“Bar food with an amazing view”

Bayfront Bar & Grill
Ranked #9 of 26 Restaurants in Lake Lure
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stopped by the Bayfront Bar and Grill while on vacation. We were there at an odd time so there were only a couple of occupied tables when we arrived. There seemed to only be one waitress working but she was attentive to everyone and we were served quickly. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. Our boys were very excited to try the "Big Blue" drink and enjoyed it very much. The waitress then offered to refill their drinks with Sprite at no charge. My husband really enjoyed his fresh catch fish sandwich, my chicken tenders were delicious and our boys enjoyed their choices of a french dip and shrimp. The portions were quite large. The restaurant is right on the lake so the view can't be beat. On a nicer day you could enjoy outdoor seating but the day we were there it was rainy, windy and cold so we were happy to be inside but in front of the window. Perhaps on a return visit we will dine at the Bayfront's sister restaurant "Larkins on the Lake" but we would be happy to stick to the Grill too.

We ate at Bayfront before the crush of the season so the patio was empty. The view of the mountains and lake are wonderful. The young staff is pleasant. Our waiter knows the area because he helped orient us and suggested other area attractions. The burgers are high quality, charcoal grilled and served with a nice selection of sides. I can imagine parking could be difficult in high season.

We went in the afternoon for lunch/dinner. We tried to go through the front door but the restaurant upstairs (Larkin's) doesn't open until 5. We found our way down and around to the bar in the back. Standard selection of food, bar atmosphere (though we were early). We had good service. The fish was great and although I wasn't the biggest fan of the soup I ordered, they get points for making it from scratch. Standard selection of beer and there are video games! We would return.

A great place where tourists, locals and bikers intermix in nice surroundings, with great outdoor seating on the lake. Hard to beat this place for a relaxing casual meal and a beer.

The food at bayfront bar and grill is actually pretty good. It is outdoor seating most of it is covered but I could see where it could be a problem in bad weather. We went in late September the weather was perfect for eating outside not to cold but not burning up either. And with the smell of autumn in the air and the breeze from the lake it certainly made you think of fall. The view from anywhere in there seating area is amazing. You can see right down the lake with the mountains in the background. What a beautiful view to eat by.
