We have dined here many times over the past few years. After their closing about a year ago, and the reopening, we had been quite disappointed. As a result, it has been a while since we were here. A recent TA review prompted us to revisit. We had lunch there today, and the service and food were quite good. Pacing... More

This place had a rough start when they first opened a couple months ago, but they have really dialed it in since then. I have eaten here with my family at least 5 times, and the last 4 have been superb (first time was a bit rocky, as the new staff didn't seem to have it all together). The short... More

I eat rare Cheeseburgers, it was well done, gave it to my dog. no one asked to recook it, callamari was pasty & with wimpy sauce, makes a classic caesar salad without anchovies, dressing was blah &...bread was stale. Management was not concerned..

This is really good food Ina neighborhood restaurant, with the bonus of a good view of Malletts Bay. I had one of my favorites, roasted veggie quesadilla, which is listed as a small plate, but very generous. My husband had the Caribbean pork hop, served over black beans and orzo with a wonderful sweet spicy sauce. He said it was... More

A friend of my wife from their high school days invited us to visit over lunch. Of several choices, we hadn't been to Bayview and the idea of a view of the marina especially appealed to us. Outdoor seating was plentiful and spacious under umbrellas and did indeed present a wide bouyant view of Mallets Bay. In addition, the seating... More

We came here with friends as their guests and I felt embarrassed for them and to be honest we all came close to walking away. The service was awful, staff just weren't trained, we ordered drinks which took about 20 mins to arrive and the waitress didn't know who had ordered what and then told me they didn't have the...

Noise level high. It was like sound bursting off ceiling and service slow. The outside is very nice view

I'd heard from friends that we should try this place. We finally got a group of us together and, wow, we were sooo disappointed. Food took forever to come out....waitress seemed clueless. Mac and cheese was tasteless. Shepherds pie was worse. Burger was a skimpy overdone patty for 12 bucks. Sure, the view is nice, but don't waste your time.

Why not watch the sunset over Malletts Bay, drink Vermont micro-brews, enjoy attentive service, and eat comfort food? Life is good! Menu options reflect a culinary school trained chef: truffle oil, balsamic reduction, etc. What have I been waiting for?

Since Bayview got new ownership it's interesting now. The food is subpar. The atmosphere is fine. And some of the stuff on the menu doesn't exist anymore. And the stuff that does is quite lacking what it used to be.Time to find a new place to eat.
