My wife and I pulled into town on March 6th, 'cause she'd never seen Coastal Texas, and this is where we landed. The staff at the Best Western across the highway suggested Bayside for seafood. The place looked pretty "average" from the outside, but when we got in, the server & cook welcomed us and treated us really well. The... More

Small, seafood joint. Most items are fried but they have daily specials. The waitstaff was friendly and made many suggestions. I wasn't very hungry and ended up getting a small shrimp dish that was excellent and fresh. I'd go back there if I'm ever in the area again.

Wife had basic hamburger and it was very good. Tasty meat and large. My green salad with shrimp was also very good. Nice selection. Recommend

We've enjoyed the lunch special fish and fries several times, always good. We've also tried the crawfish boil during crawfish season, excellent!

Keeping it pithy food was oily and overcooked, aka not fresh, food was served without a plate for each person, overpriced. Service was irrelevant and robotic. Drive a little and get better elsewhere.

Average food, nothing special. Will not return here to eat. Place looked in shambles, holes in ceiling where cables were coming out. Flies and I just hoped we could get out of there without getting sick.

This restaurant has become a regular stop for my husband & I coming back from the coast. Lunch time service is quick & friendly. I had the fried shrimp poboy, shrimp perfectly cooked & seasoned (8), really do not care for battered fries, but they were crisp & hot. My husband had a daily special of coconut shrimp with dirty...
