We loved our appy, the dinner was OK. I like the location on a canal, ambiance a bit stuffy. We decided if we went back we were only going to eat appy's, but we didn't go back all week.

The view was beautiful! Dinner seemed rushed, it was good, but my lobster was a bit overcooked, my husband had the special. It was a small portion but good!

Great service, beautiful view, way above average food, esprcially the mussels. They take reservations, which is a real plus in the "high season". Two for one happy hour. We have been there many times and will be back!

Fine dining awaits you at Bayfront Bistro. Excellent food, beautiful scenery and attentive waitstaff. Try the scallops -- you won't be disappointed. Don't want seafood? No worries. The chicken and meat entrees are also not to be missed.
