Bayside Tavern is a great place just to hang out with the locals. Drinking beer is a wonderful Wisconsin pastime and this is the place to do it in Door County. The food is good and the crowd is loud and friendly. Fun times...

We visited the Bayside Tavern on a Friday night in January. Although the area is typically very slow during these months, the bar was actually pretty busy, which was a good sign. The staff was friendly and polite. We grabbed a table and ordered drinks and dinner. My husband had the fried perch, which seems to be the Bayside's go-to... More

I've killed a few hours as others in my party are shopping the town. It is centrally located and has a good range of local ales. The customers are a mix of locals and tourists. Drop by and enjoy.

We went here after seeing all the good reviews for it. We're so glad we went here! The philly sandwich was sooo good!!! Burgers, fries and fish and chips were also extremely good. Highly recommended.

Their hamburger and fries were great. Not too busy on a early December Wednesday cold night, but great place to go.

We weren't disappointed. The lake perch we enjoyed on Friday was every bit as good as any we've had elsewhere - a true Northeast Wisconsin tradition, well executed. The beer selection was excellent, to, and the service was top notch.
