On a dock overlooking Lake Minnetonka, Bayside Grill complements tranquil views with eclectic selections from a lunch and dinner menu as well as a breakfast menu of internationally inspired dishes. Appetite-seducing starters include the smoked gouda & lager fondue, a steamy vessel of beer-infused and smoked gouda cheese served with dipping morsels such as apples, vegetables, and tiny scuba divers ($9.25). Bayside Grille's chefs hand-roll the crust of their Mediterranean pizza, brushing it with basil pesto and littering the doughy canvas with kalamata olives, roasted corn, and pine nuts before signing the finished pie with a cursive variant of pepperoncini ($10.25). Sandwiches and salads share the bill with entrees such as the hickory smoked half-chicken bathed in apple cider and rubbed with a house blend of seasonings ($12.95). Those who opt for the breakfast option can inaugurate the day over lemon ricotta waffles with whipped cream and strawberries ($7.75) or a bayside breakfast burrito of scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese with a choice of gourmet meats ($8.75).
Diners can cozy up to the waters of Lake Minnetonka beneath royal blue awnings on the dockside deck or stay inside, where a wood-inlaid fireplace spills warmth over hardwood floors and large windows let booth sitters digest stunning views. Periodic live music feeds ears, and three bars—one indoors and two outdoors—challenge the wisdom that water, water everywhere means a paucity of drink.
