You cannot pick a bad seat in this restaurant! All tables have a view of the bay. The food is good - but really was not great. We shared a wedge salad and the salmon. They did split the food for us in the kitchen, but did not inform us there would be a charge for the split. It was... More

My family and I have been going to the Bay House for many years. We are usually there during summer trips. This restaurant manages to be fancy enough for a special occasion but also casual. The food is very good. It is a little spendy, but there is nothing better or comparable in the area. The ambience is great, often... More

The Staff at the Bay House were able to take wonderful care of a multi-generational group at a birthday party. There were 24 of us and starting with light appetizers and progressing thru an off the menu dinner there was not a hiccup. The seafood was excellent as you would expect, but we got a chance to see much of... More

My parent's started going to the Bay House years ago and it has always been their favorite restaurant on the Oregon Coast. They passed the love of the restaurant on to us kids and we love it as well! A few years ago mom and I took the two grandson's on a summer vacation to the coast. The boys were... More

Where do I begin? I had friends in from out of town and wanted to take them to a nice restaurant in Lincoln City. We haven't really found a place in Lincoln city that we really enjoyed till now. The bay house was perfect from beginning to end. Service was spot on. The 3 courses for $25 in the lounge... More

The service and the wine selection was on point. But the food was so unappetizing I couldn't even finish any course. Soup course was supposed to be Roasted Corn, but no one at my table of 6 could find that flavor. Tasted of pure cream and butter only. Beef tasted old, and I don't mean aged. The potato gratin could... More

Stephen W, Owner at The Bay House, responded to this review

Yeah, thanks for that, Nancy T. I don't really know how to respond to this kind of review, mostly because I don't believe that you were actually here. As a party of 6 who supposedly joined us in September, I can say that we've only had 4 parties of this size so far this month. Without exception, I can recall... More

We celebrated our anniversary belatedly at the Bay House. We were on a relaxed RV trip down the Oregon Coast and couldn't find a worthy restaurant. The dinner was just perfect, sharing a crab cake starter, then a decadent bowl of creamed roasted garlic soup, finishing with beautiful entrees of salmon and beef. Amazing wine list...So many special bottles. Our... More
