Bayside is the old name. It is now called The Beach Tiki Bar and Boil. The "Boil" referring to the crab pots they now offer.
So for those that have been to Bayside in the past and found the food and or service, um, less than desirable, and come to the "new" place expecting a completely different experience, you will be sadly let down.
We overheard one of the servers mention to another table that it's owned by the same family as Bayside, just that it was sold from the uncle to the nephew. Apparently no one in the family can run a restaurant.
I still believe the only reason this place lives on is due to the liquor license and the location. Drink enough, enjoy the lake view, and you'll live with the food you're dealt I suppose.
The service was slow as it was in the past. When a server comes over and says "Has anyone been over yet?", we replied no, she says "OK, well I'm your server, [name]", you know you're in for a good time. The decor is basically the same (oh, there's a few tiki masks around...yay), and the food was meh at best. For those wondering, the crab pot was "market price"...$41 for the king crab legs pot. Flavor and portion-wise, definitely not worth it.
No need to go back unless it's strictly for drinks I think.
