Bayside Market has a couple great things going for it.

1.) Their deli/food selection is amazing. (Try the meatballs) Their lunch deals are great, their dinner/combo options are awesome. (Seriously, try the meatballs) They even cater events around town, depending where you live. (Meatballs = WIN... get it?)

2.) Location, location, location. As a last minute stop for locals on the way outside of TC city limits, its a last-stop shop for quality wines, beers and foods.

Downside? The Beer (as far as BeerAdvocate is concerned). They do offer a large selection, even having a mixer-sixer section for individual sale bottles/cans. However, as David Lee Murphy says "Might be a little dust on the bottle... don't let it fool ya as to what's inside".

Having lived in the TC area long enough, I've seen plenty of strange bottles from Bayside sit and sit and sit until some poor sap picks one up and ends up getting a whiff of something said beer never intended (myself included). Alas, them's the breaks, and that's the dangers of buying singles from a place known for its ribs/fish/potato salad/meatballs (For Pete's sake, try the damn meatballs).

I have stopped in here a few times, and will admit it is a friendly store that always have good smelling food in their deli. It is a great place to buy seafood and has a very good selection of wines, but I myself don't care for most wines. As for beer it's ok if you are buying a macro, but those you can buy anywhere that sells beer. I think when it comes to trying new beers and going back to the craft beers I recently started to enjoy I think I'll stick with the Beverage Company and Jack's Market.

I stopped into this store briefly while on my way to Turtle Creek Casino. The store had a deli and small produce section. There wine selection looked real good and seemed to be one of the main focuses of the store, but I don't know anything about wine. They had quite a selection of German, Belgian, and British beers sold as singles. Some of the British beers I've never even heard of or seen elsewhere before. Their American craft singles seem to be priced a little lower than other beer stores that I've been to. I wish I would have had more time to be doing beer shopping because it was a pretty nice store.

These guys are a friendly little store. They don't have huge choices, but perhaps 50-75 micros. Their prices are average to slightly higher than average. The service is average. The employees cater more to wine-buyers and don't really know alot about the beer they sell. You can find some interesting Germans, Belgians, Unibrou's, and American micros here.
