“Best breakfast ever hands down!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

The bayside skillet simply put is the best breakfast in OC, MD! The strawberry blitz omelet is what I ordered on two separate occasions and it was amazing both times!! Coffee was great too! The staff is on top of everything and very quick! The restaurant was packed on both visits but worth the ten minute wait! Worth every penny!! Thank you!

“Prices are outrageous!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

$70.00 for 4 people to eat breakfast. 2 omelets 2 sides of potatoes 3 cups of orange juice and 3 cups of coffee. They charge $5.00 for orange juice! Really!! The food was average at best. Service was good. Atmosphere was average nothing to rave about. I don't mind spending money on eating out, but I will never eat there again. Thinking back now, I should have just walked out when I opened the menu.

“Read the menu first!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

If we had read the menu first, we would have moved on. Omelets are high and don't come with any sides—potatoes, toast, etc. EVERYTHING IS ALA CARTE. The waitress asked if we wanted any hot sauce or ketchup with our omelets. My husband asked for some salsa not realizing he would be charged $3 for a TINY 2" cup. The salsa was obviously from a jar an not homemade. The omelets are large and can be shared, but aren't anything special. General's Kitchen in Ocean City is still my favorite breakfast place. Wish we had gone there instead.

“$$ really?$$”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

$42 for two omelets, 2 cup smog coffee and one side of hash browns is a little steep for me....AND that is without the tip which we always do over the 20% minimum. Service was good and friendly, cool atmosphere, lots of parking, no wait, but the price and average taste of the food will keep me away from this place.

“High prices, questionable quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I broke my own rule by coming here (if the advertised menu doesn't show the prices, there's a reason and not a good one). Since we are such early risers, it was a task to find early opening breakfast spots in the off season though. We are totally fine with paying for good food but its an absolute joke when the price for an omelette averages about $15, no toast or potatoes, just an omelette. And a cup of weak, yes weak, coffee is $3. The bigger issue for us was the quality though. The color of the eggs in the omelette was light and the consistency and the flavor was watery. I could guess why but I don't know why. Additionally, the floor appeared to not have been vacuumed from the day before. The overdone pink, pink, pink was not to our taste but the important issue here is insultingly overpriced food that was fair at best.
