We recently celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Baia. Parking was ample. Reservations are highly recommended during the summer season. Our server was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for drinks and dinner. We sat on the lower outside deck and enjoyed wonderful views of the the bay and sunset. The atmosphere here is casual and the fare here is... More

Ample seating in and outside. Great view of the bay and accessible via boat. Wide selection of Italian-style seafood, average portions, $$$-$$$$. Tried the sushi tuna taco ($13), clam "chowda ($6), and macadamia crusted snapper ($30). Service was average.

The best thing about Baia is that it's in the water. Excellent view and you can get there by boat. During the summer they have music on the deck and it's usually very busy. That said I find the food to be average and the atmosphere relatively cold. If you want to drink and eat on the water and don't... More

We enjoyed our meal at Baia and loved the service. It was too hot to sit outside, but we were seated in a quiet area and served by a very friendly waitress. Drinks were generous as well.

The only thing this place has going for it is the scenery. Food is way overpriced and mediocre at best. Service was good but since it was slow everything came out quick and it felt like a rushed experience. For a couple to spend over $125 on dinner i expect to be there more than 40 minutes. The only dessert... More

We tried Baia b/c we couldn't get a table at anchorage inn. The deck has a beautiful view of the bay. A great spot for cocktails. The food is typical resort seashore fried fare. The wait staff was nice but the food was sub-par in every way. Don't go hungry.

The restaurant is on the bay in Somers Point. There is a full bar with seating inside and out. There is a bar outside with live entertainment. The service was very good and the fish dishes we ordered were cooked properly and included chefs potato and vegetable of the day. Warm rolls accompanied dinner. Salad was extra but was large...

The food was very good & so was the service. View was great. A little more expensive than I expected. We all were happy with the experience. Some creative meals & a very good craft beer selection.
