had Sunday dinner there last week and had a fabulous meal. The roast lamb was delicious (I grew up eating lamb and know the good from the not so good). Roasted to perfection but the absolute highlight was the lobster bisque. I swear there was a quarter of a lobster tail in my cup of soup which was so thick... More

We used Trip Adviser to find this place and before going we asked some local people about this place. They highly recommended it. It did not disappoint. The food was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The service was outstanding and everyone who worked at the restaurant was very friendly. If we lived in the area we would go here often....

We came on a Friday afternoon and it was busy but they seated us right away. Friendly service. Great food! We had the hummus, falafel and cous cous appetizer, the mouth watering steamed oysters (I'm not usually a fan but these were incredible). Then had a great eggplant and goat meal (again not too fond of goat but this was... More

This place is just the best deal for delicious gourmet food. I tried a new dish on the menu with each visit. I looked forward to the next visit. The service is great, and the staff very friendly. They cater to gluten free as well. You will not be disappointed.

The Walleye fish done cajun style was very good with glass of wine. Cup of clam chowder soup for appetizer hit the spot.

Bay Leaf is a little quaint Cafe' in Spearfish that has a large variety of eclectic food which is mainly focused on French Cuisine along with many vegetarian options. I love that they have a daily lunch menu that changes with the seasons and day of the week. Fridays they offer several wonderful seafood choices and the New England Clam... More

We wanted something different - and something good. We got it at the Bay Leaf Cafe. We had the Alaskan Seafood Platter. For dessert we had the red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. Presentation, recipe, service, serving size - all spot on. I recommend.
