We are Bayfield locals who like to enjoy a nice quiet dinner out after all the tourists have gone home for the season. Although the food and wine selections were nice and the wait staff attentive, we found it very strange that the dining room's...choice of background music was rap. I'm a lover of all music genres, but rap is distracting when you're trying to concentrate on what your dining companion is saying. Other local diners we knew who were there at the same time said they've experienced this in the past in the Bayfield Inn's dining room and didn't care for it. We did mention our concerns to the gal at the front desk that evening, but I'm not sure if she was in a position to make any changes. She said she thought the music is chosen by the younger members of the wait staff. So...Bayfield Inn Restaurant management, if you're reading this please consider making a change in this area. We'd like to come back but are a bit hesitant now. Thanks!More

We stayed at the Inn and had two dinners here. Service was fantastic and the food was great too. Soups, salads, and fish were our choices. Good volume and well prepared and delivered quickly. They refilled our ice tea glasses three times without asking. Four...thumbs up!More

We ate our mid-afternoon lunch up top and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. The burgers were first rate and we highly recommend this stop.

The best part of this restaurant is the view of the bay. Service was good but our food was just okay.

Ate breakfast here one morning. The prices were a bit higher than some other places but worth it. Staff was good and breakfast chow top notch. We will return. Eggs benedict very good.

Nothing special to look at, although the view from the small dining room is nice. Very friendly server when we were there. Breakfast was exceptionally good with varied choices.

We ate here our first evening in Bayfield, and the food was fantastic. The cedar plank whitefish was exquisite. We also chose the outdoor seating on the roof, which gave us a lovely view of the harbor. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful, too. We...did have to wait a while for our food, since the place was quite busy when we were there, but this food is worth waiting for.More

Went up to the deck to have dinner. The fish and chips was very good, along with cedar plank whitefish. It's a place your order at the bar type of deal but still was a nice dinner.

The upstairs deck was a nice outdoor view. The frozen drinks were overpriced and not great. Stick to a basic cocktail. We ordered the chicken nachos which were amazing and the service was quick. The next night we ate at the Lakeside dining room. The...scallops were amazing. I wasn’t a fan of the house salad which comes with a maple dressing. Next time I’d order the Caesar which my husband got, and it was delicious. He ordered an Old Fashioned which wasn’t great. I had a glass of wine, which was a generous pour. It was a pricey dinner overall, but we knew that going in. We were not impressed with the automatic 5% surcharge to tip the kitchen staff. Just pay your staff and reflect that in the pricing instead of the fine print. The view was amazing!More

Awesome food, great service. Best cheese curds in Wisconsin - and that’s saying something. The cauliflower flatbread and whitefish tacos were both delicious. Service was first-rate!
