“Nothing special, reasonably tasty”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

Locals people's favorite weekend brunch place, hence there are way too many people around on Saturday and Sunday morning, doesn't have worth for me to wait...
Menus are easy to guess as a typical American pancake serving place, taste good but nothing special.

“Awesome breakfast and brunch place”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

We love Bay Watch! They offer great service and a menu full of more than just the run of the mill brunch and breakfast foods. The recipes are unique. They offer omelets, salads, sandwiches and have healthy selections if you so opt. Do be prepared to wait for a table during the busier times. This place is POPULAR!!

“Good breakfast joint”
Reviewed July 3, 2011

Just joined trip advisor after a recent trip when so many people were utilizing it for where to go eat, thought i'd review a couple places from home first. Bay watch has reliably quick service, even when its busy on the weekends. food is consistent, and caters to what i want in a good ole american breakfast, a healthy start. this is a good alternative to Stacks, another one of my favorites. Just depends what im feeling really. Coffee is good and always hot, and im a fan of the pancakes. big and nummers.
