Nice Restaurant, Amazing Sunset

We've been to Wildwood every summer for years so I'm not sure why we didn't know about this place. Large restaurant, right on bay. Good food. The night we went they had some radio station there giving away prizes. didn't have to buy tickets they were giving them out as you arrived. We will... read more

We've been to Wildwood every summer for years so I'm not sure why we didn't know about this place. Large restaurant, right on bay. Good food. The night we went they had some radio station there giving away prizes. didn't have to buy tickets they were giving them out as you arrived. We will definitely be back this summer.

This place is a far cry from the former Mariner's Inn at the same location but it serves as an option for families with children. Food is average at best, service is spotty, noisy depending upon the size of the parties near you.

I remember this place when it was still Mariners Inn and IMO the Bayview Inn has always been a good! It's a fun, loud family place and fills up quickly. It doesn't offer a snooty upscale fine dining experience because that's not what the place is about. The food is usually always good, the staff is great, the menu is... More

Bayview is my wife's and I favorite place to eat and drink in the Wildwood area. They have the best wings anywhere and their ribs are great also. The beer is always ice cold and the atmosphere is great. Never had a bad meal here.

Nothing fancy, but good food. It's sort of old fashioned, lots of fried seafood, nothing really fresh. We had fried oysters that were cooked with a corn meal batter rather than flour; they were crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We settled for salad but would have liked to have more vegetable options.

Arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday evening in September. It was not that busy. For a place that advertises a great view of the bay, we expected a reasonable and casual place for a light meal. It is one large, noisy, boisterous place for the local folks to have as a "watering hole". The NE chowder was chalky and... More
