To start, they know how to make a proper aviator martini! The bread and herbed butter melts in your mouth. The beet salad was one of the best I've ever had. Then the soup, awwwwwww, Creamy Garlic was a smooth warm wonderful bowl of delight- dipping the bread into it worked really well😋 Then our dinners - hmmmm, where do... More

We were celebrating an anniversary and emailed for a reservation. Steve (owner) called us and we were set for a perfect evening with a very nice atmosphere with attentive, professional service from all of the waitstaff. Both our dinners were done perfectly with each plate ingredient superbly flavored, showing creativity in the kitchen. We would highly recommend the Bay House... More

This was our second visit to the Bay House for dinner. Our first experience, about a year ago, had us in the main dining room. The food was exquisite and the service by Steve was impeccable. So we had very high expectations when we returned. We decided to try the 3-course dinner for $25 in the lounge, vs the $76... More

Stephen is a welcoming and gracious host while the wait staff is friendly and top notch. We like to go to the Neighbor to Neighbor dinner where the same gourmet, beautifully presented food served in the dining room is available in the lounge (with a view of the bay) at less cost. Casual attire is perfectly acceptable. The ladies room... More
