Had a wonderful meal between the two of us, though my $35 fillet was disproportionately gristley, but the service, salads, appetizers, desserts, and view made this an above average dinner; we'll definitely be back!

Restaurant is nice enough but with no real originality... Pretty standard. Our waiter let us rot. We spent most of our time wAiting and he never checked in with us. I think we must have been his only table in our section of the restaurant. My seafood dish was way undercooked and slimy. So was my husbands. Huge disappointment!

Just over the Ocean City bridge is located one of the finest restaurants my family has ever had the pleasure of eating at. Although the wait was extremely tiring, the food and ambiance was superb. They have outside eating with entertainment and a bar as well as inside dining room. The entries are included pasta, chicken, veal, steak and of... More

Hit this for a special occasion, while visiting family, who have lived here for 50+ years. This location has always been great, but the current atmosphere is a bummer. Lots of rude vacationers with screaming, ill behaved kids, drinking way too much for their own good, and unsavory characters looking for nitelife. Can take all types on the beach, but... More

The patio was lovely, but the meal was overpriced for mediocre at best food. The, service was terrible, and kitchen/management problems were blamed on the servers. Not worth a visit.

Beautiful restaurant. Waiter, antony, I think, was obnoxious and loud. Food was ok but extremely overpriced. Took a look long time. Had two big flour balls in my clam chowder. For the money...go to Charlie's or the anchorage.

My wife and I went here on a Tuesday night and we asked to sit outside on the deck. We overlooked the water with views of the bridge and boats passing. The dinner... More

I'm so surprised by the less than stellar reviews of this place. We are pretty tough critics, but this place keeps us coming back more than once during our vacation week for the last four years. We enjoyed a pleasant meal on the deck again this year. Service was very friendly (dani), food was fresh and tasty. We found the... More

First, I will say that the food was decent and the waiter was very good. Now, Baia has indoor, outdoor covered, and pie air dining options. We arrived for our 7:00 reservation and had to wait for another 30 minutes to be seated. This is not unheard of, except that as I walked around the bar, I noticed that about... More
