    Good place to spend a day
    Bayside is the standard outdoor mall with plenty of places to eat. Overall it's good for about a 1/2 of a day of activity that you can stretch in to a whole day with the attractions surrounding it. There are all of the normal touristy things to do right around the mall like the ferris wheel, ride the jet boats, tiki-bar, sunset cruises and so on. Overall, you'll have a good time if you do it right.

    Bayside fun
    Open-air shopping and entertainment destination. You can find everything from clothing and accessories to jewellery and souvenirs. There is a variety of dining options, mostly casual eateries. Several excursions available around the waterside.

    Bayside Marketplace
    Nice variety of shops and food venues available at the Bayside Marketplace. Within walking distance from many local hotels in the Biscayne Blvd area. But just beware of the extreme heat and humidity of Miami (especially during the day). So be cautious if you don't do well in the heat.

    Nice to spend some time. Always plenty going on
    Had heard good things about Bayside. Nice place for taking pictures and walking around. Will have a lot of tourist movement. Area where cruise ship passengers go to shop. Can get pretty crowded, depends how you feel about being in crowded areas If you’re in your own transportation, own car or a rental be prepared to pay $20-40 for parking depending on how long you want to be there

    Bayside Marketplace Has It All
    Visiting Miami for a week, visited Bayside Marketplace a few times and we love it. Great food, fun boat rides, the ferris wheel, shopping, and the park are all in one place so there’s something for everyone. Definitely a “must do” item to have on your Miami itinerary.

    Lunch before boarding cruise ship
    Shopping, excursion area near cruise Port. Most restaurants/shops don't open till 10 or 11. Good place to hang out before cruise boarding. About 6 places to eat, nice beach clothing shops. Boating excursions also leave from this dock. Nice view of bridges, ships, Key Biscayne from here. Too far to walk to ship from here. Take a $10 uber or free shuttle.

    Perfect for some shopping and a meal if time is short in Miami
    We had one night in Miami on the way home from Costa Rica to the UK so chose to spend it near Bayside so we could have a morning shopping and some lunch before heading to the airport. It’s a lovely environment for a chilled few hours with a good range of restaurants and we particularly wanted to visit Ralph Lauren and Bath & Bodyworks! If we’d had time we would have taken a boat trip too.

    Don’t miss it !!!
    A must stop while in Miami. Love the fun vibe, the shops and the food in Bayside. Even though I arrived close to when it closed I was still able to enjoy every second spend there.

    Great hangout space for friends
    We were in town for a Virgin Voyage cruise and needed a place to grab a bite to eat before retiring to our hotel and this was the perfect location! There is more to do here than just eat! You can go on short boat cruises, have a cocktail or 3, lol, meet up and catch up with friends! That's exactly what I did! I met up with some friends, had good food, cocktails, and enjoyed the view from the restaurant. Prime location for Miami! Can't go wrong here but pack some patience for the parking garage! My suggestion...UBER!

    We will be back again.
    My parents and I, recently came back from our Miami trip. May I say this was the best place for people who want to go shopping, enjoy a meal with great vibes and views. We loved the atmosphere and the views. Highly recommend.

Maybe because I know what this place use to be many years ago that it was so off-putting!

I have never seen so much junk stores anywhere. What’s with all the cheap luggage places.?
Are they hoping for an unfortunate cruise ship passenger whose luggage was lost ??
Vendors trying to offer free cheap cosmetic samples to try and lure you in to their stores, don’t go, you’ll never get out.

All the restaurants did not look good. Just so disappointing on all levels. Levels the shops are on and level of quality.

What a waste of time just going there. The only thing this place is good for is getting some exercise walking.
That was almost a problem as a pretty large iguana was in the grass and I didn’t see it.
My husband did and steered me away.

If this is the #1 place in Miami out of 657 no less !! Then Miami is in serious trouble !!

After a morning of traveling, lunch was at Bubba Gump. Disappointingly, Bubba Gump food is not good. It was all very overcooked. The fish, calamari, & shrimp were all dry & hard. Also, I don’t believe the potatoes are real, despite them having red skins in them. Go elsewhere, Bubba Gump is not the place you want to eat at. It’s shameful.

However, Fat Tuesday drinks were delicious. All adults in my group were delighted by their liquor choice & souvenir cups. Pricey, but worth every dime. Those floaters…yessss.

The small empanada stand was delicious. The service was with a smile, despite the heat outdoors. Good treats. Give the empanadas a try.

People watching & the view at Bayside was very entertaining.

Hard Rock Cafe for dinner was good; typical Hard Rock eatery. Their burgers are always good.

Just an enormous shopping and retail place. No real character. Very noisy with competing music systems
We only went there to get on cruise boat

In Miami a day prior to our Virgin Voyages cruise and spend the afternoon and evening at Bayside. Staying at Holiday Inn right across the street, this was ideal spot to grab food after our flight arrived and we got to the hotel. Plenty of food options, shopping and things to do here during the day and evening.

OMG I loveeee Bayside! I grew up in Miami and I haven't been back for about 20 years- I missed the vibe! It's such a beautiful place full of shops, bars, and every kind of food you can imagine. We had stuffed arepas for lunch, followed by a (really strong) happy hour drink at Lola Bar, and then boarded a replica pirate ship to tour Millionaire's Row. It was such a great day- I wish we didn't have to get back on our cruise ship! If you're in town, def check this place out at night. You will love the lights, music, Ferris wheel, and people watching. It's a fun time for couples, friends, and families!

Very touristy, shops are mid, not great food options. Traffic is horrible, as it's right next to the arena. I would recommend going to a more authentic area in the city to see Miami

Disappointed in the place. It came up as the Number 1 place for shopping on Trip Advisor, but it is mostly T-Shirt and Sweatshirts stalls. There are a few decent bars plus the Hard Rock Cafe and Margarita Ville.

Nice shopping experience with plenty of department store brands and many different restaurants serving worldwide cuisines and bars to choose from. The main meeting point and ticket booths for various tours in and around Miami. A must visit!
