The Bayside Restaurant has been offering fresh and delicious food to our customers for over four decades.
Family owned and operated. Our family's recipes have been handed down for generations. The Bayside proudly sources our produce locally. Supporting our local farms, farmers and fishermen. Our fresh seafood comes straight off the boats in New Bedford and the Boston waterfront. Our fresh vegetables from local farmers. This allows us to provide our customers with a variety of fresh dishes that we love and are proud to serve. The Bayside Restaurant is located in the south end of Westport, MA - where you can enjoy our spectacular view across the Massachusetts Audubon’s Allen’s Pond Sanctuary, Buzzard’s Bay and the Elizabeth Islands. Our family and amazing staff are here to provide you with a delicious and pleasurable dining experience.
We continue to stay true to the vision set forth by Nance & Bob Carroll when they both, along with their parents,
founded The Bayside Restaurant decades ago. The perfect location, delicious food and a friendly atmosphere.
History and Location
The Bayside Restaurant was established in 1974 by Bob and Nance Carroll. Previously a pizza and ice cream "beach shack".
Now The Bayside is home to great food, people and atmosphere. Located at 1253 Horseneck Rd in Westport, Ma.
How it all began. Bob grew up working in his family’s banquet hall in South Providence. He joined the Army and went on to become a Washington Star reporter. He also spent some time working for Klitsner Industry. Nance, worked with unwed mothers. Placing children with families to be adopted. Together, they wanted to open a restaurant where people could go and get a great meal and conversation. As a family they started The Bayside Restaurant.
In the beginning days, owners, Nance & Bob introduced a menu that offered mostly diner food. Roast beef grinders, meatloaf and fried foods filled the menu. Nance included homemade pies and desserts made from fresh blueberries and strawberries hand picked by Grandma Lewis and Aunt May locally.
In time Nance began to evolve their menu options by introducing Portuguese and Mediterranean foods and flavors.
