BaysideWould you like a good burger? I mean….a really good burger?! Look no further! Really….stop looking and start heading to Bayside Bar and Grill. You can’t miss it downtown, there is a large pelican ready to scoop you up and bring you in right above the door! Bayside used to be a few different establishments — and personally I never cared for the predecessors. I didn’t know how Bayside would be, but the first time we tried it out after they opened I was happily surprised! I ordered the fish tacos the first time I went there, and they were very tasty  They were very light and fresh tasting and have become one of their most popular dishes. The second time I went I tried the BLT. Again, so good! Just what you want from a BLT.

Third time I went…I tried the classic burger. Since then, I am hooked on the burgers! It’s a half pound of pure delight. The burger comes with lettuce and tomato and you can add other toppings like cheese/bacon/onion. I like a good burger and I look around for one that will make me crave it — Bayside Burger tops the bill. In fact, just writing this makes me want to run into town and grab one to go! So you’re in Walker for the weekend and you see the obvious burger stop..Hardees..but think past that and hop into Bayside Bar and Grill instead, you won’t be disappointed. Check out their website in advance:

The Village Square Cafe – My Favorite Things! Part III

Posted by The Guide's Wife Filed in In Entertainment, Where to eat

In my last post, I mentioned a favorite restaurant of mine named The Village Square. I would like to continue this discussion and tell you why it merits this title. First off, if you are wondering why I am only writing of my favorite things (Oprah, I love you) its because it would be insane for me to write of things I do not like and therefore would deem a waste of time. So to show myself sane, I write of things I know and love. Which is food.

And that brings us back to The Village Square. If I were younger and maybe single, I would spend way more of my time there due to it’s inviting couches and probably the best coffee on the planet. It feels much like the setting of “Friends”, without the desperation. Either way, we do frequent there a lot. They have free wifi in the entire place, making it very handy to spend way too much time sipping coffee. On one side of the place is the coffee and ice cream shop with the couches mentioned before. They have a rewards program for your coffee buying habits and the ice cream makes me fat just thinking about it. Bring it on!

Now, there is seating between the coffee shop and the restaurant area perfect for you and your laptop. Or if you prefer, you and your friends. On threw the hallway, past the seating area, is the restaurant area with more seating upstairs in a somewhat loft like space, or downstairs in a cozy booth or table. The whole place just screams “COZY”, which I love. “But how is their FOOD?? Get to the FOOD!”

I love their food. I have of course, my favorites that I always order. Once in awhile I will stray and try something new, and I am always delighted. Now, my favorites are the breadsticks and the Tomato Basil Soup. Which deserves the all capitals I just used as though it were a person and place and not just a thing. That soup captivated my taste-buds the first time we met, which was some years ago now. And nothing has changed. Honestly though, their entire menu is fantastic. It’s all home made, people! Do you even remember what it’s like to have a home made meal?? Go here, it will all come back in a flash. They don’t have a large “dinner” menu per-say, but what they do have they put their own spin on and make it more wonderful than you would have thought. When we go to The Village Square, it’s like a treat. A family owned business serving up sweet sweetness, it will always be at the top of my Favorite Things. Plus you can get a glass of the aforementioned Forestedge Wine, bonus!

“Well, OK, we get it. But we really want to go somewhere fancy and not as casual because it’s our 5th Year Anniversary. Now where are we supposed to go??” Let me tell you….
