Description: 18 Bay is a Chef owned and operated restaurant. We serve a four course Italian inspired Chefs menu that is a direct reflection of the local markets. Dinner begins with four different antipasti, followed by a handmade pasta, a choice of entree and dessert. The menu changes every week. We make handcrafted cocktails using organic syrups, serve local wine including two on tap, as well as international wines from small producers. We offer a vegetarian menu and accommodate for any allergies or aversions. We look forward to sharing with you our interpretation of the best of our terroir.

An adult restaurant not often found at a summer resort island.
Staff is very attentive, concerned about allergies and dislikes. Will amend if you don’t like something.
Four courses all beautifully displayed and tasty.
Meal was not rushed . A real pleasure.
Menu is prix fine and worth every penny

We were happy to get a reservation at 18 Bay based upon the consistently positive reviews. The price fixed chef's selections offers you a tasting plate of 4 different pre-selected items beautifully displayed on a special 4 quadrant plate. Our server thoughtfully asked if we had any allergies and graciously switched 2 of my four options. My wife and I were impressed ! f
For your main course you could choose betweem a small piece of Filet mignon Halibut. Our filets were good. When Jimmy, the dining room manager/ restaurant veteran came over to ask how everything was I was honest, telling him both of our meals were very good but my manhattan was made incorrectly. He offered to buy me another but I declined his gracious offer. Two minutes later he returned with 2 glasses of champagne. WELL DONE!

We hadn't been here in a while and we're so happy to find that the quality of the food hasn't dropped at all. In fact, it was probably the best meal we've had there.

We love the ambiance and the format. They're always great about accommodating reasonable dietary restrictions.

The pasta was an unexpected combination, with jalapeño, but it was delicious.

And the wine pairings are always perfect.

Truly unique food, pasta in the shape of scallop shells in a scallop and wine sauce. AMAZING!
The kind of place that you hope for but rarely encounter. BEYOND OUR HIGH EXPECTATIONS.
