Always have a great time there with friendly wait staff, yummy food, a fabulous juke box, and reasonably-priced drinks. The Bayside is always a fun place to see old friends and make new ones. Try the Bayside Coffee. Mmmmm. Let them know if you're celebrating something. They are very sweet.

Great Bar/Tavern in Fish Creek Door County. Great food especially the Bayside Burger and the MJ Sandwich and Smil'n Bob's Chili. Summer entertainment from local bands. Family owned for 30 years. If in Fish Creek a good stop for the afternoon break.

We stopped in for a drink while driving around Door County. The Bloody Mary's were huge and drinks reasonable. The bartender was very nice, informative and sweet. She talked with us for quite awhile. We did not eat here as we had already made dinner reservations in Sister Bay. The next time we visit we will stop in for a... More

We stopped here since we were waiting to pick up some art at a specific time. Staff were very friendly. We ordered cups of bacon scallop soup and some jalapeno poppers. The soup was delicious. Would visit again!

Nice little bar. There wasn't a lot that stood out, but the group I was with enjoyed the atmosphere, everyone in the bar area was very friendly, other customers included. I will say that they have really great pizza! We had no idea when we went into the bar, but by the time we left we were making plans to... More

If you are looking for a traditional Friday night fish fry, this is one of the locals favorites. Friendly service, delicious food, and a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a find dinner or lunch.

This is way beyond "pizza oven" bar food. You absolutely have to try the family patriarch's signature "Smilen' Bob's Chili. Lot's of zip without being too hot to handle. Famous for their hand made burgers and pizzas too. Big beer selection including some nice tap choices. Fun atmosphere and very friendly staff (family owned for 40 years). If this place... More

We stopped for an after dinner drink and stayed 4 hours! The bartender was very friendly and knowledgable. Plenty of table and bar seating. Nice atmosphere with a jukebox. The drinks were very well made and the prices were low considering it is a tourist town. We didn't eat although they had a very nice menu and from what we... More
