We love to return here for dinner, particularly around sunset — a great marina-side location with a wonderful view. It’s an incredibly pleasant and relaxing place to eat. It’s causal and comfortable; not an ounce of pretension. There’s nice seating inside and out (with patio...More

This was a great local hangout off the highway a ways but worth the spot. It is on the bay near boats and dock. It is right near the water. We sat at a great outside table for two overlooking the dock and walkway. Beautiful...More

My sister, brother-in-law and I had the pleasure of eating at the Bayside Cafe. We each ordered a fish lunch. Our food was done to perfection. The red wine excellent. Service spectacular.

With indoor and outdoor seating, this "down home" atmosphere brings on the most delicious food - either burgers or seafood - daily specials and fish tacos are the best! Also provide a delicious ice cream cake if it's your birthday - always my birthday place...More

A local travel publication recommended this place for fish and chips. It's a little out of the way, which is good because I think they would be even more crowded than they can handle. My husband said their fish and chips was the best he's...More

Bayside Cafe is nestled in the beautiful State Park Marina across from the entrance to the State Park Campground on lower State Park Road. The views of the back bay are astounding and unique.The food is very fresh with all homemade items including soups, salad dressing, sauces and desserts. You will not be disappointed by the friendly service and wide range of food items offered. A dog friendly outdoor patio is also a plus for our animal lovers.Oh, and by the way, we are NOT open for breakfast as has been stated by trip adviser.....sorry.Open every day for lunch starting at 11:00am and including service of dinners on Thursday through Sunday.See you there.
