Where's the wow factor

Very good food. Excellent service. Wonderful atmosphere. Unfortunately very expensive which would have been OK if food had "wow factor". Have had better or equal meals at less cost.

Enjoyed our Father's Day dinner at the Bayard House Restaurant! The history of this restaurant is very interesting! The location of the Bayard House Restaurant, in Chesapeake City, offers wonderful views of the water with small shops to brows.

We stopped by the outside bar for a couple of drinks since it's right next to the ship watch inn. Really convenient and the staff was friendly. Served food right at the bar as well

Our first clue should have been all of the empty tables on a Saturday night. Service was poor. When we ordered, we specifically asked our server to delay our bringing our entrees until we were finished with our appetizers. Well, she did not honor our request. We also had to wait for a long time to get glasses of water... More

Had not been there in two years and was very disappointed. Their once-famous crab cake obviously had been frozen, was "fishy:and tasted like old canned crab cake (in the prime fresh crab season). While it was a delightfully sunny Saturday with lots of people in town, there were very few diners at Bayard. That should have been a clue. It... More

Very good food and our server was really pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable. We highly recommend the crispy oyster appetizer. My wife had crab stuffed Rockfish and I had the crake over a filet and we both thought the food was top notch.

This is a great place to dine near the water. The food is good and the service is friendly. There is a neat outdoor bar with a huge umbrella covering it as well.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! It takes a great deal for me to write a scathing review. Well, this place deserves it. Made reservations well in advance. Told them it was a special occasion - my daughter's graduation. Hoped they'd make her feel special. No mention of it. NOTHING! Waitress was laughing and seemed jovial with another table of elderly folks, but when... More
