This is a very nice bar with tables and an enormously long bar to sit and have drinks or a meal. The burgers were really great! Cooked just the way we like them. The bartender was fun and very nice.

We stopped in for a drink and really only had an appetizer and salad. Service was kind of slow but they were very busy. Very dark place compared to many of the restaurants in Fish Creek

We visit Door County year round and always have a lunch or early dinner at Bayside. Soup is yummy, chili is comforting and the Ruben sandwiches are terrific. Wish they served the fish fry more often--we are not in the area on Fridays. Try it--our grandchildren like it too.!

Great food and good service. Ate here three times in our short time in Fish Creek. Had a lot of beer selections on tap. Menu was large and had something for everyone. Always friendly

Like the name says this is a tavern, so why so expensive like a fine dining supper club? I guess I would chalk it up to a highly trafficked tourist destination in Door County.

Stopped at Bayside for lunch with some friends and our families, I asked about their Bloody Mary, she told me they were rated Door County's best-I was excited for that! We ordered a basket of fried goodies as an appetizer. They were just ok. When the Bloody Mary came I was soooo disappointed-a big celery and 2 olives and no... More

Sounds like an advertisement for the grocery store and Sister Bay. Good job! More
