“Great Place for Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

After staying at the coast for a week, we were tired of seafood and tried the Bay 839 for steak. They have an amazing steak for the price. We love their kids menu as all the kids items are homemade. Pizza dough made from scratch, mac and cheese homemade, not a box. Great prices for kids too. And the view is excellent, right out on the bay front.

“Great on two separate days...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We visited Newport from Seattle, and were pleasantly surprised to find this great spot right on the water in the harbor. The staff were smart, helpful, and very professional, but the seafood was superb. With this place in Newport, I wish I lived closer. But if you want a great meal, casual setting, and really reasonable prices, and you are anywhere in the Newport area, you can't lose here. We went for lunch one day, and dinner the next. The fresh seafood was as good as anywhere we have eaten...and that is saying a lot!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

I have been going to Bay 839 since it opened and have always loved their atmosphere, view, infusion cocktails and small plates. Their service is always impeccable; friendly, informative, and attentive! Their new Hawaiian-Asian infusion menu is amazing! The Bolgogi is a must try along with their Kona coffee creme brulee! Go for the view from every table and stay for excellent service, but you'll keep going back for the delicious food!

“Date night perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Both of us had soup. Yum. Two different types of soup, both tasty. I had the tuna special which was perfectly cooked and the rice that accompanied it nicely. We had two servers check on us which was nice but not obtrusive. I want to try the fish tacos the next time I go.

“Terrible food...lousy service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I ate there over a year ago and the cocktails were fabulous and the small plate menu was great....ate there yesterday and was completely disappointed. Our wings were tasteless, the I had kaliua pork pizza...pork was extremely salty and my friend had the grilled chicken wrap that had this overwhelming sweet sauce, that was dripping all over the plate, she could only eat half because it was so sweet. The worst part of this whole tragic experience was the mojito that I ordered which honestly tasted like carbonated water with a hint of lime. I sent it back to see if they would enhance the flavor a bit and it honestly came back worse. I drank less than half and gave up.. Our waitress was less than impressive and acted like she didn't want to be there. Overall great view of the water, but there are so other great restaurants to choose from on the bayfront!

I would like to first off thank you for choosing Bay 839, regardless of your experience here. We are very proud of the new Pacific Island Fusion menu we released, and have not received any other complaints. That being said, I apologize on behalf of the staff for the experience that you perceived as sub par. I, as the executive chef, will take a look into your comments, and if a problem is found, will correct it immediately. Once again, thank you for dining and we appreciate any comments we receive, as we are dedicated to continually improving ourselves as a business.
