Top notch food!

Truly a foodie's top choice. Some beautiful views, love happy hour in the bar, and lunch and dinners are truly superb.

The view was really wonderful and service was very good and comfortable. The food was just ok, but reasonably priced.

Gorgeous view, endearing service, and sophisticated presentation. Especially recommended: beet salad, vegetarian pasta, duck with lentils. (Less delicious: clams overwhelmed by chorizo.)

We arrived in Lincoln City last Saturday and began calling around for a dinner reservation. The places on our list were all full. Upon calling The Bay House they said the lounge opened at 5:00 and it was first come first served. We agreed that many of the bar menu items sounded appealing. We arrived as the "open" light was...

In the lounge, there is a popular three course meal. Everyone was ordering this. The lesser known deal is the full pour wine pairing. We had three terrific wines and outstanding service. Favorites in our group included the rich roasted corn chowder and perfectly cooked scallops. Not to be outdone, the live musician was not only talented but personable to... More

Even the best restaurants have an off night, perhaps that is what we ran into. My wife ordered the broiled salmon, I the filet. Her salmon was raw in the center.. While Van our server made it right with an entire new dish, this should not happen at this type of establishment. My filet was OK, but not much flavor.... More

It is extremely hard to staff at the Oregon Coast. Especially at a 5 star restaurant where if you pay the fee, you expect excellence. The Bay House delivers. Every time. Period paragraph. Whether you slink into upscale bar and eat off their exemplary bar menu (which is better than most restaurants dinner menus), or pay the freight and eat... More

We were eating lunch at a dive and my wife picked up a local "to do" paper to read while waiting on our food. We go out to the Oregon coast every year but never knew about Bay House. she saw an ad that showed it to be a AAA Four Diamond restaurant. We immediately made reservations and went on... More

Fine dining with a friendly atmosphere! My go to restaurant for special occasions or stop by the bar on a Friday night and you will most likely hear some good music. Every Friday you can enjoy "Doible Bubble" happy hour. My favorite is to sip on a Blackberry Margarita and watch the sunset on the Siletz Bay. The small plates... More
