My first time at this restaurant. The food was excellent from the appetizers to the desserts. Considering this is a bayside, boat drive up restaurant, I was impressed with the level of presentation and most importantly the taste of the food. While many of these...More

We hadn't been to this restaurant under its current name. We remembered the old Bayshores and had fond memories of past years. The food at lunch was surprisingly good. The sushi tacos are spectacular and I would go back for them alone. My wife enjoyed...More

Baia is very dissapointing. I would not recommend going there especially if you are new in town. It will give you a bad taste of the shore.. there is much better spots to eat and have fun. Checkout Charlies, Caroline's or Anchorage instead.

Managed to get on the outside deck, brilliant food with live music, Bob Marley's "One Love" playing as the sun went down, its what memories are made of, great portions at a good price, it's what holidays are all about.

Ample seating in and outside. Great view of the bay and accessible via boat. Wide selection of Italian-style seafood, average portions, $$$-$$$$. Tried the sushi tuna taco ($13), clam "chowda ($6), and macadamia crusted snapper ($30). Service was average.
