindly for your gracious review of the Bayside Grill! We have shared with Tori and the team and they are thrilled you had such a wonderful time. We are proud to know you enjoyed yourself and hope to one day serve you again.

Living here we have been staying, dining etc at this property for years. We had dinner here at Bayside Grill just prior to them closing to remodel and thought we would it check out now that everything’s complete. Unfortunately it was just as disappointing as our last visit. The staff is very friendly but the kitchen was extremely slow and once the food arrived my grouper was rubbery and tasted like it had sat for a while before being brought out. My sons was the same, my daughters wrap was fine and my other son had the steak which was ok.
I’m not sure what changed from a management perspective in the past couple years but sadly we won’t dine here again.

Food was acceptable but not outstanding.
Service was spotty, server was sweet but clearly had too many tables and could not give us the attention she wanted too.
It is a very noisy place and not necessarily in a good way. It’s hard to hear the conversation at your table.

I was so very disappointed with the quality of service and food for the price. I knew it might not be great but all 4 of us agreed we hadn’t eaten a worse meal in the whole Fairhope area. Truthfully, I am an easygoing patron but this was beyond me overlooking it because of special event. Hoping Marriott will intervene and up their game. Such a beautiful setting for such less than mediocre food. Will say that the staff was friendly!

Vacay-ate dinner there twice and thoroughly enjoyed food and wine and watching our 6 year old son play putt-putt while we dined. Fed him a room service cheese pizza while we got dressed- almost like a date night!!

Great customer service and delicious food!! We were celebrating a family member's birthday. The food took a while to prepare then was delivered room temperature. They seemed understaffed for a Holiday weekend. When we expressed our concerns, the staff went above and beyond to take care of us. Our food was remade. This time it came out hot and tasted delightful!! The server, managers and chef all came to our table to apologize. Exceptional customer service! Would highly recommend!
