We ended up at this restaurant after rejecting a 90 minute wait at the Crab Trap. We waited about 30 minutes in a pleasant atmosphere on the deck bar. Cold beer for the adults and Shirley Temples for the kids. Our table was outdoors with a great view, but it did get quite warm. We started with mussels, clams, calamari... More

Ok experience. Nothing bad. The night we visited they had Reggae music which all sounds the same to me. We ate outside and there was a nice view of the bay and the Somersets Point-Ocean City Bridge. Our service was good. Had a burger and salad which were both average.

Had a very nice time at the outdoor bar. Bartender Dan was great. Drinks were excellent and served with a smile.

We visited this restaurant for dinner on a girls overnight at the beach. We picked it because of the view, and we weren't disappointed. It was gorgeous! The food was good. People were nice. I'm a picky eater, and there was plenty I liked. The spinach dip was AMAZING. Also had the corn chowder, which was kind of boring. The... More

Don't like to write a negative review about what used to be one of our favorite places. It's a shame as the location is beautiful. Unfortunately, the new menu is disappointing but at least the entire menu can now be ordered whether one is seated indoors or outdoors. There are no longer many pasta options. My husband ordered the 1... More

Yet another good meal. Have never had a bad experience here. Service is good and food is excellent. Portions are appropriate. Only downfall....not thrilled with their shooter desserts. Would like the creme brule, etc. back.....

Drinks & dinner were both fabulous! Made reservations for a large (9) party on the upper deck. Table was ready, server was great, food came quickly. Will definitely be back! Only con- I chose the upper deck because it was covered from the sun, it did have ceiling fans, however it was very hot where we were and we found... More

Visit with my family for a good seafood dinner. Great location obscured by tint on inside windows. Tacky decor-obviously owner doesn't care. Music so loud you had to scream to have conversation. Food was good and waiter couldn't have been nicer. Disappointed. Go to Smittys Clam bar down the street.

We have visited Baia many times for happy hour but have not been in a few years for dinner. Recently we heard it was much better and worth another try. As a surprise for my wife on her birthday I invited her childhood friends to join us. The reservation for 6 was made several days in advance requesting the covered... More

Been here several times before, the food is very good atmosphere is great especially the waterfront view from the deck. Our server was very friendly. However, it took nearly 50 minutes for appetizer to arrive and way too long for our main course. When we mentioned this to the waitress, she said The kitchen was very backed up and she... More
