Bayside Seafood Grill and Bar


October is National Seafood Month!

King Neptune returns to Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar in October as the popular waterfront restaurant hosts its 3rd annual month-long celebration recognizing National Seafood Month with 10 featured seafood creations. Designed by Bayside’s head chef Abel Gonzalez, with creative input from legendary Naples chef Tony Ridgway, five new seafood dishes will join five local favorites as the 24-year old restaurant explores the depths of the sea and palette every day in October. The event takes place during dinner in the Grill every night through October. Show your valid Florida driver license and receive 10% off a featured dish.
