My husband and I went to the location in Port Lavaca for the first time May of 2015! The atmosphere was nice and quite, service was prompt, and the food was great. We had the grilled Salmon, and stuffed Flounder. The sides were good and hot. The only thing that we noticed was the carpet was in need of cleaning... More

Got right in. Ordered good food, fried shrimp, fried catfish, grilled red snapper, good rice, good French fries, good iced tea. Restaurant dated and could use repairs but we r on the coast and everything takes a beating including buildings. The food was good and that's what counts. Good waiter.

Good location - close to Lighthouse Beach, and the food was fine. Nothing special, but, good service and reasonable prices.

Recently had ribeye steak. The steak is usually very good, the baked potato often arrives cold, the cheese won't melt, i've complained in the past but don't want to take the time for another. Unless you like the salad loaded with dressing you have to remember to ask for it on the side. I like their mahi mahi, the menu... More

A group of four of us had dinner at Bayside Seafood. We ordered red snapper, but that is not what we got. Perhaps it was Pacific snapper (rockfish), tilapia, or some other fairly tasteless fish, but it was not red snapper. The atmosphere was that of a converted Chinese restaurant, and the service was average. Based upon the food quality... More

For a Seafood Restaurant on the coast you would expect to a larger menu. A bit disappointed, great dinning if you are looking for shrimp.

We had the Bayside fried platter and the seafood was really good. We had coleslaw for a side and it was straight up mayonnaise. Go for the seafood not the atmosphere or sides.
