A must for your eating pleasure, great atmosphere very good food. Something for everyone. Place is very large but you could still wait for a table, so call ahead. Game room for kids while you wait is always a plus.

The Bayview has switched hands since last year. The place looks modern and cool. The service was ok. I think they are trying their best. The messed up our order twice and billed it wrong. The menu was tiny and pricey. I Think they really need to think about having kids meals and allowing substitutions for fries. Overall we were... More

This place has changed hands since last summer and I don't think for the better. Have visited twice this season and both times our orders were messed up. I don't know why they removed one of the bars but the place appears to not want you to hang around and drink because there is only one bar where you cannot... More

Hadn't been to Wildwood for a few years and was pleasantly surprised with the new and improved Bayview. It has been lightened and brightened up. So please take to sit anywhere now with great views of the bay. The food got a makeover too. We had really good calamari with a nice sauce a step up from the old plain... More

Spacious , casual restaurant . Varied menu , friendly servers and a casual atmosphere make for a relaxed dinner . Good portions , tasty appetizers and meals . Plenty of parking . Always go with a group and they accomodate us very well. A must for us while we're at the ashore.

We reserved ahead of time with a large group during the off season. The servers were confused and rude. The water glasses were dirty and after placing our orders waited close to 2 hours for grilled cheese and a salad. We spoke to management and even then there was no concern on their part and no arrempt to resolve any... More

We've been to Wildwood every summer for years so I'm not sure why we didn't know about this place. Large restaurant, right on bay. Good food. The night we went they had some radio station there giving away prizes. didn't have to buy tickets they were giving them out as you arrived. We will definitely be back this summer.

This place is a far cry from the former Mariner's Inn at the same location but it serves as an option for families with children. Food is average at best, service is spotty, noisy depending upon the size of the parties near you.

I remember this place when it was still Mariners Inn and IMO the Bayview Inn has always been a good! It's a fun, loud family place and fills up quickly. It doesn't offer a snooty upscale fine dining experience because that's not what the place is about. The food is usually always good, the staff is great, the menu is... More
