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 Restaurant, Florida Eats, NuMex, Cephas 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).
