Both good and bad points. Craft beer selection is good, as is location right across from the harbor. Lots of big TV screens. But in both of our visits, severely understaffed, making service VERY slow. And although I'm a long-time Restaurant.com user, this is the first place to ever say they had never been part of the program and would... More

My sister and I had a delicious lunch in Sitka at the Bayview. The it is centrally located, has good views and the food was tasty and affordable.

Stopped in for casual dining and beer drinking and came away pleased. Buffalo burger was great, bacon cheese fries tasty, beer battered fried pickles yummy. Lots of craft beers available as well as the standards. Fairly extensive pub food menu. Well stocked bars. Ample servings, well presented. Not fine dining by any standard but very acceptable and enjoyable place. Lots... More

Right on the waterfront. Crowded, especially when a cruise ship is in port. Good service; food ok. Can be noisy.

We lunched here a couple of times whilst in Sitka. Good range of beers to keep both of us happy and the food was fine for lunch, especially the Reuben sandwich. Service was quick and attentive. Not so keen on the disposable plastic tableware though.

In previous years we have had a jolly time and great food. Over the past couple of years we have noted less enthusiasm to the food served and the service. This year we were looking toward a changed offering and was the same as last year, just Ho Ho, nothing special except for the view. We will not plan on... More

Ate here our last night in AK. Right on Bay and close to both best motels. Excellent F&C and great atmosphere. Mostly locals there. Highly recommend.

We stopped for a late lunch about 2 after a long morning hike. It was not crowded at that time. We shared a very good brisket sandwich special ($20) with delicious carrot & parsnip fries and a nice cole slaw, sweet and unusual. Hubby enjoyed two local beers recommended by the very friendly server. She asked about our plans for... More

Tried getting into Sitka's #1 restaurant but couldn't, so we walked around a bit and settled on Bayview. A bit crowded and noisy, not the place for a quiet romantic dinner but an OK pub atmosphere with a decent view. Our waitress stopped by, introduced herself and took our drink orders. In a few minutes, someone who looked like another... More

Tourist hang out. Expensive. Beer selection really good. Service responsiveness good. Food mediocre. I wouldn't go back.
