Before heading to the Bay View Terrace I went on Tripadvisor, read the reviews and disregarded what people had wrote and decided to give it a shot. BIG MISTAKE! We waited 45 minutes for our COLD (not supposed to be ) appetizers to arrive. At this point we were 3/4 into the bottle of wine we had brought. 20 minutes... More

This is the first time I really wrote a review telling people to avoid a restaurant. I have had bad experiences before but never quite this bad. We went today for breakfast. Got a great table outside right on the bay. Beautiful location, great view. What could go wrong, right? First off we waited almost 10 minutes for the server... More

The view is terrific. Go for the view, not the food, except that the double pane window by our table had a leak and was fogged between the panes. The iced tea did not taste like it was freshly brewed but rather from a mix. Huge plate of fried calamari appetizer ($11) that turned out to be rather salty with... More

I originally dined her way back in the summer of 2009. Recently relocated to the NJ Shore, I dined with family in May 2014. Both experiences were very good, but my review is (fairly) based on my most recent visit. I'm quite sure the gentleman that greeted and seated us is the owner and the same man who was there... More

Located directly on Barnegat Bay, Bay View Terrace does have great views but that was all I can say that was good about my visit here. Prices are in the $20 - $40 range. Also BYOB. We ordered the Blacked Mahi and Grilled Red Snapper. Both were horrible. The Mahi was extremely over-spiced and over-cooked, not sure it really was... More

We came here with a group of 17 people. Amazingly, we had one waiter who also had other tables. What is even more amazing is his service lacked for nothing. Most of the dishes are in the $20-$25 range. On a scale of 10, I'd say the food is about 7. If you want great views of Barnegat Bay, good... More

Great view, nice atmosphere. Food was good but a little too pricey for that place. Kid friendly, sort of. Too expensive to bring kids. Leave them home

Forget about our meal, we were ready to ask for a to go container when it finally did arrive, as our children were ready to go to... More

We have visited Bay View Terrace many times over the years and the food was consistently good and carefully prepared and served. It seems like this restaurant is under new ownership since the chef and waitstaff were so poor and dramatically changed from the good food and service of the past. When we visited in March 2013 the quality of... More
