St. Pete seafood joint Baytenders has closed

In early October, Baytenders was temporarily closed for "vacation/construction." Now, unfortunately, the restaurant has shut down for good.

When CL called Baytenders, a recording played, "No routes found." 

The seafood-heavy concept made its debut in February 2018, serving up a selection of steamed king crab, mussels and freshly shucked gulf oysters. With a surge of restaurant openings over the last few months, it was inevitable to see some make a quick exit. In the last few months, we've said goodbye to Le Boudoir RestaurantFlorida EatsNuMexCephas and Amigos Tortilla Bar (among a handful of others).

We will patiently wait until a new restaurant snags Baytenders' former space that hosts an outdoor patio(with or without keeping the massive ship steering wheel).
