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.

We have been coming to this location for years. The name has changed many times over the 20 years, but the atmosphere has been at the same level: very good. It's usually always crowded in the evening and especially on the weekend. The food is good, but not exceptional. Prices are high, but average for Ocean City. It's a decent... More

We had a delicious dinner. It was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The service, however, is abominable. There are many distracted wait staff milling about yet only 1 or 2 of them have a clue as to what they ought to be doing. It is actually a customer service circus. The view of the bay is very nice. The food... More

The only good thing about Baia last night was the view ... Great location. The hostess, bartender and manager were so incredibly rude. We were told the wait was an hour and a half. A large party came in behind us and were seated before us (no reservations for dining on the patio). When we finally got our table, it... More
