Went to dinner a few weeks ago. New owners were very nice and accommodating. The seafood was fresh, the parmansean grouper was excellent! We will definitely return for other entrees that looked fantastic.

Evidently new owners took over 3 weeks ago. They do not appear to know what they are doing. Took almost 2 hours to eat a dinner. We waited to place drink orders, waited to get appetizers (1/2 showed up then we waited for the other half), waited over 40 minutes after appetizers to get our entree's. Nevr got our drink... More

Dined outside on the deck - a very pleasant evening. Shared two appetizers among five which worked out well. Entrées were enjoyed by all. Recommended the Caribbean Jerk combo or the Pistachio Grouper. A little on the pricey side. Great outdoor dining if the weather cooperates.

The drinks are fair. The food rates what I gave it. We went and most people were on the deck overlooking the canal off the bay. That is pleasant. I had scallops that were rubbery and covered with a massive amount of Parmesan cheese to mask how little the scallops were. On big weekends when you can't get a table... More

We do go here occasionally for dinner. Food is spotty. Lite fare stuff generally is decent. Entrees are sometimes disappointing. It is somewhat out of the way, so there is often no wait to be seated. Outside dining is pleasant

We went for dinner. You can either eat inside or outside overlooking the canal. Large menu. We had the ahi wraps and they were very good

We have gone to this restaurant for years, and it is a great meal for a reasonable price. They offer both inside and outside dining with a great menu to choose from. The used to have a wonderful lobster special which isn't there this year, but they had others. Great seafood dishes. Their chicken chesapeake is delicious. Also, great salads... More

This is my second review of Charlie's Bayside restaurant. We were here before at the end of August and had delicious parmesan encrusted grouper. The food was as delicious as last time. We heard that the restaurant is for sale and hope the same delicious food is retained. This restaurant is on our must do list every-time we come to... More
