We were taken care of personally, professionally and kindly by the staff and seated by a window for a lovely view. The wine list was great. The food was perfectly fine and adequately executed, yet totally unremarkable or memorable.More

It was beyond romantic! The view was to die for and the food was the best I've ever had. The only downfall was when a party of 8 came in and acted as if they were at Denny's and behaved as such. They were loud...More

We enjoyed our meal here. It is a beautiful setting, having a nice meal, a cocktail and watching the sun setting. There was a function on the night we came but we still received good service. Very nice place.More

This was at least the fourth time we've eaten at the Bay House and every visit has been delightful. Steve has always been very pleasant and fun and Peter is amazing. Their Chef puts together the most delicious meals and the view is great too!
