Enjoying a relaxing weekend dinner with an awesome view of the canal. I had scallops that were amazing. My husband had the rock fish, large portion. Food was good but drinks were sad. Our meal totaled $112 before the tip for two.

We enjoyed dinner at the Bayard House. We sat inside, looking at the canal. The view was mesmerizing as the dark set in and a big boat went by in front of us. The food was very good and the attention really nice.

I have dined here several times however, I never ordered lobster only the crab cakes. The crab cakes are the best I have had in the region. I recommend you call the restaurant directly regarding your question. Happy Travels!
