We have now eaten at the Bay House for two anniversary dinners. The food, the service and the ambience are first rate. For a special occasion I would definitely recommend the Bay House.

The Bay House has everything in a fabulous dining experience – great atmosphere, first class service and the best food I’ve had since Portland’s Genoa years ago. So this was a special evening! To start out the Bay House has a wonderful location right on Siletz Bay. We were seated by a window so even though it was dark, we... More

Went for cocktails and some small bites. A bit over-priced ($17 for 2 scallops!) not to mention they forgot that order and brought it out only after inquiring about it. Nice atmosphere.

Hello, jsd5050! Thank you for visiting our lounge at The Bay House for drinks and small plates. We’ve worked hard to make it the second-best restaurant in Lincoln City (right behind our dining room!), but it is, in the end, our bar. While we usually do a better job of impressing our guests, I am so sorry for not making... More

Good food and drinks. Interesting menu and the 'Plating' of the food it as seen on the cooking competition shows.... expensive but pretty and tasty!!

There are 3 gourmet restaurants on the Oregon coast, the Bay House, Beck and the Stephanie Inn. This is rich nouveau French inspired food. Wine list is as good as anywhere. Non descript fromthe outside, back of restaurant with views is nice. Not for kids. Lounge area very classy. This is a special place.

As some have mentioned this is a higher priced restaurant but delivers at that level more than many. We spent our wedding anniversary dinner here and were treated very well by the owner and our server. One caution - the food is very rich and we included soup with our meal - the soup was wonderful but by the end... More

Hands down one of the best meals we have ever had. The Bay house is truly a dining experience. If you are looking for that special place on the coast to dine, look no further.

The restaurant is lovely but pricey. If you go choose to eat small plates in the bar, you still get the view and great service without the expense.

Since we are musicians, we love any place that supports live music, and we had the MOST DELICIOUS dinner in their cozy lounge while listening to a pianist. Outstanding service - loved the owner as well! Dessert was scrumptious. We will definitely be back to dine in their lovely restaurant.
