Really Very Good

We very seldom go to expensive restaurants. We were visiting friends in Lincoln City and they suggested the Bay House, so off we went. It was a Wednesday evening, so there was not much of a crowd.

We first evening we had a fantastic meal with a wonderful view in the main dining room at The Bay House. We had excellent service, an extensive choice of wine, wonderful flavors and presentation of all of the courses we ordered. The owner is on sight, greeting patrons and is very attentive as he checks in on all his guests... More

This review will require a little background. We are from Northern California and are Warrior fans. We made a reservation at The Bay House based upon the reviews at this site. It was game night and we watched the first half in our room at a local Motel. We then proceeded to The Bay House and Steve, the owner, met... More

Light dinner in the lounge was such a great idea. This place is elegant but NOT snobby. The staff treats guests with care and attention -- smooth and seamless. The lounge menu has wonderful small plate choices (plus a very reasonable 3-course meal for $25), cocktails, and an excellent wine list. I enjoyed a Mesclun Salad with a light creamy... More

From the outside we weren't sure, the looks seemed average at best. We drove by at about 7pm on a Saturday and the parking lot was full: good sign. The book in our hotel recommended it as well so we gave it a shot. Because we had been hiking all afternoon and weren't sure about dinner, we didn't make a... More

I discovered this gem of a restaurant via TripAdvisor. I read numerous reviews regaling the peoples experiences. Needless to say I had very high expectations. All of them were exceeded! It's hard to even pinpoint where to start. I don't think I have enough adjectives to fully describe our experience. Wonderful, magnificent, so many different aromas and tastes that just... More

Had a romantic dinner here with my husband while traveling along the coast. The view was lovely and the food was excellent. Nice wine selections too.

First of all, if you're looking for an all you can eat buffet, this is not the place. The Bay House serves a perfect portion, of outstanding food! That includes everything from the light and fluffy bread, with the most rich and creamy butter you'll ever taste, to the dessert at the end of the meal, (FYI, the salted caramel... More

Really nice spot to have a relaxing dinner with a great view. The staff was excellent and the food really good and well presented. We opted for the $25 a head 3 course deal and it was all really good. Had some sort of martini -was $11 , but they brought the whole shaker, so several drinks. A guitar player... More
