The Bay House had come highly recommended - so I decided to take my wife there on our trip to the coast for our anniversary. The staff was fantastic - the host was really friendly and the waiter was attentive and knowledgeable but easy going. They even sprinkled "Happy Anniversary" confetti on our table top - small but thoughtful touch.... More

From the moment we walked in, we were treated like special guests. Everyone was exceedingly courteous, and the food and location was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this for any special occasion.

I recently had an extraordinary dinner at the Bay House with two of my friends. Steve was incredibly attentive to our special needs, the service was terrific, and the food and its presentation were stellar. I’ll remember the little extras and the beef for many years to come, as will my dining partners their racks of lamb. We three have... More

We ate in the lounge and ordered from the neighbor to neighbor menu. This has to be the best value on the coast, only $25.00 per person, 3 courses of some of the nicely plated good I have ever experienced. The service was impeccable even in the lounge. The owner, Steve, was welcoming and friendly without being overbearing. If you... More

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
