While we have dined there on many occasions, our last visit involved a bit of larceny (I believe). With another couple, we enjoyed breakfast but felt that we were "suckered" into a scheme to relieve us of an extra $20. We paid our bill with cash that included an approximately 20% tip and gave the waitress the folder with the money that two of us had counted to verify the amount.

Moments later, the waitress returned and told us that there was barely enough to cover the bill, let alone the tip! My friend and I explained that each of us had counted the cash and was certain that the amount included an adequate tip. The Hostess / Cashier came to the table and vouched for the waitress's version of being short one twenty dollar bill. The lesson here for me (and others that might want to eat at Bayside Skillet) is to pay with a credit card and make sure that the numbers add up properly.

The Bayside skillet is a restaurant with quirky flair. In season, sit outside under the thatched umbrellas; in winter, sit next to the bar so you can watch the drinks being freshly squeezed. The fresh fruit juice is reason alone to come. Yes, it is somewhat expensive, but this is a classic situation of get-what-you-pay-for, and here you pay for the freshest squeezed juice in the state. The juice here is as good as the freshly squeezed that you can get in FL or AZ. In Maryland, this is a treat!

Portions are huge. Share if you have a reasonably normal appetite. I recommend getting cream with your crepes, but as for it on the side. It is fresh and rich, and a little goes a long way. The fruit in the crepes is fresh and flavorful even in winter. I highly recommend the cinnamon and sugar crepes for little ones and the crepes kathryn for adults. My husband loves the omelettes here. They are huge and feature decadent embellishments like crab.

Also service is great. Cheerful, plentiful coffee refills, and your waitress is always there when you need her. This place can get packed in summer, but it is worth the wait!

Great quality food but on the expensive side. The restaurant is pink, colorful and cheeful. No football games at the bar here. Had a fritatta. It was huge cost about 13.00 but good quality and quantity. They had peanut butter and jelly crepes for the kids and my nephews enjoyed them. The omletttes look excellent, the crepes were excellent and they make their own chantilly creme to go with them. Friendly wait staff and the owner came over to see how everything was. Coffee was excellent. They have a bar and had many drinks that your could add to your bruch enjoyment. Plenty of offstreet parking. Clean restrooms. Definately will be back. Expect to pay about 15 to 20 dollars for adults and if I remember correctly the pb & j crepes were like 6.95,
