Bayside Grill: A Casual Dining Experience in the Anguilla Caribbean
You know Bayside Grill has a good thing going when even local Anguillans visit the establishment. And there’s good reason why they do. Who wouldn’t enjoy dining on high-quality fare at relaxing beachside tables just a stone’s toss from the azure waters of the Caribbean? Bayside Grill’s got a little of everything to satisfy the cravings of visiting vacationers from all over the world, including fresh seafood, perfectly-grilled meats, wood-fired pizzas and mouthwatering salads, desserts and libations. From its thoughtful menu to its warm, attentive staff and balanced bar selection, Bayside Grill is the place to go for lunch on your Anguilla vacation.
To get to Bayside Grill, hop on a golf cart or stroll down the hill that leads to the bay. Make your way past Da’Vida restaurant to find the path to the beloved dining spot where casual is king. Looking for a break from the sun? Park yourself on a cozy rattan chair in the covered dining section. Better yet, grab a table near an umbrella or at one of the lounge chairs along the beach to prepare for the finest casual dining in Anguilla. Somehow, flavors are made tastier here by the salty ocean air, the abundance of sunshine and the ever-present churn of waves splashing against the shore. With its stunning view and proximity to world-class accommodations like CeBlue Villa and Resort, one might expect an air of pretentiousness at Bayside Grill, but you’ll find none of that here. This outdoor space is never stuffy or uptight. Only warm and relaxing. Come as you are in your beach attire or casual clothes. From coverups and board shorts to flip-flops and sandals, the dress code is “comfortable” at Bayside Grill.
But you’re here to eat, yes? If so, you’re in the right place. There’s a reason why Anguilla is known as “the culinary capital of the Caribbean,” and the flavors at Bayside Grill are what bring in the crowds. The irresistible Angus burger is a real people-pleaser: a hearty beef patty, cooked to perfection on our grill and piled high with your favorite trimmings. For slightly lighter fare, try the grilled chicken sandwich or herb-battered fish sandwich. Wood-fired pizzas also delight, like the Da’Vida supreme, a robust blend of sizzling meats, veggies, sauce and cheese. For pizza non-traditionalists, the Margherita pizza doesn’t disappoint, nor does the chicken Caesar salad pizza. Still, there’s a chance that you’ve got seafood on your mind, which isn’t surprising, considering how close you are to the ocean. If this is the case, the seafood salad is the way to go. Packed with an insane amount of seafood, lobster tail, shrimp and fresh fish, the salad is priced to please, providing an incredible value for salad and seafood lovers alike.
Even in paradise, one can work up quite an appetite. For these guests, our sumptuous entrees are the perfect remedies. Try a mouth-watering rib eye steak, seared to perfection on our grill and seasoned to bring out the cut’s rich, beefy flavors. Bayside Grill also has a way with more delicate meats, like the grilled lobster, a succulent serving of tender, white meat served with garlic herb butter. Can’t get enough of the tastes of the sea? Try a seafood sampler. Piled high with crayfish, tuna, shrimp and scallops, it’s the finest way to get all the tastes of the Caribbean together on one plate. Or, to eat like a local, try any of Bayside Grills’ barbecued fare. The ribs and chicken dishes are some of the best on the island—always a popular choice when visiting the Caribbean.
Looking to kick back with a cocktail? The bar offers many delightful options. The attentive staff makes sure the selection is primed to impress, with some of the finest premium spirits available. Naturally, a visit to the Caribbean calls for rum, and here you’ll find some of the finest brands available, from Bacardi and Mount Gay to Pyrat and Gosling’s Black Seal. If rum’s not your thing, opt for the spirit or beer of your choice, or sip on wine or champagne from around the world, available by the bottle or glass.
Sure, the bar stocks many popular choices, but while you’re here, why not sip on one of the island’s indigenous cocktails? Perhaps no other drink defines Anguilla more than the Rum Punch, a delightful blend of light and dark rums, tropical juices like orange, pineapple. Handcrafted by our knowledgeable bartenders, this sassy libation is sweetened with dashes of simple syrup and grenadine before being dusted with a healthy shake of nutmeg. The result is a cocktail the color of an Anguillan sunset and packed with a bliss-inducing explosion of flavor. In other words, it’s the perfect end to a day spent in paradise. Though a popular choice, the rum punch isn’t your only option. A few other beverages are sure to tickle your fancy. Like the Head Twister, a velvety blend of vodka, banana liqueur, Midori, and pineapple and lime juices. Or the Concious (Sherri: please verify spelling, is it supposed to be Conscious?) Blend, a house favorite made with strawberry rum, blue curacao, mango, cranberry juice and grenadine. And of course, no seaside bar would be complete without frozen drinks. Belly up to the bar for a minty mojito, or chill out with a margarita, daiquiri or piña colada. Speaking of frozen drinks, there are plenty of alcohol-free options for non-drinkers and kids, from daiquiris to milkshakes.
With so many delicious offerings in such a cozy setting, it’s no wonder Bayside Grill is such a crowd favorite. Never is this more obvious than on Sunday afternoon when a band takes the stage. Playing reggae mixed with rock and pop classics, the combination of open air and rhythm tends to bring smiles and tapping feet.
