Good food, nice view, great entertainment

We went with friends in December, so we ate in side. Food was fine, the BYOB makes it very reasonable and the entertainment by Billy was wonderful. Will go back in the spring.

I have to start by saying that I've written numerous reviews of restaurants, and they've all stated they are fine places to eat. I guess there's always a first time. We live in Barnegat, NJ and frequent various eateries in town there and neighboring towns, like Waretown. We've been to the Bay View Terrace a few times, and while the... More

Some friends wanted to see someone singing at this restaurant so we went with them. Great location in waretown right on Barneget Bay. Great views! The food was excellent. We had very good calamari as an appetizer, then dinner of cedar plank salmon, salads, soup, pasta with shrimp. Everything was delicious.

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
