We had not been her for nine years. Last time, it was under remodel and a bit disjointed. Now it is a four diamond polished jewel with awesome service and fantastic fine food. Service was outstanding and the food was as explained. Loved it.

First time but not the last dining at The Bay House. We ate in the lounge, lovely atmosphere. Everything from the small plate menu was fantastic, Pork belly with apple butter greens, polenta~~I'll stop there because I don't want to describe any thing wrong. We will be making reservations and trying out their dining room.

We didn't actually eat here this visit (a 2 year old and 5 month old wouldn't do much for the excellent ambience of the Bay House), but I didn't post reviews on our previous visits. Our first meal here was on our honeymoon. The food was and has remained stellar. The service, attention to detail, and incredible talent of the... More

Stephen is the proprietor and has one of the best wine lists in Oregon! Their lounge ( 3 courses for $25 ) is one of the best values on the coast.

A gem!! Great food, great service, generous pour, and the women's restroom has a fireplace! You must go here! Don't go to Salishan restaurants. This is the place! Our cheese plate appetizer was fresh, bountiful and delicious! The fish was heaven. My martini was perfect and the wine selection is very good!

One is greeted and treated as a regular patron of the restaurant even on a first visit. There is a very strong management presence. The food is divine and the views are spectacular. This is worth a special trip.

This place leaves your heart and tummy full and happy. My boyfriend and I have eaten here twice. Both times were worth every penny. The first was for my birthday (2 years ago) and the server kindly acknowledged my day with no large huzzah, but a simple sprinkle of rose petals and confetti on the table. The first meal was...
