  • Bayside is like a port of Miami. Well located, has many shops and kiosks. How to keep at Bay the boat tours are varied and sold right there. Is always with many tourists in holiday season. Has option of restaurants like the Hard Rock and other drinks and meals or snacks. Worth the visit. Is free of charge.

  • Disappointing visit. Really just a mall with usual mall stores, tourist stuff and average restaurants. Yes, it’s in a pretty location, but that’s about the only redeeming feature.  more »
  • Whenever you're in Miami should turn by Bayside. Pleasant place, almost always with live music. With a beautiful view and places to eat and drink, apart that it boasts shops for shopping. Place turisrico with long flow of tourists always. From here excursions by boat are taken as in buses to different parts of the city.

  • Nice place to walk around and have a drink and just relax with the view of the water. Good shops. I was sad to see there isn't much of a food court left with only 4 restaurants to choose from. It's basically a place where you have to eat at a restaurant so make sure to have money as nothing is even cheap. Parking was 25$ that day to Park in the garage. There is parking lots on the street but not sure if it's cheaper. Live band at night for fun entertainment
  • Great shopping variety and a novelty to visit with the open roof concept. That being said, the overall maintenance seems to be lacking. Another major issue includes the lack of restrooms, with the ladies room spanning a long line. Overall the atmosphere is welcoming and its a friendly place for children; with such amenities including small rides and live animal petting! Free live music and the view from the Marina makes visiting this marketplace somewhat worthwhile.
  • The bayside Marketplace has a great set of restaurants, bars and shops. There are street food vendors selling food and ice cream. The boutique stores include all the main brands you could expect. possibly think. There is a huge Hard Rock Cafe that serves every cocktail or shooter you can wish for. It’s lively with lots of people and music. You need a couple of hours if you want to do shopping and have a bite to eat.
  • In my opinion, Bayside Marketplace caters to two audiences: tourists and, how do I word this kindly, people of a certain class. Clearly, I do not coming here. Although I do appreciate the live and free music, I do not appreciate the feeling that I am going to get mugged any minute. It's very simple, if you don't feel safe in an area there's no possible way it can receive a 5-Star review and have repeat customers. Is it a tourist attraction, absolutely. I did notice that the entrance was filled vendors and what looked to be a "farmers market". Perhaps things have changed and they are trying to attract a different local crowd. Go check it out, I'm not telling you not to do so. Walk the entire strip, enjoy the foods, the drinks, and the crowd. Then once it's all said and done, you'll know if you'll return. Good luck!
  • Great and huge place. Lots of shops and restaurants for different tastes. Many kind of water rides are also available which will take you to the bays and show you the all around places. Each island have mansions of big celebrities, political and business persons. We also luckily saw a whole group of dolphins on our boat trip. Live music performance. Must visit place in Miami.
