Gone! Originally the scuttle but was that they had closed for renovations, now almost a year later all that is there is the building. Feel sorry for all the Weddings that had scheduled to be there.

We stopped for just a drink (no food) but had very friendly service during a very busy time (Ryder Cup crowds). The view of the lake is perfect for a sunset view. Highly recommend!

I love the food and drinks at Bayside. The patio is nice and the view is fantastic. It's a fun place for meeting friends. Can't go wrong here.

Bay Side Grille could just be so much better. Stopped there 10:00 pm Saturday night. The place needs new ownership.

Love the location of this place. Great place to take kids for outdoor eating as it over looks the lake. Just took my grandchildren there and they loved it.

That about sums up this place. Just very nice all the way around. Good food and nice view of the lake. Great for a relaxing lunch on a lazy summer afternoon.
