I met some friends here for drinks and dinner and sat at the outside bar. What a great view of the ships and town. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. We have a great time. There is also inside dining.

Great place in this cute little town. We sat outside at the umbrella bar for drinks and it was really enjoyable. The other customers were all very friendly.

Wish we had read recent reviews instead of relying on memories of the wonderful meal we had at the Bayard House years ago.

The “sea scallops” entree delivered to our table was pitiful. Scallops were tiny, over cooked and seemed reheated. Accompanying spinach was nearly dehydrated. If it hadn’t been a special occasion it would have been returned to the kitchen.

The restaurant was deserted, smelled musty and needed a paint job on the inside. Definitely showing it’s age and in need of a reboot. All in all, a disappointing evening at this venue which we will not repeat.

If you are looking for a great restaurant with style, history and class, stop in for a meal or just appetizers or desert. They have a great bar on the back lawn area and the Veranda, out back, gives a nice, peaceful view of the C&D Canal and Bridge. You'll dine off of linen table cloths and cloth napkins. Great place settings and service. Also great, is that everything is very reasonable and you are treated graciously. Really good food too!

We ate here on a Saturday evening without having made reservations. We were seated on the enclosed porch with a view of the canal. The outside seating area had an hour wait. The restaurant we had planned to eat at had an hour and 45 min wait, so we were thankful to be seated.
The atmosphere was relaxed and quiet and the staff very nice.
It took a long time for our food to arrive considering I ordered only soup and salad and my husband had the crabcake sandwich.
The food was good and the server apologized for the wait. We were not in a hurry and the view was delightful, so for us, on this night it was not a problem.
Overall, I'd say if you're looking for a relaxed dinner, great view and don't mind spending more for it, you'll be satisfied.
