Wonderful anniversary dinner celebration. We purchased the Tasting Menu selection with paired wines. Each course was elegantly presented, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Would gladly recommend this restaurant to people seeking a fine dining experience in the Lincoln City area. D

We come to Lincoln City often from Portland, so er aren't strangers to the Bay House. Always great, last night was fabulous! We stayed in the bar which is a lovely place to eat enjoying a gorgeous sunset across the bay.

My wife and I ate here on the last night of a ten day driving trip, and it was a memorable experience. We had a wonderful corner table which overlooks the Bay, and enjoyed the Sunset during dinner. We had the Chef's tasting menu, which I would highly recommend, because the choices on the a la cart menu are limited.... More

Wonderful experience, beautiful sunset view, great service, great food. It was my birthday so they sprinkled birthday confetti on the table and my dessert had a candle. Best Halibut ever! Worth every penny!!

We dined at The Bay House on the last night of our week-long stay on the Oregon Coast. Our reservation was for 6:30, and because the day had been sunny and warm, the window table we were seated at had a stunning view SW over the bay. Though the menu isn't extensive, it's thought-provoking in the selections. Our drinks were... More

The servers were very professional & very helpful/knowledgeable on the extensive wine list. The food was great but a little too expensive. The view is flawless and really shows off the gorgeous Oregon Coast. Priceless location.

What a special place! It has an amazing view with welcoming and attentive staff. We had the tasting menu, and it was fabulous! Chef Ryan seared the scalloped beautifully, the tenderloin was the perfect temp, and the duck was full of flavor. Loved the various roasted vegetables, purees, and sauces, too. Oh, and I can't forget about the dessert; carrot... More

I took my husband to a birthday dinner at the Bay House, they were very attentive and nice. I'm gluten free and they took very good care of my needs. I had the filet and my husband had the scallops. The presentation was great and the food excellent. They also had a flourless chocolate cake for us to enjoy.
