Kelle makes an amazing margarita that we have dubbed a "kellerita". Yummy! We tried the Mediterranean pizza, which was fairly new on the menu. The mix of toppings was perfect. The crust was great. And Kelle is very friendly and gave us the best service!

I had the halibut, which was most excellent. The creme brule was the best I've ever had. Ever. And my server was super-nice.

A motel restaurant on the sparsely populated southern Oregon coast that is great? And it is innovative, sophisticated and well staffed? Where do you see a grilled Caesar, a beauty. Local seafood (esp the justly famous dungenous crab? ) Wonderful. And should you have Kellee...More

This restaurant is attached to the Best Western Pierpoint Inn but it is a separate entity. It has a great view of the river and bridge. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

Had dinner here last night. Salad was large and super fresh. Great brushetta and long island ice tea. Special was spaghetti with meatballs. Very tasty and plentiful. Good service.

Love the added spice to this favorite winter soup. Red blend wine was also a delight! Only one server made the wait for service a bit longer than I would have liked but an extra glass of red on the house was nice compensation.

Thank you for dining with us at the Bay View Bistro. We are pleased you enjoyed the made-to-order Cioppino with the little extra spice the way you like it. Making every selection when order allows us to customize the dish to each individual palate.

Description
Nestled above the Siuslaw River, the Bay View Bistro is located inside the Best Western Pier Point Inn but this is NOT your average hotel restaurant. Come for the spectacular view, but stay for the delicious food and superior service. The Bay View Bistro has a cozy, beautiful bar and dining room overlooking Old Town Florence, the historic Siuslaw Bridge and Siuslaw River. We have a wonderful happy hour, early bird specials and chalkboard specials changing daily. Reservations Recommended.
