I love the food and drinks at Bayside. The patio is nice and the view is fantastic. It's a fun place for meeting friends. Can't go wrong here.

Love the location of this place. Great place to take kids for outdoor eating as it over looks the lake. Just took my grandchildren there and they loved it.

That about sums up this place. Just very nice all the way around. Good food and nice view of the lake. Great for a relaxing lunch on a lazy summer afternoon.
