“Do your research before going!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We went to the Bay House last week and this week. We were hoping the 2nd time would be a pleasant dining experience. Not so. We read the reviews and they do not match up with our dining experience. Please do not go here for a fine dining experience. Food was below stand and overpriced. The manager was roaming around but did not check in on us which is fine, I am sure he had more important things to do. Extremely disappointed!

“Fresh seafood at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This was my 5th time at Bay House. We sat in the lounge area this time. While I prefer the dining room the lounge is very nice and it is close to the seafood bar where it all happens so good fun. We know the staff there and they are just so special from Chef to the servers. Had the Crab Bar Plateau to start with oysters, shrimp, crab claws, crab salad, etc. Just great. We were a party of 7 and had just about everything on the menu. Nothing ever disappoints. Be sure to have the Lobster & Jonah Crab Pot Pie.
We especially enjoy eating or just having drinks outside in front of the place. They have a firepit which is great in winter and the outside deck looking over the river in the back is great too. Go to http://www.bayhousenaples.com/#about
Must make reservations as this place is jumpin all year round.

“Really, really good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

It had been many years since I last dined here - I'm glad we came back. The food was outstanding from the fresh oysters to the entree's and dessert - everyone raved about their meals. We were four couples celebrating 2 anniversaries. We brought our own wine ($20 corkage fee per bottle which is about standard) At first the reception we got was slow and in attentive - however I spoke to the manager right away and everything was fine after that. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting or living in Naples!

“A beautiful place for a romantic dinner...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We were sent here on a recommendation from our concierge at the Naples Bay Resort. We were not disappointed at all. The food was outstanding, the service was prompt without being intrusive on a couple dining out. I had the lobster and jonah crab souffle...this baked creation that arrives in a jumbo casserole (enough for two seriously!) and it is a bite of southern cooking heaven. The raw bar list is extensive and they clearly take pride in their fresh selection list. We had a lovely table right up on the window that overlooks a basin waterway and in the evening they underlight it so you can see in to the bay nicely.
We did not go in but they have a raw bar attached next door and it looked like a very nice set up and several people seemed to be having a great time sitting at a fresh serve shuckers bar where they put the oysters right up on the plate as they open them. Seemed very nice as well.
