“Chili, chili, chili”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Great place to hang out, grab a few drinks and always get the chili! When I lived in the Northeast, my brother would freeze the chili and FedEx to me.

“Great Bar Food and more”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Whenever we are in Door County, we always stop at Bayside for at least one meal. The food is simple but good. The have an excellent fried perch plate and good chili. It is also a great hide away for men to hang out while their wives shop. Catch a game on TV while your wife spends the money!

“You must stop here!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Bars come and go. Bars are bars. NOT THIS ONE! The bartenders are the best! It's worth the trip to be waited on by them. The chili is awesome. The music chill. Relax and have a good time. Personable service. They appreciate your patronage. it's such a fun place to go. We stop here at least 4 times a year.

“The atmosphere is worth the wait”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We were looking for a place with good pizza and Bayside Tavern was recommended to us by a motel employee. We had visited Fish Creek many times and walked by Bayside Tavern without even a thought of going so I am glad that we found it because it has become our place to eat at least once when in Door County. On a recent visit over noon hour it was very busy and yes we waited awhile for our food but it has such a great atmosphere and the wait staff is so friendly, efficient and accommodating that it didn't matter to us. If you are looking for a fast in and out it probably is not the place to go but we were in Door County to relax and enjoy. I rated it high for service despite the wait as the staff is so good natured while checking back even though they are running as fast as they can. We usually order pizza as we love the generous amount of good cheese and the crispy crust but have eaten sandwiches too and have yet to be disappointed in any of the fare. I love the openness of this place. After reading other reviews I am going to try the chili next time I go.

“It's a Bar - (with the best Perch Fry in Door County)”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It's a bar. It has bar service - meaning that there is minimal attention. They serve great burgers, soups and chili. They are often crowded with local tourists and local personalities. But their not so much a secret is that they have the BEST perch fish fry on Friday evenings in all of Door County. Simply perfect. And for the most ambitious of appetites. For those on a tight budget that need to share meals - this is ample for two people. Located in downtown Fish Creek. Enjoy!
