Every day 8:00 AM - 9:00 PM


Vern’s Bayside Restaurant and Lounge offers sit-down American dining with big, comforting portions and something on the menu for everyone. There is a bar downstairs and patio dining as well. The best thing about Vern’s, though, may be the view from the bay windows. Families like to come to Vern’s Bayside and the tables near the water are full of gawking children. Even at night some customers insist on waiting to sit at a window table, despite the fact that the view of the water is completely black. Or maybe the best thing about Vern’s is the fact that it is conveniently located in the middle of Eastsound and works well as a backup restaurant when other places aren’t open or happen to be closed on unexpected days.

Vern's menu offers burgers, Mexican food, sandwiches, salads and "bayside baskets." The baskets include portions of fish and chips, chicken, prawns or clams. One can even order a basket of "calamari steaks." The range of menu items is so extreme that you should have no trouble finding something that will suit your mood. A separate menu offers higher priced entrees with Coho or King Salmon or Steak and Prawns. Most entrées include clam chowder, cheese potatoes with onions and a side of veggies. This is not the kind of place that will leave you hungry. Many beverages are also available, from rootbeer floats made with Henry Weinhardt’s Rootbeer to hand-dipped milkshakes. Mixed drinks and beer are available from the bar.

Breakfast is served until 3 p.m. daily, which is good news considering many places in town close for breakfast by 11:00 a.m. "Famous" omelets are on the menu as well as any other American breakfast item you could want. If you can’t find your favorite food on Vern's menu, then you probably won’t find it anywhere on the island.
