We went back to Bay View because we had a good experience a couple of years ago. We won't go back again. I had the Duck which was pretty much tasteless. My husband ordered fish and chips and his description was "a little bit of...More

This restaurant is attached to the Best Western Pierpoint Inn but it is a separate entity. It has a great view of the river and bridge. The food was very good and the service was excellent.

Had dinner here last night. Salad was large and super fresh. Great brushetta and long island ice tea. Special was spaghetti with meatballs. Very tasty and plentiful. Good service.

Love the added spice to this favorite winter soup. Red blend wine was also a delight! Only one server made the wait for service a bit longer than I would have liked but an extra glass of red on the house was nice compensation.

Thank you for dining with us at the Bay View Bistro. We are pleased you enjoyed the made-to-order Cioppino with the little extra spice the way you like it. Making every selection when order allows us to customize the dish to each individual palate.

The food is pretty good and the menu is varied. Staff friendly and attentive. Ambience is a tad Spartan. Tables are small, making it a little cramped for dinner for 4. We'd definitely return, but perhaps for lunch rather than dinner.

We had dinner there via room service, and then breakfast the next day. Everything is housemade, reasonably priced, and delicious. I would go back to the Pier Point Inn for the food alone.More

The food was great and was the service. We ordered the fresh cod special and the halibut entree. Yummy. Beautiful view of the Siuslaw River too. Right off Hwy 101.

Description
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.
