The limited menu gave neither of us a dish we were really excited to order. That's the reason for only four stars. What they did, they did really well. I had the duck breast - without doubt the best I ever had. It came with a luscious carrot-cardamon puree, wonderfully seasoned lentils, and Brussels sprouts. I started with the beet... More

This place has amazing food. Very nice location and view. The laddie's room is a must see. The nicest I have been in. If you are in Lincoln City, try out The Bay House. Reservations are needed!!!

To say that The Bay House is an excellent dining experience is selling it short. The proper word should be stupendous! The food is out of this world and the service is impeccable. Everyone, from the owner to our waiter, was very friendly. Speaking of our waiter, he was knowledgeable without the arrogance which can often be experienced with some... More

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at this restaurant on a 2 day getaway to Lincoln City. I had the clam and chorizo appetizer (shared with my wife) followed by a beet salad. My entree was the beef medallions dish. The waiter served a complimentary amuse bouche before the meal as well. All of the food was excellent,... More

Hello, Philip H.! Thank you for visiting The Bay House, and thank you for your kind words regarding your experience here. I am sorry that the beef prepared for you was, "a bit overdone," but had we known at the time, we would have been happy to prepare another steak for you. The chef is generally spot-on with regard to... More

We had the duck, which was perfectly done and beautifully presented. Others in our group had the salmon and the beef tenderloin. Raves all around. Extensive wine list. The house Cabernet Savignon was excellent and reasonable. Friendly, unobtrusive service.

Amazing chinook salmon dinner with vegetables cooked to perfection. Raspberry sorbet and coffee to top it off. I highly recommend and will be... More

My husband and I had a great meal by sharing his beef filet and my salmon. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. From the owner to the waiter to the bar tender our every need was taken care of with great skill. The beautiful view was just the icing on the cake. Thanks for a terrific evening.
