We ate at your restaurant Friday night the 24th of August. We were told about an amazing Cioppino, but it wasn’t on the menu. I asked if the Chef would be able to create it that night and I was amazed the answer came back...More

After a long day traveling it was wonderful to be able to get a good meal without having to leave the restaurant. Great service, tasty food. We even bought a bottle of reasonably priced wine to take back to the room.

Went to the Bay View Bistro for dinner at 4pm on a Saturday. We were the first people to arrive. Staff was friendly, we highly suggest the Beer Battered Prawns. Amazing view!

  • This restaurant is at Best Western Pier Point Inn
Nestled above the Siuslaw River, the Bay View Bistro is located inside the Best Western Pier Point Inn but this is NOT your average hotel restaurant. Come for the spectacular view, but stay for the delicious food and superior service. The Bay View Bistro has a cozy, beautiful bar and dining room overlooking Old Town Florence, the historic Siuslaw Bridge and Siuslaw River. We have a wonderful happy hour, early bird specials and chalkboard specials changing daily. Reservations Recommended.
