The Bayard is in an unassuming but historic building at the end of a one way street, but well worth the effort to search and find parking (though we learned there is a spill over lot on the edge of town). All staff were friendly and welcoming. One of the signature cocktails, The Mariner, was an intriguing blend of rye whiskey, Fernet Branca and floral Genepy. With many interesting choices it was hard to choose, but we finally decided on fresh oysters on the half shell and the Chesapeake seasoned crab fries for appetizers. The chicken lettuce wraps were well seasoned and light. The house special of Anaheim peppers stuffed with shrimp, crab and green peppers was phenomenal. The green bean side was perfect. The key lime pie and Smith Island cake were well make and a great ending to an enjoyable meal with a full view of the canal.
