    Love the Bayhouse - great food (Asian Cod dish is DELISH), and if you sit in bar area, you get to see & hear some great live music. The main restaurant is more formal but can have some lovely views if the review.

    They had the best fried green tomato and lobster dish but for some reason they don't have it any more. I hope they bring it back so that I come back.

    The Sunday brunch is out of this world. Like a quick visit to New Orleans. Too many great items to select from; always hard to decide what to get. Best fried oysters in SWFL. Dinner meals are also excellent but it feels like the menu has less range than it used to

    Service at table, food, and ambience are all outstanding in this local favorite restaurant. In fact, my friend and I drove for 1 hour and a half in order to get here. On presenting ourselves at the front desk to claim our reservation, we asked whether we might spend a few minutes at the raw bar before taking our table, as we had done in the past. We were rather tartly informed by the young hostess that this might be a problem inasmuch as we were expected to be out of the restaurant within 2 hours. Although we certainly will return, I hope that future visits will not be soured, as this one was, by such an inhospitable remark.
