This has always been one of our favorite restaurants at the beach and you don't have to dress up to enjoy the elegant presentations and delicious foods. We recently went to see a friend play his guitar in the bar, nice, quite, lovely views and a delightful change to the "Bar Menu"...Neighbor to Neighbor menu is a three course meal... More

Don't know where the host or hostess was when we arrived but within a couple of minutes our waiter Van had us seated at table where we began watching the view of Selitz Bay with a lovely White Egret flying in to join a sandpiper looking for a snack. Van was a great waiter. He was prompt and attentive. I... More

OMG the food was art, my husband and I go when things are not great in life, because the gourmet dinner and excellent service and outstanding wine pairings changes perspective and makes it all better,

You seldom find a restaurant that takes your breath away as you walk in. We lucked out as we had no reservation for dinner. We were placed at a corner table. Windows on three sides of the restaurant and we got two of them. Floor to ceiling, no kidding. We overlooked a cove and out into the Pacific as the... More

While the view is unbeatable, the service and food didn't live up to the sights. We had some dietary restrictions and asked to substitute the homemade potato chips for salads. The wait person was accommodating. When our dinners came, however, the chips were still on the plate, so we clarified that we had ordered salads to replace the chips, and... More

Hello, hedgehogOuray! I'm so sorry that you did not enjoy your visit to our bar and the food prepared for you. Had I known this while you were here, I certainly would not have charged you for the things that you did not like. If you would be so kind as to contact me, I would be happy to refund... More

Our server was very outgoing and attentive. We tried a couple of appetizers, a salad and the duck entree. We enjoyed the crab cakes, but the clam appetizer was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend it. The mesclun salad was very good. I love duck and order it when possible. While good, the duck entree didn't seem as flavorful and... More

Staff at our hotel discouraged us from going here without a reservation, but we were warmly welcomed by the manager on our arrival and provided a choice table by the window. Just perfect to enjoy the sunset. Great list of wines by the bottle and glass. Our meal was delicious. Far and away the best clams in Oregon (and we... More

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

Hi, AshleeTC! Thank you once again for visiting The Bay House. It was a pleasure to have you with us. I'm very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the food prepared for you, though I'm uncertain as to what you mean by, "The food is good - but really was not great." I'm especially confused because we don't... 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
