We are used to more cutting-edge restaurants but this was a nice small-town "fancy restaurant" - other diners were clearly there celebrating their anniversaries etc. Food was delicious if not exactly "fusion cuisine" except that my steak, which I clearly ordered medium-rare, was quite medium-well-done. Everything else was fine and the staff was attentive and charming, including to my 9-... More

Wife and I dropped in for dinner tonight. Seated at great table with view of bay and sunset. Our waiter, Max, was attentive and knowledgable. I had the crab cakes special, which was cooked perfect and crab, not filler. Wife had the salmon, also cooked perfectly. Both came with a corn potato pepper side that was also great. Table had...

Made reservations for my daughter and me on our all-out mother-daughter school shopping trip weekend out-of-town. Waiter pulls out your chair and lays a linen napkin in your lap. A fresh, long-stemmed single red rose sits in a vase on the table. Wine list is a 1 inch thick binder - 50 pages! Menu is made fresh daily, ala carte,... More

It has been about 20 years since we have eaten at this wonderful restaurant on the central Oregon Coast. It has been recently completely renovated and it is a very nice place to visit for any dinner or special occasion. Our special visit was for my wife's birthday. After a tasty pre-dinner cocktail we ordered their filet steak menu item.... More

It is enjoyable to go to a restaurant that cares about your experience, exceptional service and exquisite food. This is one of our favorite places to go and get spoiled.

What's not to like ? The food was absolutely delicious, the presentation of the dishes very pretty and they had an outstanding wine selection. The table decoration was very nice (fresh rose, candle) and the view on the water wonderful with a terrific sunset. And the staff could not have been friendlier. This restaurant made our night !

We were recently in Lincoln City for my wife's birthday and wanted to have a special dinner. We read the reviews on Bay House, and frankly doubted that it could be as good as some of the reviews suggested - we were wrong. We phoned the day before to get a reservation and the host was charming. We actually arrived... More

The only thing I dislike is the pricetag. Service, food and atmosphere are top notch. Like the title says, save some money and splurge on a nice anniversary dinner. Grab dinner and propose later on the beach. Have a happy birthday meal to remember. Great place for such a small community.

Neighbor to Neighbor dinner in the bar area is a fantastic value. The view of the water, the service and the quality of the food are terrific. Be sure to order the charcuterie!! and also hope they are serving the corn and salmon soup. Service is wonderful and the owner is welcoming and attentive. Don't miss this place--the N to... More

My husband and I selected this restaurant to celebrate our 23rd anniversary and were very happy with our choice. Almost every other meal we had during 5 days in Lincoln City was overpriced and terrible, with service to match. It's no surprise that The Bay House does not advertise in the flyers and magazines that are widely distributed in this... More
