Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar is one of Naples’ most beloved waterfront restaurants, renowned for its exhilarating views of Venetian Village and Bay, and cuisine that is an art form unto itself. Dine in one of three different settings: The Cafe has a casual cafe atmosphere located street-level with stunning views of the Venetian Bay, the elegant upstairs Grill for lunch or dinner provides sweeping views of the waterfront, or the Upper Deck Bar, offering a laid back dining experience in an open-air setting.
Bayside’s history began in 1989, when owners Tony Ridgway and Sukie Honeycutt were approached by the Lutgert Companies, developers of The Village on Venetian Bay, to open a waterfront restaurant on the Village’s south side. Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar opened in October of 1990, and quickly became one of Naples' premier restaurants.
Bayside's ambience is inspired by the pastel hues and iconic imagery of a seaside cottage. The panoramas, stunning as always, can be seen from any table both upstairs and downstairs.
Bayside has been managed by John Everding for the past 12 years. As Bayside's managing partner, John is "the face" of the restaurant in the Naples community, well-regarded for anticipating customers wishes, and ensuring an unforgettable dining experience.
