It baffles me how a restaurant can serve a portion that amounts to two bites. Do they think everyone eats like a bird? I'm not saying the food isn't good, just that there isn't enough of it. Of course the view is great, but I don't go to dinner just for the view. This place just didn't do it for... More

Seven years ago my wife and I discovered this little gem of a restaurant for ourselves almost as an accident, while staying in Depoe Bay. We were so knocked out by the place we came back the next night. Couldn't say "no" to the food, especially a crab appetizer with a honey-wasabe sorbet. Nirvana on a plate! Fast forward to... More

Initially we were sad to not get a table in the dining room last night since they were all booked. Then we saw the view and 3-course options on the menu in the bar and were thrilled. The cocktails were delicious, the food incredible, the service top notch, and you can't beat the view. We will definitely be back, have... More

Gorgeous views, fantastic food, good service. We've been coming here for a few years and the meal has never disappointed. We ate here a few weeks ago and had another great experience. The appetizers (steamed clams), salad course, and main courses (crab cakes & duck), were all delicious and well executed. The accompanying wine was excellent. The only miss was... More

We absolutely loved the Bay House for our special newlywed dinner!!!!!!!! Even setting up the reservation you could tell how great a place this was. When we got there our table wasn't quite ready so they seated us at the bar for a drink. Which were fantastic!!! Taste & serving size was the best we've ever had. The ones I... More

Good fortune has shined light on me, I've eaten at some of the best restaurants all over the world. The Bay House is among the best. Small restaurants with huge wine lists often speak to the dedication of ownership, a thriving passion for food, and the wine that goes with it. If you have the temerity to serve a $X00... More

We have been wanting to try the Bay House for the last several years and finally had the opportunity last night. We came in on a Sunday evening at 5:45 and the dining room was booked. I had heard about the Neighbor to Neighbor menu available in the bar which offers a three course dinner for $25. The bar still... More

We had not been to this restaurant for many year but as we had fond memories of it, decided to return. We found that it undergone substantial change physically and in food service and cost. We decided to try it anyway and were lucky enough to be able to take advantage of a late cancellation as they were fully booked.... More

My husband and I spent a romantic night at the coast and this restaurant was great. The view was outstanding and the restaurant staff was friendly and helpful. The food/drinks were great. We had a great time.

We ate here for my birthday in June. The service was pretty good and staff was great. We had drinks in the bar before dinner, it was very quiet and had a nice, comfortable feel. Then came dinner. The beet salad was beautiful, but bland, needing just a hint of some kind of dressing on it, even though the beets... More
