Admit it, sometimes you want diner food. Nothing fancy, just good food. Breakfast is great, omelets, hash browns, pancakes, biscuits and gravy.

We ate breakfast at the Bayview and it was fantastic! The portions were generous and the food cooked to perfection. I had the best scrambled eggs and bacon. The staff was friendly and prices reasonable. I recommend it.

Probably the worst restaurant experience we've had in 10 years. First off, the chowder was just barely over body temperature. Waitress grudgingly nuked it for another minute. My granddaughters shrimp & chips was laughable - gobs of French fries dwarfing 6 tiny SALAD SHRIMP covered...More

My wife and I had lunch here on our anniversary. It’s a clean, nice, local place. The food was good but in my opinion the prices were all a little high. Overall it was a good experience and I would recommend it.

Yes on Friday and Saturday night they have a prime rib special. You can also get steak 7 nights a week. Dinner starts at 4:30 I think. Might be 4.
