Lively local place

My husband and I had lunch here on Sunday. The Packers were playing and it was packed with their supporters. The food was quite good. My husband had the chili and I had the grilled cheese. This is not the place to go for a quiet meal but if lively and local is what you want then this is your... read more

Best chili ever. Smilin Bob's barroom chili is the bomb. Worth the wait for a table or a spot at the bar, belly up and have a cold one with a bowl of chili with the works.

This was our first dinner stop on the evening of our arrival in town. We nearly couldn't find a seat it was so busy. Service was a little slow at the beginning, but the food was absolutely excellent and worth the brief wait. I highly recommend the Reuben sandwich, and the burgers were also great! This was our most reasonably... More

Bayside Tavern has to be the best bar and grill in Door County. Boy is it loud, crowded and fun! Our appetizers were great and the different craft beers were cold! Obviously it's where the true locals go to drink and raise a little hell. It's causal with a good wait staff and bar tenders. Everyone just seems to enjoy... More

This place was PACKED - but so much fun. Door County is pretty laid back, and there are few choices for late nights, but this was the perfect spot. It was loud, friendly, the food was greasy, the drinks were heavy on the pour and service took FOREVER, but its a vacation...so who really has anywhere else to be? :)

BEST FOOD at GREAT Prices! Perch is the best I have EVER eaten! This is a very casual place with a wide variety of food on the menu. Everyone in our group (picky eaters - even!) loved going here and we made a second meal which was fantastic!

My husband and I return to Bayside each year. We are now going on our 22nd year in Door and at Bayside. They have friendly staff, fun and relaxing setting with great food. The cheese, onion and garlic pizza is one of our faves. The burgers are good, too. The prices are reasonable for the tourist town. Bayside has my... More

The food was decent. However the waitress was terrible. It took 25 min to get out bill and the only reason why we got that was because we were right in her face. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We have visited the Bayside Tavern before but only had burgers or sandwiches (which are excellent). This time we tried the pizza. It was a very happy surprise. The crust was fairly thin and very crispy. The toppings were ample and the price was reasonable. The wait staff were friendly and the food was served fast. For a Thursday, we... More
